Hi guys, I have very recently purchased the Atem because our office employees LOVE to open the windows and the air ventilation system itself is very low quality. Anyway, the article is correct. One has to have the outlet of the clean air really close to the nose to achieve a reasonable filtration air and by that I mean approximately 50% PM10 reduction. Combined with the horrible loudness of the Atem it means that one has to have it very, VERY close to the face. And that’s what I do…. I could go on into how “young” this product is… Read more »


I often use the 1.1 up close and personal. Using a ventilator pump to sleep at night, I place the 1.1 within a few cm’s of the ventilator input filter and am assured (thanks to egg confirmation) that I’ll be having forced into my lungs 0 particles of pm2.5. during waking hours the 1.1 dutifully cleans the room.

I’d love if Smartair was able to develop a smaller version of the 1.1 that was portable enough to place on your lap or desk at work.

I’m sorry, Paddy, but I am with Michael on this one. You can’t effectively make a comparison without actually testing the product. This is especially true when you are an air filtration company reviewing a competitors product. The need for an ulterior motive is directly related to you HAVING a dog in this race. While I respect SmartAir’s ability to actually run a real test, it would not kill you to order an IQAir Atem from amazon.com and apply Global Shipping to to China for under $100 USD. You could easily re-sell this model in Beijing on the internet for… Read more »

IQAir provides systems to 150 hospitals and health care facilities in Hong Kong to help contain the virus. Below is a longer discussion on the use of hyper HEPA filters in 2003 in Hong Kong (https://www.iqair.com/newsroom/iqair-selected-provide-hong-kong-hospitals-new-tool-fight-against-sars-virus) I don’t know too much about China but… Read more »

you are not taking into consideration that the filtration goes down to .003 micron and not the .3 microns of standard HEPA filters. In my eyes, the ultrapure hyper HEPA filter blows extra clean air just around your immediate location. It is basically blowing ultra pure air and displacing the less purified air that around your face with super clean air. their so-called bubble effect that IQAir claims. I am very impressed with the air I breathe from the Atem. The air blown at me is really wonderful and does help with allergies is my case. I really love this… Read more »
