-The fan is very loud on high, reasonable on medium and low. Nearly silent while on auto in the dark (except for the plasma generator). It still moves air when on low.
-The plasma generator has a sizzle sound similar to a small leak in a steam pipe. i will keep it but it has to be turned off if the environment isn't noisy enough to mask it.
-My unit is placed next to a couch that shades it from the window so it is silent mode most of the time but if i turn on a light it sounds like a hurricane then will slow down after a couple minutes.
-If its away from beds or seating areas its probably okay otherwise the plasma needs to be off and the fan on low. My bedrooms are silent. I wouldn't use it in a quiet bedroom at all unless there was a noisy air conditioner or fan already running.

Thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear about the noise issues you are experiencing with your new AP260. When in Auto mode, the unit should maintain the lowest fan speed possible to keep your air quality clean and fresh. The fan will operate on the higher fan speeds in Auto mode when it senses worsened air quality. The plasma generator is generally silent, but there are a few conditions that could cause your plasma generator to be making noise (humidity level, debris, etc.). If you would like to contact our US based call center at 1-800-541-6645 (8AM and 5PM CT, Monday through Friday) we can determine if the sound is normal, and if not, we can help correct it. Thank you again for the review and selecting Friedrich.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
So you're in the market for an air purifier, eh? Well you just found it, my friend. I'm 'that guy' who -- at least once a week -- enjoys the nonstop runny nose, itchy face, and general miserableness. Before this air purifier, I could get levels of "better", but never "great." I've been using this air purifier for a month-ish now and have finally known what it's like to not have allergies! Seriously, no need for a Kleenex yet.

I really can't speak highly enough of this thing. I've never been so excited to have an air purifier in my life because this one actually works. The thing that makes this thing head-and-shoulders above its peers is auto mode and it's ridiculous five stage filter. For the first few days, I didn't even know this was on until I put my hand over the 'vent' to feel the air blowing out. The plasma generator does emit a bit of an electric buzz (think really quiet welder or bug zapper 'tzzzzz', but very, very quiet), but it's easily drowned out by any other noise. Everything about this says that it can only handle like 260 sf, but -- in reality -- it scrubs about a 600 sf area and doesn't really get overworked. 99% of the time, the air monitor is blue (very clean) or greenish-blue (pretty clean). Auto-mode is incredible as well (read below).

For those who would rather read bullets, behold!

* Stylin'! While it's still a giant box, at least this has some style to it. For once, it looks like something that belongs in a living room.

* Quiet. Like REALLY quiet. After a few days of this on, I don't even notice it any more. It can get loud if it needs to clean or if you don't use auto mode and select medium or above on the fan. But why would you?

I am one of those people who meticulously researches every appliance on the market before making a purchase like this.

Basically, I was searching for the highest-quality, heaviest-duty, most powerful and rigorously designed HEPA air purifier for under $500 – determined to find something that would completely eliminate all the nasty, stuffy particles and bacteria I could see floating around my rooms.

Ideally, I was also hoping to find something compact, attractive, and modern to fit my house. I really didn’t like the idea of taking up a lot of space with an ugly, cumbersome, loud appliance.

I spent hours looking at the various models from Honeywell, Blueair, Winix, Holmes, Coway, Fellowes, etc.

After spending many hours searching Amazon, specialist air purifier websites, googleshopper, etc., I finally settled on two units to test and select the best from. Each unit boasted 5-stage filters, excellent reviews on online discussion boards and powerful capacities to filter and purify large spaces.

I wound up ordering this Friedrich AP260 for under $300, as well as another model called the ASEPT LifeCell 1550 which was a little more expensive.

After testing each out for a week there was no competition. The Friedrich worked beautifully, and it was an absolute pleasure breathing in the fresh pristine air from the room in which I had placed it. On top of the excellent performance, the Friedrich had by far the best fit, finish and design of anything I had seen online or in person. The filters and materials are truly high quality, the interface is wonderfully responsive and easy to use, and the design is so sleek and cool, it looks like something from the future.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The "Friedrich AP260 5-Stage Air Purifier" truly is impressive. I find it very attractive, in white, with blue vertical strip lighting on the front left outlining the touch controls. It comes well packaged with filters included and takes but a minute or two to place the filters within the unit, ready for use. And it isn't heavy or obtrusive.

I placed it, inconspicuously, in a large living area alongside a couch, turned it on and listened to its fan at all speeds. It's a bit, but not unusually loud at high, and used in "Auto" (intelligent mode) its been running mostly on "Low" speed and not noticeable, at all.

Aside from its ability to purify the air I like that most of the power cord length can be hidden within the machine, out of sight, it has a hidden carrying handle and a remote control, too.

I've always relied on Friedrich for quality, as I've air conditioners from that company that seem to last forever, however, it should be understood included filters for this air purifier will have to be changed, probably yearly, at an additional cost and I'm sorry to report this unit is, unfortunately, 'made in China'. I'll have to wait a bit before I can report on its longevity, though, which I promise to do if I find that other than satisfactory.
