      Comments about Airpura R600 Air Purifier:

      We have been using our R600 for about a month now and the air quality in our bedroom is noticeably cleaner. We bought the R600 for a new house to remove chemicals from paint etc. and I notice when waking up that my throat is no longer sore and I'm no longer stuffed up like before we had the purifier. I chose the R600 because it offers individual filters so the carbon filter can be changed before the longer life HEPA filter.

      On high the filter is loud but we keep it on about 65% at night and it actually helps us sleep by creating white noise. We turn it down when watching TV and set it to high when we are out of the house so the noise is not an issue.

      Comments about Airpura R600 Air Purifier:

      I got my Airpura R600 about five months ago and have used it 24 hours a day since then. Overall, I think it's a great machine that effectively and quietly purifies the air in my bedroom and keeps my dust mite allergies at bay. It definitely keeps the air smelling clean and fresh, though it does seem to emit a slight odor; maybe that's from the heavy charcoal filter, I'm not sure. As one of the only filters on the market with a variable fan speed control, it also doubles as the perfect white noise machine! The unit is sturdy and well-made. It's not the most attractive purifier out there but it's relatively unobtrusive, being perfectly cylindrical and covered in a plain, perforated metal shell. It is painted in a high-gloss finish, though I would have preferred a more matte finish. However, I got the cream color, which doesn't draw too much attention to itself, so I'm okay with it. One thing I really appreciate about the R600 is the quietness of its motor and fan, which is just a gentle hum and whir unless you turn it up past half way, in which case it becomes more like a powerful box fan on high. The purified air is directed out in all directions from near the top of the machine, which prevents the drafts that plague purifiers with unidirectional fan outlets. I really like the fact that the HEPA filter lasts up to 5 years and the prefilter (which is just behind the outer screen of the unit) can be easily cleaned each month with a the vacuum cleaner and an upholstery brush attachment. If you look at the long-term ownership cost of this unit, it actually costs less than a lot of purifiers that sell for half its price, making it a great value. One feature I could do without is the ridiculously bright green indicator light next to the control knob on the front of the machine. In my opinion, it's way too bright for nighttime use in a bedroom, but a piece of electrical tape took care of that problem right away. Overall, the Airpura R600 is not sexy, but it's a darn good air purifier with quiet operation, metal construction, and one of the best real-world filtration rates in the industry (trust me, I spent weeks online reading about ALL the popular purifiers), all for a lot less than that big square guy that gets so much attention. I highly recommend it.

        Comments about Airpura R600 Air Purifier:

        I love this air purifier. I also have an Austin Healthmate (which is good too), but I like the Airpura better. It is quieter & does a better job at taking odors out of the air. I like the fact that you can adjust the fan speed by turning the knob, rather than the typical presets: low, medium, & high. This way I can control how strong/noisy the machine is. I think it's perfect for the bedroom because it's very quiet. You can easily turn it up when you leave the room without that loud blasting fan noise (unless you turn it up to max). I keep it running 24 hrs/day on a low setting.

        Solid unit, could use some sound insulation

        from USA

        Comments about Airpura R600 Air Purifier:

        I just bought the R600 in black from Sylvane. no shipping or tax (Michigan).

        This is a solidly built purifier. It's not super quiet on the low setting, but quiet enough to keep in the other room. The air coming out smells really fresh. Must be all the activated carbon washing the air. On high it really shoots out some air. I like the simplicity of this machine. It's really well built, there's no vibration at any speed. The castors are really nice - I can move it around on my low pile carpet. Not much difference in noise between the low and medium setting, so I keep it around the medium setting most of the time.

        With the lights out, I shined a flashlight next to where the air draws into the side, and I could see tiny dust particles getting sucked into the perforated metal. My apartment is filled with tiny dust particles, which I'm guessing is cat dander but don't really know. Before buying the purifier, I made a point of vacuuming out my heat vents, getting a good furnace filter, and cleaning in general. I also put in vent filters for the 5 air vents in my apt. For 6 years in my apt I never payed attention to the furnace filter, but the ones they had been putting in were undersized and cheap as they get. Dust and stuff from my cat has been shooting through the air for years and lately (last year or so) I've had allergies and headaches, pressure behind my eyes. I never had allergies in my life (41 now).

        Anyway.... short of cleaning out the ducts, I've done everything I can, including buying a Miele hepa vacuum. I'll up date as many months go by - been only 4 days so far and I feel better but too soon to tell if I've fixed the issue.

        It's a solid, powerful, large machine. The air definitely feels fresher. For my 700 sq ft apt it's pretty sufficient I think. I am however thinking about getting the Winix 9500 for my bedroom, thinking it will be a better white noise machine. Reviews talk about how the winix is quiet it is on low. I did have a Rabbit Air BioGS for awhile but it had a pitchy, undulating noise on all settings that I couldn't get used to. The R600 has a nice solid hum. You can hear the motor but it's not too loud and you can also hear the air rushing out.

        The Amazon product description says "near silent operation" on low. Wrong, guys. It's a low hum but not near silent. If you put it in another room from where you are, then yes, near silent. But if it's right next to you, no way it's near silent. Ideally I'd just like to hear the rushing air and nothing else, but with a huge HEPA filter and 18 pds of carbon, I can see how it needs a decent sized motor to draw the air through it. Also if you listen close a few feet from the unit there is a slight buzzing noise coming from the on/off switch. I'm told a power bar might eliminate it. I'm used to it now though and don't notice. Like anything, you notice all the subtleties at first, and then it begins to all blend together as other ambient sounds come and go from around the apt.

        Lastly, I'm told there is an optional accessory called a neg-air collar (comes in all three colors) that wraps around the top of the unit, acting as a sound surpressor. The air is directed out through a tubular port, instead of coming out from all around the top. I'm told a new batch is on order.

        I'm liking this machine more each day.

        Must say cust service was great. Emailed Airpura directly inquiring about the sound issue and they took the time to answer with detailed explanations about product development, etc. Will be looking into the neg-air collar. Sound insulation is what this machine could benefit from. It's a 4 right now, and a little quieter and it gets a 5 star
        Power consumption seems normal for such a capable machine. Will check my electric bill next month.
