    Filtrete™ Basic Air Filter is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from 3M Changed Quality I have been buying these Basic 3M filters for years and when we built a new home, I continued to use this filter. Recently the look of the filters changed so I knew it had been re-engineered. Then the air returns with the new filters became very noisy and the filters were nearly being sucked into the duct. The cardboard seemed to be flimsy - (didn't take a micrometer to it but wish I had). The new style filters are noticeably smaller in both directions. Next time you re-engineer to cut costs, remember to account for the varying size of the lip on air return duct openings. Not all are 1".

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent filter with 1 flaw Have used these filters for several, several years with excellent filtering results. Have 2 overhead return vents that I change the filters monthly. Now for the flaw...filter is about 1/4 inch short of stated measurement in both length and width. When the unit comes on the filter is sucked up to the metal framework with a loud popping noise.Irritating in the middle of the night when it is quiet!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Merv equivelant. Been searching high and low for a polyester filter that flows as free as possible. Too many people get hung up on what the filter will filter out and forget that a furnace has to breath too. Otherwise the blower motor works too hard and is more apt to burn out as well as the a/c a-coil being more prone to freeze up. Do some internet research. My furnace has a static pressure issue ( more furnaces do than people realize) and wanted something better than the spun fiberglass filters that dont really filter- you can pour salt right thru them. This filter fits the bill... The merv 5 rating (3m equivelant of 100 in their rating system) is the only merv 5 that the big box stores sell in my area. Just wish they would go back to the standard 'boxed' framework that seals so much better. Give them a try and see if you dont get better airflow thru your discharge vents and save on your bill sinc ethe blower dosent have to work so hard.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have a 16 month old baby girl. I have two filters I have to replace on my furnace unit. Since my little girl was born she has only been sick with a cold I think it's been twice. I think it's because of the help the filters play in what they capture and I want to say thank you for helping keep my family happily healthy. Thanks for your product and keep up the good work!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Long time user I have been buying this particle filter for several years and found it adequate for my needs. Recently, not sure exactly when, you changed the quality of the cardboard around the filter and changed the actual measurements to nearly a 1/2 inch smaller in both directions. Replacing my filter it felt as if it could be sucked up into my air ducts. I purchased the next quality that had sturdy cardboard and correct measurements. Lowe's refunded my money. When you do something like this you should warn me your product will no longer serve my purpose so I don't waste time purchasing something inferior.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quality not as good Quality of these filters are poor. I use to buy these and now will not. Seems like everything else quality goes down and prices go up! Please bring back the quality not everyone can afford spending $16 or more for a filter. Thank you.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Filtrete Basic Air Filter is no longer great I've been using 3M Filtrete Basic Air Filters for over 25 years. The ones I just bought appear to be lighter weight, smaller than before, and even the screening filtration materials look different. When I googled "Compare 3M Filtrete Filters", a great 3M resource, the "Basic Air Filter" wasn't even shown. The 8 Filtrete Air Filters shown had MERV Ratings of 6 through 13. The Filtrete Basic Air Filters I just bought showed a MERV rating of 5 on the packaging, a rating below average for most home and business owners. I'll switch to the Filtrete Allergan Air Filters, MERV Rating 11, MPR Rating 1500, about $14.99 but they come on sale in Medford, Oregon about twice a year for $4.00 off.
