Rated 4 out of 5 by karhus Amazing suction for such a small vacuum!
Overall I am very impressed with this vacuum. The suction on it is incredible and after close inspection of my floors after vacuuming I could only find the smallest amount of hair left behind. It really did an excellent job. Philips have made an excellent job of this vacuum by making it super lightweight which allows you to manoeuvre it around the home easily and carry it up and down the stairs if need be. I love the fact that it has an extendable pipe to get to hard to reach places and on that score I found it faultless. This has a replaceable dust bag and in my opinion if you have a large house or area to vacuum it could do with being a bit bigger and this is the reason that I have awarded it 4 stars. I have to say that the anti allergy filter is a major selling point to me as my two sons have a dust allergy and my daughter suffers badly with asthma. There has been a significant change for the better in her asthma since using this vacuum and my sons seem much better too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tower91 Great all round hoover
The hoover has an abundance of features that make it ideal for any surface. The Tri-Active+ nozzle for me is ideal as it eases over carpet and hard floor as well as being great on furniture. For the pet hair nozzle, whilst it was superior on carpet for cleaning hair, it did not manage to get all the hair and in some cases i still had to use a rubber brush first and then hoover again. But all in all this was the best hoover I have had for pet hair.
The overall design of the hoover is nice and whilst a little heavy for a small hoover it is very mobile and move on flooring easily and has rubber cover to prevent any damage if it bangs into a wall or furniture.
Since having this hoover I have noticed my home seems less dusty and as a result, people are having less runny noses and puffy eyes! The waste bags whilst small, hold a surprising amount of waste and with two molting dogs it managed several full house cleans before it needed changing

Rated 5 out of 5 by sarah76 fantastic little vacuum great suction
The vacuum cleaner came neatly packaged in only a couple of parts. The nozzle easily clipped into the main cylinder the handle on to the nozzle then your choice of brush head.
One head is blade like this is for laminate or lino type floors. This really does the job. I like this tool it cleans dust from all corners of my kitcen floor and also handy for removing cobwebs and dust from the walls.
The next head is the turbo tool. To be quite honest this is the only part I was disappointed with. It basically made fur balls on the carpet.
The third and best head was the brush head. It has brushes around the sides that really help get to the edges of the room. This head also adjusts for use on rugs. This is the main tool I use. I find it lifts dog hair and dust brilliantly. The main handle has a sofa/soft furnishing tool that is great for cleaning the sofa car etc I found this tool great on the stairs removing all dog hair. The suction on this vacuum is fantastic it has lifted the pile on my old carpets beautifully. The carpets look and feel fresher and cleaner. The nozzle tool has removed dust from areas I haven't been able to get to for years. The vacuum cleaner is very lightweightt I can manage it easily up and down the stairs. It comes apart easily and fits neatly under the bed for storage. The house feels generally cleaner the air fresher and less dust this is fantastic for people who have dust allergies. It removes dog hair from carpets and dust from hard surfaces. A fantastic little product that I would recommend to any of my friends especially allergy sufferer's as it removes so much dust and fur etc from the home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by saruche Lightweight but Powerfull
An excellent powerful light weight vacuum cleaner. As soon as I unboxed the vacuum cleaner I was quite impressed by the design and light weight. I was however a bit sceptical on how it will perform. Once I set it up I was immediately impressed with the suction power. I have pet cats which shed a lot of hair on the carpet. Philips vacuum cleaner immediately picked up all the hair on the carpet and left it absolutely. I used the 3in! nozzle on the carpet which has a rotating brush and was very effective in picking up the dust. 3in! nozzle can also be used on hard flooring. I tried using it on the laminate floor in the kitchen and corridors and it was able to pick up dust and debris very well.
A very useful feature on the vacuum cleaner is the adjustment for suction power. There is a dial on the vaccum cleaner which can be rotated to select the suction level. I go for the lowest level when cleaning the curtains and highest level when cleaning the carpets.
I have also noticed that since I started using the vacuum cleaner my cleaning time has reduced considerably as I don't need to repeatedly go over places to make sure all the pet hair has been removed.
