Design and build quality

While some might consider Blueair Classic 603 air purifier design modern and sleek, it is actually quite conventional looking at certain angles. Carry around the unit is no easy task then again there are 4 casters right at the bottom for easy moving. Made with galvanized steel, it is very durable and can be clean easily unlike most air purifiers that used cheap plastics. Designed to allow a great volume air particles, there are multiple air inlet around the air purifier from front to side. Overall the unit feels solid as you should expect no less from Blueair Classic 603.

Applicable area, airflow, noise level and power input

This is the best segment to show Blueair Classic 603 hepasilent air-purification system capabilities. With its revolutionary, patented 3-stage filters, pollutants such as mold, dust mite, pollen do not stand a chance in surviving Blueair Classic 603 bound environment; It can purify a massive 65 m2 (700ft2) of area, far greater than most air purifiers. At lower fan speed setting (around 32 dB), the enhanced sound filtering system can silent most noise coming out of the air purifier that you could even place it in a bedroom. Power consumption is acceptable, between 35 W minimum to 120 W maximum.

Final thoughts on Blueair Classic 603

By now we should be familiar with Blueair reputable offering and 603 is no exception. With its superior all-rounded performance and good noise filtering (not at the highest setting), no doubt this is another winner in our list. But the real question is among the 3 air purifier: the Blueair 503, 603 and 650E, which air purifier should you go for? Most people would recommend the highest series which is the Blueair 650E if money is not an issue; I will, however recommend to go for air purifier that can provide sufficient applicable area that is within your requirement as there is no point getting a powerful air purifier that you have no use of.

In conclusion......

  • Blueair filter with HEPASilent technology.
  • Advanced ionizer.
  • The strongest air purifying applicable area at 65 m2 (700 ft2).
  • Durable galvanized steel exterior.
  • 4 fan speed mode.
  • Blueair 603 replacement filters are expensive to begin with.
