Don't run over the cord Other than that a neighbor has been happy with hers for several years. I have no opinion on brands.

Well, if you can afford it, I'd suggest the Neuton batterymowers. No cord to deal with. (There'd be no way I could manage a corded mower over the whole of my 45' x 300' lot anyway--though lots of that is hardscape or gardens, there are lawn areas all the way to the back.)
I have no connection, other than as a customer. I have the smaller, original version (like the CE 5.2), though if I were shopping now I might get the wider (and heavier) CE 6.2.

I really like the fact that the batteries are easily removed. This is a huge advantage over other cordless mowers. My Neuton has proven much more reliable than the B&D mower I had before and still cuts the whole lawn on one charge. (With a spare battery available if needed.)
It's quiet enough that I can listen to my radio while I mow without threatening my ears. Quiet enough that people have stopped and asked about the mower.

OK for small lawns. Won't be too convenient for large lawns, unless you have sufficient extension cords. Like a corded upright vacuum cleaner, you need to keep the cord out of the way of the mower. I used to mow my aunt's small lawn with her corded electric mower. It was a PITA going around trees and other obstacles.
