Worst purchase I ever made I feel conned and cheated. I spent over $600 on two of these things because both my daughter and I have bad allergies. After owning them for two months, I have yet to notice any difference in either of our incidences of allergic reactions.
I purchased these things because of the fact that they are silent and the HEPA filter that we used to have was so noisy. Now I'm wishing I had my money back on these piles of junk so I could buy the HEPA filters. I'd rather deal with the noise than have to stomach the fact that I blew $600 on two filters that don't do anything....more info
In Response to the Ozone Paranoids A person earlier said not to buy this product because it produces toxic ozone. Well, that's true, but it's not as bad as it seems. Ozone is toxic and this ionizer produces it. However, ozone is only toxic in large amounts. This product complies with FDA standards (less than 0.05 ppm of ozone) and the FDA (whose regulations are stricter than OSHA's and NIOSHA's) would never approve this product if it was in fact slowing killing us all. The EPA link posted by "Muthu 'MS'" is actually directed towards ozone generators, and this product is NOT an ozone generator.
But then there's the argument that goes along the lines of "well, it's not a HEPA filter and HEPA filters are WAY better! HEPA filters clean so much better and Consumer Report says so." This product does not use a HEPA filter and works nothing like them so it shouldn't be compared to one. Sure HEPA filters are spectacular for cleaning air because they do it so fast, but I happen to hate listening to the loud fan and paying for expensive filters. And for these reasons I bought a Professional Series Quadra and have had no complaints with it.
The bottom line is if you want an air purifier and have no problems with the noise or buying replacement filters, go with the HEPA filters. Your air will be cleaner with the HEPA filter (only if you have it on all the time).
But if you want to buy an air purifier without the noise and the added costs, go for the Quadra. ...more info
Totally worthless As an experiment, I put this cleaner in a closet and blew a bunch of cigarette smoke into it and closed the door. 4 hours later: no change. This thing doesn't do ANYTHING. Buyer beware....more info
This may be harmful to your health-Read before you pay! This device emits ozone,and that is good enough for me to stay away from it. Sharper Image states that it emits low amounts and as per EPA regulations I think. But, why go for an ionic filteration system when you have other universally accepted filtration methods like HEPA. I bet you have a lot of friends like I do who are very happy with this product. Almost always the first reaction you hear on this product is "I smell really fresh air!" Well that is because of the ozone it relases into the air . But, the same ozone which kills bacteria can also kill some good stuff in your lungs or react with them. All I can say is read the following article before you make a decision

We love them We purchased two of these (was buy one get second half off) We owned them now for 2 weeks. After a few hours, we noticed a difference in the rooms we placed them. The air seems lighter, less heavy and congested. Its easier to breath the air, and smells fresh and clear. The family visted us just yesterday and they too noticed a difference in the quality of the air, how clear and clean it was compared to the rooms that do not have one of these. Whether smoke, pet dander, dust, etc it clears it. They are easy to clean, and not heavy so can be moved around as needed. We haven't had them make any noises whatsoever, but if and when they do I hear all you have to do is clean them which is a snap. Asthma and allergies run in my family, and to have those members notice a difference is truley amazing. My grandmother wheezes and looses her breathe quite fast just moving or being in our house with our two dogs. She did not wheeze once! We plan on investing in one for her as well. They are approved also by the Asthma and Allergy Association. ...more info
