Good with limitations.
I purchased a Climate AP30 Air Purifier 14 months ago for my wife's room as she is a chronic asthmatic. It seems to work very well and her breathing has certainly become better since buying it. In the current time of high smoke levels due to the terrible bushfires it has sure done the job.
The unit appears to be well made and it is easy to remove the filters for cleaning or changing. The fan is quiet except when it is in auto mode and it senses poor quality air and the fan goes to full speed, this does not usually last long. There is a sle...ep mode that keeps the fan at low speed no matter what the air quality is. The first one I bought became very noisy after about eight months and it was replaced under warranty by The Good Guys on instruction from Breville, the distributors, after it was checked by a local appliance technician. My main concern is that the operation handbook states that the filters should be replaced every 2000 hours or 8 months. This is based on running the AP30 8 hours a day, we need to run the AP30 24/7 so the recommended filter change comes down to every 83 days, in other words 4 times per year. At nearly $100 for a set of filters this is a very expensive air purifier to run.
Purchased in November 2018 at The Good Guys for $332.00.
Excellent at Filtering but Replacement Filters $$$
It really helps keep pollen out (we no longer get hayfever inside on high pollen count days) and gets rid of smells inside quickly (which is very handy with a toilet-training toddler).
Only downside is how expensive the replacement filters are - $99 a set - but it does work extremely well.
So we do recommend it, but only if you are a hayfever or asthma sufferer that needs allergens or odours removed. Otherwise it's too expensive to keep going.
I find the cli-mate AP30 good, but the replacement filters are an exorbitant price. If you buy 3 lots of filters at $99 each, you might as well buy another unit at around the same price, or buy a different unit with more reasonable filter pricing. The mark up on the filter replacements is far to high.
