    Helps you to sleep better

    I don't even really get allergies that bad but when I started using this after a few days it really helped me to sleep better. I use to always wake up during the night but after this I always slept straight through the night. It's hard to believe that an air purifier would make such a big difference but it really does. And it's plenty quiet for me. You can barely hear it on it's lowest setting and even on it's highest setting I can sleep perfectly fine. If you're used to the sound of a fan running in your bedroom already then this thing will sound like nothing. Only thing is that once I started sleeping with the window open at night I started getting allergies again. So yes, it does work, but if you like to sleep with the windows open, I'm not so sure it'll make a difference at that point. I've also seemed to get sick less since using it and my room smells better and cleaner than it did before. I'd say it's a great deal for what ya get out of it.

    Awesome Air Purifier for the Price

    My husband and I both have severe allergies, so we need to have air purifiers running as often as possible. We've had this one for about 6 week now, and it's awesome! It has a quick clean function where you can run it on a high speed for several hours and then clean the filter and it gets a ton of stuff out of the air. For every day we run it on the whisper setting, and we find ourselves needing to check to see if it's even on! It is really that quiet! We keep this one near where our dog sleeps and we are amazed by how well it works. We also just love that we can vacuum out the filter every few days! We would both highly recommend it!

    Cleans the air

    I recently moved, and had to move my cat's litterbox into my bathroom. The whole bathroom would stink every time she used it, and have a cloud of litter dust covering everything. (Note: I do clean the litterbox daily, she just has stinky poo. Vet says it's ok.) I purchased this, and leave it running on the low setting at all times. It's helped with the litter dust, and keeps the smell at bay (sometimes I turn it up to medium, just in case, if company is coming over). Would recommend it to anyone who has an indoor litter box odor problem. (Just remember to clean the litterbox daily.)

    I was browsing for an air purifier and found this one to be priced very well and it comes with a permanent filter which is also another plus.I checked out other ones before making my final choice and this one came on top! Helps me with my severe allergies and asthma and I keep it on the highest setting (not very loud, just got used to it) and it works wonders, in a few minutes my nonstop coughing and runny eyes and nose subsided. It's a great size and doesn't take up much space, once the filter gets dirty you just vacuum it and I use a wipe to also clean off any extra gunk off. Happy with my purchase.

    This air purifier works very quiet at lowest speed. There are 3 speed settings. Cleans the air abd makes the room smell fresh. I also like it because it does not have that ionzer which have been researched to cause health issues/even cancer. I used to have air ioners decades ago and they made my lungs hurt after breathing the ionized air overnight. The ionizers make some things/molecules stick to your lungs like they become magnetized.

    I want to start off by saying I thought I was going crazy. I was ONLY having allergy symptoms from inside my home. When I opened the windows or went outside I was fine. I replaced the air filters in my home and that didn't resolve my issue. I am not sure if it was the air qualify, pollen, or some type of irritant inside my home, but within an hour of using this, my running nose, watery eyes, and congestion all went away... no drugs needed. This was a great purchase.

    I bought one for my living room and another for my bedroom since these were so small and inexpensive. I pretty much let them run 24/7 and paid for the 2 year extended Best Buy warranty in case the motors die during that time. There's a huge tree next to my apt and a very noticeable layer of dust on anything close to my 2 windows. These seem to be helping control the amount of dust and probably the amount of stuff going into our lungs. They also come with a reusable filter that you just need to vacuum so it's a great deal!

    I'm very sensitive to dust. I can actually smell it in the air and I have to say I am breathing easier. Now, with the fires in Napa, I am so glad we have this little air purifier. I have been carrying it from room to room and I am seeing the ash build up from the air inside the house! We also have a central air filtration, but we need this too and it is doing its job 24/7. These are kind of extreme conditions, but what a test for this little machine. For the price, this is a bargain and it does work.

    I've been using this in my office and I use it on the lowest setting and don't' even know it's on (I actually forget to turn it off because I do't know it's on). I think it has improved my air quality in my office for sure. It's always a dust fest and I haven't had the issues I was previously w/headaches and getting sick since I've been running it and doing other sinus maintenance along w/the purifier to improve my breathing & sinus issues. It's a great small size too.

    This my first Hamilton Beach product (ever). The machine a nice size, medium range. Quiet machine on lower settings (low/medium), and a slightly higher decimal on the high setting. I put it on high when the house is closed up, and return it to medium. I usually sleep at the low and medium setting. Best part, no replacement filters. Just vacuum the provided filter, or place a carbon filter (pennies on the dollar) over existing filter. Love this machine and have tried too many. Great price!!

    I bought this because my daughter has allergies and she was always waking up stuffy even though she is taking meds. I noticed a difference in just a couple days. Its small and can fit discreetly on a nightstand or dresser. I am very pleased with this product and I am planning on buying a second one.

    for years I had an old, bulky, take up too much space air purifier. I was looking for a smaller one for the cat's bathroom to suck up some of the litter dust (99% dust free - right!). this one fits on the counter and does the job! I love that I can clean the filter without having to buy new ones each month. I'm very satisfied with this product.

    This is exactly what I was looking for, great price and very quiet. The size is perfect and it is not Heavy, which is nice if you want to move to a different room... the only Thing Missing or I am un sure about is, if it is energy efficient. If it is then it deserves 5 stars.

    It is small in comparison to many others however it functions as if much bigger in comparison to larger units Have utilized it for a short period of time but so far very pleased. Need to review at a later date. Best Buy needs to change this feature of reviews

    I really like this air filter. It runs very quietly and features a permanent filter. My only issue with it is the filter is somewhat hard to remove for cleaning. It has multiple plastic arms that pop into place, and I've already broken one during removal. Be careful when removing them.

    I purchased this purifier for my newborn son's room. It works great at getting the air in the room smelling better. The whisper quiet mode is very quiet. I can hardly tell its on most of the time. I haven't had this long enough to clean the filter, but it looks pretty straight forward to clean.

    The reusable filter is a selling point, as many other air purifiers require you to buy replacement filters. At the lowest speed, this purifier has a "whisper" noise level, while the highest setting is of course louder but certainly cleans the air in the room in about 20-30 minutes.

    I have had it a week..it has a whisper quiet mode which is great since I keep it near litter box. I have a senior cat and I can tell the difference already. I am going to buy another for my upstairs, it is hot and musty since we dint use it much. But as I said I like it so far.

    I needed a new air filter to remove dust and allergens in our bedroom. This one is good for our size room. I’m pleased that the filter can be cleaned instead of being replaced.

    I buy this Hamilton Beach for my mom. I think it is good for now. If it will be good for long I will buy more. They should suggest a good vacuum for that special small Hamilton Beach air filter,
