Alen Air Purifiers : Review and Test Results

Retail Price: $399

WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW...

OVERVIEW: In our review of Alen Air Purifiers I begin with their most popular, and reasonably priced model, the Alen A350. This is a 4-stage HEPA, carbon, Negative Ions and washable Pre-filter air purifier put to our tests. Nothing unusual here, and nothing special, but solidly made unit priced a bit high (for what you can get) at $399.00 plus shipping. Since it does not have UV, Tio2 or other anti-virus, or germicidal types of filters, it will work for Pollen and Dust but not for mold or immune system protection.

On their site it claims 800 sq. feet but then explains that it functions optimally at 400 square feet. Because of this one area we'll be examining is it's flow rate.

Lifetime Warranty Program

While it has a "Lifetime Warranty" you must participate in their "auto-ship" filter program ($60 every 6 months). My assessment of this is that they are betting that they will make enough money from you in the first 4-5 years (about $600) that they can sustain any problem later on with replacing the unit. Of course most people won't even bother.

Conclusion

When it comes to Alen Air Purifiers their Alen A350 is a bit overpriced at $399 in my opinion, including HEPA replacements at $60 every 6-9 months. Plus their warranty is tied to replacing that filter a lot. My person suggestion is to check out the Alive Air Purifier Review as it has 9 technologies, costs $100 less and the filters are half as much.

You might find one on sale here in which case this would become a reasonable choice.
