User Rating: 4.59 ( 8 votes)

The 600 series are some of the best air purification system available on the market. The volume of filtered air delivered was tested by the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) part of the Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) program. According to the results, they are the fastest portable air purification devices. Designed for rooms up to 698 square feet, the Blueair 600 Series: Model 650E combines the best in electrostatic and mechanical filtration technology with low energy consumption and low ozone emissions. This air purifier provides the same air purification performance as the Blueair 603 but comes with a digital display and a handy remote so you do not have to leave your desk to adjust speed setting. If you live in an area with year-round pollen and other indoor pollutants, it might be the right choice.



Although it uses an ionizer, a component that produces harmful ozone, the Blueair Model 650E meets the certification for low-ozone emissions. The purifier is rather loud, but for a device this size, it is understandable. Based on its noise and size, it would be unreasonable for small or mid-sized rooms. If you are trying to watch a movie or if you are throwing a part you will have to turn it off. The 650E uses two types of filters: the Particle Filter to reduce pollen, dust, pet dander, mold spores and the SmokeStop Filter to capture tobacco smoke, gasses, and odors. After running through an operation, it enters Sleep Mode, lowering the noise level and saving energy. We also like the filter monitor that help you keep track of when the filter needs to be changed. The Blueair 600 series have a five-year warranty on parts and air filters. Although the air purifier is energy efficient, you will have to invest in filter replacement and change it every six months.

Design and Ease of Use

The 600 series air purifier is designed for large rooms such as large master bedrooms, large family area rooms, office, basements and other spaces. However, this means that the 650E model is large so it comes with four wheels to help you move it around. Its design looks a bit medical, like something you would find in a hospital, but its ugly appearance is overshadowed by its performance. This air purifier has electronic controls that make it easier to operate, although they are located too close to the floor. Besides the inconveniently located controls, some users complain about the filter indicator that counts days instead of the actual status of the filter.

Other Features

The Blueair 650E uses HEPASilent filtration technology to achieve better results by combining an encapsulated ion particle charging chamber and advanced filter media. The air purifier has sensors that read the level of pollution and adjust its setting accordingly. By meeting the energy efficiency guidelines, they have earned Energy Star ratings. This means that on average, running such a system all day long costs no more than running a single light bulb. The excellent performance is verified by AHAM and CADR, so you can access their website and see for yourself. The air purifier is also environmentally friendly, producing only carbon dioxide and water as it decomposes.

    How much electricity does this unit consume?

    • Karen Coleman

      Hi, Patrick. Given that it’s an Energy Star rated unit and it features an auto shut-off, it shouldn’t add too much to your electricity bill so don’t worry about this aspect.

  • Martin

    Is this air filter good for eliminating odors? I’m a smoker and I sometimes smoke indoors so I would need a unit that can remove cigarette smoke.

  • Amanda

    My budget is a little under $600. Can I buy this air purifier, or is it too expensive?

    • The Blueair 650E has a price tag of $850, which means that it’s definitely over your budget. But we recommend that you don’t give up on it in case you like this model, but wait for a discount period to purchase it.

    I was thinking about getting this unit for the office. Is is too loud while operating?

  • Gillian

    I use this air purifier in combination with a dehumidifier. Since I have been doing this, my basement smells great, you can actually sense that mold isn’t an issue anymore.

  • Candice

    Is it CADR rated for dust, smoke, and pollen?

  • Mark

    The purifier is indeed a bit loud, so I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone who wants to use it in their office. But if the living room is the target area, then you definitely have to buy it! I personally use it in the living room because I’m a smoker and I hate leaving an unpleasant smell in the room just because of by guilty pleasure. It does an amazing job at cleansing the air, even my wife noticing the huge difference since we bought it.
