  • An excellent air cleaner at an excellent price
    Reviewed by stevefromtheburbs - December 4, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] As a WTC first responder, with 20 years of respiratory issues since, clean air is very important to me. We have two long haired dogs as well, which only complicates matters. So, that said, I feel like I'm a good candidate to judge air cleaners based on my conditions and living situation. We have a modest townhouse, with 4 adults, and 2 long haired dogs. There is constant movement in the house, in and out, here and there, etc. So dust from outside, dust from inside, and the dog hair/dander is quite a bit and I vacuum often to get it all under control. This air cleaner has some interesting features for the price point. First let me say the filter (of which you need to remove the bag before using) is behind a door that you remove to clean/replace the filter. The door has a little viewing window on it, so you can see the filter from the outside of the door. I vacuum my filter often, with a high power vacuum, to extend the life and usefulness of the filter. This seems to help with air cleaners in general. Air is drawn in, the cylindrical filter does its job and clean air comes out of the top. Pretty straightforward design. The filter is meaty, it isn't some thin piece of junk. It is big, unexpectedly big, and heavy for what it is. That is a good thing because it means it is built to work well and last! The unit itself has a decent control panel to let you select things ike auto-mode, speed override if desired, and a timer function to turn off after a set number of hours. That is your decision on if you want the timer or not. Plus there is a sleep speed setting. Most impressive is the air quality monitor and display. Awesome!. Green for good, yellow for not so good, and red for bad. Plus it has a number for the 2.5 level which is the smaller particles of dust/dirt floating around. The display looks like an OLED; it is sharp and crisp! I've been using this in my kitchen, and it has removed all cooking odors in a short period of time. The CADR rating is impressive, at over 300 with an effective room size of nearly 500 square feet. Bravo, this is a nice first floor unit at a decent price. For those who are Insignia brand fans, like me, you'll realize this meets the expectations of the products you have come to rely on for quality and overall value. Oh yes, sorry, the unit is like 12x12 (width and depth) with a height of 22". That is a nice sized unit without being overly large.

  • Impressed With It
    Reviewed by softwareEngineer - December 6, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] TLDR: An excellent choice for HEPA air purification in a large room. Priced competitively for its performance. Has PM2.5 detection and auto adjusts fan speeds accordingly. Runs quiet at most settings, with the exception of the fast and fastest settings. Provides a nice display to show overall air quality and PM levels. Has child lock for the little ones. It is a tall, yet relatively thin rectangular shaped unit with handles on side for easy transport. Doesn’t have any wifi/smart home capabilities, if that’s important to you. Replacement filters should be readily available thru Best Buy when the unit signals for a filter change. No tools required to replace filter. The overall mechanical design is no different than most other units on the market; air intakes on the lower panels (front and back) and exhaust on the top. The lower 60% of the unit houses the cylindrical air filter, which is a combination of the pre-filter, charcoal filter and HEPA air filter in one package. Nice. No need to manage them separately. With a filter like that, the benefits are the removal of allergen, mold, dust pet dander, smoke and pollen (via HEPA filter) and the removal of odors from chemicals like ammonia, formaldehyde and nicotine (via carbon filter). The pre-filter picks up all the big nasty stuff that you can see with your own eyes. Finally, the upper 40% houses the fan. The control buttons sit atop of the unit and are capacitive touch, meaning there is no mechanical push or click, but just a simple touch much like on your cell phone screen. I like this because it’s easily cleaned with a little solution and won’t ruin the internal electronics. You get fairly simple controls such as an Auto button, timer button, fan speed button, a filter replace reset button, and of course the on/off button. Each press will emit a beep from the unit. You can child lock and unlock the unit by holding the Auto button for more than 3 seconds until the child lock indicator toggles indicator state. To reset the filter replacement light, you need to hold the filter replace button for 5 seconds. This prevents any unintended resets of the filter replacement light. Overall, I’m very happy with the Insignia Large Room Air Purifier. With its performance rated up to 497sq ft, it is a nice complement to my dining room and living room space. I have it running in automatic setting, and with the child lock on (well, because of the kids). For the most part, I will run it like this and go about my daily routine, not having to worry about it. Set it and forget it, right? I only turned up the fan full blast for its initial 24 hour debut, but I will do the same when there is a little smoke coming from the kitchen stove. Otherwise, I enjoy the day knowing my air is being monitored and cleaned.

