Levoit and Blueair are very competitive brands, and that’s why I’m pleased when comparing air purifiers from these two brands. Today I will compare Blueair 411 Auto and Levoit Vital 100 air purifiers.
Immediately after reviewing their specifications, it is clear that these are not similar air purifiers. Blueair 411 Auto is a minimalistic air purifier, almost without advanced options if we exclude the air quality sensor. Levoit Vital 100, on the other hand, has a few additional options, such as a timer and display off, but does not have an air quality sensor, which is perhaps a much more important option.
Levoit covers rooms up to 300 sq. ft., while Blueair covers much smaller rooms up to 190 sq. ft. Both devices use high-quality filters, which last about the same time, and both performed exceptionally in tests.
When it comes to design, honestly, I fancy the Blueair 411 Auto more than the Levoit Vital 100, primarily because of its simplicity as well as the unique pre-filter, which is also available in five different colors.

Which One Does It Better?
To summarize, the Levoit Vital 100 performed slightly better in performance tests than the Blueair 411 Auto, but in all other tests, the Blueair was better.
Because of not that significant difference in performance tests, and because of much cheaper maintenance, having an air quality sensor, and unique pre-filter, I choose the Blueair 411 Auto as the winner in this comparison and as a better buying option.
