3.0 out of 5 stars Acceptable unit, but could be better for the price, 19 Nov. 2013
This review is from: Fellowes Allergy UK Approved AeraMax DX55 Air Purifier with True HEPA Filter (Kitchen & Home)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Effectiveness =

For those who suffer from breathing difficulties and find their sleep disturbed as a result, these air purifiers can be a final resort when no help is found from traditional remedies and cheaper alternatives. However, determining whether an air purifier actually does it's job is more difficult than you might think and I've found it has to be judged over an extended period of time. In the beginning you have to take it on faith that the unit is doing what it's supposed to. But generally with this purifier I think it's safe to say the room it is placed in will feel slightly fresher if nothing more.

For me this unit is on a par in terms of performance (and while it was working) with my previous air purifier- Bionaire Air Purifier Tower.

If you're going to be using an air purifier during the night, just as important as performance is the sound level of the motor. The settings in terms of intensity are quite useful with this machine, allowing you almost to get the best of both worlds, even though the ideal would of course be for it to work to its maximum potential at filtering the air without any or little noise. Even at its lowest setting this unit is not as close to silent as I would like. While I think I will get used to the hum produced at the lowest setting during the night over time, I suspect most people would find the noise too loud unless their breathing difficulties/allergies were severe enough to warrant it.

Durability =This unit certainly appears solid, but with the brand not being one I'm familiar with I probably feel less secure about how lasting it will turn out to be in comparison to my previous purifier, but this will only become clear with time.

Design/aesthetic = In my opinion very little thought has been put into the design element of this unit, not in comparison to so many others on the market that really do attempt (but not always succeed) to create something that is at least somewhat sculptural. But this is perhaps balanced by the dimensions of this purifier, which enable it to be placed pretty much to the wall and hidden from view next to a piece of furniture if required.

Price = Without being able to offer a definitive determination on performance, purely in terms of attractiveness and noise levels, I feel this unit is over-priced and would probably recommend those considering purchasing it to wait until it had dropped to nearer the £100 mark.

Score = 6/10
