Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jeffer03 Rattles like a bag of bones and won't shut off
Just bought this 2 days ago, removed plastic from filters plugged in and immediately it turned on. I pressed the power button and cycled through the 3 settings expecting it to turn off on the next press. But it didn't stop even though none of the lights were lite next to Power. I read the manual to make sure that's what should happen and confirmed it should shut off. I have to pull the plug to get it to shut down.
Additionally to that it sounds like a little jack hammer. I pressed all around the door and outside shell to see if I could find the source of the rattling. Seems to me it's the internal fan. I've fixed computers for over 30 years so have a wee bit of experience with listening for noises and identifying the source.
I'll be taking this back to exchange for another one and give them one more shot. If there are any problems with the 2nd one I'll be looking at different brands. BTW I found it interesting when you open the package there is a big STOP sign notice saying "Do not bring this back to the store, please call this number for support". You can bet your booty I'm returning this, based on my diagnosis this one is a dud a lemon and there's no way they are going to fix this over the phone, although I will give them the opportunity to try.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jake excellent product, it has helped my lungs a lot
It was very easy to put together. The instructions were great on how to run it. Everything worked perfect. It is nice an quiet, which is really nice since it is in our bedroom. It was really a great purchase. It should really make a difference with winter coming.

This unit is loud.
If the decibel meter app is to believed, then
Avg db in house with nothing on - 30db
Avg db with phone held next to unit - 70-75db with peaks around 88db
avg db from 2ft is about 45db.
I can get sustained 90db putting the phone right next to the vent.
Avg Idylis IAP-GG-125 next to unit - 60 db with peaks around 70
avg db from 2ft - 35db
the most I could get the meter to peak at was around 80 right next to the unit.
With my limited scientific testing, it seems the idylis purifiers are at least 10db quieter. At 2ft away it is barely louder than the ambient noise levels in the house without the purifiers running. I'll be getting another Idylis to replace this one. In the mean time, I'll just use my ear plugs.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Micky Not that great
Doesn't really work that good for odors. I used to have an ionized air purifier it worked a lot better but it cost a lot more than this one. The front panel is really cheesy and it doesn't close all the way, flimsy. I guess for the money it's OK.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Fort Close to perfect, except for one very annoying thing
So close to being a five-star product. It is simple and quiet. The HEPA filter is easy to replace, and fits snuggly in place so that all of the air has to pass through it. Bravo for that, as many air purifiers let a lot of air pass around the sides of the filter. The problem is the pre filter, which needs to be replaced every month or two. The pre filter only comes in a large folded sheet, with a template and instructions on how to cut the right sized filter. The first time I tried to cut the filter, it was too large. Then too small. Threw away, tried again. It requires total precision or it won't fit, but it is hard to cut to the right size because it comes folded, and the creases keep it from laying flat to cut. Likewise, when it is finally cut to the correct size, those same creases keep the pre filter from laying flat against the HEPA filter, so that only a little air may or may not actually pass through it. Also, the replacement pre filter is not quite as thick and stiff as the one that comes new with the unit. And then you have to store the rest of the unused pre filter (and the stupid template). Please, Honeywell, sell a pre-cut pre filter in the perfect size and thickness, with no creases. This little air purifier would be PERFECT if you did.
