Sleek Swedish styling and HEPASilent technology for quiet operation and maximum airflow make Blueair a very popular choice, especially for bedrooms. Combining ionizer, electrostatic, carbon and HEPA-grade filter technologies with no external ozone, Blueair air purifiers deliver large amounts of clean air quietly. Advances in fan and filter design have dramatically improved efficiency, gaining the Blueair 600 series even better Clean Air Delivery Rates (CADR) than the original Best of Class Blueair 500 series. The 650E requires very little maintenance and changing filters takes only seconds and requires no tools. A perfect fit for both home and office, the Blueair 650E model offers larger square foot coverage than other models, covering an area up to 1,688 square feet. If you like extra perks and ease of operation, the 650E digital model has a remote control, timer, auto-mode, built-in filter-change indicator, and gas and dust sensors.

If you have a smaller-sized room, you may want to consider the Blueair 500 Series for rooms up to 580 sq. ft. or the Blueair 400 Series for rooms up to 365 sq. ft.

Seldom do we rave about a product, especially about air purifiers, which we regard as an area sometimes subject to misrepresentation and exaggeration. So when we tell you that this air purifier is a winner and among the best of its type we have seen anywhere, you can bet that is a very strong endorsement from us.

Pluses:

  • The 650E is the best performing Blueair model with large-area coverage, great filtration and quiet operation. It scored the highest CADR ratings possible: >450 score for pollen, >400 for dust and >450 for smoke
  • Unique filtration technology combines electrostatic and HEPA-like technology for a performance beyond almost every residential HEPA filter
  • Safe use of electrostatic technology without producing ozone or off-gassing
  • Less filter restriction allows the Blueair to push more air volume through its filters than any other top HEPA machine, while operating at a reduced noise level
  • Blueairs high air flow is great for quick cleaning and the lower, almost-silent speeds provide the ideal operation level for continuous day or night use when you are in a room
  • Polypropylene filter material is water-repellent and naturally retards mold and mildew growth, eliminating the need for chemical-based bacteria or mold inhibitors that are used in most residential glass fiber HEPA filters
  • Design is stylish, very efficient and allows for easy filter changes that take less than a minute of your time
  • Energy star qualified and low cost to run using only 35-120 watts depending on the fan speed
  • Filter-change indicators that count down the days over a 6-month period to indicate when it is time to change the filter


Summary:

The Blueair 600 series uses the same filters and filtration technology as Blueair's signature 500 series. However, the 600 series are a slightly larger air purifier and beat the 500 series in performance and room coverage. The 650E ranked in amongst only a few other premium air cleaners with the highest CADR scores possible. This means their cleaning performance for the reduction of particles, like dust, pollen and smoke, was fast and very efficient. Based on their CADR scores, the Blueair 600 series can clean a room up to 1,688 sq. ft. Finally, they can actually cover a large room with surprisingly-quiet operation, considering how much air they are moving. In our opinion, speed 1 is truly whisper quiet, speed 2 is moderately quiet and speed 3 is not exactly what we would consider quiet, but it produces much less noise than the majority of other air cleaners on their highest speed.

Blueair uses unique filtration technology to achieve its high level of air cleaning. Combining a HEPA-type filter with carbon and electrostatic technology, Blueair claims to have the ability to capture 99.97% of airborne particles down to 0.1 micron. During our testing, we were impressed to see a 95.5% reduction in particles on the first air pass, which is very good. Although Blueair uses high-quality filters, their efficiency performance slowly decreases over time, so it is important to change them as recommended for best performance. (Only true HEPA material filters increase in efficiency performance with use.)

The Blueair 600 series uses a combination of 3 filters made of polypropylene and are enhanced with activated carbon. They come in two varieties, HEPASilent particle and smoke and odor filters, which contain only a small amount of carbon for light gas and odor control, and SmokeStop filters which contain 5.3 lbs. of carbon for more-effective chemical, VOC and odor reduction. It is nice that either filter can be used with the unit. This gives the option to purchase the replacement filter that best fits your filtration needs. Blueair recommends replacing the filters every 6 months and will extend a lifetime warranty to those who follow this schedule. With Blueair's premium-priced filters, this means annual replacement costs of $150 – $300 depending on which filters are used. We feel Blueair should have included a pre-filter in their filtration design, which would have extended the lifespan of the filters and reduced the cost of annual maintenance.

The 650E is simple to operate with its remote control. Manually operating the 650E's electronic controls can be awkward because of where they are located, so don't lose the remote. Changing the filters requires no tools and takes only a minute. It is as easy as removing the top panel, pulling out the filters located on the top, left, and right side, and replacing them with the new ones. To help keep track of filter life, Blueair provides filter-life monitors—the 650E has a built-in filter-life monitor that is based on actual run time for more-accurate filter-life tracking.

Overall we are very impressed with the 650E and gave it a 4.5 star 'very good plus' rating. It stands out as one of the few air purifiers available on the market that actually covers a large-sized room, and with surprisingly-quiet operation at that. This makes it an ideal choice for a large bedroom, though some do complain the blue power-on light is bright and bothersome at night, but others like that it creates a faint night light effect. Since the 650E is a premium air cleaner, it is a bit of an investment and the replacement filters are not cheap, but with Blueair you get what you pay for in quality, performance and peace of mind.