I will highly recommend this product for anyone especially if you have pets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Adz123 Great lightweight product
This product is very light which makes vacuuming easier. It was easy to carry it up the stairs. It's very easy to use - I have read the instructions beforehand but you don't even have to do that to grasp the idea. It's easy to switch between different surfaces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TechnoReviews This is an excellent super lightweight, multi-function vacuum cleaner which is perfect for people with pets and/or allergens!
I'm going to be giving a full 100% unbiased and honest review on this Philips Performer Active Bagged Vacuum Cleaner which is ideal for people with pets and allergens. When purchasing products, I personally rely on reviews to tell me whether or not if this product is worth purchasing and I can say that this vacuum cleaner is the best vacuum cleaner I've had! I just wish I had saw this prior to purchasing that my other hoover as I definitely would have preferred to have ordered this vacuum cleaner!
As can be expected, when I received this vacuum cleaner it came fully sealed in a Philips branded box which had several pictures, paragraphs of text and features around the box. On the front of the box you will see a picture of the vacuum cleaner itself, alongside several amounts of descriptive text about the features of the hoover, what the accessories do and the energy levels. Taking a look around the side of the box (as can be seen in the pictures attached to this review) you will be able to see how the vacuum cleaner has been designed to work through the airflow max technology. Taking a look at the top of the box is where you will be able to see a full description of the different modes, features and accessories. Once you get inside of the box, you will find the following contents which are waiting for you to set them up:
- 1x Pack of Instruction Manuals, Energy Levels, Important Information Booklet and Guarantee Information.
- 1x Philips Performer Active Vacuum Cleaner Base itself.
- 5x Vacuum Cleaner Attachments (TriActive+, TurboBrush, Hard Floor Nozzle, Integrated Brush and Crevice Tool).
- 1x Vacuum Cleaner Hose.
- 1x Telescopic Extension Adjustable Tube.
Setting up this vacuum cleaner is very easy to figure out by yourself as although the instruction manuals feature detailed pictures there is no text, however this isn't necessary. Once you take everything out of the box, lay everything separately on the ground. Take the vacuum cleaner hose and attach the shaped end into the vacuum cleaner suction hole which should click when attached. Once attached, take the telescopic extension adjustable tube and attach this to the other end of the hose. One of the attachments that you should receive is a crevice tool and holder. Attach the crevice tool to the holder and then attach this to your preferred location on the adjustable tube. Next, choose which vacuum cleaner attachment you want to use. Dependant on what attachment you're using, adjust the dial on the hoover for the right mode and then power on to start cleaning.
The main purpose of this Philips Performer Active Vacuum Cleaner is to filter 99% of the smallest of all particles between 0.3 and 10 microns whether that would be dust, pet hair or pollen. It is designed to help you have a cleaner home as well as protecting both you and your family from allergens. It does this by reducing allergy triggers through the vacuum cleaners filtration process and powerful performance levels both on hard-floor & carpet. Having taken a thorough look around this vacuum cleaner it has a very nice, sleek looking design to it. The vacuum cleaner itself seems to be made out of a strong plastic which looks and feels that if it was to get hit off doorways or walls, it wouldn't break easily. Prior to testing the hoover, I researched the key features of this hoover and one of them was that it's lightweight. This is exactly that! When it came to testing the vacuum cleaner, I first picked it up to change it's position and was shocked at how super lightweight it was. Alongside of it being super lightweight there is also a very comfortable handle at the top of the vacuum cleaner, which makes it very easy to carry around. Taking a look at the bottom/back of the hoover you will find a third wheel. This third wheel makes it very easy to manoeuvre the hoover around my house as it has a 360 degree rotation, allowing you to change it's position very easily. When I saw the telescopic extension adjustable tube, I was shocked to say the least. As I'm a 6ft 4" man, I normally have to overreach to get into tight corners or smaller areas. With this extension tube, it allows me to stand upright in my normal position and at a click of a button, I can get into those hard to reach places very easily.
