Weight

The lower spec to the highly acclaimed HPA300, At 20.8 x 17.7 x 10.1 in, Honeywell HPA200 is neither the smallest or biggest in its class. Similar story with the weight as 14lb is not heavy but certainly not as portable as other travel size air purifier. Design wide is the exact mirror to HPA300 which is highly functional but lacks the cleanliness and minimalist touch as most modern air purifier. Beside the easy to use top controls, you’ll get standard 4 fanspeed including turbo mode, electronic filter replacement reminders, light dimmer option, 3 pre-set hour timer, AHAM certified, ENERGY STAR certified and 5 years warranty.

Playing second fiddle to HPA300, Honeywell HPA200 purifying coverage is at 310 sq. ft. spread across its 4 fanspeed. Not too bad but you do have to push the air purifier to higher speed for optimal result. In other words, if you plan to use Honeywell HPA200 in large room size. the air purifier would be more than happy do so.

^ Honeywell HPA200 filters/ technologies/ lifespan
Honeywell HPA200 has the same 2-stage filtration setup as HPA300 which by no means is poor. The Carbon pre-filter can simultaneously trap large particles e.g. dust, hair, cigarette smoke and pet odors. For smaller and finer particles, there is the highly reliable HEPA filter that specialize on micron size germ and allergens. The only key differences between Honeywell HPA200 and HPA300 is HPA200 requires only 2 carbon pre-filter rather than the later 3.

Honeywell HPA200 3-stage filtration and purifying applicable area is incredible when go up against allergens, viruses and bacteria. It is truly efficient on large-scale airborne contaminants especially dust. Nevertheless against small, micron size contaminants, Honeywell HPA200 4 speed airflow circulation + is impressive at taking down pollen, mold, mildew, pet dander and dust mites.  On odors, smokes and fumes, Honeywell HPA200 filtration is inferior in addressing VOCs, chemicals, odors, diaper smell, fire, VOCs, vapor, tobacco smokes and cigarette.

Keep it down

Lets cut to the chase, Honeywell HPA200 noise level and power consumption is pretty much industrial standard so expect low noise/ energy consumption at first speed and higher but not outrageously so at turbo speed. Therefore HPA300 would make more sense as its airflow performance is greater. If the output figures is still high to your liking, consider the challenger air purifier below.

^ Honeywell HPA200 replacement filters estimated cost
Hardly any surprise as the smaller configuration with weaker CADR resulted a cheaper price point. While annual filter replacement cost is not the cheapest despite only 2 set of filters (3 if you count the double pre-filter in). It can drop further down if you do not utilize Honeywell HPA200 on a regular basis as the filter lifespan would be extended.
