    During the month of August we had really poor air quality. This product helped my feel I could breath better within my home during a time of poor air quality due to forest fires.

    We were very happy with this product. Bought it for smoke and very poor air quality from a fire. There was a noticeable difference from the room we used it in compared to the others.

    Purchased during massive forest fires because air quality was so bad. It does 250 sq. ft. which was more cost effective than all the others for price and size. only downside is non-replaceable odor filters which are optional anyway.

    Wife got it to control pet dander in our home. We have a German Rottweiler and and inside cat that normally sleep inside in our sun room. It's quite and has pleasing design. After the initial use, we also noticed that the air in the house was fresher and didn't feel as stale. The cleaning in easy to do. The filter are mostly inexpensive but provide a great improvement for stale indoor air.

    I put this in my great room using the odor reducing filter. When I walked in the room, the air was noticeably fresher. That night I moved it to our bedroom and kept it there the next day. The air was so fresh and clean. However, at about the third day, the air was not as fresh. It started working more as a fan instead of a purifier. After about a week of just blowing around stale air, I ended up returning it.

    Extremely Expensive Tower Fan!

    I purchased this from Best Buy 2 weeks ago for $179.99, used it for one week and took it back for a refund before the 15 day return policy was up. I noticed absolutely no difference in air quality and the filter didn't have a speck on it. That's way too much money for an oscillating tower fan. I smoke in my home and have 2 indoor cats. I placed the unit in my living room, per instructions 3 feet from the wall and not quite 3 feet from "my spot" on the couch, which is about 2 feet from where one of my cats' beds is. I ran it constantly, night and day, for 4 days, on high at night and medium or low the rest of the time. After running for 4 days and noticing no change in the air, I removed the cover and checked the filters, as clean as when I put them in the unit. Since my living room is 18x16 and can't be completely closed off from the rest of the house, I thought perhaps the unit was too small for the room and moved it into my bedroom. I let it run in there for 3 days with no noticeable change. Filter remained clean as a whistle. My opinion is that if the filter didn't show anything after running for a week in my house, it's not really filtering or purifying the air. I didn't need a tower fan.

      I would recommend running the unit for a couple of weeks then checking the filter.
