"I love this air purifier. It gets rid of smells of food and gathers dust very nicely. I haven't used sleep mode, only turbo. I love the white noise of turbo noise and it sounds very relaxing to me," another wrote. "I was watching a Youtube video that said most air purifiers only work most efficiently on the highest setting. I've experienced the best results this way. I haven't experienced more expensive air purifiers but as somebody who has allergies, sensitives and asthma, I've noticed that this does an adequate job of remove dust from the air and a good reduction of dust in my room."
Although more than 85 per cent of TaoTronic's Air Purifier reviews are five stars, some customers have complained about the filter design. Instead of a reusable filter, the unit features a disposable filter; replacement filters can be purchased on Amazon for $36.
"I have trouble sleeping due to my asthma, but this filter made a huge difference within one hour of letting it run in my room," one shopper wrote. "The design is great, the sleep mode is virtually noiseless and the blue light is really nice, the option of turning the light off is a welcome bonus. My only issue is that the filter is disposable but that is it considering the quality of it all. I would recommend this filter to anyone who needs some help sleeping due to dust or other airborne contaminants."
