Evaluation

This is such a gorgeous looking air purifier. Large appliances tend to take up space and put restrictions on where to set them up. However, with a refined design down to the finest detail, this air purifier would not affect the ambience of the room. The backside is slanted at a 45 degree angle so that it fits in any corner, achieving the ideal air circulation while maintaining a modest presence. The air filters are accessible from the front panel, making the replacement easy. Such attention to detail makes the product easy to operate on a daily basis. The design is seamless and meticulous in every which way.
