Weight
4.5 kg (9.9 lb)

With the width of 33.3 cm, height of 51 cm and depth of 18.6 cm, Philips AC4025/00 size certainly fits into the small category. At 4.5 kg, it is light and portable making the lack of casters justifiable as you could easily move the unit with just one hand. Standard to all Philips air purifier series, the circle indicator is located at top left corner with 4 buttons located at the border of the circle indicator. The unit looks stylish with the white color and thick green rim combination however it does give a cheap low-end unit feel.

Below are the 3 low-end units with affordable pricing from your comparison.

ModelDimension (W x H x D)Weight
Hitachi EP-A300040 x 42.4 x 13.3 cm4 kg
Philips AC4025/0033.3 x 51 x 18.6 cm4.5 kg
Panasonic F-PXJ30/ F-PBJ3031.1 x 54 x 21 cm4.3 kg

Similar to the rest of Philips air purifier series, AC4025/00 comes with 3-step light indicators that will display in blue when the air is clean, purple when the air is average and red when the air is dirty. Adjustable airflow volume with 3 selectable fan speeds setting. 3 preset timers that can be selected to automatically switch off the unit. Advanced filtration system that includes a pre-filter, HEPA filter and deodorizing filter that can effectively eliminate dusts, molds, pollen, pet dander and odors. When in sleep mode, AC4025/00 will automatically dim the light and operates in a very quiet mode. Healthy air protect alert will remind you up front to replace the filter when it is dirty. Built-in smart air quality sensor to measures and controls the indoor air quality.

Applicable area, airflow, noise level and power input

Nothing spectacular should be expected since it’s a budget air purifier. The applicable area is probably the strongest point of Philips AC4025/00 at 30 m2. Airflow is at an average of 127 m³/h. Noise level is at 36 dB minimum and 54 dB maximum. Power input is standard across its series at 30 W average.

Philips AC4025/00127 m³/h

Final thoughts

There is no doubt that Philips air purifier AC4025/00 is perfectly built for small places like bedroom that does not need a humidifier. Based on the current market price, Philips AC4025/00 is the most expensive air purifier among the 3. It does have it strong point though with the widest applicable (coverage) area in purifying and 2 individual separate filters (Hitachi EP-A3000 only has one). However, since pricing is always a big factor for this segment, I would recommend to go for the cheapest unit you can find or simply just top-up for a bigger, stronger unit.
