Filtrete™ Tower Room Air Purifier - Large Room, 290 sq. ft., FAP-T02-F1 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 179.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great filter for living space I use this guy in the living room primarily. It really helps get any lingering funky smells (dog, garbage etc) out of the air. I like that it has a timer so I can set it at night without it running all night. Also it’s pretty quiet even on the first and second settings. Quiet and getting rid of smells makes this a keeper. I received this as a promotional item.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great when it works but it didn't last I'm actually on my second unit. The first one had a bearing go bad and started making whining and then scrapping noises. Fortunately, it was in warranty so 3M sent another one which unfortunately, lasted a little more than a year so no warranty this time now that is making noise again. I'm buying another air purifier but it will not be a Filtrete product this time. A shame because it works so well when it works.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad bearings The aesthetics and airflow of the unit were great. But within a month of purchase, noticed a bit of bearing whine, which is now noticeable even at low speeds and absolutely screams at higher speeds. All attempts to get access to the bearings to figure out how to lubricate them have failed. Short of disassembling the entire unit, there just isn't a good way in. And of course, I misplaced the receipt so I can't claim a warranty replacement. At this point, it's probably going to be a complete disassembly and possibly a complete failure in the process. They really need to take a look at the bearing design, I'm not the only one having this issue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wrong Bearings = Howling Product Designer here: I have owned (2) of the FAP-T02-F1 filtration systems and both failed just after a year of use. The bearings that were chosen for the motor shaft are 608ZZ shielded bearings, and are not sealed. The major design flaw here is that the blower motor is positioned after the pre-filters but before the final filter, so all of the microscopic particulate that enters the unit is free to pile up in the impeller housing and enter the bearings. You get nice clean quiet air... until the bearings are compromised and the unit turns itself into a howling banshee. Heartbreaking really, it is otherwise a very attractive and easy to use product, but the kingdom was lost all for want of a couple bearing seals. After reaching out to customer care, they rather bluntly told me nothing could be done. No refund, no coupons, thanks for the money, better luck next time. Typical of most modern consumer electronics, there is absolutely no way to lubricate or service the system without completely destroying it. I was surgically careful trying to open it, but unless you have a laboratory’s worth of specialty tools, it will die on the bench. So if your budget is roughly ~$150/yr for cleaner air in one corner of your house, this might just be the system for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good I bought this over a year ago and we only used it for 2 weeks. It had a very strong plastic smell. I had read reviews for many different air purifiers (not just yours) and this seems to be a problem lots of people have. It was so strong my mother couldn't breath. But I plugged it again last month and the plastic smell is totally gone and it works great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very noisy after a time I purchased this model in 2020. After several months of use, the motor became very noisy making a scraping sound even on the lowest setting. We were eventually unable to run it because of the noise. The unit was still in warranty, so I contacted Filtrete for replacement earlier this year. The replacement unit started out quiet, but now it is increasing in noise and the scraping noise has started. My next unit will be a different brand.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok The highest fan speed is really loud but I'm actually ok with that because it moves the air very well my 2 complaints would be 1 you can only basically use one stage filtration for the main filter in reality and 2 the carbon filter sold for use in it barely contains any carbon considering it takes around 5 pounds of active carbon to be actually worth it instead the filter media is lightly coated and thus will not hold up over 1 month and that's with light use if you're lucky. Best use is HEPA.
