The only unfortunate thing I can say about it, and others have touched on this issue as well, is that there is a burning plastic smell that I noticed for the first several hours upon turning on the power. My room is medium sized, roughly 75-80 sq. feet (if I had to guess), and the smell was quite potent, especially for the first hour. I remember wondering if the thing would be kind enough to suck up its own smell, but the answer of course was no. Luckily, the smell soon faded and this purifier has been great ever since. I’ve read other complaints about the glowing blue light keeping people awake at night. I’m glad I’m stubborn and ignored these reviews, because those complaints almost kept me from buying the damn thing. I wouldn’t say the light is exactly bright, more of a soft glow, but if you’re sensitive to that sort of thing (as I very much am) you can simply turn off the U.V. while you sleep. It will continue to work amazingly without this feature running, although I do leave it on during the day while I’m at work. Does it actually do anything? I have no idea.
Finally, I want to add that in NJ, where I live, this is currently prime allergy season, but when I wake up I feel completely neutral, as if the air outside weren’t saturated with pollen (and God knows what else–it’s NJ!). It’s actually quite amazing.
Pros: great for allergies, strong quiet suction, aesthetically pleasing beyond belief, will keep your space smelling nice, virtually no dust anywhere
Cons: that damn smell for the first several hours

I specifically chose this one for aesthetic (and because of the good reviews) and it is a very good looking machine. Most of my furniture is white and this blends in while also not taking up much foot space. The only issue I have with the design is that the vents are in the back, so this can not be tucked away into a corner. I’d say it would have to be about a foot away from the wall at least for proper airflow. That’s not a problem for us, and I think the sleek design of the machine makes up for it.
As for sound, I live in New York City, and there’s constant noise pollution coming in from outside. The air purifier on the highest setting is about as loud as a powerful fan or an air conditioner on the lowest setting. If you live in a very quiet place I’d imagine it may be a little noisy and if you can’t stand white noise, the highest setting will be bothersome. That being said, settings 4-1 are very quiet. Setting three has basically no sound. I’ve left it on setting 5 the whole time I’ve had it and I barely register it being there at all.
I have this set up specifically for the largest room in my small apartment, the living room and kitchen area (approx. 200 sq ft ) and I think it does an adequate job with that space. I see significantly lest dust, and since we’ve placed it next to the litter box, much less odor near that area.
I can’t really tell you if the UV function is working, but if the light is bothersome at night you can turn off this function with a press of a button.
Most importantly, I genuinely feel like this machine has helped the quality of the air in my home. I’ve not woken up with a stuffy nose or scratchy throat since receiving it. I’ve had friends sleep over and they’ve said similar things. We’re all breathing better.
Included are some photos of the machine and about a two weeks worth of dust and stuff in the filter. I was absolutely amazed by how dirty the filter was after this short time. I did a quick vacuum and it looked good as new.
