Six-Stage Purification & Deodorization
Stage 1 - Pre-filter (washable and permanent)
The Pre-Filter effectively traps and reduces large sized allergens, dust, and particles.
Stage 2 - Medium Filter
The Medium Filter traps and reduces airborne particles larger than 1 micron in size, such as pollen, mold, and pet dander.
Stage 3 - BioGS HEPA Filter
The BioGS HEPA filter traps airborne particles down to 0.3 microns in size, 99.97% of the time, and reduces common allergens to support optimum filter efficiency and prolong filter life.
Stage 4 - Customized Filter

Stage 5 - Charcoal-Based Activated Carbon Filter
Made of high-grade granular activated carbon, our AC filter is much more effective than typical AC filters, which are coated with a thin layer of activated carbon. Chemicals and common household odors can be effectively reduced.
Stage 6 - Negative Ion Generator
Produces beneficial negative ions to fortify the air you breathe and freshen your indoor environment.

But if you're allergic to something carried on tiny (~ 2 micron) particles, such as cat dander or grass pollen, then by all means consider getting an air filter.
My household owns 2 Rabbit Minus A2's. That's the bottom line, but here's the long explanation:
1) I ask my patients who need a filter, 'what is your budget'? If it's $200, get a Honeywell. They're inexpensive and work well. If it's $500, get a Rabbit (details below). If it's $1,000, consider getting an IQ air, Blue-Air, or Austin. If cost is no object, do what we did with our previous home. I bought 3 hospital grade IQ Airs and put 1 of them inline with each HVAC unit in the house (I know, I know, 3 HVAC's must mean a big house, buy hey, I'm a doctor in practice for 25 years, and besides, the financial guy down the street has a house twice as big). We spent about $12,000 on that upgrade. All so we could have our cake and eat it too (not get rid of the cats). Or is it EAT our cake and have it too? The super-fancy filters lowered the airborne allergens to next-to-nothing, but if my daughter still slept with the cat...
2) Why do we own 2 Rabbits? I really like the idea that Rabbits have 4 separate filters, and you can customize the 4th filter (germ, pet, toxin or odor remover).
3) I am totally inept when it comes to mechanical aptitude, but I am able to order the $85 filter pack once a year and make our Rabbit as good as new. All you have to do is unwrap each filter and keep them in the same order.
4) We have one of them in our bedroom and one in the allergic kid's bedroom.
---Other hints about getting any filter
-High speed equals better filtration, but the 'turbo' speed on Rabbits is pretty loud. Maybe run it on high speed when you're NOT in the room (especially if the cat goes in the room---Whiskers doesn't mind the noise--trust me on that one), and turn it down to low speed when you're in the room.
-Priority #1 is to put one of these in your bedroom--that's where you spend (hopefully) 8 hours a day while you're asleep.
-Don't skimp on replacing those filters each year. A clogged up filter is worthless, at best, and aerosolizing last year's allergens, at worst.
-Clean the pre-filter every month or two.
Hope that helps.
My only complaint is sleep mode. I wish you could deactivate this on auto mode. At night I have to change it to manual mode in order to keep it running on the low setting while I sleep.
Also I would probably pick out one of the decorative front panels. We bought it without one and it looks like a speaker or something on the wall. We'll probably go back and buy a decorative panel so it doesn't look so odd on the wall.
We live in a really heavy juniper area...to which both my spouse and I are quite allergic, and the allergy season for that lasts about 3 months each year. Spouse gets it worse than me, but it's pretty miserable for both of us. Me, I then get the double-whammy of ragweed, chamisa and other late-blooming pollens which are really bad. Both seasons, when my sinuses are screwed up, I'm far more prone to migraine headaches.
