    I'm a lifelong allergy sufferer. I tend to roll with the punches and each season brings about their own ailments, but I've transitioned into Winter being the worst. I usually load up on the usual suspects (musinex, corticosteroids, saline rinses, allergy pills), but I will still develop a classic runny nose, bad sinuses and the dreaded post nasal drip and tickle in my throat. Being outside does help but only so much. This Winter has kicked it up a notch and I'm not alone as my fiance is also feeling it for the first time which makes our household a coughing, sneezing mess. We did all the ground work including steam cleaning head to toe, blower and ductwork cleaning and certification and making sure to use high grade filters, but those particulates still seem to get the best of us in the Winter and my throat is in a constant case of tickle/cough. After reading numerous reviews, this unit seemed to provide the best price:performance ratio so I picked one up to give it a try. The instructions and usage are straight forward. 3 HEPA filters and a large odor/particulate filter that sits on top of them with a massive intake fan that throws out a massive amount of air depending on setting. The unit has three settings (low, med, high) along with a "turbo" setting when you want to circulate a room as quick as possible. I work from home, so I decided to set the unit up in my computer/office area, shut the door and set it to turbo. Turbo is very loud, but that is to be expected. I had it running for 20-30 minutes before I sat down to work. I had grown so accustomed to hacking and sneezing in my office while working that it took me almost an hour to realize I hadn't hacked or sneezed not once. Another hour passed and, nope, no hacking or sneezing. As a test, I took some of my work and laptop to my living room and worked from there and within 10-20 minutes my old nemesis returned and I was once again hacking and sneezing. I opted to move the unit to the living room and let it run all day and when my fiance got home her much less than mine hacking and sneezing was basically non-existent. We both agreed the air smelled much cleaner and fresher, which was a plus, but mainly the greatly reduced (me) and effectively neutralized (her) hacking and sneezing was the big winner here. Another plus is it is fairly light weight and has two handle grooves on each side for easy transport to move it room to room; but I am so impressed with this thing, I will be buying another just for my office that I can leave on low/med and one for the main living room. On low, this thing is near in-audible. Medium you can hear it but it isn't bad. High is definitely present and accounted for and Turbo is clearly short for Turbo Jet. Be warned it is not small nor compact so it will be noticeable. The power cord has decent length allowing it to be placed as desired in most cases. With all the above being said, will this be a miracle cure for everyone? No, of course not. Worst case scenario, you help clean and purify your air even if you continue to suffer in the same or other aspects. Best case, it is able address much (if not all) of your allergy, dust, mold, spore, particulate problems and help you breathe better and reduce symptoms (which it has done for myself and my fiance). Two Thumbs up.

    Best purifier for the money (on the market)

    I was originally planning on getting a Dyson or even better a Molekule (which is $799). After way too much research I've learned that while those are both nice and effective products (especially the Molekule), the Honeywell True HEPA does the same job (or at least 99.9% of the job) as the Molekule. I did so much research as my primary reason for buying is was because my daughter and then I were both coughing and having allerges we'd never had before, and I thought it could be mold or something else in the air. And it worked on every front.Even if you can afford either, the Honeywell is recommended for a reason, and it has proven to be worth it. It's still more expensive than most of the competition, but you get top of the line results without spending almost a grand in cash. Our whole home smells noticeably better all the time. We have two cats, and if the cat's area smells from the litter box or anything else, I move it there and the place smells grand in 10 minutes. Totally worth it.

    I'm a Believer Now

    I've wanted to try an air purifier for a while now but where I lived I had large open areas (two story house, open concept kitchen/living area, vaulted master bedrooms). I recently downsized to smaller house with normal height ceilings and decided to pull the trigger on a good sized air purifier. I'm honestly amazed at how well this has worked out for me. I have asthma and allergies but have 2 dogs (go figure right) and since I set up the air purifier in my house my nose has been so clear! General stuffiness and congestion are pretty much gone! It's been years and years since I've have such a consistently clear nose and it really has converted me into a believer. If you have a modestly sized place I really think these things can make a huge difference!

    Was looking for a unit with a washable filter to cut the cost of purchasing the filters (which are pricey and will add up over time). My doctor informed me that air purifiers with a true HEPA filter work best for seasonal allergies. So I purchased this Honeywell unit. Easy to set up (make sure you remove the filters from the plastic bags). I ran the unit on turbo for a few hours initially to clean the air, then adjusted the settings. Turbo is very loud. the two lower settings can be used when sleeping. I did notice a difference with the air quality. The itchy, watery eyes decreased tremendously. It is large enough to move unit from my bedroom to the living room area. I'm happy with the unit.

    One morning the sun shown through my living room and I saw a ton of dust in the air. After reading many details and reviews I decided to buy this one. I'm very happy! There are three speeds, the lowest makes no noise at all, the middle speed has some noise but not bad, the high speed is overkill and to noisy. After two months now the pre-filter is disgusting and I need a new one (it must have taken out a ton out of the air. I run it during the day and shut it off at night. The one negative I have is that the controls are on the top and are sensitive to the touch, this is a problem sometimes if you have cats that like to get up on it. They tend to cause it to go to different speeds, etc. Other than that this thing is great!

    We've had the Honeywell Air Purifier in our home for the past month using it (1) to reduce dust and allergens from our bedroom and (2) to provide "white noise" at night. The unit has a range of fan speeds -- the lowest two speeds are sufficiently quiet for overnight bedroom use. The lighted display is a bit bright for nighttime bedroom use but the unit has a dimmer/light off switch. The unit does not "remember" previous light-level settings so for overnight bedroom use, the light must to dimmed or turned off each time the unit is turned on. The pre-filter is easy to gently clean with a vacuum to extend the pre-filter's useful life.

