    Pros Quiet even on high for an air purifier Compact design is easy to accommodate in any room Airflow can be directed to cool or only purify Integrated smartphone controls and reporting Night mode limits noise output and dims screen Measures air quality to help you find out what is affecting you Automatic mode allows it to turn on and clean air as needed Integrates with Alexa Attractive design Moves a lot of air on high Cons No listing of how big of a room is supported Slight motor whine on high Says not to carry by loop even though that is the most logical method Fan keeps saying it has updated firmware and yet app says it needs a firmware update If you suffer from allergies you are probably accustomed to having a big box in your room making a loud air sound as you sleep at night. You hope it makes a difference but aren’t quite sure since it doesn’t tell you anything. You don’t leave it on all the time because you don’t want to hear it running. Well the Dyson Pure Cool Tower, as with most Dyson products, does things a little different. To start, most air purifiers are boxes that sit on the floor. The pure cool tower looks and acts just like a tower fan, except in Dyson style. If you want to use it as a purifier you can change it to direct air to the back. Direct air to the front it becomes a purifier and fan. A nice side benefit of the purifier always being part of this combined with the unique design means air is always passed through a filter first. This should mean no more figuring out a way to clean dust off the blades on a regular tower fan. On high, the purifier is louder than a traditional tower fan with a slight motor whine sound. A night mode option does limit the speed to a max of 4 instead of 10 meaning it is silent while you sleep. To be fair, it is more appropriate to compare it to a purifier and in that case, it is far quieter. Although more subjective, the design is much more attractive than a traditional purifier so leaving it in a room doesn’t create the eyesore most do. The design also means you likely won’t feel compelled to put it up the moment allergy season is over. This is helpful because with an automatic mode the purifier measures contaminants in the room and automatically cleans the air as needed. The side effect is that the continuous on demand cleaning means dusting should be needed less since there is less in the air. It also means if you leave it out on automatic, you shouldn’t get caught when allergens change during a lazy spell and you aren’t checking allergy reports only to wake up with a stuffed nose. Another benefit of the automatic features is the filter monitor. Even if you ignore the display directly on the tower, the app will tell you when your filter life is getting low. This really helps to spoil you with less to think about. Just put it on auto and it will tell you when it needs help. Adding even more to the convenience factor is the ability to control it with Alexa. If using the remote or app are too much work, just tell Alexa to do it for you. If you are the type who wants to get more hands on it of course has a manual mode. More importantly, you can get reports on levels of different contaminants including PM 2.5, PM 10, VOC and NO2. The display on the tower allows you to display the temperature, humidity, or the contaminant level of your choice. The app can show you them all in a single glace to allow you to examine every aspect of the air quality of your room. Strangely, if you want to dig into the specific graphs of contaminants the app warns the purifier needs a firmware upgrade. No matter how many times it says firmware upgrade complete, the graphs do not show. Hopefully this is just a sign of an upcoming feature and not a bug. Overall, this shortcoming doesn’t affect the functionality unless you just must see the contaminant levels from hours ago. It is very easy to see the sensors at work. Just mow your lawn and come in and out a few times during the process. You will not only see the numbers jump on the display, you will hear the fan speed up to clear the air. Once things have settle the purifier will slow back down and turn off as needed. Regardless of if you are the hands off or hands on type of person, the Pure Cool Tower can help you keep your allergies in check. If you like Dyson products, you know and accept their products aren’t the cheapest. Typically, their higher price comes with a lot of added value and the same is true of the Pure Cool Tower. There are no major downsides. In fact, the only real gripe is if you want to move it you aren’t supposed to use the most logical built in carrying handle. Even though the loop looks like a perfect carrying handle, the instructions say not to do so or you may damage the unit. If you are the market for an air purifier and want something you can just leave out all the time to take care of things for you without fuss, then the Dyson Pure Cool Tower is a good fit. It makes taking care of allergies easier and more informative while keeping your room quiet.

