Cons

Not Ture-HEPA filter

No CADR rating

Poor air change per hour

Produces ozone, but ionizer can be turned off

Can’t turn off ionizer.

Can’t reset filter reminder before it has accumulated all 5 LED “bars.” Annoying if you want to clean the filter before reminder tells you to.

 

The UV indicator is way
too bright

The plastic smell when using it the first time. I recommend to turn it on highest speed with UV-C light turned on for 48 hours.

Ionizer produces ozone, but you can turn it off

Could be higher air flow and more fan speeds.

UV sterilizer may produce a chemical smell. But you can turn it off.

Not Ture-HEPA filter

Poor air change per hour

Conclusions, recommendations

Note: Though Clean Air Deliver Ratings (CADR) can be found for a large number of favorite brands, many of the most well-respected companies in the air purification field do not give CADRs to their purifier. This should in no way bias potential customers against them.
