I think the Athlet is one of the best cordless sticks you can buy. Obviously itís not particularly agile when it comes to above floor cleaning but if you just want it for daily cleaning of your floors, theyíre probably the best thing out there.
Saying that, I have recently acquired a Hoover Velocity cordless full size upright, and for the price, £80-odd, itís not bad at all, but I would not recommend their other cordless cleaners one bit. Vax seem a little better but would still not recommend. I had a Shark cordless last year and had nothing but trouble with it and overall it was rather lousy.
Generally speaking if your cordless is just for quick cleaning of floors (which it should be!) then the Bosch is probably the best thing out there!
