Customer Reviews of Honeywell 50250 99.97% Pure HEPA Round Air Purifier
I will say these are a little loud, but the air quality is noticeably improved and it's delivered 360 degrees. I'd recommend this product.
it works fine
Does the job well!3/21/2012
My boyfriend has allergies, but I have two cats. The compromise was that I'd buy whatever HEPA filter he thought would work best. This seems to work very well! He hasn't had to much coughing and sneezing (still some, but that's the cats being around and NOT the filter). I do think it's a bit overpriced, but since it's the cheapest I can find it I can't complain to much on that. It was really easy to put together. Also, I did the really slow shipping and it got to our place in 2 days! My only real complaint is that I think it runs loud(even on low setting)and I really dislike the blue light that's on ALL THE TIME! But my boyfriend likes it and, since it is for him, that's what matters!
A dust sucker upper for sure2/27/2012
HOLY COW... I could not believe how horrible my air was and the dust in the room.. When the light said to the clean filter, ..... (I removed the cover which was so easy, screw handle underneath holds the cover on) i found the outer black filter was filled with heavy white stuff... STUFF, i just do not know what else to call it. You use the wand on your vacuum to clean the outer filter. What I saw was as dramatic as the ocean being parted WOW, NOW I must tell you there is a 5 year warranty. My previous lasted 3 yrs I keep this unit full speed, as i do have pets.. and it is sorta loud, but after time, i did not notice.
We purchased two of these. They were very easy to get started. We read directions, plugged them in and immediately felt an improvement in our breathing. We have three inside dogs so need all the help we can get. We have one purifier in the bedroom which helps our sleep and one in our office where we work at the computer. We have plans to purchase a couple more for other areas in the house. I highly suggest the purchase of this machine if you have any breathing problems.
They sent me a 50250-S rather than a 50250-N5/11/2011
I purchased this product because it is advertised as having a vacuum cleanable HEPA filter. When I read the product manual it stated that the filter is not cleanable. I then noticed that instead of receiving a 50250-N, I had the inferior 50250-S model. Hopefully this is a simple shipping error and will be quickly corrected by customer service.
I sure hope people read this reveiw before making a purchase.This is what I found out after receiving my 50250-S , only to see nothing on the box or in the owners manual that said anything about 'Lifetime HEPA' or 'Premamnent HEPA' anywhere!! This is the reply I wrote after receiving an answer to my question concerning Lifetime HEPA filters installed in this unit sold at BUY.com..... Hello again Raquel with Buy.com, So , what I understand from this reply is 'Lifetime' is just a trademark and none of these Honeywell air cleaners has a filter that will last for a lifetime?! What a gimmick to lure consumers into a sale!!! That's why I made the choice to purchase one of these because I am tired of paying $90.00 every year to buy replacements for the Holmes unit I now have. I guess to be required to replace them in 3-5 years is better but, still nowhere close to a lifetime or what the Honeywell website labels as 'Permanent True HEPA filters'. I will keep the unit as the reviews are quite positive in concern to effectiveness of this model.(they offered me a full refund or a small partial credit to my account). You may forward this entire thread to KAZ,Honeywell or whom ever takes customer complaints so they can make appropriate changes in their ads. If they have any conscience that is. At best these filters are merely 'cleanable'. Not lifetime or permanent, by any standards! So to avoid a false advertising lawsuit, they had better consider changing their advertising practices. I will also be placing this correspondence on the BUY.com website in your customer reviews section. Thank you for your timely response.
Best Performance, Good Price.1/4/2011
Although the highest setting is very loud, but it cleans the air very well. The middle setting is for you to leave running when you're not home. The lowest setting is for sleeping, and it's fairly quiet. Thumbs up for this device.
Great Machine little loud1/25/2009
I have the unit in a small bedroom and the air is great but it is a little loud for sleeping with it so close. Otherwise i have noticed a big improvement in the air quality and the level of dust.
