    Very Nice for price

    Very good air purifier. I noticed difference in air quality right away after leaving it running for first 4 hours. The air smelled cleaner and was fresher. As a allergy sufferer, I can attest to the difference I feel when I breathe: no more watery eyes or stuffed up nose or nasal drip. And, running in Quiet mode, it is silent and allows me to sleep with it on all night. While there may be better air purifiers, they usually cost twice as much money. Even though the filters need to be changed every 3 months at approximately $60 for 3 filters, the cleaner air is priceless. I hope to do a update review in future once I see how durable this machine is, since I run it 24 hours a day. Would have given it a 5 star if not for the yearly cost of filter changes.

    Initially, the purifier had a horrible plastic/chemical smell and I thought we would have to return it. We ran it on turbo mode for well over a week and eventually that smell dissipated. We like the different modes that you can set the purifier in, and the dimmer light feature as we have this in the bedroom. Its quite loud in turbo mode, but you barely notice it in regular mode. I haven't had it long enough to make any other assertions about how it works. We were quite surprised that it takes multiple filters: 3 white ones, 1 black one. The box comes with what you need when you first order it.

    Did notice an improvement

    We did notice an improvement with this unit. Of course we have 2 cats and a CAG parrot and just the parrot alone sheds tons of dander. Giving these environmental conditions I still think it's great that we have noticed an improvement in our allergies even though the improvement isn't extreme. The fact that it's still improved is good, considering mine are all but gone and my fiances is better. His were just horrible previously and he didn't notice a difference at first but he isn't blowing his nose near as often as he used to! So IMO extreme improvement would mean his gone as well but it is still a great unit in that his have improved considering the pets that we have. I am glad I purchased it :)

    Needed Help with Allergies

    We recently got new birds and found that these two make much more dander than the previous one that we had (two different varieties). The new element to the air at the house set off coughing spells so this purchase was made. I do not hear as much coughing from my daughter which is the good thing so it appears to be doing the job that was needed. We will keep on using it. We have had this less than a month so I have not had to change the filters yet, but replacement is recommended fairly often. I was unable to buy any replacements at the time of purchase. None were in stock. The four rating comes from the amount of noise generated by the product. It can be fairly loud.

    Bought one and it seems to be doing a great job so far. They are good looking and not too loud. Highest setting is kinda loud but not intolerable and the others are fine. Lowest setting is a whisper. I saw a second one on BB and it was on sale so I bought the second one and put it upstairs. I haven't had either long enough to judge the full effectiveness of them but after one week I vacuumed the filer on the first one and there was a lot there so they must be working. It smells like it, you can tell difference.

    In our apartment we have issues with cigarette smell coming from another apartment. So we decided to buy this air purifier. Although it did not removed the smell completely, it did a good job cleaning the air. It feels better overall. It comes with different speeds, including a super slow one, which is perfect to leave it on all night. Just keep in mind that it is necessary to replace the filters often if you have a problem like we do. During the first couple of days we noticed a plastic smell, nothing major, and it went away.

    I have MULTIPLE allergies and had gotten to the point that it was difficult to breathe through my nose, even with my allergy medications. Within 2 hours of using this, I was comfortably breathing through my nose! It’s easy to pick up and move. The 4 filters, including one for odors, are easy to replace. It’s a bit noisy on high, but reasonably priced and was ranked reasonably high by Consumer Reports. On high, it puts out a good amount of cool air so place it in the room to accommodate your tolerance for this.

    I purchased this to replace my old Hepa filter. I had read reviews that said this was loud but I was very surprised by how noisy it ended up being. This is comparable to my old model, but is so much louder. I have terrible allergies. I run two units in my home at all times. I can’t run this one while I am in the same room. Still, it works well and does what it is supposed to.

    I live out in the country surrounded by agriculture. My home AC units have extensive prefilters on the unit itself and still with amount of dust that surrounds me I needed something else to control my allergies. I purchased my first Honeywell air purifier three months ago and since then I have purchased two more of the same Honeywell air purifiers. They have worked wonders for my allergies.

    Great purifier, expensive filters

    This is the best air purifier I have ever owned. With multiple features and settings you can keep the air in your home fresh. However the HEPA filter system calls for 3 filters and a pre-filter, Honeywell sells replacement filters that only have 2 or 4 filters. Not to mention they are about $50 for the 2 pack. Other than that it’s great for an entire home.

    Over all this filter works as described. It's not without a couple of minor issues. First it does put out a noticeable odor. After a couple of weeks of use the odor seemed to disappear. I left it off for about 3 weeks and when I started using it again the odor returned. I suspect nose blindness. Second it is noisy on the high setting but it is moving a lot of air.

    Very quiet at night.

    This air purifier uses HEPA filters and removes dust and pollen from the air as advertised. I followed advice to get a machine for a larger room than listed so that it would be quiet on low speed. I run it at medium speed during the daytime and at night on low speed and can hardly hear it. It costs more than smaller machines but it’s worth it to me.

    Definitely seems to be moving quite a bit of air. Not exactly sure how that corresponds to say an open living room and kitchen. Have only had for a few days but seems to slightly help with cat box odors. Not sure about dust yet but seems slightly better so far. I would suggest something with an ionizer for truly fresher smelling air.

    We've had this in service for a bit over two weeks now, and I find its features (three levels of air flow, 2-4-8 hours or endless operating time) to be quite useful. Also, it is quieter than I was anticipating after reading a review in CR. I can't judge yet how expensive it will prove to operate. But so far I am satisfied.

    I had terrible allergies to my basement. So, I first tried purchasing an air purifier (this item). After still sneezing constantly, I replaced the old couch in my basement. Now I can be down there several hours at a time, which is great. So, I don’t know if this item can transform a dusty, moldy basement but it seems to at least assist in it.

    Cleaner air

    It is difficult to assess whether the air is cleaner, but I can report that the filters have appeared dirtier with use. We usually run the purifier on the highest setting, which is good white noise for sleeping, but fairly loud if you want to use it in a family room area.

    Works great. Multiple shutdown times. Multiple speeds for different allergen types. On the general setting it's very quiet but can be loud on the highest setting. Worth the purchase. I would give it a 5* if it had the capability to display how much ppm it's actually cleaning/detecting and was smart home capable.

    Nice air filter. I don't find it as loud as other reviewers. Suppose that is all relative and what you are use to. Been using it for almost a month now, and seems to be doing a good job. Certainly is sucking in the dust. Room isn't as dusty as it was before. Can't say I notice a difference in air quality.

    During the wildfires here the air became toxic and this saved the day by cleaning the air in our home. Sitting by it is like sitting at an open window after rains have cleared the air. It not pretty due to the cheap plastic used, but it works very well.

    I bought this during the height of allergy season. I ran it at the allergy setting almost 24/7 and ran just fine the entire time, although it is a bit loud at that setting. I have a large living room and it seemed to do the job it was intended for.