    Awesome Air Purifier and a Good Fan

    The TP04 is good and fan and a great air purifier. It’s introduced a whole new level of awareness in my home about the air quality and things that affect it. It’s expensive to be sure and whether it’s worth the cost is up to you, but I’ve found nothing to fault about it in the time I’ve used it. A little background on my environment; I live in a townhouse and no one in my home suffers from allergies or anything like that. We have a dog and a fair amount of kitchen appliances on our first floor, which is a fairly open space and the place where I chose to place the fan. We’ve never really been concerned about the air quality in our home, so I was curious to see what adding the TP04 to our living room would do. Opening the box and putting the fan together was pretty simple. You get the fan, a small remote, a power adapter, and the carbon/glass filters. The only real assembly was removing the filters from their packaging and putting them on the base of the fan. I did notice that the power adapter is on the chunky side, so if you’re plugging this in to a power strip it’ll probably end up covering up the adjacent outlets. The fan stands at about 42 inches tall and the circular base is 9 inches wide. There aren’t any controls on the fan itself besides the power button. There’s a small LCD display that shows information, but all of the controls is done via the small remote or the Dyson app. After I got the fan plugged in I downloaded the app and connected the fan to my WiFi network. The setup was very straightforward and I didn’t have any issues getting connected. The Dyson Link app is easy to navigate and worked well on both iOS and Android (iPhone 7 and Pixel 2, specifically). The remote is very small and it’s easy use. I could see it potentially getting lost someday, but I like it. Turning on the fan for the first time, I was given an air quality rating of ‘Very Poor’ in the app based on what the onboard sensors in the fan read. It detects and displays PM10/2.5, VOC, NO2, temperature, and humidity in the app and the overall air quality rating takes all of these measurements into its calculation. I mainly saw high levels of PM10 when I initially turned on the fan. After leaving the fan on auto overnight my air quality rating was upgraded to ‘Good’, which is the best air quality rating the fan will show. This made me look at things in my house that could be bringing the air quality down. I replaced the vent filter in my hallway and the filters in my furnace, which were both long overdue and now have reminders to do that more regularly. Being able to see the air quality in real time also shows how things like cooking food and burning candles can bring down affect it. I can’t say that it’s really changed our behaviors all that much, but I appreciate the awareness it brings us and it generally doesn’t take very long to get the air quality back where it should be if something brings it down. As a fan the TP04 also works very well too. It puts out about as much air as a normal box fan with at about half the volume. It also oscillates nearly up to 360 degrees. At maximum fan speed you can definitely hear it, but at half speed or lower it’s not noticeable at all. I’m not sure if it has to do with the vertical slits, but the way the air comes out it doesn’t disturb anything on my coffee table, which is a nice plus. You can also control the flow of the air on the remote and in the app if it’s cold and you just want it to run as a purifier. Overall I have nothing bad to say about the TP04. It’s an excellent air purifier that gives you a ton of information about your environment and it’s also a good fan. The cost is going to be a major hurdle for most people, but if you know why you’re buying it I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

    I was skeptical about air purifiers, we don't wear shoes inside, we vacuum and dust our house weekly, so air should be pretty clean, right? But when we got this purifier I was surprised! Initially it reported indoor air quality as GOOD and was doing pretty much nothing (that is what I expected) but dinner time rolled in and my wife started searing some onions for the recipe. Dyson air purifier immediately (within a couple of minutes) detected that air quality degraded (smell of fried onion!) and came to life, started doing it's job. We used to that cooking smells typically fill up the whole house, but to my surprise Dyson purifier was able to contain the smell within kitchen-living room area and was done in about 2 hours. No cooking smells in every room anymore! It's not just the cooking smells it can remove though, it's indicators show overall air quality and levels of: 10 micron particles (like dust or pollen), 2.5 micron particles (smoke), Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC, like paint fumes), NO2 (Nitrogen Dioxide - subproduct of burning fossil fuels). I did notice that in my house I mostly have PM2.5 particles when cooking and a very slight rise of NO2 level in the mornings. Air purifier can oscillate (turn side to side) 45, 90, 180 or 350 degrees and it could blow air forward or to the back (if blowing forward makes you uncomfortably cold). Remote control is included, but purifier could be also controlled via phone app (Dyson Link) or using Amazon Alexa voice controls. Purifier has a set of 4 filters (2 fiberglass that look kinda like engine air filters and 2 carbon), I was not able to find a price of replacement filters just yet. Overall - I'm very pleased with the machine, very quiet operation (in Auto mode it's almost silent if indoor air quality is good) and no more cooking smells!

