Having owned and used several types of air purifiers, I was looking for something with the following attributes: simple to use, leverages a HEPA filtration system, effective and quiet. I wanted something we could depend on at home to clean the air - from the wildfire particulates spreading over the US and the germs. This purifier seemed to check the boxes for the criteria.
Simplicity - If I want my parents to use this too, they prefer simple to use - the controls on this were just that. Easy on/off and controls for timer, fan speed (and auto) and sleep mode. The display up front showing air quality and associated color indicator makes it easy to tell the current air quality. I can see it change when I cook in the house too so I know it is working.
HEPA Filter - The cylindrical filter on this is half the size of the purifier itself! It has the typical filter layers for pre-filter, carbon and hepa. The rated hours is on par with the other purifiers I have. I will have to see how long it really lasts and the average costs for filter replacement for a year.
Effectiveness - When initially turning this on, I was on the border of red/blue zone. The fan was running at a higher level for a while and now is in the green zone - around 30 PM2.5. So far so good.
