^ Airmega 300 filters/ lifespan/ price
Utilizing the same filter set as 400S, Airmega 300 is simple yet efficient filtration system to maintain in long-run (refer to annual cost in the later section). As air flows in from both left and right, Airmega 300 2 pre-filter would cover each side of the air intake stopping any large particles such as hair from proceeding. With smaller particles sneaking pass the pre-filter, the always reliable Green True HEPA filter would trap micron size particles including bacteria and viruses at a 99.97% rate. As for smoke and gases ranging from stinky diapers to VOCs, you have the Activated Carbon filter standing by. All that missing from the filtration list is an optional ionizer that is available in most air purifier in this category.

At lowest speed its perfectly fine for night time use or simply set it to Auto/ Sleep mode for autonomous operation.

If you plan to use Airmega 300 24x7 always leave it in cost-saving Smart mode (Auto/ Sleep/ Eco) and the air purifier would accurately determine what is the optimal speed needed.
