Filter Replacement

3M Filtrete FAP-C03-A2 (Lowes)
Well designed
Filter does not last 6 months as advertised on this website. Other than that, this is a great air purifier.

Honeywell InSight HPA5300B
Improves Environment for Sleep
We bought this air purifier to use in our bedroom at night. We believe it allows us to sleep better, reducing nasal congestion and improving breathing. It has a time which we can set for 8 hours at night, and there are plenty of settings to customize functions, including an allergy mode. Noise level...

It really gets the fine dust out of the air.
We recently had a lot of sanding done in our home which created a really fine dust. I would dust daily and still couldn't get rid of it. This air purifier is getting rid of it. So much better in the house. I'm not sure how much it will help my allergies but I'm hoping it will help with that also.

Ease Of Use

3M Filtrete FAP-C03-A2 (Lowes)
Very Good Room Air Purifier
I received this as a free promotional product from 3M. I am currently using this Air Purifier in the lower level of a home that houses a large dog and a wood stove. Very easy to set up and operate. I initially turned it on and within 1 hour of operation the stove and dog smell were gone. I did initi...

Allergy Relief

3M Filtrete FAP-C03-A2 (Lowes)
Could not believe the difference in the room!
We received this as a free product so I didn't expect much. We have 4 dogs and in spite of everything, there is sometimes a pet odor. We placed the unit in our family room and left it running overnight. When I walked in the next morning I was stunned - the air was so fresh and clean smelling and I n...

Effectiveness

3M Filtrete FAP-C03-A2 (Lowes)
Not sure how well it works
The star rating questions don’t apply to this product. I have had the air purifier just over a month. Seems to work pretty well but not sure if I have noticed a difference with my allergies yet. I still have to vacuum every single day. Filter doesn’t have much on it to have been filtering for a mont...

3M Filtrete FAP-C03-A2 (Lowes)
Thick Filter, Nice Size for an Average Room, & Avoids Expensive Niche Brand Filter Systems!
I really like the idea of a normal furnace-filter company making their own room air purifier with super-sized versions of their filters, that they can offer at scale for more economical pricing and availability. And I don't like the idea of being tied to expensive niche brand filters that are very s...

Honeywell InSight HPA5300B
Too loud on lowest fan setting
Has a strange sound that is quite loud on the lowest setting. The lowest settings should be very quiet and this is not. EDIT: Sometimes it just randomly starts making a loud rattling noise and I have to squeeze in the front panel for it to stop. This is unacceptable for a $250 product.