    I had been looking for a fan to help circulate the air on the second floor of my home. I suffer from allergies and asthma so the added benefit of having a fan which is also an air purifier seemed ideal. What a better solution than a Dyson TP04 Pure Cool Tower air purifier. I own other Dyson products which perform exceptionally well due to Dyson’s unsurpassed product quality and advanced tech designs so I was eager to try the Pure Cool. Upon arrival I was surprised by the size of the box but then again this is a tower fan which measures nearly 42 inches tall. Due to its size I think it’s more practical as a floor fan but I’m sure you can use it as a tabletop too. Unboxing was a breeze. Inside you find the fan, the air purifying filters, a remote control, and a manual. I removed the packaging from the air filters and installed them easily while referencing the manual. You are next instructed to plug in the unit and position the remote on the top of the fan facing down and then turn it on. The Pure Cool is a great looking fan. I just love it’s sleek futuristic blade-less design. I put it in place and check out the remote which controls a bunch of functions such as on/off, airflow speed, oscillation, airflow direction, night mode, and an information button. There is also a night mode button which dims the display and reduces the airflow speed range between setting 1-4. I love this setting since I like the background white noise of a fan running while I sleep. The higher airflow settings sure move a lot of air and doesn’t get terribly loud. The included remote controls the Pure Cool nicely but this fan/air purifier can do so much more with the Dyson Link app for your IOS or Android mobile device or tablet. The Dyson TP04 is in fact a smart home device and with the Dyson Link app you can access this functionality. Simply download the app to your device and it detects your Pure Cool and walks you through setup. You first sign up for a Dyson account and you activate your guarantee. Next you connect the Pure Cool to your WiFi network. You are now prompted to upgrade the Pure Cool firmware and then you’re up and running. Within the app you can control a ton of features. First off you can now control all the fan functions because the app also acts as a remote control. You can also setup a schedule to turn your Pure Cool on and off automatically at specified times. Very cool indeed! In the app you can also access the temperature, humidity, and an overall air quality reading. The Pure Cool not only purifies the air in your home, it also lets you know your air quality using 3 sensors which continually monitor air quality and display the results in the app This detailed air quality information shows particulate matter levels, nitrogen dioxide levels, and VOC levels. The app also tracks and graphs this info over time. Impressive stuff. You can now control your Dyson Pure Cool with either remote control or through the Dyson Link app. But wait there is an additional option. The Pure Cool can be controlled via voice commands with Alexa! Simply activate the Dyson skill in your Alexa app and link your Dyson account and now you can control a ton of features by voice. The Pure Cool really is a smart home device. I love it. The Dyson uses activated carbon filters to purify the air. I have allergies and asthma so knowing that the Dyson Pure Cool can capture 99.7% of air particles as small as .3 microns is reassuring and no doubt will prove beneficial to my homes air quality and ultimately my personal comfort. The Dyson Pure Cool is a great addition to my home. Highly recommended.

    Innovation and style with improved performance

    Once again Dyson continues to set the bar for innovation and style with it’s latest Pure Cool Tower Air Purifier fan. The details they continue to add to their products really keep me coming back. One of the biggest improvements from the previous model I owned is the option to change the airflow direction so it can still purify the air without blowing air forward. This option is great if you don’t want cold air blowing in the space but was the air cleaned, perhaps during the colder seasons. The information menu on the display as well as the Dyson app is intuitive as it will monitor the fan’s performance and access information about the pollutants in the air, temperature and humidity levels. The fan relies on glass HEPA filters and carbon filters to thoroughly filter the air. The auto mode is convenient if you have it in a living space for purifying as it will adjust the setting according to the quality of the air in that space. Night mode, which you can set to run for a set amount of time, dims the display and also makes the fan less noisy, which it’s generally pretty quiet anyways since it doesn’t rely on fan blades that chop the air. They’ve also upgraded the oscillation feature where you can tell it to what degree you want the fan to rotate. The fan was fairly simple to sync to the Dyson Link app via my smartphone and was also easy to set up the skill to sync it with other third party voice activated peripherals and can be turned off/on by asking Dyson to start/stop air purification, set speed, ask for the indoor air quality, etc.. Yes, I know, the sticker shock… that aside, there really is no comparison in the floor stand fan/purifier market and in the long run I think it’s worth every penny.

