Took an apartment in San Francisco (600 sq ft) for a year, but when opened windows, an incredible amount of lint would enter . . had to spend 2+ hours/week , several times a week, vacuuming and dusting . . ended up with chronic sinus infections. First went to local major appliance retailer and purchased one of those upright tower air purifier . . complete waste, as it was totally ineffective. Subscribed to Consumer Reports, found this one to be the top rated. Found Sylvane had competitive price, plus free 2nd day shipping. Sylvane also offered an optional additional filter replacement kit . . great idea! . . bought it also (so have filters for two years). The previous upright tower model only had two HEPPA filters, each about 4"x6" and a small fan. . completely useless! The Whirlpool model has a HUGE HEPPA filter (aprox 19"x16") . . no wonder it is so effective. Also has huge squirrel cage fan (4 speeds: low, medium, high, turbo), plus a 'sleep mode' (very quiet), plus two separate filter monitors (one for the pre-filter and one for the HEPPA filter) which let you know when the filters need replacement. This is clearly a quality product. (and, btw, I have had no issues with noise from the fan). In use, I found this air purifier exceeded my expectations: an amazing difference! I would estimate dust and lint reduction greater than 90%. Also, no more sinus problems. Just wish I had purchased this a long time ago. This product is easily recommended without reservations. If you are serious about getting the dust/lint out of the air, don't waste your money on the small upright tower models, get this one . . I have no regrets.

The Whirlpool seems to work well, but it was too noisy for me. I live in a very quiet area with no kids or pets and I am sensitive to noise. I tried to leave the air purifier running 24/7, but I had to turn it off often due to the noise. I had it in my living room about 10 feet away from the main seating area. I would leave it running all night and it did not interfere with my sleep, but I would wake up hearing it and wondering what I left running. My bedroom is in a loft above the living room so I was at least 30 feet away from it. I tried running it constantly for several days but I could not get used to it.

If you are not noise sensitive, I think it is a good product. I returned it and bought the Blue Air 503. On the second to lowest setting the blue air is still quieter than the Whirlpool. However, the whirlpool has a lot more air flow. There is a stiff breeze from the Whirlpool. It vibrated constantly even on the lowest setting. I called Sylvane support to make sure it was not broken, but I guess that is what it does. The Whirlpool is also half full of Styrofoam in the fan area. Sort of odd, but I was told that is how it is supposed to be. On the lowest setting the Blu Air is nearly silent. I leave it running on the second to lowest level and the noise does not bother me at all. On the higher levels it is pretty loud. I think you would only want to run it on these levels for short periods when you were not near it.

Looking at the CADR and consumer report ratings, the blue air is supposed to do as good of a job as the Whirlpool or better (depending on the setting). However, it is more expensive and uglier. Prior to purchasing the Blue Air I tried to find a db sound comparison but could not find the Whirlpool rating.

Overall, if you don't mind some noise the Whirlpool is a good choice. It seems to work well and I would have liked to keep it. If you need an air purifier to be silent or nearly silent choose the Blue Air 503.

              Comments about Whirlpool Whispure 510 Air Purifier (AP51030K):

              Good price and may buy another one for other areas of house. The circular fan very slightly wobbles off of perfect center tracking about 1/8" on all speeds so I called Whirlpool and they said it was an acceptable amount so I am keeping it. I'd prefer the 'change filter' to work on amount of dirt in the filter rather than how many hours the unit has been running. I plan on doing a visual inspection also when deciding if it's time to replace it as my house ducts have just been professionally cleaned and windows are kept closed due to TX humidity and pollen.

                  Had in room with person who was ill, ran on lowest speed. Made air clean and pure and it removed odors from the air. Moves a lot of air even on low speed and at higher speeds can handle large rooms. Looking forward to see if it cuts down on the dust in our house this summer.

                        Couldn't be happier! It was recommended to me - I have about a 1,000 sf house so am thinking about buying a 2nd one just so I don't have to move it from room to room - although it is light and easy to move! But if I could leave them in place, run them on Turbo for a few hours a day, and then on sleep at night - I think my investment was well worth it! Now, I have only had it about a month, so I can't honestly answer the question about longevity. I am anticipating that it will run without problems for many years!
                        Thank you for such a great product, service, and shipping just as stated.
