Cons

I am not 100% sure does ionizer produce ozone, but you can just keep it turned off.

Have to choose between filters. Can’t combine them together.

Wall kit should be purchased separately. It cost around $20

No programmable timer

815 sq ft works well for normal residential use. If needed for allergy sufferer use, recommended is 408 sq ft

Note: Though Clean Air Deliver Ratings (CADR) can be found for a large number of favorite brands, many of the most well-respected companies in the air purification field do not give CADRs to their purifier. This should in no way bias potential customers against them.
