Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tatt2dmoon Excellent Value for a Hepa/Ionic purifier
I purchased this because I have a dog, cat and now an African Grey Parrot and 3 kids and large trees in the yard with pollen UGH !!.
This moves the air very well. The air coming out the front is equal to my box fan. I won't need it in the LvgRm. anymore.
It has 3 speeds and you can turn the Ionic thing on and off. I cant use it with the bird. Its not good for them.
Swivel Base is handy to. Nice long cord. Its tall and nice looking.
Sounds like a fan on high. Not so bad on 2 and zero sound on low.
The only issue I think anyone would have is the sound. I don't mind a fan and that's the sound it has.
It comes with 2 hepa filters ( C ) and a washable pre filter.
I opted to buy the B filter for odor control for the pets.
As soon as I started it the pet odors went away. YES That fast. I could see the tiny particles getting sucked into the back of it.
Its Powerful. For basically $99 its an awesome buy and I like that I can wash or replace the filters. The ones you have to wipe off or vacuum to me aren't as efficient and you pay more too.
When the filters are dirty a light comes on. It says to replace them with new. However I washed them out and let it dry, got 2 uses before having to buy another one.
Don't get sucked into buying some $300 unit that has all the same features. I am buying another one for our bedroom. GREAT ITEM :) A+++++++++++++

Doesn't work in spaces of 200 sq. feet. Won't clean smoky air.

It may be a little loud on high but it gets the job done.

We purchased this air purifier for our bedroom because my husband has allergies. We keep the bedroom door closed all the time to keep our cat out and the room used to get a bit stuffy but the air purifier actually helps with this. Nice and quiet and the white noise it produces helps us sleep as a benefit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Homemaker Noisy but efficient
Set up was easy, installation of filters easy too. Not thrilled about the fan noise. Fan is not loud, but it is noisy enough to be obviously a fan running, so I can't run it while trying to sleep. I am a very light sleeper. I noticed a distinct improvement in air quality in our over-sized master bedroom the first day running it.

I purchased this air purifier a few months ago for my girlfriends birthday. She and I both love it. We keep it in her bedroom because her ceiling fan broke and it does a great job of cleaning and circulating the air. I don't know if it's true or not but she tells me I don't snore as much since we've been using it

Recently had my 70 yo grandma move in she used to smoke in her house, but at my place she smokes outside, this air purifier helped to remove the smokey smell from my basement while she is living her! I like this product it is nice and clean.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigGuyInMO Good, for the price cant beat it.
I got these in June of last year and have used them every single day since. I did a send in air test in May of last year and it found some mold spores in my air. I have a child with asthma and I too have asthma. We tore out walls and had the mold removed and cleaned and put up new drywall but I was still concerned about mold so I was looking for air cleaners that were HEPA filtered as well as affordable. This unit is both.
I bought three of them, one for my bedroom, one for my sons bedroom, and one for the living room. They all three run all the time, 24 hours a day. We also run the ionizer part, not sure if that does anything but having that light on makes me feel all warm inside like it is doing great things lol. I run them at low in the bedrooms at night due to the fan noise, I do have a fan running in my bedroom anyway so the noise is easily covered but on high these suckers put out some noticeable noise. During the day I run them on high and the one in the living room runs at medium at all times.
First I will cover value, they are a GREAT value, I clean the pre filter every week and it is disgusting to see the things this filter catches in the air. The regular HEPA filters I vacuum once a month, its not required but it makes me feel like I am making them filter better so I continue to do that.
Size, they are kind bulky but the tall round design makes them fit into places that a normal big round purifier would not fit, when we have company if they are in the way we simply set them in a corner and they still work while being out of the way.
The cost was around 99 bucks at the Home Depot for each unit, the person working in that department in the store in St Joseph Missouri was VERY well educated on this item and showed me several different ( and more expensive ) units and still recommended this item because of the pre-filter and the cost of replacement filters ( which you should never need ) being less than the other models.
Now for the cons, I can only think of one, I wish it would oscillate, to have it spin on its own base like some of the other models I would think it would catch some of the air faster and might circulate the air better. However for $100 less than the models that do spin on their base these will work out fine.
I HIGHLY recommend this particular purifier if you are an allergy or asthma sufferer, I am still amazed each time I clean the pre filters and we keep a VERY clean home due to our asthma. We do not have pets and we do not smoke so we can not comment on what it would do for those two things but it definitely helps with day to day air.
A+ for the honeywell hht-085
A+++ for Home Depot in St Joseph MO.
