    I'm glad I purchased this product. It not only cleans the air but it makes just the right amount of noise during the night to help me sleep. Plus it keeps me cool.

    Really helps with some of the pet dander and allergins in our house, is very quiet on sleep mode. However I hate that you can't turn the lights all the way off on the top. It's a bright display so at night it's is bad in a bedroom.

    This fan was purchased January 2018, basically ran until now, and it's making awful noises. Especially when oscillating, I guess I'm past the return period so I'm stuck with a broken $150 fan...... AND the lights on top don't turn off, so I just have to leave a shirt over them at night. The non-oscillating short fat model is much better, I have this unit at work....

    I like the AirGenius 5 Air Cleaner. I leave it on all day and have noticed less dust in the room. It's great that I don't have to buy expensive replacement filters. The only thing I don't like, is that I am unable to turn off the bright blue lighting from the display at night.

    So far, I love everything about this purifier except for the backlight. It's pretty bright and can be annoying at night. However, I just put a tshirt on top of it. This is the only reason I did not give it 5 starts. Other than that, I am very happy with my purchase and look forward to future uses!

    Not bad but not worth the price

    Bought this air purifier to help a dog with allergies to pretty much everything. While I didn'tice the plasticky smell everyone else notices, it's not anything I'dn't expect from a brand new product made entirely out of... Wait for it... Plastic. It moved a great deal of air, and was whisper quiet on every level below 4. What ultimately lead to me returning this product however, was its build quality. The first few nights it worked spot on with no issues, but after about a week I began to notice several mechanical noises from the machine; A low thrumming from the motor became persistant even on "sleep" mode, and was irritating enough to keep me awake at night. I was also able to hear the oscillating motor after a few days, which was a simple fix by turning it off when not needed. These are things that would have been acceptable in a less expensive machine, but with such a high asking price ($249.99 at time of purchase), I expected much higher quality. Another niggle was the insanely bright lights on the top of the unit- had to throw a washcloth over it at night so it didn't light the entire room up, as they are unable to be turned off. I cannot attest to thr quality of the air during my ownership because I lack the equipment and don't personally have allergies, and I didn't notice a decline in the amount of dust at all. The electrostatic filter did begin to change from a bright white to a pale white over a few days though, and a close visual inspection showed what the filter was picking up. Overall, I'd rate it a 6/10. Had the price been lower I'd have better tolerated these issues, but I expect much more quality when I'm being asked for much more of my money.

    Great for the bedroom, quiet

    I chose this unit because it had 5 fan speeds. It turns out the lowest setting is really quiet, just right for sleeping. I live in an extremely dusty area, an my allergies really stuff me up at night. Since I started using this unit I have been free of the sore throats and stuffy nose. I have tried it in my living room and I can tell it helps, but my home has a lot of open areas and this unit is not enough to do the whole house. I really like it and would recommend it for people who have allergy issues and dusty environments.

    I got this on sale and so far so good. A member of the family has bad allergies and was very pleased with this product after a couple of days. It helped tremendously with their allergies. Love the fact that you don't have to purchase filters. It is extremely quite. At night, the low blue lights might be an issue if it's in your sleeping quarters.

    I live with a chef who cooks with a lot of very pungent ingredients. Our HVAC sucks in air from the kitchen and dumps it in my room. I've been to 3rd world countries that smelled better than it did in my room! I was getting sick from the smell, and started breathing less deeply because it was so hard to inhale with how bad the air smelled. Every day I would open my window and try and air out my room. My bedroom window doesn't get much air and my room is a bit small. I did a little research and found this air purifier. Holy cow what a difference! I like that the filters can be cleaned and that I don't have to buy new filters all the time. This oscillates but I don't need that. It also has an ambient light at the base which I also don't need. Thankfully the lights on top aren't bright enough to keep me awake at night. It also has 5 different levels of cleaning so during cold season, it will kill germs and (potentially) keep you from getting colds/flu. I've literally lost weight because I can actually breathe deeply again. My only regret is I wish I had this years ago.
