Fabulous product

I purchased this vacuum cleaner to replace a terrible Hoover machine that the previous tenants left behind. The Phillips is fantastic. For such a small unit the suction is amazing. The carpets feel much cleaner than they ever did with the previous vacuum. The performance on hard wood floors is great too. I find the attachments and the unit itself to all be of very high quality. It’s really easy to take the old bag out and put a new one in. I bought the Phillips kit that comes with the lemon air freshener which is a nice touch. Overall very happy with the product and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anybody.

Purchased in May 2018 at Farmers.

Power in a small package

I was looking for a good value compact vacuum for my apartment and am delighted with the result. wonderfully easy to use and store and excellent suction on carpets and hard floors. Love the built in brush to switch over to skirting boards, furniture, etc. Oh and the price was great too. Love this vacuum so much I also bought one for my neighbour!

Purchased in April 2019 for $120.00.

Hi Jez, Thanks for sharing this here with us. It's great to read the Performer Compact made your life a little easier. And, how nice you've bought one for your neighbor as well. You know what they say: "a good neighbor is worth more than a distant friend". Well, that's absolutely true in this case. We hope your neighbor will be just as happy as you. Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

Good

I am happy with the performance of this vacuum cleaner. It has a good suction power and I can strongly affirm that as my house has carpet all over. It also is easy to clean. Another thing that I like about this product is that it does not require a bag for the dust.

Hey, Thank you for leaving us a review. Great to hear the vacuum cleaner is working so well for you. :) The Philips Australia Team.

Such a powerful vac!

Just bought one of these from Farmers (in NZ) on sale. Was super surprised and impressed by the powerful suction of it on first try. Based on my first go with it, I certainly recommend it. Plus, it looks very trendy with an LED line on the vac to indicate it is turned on.
