    IT REALLY WORKS!!!!!

    I bought this air purifier because I was in a pretty screwed up situation. I recently purchased a condo and my very considerate(sarcasm) neighbors below me smoke relentlessly. My fiancee and I do not smoke and we both hated the fact our condo started to get filled with the smell of smoke. You know that scent you smell when you go into a hotel room where the smell is just permitted into everything? Anyways, the bottom line is we were against the wall. We couldn't open our windows nor slider door. It was disheartening to be in this position. We decided to purchase an air purifier. We figured it wouldn't completely get rid of the problem but at least it would be something. We read a couple of reviews on different purifiers. The Honeywell brand kept popping up with good reviews. We drove to Best Buy and saw that the genius 3 was available. I ended up buying it. We used it immediately........ Let me tell you something, this thing works like magic!!!! I mean is this thing good or what!!! We first used it overnight in our bedroom and it completely got rid if the smoke scent. The air scent was clean and it got rid of it completely. We were so excited it has actually worked. We initially believed that it would only help a little, but boy were we wrong. We next tried it in the living room over night and it worked the same. I think I've painted a clear enough picture here, the Honewell genius 3 air purifier works. I completely recommend this 10000000%. You won't be disappointed.

    Better than the Airgenius 5?

    We've had the Airgenius 5 for a couple of years. Eventually enough dust gets past the filter and into the device itself (motors, etc) that it started to make an annoying rattle it's hard to sleep near. For $200+, a bit disappointing that it couldn't be cleaned out. Because I expect this Airgenius 3 will similarly last only 2-3 years, as the mechanism appears identical, I'm rating a 4 star. However, these air cleaners work well, are easy to clean, and require no replacement filters. Went with the 3 vs 5 this time. Appears to be an identical design in terms of the stuff that cleans the air. If you can live with white instead of black, the 3 may be the better deal. The 5 adds extra accent lighting and a couple of extra speeds you probably won't use … and a touch screen that's got so many lights on it, we needed to place a magazine on the panel at night (no night-mode to turn off only the lights). The 3 has a simplified control panel and few lights; no magazine cover needed.

    My mom just had lung transplant surgery, so I brought this item for her. I figured it would help her to breath the air inside the house. So far it works great, also she is enjoying this item a whole lot. It cleans the air perfectly for her, so I want to buy 1 or 2 more, an extra one for her and I really want one for myself. Also its really simple to use.

    I've used other air purifiers and this one seems to work the best. Even on its highest fan speed it is quiet. It also moves a lot of air to help curculate clean air between rooms.

    The unit had an incredibly strong odor of plastic

    Immediately after plugging the unit in, the air coming out of it had an intense plastic oder. This persisted even after three days of continuous use. I decided that the plastic smell was more offensive than the stuff it was supposed to filter from the air, and I returned the unit.

    Didn't Last a Year

    The first few months it was a dream and felt like something I could never live without. By the time it was due for it's first filter cleaning (which was a great option) the machine had pretty much started to fail. I cleaned and replaced the odor filters hoping that would solve the problem. It didnt. It started rattling louder and louder to now the thing is just a giant noise machine and I dont know if it's working or not. The white gets stained with this yellow tint no matter what and there is no way to get it off. And the topping on the sunday was when the (high) indicator led faded away until it was completly gone. Best Buy was supposed to price match it for me and they didn't so it was a little more than I wanted to pay but I wanted my elite points and that was upsetting to find out and now I'm stuck with this two hundred dollar purchase that is turned out to be far from what was claimed.

    I've had the air purifier on for the last 4 days and put it on sleep mode in the evenings. We bought this originally to clean the air from cooking because our kitchen opens right up into our dining and livingroom area on the main level. I have definitely noticed a big difference since buying this. The house smells fresh and I don't use sprays or candles in the house. When you first turn it on, there is a plastic like smell from the machine but it does go away after the first day of use. There are 3 settings: sleep mode, 2 regular, and 3 high use. On setting #2, you do hear it running because air is blowing out the front of the fan but it is relatively quiet. You probably don't want this in a really small room because the air that's blowing out of the fan is pretty much like turning a fan on.

    This is my 6th Honeywell air purifier I've bought over the years. I've always been happy with Honeywell purifiers and this one has not disappointed. I got this purifier this past Sunday at best Buy on sale, which makes it quite a bargain. It cleans the air very good and is very quiet even on the highest speed. I've had other Honeywell models over years that were much louder. It comes with 2 pre-filters...one washable, the other you have to replace. The replaceable pre-filter has special odor cleaning properties and I used it to make sure I got the smells and cigarette smoke out of the air. It has to be replaced about every 3 months. I put the washable filter up for safe keeping till I need it. I didn't notice the plastic smell many have reported, but maybe it's just my nose, I dunno. I had a slightly smaller 170 sq. ft. Honeywell purifier in my livingroom that I moved to my bedroom, and replaced it in my livingroom with this one. This one cleans a slightly larger area of 225 sq. ft. which is better in my livingroom. I use this larger purifier and the other purifier in my bedroom on the 2nd speed and they do a good job all through the apt. They both are energy star rated and use little electricity which is another plus. Both have permanate washable filters that only have to be rinsed every other month or so. I have not ever had any of the noise, rattling problems, or failed rotating motor others have reported.....but I never use the oscillation feature in any of my purifiers. I see no need for that. If I need to circulate the air in my room I use the ceiling fan. And the apt. air conditioner fan, and the furnace fan, also does that. All in all I love this product and think it a good bargain at Best buy on sale. I certainly am a believer in Honeywell purifiers and think they make a great product. I have 3 Honeywell purifiers right...a small one put up.... and none of their products have failed me. I give this purifier a hearty thumbs up.
