Summary: We have 3 cats and 2 long-haired dogs. To say we have pet hair and dander would be an understatement. After using this for a month or so, when the filter needed to be changed, we were truly horrified at the amount of "stuff" it had captured. The good news is that it really does do the job. We use it on the low or medium setting. High is too noisy.
Summary: I've had this thing a week so far and it seems to have immediately helped my husband's seasonal asthma problem, particularly at night. He was having difficulties breathing and would wake up in the middle of the night having an asthma attack. He's been breathing easier since I got our air purifier and I'm very happy about that. The rest of the year, his asthma is not ordinarily an issue. This thing is HUGE though. I have a good spot for it, luckily.
Choose this air cleaner (or another Honeywell HEPA machine) if you want long-term, proven, effectiveness.

Summary: SUMMARY: I've had Honeywell HEPA air cleaners for over 20 years because of allergies. Overall, their machines are better than other brands, do what they say, last, and require little maintenance over time. I do not have any problems with level of white noise, and am glad that it has a strong motor to do its job! PROS: 1. I've never had a problem with Honeywell air cleaners in the past. I've probably owned 5.
Worth every penny does the job and makes house so much cleaner

Summary: Does the words "Absolutely Awesome" ring a bell? I put this unit to the test! my house is very dusty, so dusty after one hour of dusting the surface has dust back on it and you can see dust in the sunlight. But after one day of using this unit no dust on the surfaces after dusting and no dust in the air it will do large rooms and the three settings "Turbo" is loud but great if your leaving a room for a bit "Medium -Day setting" is quieter you won't notice it while...
Summary: We bought this to filter the smoke from my husband's den, but it doesn't work to clear the smoke fast enough. It will help, but not quick enough for my allergy. We are going to keep it because it does help with the smell afterwards, if you leave it on long enough. It is rather loud and probably expensive to leave on all the time.
Summary: I bought this because I can't sleep at night without the "white noise" of a fan. Also I am a smoker so I thought why not kill 2 birds with 1 stone. People complain that it's loud on high and you'll need to turn up the tv...well they are telling the truth cuz it is a little loud when on high but you have to expect a fan to make some sound if it's to be powerful enough to clean a reasonable large sq ft area don't you ?
Summary: this device is used on a daily basis and was easy to put together. testing it out was also simple and all i have done so far is turn it on and it takes care of itself. will have to replace filter in a while, but all is well with product.
Summary: After reading that others had successfully used this purifier in a home with pets, plus many other positive reviews, I bought one. I have 2 dogs and 4 cats. When the sun shown into the house early in the morning I used to see a lot of airborne matter (hair, dust, etc.). Now I don't see any. I have to vacuum pet hair from around the pre-filter at least once a week. But that is very much preferable to breathing this stuff and having it on furniture, etc.
