Rated 5 out of 5Â by alti I can breathe clean air.
Our allergies are so much better now. I really feel we are breathing cleaner air. My family has had bad allergies, especially bad at night. Since setting up the air purifier we all sleep better. No more stuffy nose. This unit will clean a large room. The screen is easy to read. The lights on the screen are soft and not bright. Hoover makes a quality product. You can adjust the time to run manually or set the timer. It has an automatic shutoff. It has three filters, one filter you can rinse out as needed. The hepa filter will need to be changed when the warning light comes on. 99.97% of dust and pollen removed. Intellisense control system senses air quality. 3 speed fan. Remote control included. This house I am in is older and has a musty smell, this smell is better now. Sleek look that fits in the room.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by mophead Quiet!
I have two older Mitsubishi Plasma Pure air cleaners that, in my opinion, are the finest air purifiers I've ever owned. However, replacement filters for the Mitsubishi are no longer available, so it's time for something new. The Hoover Air Purifier 600 seems to be, so far, just as capable, emitting clean-smelling air out the front of the unit. On the highest speed, it is quieter than the Mitsubishi's highest speed. The Hoover does not have an odor detector like the Mitsubishi, but its air cleaning capability appears to be just as good. The blue lights on top are a tad on the bright side, but are only a distraction if placed in close proximity to your head, next to your bed. This cleaner is best used in a bedroom, or similar sized room that is not a large great room. Filter element replacement is a breeze. Just depress the thumb latch on top of the cover in the back, remove the filter elements. When you open the cover, the power shuts off automatically, (I just hope the filter elements will be available for years to come...). I rate this Five Stars overall, Four Stars because it's plastic instead of aluminum, and Five Stars for value due to it's price vs capability. I can recommend this one!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MrFixIt A fully featured purifier / fan combo
I recently moved into a new place, and needed some sort of air mover for my bedroom. A fan would be too big and too noisy, and wouldn't necessarily clean the air. An air purifier would be good, but most of those don't really have any air flow. Enter the Hoover Air Purifier. This unit combines both air flow and cleaning in one. An excellent solution from Hoover.
Let's get right down to it. How does this air purifier work? On power-on, the unit defaults to speed 2 with both the UV and the ION on, regardless of what settings you had it on last. That's unfortunate, because most people will pick something that works for them, and stick with it. The 3 speed settings are a very nice feature. This allows the unit to purify the air while being almost whisper quite or act as a fan and blow quite a bit of air.
A fourth speed, the Auto mode, is a big unknown, as mine always defaults to the lowest speed.
One noticeable item is that the air flow from the front isn't uniform. This is due to the two smaller circular fans inside (one near the top, and the other near the bottom) actually doing the pushing, instead of some other type of vertical contraption.
When on, you can immediately smell the ionized air coming from the front, indicating that its working.
The whole unit doesn't rotate, so if you want an oscillation feature, you're out of luck.
The display panel and all the LEDs are surprisingly bright. When the UV function is on, the large blue light bar on the top lights up. I have this unit in my bedroom, and when it's on at night, this light lights up the entire room. This could be good or bad, depending on if you want a bright blue nightlight. The good news is that you can turn it off by disabling the UV.
The back-light on the display icons is also pretty bright, and changes colors from red to blue to green to orange seemingly randomly. Strangely, there's no way to tell what color it will be when you use it, nor a way to choose it manually, making this a completely unnecessary feature.
The Unit comes with a remote control, which is nice, but not necessarily useful. I'd imagine that most people would find a setting they liked and just leave it on. The remote range seems to max out at about 25 feet.
There is a convenient carrying handle in the back top of the purifier making moving the unit quite easy.
The power button light on the front of the unit is bright green. Even when turned off, the light pulses ominously. This could also be a bit annoying if you want your bedroom totally dark.
There are two filters that are are easily accessible in the back of the unit. The first is a washable pre-filter. I greatly appreciate the ability to hand wash this filter, as it will lengthen the life of the secondary HEPA filter. This second filter, Hoover# AH60015, can be purchased from Amazon for about $25. There is also the ability to replace the UV lamp in case it burns out. Hoover# 440001064 can be purchased from Hoover.com for $38.
An added safety features turns off the entire unit if you open the back filter cover while it is running.
A very nice full featured and compact air purifier. 3 speeds along with a UV function and Ionization allows the user to chose a mix of settings to their liking.
Lots of bright and confusing lights can be problematic if you want a dark bedroom. Washable filter and user serviceable parts from Hoover means this air purifier will last you a long time.
A small remote is included. An excellent overall design from Hoover.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Bakingmom Makes the air fresher.
The Hoover air filter does an excellent job of making the air smell fresh.It is easy to operate and clean. It uses a filter made of hepa media and has an icon to let you know when it needs to be changed.It also has a washable pre-filter. It has a lighted display and a remote control with 5 functions: Power, Speed, Ion filter, UV/TIO and Timer. The filter is relatively quiet, like a fan noise. The air that circulates through the filter is cool, which will also be nice in the summer. It is especially helpful for winter here, since our old furnace blows dust through vents. Since I am very sensitive to dust and chemicals I appreciate having this fillter since it makes the air noticeably more breathable.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by sdgiant Full range of filters
OVERALL: Good controls, intuitive and easy. Great range of filtration options, cleans a room quickly. Cleanable foam first filter saves HEPA filter if kept clean. Little noisy at high speed.
FILTRATION: Able to clean a smaller room (10x10 or so) quickly. Foam filter does not clog quickly, but if kept washed does improve life of HEPA filter. UV titanium oxide combo nice, but hard to quantify impact.
APPEARANCE: Good size. High is unobtrusive. It is a foot deep, so it can be a little obtrusive in terms of floor space, but not bad.
LIGHTS: Very bright LED lights. You're not going to want these in your bedroom while your sleeping, but they could be covered. On the upside, the blue looks nice when you aren't trying to snooze.
NOISE: Has four fan levels. Is a little noisy at 2 or 3. Usually leave at automatic, and turns down to low after a short while. Very quiet at low level.
