Purchased for our workout room that also doubles as a guest room. This cleans to room quietly and quickly of odors following a workout. Good item for price. While I haven't opened up the unit yet, the info booklet says there is a filter. So, hopefully the 'filter-less' feature on the details is correct.

A Germaphobe's Dream! We Call Ours the "Cootie Killer"
We received this product as part of our wedding registry. I was excited because I usually catch every cold and flu that comes around. My husband had a very nasty cold so I plugged the light in next to his recliner. I never caught the bug! Months later I had a hacking cough that I knew would gross-out my co-workers. I plugged the light in on my desk at work and no one ever caught my germs. My co-workers also seemed please at my intention to save them from germs. It is very quiet and makes a pretty night light.We use the Germ light in our finished-in basement to combat stale odor and the threat of invisible mold. We are the owners of 2 stinky hound dogs and couldn't be happier about our decision to register for our "Nuclear Weapon" cootie killer!
my husband and i bought this product hoping it would work but not excpecting any miracles. we live in an old home that tends to smell musty no matter what and we also have a dog that doesn't help. i feel like the air is so much cleaner and when i walk in it smells so fresh without using candles or sprays. its light weight so i can move it from room to room and it isn't big. i feel like the air is so much better for my nine month old to breathe and it is very much worth the price!
From the day my daughter was born, this unit has been plugged into the wall between her diaper pail and crib. Not only did it keep any/all odors contained and undetectable, she did not get sick once her whole first year! The very slight humming "white noise" also did a great job of calming her down for bedtime. Love this thing!
I purchased two of these today in store. They really do work. One is placed in my basement where the cat litter box is located and the other in the living room where my dog sleeps. There is no dog smell in the living room at all and the basement smells much better. Great product, but you can definitely hear it running.
I have tried several different air purifiers and this one is the most for the money. Plus it is by far the quietest even on the highest setting. I have one in each of our bedrooms and it has made a difference. Especially in my kids rooms. Plus, it is small enough to pack with you on trips.
I travel 8 months out of the year for work, and I bought this - skeptically - to take with me when I'm traveling for work.
I have to say, I'm extremely impressed. It's small enough to fit in my suitcase, it's very very quiet with the exception of a small rattling sound on high - but it's not bad enough to bother me, and probably a result of being thrown around airplane baggage claims.
I suffer from serious allergies, this is the first thing I unpack when I check into a hotel. I can tell a difference. If you suffer from allergies, this is a must-have.
I have a small house with 3 rooms that I wanted to get air purifiers for. I chose the AC4010 since the floor standing models would've been overkill for each room. I bought one unit to try out first and it seems to work well so far. There's no quantitative way to evaluate it air "purifying" ability, but I do notice the air isn't as stale.
That said, other reviews I've read indicate that the machine is loud, which I tend to agree with based on the first unit that I bought. We actually didn't mind because the kids sleep with humidifiers on for the white noise. However, the fan on this is uneven, so rather than hearing a steady hum, it sounds a little choppy. I bought a second unit for another room and when I plugged it in, I thought it was DOA because I couldn't hear the fan on the low setting. The first one is definitely going back.
Overall, this looks like it's a good unit and I'll eventually buy a 3rd for the last room. The only other downside is that you can't replace the UV bulb.
