Sharper Image Ionic Breeze GP? Silent Air Purifier with Ultraviolet Germicidal Protection
Ionic Breeze is The Sharper Image's most popular product, with more than one million sold. An ACNielsen national survey that showed that Ionic Breeze is America's most trusted brand of air purifier. ACNielsen also confirmed Ionic Breeze enjoys the highest customer satisfaction ratings among all major brands — as demonstrated by repeat purchases by Ionic Breeze owners (and purchases by dissatisfied owners of competing brands); and in ratings for "exceeding expectations," "good customer service" and for "delivering on promises." Compelling features include silent operation; efficient air cleaning and odor reduction; no replacement filters; ultra-low energy use; lightweight, attractive, low-profile housing; and 24-7 air cleaning. Ionic Breeze air purifiers bear the Seal of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA). AAFA is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with allergies and asthma; their Consumer Product Seal program helps consumers assess the validity of manufacturers' claims that relate to these issues. AAFA's Medical-Scientific Council reviews independent research and awards the AAFA Seal only to products with claims that they determine are, in fact, truthful. The AAFA Seal was awarded to Ionic Breeze GP? and Quadra? Silent Air Purifiers; the Seal bears the important statement,"Ionic Breeze is proven to reduce airborne allergens and irritants including dust mite allergen, pet dander and cigarette smoke."

Cleans 24-7! Turn off a noisy HEPA air cleaner and air pollution goes right back to where it started very quickly. The fact is that all air cleaners should run continuously but noisy fans and expensive 200-watt power demands make that impractical with those big HEPA machines. Silent, low-energy Ionic Breeze GP, in contrast, is designed to run continuously, especially in the rooms where you spend the most time at home, like the bedroom, dining room and even the family entertainment center.
Save money! With Ionic Breeze, there are no messy, expensive filters to find, buy, store and replace. Instead, Ionic Breeze GP is an electrostatic precipitator that charges airborne contaminants and traps them on oppositely charged stainless steel collectors that wipe clean with a cloth. It is powered by only 27 watts and compared to high-watt HEPA machines, it pays for itself in less than two years. Save hundreds of dollars in each future year.
Cleans the air and kills airborne germs! The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America's Medical/Scientific Council reviewed tests on its performance and awarded its AAFA Seal bearing the statement "Ionic Breeze is proven to reduce airborne allergens and irritants including dust mite allergen, pet dander and cigarette smoke." Its built-in UVC lamp also means that airborne bacteria and viruses that enter the unit are killed. Essentially no germs survive passage into the Ionic Breeze GP.
Listen..........!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This product ROCKS!!!! I have one of these, the professional quatra, and the small bathroom one. First off I'm a smoker. Although no claims are made it does not only reduce smoke and smell you can't even tell the room was smoked in within a couple hours. I have had parties were 3-5 of us would huddle in one room and smoke all night long. The follwing day after returning home from work you can't tell at all, not even a slight hint it was smoked in. There are VERY QUITE!! It will make noises like what the other person said once a month and that indicates to clean it. You have to turn it upside down and then up right several times to get the inside static wire clean by a bead that travels the wire. After smoking I clean it the next day and remove all the nasty brown gummy build up. Through em in the dishwasher once every other week, put em on a vent for an hour to dry and your good to go. REALLY worth the 3 min. of effort to load them in the dish washer!! I can't over state how well these things really work. P.S. Buy them from sharper image outlet. With prices at 65% off they simply can't be beat!!...more info
Noisy after 2-3 days! I give this product zero stars for making noises every 2-3 days, meaning it will need a cleaning every 2-3 days. Finally had enough of this annoying machine that I threw it in the dumpster. Air purifiers from "The Sharper but Noisier Image" will never set a foot in my house ever again! Stay away!...more info
