Differences Between Levoit Core 300 vs Blue Pure 411

The two devices are in the same price range. The purchase price of Blue Pure 411 is a little lower. But the decisive differences are in their raw performance.

Blue Pure 411 surely has many advantages with its minimalistic design. But Levoit Core 300 is an all-around more beneficial air purifier for average users.

Design

In the first round of Blue Pure 411 vs Levoit Core 300, the more attractive machine is the Blueair device.

While customers can only choose Levoit Core 300 in either black or white, Blue Pure 411’s basic package already includes Diva Blue and Dark Shadow. With the other color options of Buff Yellow, Crystal Pink, and Luna Rock, it can go well with almost every room imaginable.

Levoit Core 300 has a slightly thicker and more rounded profile. Blue Pure 411 has a taller, cleaner, and more minimal look. The slimmer machine is also half as lighter.

On a side note, I want to give customers with trypophobia a heads-up about the top cover of Blue Pure 411. If you are one, you might want to opt for the propeller-like top cover of the other competitor.

Coverage

Levoit Core 300 blows Blue Pure 411 out of the water in this round with its excellent performance. The Levoit can cover a larger area and have a higher cubic feet per minute rate with all of smoke, dust, and pollen.

Blue Pure 411 works best in a room of 161 square feet. Meanwhile, Levoit Core 300 has a 219 square feet coverage. That equals the acreage of master bedrooms. Not really a large-space purifier, but in a 300-square-foot room, the purifier still gives a solid performance.

Filter

Both purifiers run a 3-stage filter system that can remove strong odors and pet dander. The innermost and the outermost layer of each one are the same (pre-filter/activated carbon filter).

The middle layer is what tells them apart. The True HEPA Air Purifier can trap 99.97% of 0.3-micron particles. 

Levoit Core 300 performs well in normal conditions. But like some Levoit LV-H132, it falls short a bit in terms of cleaning polluted particles when compared to Blueair devices.

Like in Blueair Blue Pure 311, the company provides the trademark HEPASilent technology for this purifier. This filter can capture 95% of airborne particles but can significantly increase the indoor air quality in highly polluted areas.

Noise Control

In this round of Levoit Core 300 vs Blue Pure 411, determining the better purifier is not as difficult as the previous one. Blue Pure 411 is the quieter machine.

At the lowest speed, Blue Pure 411 only generates 17 dB. And at the highest fan speed, the air purifier only gives off 46 dB. The recommended noise level for highly concentrated working environments is 50 dB. That means you can work well with medium fan speed.

Meanwhile, the noise output of Levoit Core 300 at the lowest speed is 24 and the highest is 50 dB. So it didn’t get a point for noise output.

Functionality

Levoit Core 300’s dominance in functionality is what brings it a victory. Additional quality features of the winner that you can’t find in the runner-up include timer option, sleep mode, and child lock.

You can sleep peacefully with the timer option and the low fan speed and night light feature of the sleep mode. There is also no worry about your kids playing with the air purifier thanks to the child lock.

The two purifiers have a touch control panel and don’t have a remote control. Some might say Blueair Blue Pure 411’s single-button control panel is more user-friendly. But I believe that the purifier’s control scheme only reflects its minimal features.

The washable air intake pre – filter of the Blueair purifier is somewhat more convenient. Because with the other device, the replacement filters are all fresh filters. Its cost of electricity is also lower. But in my belief,  those things couldn’t swing the competition in its favor.

The Bottom Line

Between Levoit Core 300 vs Blue Pure 411, the first purifier is the more well-rounded product with many features and power.

But I have to say that Blue Pure 411 held its own as an eye-catching, low-energy cost, quiet small-space purifier. It is also nicer on your budget.
