Just changed hotels and was happy to see a fancy Sharp AP in the room until I opened to check the state of the filter. The pre-filter is filthy and the actual filter not much better. Thanks to all the info I learned from this thread or I wouldn't even have checked the filter lol
Prefilter no issue lah, big particles. It's like your aircon filter. Just wash it in the toilet, 20 seconds job nia.

The good thing is that HEPA filtration does not drop in efficiency when it clogs up, not supposed to be, on paper. It does reduce in airflow though. Electrostatic filtration starts out very high when clean but drops in efficiency as it collects dust. Airflow maintains.

SO which part are you in? Shanghai is borderline red, Beijing has 蓝天!

You can cover the cost of your stay by cleaning up their filters!

I bought XM2 and shipped by 65DG via sea ship, it's $184 each nett after shopback. Only draw back is longer waiting time, expect 2-3 weeks.

Shopback has some offers at the moment, think can reduce even more.

Wonder why they just bought, used 2 days and sell? Too much money to throw?

maybe misconception of how an air purifier works, dont laugh but there are people who mix up air purifier and humidifier.

or maybe not suitable for bedroom, didnt research before buying or didnt expect it to be too loud for light sleepers.

some just buy for the hype.
some thinks it extends their life immediately after buying.
many many more reasons.

stand around and listen to how promoters try to sell these things. u get hear funny stuff.

Ok, that is a legit reason.

Actually it'd be too loud for normal sleepers. You can turn it down, but then it'd depend on how many ACH/Air Change Per Hour you need.
After all, a 99 dollar Sharp A28 is also pretty silent (38dB) in medium (120 m3/hr) @ 2m away and damn super silent @ low speeds....and even more compact than the XM2.

The Sharp A28 is actually sufficient for BTO bedrooms, those are about 11 sqm. With cabinets and stuff in the room, it's cool. Still get 5 ACH.


AX40 would be the one that's too loud for some of those ultra light sleepers.

You never know... From some of the stories shared in part 1 of the thread I think, one possibility is maybe buy already go back, kenna scolded by elderly parents or unappreciative spouse for wasting money on this kinda 'bo liao' appliance. Maybe they refuse to use, no choice but to get rid of it.
