Trying to select a portable HEPA filter for a small (about 9x10) room. What has worked best for you? What should I avoid? Permanent filter or replaceable?

My husband and I recently got a dog, and we love him, but our allergies (particularly my husband's) have turned out to be worse than we thought. Even before we got the dog, I would sometimes wake up with a sore throat and itchy eyes. I'd like to get an air filter for the bedroom to cut down on some of the allergens, but I've heard conflicting things about the utility of various brands and styles of filters. I don't want to get something that works great but costs me a fortune in replacement filters. Ideally I'd like to spend less than $200, but that's negotiable.
