WHIRLPOOL MODEL AVAILABILITY:
The following Whirlpool models are both still available, (as is a third less powerful model, the 250, which uses different sized filters):

Both of these models use the same replacement filters:

CADR RATINGS EXPLAINED:
The Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) comes from measurements conducted by the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM), and is a measure of the amount of particle-free air being delivered into the room. It is the best measure of the true cleaning capacity of the air cleaner. The higher the CADR, the larger the room that can be effectively cleaned. A loose equation is: CADR x 1.5 = sq. ft. room size.
This is important because manufacturers can list any "room size" rating they choose, regardless of CADR rating. Thus you might have one product claiming it can effectively handle a 400 sq. ft. room, while another product says it can handle a 200 sq. ft. room, yet both have the same CADR ratings. So always use CADR ratings rather than room size ratings in making your comparisons.
That said, air cleaners are usually advertised with the room size for which they are recommended. If this accurately matches about 1.Read more ›
When I plugged the unit in, I was very impressed with the volume of air it moved and how quiet it was. If you put this in a small/medium size bedroom, you will do a great job and "cleaning" the air. The controls were laid out well. The brightness on the buttons was not so bright that you would have a night light in your room either. It comes with 4 different speed settings which was a nice feature. All in all it is a very well built and functional unit.
Ultimately I ended up returning the unit. Everything about it was exactly what I wanted except one thing...it acted like a portable space heater! The unit itself does not require very much power, but the heat it generates will cost you more in air conditioning. I put the unit in a 12x12 bedroom and let it run for a couple of hours while I was gone. When I returned home, the bedroom was several degrees hotter than the rest of the house.Read more ›
The controls are simple to use. I find there to be plenty of options for fan speed (noise control). On the lowest setting I can watch TV at normal volume levels with the unit sitting three feet from me. After leaving the room it's easy to ratchet it up to the TURBO mode which I leave it on most of the time when not using the living areas. I appreciate the indicators which tell you when the filter needs replacing, and roughly where it is at in terms of its lifespan (there are five lights to represent HEPA and pre filter status). I also appreciate the 5 year limited warranty that comes with the unit (see brochure for details).
After 2.5 months of use I find that there is a noticeable difference in the quality of the air. It feels fresher, smells cleaner, and I can't see dust flying through the air (which was a usual occurrence before the filter). At first I was hesitant to spend so much on a purifier which required an on-going investment each year; however, after spending 2.5 months with the first unit I'm going to order a 2nd unit for my bedroom. I don't have allergies, but feel that the investment is well worth the reduced dusting, potential health benefits, and quality construction of the unit itself.
UPDATE #1: After nearly 3 years both of my units are still going strong.Read more ›

The filtration is great, but from day 1 it has made an oscillating noise like it's out of balance.
For the first 30 seconds it's quiet, then it stars making the noise;... Read more