    The design of this purifier is very similar to most of the other Dyson fans and heaters that have been on the market for years. This one is a bit larger than any Dyson fan I have seen though. This unit is about 3 1/2 feet tall and 9 inches wide. So its not something that you can tuck away and not have it be noticeable. With that being said, after a few days of using it is does kind of disappear and its not as noticeable. As far as performance goes, it definitely cleans the air! We are currently finishing our basement and doing a lot of drywalling, so there is a lot of dust and stuff being created downstairs. We have the Dyson near the top of the stairs to the basement. It usually is off or runs on a low speed (we have it set on auto) but as soon as we start working down there it kicks into high gear because it is sensing the dust. It is also right near our kitchen and anytime someone is in their frying or cooking burgers or bacon or something like that it also kicks into high gear and starts cleaning the air. I have allergies, and I can definitely tell a difference since we have been using the Dyson. Normally my nose is constantly stuffy, and I don't notice that as much anymore. The app is also another cool feature of this Dyson. It gives you real-time analysis of your air quality as well as keeping a history so you can see how your air quality has been in your home. You can also control the unit from your phone and turn it on and off and change the fan speed and things like that. There is also a small display on the unit that shows a graph of the air quality as well. ...and is does have a night mode so if you use it in a bedroom it wont be shining a bright light while you are trying to sleep. It also comes with a handheld remote as well to control the fan if you don't want to use your phone, and it magnetically sits right on top of the fan which is pretty cool! I do have concerns about how long the filters will last (because they are quite pricey to replace) We have been using the purifier for about 3 weeks now and it says the filter life is at 97%. Which would roughly mean you should have to change them every 3-4 months. But I guess time will tell if that is true or not. One other small complaint I have is the sound level when it kicks into high gear. Its a bit loud at the highest setting. When you have it on auto mode you cant control the fan setting, so that can be a bit annoying when it kicks into high gear for an hour or two. I would like it if there was a setting so you could have it on auto, but also select a maximum fan speed within the auto setting. That way you could still leave it on auto, but only have the fan at maximum of like a 6 or 7 out of 10. Other than that small gripe, I am very happy with this purifier. I hope to have it in our home for may years to come!

    Great fan/purifier..let me count the ways

    Love this fan/purifier by Dyson. It oscillates 350 degrees or without if you desire. It has a start/stop button, a remote control and a Dyson app for control from anywhere and explains more in detail about what it actually does. It also is compatible with Alexa so that in the middle of the night I can adjust it to whatever setting I require, on/off, ask what the room air quality is, the humidity in the room, the temperature in the room and much more and all without even lifting your head off your pillow. The app even tells you what the air quality is outside, the humidity and pollutants after you enter your location into the app. The set up was very simple. The filter does seem a bit pricey, but when you consider all that this does and how much it filters it is well worth it and only needed maybe twice a year at the most (unless you use it 24/7 and depending on how much filtration is actually needed). The app even tells you how much life is left in the filter and when to change it. I put this in the master bedroom and found the air quality poor, but within no time it was up to good. I gave up smoking cigarettes and now vape. I vaped in the room and the level of air quality went right back down to poor again, but within minutes of stopping it was cleared up. After vaping and seeing the results, it might even help me to stop smoking completely. All I could think of is this going into my lungs. A real reality check. I cooked a steak in the kitchen and browned it a little too much and again the air quality went down even with that door closed, but after a little time, it went back up to good air quality. I do have another well-known brand purifier and it doesn’t even compare to this. All I could do is hope that it was working, without any proof of it actually doing anything at all. I am amazed at how much air it throws out and it has fan settings from 1 – 10. I did have concerns of the air quality where I was sleeping and will run it in there for awhile to see how the pattern is for a week. The app also has a scale to show you the pattern of the air quality for a period of time. This is very capable of doing a much bigger space and I will eventually find the ideal permanent place for it.

