Connect to Cleaner Air Anytime, AnywhereThe Philips Connected Air Purifier Series 3000i, automatically monitors and purifies the air in your home. Within an hour, 99.9% of bacteria in the air is removed. This can be tracked on the Air Matters app, which provides real-time air quality feedback. As well as this, Air Matters enables you to turn on and monitor your 3000i from wherever you are.

3455067.jpg3455067.jpg3455067.jpg3455067.jpg
Superior PurificationWith cutting edge sensing and purification technology, the Philips Connected Air Purifier Series 3000i is proven to reduce allergens, odours, VOCs and even certain bacteria. The pre-filter and True HEPA filter remove particles. The Active Carbon filter reduces gases and odours.

99.97% FiltrationThe multi-stage filtration system, captures up to 99.97% of particles that pass through the filter. These particles can be as small as 0.3 microns – the size of most common airborne allergens, particles, bacteria and viruses.

Allergen ModeThe 3000i has a unique allergen mode for those who experience sensitivity to pollen, pet hair, and more. The mode means that the 3000i is always on alert, monitoring and reacting to allergen risks, to immediately reduce exposure for those in the room.

Control From AnywhereThe Air Matters app allows you to control the air purifier from anywhere. You can turn it on/off, change speed, set a schedule or see your filter lifetime. Or, use Amazon Alexa, to turn on and adjust with voice control. Download the “Philips Air Purifier” in the Amazon Alexa app to connect your purifier.

3455067.jpg3455067.jpg3455067.jpg3455067.jpg
3 Automatic Modes & 5 Manual ModesThe 3000i has 3 automatic purification settings: pollution mode, allergen mode, and sleep mode. For sleep mode display lights are dimmed, and the fan switches to quietest speed. The 3000i also has 5 manual modes. From an extra-quiet ‘sleep’ mode, to an extra-powerful ‘turbo speed’ mode.

Visualised Air QualityIn real-time, AeraSense shows you the air quality data via a numerical display and a colour ring on the dashboard of the air purifier. The numerical display from 1-12 is an index of the indoor air quality and potential allergen risk level: 1 indicates clean, and 12 indicates polluted. The colour ring provides an additional visual cue, ranging from blue (clean) to red (polluted).

Track Your Air QualityUse the Air Matters app to check both indoor (from the 3000i) and outdoor air quality.

Professional Grade SensorBenchmarked against a professional-grade sensor, Philips AeraSense technology is highly effective in sensing even the slightest change in indoor air conditions. It continuously monitors the air and automatically adjusts the fan speed when a change in particles is detected.

Blue Air 411 is rated for a 15 m² room, this is for 95 m². They are not really comparable.

ElectriQ EAP500HC 7 looks good (dust filter + HEPA + carbon) but is £370 on Amazon. £300 from AppliancesDirect which is better

Vax Pure Air 300 looks like a nice option at £229.99 + a free filter but it is not a 3-stage filter which means not carbon filter or dust filter which extends the life of the HEPA filter.

Thx will look into it

I've just had a look on the Vax site and seen that they have dropped the price down to £229! I paid almost £280 about three weeks ago! 😩

To really see their performance check CADR rating.
Blueair 411 is a small version and not as powerful as this Phillips.

Comparable is Blueair 211, but bear in mind that these are entry lvl in Blueair range.

The Vax 300 did a great job of sucking polluting particles from our test chamber. It managed to capture 93% (Topscore) of the smoke, dust and pollen particles we pumped in. In comparison, the Dyson Pure Cool Link TP02 and the Dyson Pure Cool Link DP01 captured 69% and 66%, respectively

Did they test Blueair 211, I guess it would blow them all away due to cadr rating and Blueair quality.
Dyson products are for show off only...
How big is the hole on the top? Asking for a friend
For those looking for something equal or better than this Philips, you might want to look into Sharp's PlasmaCluster air filter range.

I bought the SHARP KC-860U Plasmacluster Air Purifier a few years back which I have to say brought an immediate and noticeable improvement to my home.

Less dust generally, cleaner air, better atmosphere and you wake up in the morn having had a better sleep.

Yeah, it would not score high as it doesnt have extras, but cleaning performance coupled with recyclable filters, very low electricity usage and fairly quiet operation makes it unbeatable in my books.

Recently bought Honeywell AirGenius 5 Air Purifier from Argos, currently on offer at moment.
The Xiaomi air purifiers are fantastic. I'd not pay too much for one, ultimately they all do the same thing - filter air.

For bedroom or normal size living room buy smaller version. This one is designed for larger space or hallway. Don’t think price will drop below £299 anymore like it has last year.
Cut to the chase:
Do the hepafilters used in any of these filters flter Covid-19 particles?
How long will they do that for?
Considering that an infected person may be shedding millions of particles in a room just by breathing.
(Surgical masks may reduce the droplets when worn by the patient, but they leak round the sides and need to be replaced quite often)
Or if they are in a seperate room, will they reduce the virus particles in an intervening room to say 99.9%.
Do the hepafilters in these machines have an indictor which says 'full'
I think not.
Obviously the maufacturers want to sell as many expensive filters as they can

What's the difference between the 211 and 221? Also for this price does it not have a built in air quality sensor?

The problem with the Vax is not a 3 stage filter and does instead have an ioniser which means it produces a little Ozone. Also I believe ionisers effectively clumps air particles together which makes them heavier and drops to the floor or surfaces which means unless you're constantly hoovering/dusting you're not really getting rid of it?

Seems to be the same, maybe different regions models.

It does not have any sensors unfortunately, Blue is their entry level. If you compare electricity usage between brands, you will see thay Blue series is very green so can run 24/7.

From the report...

You might be wondering if air purifier can protect you from coronavirus/COVID-19. There's currently no scientific evidence to show that an air purifier can do so. To stay safe, follow the latest NHS guidance.

I think that the Vax does have a sensor that informs you when the filter needs changing! I'll have to dig out the instructions

It does have a sensor! But I will be checking the filter to see if it needs changing! The same as I would do when I replace our cars air filters, not sure if the Vax is programmed for "Time" or not...

I don't think washing my hands in soap and water is going to help much in this instance
I would have thought most air purifiers would enthusiatically inform you that their filters needed changing ?
Especially if their filters were £30 or more
