Clean air can come at a high price, but you don’t have to sacrifice air quality for energy savings. With the Levoit Vista 200 air purifier, you can reap the benefits of healthy indoor air without paying for it every month when you open your electricity bill.
A wrap-around intake, surround outlet and cylindrical triple-layer filter make the Vista 200 highly efficient in small to average-sized rooms. There are even a nightlight and a sleep mode for your convenience and comfort.
Perfect Tabletop Size
The Levoit Vista 200 is sized just right for placement on nightstands, dressers, desks and tabletops. Measuring 7.9 inches in diameter and 12.9 inches in height, this cylindrical air purifier is a space-saver. Its featherlight weight of 3.3 pounds makes it easy to move. With its pure white finish, the Vista 200 not only looks great in any space but also invokes the feeling of clean.
Efficient in Small Spaces
Don’t let the Vista 200’s small size fool you – It’s no “personal” air purifier. This air purifier can handle the demands of 161 square foot room, meaning it’s ideal for use in bedrooms, home offices and even enclosed kitchens. Although the Vista 200 is still awaiting a clean air delivery rate from the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers, estimates put the CADR anywhere from 200 to 250.
An Energy-Saving Purifier
Can you spare an extra $6 spread out over 12 months? If so, you can afford to run the Levoit Vista 200 around the clock every day of the year. The air purifier uses a mere 15 watts of electricity. On standby mode, the power consumption drops to 0.9 watts. Its power source is a USB adapter with a cord that stretches to 72.4 inches.
We were impressed by the way the intake and outlet are designed. The intake wraps around the entire bottom half of the tower, pulling in dirty air from all sides of the room. Similarly, the outlet encircles the top of the tower to release clean air to every corner of the room. This setup contributes to the Vista 200’s purification efficiency.
A Variable-Speed Fan
Levoit put a three-speed fan inside the Vista 200. Since a brushless motor controls the fan, the noise production is ultra-quiet. On its highest speed, the air purifier makes 52 decibels of noise, which is comparable to the low hum of a refrigerator. On its lowest speed, the decibels drop to 26 – This level is akin to the light rustling of leaves.
The filtration system is a singular, cylindrical media that consists of three layers. The true-HEPA layer filters 99.97 percent of bacteria, dust, dander and other small allergens from the air. The pre-filter traps lint and hair, and the carbon filter neutralizes ammonia, VOCs and foul odors. Depending on the frequency of use and the indoor air quality, the filter media lasts from 5 to 7 months.
You can adjust the lighting and operation of the Vista 200. Levoit added functions such as sleep mode, which reduces the fan speed and dims the light. The LED backlight and nightlight are controllable; you can turn off these lights or adjust the nightlight’s brightness to one of two levels. There is even an 8-hour timer that powers down the air purifier for you, saving even more energy.
The ultra-sleek touch panel’s illustrated buttons make it user-friendly. Its location on top of the air purifier means it’s easy to reach over and change a setting from your bed or desk chair. From the control panel, you have access to every function, including the display light toggle, fan speed, timer and nightlight, and there are indicator lights connected to every selection.
Levoit’s Vista 200 is safe to use around infants and those who have compromised immune systems. The air purifier does not produce any pollutants such as ozone. It’s also certified as toxic-free by the California Air Resources Board. Additionally, the air purifier meets the standards set by California Proposition 65 and the Electrical Testing Laboratories.
Small and Serene
Unlike many other whole-room air purifiers, the Vista 200 is whisper quiet, making it perfect for use in the bedroom or a home office. The purifier is the ideal size for tabletop placement, and its 360-degree filters rid the air of allergens, odors and VOCs. Take a look at how the Vista 200 compares to three of Levoit’s most popular air purifiers.
Levoit Vista 200 vs. Levoit LV-H132
These two tower-style air purifiers boast true-HEPA filtration that includes a layer of odor-reducing carbon and a large-particle pre-filter. Both air purifiers’ one-piece filter media loads from the bottom and lasts about half the year. The purifiers are also equipped with an indicator light that lets you know when it’s time to replace the filter.