    While both my wife and I suffer from allergies, my wife generally has a tougher time. This purifier will definitely help, it has already made an improvement in the air quality of our bedroom. The companion app is a great tool for not only monitoring the current air quality, but you can easily see what has been corrected by looking at the statistics from previous days. The added ability to create a constant stream of purified air is a major plus. At it's highest speed, it pushed a very large amount of air, but really the only noise that you hear is from the movement of the air itself. The noise the purifier makes itself is very minimal. And, if you're concerned with the noise produced, scheduling the purifier to change to a night mode (which limits its speed) keeps it whisper quiet, even when oscillating. Speaking of scheduling, which can all be controlled through the app, or included remote, setting the purifier to "Auto" removes the guess work out of when to run. This is a very easy to use purifier. My only concern is the potential maintenance cost of replacing the filters, though the seem like they'll last for a while. If you're in the market for an air purifier, you can't go wrong with this one. Pros: Very efficient at purifying and maintaining air quality Very quiet. Oscillation, powerful air movement, easy scheduling through app, digital assistant compatible Cons: Potential maintenance cost of replacement filters

    Stylish Air Purifier with Good Results

    I have been considering buying an air purifier for awhile, but have been hesitant on picking a manufacturer given all the varying reviews. I have small white dust accumulation in my apartment, probably due to my air conditioning ducts not being cleaned, and a slightly musty air quality. The Dyson TP04 was fairly simple to assemble, although the metal grills, which house the filters were initially difficult to assemble in a manner in which both snapped in to place. This initially led to the TP04 failing to fully rotate, I believe, during operation. After a couple reassemble attempts I got both the metal grills to snap in to place simultaneously. Operation of the TP04 was simple via the supplied remote. I run the TP04 continuously on a medium/low setting for continuous air purification and air circulation. As a result, I have noticed a significant decrease in white dust accumulation in my bedroom along with a complete lack of musty odor. In addition, I no longer seem to wake up with a “stuffed up” nose. Functionally, the TP04 is very informative. Using the remote you can cycle through various informational displays on the unit, to monitor various air quality settings. You can also use the remote to adjust degrees of rotation, fan speed, choosing “auto” operation, filter life status, etc. Overall, the TP04 is a very stylish and effective air purifier. The TP04 is perfect for a bedroom given its square foot rating and quite operation. Perhaps a little better fit, construction wise, on the metal grills, but overall the build quality is good.

    Floss Before Oscillating

    The Dyson TP04 Air Purifier is an impressive column, and yet blends in fairly well into its environment. It is approximately 41” high with a base of about 8” circumference. It comes almost completely assembled, except for the filters and covers. The design of these is clever in that the two sets are not only interchangeable, but can be installed either direction up - there is no way to mess it up. It does take a little bit to get the covers snapped on, but it was clear when they were properly inserted. The unit comes with a small remote that would be very easy to lose if Dyson hadn’t designed it to affix to the top of the unit via magnets. Once you connect it to your WiFi, and download the app, you will probably not be reaching for that remote too often. Especially if you also enable the Alexa skill to control your unit. I have place my unit in Automatic mode, allowing it to control the speed and duration of the device itself. There is a graph in the app that shows the environmental conditions for the past several hours, and a weekly roll up of the daily conditions. You can see how the unit came on when the air quality declined, and turned off when it improved. There is also a virtual remote in the app you can use. Now for the explanation of the strange title. When I first set the device up, I tried all the buttons on the remote. The one that makes the unit oscillate only made it go a short distance one direction, then pause and click, until an error on the display screen of the device showed an error. Nothing in the manual, so I called support. Although it took several minutes (10 maybe?), I finally got to talk with a wonderful lady who helped me. She ran through the list of troubleshooting steps, all which where obvious and had already been done (power off/on, check for obstruction or tape the needs to be removed), until she mention that a coworker had mentioned a possible fix. I was to run a length of dental floss around the gap between the base and the rotating top. As she put me on hold to get one of the devices to look at, I tried the floss trick, and after a couple of good back and forth, it would go part way, then stop. After doing this a couple of more times, it now goes back and for the flawlessly. This should be in the faq’s, as well as the manual.

