If you prefer Philips products over Panasonic then the Philips 4025 model is worth a buy.

The sole purpose of an air purifier is to purify the air in its surroundings and the Panasonic F-PBJ30ARD does this job well.

Panasonic PBJ30ARD Air Purifier

Design and Quality

The Panasonic F-PBJ30ARD air purifier looks rather plain with no flashy panels or LEDs, but as explained earlier that is quite obvious for the price tag. The design is compact with the unit occupying only 31.1 x 54 x 21 cm volume. The design is also unique given the fact that the buttons are on the front panel as against the top of the unit. Color options vary on the rim or outer edges of the purifier and include blue, grey and maroon colors. The handle on top doesn’t help to the already plain looks of it. All in all, we would not want to speak more on the topic of aesthetics and would prefer to give it a miss. Reviews

Features

Composite Filter

The Panasonic F-PBJ30ARD removes 99% of micro-organisms and allergens from a room of size 215 sq.ft. We recommend to use the unit in closed rooms with no direct source of pollutants. This would help in quickly achieving a clean atmosphere inside.

The filtration system is a 2-step system as enlisted below-

Super-Alleru Buster

Allergens are effectively filtered out at this stage of purification. Pollen grains, mold spores and fine particles like fiber strands are trapped at this stage. Phenolic polymers encircle the allergens and trap them thus rendering them harmless.

Green Catechin Filter

Most people took a liking for  green tea after watching advertisements wherein its high anti-oxidant properties are highlighted. In Panasonic air purifiers too, green tea has found use not through its anti-oxidant features though. Catechin, a green tea extract, is contained in the filter and removes Formaldehyde. If you have shifted to your new home with fresh coatings of paint and new furniture been placed, then this gas would be present in dangerous quantities. Although the fumes would reduce with time, yet other indispensable sources of it like resins, paints, plastic products, leather products, synthetic fabrics and clothing. Formaldehyde is a carcinogen which means that large and prolonged exposure to it may cause cancer in humans. Formaldehyde is also found in cigarette smoke and in places where gas stoves are used. Sources of Formaldehyde include manufactured furniture like desks, bookshelves, beds, cupboards etc.

Turbo and Sleep Mode

For times when you feel the concentration of pollution is too much to bear, there is a turbo mode to set things right quickly. Within 10 minutes of turning turbo mode on, there are clear signs of majority of the pollution been removed. The Panasonic F-PBJ30ARD air purifier achieves this by letting its fans run at their top speeds. It thus creating powerful suction force around the unit. This is to be bore in mind that the unit ceases to be its quiet self while it is running all cylinders in Turbo mode. For setting it in its most silent state, you can use the Sleep mode feature.
