The Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk Air Purifier (Dyson DP01) is the little child of a big air purifier brand, presenting the iconic design and unique features that is exclusively belonged to Dyson. Generally, an air purifier is not for cooling the air, but Dyson is able to prove the difference. Meet the first portable air purifier of this company in our Dyson Pure Cool Link Review.

Dyson is a well-known British technology company of Sir James Dyson, and this company has been the world leader of many household appliances, including of air purifiers, since 1991. The innovation in the Dyson Pure Cool Link are the huge improvement in air purifier industry, which differs the Dyson air purifiers from any other air purifiers. So, we should get back to the smallest unit of this family, in the Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk Review.
Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk Price
The Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk (or Dyson DP01) is one of the three desktop air purifiers from this company. The others are the Dyson HP01 and HP02, with the new heating function. Our today unit is the Pure Cool Link air purifier, meaning it can only cool your room beside the main function of air purification.
This is the shorter alternative to the pricier Dyson Pure Cool Tower (code name TP01) – and while they’re good to look at, in some ways they are lacking. Also, we have the later version of the Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk, in the name of Dyson DP04.
But the shorter isn’t always the more affordable, as the Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk will cost you even more than the popular Dyson Pure Cool, especially when you can save $100 with the tower Dyson Pure Cool in the official website of Dyson U.S. But back to the Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk price, it is $449 in Dyson website, or you can get a much better deal below from Breathe Quality.
Remember that all Dyson air purifiers are given the same name. Our today unit is the Dyson DP01, which is the oldest model and shouldn’t be mistaken with the Dyson DP04. The Dyson HP01 and Dyson HP02 has a different design, and it offers an additional heating function.
As great as the product is, Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk is now available among the finest products of many big American air purifier brands. And while the air flow of the Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk is the most consistent, its CADR rating is even better than the performance of the highest CADR air purifiers, like Sharp FP-A80UW, Winix U450, Biota Bot MM608I or Whirlpool WPPRO2000.

Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk Design and Size
Are you familiar with the Dyson fans in the past? I was, and now I remember exactly how I fell in love with the bladeless design of the old Dyson fan, and in technician view, I believe this is also the best one you can get for your home.
But still there is one problem, the dirt can clog inside the fan and you will need to clean it regularly like any other normal fans. Then Dyson found the solution, and it is pretty simple, they just combine the feature of an air purifier with the fan, so all the dust will be held tightly in the HEPA filter of the air purifier.
So to say, you have the new Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk, or the Dyson DP01 because it is the first desktop model. With this new combination, the Dyson company quickly stopped selling the fan-only models, so they can focus on improving the air purifier function.
As a fan itself, the Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk can be adjusted manually by pivoting the body up and down. The whole air outlet is under the circle of this air purifier, making a simple bottom-to-top air flow system concept. Looking at the below body and you can find many perforated holes acted as the air intake. This design is still familiar with the Dyson DP04, which I will write a review soon.
The air purifier is 24.3 inches in height, and the amp diameter to be 14 inches. Though the format is a desktop air purifier, such height is most suitable for putting on ground. The cord length is up to 6 feet, so you can easily place your Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk air purifier anywhere in your home.
The Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk is an air purifier with ease-of-use in mind, and you need a remote control to manage the device settings. On the device itself, there is only one button.
Despite of the bigger size, Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk is only 6.6 lbs, making it a perfect best air purifier for bedroom.

Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk Filters
We need to check the air filters as well as the air filter types to decide the raw performance of one air purifier, and the Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk is not an exception. All old Dyson air purifiers (with 01 or 02 in code name) are using the 2-stage air cleaning filter as below.
- True HEPA filter – With the glass HEPA filter, the Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk is able to capture 99.97% all airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns, including pollen, bacteria and pet dander.
- Activated Carbon filter – Removes household odors, smoke and gases.
As the first model of Dyson air purifier family, the Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk uses the old Evo filter. This air filter is made of borosilicate microfibers, thus being certified as the True HEPA filter. You should believe in the performance of any Dyson air filters, as even with the high price, there is lots of positive reviews for this actual high power.
It has a layer of Activated Carbon filter, but the carbon filter is not as deep as advanced models, like the Dyson DP04. To change the air filter, you need to remove the head and input the air filter into.
In the real-world test process, I used the Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk in a room of 400 square feet, and let it compete with Rabbit Air BioGS 2.0, Levoit LV-H134 and GermGuardian AC9400W in 1 hour. The result, our today Dyson DP01 was the best performer, with high efficiency of 99.9% for trapping any particles down to 0.3 microns. The Levoit LV-H134 and GermGuardian AC9400W nearly reached the same performance of Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk, rounded up to 99.9%. Rabbit Air BioGS 2.0 had the lowest score with only 99.8%.
The price of the HEPA filter replacement is not high in this price range, as you only need $69 for one genuine replacement filter for Dyson DP01, and it is compatible with both HP01 and HP02, too. You need to change the filter annually for optimal performance.

Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk Room Coverage
The Dyson is not the regular air purifier device in the market. It is also a fan, which can give you high and uninterrupted air flow. That being said, the Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk can cover for a larger space than any common air purifiers, given its very quick air speed.
All air purifiers under the name of Pure Cool are tested in a room of 360 square feet, based on a 8-ft ceiling, according to Dyson official website. However, you can use the Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk in a room of 400 square feet without any problems.
Because this air purifier is also a fan, we don’t have the ACH and CADR ratings. Dyson told that high CADR rating doesn’t mean better, so they don’t quote any CADR score for their products. But with the maximum air flow to be 334 liters per second, which is equal to approximately 700 cfm, the Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk is certainly able to cover a large room.

Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk Sound
The Dyson fan is not a noisy fan, and we all expect the next-gen mixture of air purifier and fan to be as silent as possible. Indeed, the lowest setting only results in whisper-like noise, and you won’t hear any sound from this air purifier.
On highest speed, the noise level can reach as high as 57 decibels (db). This noise level is reasonable for an air purifier with fan power, and you don’t need to worry as it is only the white noise, which helps you fall into sleep much easier.
And that’s why you can use the Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk whenever you want, even in the quietest places.

Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk Power Consumption
One of our most FAQs is “Do air purifiers use a lot of energy?” In fact, an air purifier must be used for a long time to be efficient. And power consumption is one important criteria to review if this air purifier is good or not.
For an air purifier with fan function, the Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk is truly energy-saving. The power consumption is only from 4 to 32 watts, which grants this device an Energy Star rate. You can’t believe the performance is achieved through such high fan power, right? Then you need to think it again.
If you run the Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk air purifier for 8 hours per day, you only need to pay from $1.5 to $12 each year.

Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk Additional Features
The Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk, besides the obvious air purifier function, is also a fan itself. There is only one power button on the body, so you need the remote control to use this air purifier. The remote is magnetic, and can stick to the top of the air purifier easily.
Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk offers up to 10 fan speed settings, as well as an oscillation to help circulate the air in your room. Other basic settings like Timer or Night Mode (to dim the display and lower the fan speed) are also available in this Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk.
And don’t forget that this air purifier is a high-end device, too. It has a Smart Sensor to help it detect any changes in the indoor air, and respond by changing the fan speed that matches the environment. This feature is really important for an air purifier, as you can just set the device on and totally forget it.
Moreover, you can control this air purifier with a connected app – the Dyson Link app. Thanks to the Wi-Fi function or voice control from Amazon Echo, you can give this Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk some simple instructions, as well as monitor the current air quality.
It is pretty much everything for a high-end air purifier, and the Dyson Link app works great. Up until now, I’m really happy with my Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk air purifier.

Dyson only has a 2-year warranty for both labor and parts of their air purifiers. I believe it is reasonable to trust in the devices of this company.
The Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk is a great invention for us, an amazing combination of both air purifier and fan. It is the start of an innovative lineup, and you will be pleased by either function.
People who should buy this air purifier is likely to love the unique design, but still demand a little compact size to work as a personal air purifier. The air purifier is a device of modern era, with a lot of handy features to enjoy, as well as a fan with high air flow to both purify and cool your room. But its price is still in the mid-range, and the question is: can you afford this amazing air purifier?
- Cleaning Power
- Power Consumption
A great compact air purifier from Dyson, but you should upgrade to Dyson DP04 immediately.