    More than an air purifier

    So I received this "purifier" at no cost in exchange for an honest review and I must admit, I got more than I was expecting. As is common with Dyson products, you expect top quality build, performance, design, and functionality. When I received it and started assembling it, it seemed to be just a very sleek looking blade-less purifier. Upon turning it on however, I realized that the features this purifier has takes your home into a new generation. Why? Well this purifier is not only blade-less, it is also smart, and can be used with an included remote, or your smartphone through the Dyson Link app. Besides providing HEPA and carbon filtration, this purifier actively monitors your air quality! On the unit itself, it has a line that tells you how good your quality is as it runs. The part I like most is actually the app. It is very intuitive and informative. With it you may control the purifier, set a schedule for it, and monitor the air quality of the room it's in. It also measures indoor temperature, humidity, and particulate matter of different micron sizes. It can detect nitrogen dioxide and other oxidizing gases that are typical in vehicle emissions, cooking, or just burning gas. Also harmful odors like in strong cleaning products, paints, etc. All these will determine your air quality. The nice thing is it will also give you the remaining filter life so you know when it's time to change it. It has 10 fan speeds, and when you get to 9-10 it's a bit on the loud side, but I could say that it's to be expected. To get a good wind flow I feel I had to put the speed to about 5 or 6, as anything less than that was just a slight breeze. The fan does oscillate, so it's nice because it will get the whole room and you can do different coverage angles from 45 degrees all the way to 350 degrees depending on how much you want it to oscillate. There is a night mode that will run quieter (speeds 1-4) for a period of time before shutting down, though if you have it on a schedule then it doesn't matter. Even knowing the quality Dyson produces, I am very impressed and happy with this product. I know these are "costlier" than other units but what you are getting is much more than a purifier all in one. Highly recommended!

    Nice Fan/purifier

    This Dyson Pure cool is a good fan. For the size it blows a good deal of air. To find something with more airflow it will be bigger, louder, and probably not have a filter. The fan is easy to assemble. Just snap in the charcoal and glass HEPA filters and you’re ready to go. The included remote affixes to the top of the fan loop by magnets in the devices. Overall, the fan is lightweight and easy to carry, just don’t move it by using the fan top as a handle. Operation is pretty simple, the remote handles all features. Oscillation settings are 45, 90, 180, and 350 degrees. A small LCD screen on the front of the unit lets you what setting you are making, and current air quality. There is a night mode which limits the output to keep the fan quiet and dims the LCD. So, you can sleep at night with no noise or bright lights. You can also make a delayed shutoff. The fan output direction can also be changed, the reversed direction was quieter to me. The auto mode lets the fan decide how much it should operate. The LCD screen will show you current operational status, air quality, filter status, temperature, Particle matter removed and the like. One of the best things I found is to use it with the Dyson App. It connects to your home Wi-Fi network and all of the functions, features, and information of the device are available. You can even set a schedule for on and off through out the week. When you use the app, it will automatically register the fan too. The unit worked fine and all functions and information came up with no problems on the fan and through the app. This unit does not have washable filters. When the glass and charcoal filters are done, you’ll have to buy new ones. The filters are not up on the Dyson site, and when I called about them, Dyson had no information on cost. I was told they expected the filters to last a long time under normal use, years. So, there is an ongoing cost to using the fan, but right now, that cost is unknown. Like most Dyson products, it costs more, but it’s worth it.

    Decided to pull the trigger on this newly updated Dyson air purifier. I live in a busy intersection with tons of buses & Car traffic, So i get a lot of carbon / Brake dust build up in the air & on my furniture. We have the unit in our Living room / Kitchen. I dont know if its placebo effect or not But i do seem to notice a difference in air quality since i bought this. It just feels easier to breathe. I Do Vape indoors, which is partly why i bought this, When i take one draw the machine knows and turns on automatically & cleans it all up, its that sensitive. As a test, I made Bacon this morning (All windows closed). I was surprised by how bad my air quality got when I started cooking, which makes sense. Around 25 mins the Bacon smell was completely gone. Overall Summary Pro's: • Its a Smart home Air purifier with voice control & App software. • 100% Sealed Hepa Filter design I've seen so far. • Uses Carbon Filters. • Looks modern, Unique Design, Fits well with my place, Looks good as a appliance. • Build quality is good, does not feel like a cheap product. • Small foot print / Lightweight, This unit does not take up much room. • Filters everything I throw at it, Vape, 420 Smoke , Carbon emissions, Pollen, chemicals. • Compared to other Air purifiers, The replacement cost filter it not so costly ($70), compared to other brands that range over $100 in replacements & sometimes involving multiple filter replacements. • The updated screen display Is a must, Its pretty cool to actually see what the unit is filtering and the micron levels. • Less dusting on furniture Con's • So far I don't really have anything bad to say about this purifier. • Maybe entry Price? It certainly is not the cheapest air purifier out their. But for the engineering and design features, It didn't feel like i blew my money on something useless. • For someone that is looking to wash / reuse the filters this does not work.

