Design and build quality

Not the most inspiring or eye-catching design, Surround Air Intelli-Pro Air Purifier is sized at 61 x 34.3 x 25.4 cm (24 x 13.5 x 10 in) with the weight of 6.8 kg (15 lbs). It might not have the standard box design, the dull surface of Intelli-Pro is incomparable to the more recent air purifiers that has a clean glossy surface. Buttons and indicator is placed at front which is also uninspiring design, the upside though is the inner 7-stage purification system that will provide sufficient coverage against all types of pollutants including dust, mold, pollen, pet dander, smoke and odor. Overall Surround Air Intelli-Pro air purifier is just at the borderline of its design, usability and build quality.

Airflow performance and applicable area

The 7 advanced air-cleaning purification together with brushless-DC motor does an amazing job in handling household pollutants typically dust-type allergens. The amazing 60 m2 (650 sq. ft.) is capable for covering large rooms, living hall, kitchen and meeting room but note that the airflow delivery rate is not as consistent or efficient as the specification suggested. Still, most household pollutants will not be an issue with this Surround Air Intelli-Pro.

Final thoughts on Surround Air Intelli-Pro Air Purifier

Frankly speaking, we are not a big fan of the Photocatalytic Oxidation (TiO2) Filter and Germicidal UV Lamp as its efficiency is limited and debatable. If you discount the 2 filtration, you will be left with the 5-stage filtration that does a modest job in handling common airborne pollutants and odors. There are some that reported a poor build quality on its air purifier, our works just fine although we only have it for a short period. The starting price of the air purifier is considerable low, if you don’t mind the cons that we mentioned, Surround Air Intelli-Pro air purifier should provide an adequate cover.

In conclusion......

  • Stand-alone HEPA filter and Activated Carbon Filter.
  • 7-stage filtration system.
  • Wide applicable area.
  • Built-in multiple sensor.
  • Low-cost replacement filter and UV lamp.
  • Filtration strength is not as desirable as on paper especially on smaller particles.Tedious cleaning the washable dust collector plates.
  • The combination of Photocatalytic Oxidation (TiO2) Filter and UV light is not as effective as it seems particularly on odors.
