I use mine in the living room and family room and my bedroom
I am purchasing another for daughters bedroom. We have cats and these definitely make a difference in the quality of the air we breathe, and the air is fresher. Recommend this product.
If you hear static when you first turn it on, it is collecting dust particles from the air.

Have 2, both are faulty and have stopped working!Ordered the first one online, worked 42 days exactly. Asked for a replacement, received quickly but that unit stopped working in 18 days exactly. Both have the same non-functioning problem. The ionizer works well for a short while but then completely stops running even when setup, operated, and cleaned according to manufacturer directions. Made of really cheap materials and workmanship. Disgusted I spent $35! Most certainly garbage and I won't buy anything else made by Bell&Howell!

I purchased two of this item in February 2012 & a year later something happened to one of the plugs, the purifier itself still works. I called the "customer service" line at bell & howell three different times & left my name & call back number to order a replacement plug, I NEVER received a call back. Some "customer service"! I personally will never buy anything by this company EVER again1

    I bought this about six weeks ago for my bedroom and after a month it began making noices and vibrating on my dresser where I had placed it. I thought it needed to be cleaned but after cleaning it it still made the noice so can only use it on the low speed.

            I got this air purifier because I have read that negative ions energize and lift mood. I do notice a difference when I turn it on.

            I also liked the reasonable price and the fact that you can wash the filter instead of having to buy new ones.

                Comments about Bell & Howell Ionic Whisper, Air Purifier and Ionizer, 1 ea:

                This product is a bit disappointing. Online, it looks like a well-made air cleaner that you could use on your desk -- sort of a minature version of the large ionizers that have been around a few years. But it's not ... it's a flimsy, cheaply made item that really doesn't look good or serve any purpose. It's more of a "toy version" than a "miniature version." In my opinion, it's absurd to imagine someone thought it should sell for [$]. At half price, it's overpriced. Bell & Howell used to be a trusted brand, but they really sold out on this one. The item belongs in a 99-cent type store.
