Honeywell HPA100 VS Levoit LV-H132

Yet another entry level air purifier VS battle with identical offering. Honeywell HPA100 is the lower spec version of the ever-popular Honeywell HPA300 that offers a cheaper price at the cost of the airflow delivery rate. On the other end is the value packed Levoit LV-H132 that we have covered a numerous time here. Both air purifier is exceptional in the value package given True HEPA filter is standard rather than a HEPA-type filter but if you must choose between them, which one would you go for?
