Very Loud + Little Purification = No Recommend The only reason I gave this product two stars is because it worked better than having nothing at all. I am very allergic to my wife's dog which brings about asthma attacks so I originaly bought the Biozone 3000w and it worked like a charm. Unfortunatly it was just to strong for the bedroom, but very quiet (it is rated for a minimum of 500 feet, so in the 200sqft bedroom it smells a little like bleech) so it now easily purifies the rest of the house all day long. I read some good things about this product from Surrond Air and thought I would give it a try. First of all it was very very loud, I was ok with that because I have slept through earthquakes, my wife also falls asleep easily. The problem is that it does not work. I put the biozone back in the room after trying this product for three weeks and I am sleeping well again!...more info
So Far, *Extremely* Good! :o) I have been using the Multitech for over two months now, having used only Bionaire products before, and I am very satisfied. The unit is clearly cleansing the air as advertised, and I get very satisfactory airflow (especially on Maximum setting). (I wonder if those users who complained about the Airflow had not read the instructions and removed the tear-off flap from the filter-cartridge before turning the unit on!?) Look people: it's NOT a Fan; it won't blast air out like a wind tunnel. What it does is a thorough job of cleaning and filtering, and unlike other ionizer/filters, it actually kills germs and mold with ultraviolet light as well. I strongly recommend this unit....more info
OK for small spaces I could find one of the most important info about this product only on the side of its box. This device is rated at 71CFM at (probably) the max speed for the fan, which translates into about 20m complete air recycle for a room of just 15 by 10 by 9.
At max speed, the unit is too noisy to be left on in a small bedroom.
The ozone/filter does a good job with odors in relatively small kitchens, and the built-in timer is quite handy.
Update: After about 3 months of use, the fan control burned out, filling the room with an acrid smell.
Update: Received replacement unit. One of the clips holding the front panel is broken off, and unlike the previous unit, turning the ionizer on does not produce any "ozone smell" (meaning is probably broken). I wish I could change my rating to 2 stars....more info
Wonderful Product I bought this purifier due to all it's features. I have severe allergies and wanted a purifier/sanitizer that would work. I tried the Sharper Image Ionic Breeze (worthless junk...do google search and look at all the reports on it) it it didn't do anything.
I do agree that this unit needs a stronger fan but that doesn't mean it wont purifier the air. I let this run in my friends house who has a black lab (that I'm severly allergic too) and within 1 hour, you couldn't even smell that "dog smell" and I could breathe just fine. Since I could breathe without using my inhaler, I new the air was getting filtered. Since the smell was gone, the sanitizer feature was working great.
I also used it for a poker party I had with cigar smokers. No it didn't clear the smoke and the smell instantly, but by the next morning, there was no smoke and not a hint of cigar smell in the air! It works just as it says and I recomend it highly.
I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I do agree that it needs a stronger fan but it works just as they say....more info
Don't recommend, period! Bought three of these based on reviews from their own website. Should have known better. My air conditioner filters more particulate. The filter intake barely could hold a tissue in place, so you can tell there is really not much volume passing through. Go with a better known brand. The filter medium is just too thick and air does not easily pass through. The ozone feature deoderizes, but I wanted air purification....more info
