My wife and I were constantly having to dust and vacuum due to all the particles in the air. After reading some of the reviews for this air purifier I thought we would go ahead and make the investment. Well after just 2 weeks I can honestly say this little beauty does excactly what it says. We just move it from room to room as needed and it does the rest. Heck, it has even cleared up our alergies. We are very pleased and other than it may make a little noise on high, for the most part, under normal operating conditions it is fairly quiet.
I quit smoking and have acquired a keen sense of smell. I was continually getting what I call "gasoline headaches". I live in Atlanta so the pollen here is terrible which has a awful smell. I also have 2 Old English Sheepdogs. That's what pushed me into buying an air purifier. I read alot of reviews on line and this purifier had some of the best reviews. The machine doesn't take up a lot of space and is sturdy with 2 dogs. The machine is no louder than a floor fan and after a couple of days you don't even hear it anymore. I've run the purifier since I took it out of the box and have not turned it off since except to clean the filters. It's amazing what these filters trap and gross to think that all of those particals are flying around in the air that we breathe.

I have three cats and wall-to-wall carpet and live in an area that has a lot of tree and grass pollen. This air purifier does a really great job at keeping the air in my bedroom clean and fresh-smelling. I sleep much better at night with clean air. Nice bonus: it keeps the room cooler and emits a soothing white noise when set on low or quiet. "Medium" is still not any noisier than a bedroom fan.
It does cool the room, the light can be a little bright for sleeping if you keep the purifier right beside the bed, (this problem is easily solved by turning the purifier to the wall) and - the biggest drawback - there are a lot of parts to disassemble and have to be put back together just right when cleaning the purifier. However, these are a small part to pay when considering how well the purifier does its job and how quiet it is. Would definitely recommend, and I may purchase another one for the family room.

This is a great air purifier. It does't take up a lot of room, and really cleans the air. I always use one in my bedroom, not only for the purifying, but for the "white" noise it makes to help me sleep. This one is perfect!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? exactly the same, slightly lighter

I bought one for myself and loved it so much I bought 2 more. One for my mother and one for my mother-in-law. I bought mine to help with the dust. I bought it for them to help with the smoke. Now visiting is not nearly as bad with the air purifier taking away the smoke. What a great gift for me. lol
I have only had this air purifier for a little over 2 weeks, & I find it is working great so far! I have always had a problem with dust & orders due to pets, & it has done a great job! Thinking on buying another for my master bedroom!!!

How are the filters cleaned or replaced?
What is the cost of replacement filters if they are needed on Jun 9, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The filters are recommended to be cleaned every 2 to 3 months, depending on the air pollution (heavier air pollution, clean every 1-2 months). The black pre-filter does not need to be replaced and can be washed with cold or warm water. The plasma dust collector will indicate when it needs to be cleaned. This can be cleaned with a regular household cleaner, dish detergent or can be soaked prior to cleaning. It is recommended to use a scouring pad or toothbrush to clean this dust collector. The HEPA/Carbon filter will need to be vacuumed every couple of weeks, and replaced on a yearly basis. The photocatalytic filter (TiO2) has a life span of 2-3 years and does not need to be cleaned.
