Summary of Expert Review:

The Honeywell 120-Q Tower is a good dust removal air purifier that delivers moderate airflow at a cheap purchase price. The 120-Q Air Purifier does not use a HEPA filter, but instead utilizes a unique type of filter technology that Honeywell has an exclusive license to in the US. This Filter technology is a plastic filter with an electrostatic charge applied to it to attract dust and allergens.

Depending on your preferences, this filtration method is either the key advantage, or main drawback of this unit. If you are ok spending your time hand washing the filter every 2 weeks to maintain its performance, then you can save money on filter replacements. But many people don't want to touch the filth that their filter collects. They would rather throw the whole filter in the trash once a year and be done with it. If that's you, then this isn't likely going to be a unit you will like.

Since it does not use a HEPA filter, it delivers lower rates of filtration efficiency. However, it does so at very low noise levels and low power levels.

Most Honeywell units lack activated carbon or other additives which make them ineffective for odors or chemicals. This applies to the Honeywell 120-Q air purifier as well.

However, for the price, it can be used as a dust removal unit and first line of defense. It has an oscillation feature and a very simple set of controls. The unit feels solid & made of thick plastic.