    This is my first Air Purifier and its great. In the box you of course get the Dyson TP04, and it comes with a nice remote as well that magnetically stores on top when not in use so you dont lose it. I wish all my electronics with remotes had this. Assembly and set up were a cinch. Install the filters, the covers, locate where you want it and plug it in. Then turn it on and it automatically starts scanning the air in your house and you see the air quality on the display. Select auto and it will auto clean the air as needed. It also has some pretty cool features. I like that it oscillates, and you can adjust how much it does as well. There are 10 different fan speeds. And on cold days if you dont want it blowing on you you can switch it to diffused mode. It will still work, but wont blow cold air at you. If you like controlling things with your phone there is also an app that allows you to monitor and control your fan directly from your phone. I know I like constant sounds, like a sound machine or fan running while Im sleeping. But for those that like it quiet it also has a night feature that dims the lights and runs quieter. You can also set the time you want the quiet feature to run for. As far as maintenance goes you basically just replace the filters when it tells you need replacing. And its as simple to replace them as it was to install them. Not sure how much these cost though. Like I said this is my first air purifier, and for a long time it never even crossed my mind that I need one. But now that I have one Im glad I do. Im hoping it those in the house with allergies. Its going to be nice to not spend so much on expensive allergy relief medicines!!

    I have to admit that I was looking forward to this Dyson TP04 Pure Cool air purifier. I have a high sensibility to airborne pollen, mold and dust particles. I’ve used a few air purifiers before, but they did not achieve the results I desired. I own other Dyson products, and am very happy with them, so I had high expectations for this product. I assembled the item in just a few short minutes, then downloaded the Dyson app for my Android phone. The fan paired easily with my phone, so I was up and running in very little time. Straight away, the app informed me that my current atmosphere was ‘Good’. The app further provided me with the ambient room temperature, indoor humidity and the amount of particle matter it detected. The app will also provide the same information for outdoors. Actually, the amount of information this system detects is quite impressive. It detects: Smoke, bacteria, allergens, dust, mold spores, pollen, Nitrogen Dioxide and something they refer to as, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC). VOCs include harmful odors like cleaning products, paint, etc. I held off on writing this review because I really wanted to put this device through its paces. I keep the unit set on Auto Mode, and whenever the environment changes (opening doors or windows, cooking or cleaning), the purifier promptly ramps up the fan to clear the air. Another cool feature is the ability to change the airflow direction of the fan. This is nice when I don’t want the cool air blowing in my direction. The unit continues to purify the air, regardless of the airflow direction. The high price point is well earned here. With my susceptibility to airborne allergens, the Dyson TP04 Pure Cool air purifier is a must have. Highly recommended.

    This Dyson looks really cool almost like a work of art, and has some pretty amazing features. It features a plastic design and the filter area is metal. Like most Dyson products it's really easy to setup out of the box and I had no problem syncing this to my phone and wifi. It has a remote but also an app that you can download and use to operate the fan as well as track your air quality. That's pretty cool. Can't find the little remote because your kiddo threw it under the couch or ate it? Use your phone. The front of the fan displays clearly what the fan is doing and when you change settings it shows up. The app has a few more settings and displays and allows you to track your air quality to see how well the fan is working and how good/bad your air quality is. The TP04 has an auto setting that ramps up the fan when the air quality drops to low levels, in turn cleaning the air faster. This fan is way more quiet than your conventional box fan. So if you're looking for something to just "make alot of noise so I can sleep better" like my wife, just buy a cheap fan and save money. The purifier/fan seems to work well. After a few days of using the purifier the air in my house did feel like it smelled and felt cleaner. Would I recommend this to a friend? This brings us to the final point and only reason I took a star off my review, price. It's expensive. As always, when you buy Dyson you are paying for technology and a high quality products with support. This is much more than a fan and although I have never owned a really nice air purifier, this one seems top notch with all the settings and user interface in the app.

