Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wolfgang Powerful and a must for hot water/radiator heating
Our house is a 100+ yr. old Victorian with big radiators so we depend on this Honeywell for continuous air cleaning. By continuous, I mean 24/7/365 for 5 yrs.- we never turn it off!!!! We clean it 4 times a year 1.flip it over and unscrew a 4 inch knob 2. slide out the non-washable HEPA filter and washable foam filter. 3.release the Velcro straps of the foam filter, beat it against the fence and wash it off with the garden hose. It will dry on the fence in no time. 4. replace the HEPA filter once a year just for peace of mind.
This is a real workhorse for the downstairs and we are going to finally get one for the upstairs. Even though the big upstairs humidifier has a filter, dusting needed for the two floors is like night and day.
Yes, it is a little loud on the max. fan setting but we have a very active dog and 3,000 sq. ft. home on a state highway.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nini True HEPA Allergen Remover
Last of the best, Honeywell air purifier is becoming increasingly hard to find. The unit is well made and reasonably quiet. Honeywell replacement filters, (actually a pre-filter (the main Hepa filter needs replaced every 3 years), are readily available at least for now. I usually sleep with a fan going all night, the unit is only slightly louder than my fan. My Southwestern USA seasonal allergies usually begin in late February early March. Consequently it's too early too tell how effective this unit will be, which is why I rated it 4 stars. I have had other Honeywell air purifiers in the past and they performed well over time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Judy The only allergen filter to have.
I believe in the "True HEPA Allergen Remover" from my own experience and the fact that the American Lung Assoc recommends it as their #1 choice. I wore my last two out. And I noticed my morning serial dozen sneezes stopped along with the clear Karo Syrup coating in my mouth and throat disappeared. And the cough that accompanied ended after I started using the Hepa again.
I do have allergies, mild asthma and annual upper respiratory viruses.
My goal is to manage/prevent the above maladies.
IE. when working in the fall yard I am going to wear a mask, shower and wash clothes when done.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GAJan Great help with my allergies
The pre-filter was easy to install and directions were very clear. Since I have had it running 24/7 it has helped with my allergies to dust mights. I have gotten a larger unit for the larger room in the apartment because the first one works so well in the bedroom. I am sleeping much better and not coughing nearly as much. Life is easier and better with the allergen remover.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by garyb444 Excellent Product
I really like this product. The air purifier is very light weight with a handle right on top - very easy to move from room to room, which is what I do with it. I am suffering with allergies and breathing issues, and I find it works very well. The one thing I don't like that I find it too loud for me to sleep with it. Not a problem to watch TV with it on. (Other commenters seem to be OK with the noise when sleeping). The other reason I find it difficult to sleep with is the bright blue light which lights up the room. Perhaps on the next model they could add a 'night mode' button that would dim the blue light! Instead of sleeping with it, I use it in the bedroom for a couple of hours before I go to sleep to clear the air. It definitely helps. It has a lifetime HEPA filter that vaccums clean and then another foam pre-filter that will need to be replaced. All in all, a good deal at a good price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by honey so far so good, haven't had it long enought to know if it is going to improve my quality of life
recommended by someone who has had it for 6 months, hoping it will maintain my dust problem once I have 100% cleaned my house, it is maintaining what I have done so far. It looks like I will get a 2nd one as soon as I can afford it, am moving it from living room to bedroom when I get up in the am and back to the living room at bedtime. I wish it was quieter on high, it is too loud to hear or talk normally, on low it is fine.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LaurieL seems to work fine
We bought it to help clean the air in our home because hubby as cat allergies and recently has started wheezing so we think he may have asthma as well so we were hoping cleaning the air would help.
We run this on medium setting most days. His allergies etc haven't really improved much but I suppose cleaner air can't hurt.
The medium setting is rather loud, unable to have it in the room if you are watching a movie for instance.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jackie It does what it claims
Although the unit is loud in the normal setting, it is relatively quiet in the evening setting, which we usually keep it on. The unit is excellent at eliminating large particles in the air (less dusting) and seems to do an excellent job of cleaning the air generally. I am very pleased with its operation and will probably purchase an additional unit in the near future for another part of the house.