    I have 2 dogs and never really had much of a dog smell. But i always have thought my home felt dusty. I clean constantly but still just didnt feel like the air was clean, especially now that its winter and windows remain shut. We bought this a week ago and holy cow has it made an improvment. After seeing what this can do, i dont know how weve been living so long without this. I didnt realize just how dusty our air was. I walk in and take the deepest beaths possible. Simply amazing! I want one for my bedroom and upstairs now! This one is big enough to notice a difference in the kitchen and living room.

    Although i have seasonal allergies I did not buy this for this purpose I bought it because I am a clean freak! Started to buy two one for upstairs one for down. Then decided I had 15 days to return I would try one first and decide if it was worthy of keeping and was it worthy of a second. It proved to be worthy! I have since bought a second for upstairs. I would say this what prompted me to get one to begin with was my Roomba's it AMAZES me how much they pick up daily even in unused rooms.you would not believe how much airborne crap they pick up daily ! Wondered how much more dust I could extract from air its shocking !!

    I got this to reduce dust and odors in my apartment, and it seems to do that very well. Air feels fresher and cleaner with this running. First two speeds are not very loud, but the top two speeds are much louder and can be annoying. My carbon pre-filter has already collected a lot of dust, and probably will need to be changed much sooner than the recommended 3 months. It's not really the fault of the filter; it's doing its job, but more a testament to the dust in my apartment (partly thanks to a german shepherd).

    We bought 2 of these units on sale. The entire family suffers from allergies plus we also have 2 dogs and an African gray parrot. After my wife did some research we went with these units and within an hour of operation we all noticed a big difference in clean air. One is placed in our master bedroom and one in the living room. In total we have 5 purifiers in our home (2400 square ft two story). We just replaced the filters for the first time which was simple, we do like the light feature stating to check the filters. Also the noise of the purifiers help us sleep.

    I got this for a medium size room even though it is for larger rooms. I wanted to ensure the air was filtered multiple times a day. I bought the non-Honeywell replacement filters because I got more for the same price. As long as they say "True HEPA" then that's all that matters. The carbon pre-filter does an excellent job getting rid of any smells. Overall it is quiet unless you put it on Turbo mode. But even on Turbo, it isn't too bad. It's moving a LOT of air at that point.

    The Honeywell air purifier works great. I use this in the bedroom for my daughter who suffers from asthma and allergies. Since using this she sleeps much better at night. The air definitely is cleaner. This purifier is very quiet unless you turn it on turbo which actually isn’t that bad. I would highly recommend this for allergy/asthma sufferers or for anyone.

    I've been using this for half a year and it's made such a huge quality of life improvement. I used to wake up congested, but this has eliminated the dust and I guess pollen from the air in my house. I ran it in a room that had a mold issue right after the carpet was torn up before vinyl plank flooring went in and it got rid of the odor in 10 minutes. I run it 8 hours a day in my house. The filters have to be bought online to get the full sized carbon pre-filter.

    They say that air inside the home is much dirtier than the air outside. This air purifier is a game changer. I have never breathed so well before in my life. I also purchased the smaller version for my bedroom. This one I currently use in my living room. I don't run them all the time and the timer settings are nice so that I may run them for short intervals and not have to walk over and turn them off. I could not recommend these air purifiers from Honeywell enough, especially if you can get them on sale like I did!

    this thing is a monster, works great with cleaning the air, I have bad allergy due to having 2 dogs. We bought the model below this one and it did a decent job, figure a bigger one that has more sq ft coverage might do a better job and it did. Air is super clean and I turn on turbo mode for 4hrs once a week to extra filter the air. love this machine, only downfall is filter price. It needs 3 hepa filter, but it's worth the trouble cuz it reduced my allergy attacks. Grab one!! worth every penny.

    I purchased 2 of these for my mother when she found out by her doctor that she is pretty much allergic to everything. I got these to filter the dust and allergens out of the air and they do an outstanding job. They have 3 smaller filters with one large mesh-type filter and this product does what it advertises. In just a few days, you could see all of the dust that this machine was able to filter out of the air. Great product!

    We bought 2 of these to freshen our house as we had some water leaks leading to mold that was recently removed. The air felt clearer and not as heavy after using this for about 24 hours. It also smelled much better in our house. The machine is quiet which is helpful to keep running around the clock. Set up was straight forward and easy. I feel like the purchase was worth it! Will be using all the time (especially living in Phoenix).

    I purchased this for my husband who was having difficulty sleeping due to allergens and pet dander as we have two very fluffy cats. After the first night he woke up in the morning saying that he didn't wake up during the night coughing for the first time in months. We keep it on the low setting 24/7 and it is quite quiet. It definitely does what I purchased it for--keeping the air cleaner and allowing him to breathe much easier!

    I upgraded from another Honeywell Art Purifier I had. It works great for me. I love the 3 modes of Germ General Cleaning and Allergen. Being able to change between them is great. I can tell the difference in this purifier from the previous one. And it works for well with the larger areas of the house. I can leave it when I leave home and when I come back, the area feels and smells different. Much cleaner. It really helps a lot for my allergies.

    I bought this unit because it was designed to cover a large area and it also had excellent reviews. I run it at a medium setting and the fan sound is not excessive so as to interfere with either TV or conversations. It did a superb job of cleaning up the air in our house the first few days it was in operation. The difference since then in the house is noticeable and we are very pleased wtth the unit.
