Makes the room's air noticeably clearer and helps me breathe
By Will the Traveler

About Me Value Oriented
Comments about Vornado AC1003843 Air Cleaner:
I own a dog, and have an allergy to her dander, so I suffer breathing problems when the carpets aren't completely clean. This causes several problems, most of all trouble sleeping. Several years ago, I owned a different brand's air purifier and it helped a great deal; it was lost in a move, so I was eager to try this one. The purifier helped from the very first night we plugged it in: the air felt lighter and less stuffy, and I could breathe with more ease. I actually sleep better with this purifier, which is huge because not much else has helped.The purifier does a consistently good job of clearing the dog's dander and other particulates from the air. It also continues to do its job very quickly after turning it on, as with that first night of use. I have only been turning it on in the evenings, and it's already helping.I have not been using the purifier continuously because I don't want to replace the filter too often. The previous purifier I used required regular cleaning (every 2-3 days in the summer). All told, the work and materials use probably even out between the filters, but I don't like having to remember to order replacements, and I'm reluctant to subscribe to the replacement plan they offer.In the short time I've been using it, this purifier has made a positive change in my quality of life, and I'd recommend it to others who have trouble breathing clearly in their own homes. It has helped with my pet allergy, and I've been sleeping with clearer sinuses and greater ease.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Sleek and effective
from San Francisco, CA
About Me Quality Oriented
My room can get pretty musty but I just put this in the corner-- super easy to use and no set up needed at all -- and on high mode, my large room feels much fresher within 15 minutes. The one downside to the Vornado is that it is very loud. High mode sounds like a blow dryer, low mode is definitely still a very noticeable hum.
from Williamson ny
I use the product in the living room where we spend most of our time.The air quality seems to have improved a lot since this product was recieved.Our allergies are not as bad and the air seems clearer.I will definitely buy another one
from Chicago, IL
We keep the air purifier running at almost all times. It has 3 different speeds, none of which are very loud. The lowest setting is very quiet and perfect for nighttime operation in our room. We have another air purifier that we use in our baby's room that is much louder and also functions as a white noise machine. Again, the AC 350 is relatively quiet and wouldn't be ideal for a white noise machine, if that's what you're looking for.The only downside is a blue light that is on whenever the machine is running, which can be annoying at night.
Effective air cleaner
from Shenandoah Valley VA
I was surprised by how effective this air purifier is, especially when running on high. Within minutes I can tell a difference in the air in the room in which it's running. I live in the country and there's a lot of pollen, a lot of dust and a smoker in the house. The unit is a bit loud on high but not obnoxiously so and no more than any other air purifier on high. On low and medium settings it's very quiet. For effectiveness, this compares very well to the Winex air purifier I have running in an adjacent room. It is missing one feature the Winex has, however, and that is an automatic sensor. This sensor adjusts the settings whenever any dust, pollen or other pollutants are sensed. Otherwise, the Vornado does everything I expect a good air purifier to do.
Great addition for a healthy lifestyle
By Triplet Mom
from Ithaca, NY
Newsweek magazine featured an article in June 2016 that noted that indoor air pollution is a much bigger public health problem than outdoor air pollution, even though most people are not aware of it. The article drove home the importance of using an air purifier at home. While I am always trying to keep our family healthy in any way I can and make improvements to our lifestyle, this article underscored the importance of using air purifiers even if you do not have acute respiratory problems in your family.Now some thoughts about the product itself.Pros:- The air purifier seems to be well made and sturdy, giving the impression of a quality product. I really like that it has a HEPA filter which is essential if you want to improve the air in your household. - When you operate it for a while the air in the room smells somewhat different so it definitely works.- It has three different power settings. When you use the lowest one, you can have the machine run over night in your bedroom. The noise it makes is somewhat similar to white noise machines for babies.Cons:- The highest power setting is pretty loud. It doesn't really disturb me when I am running it throughout the day in a room where no one is present, but it likely will be bothersome if you are in the same room or if you tried to sleep while the machine is at the highest setting.I will keep using the air purifier at a regular basis. Initially, I was just going to use it at night in our bedroom and purify the air occasionally during the daytime in our children's bedroom. However, after reading the Newsweek report I have started purifying the air in our entire house with the machine. I just carry it from room to room and let it run for an hour or two. I don't feel like I have to do each room every day, but I will use the air purifier with the intention of improving the air quality in the entire house. Since we have a big house I may end up purchasing one or two additional purifiers.
Great product! Would recommend it to anyone!
I have used this product for 2 weeks straight now and I've seen an improvement in the puffiness in my eyes in the morning. I would wake up with my allergies bothering me and have puffy eyes. I have noticed an improvement with the way I look and feel in the morning. The sound is very quiet and relaxing. I thought I would not be able to sleep with it on but it makes me feel more relaxed. We had another unit similar to this but not this brand running a month ago and it was a lot louder. I do not have pets or smoke in the place but I think it would definitely help with these items. Overall, I give this product 5 stars!
Vornado is a step up for me
from Birmingham, AL
So far, I would say that other than being bulky and loud, the Vornado air purifier is great. I have not had it long enough to really note any substantial improvement on my allergies, but it's a great asset to my room. Next up is locating filters though. Many times these filter purifiers quit making the filters that fit them or they get really hard to locate.
Compact but strong.
from Lowell, MA
Great for a small to medium sized bedroom. The fan is a little loud even on low, but it's great for white noise. After just an hour the room smelled cleaner without the tinge of ozone some air purifiers have. My only two complaints are that the plastic feels a little cheaper and that the blue power light is very bright.

I had to try this out in my closet right away, because that closet can stink pretty bad. I put this in the doorway of the walk-in for about a half hour and it cleared out the bad smell. I love all that this is meant to do and I love the way that it circulates the air in a room. I am so excited for all that this can do and I love all that it has done for me so far.
