Most of the time when we get presented with an inexpensive air purifier, they test out to be “cheap and ineffective” and an utter waste of money. Not so with the Hamilton Beach True Air Allergen Reducer, this is an ideal travel or desk companion being the size of a large clock radio. This small air purifier has a couple of things going for it other than its astonishingly low price. Firstly, it has an effective filter while not being pure Hepa passed our efficiency tests with flying colors. Put simply, this little air purifier does a good job at filtering out allergens and manages to be quiet as it goes about its work. And to make matters better for the frugal consumer you can vacuum its filter and prolong its useful life considerably. The filter will not last forever but you should get a plenty of years out of it and given the price, I think that is a very fair deal. Buy one for yourself and as a gift for that allergy sufferer in your family.
