Our Price: $199.99
Quiet, effective, and relatively unobtrusive, this Holmes HEPA air purifier improves the atmosphere of the home by removing 99.97 percent of all airborne particles in the air it filters. It uses four heavy-duty true HEPA filters to do this, drastically reducing pollen, dust, allergens, and irritants in the air. The unit is designed for a 20-by-23-foot room (or up to 460 square feet), and it fits flush against the wall without obstructing operation. With its lighted control panel and well-marked buttons, the purifier is easy to operate. It includes four fan speeds powered by a GE motor and can be shut off without unplugging. For added convenience, the purifier comes with a remote control that operates all functions. Holmes' HEPA filters need replacing approximately twice yearly with typical use, and the procedure is straightforward. All the filters include Microban treatment to guard against the growth of microbial bacteria. Measuring 9-3/4 by 24-1/2 by 19 inches, the unit can be oriented vertically or horizontally. It carries a full five-year warranty. --Emily Bedard

I got it! Last year I ordered this item and it was back ordered for months & months - I finally gave up. This year I order it again and got it within 3 days! One problem, they forgot to put in the remote control but the company is shipping me one off when it comes in stock (2 weeks). I got it in excellent shape and it is quietly humming in my house right at this minute....more info
Where is My Product I ordered this back in the winter of 2004, and kept getting message from Amazon indicating that there is a delay in shipping the product. After 2 delays, I just canceled the order. That is the first time I had a bad experience with Amazon, and I planned to cancel my Amazon-branded Visa card as a protest....more info
don't expect to recieve this item Who ever is selling this can't even seem to come up with the product. I suggest finding someplace else to purchase it. I ordered this in Feburary now its April and they still can't seem to find one to ship. They claim ships in one to two weeks, yeh right. Allergies and other nastys in the air don't wait for these shmos....more info
Excellent air cleaning unit After researching HEPA filters for several weeks, I decided to purchase this one and am very happy I did. In most homes, when you look across the room when sunlight is spanning across it, you can see various little specks of things floating through the air -- specks that enter your eyes and you breathe. After getting this unit, I no longer have the "dirty air" problem.
The unit itself is VERY quiet on the lowest 2 settings (easy to sleep to), the 3rd setting sounds like a fan is blowing high speed -- able to sleep to if you don't mind some white noise. The highest setting is a bit loud, but there is really no reason to have it on that setting, unless you quickly want to purify a room.
If you're debating whether to buy a HEPA purifier -- after you replace your first set of filters and see the filters liberally coated in grime that you would otherwise breathe in, you'll thank yourself. If you're debating whether to buy THIS HEPA purifier -- I have had this one since May 2004 and have just recently replaced the filters. The unit itself still looks and sounds new. I've bought products from Holmes before...and all of their products are still fully functional after several years.
Smell the difference I read about this purifier in Consumer Reports (it was one of the top 3 most highly rated) and have not been disappointed with it. The air in my apartment is noticeably more clear, and the added amount of circulation is really nice. Heat from the heating registers is now more quickly dispersed because of this unit. The remote control, although a nice touch, has to have line-of-sight with the device which is sometimes quite inconvenient. This unit has little lights on the front that tell you the filter status as well. Nice touch. On the highest (of four) settings, it's about as loud as an in-window air conditioner, on the lowest, it's almost inaudible. As for room size ratings, you can get one rated lower/smaller but it will just take a lot longer to filter. They don't stick you on the filters either; they last about 6 months (give or take) and cost about [$$$] total to replace. One of the best purchases I've made this year....more info
