Great for our 2-bed carpeted apartment with dog
Great vacuum - picks up a tonne of stuff out of the carpet. Our 2-bed apartment is fully carpeted so we invested in this vacuum a few months ago and it works a charm. Picks up all of the hair from our long-haired dog. The carpet looks visibly much cleaner after a vacuum which we do a couple of times a week.
Works on the tiled surfaces in our kitchens and bathrooms also. The powerhead is great! And the unit and powerhead are pretty quiet. Stable and doesn't tip, and it also pretty lightweight, even with the special head.

Omg I'm in love
For so many years I kept buying cheap vacuum cleaners and then replacing them with another one. This year I bought a slightly more expensive one with a well known brand name and omg I'm so impressed. First vacuum I filled two bags that's how much the other vacs left behind. My carpet is so clean.

Worst vacuum ever
Went to Godfreys around July 2019 and was talked into this. So awkward to move around, is heavy, grip type handle is a pain, constantly tips over, hose gets twisted and the short cord is irritating. Good suction on carpet, removes alot of pet hair, ok on the tiled areas. Hard to store. Paid $459.00.
I think in all honesty it's the worst vacuum I have bought in 37 years. Turned me off Hoover for life now.
I will go and get the stick vacuum I wanted to start with.

The most versatile vacuum cleaner I have ever had
I don't often call into shopping mall based vacuum cleaner shops, so this was a first. Our treasured Shark vacuum cleaner died and needed replacement. I spent ages on the internet building a short list and then happened on the Hoover Action powerhead. The shop associate (Godfrey's) was extremely helpful and really understood my needs which were: super compact yet powerful, easy to put away, long and retractable cord, motorised head, quiet when in use, good suction, bagless, stable when in use (ie. no tipping). Not too ugly. Well, the colour is...a bit garish but every other box was ticked and more. The floor LED lights are bright and handy. We have 2 rooms of carpet, the rest wood and tiles. Perfect. Our old accessories fitted so I don't need Hoover's rather lightweight ones. Long hose, adjustable wand, comfy handle and so very easy to empty and clean. It is mid-range price-wise but good value due to its quality. My 2 year old grand-daughter can even use it. And it tucks away neatly into a very small space. Very happy with the choice (and got a trade in for the broken Shark as well).

Bought the Hoover Pet Action to replace the wonderful little Hoover Smart. I explained that I had a small apartment style living where storage was a consideration to purchase. I was told that this was an upgrade to the Smart.
Totally disappointed with the Hoover Action Pet. Suction was acceptable however
1. The cleaner is heavy and not very maneuverable. It would frequently tip over onto its side or back
2. The head is so large that it would not easily fit under furniture
3. It is bulky to store, requiring to be broken down into individual parts before stowing. This made the cleaning process less convenient.
The Hoover Smart had just as good suction, and none of the issues mentioned above.

It is difficult to believe a company that has been making this equipment for 100 years could develop such a frustrating machine. As mentioned by others the cord is a bit on the short side, but the deal breaker for me is the poor tracking which causes the machine to tip over. As you pull it along you may as well flip a coin as to which way it will drive, and if you want it to follow along behind you best results seem to be attained in the upside down position.
Apart from that it works great.
Purchased in August 2017 at Godfreys for $500.00.
don't bother if you have pets
I could have bought a cheaper cleaner but got sucked in by the salesman. The pet feature is useless as the head keep blocking up, the machine tips over by looking at it and the bag capacity is far too small. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. The machine is crap.

Replaced it after 8 months
This vacuum is useless with so many design faults I don't believe that anyone at Hoover actually does the vacuuming. The power cord is too short, the pipe doesn't twist at both ends which kinks continually, the body of the vacuum is too low to the ground and tips over all the time, suction is poor, the dirt collector is too small.

we just bought a 5007ph action pets vac. what setting should the variable speed dial be set to?
The suction strength needed will be different for all flooring types.
There is a guide on the machine showing curtains, upholstery, rugs, carpet and hard floors, the images will light up as the dial is rotated.
