Not the biggest and lightest for its class, Honeywell HPA204 True HEPA is essential the white version to Honeywell HPA200. Moving this Honeywell True HEPA Allergen Remover is easy as the body is short but would require both hands as weight already exceeded the 5 kg benchmark. The whole configuration is very Honeywell like with easy tap controls at top and surrounding air vent that includes pre-filter/ HEPA filter below. Handles is located on both sides of the air purifier for easy carrying. Adding the 5 years warranty in the bag, Honeywell HPA204 True HEPA has the classic example of an air purifier looks that emphasis on functionality and practicality.

Airflow performance, CADR and applicable area

Based on the size of Honeywell HPA204 True HEPA, we would not expect anything more than average in its airflow purifying performance. How wrong we were. Honeywell True HEPA Allergen Remover surprise us with its decent 29 m2 (310 sq. ft.) applicable area. Great at covering a wide range of allergens, bacteria, viruses, chemicals and odors. With the 4 speed cleaning mode, Honeywell HPA204 True HEPA CADR is rated at 190 cfm for dust, 180 cfm for pollen and 200 cfm for smoke. No surprise with its power consumption and noise level as it stand at reasonable level.

The strong filtration, good clean air delivery rate, wide applicable area and plenty of practical features to fiddle around. Yes there are far better air purifiers that offer stronger airflow performance, greater filtration system and wider applicable area but for the price you pay, Honeywell HPA204 True HEPA is consider a bargain on our side.