Having several attachments with this hoover allows you to use a different attachment for a different use. The TriActive+'s main feature is that it has triple suction with side brushes which means that with every stroke it will deliver an immediate and excellent result on both carpets and hardfloors. The TurboBrush is specifically designed for pet hair and carpets removing both pet hair & dust, as well as any other rubbish. The brush inside of the nozzle actively removes small dust particles and pet hair. On the other hand the Hard Floor Nozzle as can be told from the title, is specifically designed for hardfloors. The special brush on the nozzle is designed to make it especially appropriate for the thorough cleaning of hardfloors without causing any damage. The round integrated brush is best used for general hard surface dusting and is a must use for anywhere which has a pileup of dust. The bristles on the brush are perfect for cleaning stubborn areas around your home without scratching the surface. I use this particular brush for getting into tight corners and to remove all necessary dust along skirting boards, picture frames & wall-units. The last attachment is the crevice tool which is an essential tool for cleaning around your home and getting into tight areas such as; down the side of your sofa, on/around car seats and in car door's. This crevice tool has been perfectly designed as it allows you to get into tight areas where you normally couldn't get into with your vacuum cleaner.
- Super lightweight, don't have to put much effort into carrying this vacuum cleaner.
- Looks fantastic, has a very sleek looking finish to it.
- Small for a vacuum cleaner, allowing you to store it away not taking up much space.
- You receive multiple attachments which allows you to use different attachments for different uses.
- Automatic cord reeling system. Just click the plug button on the front and you don't have to worry about wrapping up the plug.
- If I was too be very picky, the only negative about this hoover is that the cable isn't long enough for my house as explained in the summary.
‣‣ My Opinion/Summary;
As previously stated, this has to be the best vacuum cleaner that I've ever had the pleasure of owning. I'm in love with the amount of different features and positives that this vacuum cleaner has whether that would be because it's portable, super lightweight, small allowing to store away with room, it has multi-functions, several attachments and a telescopic extension tube. I have a female border collie which shreds a lot of hair throughout the year, which means that we have to hoover on-the-go. With this Philips Active Bagged Vacuum Cleaner it makes this process a whole lot easier with the portability. In my household downstairs we have laminate flooring and upstairs we have carpet flooring. Having a hoover which is specifically designed to work on both surfaces is fantastic. With my previous hoover I would often find myself having to go over what I had already been over to make sure that the pet hair had been picked up. With the TriActive+ attachment and the way it is designed, I only have to go over the carpet once or twice which is much better. Although none of the people within my household suffer from allergens, I have read that this does work for those that do suffer from allergens. The power that this vacuum cleaner has is immense, it picks up every last bit of dirt necessary. As previously mentioned the only negative if I was too be very picky about this hoover is that the cable isn't long enough for my house. I previously mentioned that this vacuum cleaner has a extra-long cable, however it's not long enough for my household but will be for most. I live in a six bedroom house which basically means that I live in a very big house. I would often find myself having to switch the plug from one side of the house to the other, when it came to cleaning the other side. Apart from this, which isn't a big issue, I'm absolutely in love with this vacuum cleaner and look forward to using it. This vacuum cleaner is brilliant, 5/5 stars!
If you're looking for a vacuum cleaner to purchase, I would definitely recommend purchasing this Philips Active Bagged Vacuum Cleaner!

On the weekend did general cleaning in the house. I was in seventh heaven thanks to vacuum-cleaner. It is amazing, the air in my home is a lot better, I feel a huge difference! I suffer from allergies and vacuuming frequently to get rid of the dust and allergens from the air, but only Philips Vacuum Cleaner changed my life. I do not have a dripping nose all the time. Cleaning up is now an easy, fast and perfect! Vacuum cleaner looks so modernly and it is smart. So far so good, I'm love this vacuum cleaner.
Easily gets rid of dust and hair from any surface. Cleaning up of the multi-functional vacuum cleaner is simply a pleasure. Has more suction, and uses less power than other vacuum cleaner. The power cord is long, which is a huge advantage, because you do not have to constantly change the power socket. I would highly recommend this to everyone and especially pet owners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jinglebob22 Great if you have pets!
So I've been using the Philips performer active bagged for a few weeks now. When it arrived I instantly opened and started to test it. The vacuum came packaged well and after a few clicks was ready to use. Initially I used the carpet attachement which has a rotating head but found this to be abbot jerky and not very easy to move across my carpet. I then switched to the tri activ attachment which made a world of difference, brought all of the cat fur up out of my carpet easily and quickly. The suction power is fantastic and using the brush head built in attachment work really well on furniture and skirting. Overall my carpet is looking much better as it seems to get down into the carpet fibres really well and pull up all of the dust and fur.
