Surround Air XJ-3800 Intelli-Pro Air Purifier Review

If you have allergies and live or work in an environment where the air is full of dust, pollen, chemicals, dust mites and other allergens, you will need a quality air purifier to avoid itchy eyes and a runny nose. 

The Surround Air XJ-3800 Intelli-Pro Air Purifier is a top-rated product that outperforms many brands of air purifiers in its class.  Clinical tests show that it is five time more effective than other models in toxin removal.

What Makes It Special

The Surround Air Intelli-Pro is fully loaded with sensors and monitors to detect and determine what pollutants are in the air.  It also has a feature that tells you when it is time to change the filters.

You’ll always know when there is dust, cigarette smoke, pollen, pet dander, chemicals and mold spores around.  The Intelli-Pro’s clean air monitor tells you how clean or how polluted the air is.  Guesswork is eliminated because diagnostic sensors indicate when to clean the metal dust collector grid and when to replace filters. 

Light indicators also tell you that the UV light and ionizer are functioning properly.

7-Step Purifier Stages

Most other air purifier use two or three types of filtration.  In the case of the Surround Air Intelli-Pro air purifier, there are a total of seven stages.

1. Pre-filter to capture the largest particles
2. Electrostatic precipitator to trap dust particles
3. Thin carbon filter to remove odors
4. HEPA filter removes 99.97% of airborne pollutants
5. Photocatalytic Oxidation Filter to remove bacteria and odors
6. Ultraviolet lamp to kill most microorganisms
7. Negative ionization

The electrostatic precipitator attracts and collects dust particles and other pollutants.  It requires little maintenance - simply wipe it clean when it gets dirty.  The ionizer is safe and releases virtually no ozone.  The pre-filter is washable and does not require replacement.  It increases the durability and improves the performance of the other filters.

The Intelli-Pro is powerful yet works quietly.  It has a Multiple Air Inlet Design that allows maximum air flow through the unit.  The unit’s powerful fan distributes the purified air throughout the room.  If you are concerned about energy consumption, you’ll be pleased to know that the Surround Air Intelli-Pro is energy efficient. 
It uses sensor technology to save on electricity and features a “Quiet” setting for noise-free operation.

Quiet Operation

One of the biggest drawbacks to air purifiers is the amount of noise they produce during operation.  This is not the case with the Intelli-Pro.  It operates silently in the quiet setting mode, and even the highest setting boosts performance with minimal noise.  In addition, its sensor automatically adjusts the power settings to reduce energy consumption.

Sensor Technology

Guesswork is eliminated and you only get clean air with the Surround Air Intelli-Pro air purifier.  It has a self-monitoring system that provides instant information about the unit’s performance.  People with allergies will like the odor-, dust- and allergen-sensors that tell you what pollutants are present in the air.

Things You’ll Like

If you want to remove odors, smoke and allergy-causing pollutants in the air, the Intelli-Pro should be the first thing on your mind.  The different filters in the unit remove airborne particles responsible for allergies and breathing problems such as tobacco smoke, dust mites, pollen, dust and pet dander.  Sensor lights turn on when there are pollutants in the air and they go off when the air quality is improved.

This air purifier has an ionizer filter but emits very little ozone.  This is a good thing because ozone can worsen asthma attacks.

One of the features that many consumers like about the Intelli-Pro air purifier is its low noise level.  While some air cleaners produce a loud sound from the moving air, this model is very quiet particularly in low or medium setting.  When set on high, it makes a “white noise” that is not annoyingly loud at all.

The Intelli-Pro is reasonably priced at a little over $200.  No doubt you can find air purifiers that cost much less but do not have the multi-stage filtering process of this product.  All in all, you get a lot more value for your money with the Surround Air XJ-3800 Intelli-Pro.

Last but not least, this product has a sleek and futuristic design that you will love.


Even with an overall rating of 4.5 stars out of 5, some consumers pointed out that this product has a few minor drawbacks.  One problem is with the electrostatic fine wires that break easily.  Apparently, the wires are quite delicate and you must clean them gently with your finger.

The product description says that the Intelli-Pro can cover a room with an area of 600 square feet.  The fan has a CFM rate of 106 cubic feet per minute.  This is good for 325 sq. ft. only.  On the upside, a higher CFM would increase the noise level of the air purifier.

Bottom Line

This is a high-quality, sturdily built air purifier with excellent features.  The Surround Air Intelli-Pro XJ-3800 removes allergens and odors very quickly.  Its automatic mode provides just the right amount of power that you need and saves electricity.  If you’re looking for a “smart” air cleaner, this is the one for you.


  1. I have found in another site that there’s an air purifier sale on Dec 26-30. Maybe they want to sell their old stocks. Well, that would be good news for everyone who can’t afford to buy one. Grab it now.

  2. I never knew that Cleaning agents are one of the causes of polluted air. Installing best whole house HEPA Air Purifier can eliminate pollutants that cause some of the most common upper respiratory illnesses, colds, allergy irritation and asthma.
