Just What I needed!!
Posted by: BlueAdept from: Madison, WI on
After reading other people's review on other air cleaner. I did some research and this one was the best choice for me. I've been sneezing, running noise and had more allergie problems in the past few months. This item over night made my sleep, sooo much better. Its easy to clean and runs super quiet!! Even at setting 5, the fans still quiet.
I wish it was cheaper, i would of gotten 2 of these. but one isn't too bad.

Not bad but not worth the price
Posted by: Josh from: on
Bought this air purifier to help a dog with allergies to pretty much everything. While I did notice the plasticky smell everyone else notices, it's not anything I wouldn't expect from a brand new product made entirely out of... Wait for it... Plastic.
It moved a great deal of air, and was whisper quiet on every level below 4. What ultimately lead to me returning this product however, was its build quality. The first few nights it worked spot on with no issues, but after about a week I began to notice several mechanical noises from the machine; A low thrumming from the motor became persistant even on "sleep" mode, and was irritating enough to keep me awake at night. I was also able to hear the oscillating motor after a few days, which was a simple fix by turning it off when not needed. These are things that would have been acceptable in a less expensive machine, but with such a high asking price ($249.99 at time of purchase), I expected much higher quality. Another niggle was the insanely bright lights on the top of the unit- had to throw a washcloth over it at night so it didn't light the entire room up, as they are unable to be turned off.
I cannot attest to thr quality of the air during my ownership because I lack the equipment and don't personally have allergies, and I did not notice a decline in the amount of dust at all. The electrostatic filter did begin to change from a bright white to a pale white over a few days though, and a close visual inspection showed what the filter was picking up.
Overall, I'd rate it a 6/10. Had the price been lower I would have better tolerated these issues, but I expect much more quality when I'm being asked for much more of my money.

Saw Quick Results
Posted by: EiTulsa from: Tulsa, OK on
My husband and I have been having a bad dust problem in our house, so we decided to splurge and buy this product. We found a sale at a competitor's store and Best Buy price-matched with no questions or fuss! There was a huge difference noticed overnight. The purifier is very quiet and have a comfortable air flow coming from it. It also smells clean- the odor reducer works very well. My only complaint is that the lights on the top of the machine are a little too bright, but I also prefer my room pitch black at night, so it may be a non-issue. I would very much rather have a clean room and it definitely does that! Very happy and worth the money not having to buy huge filters.

The Smell of Smoke is gone
Posted by: KevinS from: on
I live in an apartment and I would often come home to the smell of smoke that had permeated through the walls from my neighbor's apartment. Since I started running this unit, the smell of smoke is gone. The air feels so much cleaner and I have been sleeping better.

Well worth the cost!!!
Posted by: jaepa from: on
We live outside the city where there are no sidewalks and the road is gravel and we have two dogs. When the sun shined in the front window I noticed shinny specks of dust flying around my living room! That was when we decided on an air purifier. This has not only eliminated the dust but it has eliminated any tell tale smells of the dogs.

Attractive unit...easy to set up and use. Like the fact that it is quiet, however, I found that the unit emitted a terrible plastic odor which remained for approximately 2 weeks. Needed to run it constantly on high to attempt to reduce odor. It seems to clean the air but I have not had to vac the permanent filter yet, so I am unsure of just how well it can be cleaned. The big downfall is that you have to choose which filter to use. A hepa filter is included as well as a odor reduction filter. Would be nice to clear the air of odors while cleaning! Overall, I believe that this unit is comparible to other lesser priced units. The price point on this model can not really be justified as it does nothing different than lesser priced units. Very expensive for something that does nothing special but look nice.

best in the market
Posted by: Newbie from: on
This is the first air purifier I purchased. After reviewing all feedback from other consumers on all like products, I choose this one. The main reason is due to the efficiency of removing pet dander, allergens, and mold. Then the fact that the filter is washable. The cost of annual replacements of the filter is about $62. It also helped that the product is on sale, which was drastically reduced below the other brands. I loved the 5 speed featture, the timer, and oscillating feature. This was an awesome buy. I plan to buy another one to put in my bedroom.

This allergy season has already been kicking me hard, and I had purchased a Winix cabinet HEPA filtered air cleaner last year, but it clearly wasn't up to the task.
Quiet: The Noise level on sleep setting really is just at whisper level. Even on the highest setting it is about half the noise level of my Winix.
Filter indicator: it has a display that shows the filter condition BEFORE It needs to be replaced or cleaned. This is a sore subject for me, as the previous unit I had would just stop working with a "replace filter" light. This is much better thought out.
Effective for allergens: This is working very effectively at removing the pollen, which is my primary concern.
Compact: The unit is heavy, but packs a lot of cleaning and very strong fans into a small cabinet. It is 1/3 the physical size of my Winix, but performs better on everything EXCEPT VOC's where the Winix unit does do a better job. Things like perfume or hairspray will linger longer with the Honeywell, but they DO go away.
There are a lot of LEDS in this thing, all of which are really helpful for seeing at a glance what functions you've selected. That said; some people that require absolute darkness to sleep will find this a bit bright. It doesn't bother me, but I've seen reviews on the Winix air cleaner with fewer lights get pinged for too bright. YMMV.

Works all day
Posted by: AlexP from: on
I like the AirGenius 5 Air Cleaner. I leave it on all day and have noticed less dust in the room. It's great that I don't have to buy expensive replacement filters. The only thing I don't like, is that I am unable to turn off the bright blue lighting from the display at night. I put a hat on top of it and now I'm happy.

great air cleaner
Posted by: cjh123 from: columbus,ohio on
honeywell airgenius 5 HFD 320 air cleaner is useful and works well. 5th level is the highest and will require changing the filter more often. 3 replacements per year are suggested and finding/ buying filters are not obvious.there is a small humming noise which is not too loud and product can swivel from side to side if selected on tap button. easy to move from room to room also.
