Our tests of the week
Roborock Q8 Max+: excellent value for money
If you are looking for a high-performance robot vacuum cleaner for less than 600 euros, the Roborock Q8 Max+ is for you. It is a device that offers very good suction power, efficient mopping, and a complete and intuitive application. Obstacle management is good and the autonomy of the vacuum cleaner is satisfactory. Small downsides, the emptying station is noisy and we would have appreciated more suction bags supplied with the device.

Razer Edge: a good console that still has room for improvement
The Razer Edge is a console whose autonomy and good performance we appreciated during our test. The screen is nice, as is the USB-C smartphone controller that comes with the console. But the Razer Edge also has some annoying flaws. The screen/border ratio is not ideal and the Nexus software could be better. We also feel the limits of the 6 GB offered by Razer, especially at this price and in the face of the competition.
