If you have researched the market for air purifiers, you have probably come across Blueair and Honeywell brands. Those are extremely popular, reliable brands that produce top-notch air purifiers.
In this article, I will compare the Blueair 411 Auto and Honeywell HPA100 air purifiers. Those are two small air purifiers. Blueair covers 190 sq. ft. rooms, while Honeywell covers 155 sq. ft. rooms.
Although I often tend to mention that the Blueair 411 Auto is a minimalistic air purifier, in this case, I could say they both are. Except for Blueair’s air quality sensor, these air purifiers almost don’t have any advanced features.
What else I want to mention is that I particularly like the True HEPA filter on the Honeywell HPA100 and a washable pre-filter on the Blueair 411 Auto. Those are the main trumps of these air purifiers.
In the following, I will compare Blueair 411 Auto and Honeywell HPA100 specifications, test results, and other characteristics, and I will decide which one is a better buying option.

Which One Does It Better?
Frankly, I really like the Honeywell HPA100 air purifier, but it’s somehow outdated, at least when speaking of design. On the other hand, the Blueair 411 Auto is a modern air purifier with an innovative design and a few exciting features.
Apart from the design, the Blueair 411 Auto has an air quality sensor, it’s extremely low electricity consumer, uses a washable pre-filter, and made outstanding results in performance tests. All these facts are why I choose the Blueair 411 Auto as a better buying option and my absolute recommendation over the Honeywell HPA100.
