Compact and slim is probably the most accurate way of describing Oreck ProShield Plus AIR12GU air purifier. Moving Oreck ProShield Plus AIR12GU though is a bit of mixture bag, while it is easy to carry around, the weight is slightly on the heavy side. Partial of the heavyweight is contributed by the sturdy build quality and Truman filters. Usability wise Oreck ProShield Plus AIR12GU is very easy to use with front controls and blue indicator light. Remote control is also an added bonus along with the 3 years warranty.

Applicable area and CADR

Oreck ProShield Plus AIR12GU is powered by a 6-stage Truman Cell filter that would cover most household allergens. While there is no official data on how well Oreck ProShield Plus AIR12GU handles common allergens, our test shows that with the Permanent Truman Cell and Helios Shield filter combination, Oreck ProShield Plus AIR12GU will deliver low airflow distribution at a small applicable area. Finally Oreck ProShield Plus AIR12GU CADR rating is rated at 50 cfm for dust, pollen and smoke.

Final thoughts on Oreck ProShield Plus AIR12GU

Shall we begin with its negative point? Oreck ProShield Plus AIR12GU realistically is a tower based air cleaner that offers below-average airflow performance. In addition to that, the lack of features like timer and Auto mode is also another niggling complains. If you could look pass that, Oreck ProShield Plus AIR12GU is a well-made, permanent air purifier as exactly what it should be.
