BACK GRILL *EXTREMELY* DIFFICULT TO REFIT!! Be Warned

Norelle Cottee "Norelle Cottee", Amazon
19 September 2013
  • Summary: The machine works well. But, and a very BIG BUT, come to cleaning the filters the trouble really starts. After PRIZING the back grill off, the perma filters are easily damaged by the use of an upholstery brush as indicated by the instructions, so DON'T use a brush just the vacuum's bear handle.

More expensive to operate then ionic purifiers but cleaner air overall.

jeffraynor75, Ebay

  • Summary: I have had every type of air purifier from hepa to silent ionic purifiers. I would have to say ionic purifiers are great for you don't have to replace any filters but hepa trap more particles "dust, pollen etc." by moving more air.

Save yourself the trouble

  • Summary: I bought two of these air purifiers for my daughters family. They live in California and their neighbors smoke heavily and due to poor construction of their townhouse they have a strong smoke smell in their townhouse coming from the unit next to theirs.

  • Summary: What a piece of junk this thing is. The power supplies are garbage. I purchased one and power supply went. They sent me new one and same thing, smelled like electrical fire. Wet thru about 4 or 5 and they can't even replace this model anymore, Sent me a new model, but not happy with it.

Ugh.

Cassandra, Amazon
27 January 2012
  • Summary: After reading the glowing reviews on Amazon, I bought this air purifier for about $130. What a rip-off. It immediately filled the room with a chemical/bleach smell which only dissipated a little bit after leaving the unit on for about 8 hours.

makes a better white noise generator than an air filter

justinglen, Amazon
22 January 2012
  • Summary: This unit just doesn't move air around enough to do its job effectively. Partly I think this is because of its tower design (which doesn't do much for vertical air circulation) and partly I think its fan is under-powered, as you can really hardly feel any air movement when you put your hand right...

Very Pleased

Kathy, Amazon
19 January 2012
  • Summary: Very happy with this air cleaner so far. I've only had it a few days, but I really like it. It has an auto feature that automatically adjusts between low, medium, and high depending of what is needed. I use the noise of the machine to sleep. On low you can't even tell it's on.

Doesn't move as much air as it should

Critic at large, Amazon
14 January 2012
  • Summary: Generally nice unit, however there's a Holmes unit which is almost identical except for the control panel. The Holmes uses the same motor, fan blades and filters, but it tries to direct the air straight out. It is very forceful.