  • Big and Well Made
    Reviewed by DaveW - December 13, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Insignia NS-APLWH2 is a 497 ft2 HEPA air purifier designed to handle large sized. This is a plug and play device without any apps or device connections needed. Design The design of the unit is pretty nice to be honest. Its big was my first thought when I pulled it out of the box. It clocks in at 25 x 12 x 12 inches and weighs 18lbs. The top of the unit is a slatted surface that allows fresh air to pass through. The front of the body has a nice LED display. The bottom half of the front has a perforation pattern that looks pixelated as you move upwards – gives it a cool and modern look. On either side is a small hand hold for moving the unit around. The backside has a similar pixelated perforation pattern but also functions as the access door to replace the filter. The filter is a cylindrical HEPA filter with activated carbon. Before first use the only thing you really have to do is remove the plastic bag the is around the filter and put it back inside the machine. Close up the hatch after the filter is in and it is ready to power on. The top of the machine has 5 touch sensitive buttons. Power, auto mode, timed mode, fan speed, and filter reset. The auto button also doubles as a child lock if you press and hold it for 3 seconds. The front face of the unit has an admittedly nice looking LED display. The number displayed is the current air particulate reading (PM 2.5 readings in this case). light at the top. This light strips above and below the number indicates indoor air quality. Green – great, yellow – okay, orange – bad, and red – hazardous. My light has been consistently green this entire time. The highest number I saw was in the mid 50’s and that was right after initial startup when it was still clearing itself out a bit. Since then the particulate count has hovered around 2-10 consistently. If I happen to vacuum or leave the door open to the outside I can see the numbers jump up in real time. Care and Maintenance Maintenance of the unit is pretty straightforward. The filter life is rated at 3 months, but that is dependent on your air quality. The filter reset button will flash blue when its time to replace the filter. The filter is available to purchase on Best Buy’s website at the time of this review (Model NS-APFL2), so that’s nice to see. When its time to replace the filter the manual tells you to wipe the inside out with a damp cloth and clean away any trapped dust. Once the filter is replaced you close everything back up and press the filter button for 5s to reset it. Performance and Usage Using the purifier is pretty easy. You can set it to Auto and just walk away if you want to. The unit will run at whatever level is necessary to keep the air particulate count down. You can schedule a timer to run as well if only need it to run for a few hours while you are home, or something. You have options of 1, 2, 4, 8, and 12 hours. Or you can set it to manual and control the fan speed itself. On the highest setting it is really moving some air around. It still doesn’t get very loud, so you can have it right next to your couch while watching TV and it won’t be noticeable. Performance wise it does a really good job of knocking down a lot of floating bits in my air. I have a husky so I am used to seeing floof floating through the air in my house. Since dropping this unit into my living room I have noticed a drop in the amount of floating dog fluff. Time will tell how well it does at keeping dust levels down, but so far it appears to help one of my kids who has seasonal allergies. There was a lot of leaf raking/blowing this last week which usually makes him miserable due to the dust. This year was not as bad. This could be a placebo effect or a real outcome of using the filter. Overall This Insignia unit has a sleek looking design that should look good in most settings. The filtering seems powerful while the fan stays fairly quiet. I’m impressed with it after this first week. It has done a nice job so far.

  • A Noticeable Improvement
    Reviewed by ERN52 - December 2, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Insignia™ - 497 Sq. Ft. HEPA Air Purifier - White The Insignia Large Room Air Purifier is very easy to use. The set up was very easy, just remove plastic from unit, filter and plug. Then remove tape from around the removable door. Plug it in and select the setting you would like and let it do the work. I have it set to Auto and the filtration runs on the lowest setting and is very quiet. If I change the setting to #4 it runs much noisier. The air readings stay in the green and around 8-14 in numbers. The difference in the air quality is noticeable. It seems fresher and not as dry smelling. I would give this unit 5 stars even though the noise is louder on higher settings. I would recommend it to others.

  • Plug and play
    Reviewed by Njmomof3 - December 11, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was expecting a long drawn out process in getting this air purifier up and running, but I quickly found that it's really a plug and play style...super simple. I really don't have any complaints with this purifier. The two main things I need from an air purifier, this one has which are auto adjust and child lock. With the auto adjust it automatically detects the air quality of the room its in and increases/decreases fan speed accordingly. This is helpful that I don't have to remember to turn it on or up, plus I definitely know it's working because it turns on every time I cook on my gas stove. It is absolutely perfect in size for a living room as it is a slender rectangular shape; it's just big enough to know it's making a difference in the air, but not too overwhelming for the room. Plus, as far as good air purifiers go, this one is affordable, requires no tools for filter replacement, and is safe for a house with little kids (child lock works along with all the other features).
