The purifier is quite large, you'll definitely notice its presence in your room, much as you would a new piece of furniture. Setup is simple, you basically just plug it in and turn it on. You can use the credit card-sized remote to choose from three different fan speeds or an "Auto" mode that purports to select the correct fan speed based on current conditions. On my purifier Low is very quiet and could easily be used for sleeping, Medium is audible but not unpleasant (similar to a "white noise" machine), and High is loud. I can't really tolerate High for more than a few minutes.
Overall I am very pleased with the purifier but it does have a few quirks that are not entirely forgivable at this price point.
Firstly, as other reviewers have noted, the control panel / LCD display is very inconvenient. It's located at the bottom of the unit, you have to lean over or even go down on all fours to read it. Given the purifier's design I can understand why it is located where it is, but the panel should be canted out so it can be read and adjusted from a comfortable position.
Secondly, I find the "auto" mode (which is the default when you switch the purifier on) to be essentially useless. "Auto" runs the purifier on High for about five minutes, then drops back to whatever speed the unit feels current conditions merit. Unfortunately it cranks the fan up to High from time to time for no reason I can discern -- High is LOUD. I would greatly prefer that the purifier resume the last speed selected when it is turned on. Though I like the remote, I would probably have been just as well served by a simple speed knob.
I measured the unit's power consumption with a wattmeter (line voltage = 115V) and found: 0W for Off (less than 10mA); 25W for Low; 45W for Medium; and 100W for High.
Recommended if you want to reduce pollen, odors, and other impurities in the air for a good-sized room.
Speaking of blue LED lights why does everyone put a super bright blue LED on everything now. The light on the side of this unit is so bright I could see clearly in the room with the lights off. Luckily the remote is magnetized and I put it over the light.
One of my biggest problems with this unit is that it pulls the air through the unit before it goes through the filter. So this means the inside of this unit and the fan will become very dirty over time.
As others have mentioned the display is all the way at the bottom of this unit and it is a poor quality LCD display so you can not read it from an angle. I have to get down on my knees to read it. How could that have ever made it past R&D is amazing. The only thing I can guess is they never put it on the ground when they were testing it they just used a workbench and for that the display is perfect.
The unit pulls the air in from the bottom and blows out the top, front, and back. I bought this specifically for smoke. Well all this does is just blow the smoke around the room because smoke does not sink to the ground. Most odors are at nose level or at least the ones we smell are. So unless you are lying on the ground all the time it doesn't seem to pull the odors in but just blows them around.
The sensor is a joke. I would smoke right in front of the unit and blow smoke on it and the auto feature would still stay at 1. Other times there would be no one in the house for the full day and we would come home and the thing would be running on full blast and never stopped. I gave up on the auto part after the second week and just leave it on level 2 now.
As far as dust goes I have black side tables and a black desk and I still have just as much dust build up on them now as I did before. I see no improvement in dust removal at all.
If I could get my money back I would. I kept hanging on thinking it was doing something but I was just lying to myself and let the return deadline pass. I can not recommend this to anyone because it just doesn't work as advertised.
