OZONE DANGER!
There is one major thing wrong with this product’s advertising that could end up in a lawsuit. The PLASMA WAVE technology states that it DOES NOT release ozone. If you have researched exactly what it is then you will find out that it does indeed release ozone. They claim not as much as other air pur...

Air Purifiers...are they worth it?
We did a lot of digging through reviews and Consumer Reports type publications, and settled on Winix 5500-2 as the best purifier for the money. It has multiple filtering stages (and one of the filters is washable multiple times before it needs to be replaced) and has a large air throughput while also being very quiet (these are generally the characteristics to look for in a purifier).

Started researching air purifiers..... Lots to learn about them. Anyway, settled on 1 and got it. It's been 4 days and we ...

Fantastic Machine, Automatic, Very Quiet, Great looking
** 3-week update ** After a few weeks a clicking noise developed in the fan when running on the sleep (lowest) speed.

Best purchase I've made since Covid19 started
I got this because I have a big dust problem in my room. Every since covid19 started I've been working from home in my bedroom almost every day. I unfortunately shed hair and skin particles like a dog. That's caused my room to become very dusty, to the point where if I don't keep the window open I f...

I own a Winix 5500-2 Air Purifier. I let it run constantly on its next to highest speed, and I turned off the PlasmaWave feature for the safety of my cat.
