    Good if your hearing is not

    I bought this when I had to bring my dogs into the house while I was on a vacation. I didn't want my house to smell like dog when I got home and I am allergic to pet dander. I set the Germgaurian on high with a new filter while I was gone and it worked perfectly. The house smelled good when I got home and I wasn't having an allergy attack, which was great. While I was home I wanted to keep it on to keep the house smelling fresh, but it works best on high, and that is just way to loud. I have also found that you have to change the filter a lot more often than I expected about every two months.

    Would be good for just allergens in a small room

    I bought this to put in a 2-story common stairwell because my neighbors smoke and the smell in the stairwell was unbearable and beginning to seep into my apartment. It's a little bit noisy but nothing more than a strong "white noise" type sound. It does take care of the allergens/odors enough to keep them out of my apartment but not enough to clear the stairwell because they smoke a lot.

    This item was boxed nicely. It had more than one setting. You could do more than just run the air through a charcoal filter. It is quite small so it is only suitable for a small space. I didn't do any research on this particular brand prior to purchase. It came with a warranty and was easy to set up. The jury is still out on its effectiveness. I purchased it as a gift for someone.

    Not true hepa

    This is not a true hepa air filter. I didn’t realize that when I read the description. I have allergies to mites and have trouble with asthma when sleeping. This didn’t help enough. I’m giving it three stars because they never claimed it was true hepa. I didn’t know that hepa is not enough for me.

    I bought this for my bedroom. It is a lot louder than the larger Insignia purifier in another room, and I couldn't tell that it was helping the air quality much. I returned it and bought another Insignia.

    My husband brought two purifiers home while I was recovering from severe respiratory problems from our wildfires. I opted for the one that has a permanent filter. I'm sure this is a good one but I know I'm not good at keeping up with changing filters.

    Bought this to help making the cleanup of a hoarders' nest tolerable along with snuffing out allergies and such. Know its working because I see "stuff" in the charcoal filter but haven't noticed a change in small as some have.

    Love the size and idea of this air purifier. We have the larger Germ Guardian in the living room and it really works great. Bought these for the kids rooms but we can't really tell much of a difference. Allergies have not improved much.

    Helps with dust

    Helps with dust build up in average condo size living room or bedroom. Maybe a little help with dog hair but my dog sheds a lot. It is pretty loud though but you get used to it, like white noise.

    This is a Bookshelf size of the big Brother with the same features (HEPA + UV). The size is perfect for some rooms but it's too noisy for me.

    This is ideal for a small room. I would use it more in summer just cause it blows air like a small fan. Not sure how effective it is, but not great for smoke.

    Based on all the weeds outside, this seems to be keeping the allergens inside down to a minimum. It does make a noticable noise.

    The first thing I noticed when I plugged in this project was the noise it created. It was a bit loud but works good

    This product only works in small spaces. Go for a bigger one if possible.

    I purchased this unit for my office. It's pretty loud and the air comes out of it sideways.
