Design and build quality

Not the best looking design available in the market, Holmes HAP756-U exterior feels dated and sadly plasticky as well. At 54.4 x 56.9 x 26.4 cm in dimension, Holmes HAP756-U is rather light at only 3.58 kg (including filters). Great as floor or desktop air purifier. Buttons with digital screen are located at the covers of the air purifier in between its depth. The mono-tone digital screen displays the fan speed, and timer clearly, but it could do better with a more informative color screen. Another attribute of Holmes HAP756-U air purifier is the flexibility to display vertically or horizontally without affecting airflow performance; not quite useful in our book as the air purifier shaped rather boxy anyway. Overall the plastic housing of Holmes HAP756 might feel less premium, expect no less from its build quality.

Airflow performance and applicable area

Depending on how you define large rooms, at 32 m2 (340 sq. ft.), we will recommend user to use it in a medium sized rooms for maximum optimization. Holmes HAP756-U CADR (clean air delivery rate) is fairly good though, at 270 cfm for dust, pollen and smoke.

Priced at $105 – 114.99, Holmes HAP726 U is very well-priced for its segment but unfortunately it is also one of those air purifier that does not strike people as an option when purchasing an air purifier.