We decided to take the plunge and, after a lot of online research, buy two units -- one for each of the rooms in which we spend most of our time each day. (We may yet purchase a third if finances hold up, to cover the middle of our open-plan house.) The air purifiers arrived in original manufacturer boxes, with the 'odor control' filter as the extra optional customized fourth stage filter. Suits us just fine. Boxes were sturdy, with styrofoam inserts to hold the purifiers. There were three separate sets of instructions on how to set up the purifier -- a Quick Start single-pager, a longer user guide, and also a large illustrative sticker on the inside of the front cover. The only real hassle was removing all the plastic on each of the filter stages save the pre-filter. (Note: You GOTTA remove the plastic filter wrappers or the purifier won't work at all!) Took care to note which way was marked 'Front' on each filter component on re-assembly, put the front cover on and set it to running.
We both noticed the purifiers on Auto mode ran at pretty high speed and indicated poor air quality for about the first 10-15 minutes before quieting down. Then, after that, they went to higher speed maybe every 20 minutes or so for perhaps 20-30 seconds tops. Now, after owning them for a while now, we've noticed neither of them is running at higher speed nearly as often. (Although they nearly always react when we walk near them, probably because we're raising dust from the pile carpeting they're on.)
Over the last week, the difference for us has been dramatic. Oh, we still suffer the allergies, but we can easily tell the difference between when we're outside versus inside, in terms of being snuffly and having itchy eyes. Another common effect during heavy pollen season is we accumulate a lot of house-dust, most visible on polished surfaces like my desk. The day after I fired up the Rabbit Air, I dusted my entire home office...and days later, it's basically still mostly dust free.
- Really purifies the air, to a degree cheaper air purifiers and filters just can't match in my experience
- Have noticed general household odor reduction overall, especially after the purifier's been doing its thing after we've been cooking
- Attractive unit design, and I like the idea it can be mounted on a wall; still haven't quite decided whether to do that here though
- Definitely dead silent on the lowest fan speed, just audible on low. Can definitely hear it on medium or high (and of course Turbo), but it's not an unpleasant noise by our standard; certainly no more noisy than when the heat pump central air comes on.
- Rather energy efficient for an air purifier
- Other people have mentioned this: It would be nice to have an automatic / pollen mode that ignores the light levels entirely and just stays active, including with the mood light and air quality sensor light. However, at least in Pollen mode, the unit will change speed based on impurity levels detected, even if the lights won't stay on. (Given pollen is heaviest at dawn and dusk, that's the setting we use on both units.)
- Yeah, it's very pricey for an air purifier. But after the research I did, "You get what you pay for" seemed to be one of the truisms. Only if one jumps to the way, way more expensive (more than a thousand bucks) models were the results and performance noted to be better than the Rabbit Air models. When when I looked at the models priced in the 150-300 range, results and reviews were mixed, but I was concerned at how many were of Chinese manufacture and accompanied by reviews that dinged them for noise, durability, manufacturing quality, and effectiveness. (Also did NOT want to buy any purifier that had filters reported to out-gas on initial use. That would not be acceptable at all.) There's almost no point in buying a sub-hundred dollar purifier...as we've already learned with some of the other cheap ones we've bought over the years and found they didn't really help at all.
- I know some folks have said replacement filters are expensive, and they have a point, but at the same time it's still competitive in pricing versus replacement filters for other makes and models of air purifiers at roughly this purifier-quality level, and these ones are supposed to last about a year. I for one plan to disassemble and clean what I can -- washing the pre-filter and vacuuming the others -- about every 3 months; pre-filter monthly, as recommended, of course. Word is Rabbit Air has promotions every now and then which can reduce the replacement filter prices somewhat. But seriously, when I divided 'time between replacement' by the price of those replacement filters, the Rabbit Air is cheaper than most -- particularly since a lot of those have you replacing every 3 months.
- For example, the Rabbit Air is often compared to Blue Air models. Well, the latter cost more, use way more energy, are much louder, and their filters are significantly more expensive.
Would we buy these again, if given a chance to reconsider? Yes, no question. The only unknown at this moment is just how reliable and durable these air purifiers will be over the long haul. I would definitely revisit this review if something goes wrong and we're not able to resolve it. For now though, we're both enjoy much better sleep, and as I said the allergies aren't gone, seeing as how our house isn't and can't be hermetically sealed -- but the allergies are quite manageable now. Also looking forward to having to do a tad less dusting around here...
