Modern, clean, yet functional, that’s how we would see Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk Fan. A circular tube designed fan air purifier that has hidden blades under the pedestal base making it safe for children use. At a small 16.3 x 24.3 x 8.7 inches in dimension, you can place it on your work desk or table stand without it taking too much space. You do not have to worry that the fan air purifier would tip over as it is rather short and will automatically turn off itself if is indeed tipped over. The iconic bottom base host the air filtration with surrounding air intake and single operational button control.

Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk Air Purifier comes with many advanced features that can only be controlled via the wireless remote control or voice command via Amazon Echo. You can power on/ off the machine, cycle the 10 air speed, turn on/ off oscillation, or set a timer on when to turn off the machine. With intelligent purification, you can activate Auto mode where Dyson Pure Cool Link will automatically monitor, reacts, and purifies the indoor for you. For night use, you can set it to night-time auto mode that dims the LED display and lock the fan speed to the quietest setting. Being a Wi-Fi enabled version, any data received from the Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk Air Purifier will be reported back to Dyson link app for live tracking and advanced scheduling.

Last but not least, Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk Fan purchased from authorized dealers comes with a 2 years warranty that covers parts and labor (extendable to 5 years).

What’s inside count

Here's what makes Dyson Pure Cool Link a great desk fan air purifier. Powered by Dyson patented Air Multiplier technology and 2nd generation 360 degree HEPA filter, the fan + air cleaning output will automatically capture 99.97% of airborne pollutants as small as 0.3 microns. This includes dust, dust mites, mold, pollen, pet dander, bacteria, and viruses that can lead to many respiratory problems. There are also activated carbon granules that help remove smoke, odors, and harmful toxins like VOCs, paint fumes, asbestos, radon, CO, CO2. Everything will be done autonomously, you just need to replace the pricey HEPA filter in time (12 months/ 12 hours of use).

Keep it down

One of the most energy-efficient units from the brand. Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk air purifier has low power usage and noise level regardless of the mode you're running. At most, there is subtle white noise that is ignorable even when you're trying to work or sleep. The built-in sensor and Auto mode does a great job in moderating the speed. We have been running our unit for months with daily 12 hours of runtime and there is no big surge on the electricity bill.

Being a discontinued model in some regions, you can get Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk Air Purifier at a discounted price but stock quantity is limited. There is nothing wrong going with an older model as the technology is still highly reliable and effective. The premium filter options are great as it is compatible with the newer filter set. Given Dyson's good track record, you will not be left hanging without any support.
There is no shortage of options to buy Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk Air Purifier. You can get it at your local retailers, Dyson's website, and any online stores that carry the brand. Amazon is our preferred spot as it offers hassle-free purchases, the lowest price with bundled deals, free shipping with a guaranteed return policy, and refurbished models. We strongly recommend you go with a brand new model instead of a refurbished one as the saving you'll get is minimal given its high demand.

Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk Fan VS the challengers

Blueair Pure Purifying Fan

Blue Pure Purifying Fan

A modern, minimalist fan that uses a single particle filter instead of a HEPA filter to remove dust and pollen.
Lasko 42 Oscillating Tower Fan Ionizer T42950

Lasko 42 Wind Curve Tower Fan Ionizer T42950

A cheaper, conventional designed fan that comes with a filter-free ionizer that pulls dirty particles down from the air. Not as effective as HEPA filtration though.
ULTTY Bladeless Fan Air Purifier R21

ULTTY R21 Bladeless Fan

A good bladeless fan air purifier alternative that uses the trustable HEPA and carbon filtration to remove airborne pollutants.

Final thoughts on Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk Fan

An overwhelming 90% of the buyers that gave 4-5 star ratings have many good things to said about the machine. Most praises are directed towards the build quality where they feel the fan air purifier is very well put together with no loose parts. The strong airflow yet silent operation makes a strong case on why many people would rate it so highly. Many buyers feel their indoor air quality has improved since the inception of Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk. Lastly, value for money is also highly regarded by many people despite the premium price tag. As for cons, there's hardly anything bad on the list other than a few broken packaging or some disputes with the customer service. Nothing substantial on Dyson's reliability and durability.
