Pros

  • Quiet operation. This unit is compact and is designed to run quietly, which it does satisfactorily.
  • Low one time price and energy consumption. This unit runs on 7.5W with a price tag under $80.

Cons

  • The system produces ozone. As can be read in the fine print this air purifier produces a small amount of ozone. For people with respiratory problems, this may NOT be a good choice – which defeats, for them, the purpose of cleaning their air.
  • Poor reliability. The β€œvalue” price tag is only value if you do not have to replace your unit every 12 months. For a majority of users however, this is the case. A big no-no in our view.
  • Average performance. This purifier only cleans smaller areas. It is only suitable for very small spaces.

Users' feedback

Users quotes on Amazon.comOne thing that the information on this product did not mention is that it produces small amounts of ozone as a by product (within requirements set by UL 867) but ozone is not good for people with respiratory conditions. I bought the unit thinking that it might help me with my COPD, but when I received the unit and read the manual, it stated that "People with respiratory problems or lung disease should consult a physician before using this product". I wish this had been stated in the description of the product on Amazon. That omission of data makes a big difference to people like me."

Users quotes on Amazon.comWorks great in the bedroom. My bedroom is 10x12. I'm really allergic to cats but made a commitment to my buddy 3 years before I developed allergies. With this purifier I can enjoy his presence without dealing with a stuffy nose and watery, itchy eyes. The ion purifier came in a two boxes, one within the other, and a manual to explain operations and maintenance. I included Totoro for a size comparison. The purifier is only good in the one room, it doesn't work in the whole apartment, my apt is ~800 ft. My cat is a light shedder and my apt is practically empty. I included pics of the switch on the bottom that turns the blue light on for looks. The top rectangle above the word "ion" you press to open the cartridge, brush the air filter clean and cleanse the cartridge. The switch on top has 3 options with the far left being "off". The back has a handle to grab and carry but it's recommended you keep an dither hand under the purifier to be careful. The bottom back sucks in the air and the front releases the purifier air. I'm not bothered by the green light at night but I'm also not a light sleeper. I have only 1 cat and no other pets or children."

Conclusion: B-1000 by O-Ion

The O-Ion B-1000 air purifier combines various filtration mechanisms satisfactorily clean the air in small spaces. On the plus side, it is cheap, small and light.

However, let us exercise caution here : its unreliability and the fact that it releases a small quantity of ozone as part of its cleaning process and two major deal-breakers for the Air Geeks team.

Only purchase if your budget is very tight.
