Anyone have any experience with used Air Purifiers? Do they lose effectiveness over time?

I'm thinking of buying a Honeywell Air Purifier for my new apartment, they are expensive, but I can find a great, used one on Craigslist for pretty cheap...

There are some little things (forget what they are called) but they burn out and get weaker if it has ion output. With time all electronic devices start to die. I would not get a used one because it could carry bedbugs/roaches easily. They like electronic devices. Overstock has some that are under/around 100$

Plus they have a "protection plan" for all electronics. And a guide on finding the right one:

Houseplants also clean the air. (scent wise, not allergy wise)
