Pros Excellent air cleaning performance, quiet operation, average lifetime costGood air cleaning performance, seperate air quality meter, quietGood air cleaning performance, very quiet, simple to useQuiet, low operating costsGood air cleaning performance, quiet operation
Cons Expensive up front costExpensive upfront cost, no CADR ratingSomewhat expensive filtersSomewhat weakLifetime cost similar to better performing models
Bottom Line High end performance with an average lifetime cost make this a great choice for almost anyoneEffective for those looking for relief from common airborne allergensGood air cleaning and very quiet operation at a relatively affordably priceLow price and silent operation can't completely make up for the relative lack of air cleaning performanceA good performer, but but still can’t match other models that cost the same to buy and operate
