This is awesome! This is like a “Mini Me” version to the Pure Morning Air APH260. It’s got everything that the APH260 has minus the UV light packed in a smaller and sleeker more compact design. This is perfect for those who do not like the size, or price of the APH260. Or for those who may live in a smaller more limited space like a small dorm room, small studio apartment or smaller sized home. This air purifier can still easily treat a space up to 315 sq. ft or the size of a master bedroom sized room in no time! Smells like fresh clean mountain air but inside your home! Sometimes even better than the air outside! This air purifier is similar to an ozone generator. Once you have smelled an ozone treated room you will never forget what ozone smells like. It’s the same with a great activated carbon HEPA air purifier. Once you smell, or really breathe awesome activated carbon HEPA cleaned air, you’re not going to want gross untreated air in your room/home ever again! This air purifier has a new rubber grip bottom. Which is genius! It’s perfect and ready for hard wood, tile or hard floors. Not to make any unwanted noises from the vibrations off an uneven hard floor! I really like the cool handle at the back of the unit that is easy to grab and carry with one hand too! It’s super light and can be carried by any person. I took pictures of both the APH260 and this new APH230C side by side for comparison. Even though the measurements of both purifiers are not that widely different. You can still tell this purifier is more compact and streamlined to better fit and blend into smaller spaces. This air purifier has a totes new awesome child lock button! That when pressed renders all buttons useless against your own little “mini-me’s” from playing magical buttons driving you crazy all day! I love this! The air vent is much larger than the APH260, spanning across almost the entire top surface allowing more air to pass through. This may be one of the reasons why this air purifier is quieter. In general, this units fan is lower in sound than the APH260. It’s hard to describe but it has a more of a low bass/baritone deeper tone that’s very soothing, even at a higher fan speed. We sleep with ours on the medium fan setting with no disruptions at all. The filter is wider with a cool honeycomb design containing the activated carbon chunks that you can actually see! This is the first time ever that I have been able to see the carbon inside an activated carbon filter! This air purifier has a true HEPA filter. That has a pre filter to catch larger particles like pet hair and dander. Then onto the true HEPA to catch those smaller grosser airborne particles like dust (dead skin cells!), dirt, mold spores, pollen, viruses (that attach to dust), litter dust if you have cats and more! And finally, the activated carbon, the good stuff! That further removes odors like smoke odors, people odors and VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) like hazardous gases or paint odors, then finally pumps out yummy cleaned fresh mountain air! This air purifier really is perfect for any kind of person. If you just want truly fresher cleaned air inside your space/home to breathe. Or if you own several pets or live with a smoker. This is perfect if you suffer from mild to severe allergies. Or if you have any kind of auto immune or health issues that requires truly cleaned air for better health like me. Having an already immunocompromised system, I need my space and air to be the cleanest possible! Because let’s face it. Even the most expensive and fancy of house/apartment A/C filters can’t cut it. They may promise the removal of mold spores, pet odors, smoke odors and allergies defense. But in reality, they do not. Try a test and you will see. Wait two days after doing a thorough dusting and cleaning of your space/home and installing a new A/C filter. Then, what can you already see on all of your hard surfaces when you look up close? Dust! Or more closely, dead skin cells (ahh!), pollen, mold spores, soil and who knows what else! That is what’s circulating in the air in your home and what you’re breathing! This HEPA air purifier truly does what expensive A/C filters promises and more. Your rooms/homes air will actually be cleaned and will always smell like fresh mountain air! (Not just only on the day that you add new A/C filter.) And truly at a more affordable rate. The replacement filter for this HEPA air purifier is only $25, every six months. Not bad at all. If you have been curious or unsure about getting an activated carbon HEPA air purifier. Just ask yourself. How much is cleaner air and better health worth to you? Thanks Airthereal for another awesome product were addicted to!
I like it. I set it up as per instructions and it works just fine as expected.
I am a thorough and thoughtful shopper, comparing features, design and pricing. I finally decided on this unit and am very glad I did because it appears to be a quality product. It is quiet and yet it moves a large volume of air. The HEPA filter is large and thick with several layers. It takes air in through the large front area and disperses clean air through the top of unit. The warranty inside the user manual states it is a 4 year warranty and if you register within 30 days they will include an extra year and that makes it a 5 year warranty. I really feel that this is the best deal so I am buying a second unit today.
I love the modern styling, most especially the timer feature and that there is just one easy step for filter installation and replacement. The unit is quiet when turned on.