With each air purifier, you get three fan-speed settings, one of which produces a mere 25 decibels. If you choose to activate it, you can turn on the nightlight while you sleep. A low-light setting lets you decrease the brightness level. Both of these Levoit purifiers also offer the reassurance of no ozone production and CARB certification.
One of the Vista 200’s main benefits is its cylindrical filter media, which is more efficient at allergen capturing than the LV-H132’s disc filter. It’s also 3.3 pounds lighter and slightly smaller, and it consumes 13 fewer watts of electricity. The LV-H132 doesn’t offer a timer and a sleep mode like the Vista 200 does, and it doesn’t cover as many square feet.
The Vista 200 is equipped with a border outlet while the Levoit LV-H132 has a top-center outlet, both of which rival one another in dispersion effectiveness. However, when pitting the highest fan speed’s decibel level against one another, the LV-H132’s sound level is 2 decibels lower. Levoit has already released the LV-H132’s air change rate as four times per hour while the figure for the Vista 200 is unknown.
Levoit Vista 200 vs. Levoit LV-H133
Both of these white air purifiers use a three-part filter to trap allergens and airborne contaminants. Each filter is a 360-degree cylinder unit that includes a true-HEPA filter, a pre-filter and a carbon filter. Neither model produces lung-damaging ozone, and both are compliant with the California Air Resources Board’s regulations. From their central touch panel, you can turn off the LED light, put the purifiers in the 25-decibel sleep mode and choose from one of three fan speeds.
While both air purifiers’ inlets are located on the bottom half of the tower, the Vista 200’s is the only one that’s fully surrounding. The Vista 200 is also the electricity-saver of the two, using 18 fewer watts. Its fan is quieter than the Levoit LV-H133 when on high speed. In terms of size, the LV-H133 is about 17 pounds heavier and twice the width and height.
Although each air purifier is a rounded tower, the LV-H133 is concave, presumably to help you lift it. Since the filter loads from the side, it’s easier to change, and it can handle rooms over three times the size than the Vista 200’s maximum coverage.
The outlet on the LV-H133 is cyclone-inspired for enhanced circulation, and the air purifier can monitor the indoor air quality. You can set the timer to 12 hours instead of 8 hours. Unlike the Vista 200, you can see the timer countdown on a clock. The LV-H133 also offers an auto mode, which is a feature that Levoit did not use for the Vista 200.

Levoit Vista 200 vs. Levoit LV-PUR131S
For the Vista 200 and the Levoit LV-PUR131S, Levoit opted for true-HEPA filtration without any ozone off-gassing. Their filters last anywhere from 5 to 7 months, and their three-speed fan never gets louder than 52 decibels. Both white air purifiers come complete with top-positioned air outlets as well as onboard touch-control panels. From either model’s control panel, you can toggle the LED backlight, activate sleep mode and view indicators for the filter and fan speed.
The cylindrical Vista 200 has a 360-degree inlet while the boxy LV-PUR131S is equipped with a rear-placed inlet. At their lowest fan speed, the Vista 200 is quieter. The Vista 200 also consumes 15 watts to the LV-PUR131S’ 40 watts, and its one-piece media is easier to change than the LV-PUR131S’ two-piece set. Since the Vista 200 is much smaller and lighter, you have more options as to where to put it.
With a 4.5 ACH in a 350-square-foot room, the LV-PUR131S is the more efficient of the two air purifiers. It’s also smarter, offering Wi-Fi connectivity. Therefore, instead of just an onboard control panel like the Vista 200 has, you get a touch panel as well as compatibility with the VeSynch app, Alexa and Assistant.
The LV-PUR131S’ filter indicator is algorithm-based as opposed to interval-timed. From the VeSynch app, you can view the air quality and customize an auto-run schedule. The LV-PUR131S’ timer goes as long as 12 hours, which is four more hours than what the Vista 200 offers. The LV-PUR131S also has a dust sensor for air quality monitoring and an easily accessible rear-loading filter compartment.
