I've posted in the past about this very model I bought almost 2 years ago now to help the SO with dust and allergies.

So far, seeing the amount of dust it's pulling from the air alone is worth it. Live in an older building and I'm 95% I'm a dusty person naturally :D

I also have an air quality meter which I've shown during wildfire time to drop the PM1/2.5/10 from say 30+ down to 0-1 or so. I'd say it's working pretty dang well. Some things this unit does not do:

- UV germ killin'
- take care of smells unless you buy the extra filters made for that
- wifi/smart/IoT connectivity

For the money, it's been great. I even dust the house less frequently.

Yes, think of it as a running vacuum. It does not replace the need for vacuuming but certainly reduces dust in the air. I rather pay a bit more for wifi/smart features to help save electricity/filter life as it will only come on when needed. I run it just about a few hours a day, I also vacuum every other day too.

What's funny are those amazon negative reviews that say filter life is short, their living space just NASTY.

I have the larger model from the same brand. It has improved/removed my allergies with my dog around. Very thankful a friend suggested the filter.

If you don’t have allergies or respiratory ailments, not necessarily worth it, but they significantly help me. I have brutal allergies and sleep so much better with it. Make sure to keep the door closed though for the room it’s inside of.

I have the same question. I think I'll just buy both, the Levoit for the bedroom and Winix for the living room.

That's interesting. A while ago there was an article on CBC about indoor pollutants. An air expert said that by far the biggest concern indoors is VOCs (cooking being the #1 source) and that the only available filter media that can capture that is carbon, which requires monthly changes. He said all other filters don't do much to improve the actual health of indoor air. But I get that he's just one expert and what you said about the special case in people with allergies. Do you buy into the hypothesis that people with allergies develop them because their indoor environments are too sanitized early on in childhood? This seems to coincide with people who live on farms and other rustic settings (like the Amish) where allergies are very low.

I have one of these in the living room and it has really helped with odours and eliminating dog hairs in the air. I have also gifted these to families. I think for this discounted price, it is a great buy.

Tempting. I have a Taotronics purifier that was a good deal but they've been pulled from Amazon because of compensated reviews. Having a hard time finding filters now.

Are the replacement filter easily purchasable?

compare the cost of replacement filters before purchasing. winix OEM filters from memory seems to be quite costly. many of these units are sold low and they make their money back on the replacement filters
3rd party filters work too.

Night and day difference using this if you have even mild dust allergies or whatnot. Stuffy nose sometimes at night? Turn this on for a few hours in your bedroom and poof.

Thanks, OP. Thumbs up for finding this price, this is the price we paid last year when Levoit was doing a lightning deal on Amazon so I'd say this is a good price.
Change filter indicator turned on after daily use (when sleeping at night) after 7+ months.

The Levoit was the worst performer in the CBC tests (not sure if the same model):

Can't speak to the test or Levoit as a brand, but the model tested there is from a previous generation.

I have a similar model but not from Levoit (I have Renpoh? Anyways another Chinese brand) and I can honestly say this :

- I have seasonal allergy, during allergy season before I bought this air purifier I was waking up twice or 2 times a night from congestion, itchy nose, sneezing, watery eyes
- Since I got this thing, I sleep through the night most of the times
- I forget to turn it on before I sleep every now and then, and I would wake up in the middle of the night for the season reasons
- If I turn on the air purifier and close th door to my bedroom, and come back in the door after 2 hours, there is a very clear difference in air quality outside and inside of the room. The air is obviously 'fresher' inside
