The exterior of the Holmes Egg HAP600-TU is an excellent addition to your home decor with its smooth egg-shaped housing. At a compact and lightweight dimension (about a weight of an ultrabook), there is no short of places you could place this air purifier even though we will only recommend placing it as close to the intended target as possible (more on this later). The front center blue buttons and black top/ bottom adds nice contrast to the already beautiful air purifier. With a permanent filtration that has zero maintenance cost, Holmes Egg 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 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 (only at low speed) 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 HAP600-TU

The airflow performance for Holmes Egg HAP600-TU is not great, it has below par airflow delivery rate and coverage that is only 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.

Overall Holmes HAP600-TU efficient plus 120 sq. ft. purifying coverage and airflow input/ output is terrific in capturing large airborne pollutants such as dust, hair, pet hair. pit against allergens, irritants, viruses and bacteria, Holmes HAP600-TU combined Permanent HEPA-Type Filtration, 3 fanspeed and 2-stage filtration is at somewhat fine grade in eliminating pet dander, dust mites, pollen, mold and mildew.  On smokes and odors, Holmes HAP600-TU filtration is weak in handling chemicals, odors, cooking smell, fire, VOCs, tobacco smokes, cigarette, vapor, radon and ammonia.
