We need a cordless cleaner to replace the Dyson V6 Animal that daughter bought us and we leant her a while back. She is very happy with the convenience and performance (as we were before we 'lost it'). ;-)
We recently got a Gtech Mk2 K9 combo for Mum and she too is very happy with the convenience and performance.
I seem to remember others here suggesting other makes / models of cordless cleaner that they were very happy with and were presumably cheaper than the Dyson / Gtech offerings and would be equally capable and easy to get spares for if required?
For us it would need to be good for the car / stairs (small handheld formal) and quick runs over the floors etc.
We still have the Henry / Miele for building cleanup and 'full' cleaning jobs.

p.s. OOI, A mate recently bought a fairly expensive Vax multi-roller carpet washer / cleaner and it has failed fairly quickly, down to poor design (small plain metal bearings etc).
