Air Quality Indicator
Coway’s pollution sensor communicates indoor air quality in real-time. The colored LED lets you know how clean or dirty your indoor air is every minute of the day.
The continually operating air quality indicator senses indoor air particles and adjusts the fan speed accordingly to reduce particles.
The timer lets you schedule 1/4/8/12 hours of operation so you can set the unit for as long as you need to use it.
Filter Replacement Indicator
The filter indicator alerts you to needed filter changes.
Vital Ion System
As part of the four-stage filtration process, the bipolar ionizer generates an electrochemical reaction that reduces particles in the air.
Air Flow Control
The three fan speeds allow you to adjust the air output based on your unique air purification needs.

Instead of replacing the filter for the Alen we decided to buy the Coway for a little more than the price of an Alen filter.
We got it over the Coway Ap-1512HH since the Coway website has posted nearly similar airflow for the AP-1216L and we liked the slim profile better.
Quiet: at the lowest setting is super quiet, silent, much quieter than the Alen at the lowest setting, the downside is that it barely moves any air. Great for sleeping but you would have to use it at the 2nd setting to get it to work as well as the Alen and at the 2nd setting the noise level is comparable to Alen's lowest setting.
Cheap: costs a little more than an Alen replacement filter.
Small: with its tower like shape it takes less space and it's less visible in the room.
Smart(?): if you remove the front cover you realize that it's 2 small air purifier stacked, I guess they were able to keep cost down by not creating custom parts and filters, smart.
Some people complain about the night mode, it's really 2 small lights, you will not have a problem unless you need a pitch black room to sleep.
Air quality sensor: similar to other reviews it was working fine out of the box for the first couple of days, changing colours and cycling to different speeds in auto mode. But after a while it's been staying at blue/clean no matter what so we had to resort to keep it off auto and on a manual setting to make sure it was actually purifying the air. We ran a test and move the Alen in the same room and the Alen cycled through all of its settings. I guess the cost cutting continued all the way to the air quality sensor.
This is really the only con, but at the price of an Alen filter you can't complain and in a few years when the belts on the Coway loosen, we'll just buy another one for the price of a filter, not the most environmental friendly option but yeah...
We bought this model in part because it has a lights-out feature that turns off the main air quality light. The air quality light is indeed incredibly bright, so this is important. However, the feature doesn't go nearly far enough, as the smaller indicator lights on the console remain lit even when the lights-out feature is active. These indicator lights, which show the current fan speed, ionizer status, and so on, are themselves quite brilliant in an otherwise dark bedroom, bright enough to light up the room with a white, moonlight-like glow. We found that this seriously disrupted our sleep.
Particularly absurd is that there is a bright white indicator light to indicate when the lights-out mode is active. That is, there is literally a bright light that comes on to indicate that you don't want a bright light. I can't imagine what the product designers were thinking here.
The lights are built into the console and cannot be covered up easily. We tried taping over them, but each indicator light has extensive light bleed, so that covering up the light itself is futile; plenty of light leaks around the tape. Covering the entire console with a shirt was the only way we found to stop the light.
I haven't yet mentioned that the unit beeps whenever you touch a button. So if you want to change the fan speed in the middle of the night, it will emit a happy little beep to wake your sleeping partner up and let them know about the change. If you brush against the power button by accident, the unit will, for some unfathomable reason, override your lights-out setting and reactivate the main, blindingly bright air quality light. Turn the unit on or off, and it will play a cheerful melody just to make quite certain that everyone is wide awake. These electronic sounds cannot be turned off nor reduced in volume.
For all these reasons, the unit is impractical to use in a room where people are sleeping.
A less disruptive flaw is that the unit is very large and bulky. We got this unit because we prefer a tower form factor over the squat boxes that are popular nowadays, but this model absolutely dwarfs other tower air purifiers we've had. It's nearly a yard tall, nearly a foot wide, and boxy in shape. It's hard to picture just how big it is from photographs. It looks like it's about to eat my old Holmes tower air purifier for breakfast.
The unit works fine as an air purifier, so this might be a five-star device for someone who doesn't mind light, noise, or bulk. But for us, it was an awful choice.
