Ease of Use Rating
The Oransi v-hepa Max air purifier is simple to set up and operate. It is ready to use out of the box. The power controls are very intuitive. Access to the filter requires removal of the cover that has a spring lock to hold them in place.
The pre-filter can be washed or vacuumed lightly to clean. As we have found with most other air purifiers, the units come with a complete set of air filters. We found the filters easy to replace.
The light around the power button can also be turned off. This is a nice detail that most air purifiers miss.
Based on our testing the v-hepa Max can effectively clean rooms up to the 600 sq ft range( 20’ x 30’).
The noise level at the highest fan speed is louder than some users would want while in a bedroom. We found the air flow of the Max to be quite strong. So it can effectively be run in a bedroom on the lower fan speed settings. This results in quieter performance than any all HEPA air purifiers we have tested.
The noise level on high is 53 dB which is much quieter than the other HEPA based purifiers we reviewed. On the lowest fan speed setting the Max was very quiet.
The Oransi v-hepa Max air purifier removed over 99% of the particles that were passing through the air purifier based on our particle counter. This places the Max air purifier among the top of all air purifiers tested.
In searching the web for customer reviews we found most reviewers purchased for bedroom and office use. Shoppers were most interested in a high performance air purifier to remove allergens such as dust, pollen and mold.
The performance, design and feature set of the air purifier get most of the attention. Users comment on the relatively quiet noise level for a HEPA air purifier and filter performance.
83% of purchasers rate the purifier 5 stars, the highest of the air purifiers we tested. We did find a couple comments on the noise level on the highest fan speed setting being a bit louder than the reviewers would have liked.
