Weight

There is no doubt Panasonic F-PXJ30/ F-PBJ30 is compact in size. At only 31.1 x 54 x 21 cm, it is ideal for small room/ studio that have very limited space. No built-in casters for this unit although this shouldn’t be any issue with only 4.3 kg in weight. The design is different from the usual Panasonic air purifier series with color categorized buttons and a center luminous color indicator (to display the feedback of air quality) located at the front panel instead of top. Several color options available on the thick rims/ cover with majority of the air purifier exterior would still be in white color. The color thick rims certainly add a fresh, young appeal to the air purifier however, it also makes the unit looked less premium and worst still, cheap in price. Overall the design is plain but acceptable, especially for the price you paid.
