    First, let me say why I bought this over other Air Purifiers: I bought this for my mother (who is terrible with electronics) for allergy season. It has a remote, but if you lose or break the remote, you can still use the buttons on the console. Rabbit Air has a solid reputation for customer service, a 5 year warranty, a 24/7 help line (with a call center staffed with native English speakers).

    Now onto the features.

    Noise: This machine has 5 different Power settings (and two auto settings). The machine is more-or-less whisper quiet in silent mode. I used it in my bedroom a few nights, and I have no problem with the volume in low or silent modes. High and Turbo are really better for cleaning the air if you aren't around. Auto/Pollen (the two sensor modes) generally will keep the device in low or silent, unless you're running it for the first time.

    Effectiveness: Unfortunately, the only other product I have to compare it to is a Honeywell device, but I believe the product works quite well. My mother has been sleeping better, and her bedroom's air smells fresher than it did previously.

    Maintenance: The Purifier comes with one set of filters and a pre-filter. The pre-filter should be washed once every month or two, and the set of filters (must be purchased as a set) should be replaced every year or so. Fortunately, the filters are relatively cheap at ~$80.
    There is a LED that lights up when the filter should be replaced.
    There is also an air-quality sensor that the device uses for the automatic settings which needs to be cleaned with a Q-Tip every month or two.

    Removing the pre-filter and front cover takes about 10 seconds. Replacing the filter set is a little complicated, but straight-forward with included instructions, and should take about 5-10 minutes.

    Size and Appearance: The MinusA2 has a decent footprint. It isn't exactly portable at a little under 20 lbs, but it isn't very cumbersome either. It is about the size of one of a full-sized desktop tower. The air vent is on the top of the unit, and the air intake is all around the front panel of the unit. You can also purchase an optional wall-mount kit. It's a bit deeper than you probably imagine from the picture, but it's still a relatively attractive appliance rather than a box on wheels. The device has a set of blue LEDs while operational. They are less bright than the average cell-phone's screen.

    Overall, I'm very satisfied with the purchase.

    Quiet unit that is easy to use and not too heavy to move from room to room. Unfortunately, the plastic and the HEPA filter off-gas. It makes no sense to me to run a unit that pollutes the air when you are trying to clean the air. The customer service team at Rabbit is fantastic, but they have seriously flawed product.

          Use in master bedroom. Like the quiet sleep mode. The mood light serves well as a night light, if desired. Have not had this unit long enough to judge longevity and other factors which are time dependent.

            I am using it in my bedroom. It is very quiet on low at night. I increase the speed during the day. I'll know more on how well it works when allergy season starts, but I expect it to be much better than previous Oreck units which were returned to Costco.

                    Comments about Rabbit Air MinusA2 Air Purifier (SPA-700A):

                    I am very pleased with the Minus a2. I bought it to help with dust and pollen allergies. Some of the key features I was looking for were quiet, sleek and cleans well at lower speeds as it is in the bedroom, as well as energy efficient, reliable and longer lasting filters. I started by reading a large number of reviews and opinions on various websites and settled on the rabbit air's for all of these reasons. I also like that it has an air quality indicator, though I run it mostly on low. So far it is cleaning well, as a basic test I can shine a flashlight at night and the beam highlights much less dust than before, I don't get as stuffed up, and I like the small amount of white noise.

                    In terms of downsides one is that I have to cover the indicator lights with cardboard at night as I like my room pitch black, there is a night mode in the automatic setting which turns off the air quality indicator at night but I prefer to have the airflow set at a higher level, in the manual mode you cannot turn off the settings indicators and air quality light. I see this as a minor annoyance but suggestion for product improvement. The second downside is cost, I feel like the unit has a lot of great features and the motor technology seems durable and efficient, so I chalk this up to getting what you pay for, also there are brands/units much more expensive than this.

                    Overall I am very happy with my purchase.

It is about the size of one of a full-sized desktop tower. The air vent is on the top of the unit, and the air intake is all around the front panel of the unit. You can also purchase an optional wall-mount kit. It's a bit deeper than you probably imagine from the picture, but it's still a relatively attractive appliance rather than a box on wheels. The device has a set of blue LEDs while operational. They are less bright than the average cell-phone's screen.

                    Overall, I'm very satisfied with the purchase.

                    This has had a great effect on the quality of air throughout my (1 bedroom) apartment. At its highest setting it is quieter than the lowest setting on another cheap air filter this replaced, and it moves quite a bit of air. It's not the cheapest air filter out there, and it would have been out of my range if not for tax refund - but it was money well spent.
