Rated 4 out of 5 by MysteryT Too noisey! Cools air well.
Sorry returning. Thank you for the QVC returns policy. Very effective air cooler and feel that it purifies the air too but it's far too noisey. At number 4 the noise level is acceptable but the air cooling function is reduced but if you want it for a small room it would still be effective. Safe to use around young children and pets.

I ordered this primarily for its purification function. I have suffered terribly this summer with allergies & skin irritation, so really wanted to minimise these irritants. I have found it to work really well & have felt much better since using this. I have an android phone & it didn't work, so have had to connect it up to my husband's i-phone to monitor the air quality. Unlike another reviewer, I have seen fluctuations in the air quality & interestingly can often link a decline to a specific event e.g. the use of an aerosol. I have found the night mode to be very quiet. I am also very happy with the fan function & have found it keeps me feeling cool. On a warm day the upstairs in my house is very hot at the end of the day, & whilst the fan won't cool the air per se, it certainly cools me sufficiently to get a good nights sleep.
The desk sized fan is very big & I'm not sure what sized desk the people at Dyson think people have !! I would suggest it is more than big enough in an averaged sized room. I put mine on the floor near my bed & it works well.

The fan is good and effective. Its pleasing to look at, light and easy to use.
I have tested it in a dusty room, with the sun streaming in. I agitated the dust so i could see it and watched the fan blow it to the other side of the room. The lower section does take dust in but the fan is so effective it blows it far enough for the dust sucker not to get it.
The app only works on smart phones. Your Apple iPhone must have minimum OS10 software. It will not work on my iP4 for example. This is crucial info and should be pointed out pre-purchase and yet It is nowhere on Dysons website. Value for money? Jurys out I'm afraid.

I was very wary of this product as it claimed a lot and the high price. However, suffering badly with asthma and hay fever (on occasions requiring hospital treatment) it has been amazing.
Yes it's not silent during the night but it's a gentle humm (like an air unit in a hotel room) and it was a faff to set up the hoop to the main unit as the instructions were very sparse. The wifi was easy to sort and very helpful as I can set the unit on route home from work.
I'm thrilled with the investment, thank you Dyson.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Scylla Not good at the COLD bit
As an air purifier it might be quite good at this function but I've only had it a week so too early to tell. The App might be misleading too as it always says the air quality is good. My gripe is this model is absolutely no use at cooling a room. Just like other fans if there is hot air around this just blows it about. There is no mechanism in it to produce cold air like an AC unit has. So don't buy if you are expecting a dual function machine. Having said that the competition for this machine is similarly priced but it doesn't claim to be a cooler too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by winkfield Does Not work as a Air Purifier
I purchased a Dyson Air Purifier for the reason of helping to clean the air, It is only partly effective when you are cleaning the room the Air Purifier is in or doing any sort of DIY that creates dust this Air Purifier does not capture all dust particles after a short time you can see the dust streaks on the inside of the blade where the air comes out of the product.
Buy a true Air Purifier Instead

I ordered the desk top version which was much bigger than I expected. I have a very hot bedroom, when we have a summer, so bought an air conditioning unit. My downstairs neighbours complained of the noise. The presentation said this was quiet so I thought I would try it. I followed the instructions and had no problem connecting it to the my wifi system - I am in my mid 70's and found it easy. It is hard to describe how much better this cooling system feels. It cools gently and quietly as opposed to normal fans. My medication was changed and I was so ill with the new tablets. It was a relief to go to bed and put the unit on the sleep mode. It was so quiet, cooling and soothing. My cat liked it too - he went to sleep on the bed in front of the fan and normally he is frightened of fans. It is a considered purchase but I feel it is a luxury item, well worth the money. It made me feel good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by susiereview Not as quiet as suggested
I appreciate that it would be really hard to produce an effective fan which provided the velocity for cool air that is quiet when on full but I wanted this for night time when high levels of humidity wake me. It's too loud for this though. If the purifier is left on during night mode that is bearable and a bit like the background hum you would get in a hotel room, but higher than that and it's too noisy. I also have reservations about the app. I had the same problems - called Dyson and spent half an hour on the phone. The operator agreed he couldn't solve it and said I could expect a call back either that evening or the next day - this didn't happen. When I finally managed to get it working after lots of frustration, I don't feel that it gives particular accuracy. It always says air quality is good despite my testing it by spraying cleaners nearby, etc. All in all I think I will be returning as its a very expensive item to keep on these facts alone.
