DESIGN & LOOKS
The cylindrical shape of the air purifier is what is different from other Philips Air Purifiers. This shape is better for drawing polluted air from all directions. A 360° air suction is created by the jet-engine shaped powerful fan. With other air purifiers at least one side like the back does not suck the air in. This limitation demands that you keep the air purifiers a minimum 1 foot away from the walls. Not so with the Philips AC0820. As is true with any circular shape, when it presses against any surface, it does so only tangentially. Hence, there is no obstruction in the path of airflow.
- Dimension of product (L*W*H): 250 * 250 * 367
- Gross Weight of packaging: 3 kg
- Weight of product: 2.4 kg

Let us inform you that it covers a smaller room space, especially floor area. Mathematically, for a fixed volume a circular shape occupies the least surface area. So it fits well where space is a constraint in most homes.
The Philips AC0820 Air Purifier is suitable only for small rooms. A room sized around 190 sq.ft is served well through it. Do not buy it for your bigger rooms as it would not succeed in its purpose. Instead, go for the all powerful and the Best Philips Air Purifier AC2887.

The MI Air Purifier has a real-time PM 2.5 digital display and a greater CADR in just a few hundred more Rupees. Both, MI and AC0820 are very close in internal fan and filter design.