    The Dyson pure cool Air Purifier has been such a blessing in my home. I have horrible allergies that has plagued me over the last 20+ years. I also have 2 cats and a dog that shed like crazy. Before I got the dyson I would wake up in the middle of the night so stuffy that I could barely breathe and could never fall back a sleep. So after reading some of the reviews from people that where similar to me I decided to bite the bullet and buy it. I can honestly say it has worked like a charm. I’ve been sleeping better, not waking up in the middle of the night, and as an added bonus the fan has a great cooling effect which is wonderful when you live in Miami and other tropical climates. It actually is much cooler than the regular oscillating fans you see so much of today. The design is nice and sleek with a variety of colors you can choose from that fits best for whatever room you decide to put it in. According to the manual you get the best results in a room around 400 sq. Ft. Mine is primarily kept in the master bedroom but it’s easy to move it if you want, it’s not heavy. The only issue someone might have with the dyson air purifier is that it’s on the higher end spectrum regarding costs. But you get what you pay for and I believe Dyson has the best air purifiers on the market. So if you’re like me tired of waking up where you can’t breathe and your allergies are bothering you then pick one of these and thank me later.

    Recommend if you live in an environment with poor air quality (due to pollution, smoking, vaping, pets, cooking, dust, allergies, etc.) and would like a cooling fan + purifier combo. I would also look into their heater and cooling fan + purifier combo so you can use it year round if you live in cold weather areas. Pros: -Live air quality reports on color LCD screen - shows which particles and gases are in the room right now -2 filters inside purifier - HEPA filter and Active carbon filter -350 degree oscillation (4 settings - 45, 90, 180, 350 degrees) -Dyson Link app support on smartphones (Android and Apple) - read air quality reports, turn on/off remotely, set programmable schedule -Comes with tiny remote -Amazon Alexa voice support -Multiple colors available -Smaller version with similar features available -Backward air flow mode for times when you want fan and purifier but not cool air (like in the winter) -Bladeless like other Dyson fans, great if you have kids or pets around -Night time quiet mode - dims display and uses quiet settings -10 fan speeds -Easy to move and set up -Comes on automatically if air quality is not good Cons: -Filters are expensive. Approximately $80 for replacement. According to Dyson, a filter should last for a year if you run it 12 hours a day. Filters are not washable or reusable -Significant upfront investment. Though it is a Dyson -No easy to grip handle

    Overall a good fan.

    I purchased this fan from my local Best Buy recently. Prior to my purchase I reviewed the details on the fan to see if it would be a good fit for me. Once I decided that I wanted it I went through with the purchase. I will start by saying it’s a little on the expensive side. Compared to most other fans the price tag far exceeds it’s competitors. However, you have to take into consideration that it’s an air purifier and has WiFi capabilities for remote use. The fan has 10 air speed settings, which is great for variable preferences. I personally wish that it had a higher fan speed at it’s top setting for more air flow. As mentioned earlier, it has WiFi capabilities which are awesome if you are technologically savvy. You have to download the Dyson app on your phone and connect the fan to your home WiFi. Once this is done, you can control the fan from your app, track your air quality, set schedules, see the room temperature, and much more. The feature I like most is that I was able to connect my Dyson Fan to Alexa and control it by voice. While there are a few cons to the fan overall I am very pleased with my purchase. I use it regularly and it works well. I would definitely recommend to anyone in the market for a fan that wants more than the basic fan provides.

    Great air purifier, lack luster fan

    I bought this fan to assist my window ac with cooling off my apartment’s living room and bedroom. The bedroom has French doors, so when open both the bedroom and living room become one big room(about 300 square feet. I was sold on it being two appliances in one and thought a fan that cleaned the air was a smart investment for the price. I was disappointed when I got home and set it to the highest speed of 10. At its highest speed the fan produces a gentle breeze, felt like my window fan on a lower setting. And the breeze it produces doesn’t reach very far. At one point I put it near the base of my bed and I could barely feel it. I will say even though the fan doesn’t feel strong it does circulate the air well. At least according to the app. When I first started it up it said my air quality was very poor with pollen. In about 45 mins it brought it down to good air quality. Bottom line of you want a air purifier this seems to be a great investment, if you want a tower fan to circulate air just got by a tower fan for a fraction of the price. It’s unfortunate Dyson didn’t give this air purifier the strength of their normal tower fan, if they did then it would be the perfect fan

      Hi there, this is Krystal with Dyson. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on the Dyson TP04 Pure Cool Tower purifier. The cool feature of the purifier is a fan. It is not designed to change the temperature of the room like you would get from an AC unit. Rather, this machine is designed to cool a person by moving the air over and around them.

      We would value the opportunity to address your questions or concerns in more detail. Feel free to contact us at askdysonUS@dyson.com and we will be happy to help.

      Best Wishes,
