We have only had this a few days but I am already impressed with it"s performance from such a small and reasonable priced unit. I bought it because of the permanent filter which can be vacuumed : but i shall probably buy more for other rooms in our home.
I am pleased with the Hamilton Beach 04386 Allergen Reducer. On medium speed, the fan noise is audible but not to the point of distraction. On the lowest speed, I am unable to hear the fan. I use it in an area larger than 160 sq. ft. When I am able to afford it, I will order another.
I use air purifiers in 4 or 5 rooms in my house. I've had all kinds, from table top for small rooms, to the huge cumbersome round ones, to tall floor standing and now to this Hamilton Beach which I can put on a table or the floor. What can I say? I LOVE it! It clears the the same size room as larger unit and does it quietly. We all have allergies in my house to things outside and inside, including 2 dogs and a cat. One person has asthma and occasionally there is a residual odor from legal medicinal herbs or cooking fish! This machine does its job at a reasonable price and the perfect size. I own 2 already and will likely be buying a third since we just moved and there is one more room to keep fresh! It also makes a great white noise machine for people who sleep with a fan on AND an easy to clean filer!
