    GermGuardian - 3-in-1 Tabletop UV-C 78 Sq. Ft. Air Purifier - totally worked great from the start. I was having trouble breathing and this product made it so much better for me. I also sleep better with the cleaner air. It is perfect for hot summer days, as it blows out cold air. In reverse I don't like the fact that this is not winter time friendly. I wish it blew out warmer air, in the winter. But overall I am very happy with it. The price was a great value, compared to the ones over $200.00, and it has the germ guard built in.

    I wasn't sure what to expect, I never owned an air purifier before. I bought 2 of these, and noticed a difference instantly. I run them mostly at night, per instruction recommendations. It helped my son sleep well threw the night ( he has asthma) And for me, I kept waking up w a sore throat, due to the weather I figured, but no problems since purchase. This one also features a UV and odor filter, that's nice for my sons room, can get kinda stinky w cleats and stinky boy sweat. Fits perfect on any dresser or nightstand. I would've gave a five star but it really needs a timer feature.

    Ordered this based on high reviews. Works well for a medium sized bedroom. Room was noticeably less dusty after 2 days of running continuously. It was very easy to set up out of box. There was a plastic type smell for the first 24 hours however. On its lowest setting, the noise is still a bit on the loud side compared to another air purifier i have in another bedroom. Not a problem if you prefer white noise while sleeping, maybe even a good thing for babies to sleep better. Happy with my purchase thus far. The fact that the filter replacements do not cost too much is a plus.

    I got this because I needed to bring my outside dogs in the house at night while I was out of town for a few days and I am allergic to pet dander. I set it on high for the time I was gone and when I returned you couldn't even tell that we had the dogs in the house. It was wonderful to come home to a fresh smelling house. I have used it for about a month now and it still works well but it is a little noisy even on low, but other than that it is great.

    Nice Office Air Purifier

    I bought this air purifier to put in my office at work. I work at a manufacturing plant so there is a lot of dust produced in our environment. I have had sinus infections and coughing last year, so in hopes of breathing cleaner air during the day I purchased this purifier. It looks nice and fits nicely in my office as well. It is a little loud so I only use the lowest setting, but I have come to enjoy the "white noise" it offers while it is on.

    I bught this because my son has asma and was having serious cuffing issues indores so now i just connect this in the room he is. It has helped alot. My only complaint is that it makes some noise, not to bas and it is cold neer the product. Ita not an air conditioner but it doese produce cool air. I bught this during winter. I might like that feature in summer.

    Reduced my sneezing

    I've never owned an air purifier before so I can't compare but this small, unassuming unit seems to have reduced my sneezing at night and I don't feel as stuffy in the morning. I have a small bedroom, hence I bought the smallest unit. It is rather noisy. If you like white noise as you sleep, you're in luck. If you like quiet, do not buy this. Overall, I'm pleased so far. I've had it only a month.

    We bought literally the last of these during the Ventura fires. We put it a room much larger than 200 sq feet and still we could tell a difference. It is a bit loud on the highest setting, but if you are sleeping itcan act as white noise so it isn’t that bad. If awake, put it in the other side of the room. Either way, in a pinch, this worked out well. Recommended if you have no other options. If you have a large room, this may not work out.

    I work in small office where the windows don't open and the doors almost always closed so it gets pretty stuffy, I ran this on low all day and the air already seemed "lighter", it didn't do much for the musty smell but it did remove the smell from my cleaning products and meals throughout the day. The lowest level isn't too loud but the other ones are a bit loud while I'm working.

    Air Purifier

    This purifier works better than I originally anticipated. I purchased 2 for my ~1500 sq ft home. It worked so well, I only kept one and gave the second to my girlfriend. It cleans dust and smells (cat litter). It works well. The only reason I gave it 4, instead of 5 stars, is because it is louder than expected. I have central air conditioning, but it reminds me of the sound (volume) of window air unit.

    I bought 2 of these because I have really bad allergies. I bought it in spring and now having used it for an entire spring-summer season here in Washington, I can say it's performed great. I have one by my bed and one in my office, the 2 places I spend the most time at home. It's done a fantastic job keeping the air clean and it's been so nice breathing like a normal person during our beautiful seasons.

    I purchased this air purifier during the recent Northern California fires. I was getting sick due to all the smoke, but once I purchased the purifier my room air felt clean. I could breathe better and sleep great. I now leave it on at nighttime while I sleeping. The noise is kind of loud but you get use to it.

    Kid used to wake up with runny nose. Bought this air purifier and haven't had any morning runny noses since. The fan is noticeably loud. I don't put it on high because it sounds like a jet engine, but the first two settings are okay. My kid is comforted by the white noise it creates so overall it is a win.

    Great Results For Small Purifier

    I was skeptical when I 1st purchased this Purifier... but I was surprised. Works great for a little Purifier, it's perfect for my small apartment. It's a little noisy but by now I've gotten used to it. It's not a bad loud noise, it's like a fan type of noise. I do like the Purifier overall & it does what it says it's supposed to do! :)

    Cost effective, modern form factor

    This is really cost effective as a basic air purifier. It also uses a UV-C light which is safer than ionizers which create harmful ozone. It is not a true HEPA filter, but "HEPA-like". Keep this in mind. Good for catching pollen and dust, but not everything. Also it runs a bit noisy, so it's not something to leave on at night.

    This is a great little purifier. I only gave it 4 stars because I have to take the back cover off every couple of days and clean it, but the purifier works well. There is a dog in this room. This is why we bought the purifier to keep the pet dander down.

    It can be a little to noisy if the setting is set up to high but on the lowest setting is very quiet. If you set it up away from you like in a corner of your house or a hallway you won't notice no matter how high you put the setting to. Other then that it does truly deodorize and freshens up a living in under a hour.

    Bought this to deal with second hand smoke and it works quite well except the noise gets louder as the level you choose gets higher. Noticed that it cools down the room after a while but also blows out air more to the left side than the whole vent.

    This air purifier is exactly what I needed. I bought it to take with us on a trip (hotel smell) thinking I could use it later in my office. It worked so well I have kept it in my bedroom at home. Definitely worth the money.

    I bought this for my bedroom to help cut down on dust and dog hair. Works well. It does produce noise but I didn't have any problems with that personally- kind of used to the white noise now. Helped cut down on dusting. Only complaint is it dries the air a bit but otherwise happy with the purchase.
