    My house was under renovation. I have a dog and the reno at the time is mostly deconstruction on the other side of the house. My dog has serious separation anxiety at places away from home; so I didn't want to stay at a hotel longer than I needed to. I also didn't think it was going to bother me too much before they start on the floors (which won't happen till 2 weeks later). And yet I woke up every morning with itchy red eyes, heaving and coughing, and tired. I researched a bit, and found that BlueAir's big units are the highest rated purifiers on Consumer Report. I didn't want to spend the big money on air purifiers yet, and I saw this Blue Pure 411 on sale at BB for $79.99. I was hoping it to be fantastic, so I could sleep better. First night using this before bed, I turned this thing on highest for like 4 hours in my bedroom; it was really loud. I turned it down low when I did go to bed; it was quiet, no louder than my CPAP (changed my CPAP filters while at it). Next morning, I woke up without heaving and coughing, but my eyes are still itchy and red. I left it on for the whole work day, got home and slept, and same thing next morning. After the third night, my cough is back, no heaving though. I called my insurance company and asked them to put me in a dog friendly hotel ASAP. I used this for 2 days and 3 nights. I almost kept it to be honest, but I did wind up returning it on the very last day that I could return it. I don't know if my expectations for an air purifier that's regularly priced at $99.99 is too high.

      Hi there! I'm sorry to hear about your experience here. Do you happen to know the square footage of the space where you had the 411? I only ask because that's our smallest unit and it may have been in too large a space to be effective. We can still help here. Please reach out to our customer experience team at Info@blueair.com blueair

    So I bought this unit for my office. It is a good looking unit and started out o.k. It seemed to be fairly quiet and moved a fair amount of air. After about a month of running it, the unit has gotten progressively louder. Also, The filter cover which I guess is meant to be washable is a disgusting mess. As this is for my office, I guess I am supposed to remove this cover without having dust fly all over the office, transport it home, wash it and bring it back. Not sure who thought this was a good idea. I would challenge anyone with allergies to remove this cover without having their eyes water and turn red and going into a full fledged sneezing attack. Yes, the covers are a cute idea, but they are hardly functional.

    You can tell the difference in the air

    I bought a second unit of this after owning one for almost two months. I'm no expert on air purifiers but I can tell a before and after in the air quality in my room. The device is really light, has three different speed settings and the slowest one it's perfect for sleeping (you really can't hear it). The filter replacement cost $20 and you have to replace it after 6 months, that's cheaper than the $30 GermGuardian air purifier filter replacement (which I used to own). It's a little bit bigger from what I was expecting the first time, but that wouldn't stop me from recommend it.

    This blue air filter made the world of difference during the fires last year. I like that you can wash the outer filter to reuse it, making maintenance also affordable. It's very light. The highest speed you can hear if you're trying to sleep, so I just put it on medium and you can't hear it at all. Very good product for those who want to have clean air for an affordable rate. I'll buy again!

    We purchased this to help clean up the pollen in the air during the heavy season. Works like a charm and even on full blast, these are rather quiet. The external cover is removable for cleaning. Really decent cleaners for the price. Purchased 3 of these in total.

    All the hype online about this thing made me buy it. It's okay as a purifier. The noise level between the 2 and 3 setting is ridiculous - very noisy on 3 for a small purifier. It doesn't seem to work great, but I got it on sale. Don't think it's necessarily worth the money at full price though.

    Three different speeds, third being the loudest. First two speeds are quiet and you can sleep through the noise, but if you're a light sleeper you may have difficulties with the noise level. Does what the descriptions says, room feels very light and clean.

    I actually love this because I do smoke cigarettes and really helps to neutralize the smell. When turned on it’s lowest option it makes zero noise and the other options aren’t as bothersome as I thought it would be. Easy to clean as well
