      This was the first air purifier that I have purchased. We have one dog and a lot of dust in the air. We use it in the living room and in the bedroom to help clean the air. I noticed a great difference within a few hours. This thing really moves the air on full speed. I like the tower unit which cuts down on floor space, and the UV light is a great night light. The sleep timer is a great feature too so it doesn't run all night (unless you want it to). It is a bit noisy at high speed but very tolerable at lower speeds (5 settings). The fan noise helps put me to sleep though, so it's all good. Drawback: The hand hold at the top/back is off center of balance and its just a slot, with no grips, so it can slip off your fingers when you go to pick it up and move it (most of the weight is at the bottom). Other than that, no complaints. It works great.

      I love this air purifier! It uses HEPA filtration and really does remove airborne particles for a healthier environment. Ideal for asthma and allergy sufferers because it features a 3-in-1 filtration system that removes airborne allergens, such as dust, pet dander, mold spores and plant pollens, to help improve air quality. It is very quiet on the 1st 3 settings (has 5), easy to use, features a UV light, and the cost of the unit is modest compared to similar units from other brands. Down sides to it are: short cord, odors remain in the air, filters can cost up to 1/3 the price of the purifier and aren't the easiest thing to find, and it does not have a compact design makes it more heavy and less than ideal for placement on a desk or night stand.

      My son, who also has nasal allergies, told me that he purchased an air purifier and it made a big difference in his ability to sleep, and basically enjoy all 12 months of the year! So, I decided to take the plunge and get a big one that could "travel" with me from room to room ( our living room has a cathedral ceiling and is open to the dining and kitchen as well). I was skeptical at first, but have found that I don't sneeze, or have a runny nose/eyes anymore! This unit is quiet but I love the white noise for sleeping (I put the fan on its highest speed). It also has the UV light for the soon to be here cold and flu season. Excellent product!

      I bought this Air Purifier because it was well reviewed. It has a pretty good build quality and doesn't take up a ton of space. The fan has 5 speeds, and while speeds 3-5 crank up the volume, settings 1-2 aren't too bad. We have this in the baby's room. We leave it on 1 overnight, and if we feel it's necessary, we'll set it higher during the day. The only problem I have with it is the UV light. While the UV feature is nice to have, it is accompanied by a bright blue light when turned on. We don't use the UV feature very often (I think it's just for deodorizing), so it's not enough to kill the deal, but just a heads up.

      Works much better than expected

      I bought this for my wife who teaches primarily to ward off kid germs (with the UV) and to get rid of some of the smells (and perhaps mold) in the air. Before we brought it to the classroom, we tried it out at home. We live in a small apartment and when I cook, it smells up the place! This purifier on high (although loud), works! Smells are gone in less than 20 minutes after cooking and I was really surprised! This little machine does the job better than expected! I HIGHLY recommend this purifier as a cheaper alternative than some of the more expensive ones.

      The UV Light was the selling point for us

      Had it now for 5 weeks, running it almost 24/7. Use UV light only when really necessary. Have in dinning room kitchen area and does a good job on the cooking odors. Moved it to the bedroom for a few days, and we both notice the air difference. The words on the control board could be a little larger. Check the air filters out 3 weeks after and cleaned the black one, which means its doing the job. Hope it will last 5 yrs, like our Honeywell did.

      I got this for the bedroom to help with nasal congestion during the night due to pet dander , it has helped out dramatically . I have only had it for a few months so I haven't had to replace the filters but it looks simple enough. it has an option to run the filter with or with out the UV light , not really sure why? I turn this on when I get home sometimes to get rid of that dog smell in the room, if you have a dog you know what I mean. when the fan speed is up all the way to 5 it is a little loud but turn it down to 3 and its perfect for sleeping.

      Found out our 20 month old has a mild allergic reaction to our 9 yr old dog, wanted to do everything we could to prevent reaction but also not get rid of our dog,,(he's family too, and our son loves him) bought 2 of the Germ Guardian units and since our son has not had any reaction/episodes. Hoping these and other steps of course will allow us to keep our son happy and healthy along with keeping the family pet.
