PCO300 Silverscreen Enhanced True HEPA Air Purifier
The PCO300 Silverscreen Enhanced True HEPA Air Purifier from Vornado combines patented titanium dioxide media with UV light to break down and destroy allergens, harmful gases, viruses and bacteria in the air, making it more effective than typical filter media. This includes bacteria and viruses smaller than those that cause the flu, common cold and antibiotic-resistant infections.
About Silvercreen from Vornado
Go Beyond HEPA
If you were told that there is an air purifier that can go beyond the impressive capabilities of True HEPA - destroying and disabling harmful bacteria, viruses, gases and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) - what would you think? No, it’s not magic. It’s Vornado Silverscreen. Silverscreen is the name Vornado uses for their patented technology that destroys and disables contaminants using UV light and TiO2 media. This process is called Photo-Catalytic Oxidation, or PCO. With Silverscreen, Vornado has perfected PCO by creating unmatched performance that also lasts longer than PCO systems today.
In the Box
- 1 Permanent Pre-filter
- 1 True HEPA Filter
- 1 Advanced Carbon Filter

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Oops, second one developed the same problem as the first one--a cycling noise. Called Vornado, they said they will send new one, have no fix for it. I asked what if the third one developed the same problem, she said no guaranty it won't but as long as under warranty, will replace. They don't even want the old one back, just cut off the cord, and prove it with a picture, then depose of it--reason being they do not manufacture the item here and have no way to fix.
I asked for a FAQ on the problem and they did not have any. Note the retailer we purchased from was Hammacher-Schlemer, they had done the first replacement, but since they don't sell this item anymore, they can no longer do an exchange, only a refund.
I took one star off for this. Otherwise, it worked great.
Works well. Had to do an exchange though since the first one developed a problem--suspect it may not have been new--had a problem when first delivered.
I just literally plugged it in about 30 minutes ago so it might take some time before I feel the full effects. However, with just that little bit of time, the air does appear to be less stuffy.It feels quite comfortable in my apartment now. I have not experienced, any sneezing, itchy throat or shortness of breath.
With this Vornado PCO plugged in, I feel like the air is much cleaner and Im able to breathe more freely.In fact, I plan to order another unit for my bedroom. I would definitely recommend this for people who suffer from bad allergies like me. It is a little more expensive but I also have a large honeywell hepa air purfier that I run 24/7. The honeywell helps a little, but the difference between that and the Vornado is not even close. The Vornado is in a whole different class.
The package is the size of a small dehumidifier and is meant to sit in a corner, six inches from each wall. This directs the air-flow most efficiently. The front panel pulls away using magnets and is easily removed or attached. Behind that cover is a Pre-Filter tray that captures the larger particles. Behind that is the HEPA filter which is fairly standard. Behind that is the Carbon Filter tray which is actually not just a carbon filter. It is a strong piece of plastic that contains hundreds of honeycombed like shaped containers of pure tiny charcoal pieces. This takes care of all odors that cannot be caught by the filters.
Above the filters is the most interesting part. There is a UV Bulb that emits light to activate the titanium dioxide coating on the screens (there is a Silverscreen Tray above and below the UV Bulb tray).
In summary, air is pulled in through the sides and first enters the Pre-Filter, then the HEPA filter and finally the Carbon Filter. At the same time, the UV Light Bulb works with the two Silverscreens to cause a chemical reaction (Photo-catalytic Oxidation), which destroys organisms like bacteria, viruses and more. The entire system is non-toxic AND produces no harmful Ozone.
The filters are meant to last and are comparatively priced the same as other air filters. However, the UV Bulb will last 375 days and the Silver Screen trays will last over five years. The Pre-Filter is easily washable. The Carbon filter and HEPA filter should be replaced when the lights on the top of the unit appear. However, these too can be vacuumed (in reverse), if you want to really delay the cost of filter replacement. Usage is the key as to how long your filters last.
The only button you really need to know how to work is the one on top that will set the filter to three power levels. The lowest if barely detectable, the second is mildly noticeable and the third is like ‘white-noise’, which I prefer for sleeping.
There is simply no other home air-filter (here on Amazon) that I have found that is this thorough and priced so affordably.
