Whirlpool AP51030KB Whispure True Hepa Air Purifie...

Pros: This basic air purifier stands out for its quiet operation and ability to clean rooms up to 500 sq. ft. We love that it has four fan speeds and additional sleep and turbo modes for a variety of air cleaning needs.

Cons: The design is not as streamlined as other models we tested, and the filters are more costly than those of similar air purifiers.

Summary: A well-built air purifier, but its filters will end up costing you in the long run. For budget-minded users, the GermGuardian is a better value.
