For anyone who wants an air purifier...

Disregard the price since it's American... More like $50 CAD.

I wouldn't bother with 3rd party sellers. Over-inflated prices and then they show a discount.

LoL that's a very powerful one. Would probably cost 500$ for the equivalent in-store.

I don't like how Walmart makes it difficult to identify that it's not Walmart selling it. At least Amazon shows "sold by" etc. on the search page without needing to click through to each individual product.

You can always filter by seller on the left side.

I did try this DIY and it was definitely not a success story ! I bought a square fan and a filter and followed instructions as per video. The fan's motor just died within 2 days.
From my own experience, you need a fairly good quality fan or it won't be able to sustain the extra stress caused by the filter.
Since I've purchased real HEPA air purifiers and the performance is steady, reliable and honestly it looks much better.
Just for reference, this is the fan I used for this DIY: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00HQ9 ... UTF8&psc=1
Not recommended if you want to try the DIY :-(

yeah, gonna have to down-vote, not sold or fulfilled by Walmart, returns will probably be a b!tch if anything, and the first purifier is made by that great American brand "Generic" Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes , the same "manufacturer" of the USB key that was floating around here on RFD a few weeks back with "Virtual" storage, which got down-voted into OBLIVION!

I've had two going in my house since Mid August without any issues. I used the Home Hardware brand Classic box fan .

I also have a Walmart brand one that is probably identical to that Sunbeam one that you have posted that spent all spring and summer in our bedroom window getting the occasional rain shower and also falls out of the window every week or two and is still going.

I think you just got a dud of a fan!

Real ones are so much better looking though! But damn those filters are expensive!

Well I bought one. I dont feel like ever paying for the $50 replacement filters for the germ guardian I have(and I read they purposely made it so it doesnt work with third party filters)

Yes, probably ! Could also be the filtre. Can't remember the filter brand but could be a Garrison from Canadian Tire.
Still, I'm pretty impress that yours are going strong and steady !

Forgot to mention another DIY Air Purifier I'm using 24/7 since 2-3 years. I'm using an old Bionaire BAP 540 (http://www.allergytech.com/bionaire_bap540.htm) found in the garbage. It works with a small turbine instead of a fan. Filters for this AP were selling at the time for ± $100, which were much too expensive in my opinion. This is a weird filtre (https://www.amazon.ca/BAP540-Bionaire-C ... B0009GZJO2) but I kept the frame, removed the HEPA filter which was glued into place and every 3-4 month, using either a Garrison or 3M filtre that I cut in half, I tape (using duck tape) the new filtre to the frame. If needed, there's enough room to add a charcoal filtre (didn't use these one but just to show as an exemple: https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/bionaire-o ... 0196977429).
It's not perfectly sealed as the OEM because of the pleated filter but it does catch a lot of dust and dog hair and the motor is not heating. The look is not that bad since the DIY is hidden inside the AP. It's quite effective in the dogs' room.
