    Filtrete™ Basic Air Filter is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 46.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Design & Useless First of all, the design is poor. The reinforcing supports are on the "upwind side" of the filter, which means the airflow would be trying to pull the filter off the supports. Almost all other manufacturers put the support on the "downwind side". Also, I bought the 12" X 12" filter which is so skimpy on the filtration. The cardboard support frame is tapered and wide so that the filter itself is only 9" X 9". Doing the math, the filter surface area is actually only 2/3 of what it should be and creates a lot of wind noise - trying to draw a lot of air flow through a small area. Plus the filter frame itself is slightyly undersized and allows A LOT of unfiltered air to go around the edges. I had to use cellophane tape to keep the filter in place and prevent air from going around the edges. I''ve seen this same poor design and undersized filter pleats on other 3M filters. They charge way too much for such a poor product. I will no longer use them in my house - they're useless and overpriced.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Element reinforcement is on the wrong side Conventional reinforcements are found on the outgoing side of the filter where any element failures are likely to be held in place by the reinforcement. Filtrete basic has "plastic" reinforcement on the incoming side of the filter element. This may have worked okay in the lab but I am concerned my furnace will pull the paper element right out of the cardboard frame. If I had noticed this in the store I would have bought something else. Although the basic filter is low-cost I still expected it to work without failure for one month. Because the filter has a 3M label on it, I'll give it a trial run in my furnace. I am not comfortable with this product. Even if it works, the look and feel of this filter is testing the limits of flimsy.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Are the arrows reversed? I bought these filters at Lowes looking at them and seeing the air flow arrows they look backwards because the air filter supports are facing intake, never seen that before.This AM WOKE TO A whistling sound coming from intake, not happy. I AM taking them back.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Basic Pleated Filtrete design change question The Air Flow direction has been changed (redesigned maybe) with the a stronger stretched wires first and the pleated material second. In addition, the paper each is reversed. I installed them (I have two AC systems) and could see they worked just fine. My question is was this redesigned to improve performance or was this a mistake in the manufacturing process? Can you explain this new design?

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unhappy with recent change to filters I always purchased the 3 pack Filtrete Basic Air Filters, but recently they changed the wire coils that wrapped throughout the filter with what looks like plastic thin strips that don't look secure. Sure enough, they aren't very sturdy. I had to replace 2 in one month due to bending in the cardboard trim and it caused the air passing through to whistle due to the bent cardboard. I always replaced my filters once a month, now I'm on my third filter within a month and half. Unsatisfied with new filter design. I would recommend the old 3 pack filters, not these with the new design.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and easy! Wasn’t sure about getting this filter but it went on quickly and I could tell a temperature difference in less than an hour! The smart phone reminder is a great idea I signed up right away.
