Design and build quality

The exterior of the Holmes Egg Air Purifier HAP600-TU is an excellent addition to your home decor with its smooth egg-shaped housing. At a dimension of only 24.1 x 27.4 x 24.1 cm with the weight of only 2.2 kg (about a weight of an ultrabook), there is no short of places you could place this air purifier even though we will recommend it to be place as close to the intended target (more on this later). The front center blue buttons the black top/ bottom adds nice contrast to the already beautiful air purifier. With a permanent filtration that will reduced the maintenance cost, Holmes hepa-type egg air purifier HAP600-TU is pretty much a no frills, hassle-free air purifier.

Airflow performance and applicable area

With a purifying coverage of 11 m<2up>2 or 120 square feet, Holmes egg air purifier HAP600-TU can effectively eliminates 99% of airborne particles as small as 2 microns such as dust, mold, pollen, pet dander and even smoke; providing a sense of relief to the user. It also operates silently throughout the whole process and consumes little energy and that leads us to the down side of the HAP600-TU air purifier.

Final thoughts on Holmes Egg Air Purifier HAP600-TU

The airflow performance for Holmes hepa-type egg air purifier is utterly dreadful, it has poor airflow delivery rate and poor coverage and is deemed useful in close range such as a bedside or office desk purifier. Still, given the sizes of the Holmes egg air purifier and the extremely very affordable price tag, one should not expect anything more in this small bundled unit.

In conclusion......

  • affordable price tag.
  • Optional ionizer.
  • Permanent HEPA filter.
  • Integrated night light.
  • Filter change indicator.
  • 3 years limited warranty.
  • Airflow performance is way below par.
