Alen A350 Air Purifier Review and Test

Retail Price: $399

WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW...

OVERVIEW: I like my Alen A350 Air Purifier, I just don't like the cost of filters and the Warranty policy. It's a four stage machine with HEPA, carbon, Negative Ionization with a washable Pre-filter. It's solidly made and should be for the price of $399.00 plus shipping. Since it does not include any virus or germ protection (like UV) it will work for Allergens (dust, pollen) but not on mold or immune system threats. However Alen has created another model alen a375uv which is identical to this that adds UV and Tio2 for several hundred dollars more.

On their site they claim that the Alen a350 can cover 800 sq. feet but then say that it functions optimally at 400 square feet. This shows the kind of flexibility manufacturers have for square footage, or maybe I should say for marketing. Because of 10 technologies and the hundreds of things in the air from particles to gases it's all open to debate.

Alen's Lifetime Warranty Program

While the Alen model claims a "Lifetime Warranty" it requires you to participate in an "auto-ship" filter program which will cost you $60 every 6 months ($120/Year). My take on this is that they are gambling that they'll make enough profit from you in the first 3 years (about $400) that they can more than cover any problem later on with replacing the unit. Of course most people won't even bother, and it's win-win for them, lose-lose for you either way. Clever.
