It's been about 4 days of using this Purifier and I'm already convinced this was a good buy. I've been struggling with some respiratory problems for the past year now and I've bought a few Purifiers to help get clean air in my home, but every purchase was medicore to say the least.

Filter Replacement

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...

EXCELLENT! Works as it should
I’ve had this air purifier for 9 months in my living room. I have a couple of cats and a dog and I live in the desert which is notoriously dusty. I vacuum the pre filter once every week or two. Dust is noticeably reduced on surfaces as are my allergy symptoms when I’m home. I clean my litter boxes e...

Allergy Relief

Honeywell InSight HPA5300B
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.

Noise Level

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.

Quality. You can turn off plasmawave.
The media could not be loaded. This is a well-built unit. I had a honeywell circular unit for years, then replaced it with another a few years back. It eventually died, and had been making some noises, but it worked for me. I recently bought a honeywell tower, but it started making noises after a we...
