Honeywell 16200 HEPA-Type Tabletop Air Purifier

Rating: 3 out of 5
  • Currently 3.0/5.0

Going in, I knew that theHoneywell 16200 HEPA-Type Tabletop Air Purifier was rated for small rooms. At the time, I was living in a small 4-room apartment so I thought this compact, attractive air purifier would do the trick at least for my bedroom. My apartment was in an old building and there was a lot of dust everywhere, so I felt like I had to do something.

I honestly didn't really notice the difference when I used this Honeywell unit. Sure, I could pop it open and look at the filter to see all the dust it had accumulated, but that was about it. That being said, it really did a good job of pulling in a lot of dust if the dirty filter was any indication. I also had a small dog in my apartment, so it did pull in some of his dander as well - though I never had any issues with that per se.

The real downside to this air purifier - and I've heard others complain about this as well - is the prohibitive cost of the filters. This unit cost me $40, and the replacement filters cost me $30! That's 3/4 the price of the unit. The manual tells you to change the filter every 30-90 days, but trust me it's a lot closer to 30 than 90. So you're basically looking at another $30 monthly bill to add to the mountain of bills you pay every month. For me this was a deal breaker. I bought a few replacement filters before I made up my mind that I wasn't seeing any results and spending $30 a pop for replacement filters was just killing me. So soon enough I packed up the purifier and put it in the closet.
