Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Snowflake Works good for the money
Don't know how well the air purifier is working for some of my allergies but it does work well for fragrence or smoke allergies. I have to put it up to the setting right below turbo but it seems to help a lot. I leave it run at its own setting which is usually on low but if I need it to filter out something such as smells when I put it up on a higher setting it works really well. Considering its filtering a room bigger than its rated for it seems to work really well. I always complained of the house having an odor (not sure what or why, its clean) but I don't notice it any more. I also have the same type of air purifier in my bedroom and I do believe it has helped with my allergies in that room. I'm overall very happy with it, I guess that's why I have two.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by basflute Unbelievably quiet!
We purchased this air filter to replace a different brand which was much louder and has become squeaky over the years. I can't believe how much quieter the Winix is! I also like the fact that it has an auto sensor or the unit can be manually set to the desired level..

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Raymond I really like the auto detection sensor feature, as it saves energy as it cleans the air.
I was having a dust problem near my pellet stove and now that I have set up the Winix Plasma Wave Air Cleaner it has seemed to cut down on that problem. I can’t say that it has solved it completely but there is a big deference.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by pturzy At first GREAT, but then...
I don't like reviewing items until I've used them for a period of time because you never know what can happen. When I received this it was WONDERFUL! There is really nothing to it. Basically unpack it, plug it in and let it go. Plus it comes with 4 filters. I turned it on in a guest room where there are 2 litter boxes, before I left for work, and when I got home, late that night, I could immediately tell the difference in the air. I have 3 cats and I was hoping it would help with the litter box smell. I clean the litter box out 3 or 4 times a day but I can still smell it when I approach that room. Now the smell was almost gone. As days went on I could definitely tell the difference in the dust pile up...or should I say lack thereof. Usually I have dust build up almost the next day to two days after cleaning. I didn't see dust build up for A VERY LONG time. I did not dust in that room, on purpose, just to see how long it would take and I want to say it was almost a month before I could see any hint of dust. I was ecstatic. After 3 months, I changed the filter and boy was the old one beat up. I attached a picture of the old one and the replacement. WOW! So now I'm at the 'but then...'! After changing the filter I just don't feel that it is working the same as it did the first 3 months. I've checked to make sure I have the filter in correctly and the cover is on correctly. Before this I would spray hair spray in the room adjacent and would hear it go on to full power (I keep it on Auto). If one of my cats go #2 :-) I would hear it kick on to full power. I just do not notice that anymore, I think the smell is back and the dust is still okay but I feel like it's building up a little faster. It could just be me so I am not sure if this is really a fair review. Again, I WAS IN LOVE until I changed the filter. I really would prefer that the smell of the litter boxes go away more than the dust issue but I knew it might not work as good as the model that is specifically for pets however this one was the deal of the day buy so I jumped on it. I do agree with other reviewers that it would be nice to have a handle at the top...I can see where one could have been added. But it's not a deal breaker. Also for those who say it is loud, when it is on full power yes it can be but not to where it is annoying AND I haven't seen one like this that is not loud at full power. Would I recommend it...sure I would. I would tell someone if they saw it on the deal of the day to go for it like I did. I can swallow paying the lower price for something that might not work as I hope or is intended to before paying full price. So that is my story...I hope it helped but I doubt it did! Have a great day everyone!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kat4Fun Worked for Asthmatic Mom
We had a tree fall through our house and then rain soaked the things where the roof caved in. So lots of fiberglass, dust, mold, etc. got into things--even the things we saved. We had some of those things in our finished basement where we also have our guest bed. When my Mom visited last she had a mini-asthma attack. It could have been from areas of exposed insulation in the ceiling, or it could have been the stuff from our tree incident. Regardless, after we did a deep cleaning and closed up some of the open ceiling areas, my Mom visited and all was well. She said is runs very quietly. You can tell when it kicks on the filter out something, but that process doesn't last long in our experience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dano works ok
I bought two of these units and I am pleased in general, The only issue I had with one of them was that the LED to show that it is in auto mode does not work. I tested the air cleaner and it does work as it is supposed to so it is just the LED that does not work. Since it was just the LED I did not return the unit. It is nice and, quiet I have it in my bedroom and even in auto mode it does not keep me awake and I have it about six feet from my bed. I was very happy ( did not realize it came with) it had a couple extra charcoal activated filters included. Works good in the medium sized bedrooms I have them in. I also got my order delivered faster than I expected.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JTOPKS Great air cleaner
I have had this working in our house, in living room, for over 4 months now, so I could give it a real test period. Overall we are very pleased with it and works as directed. It does clean up the air properly as guests do not even recognize we have 2 cats until they see them. The auto-sensing air quality feature is very cool as it automatically filters air faster as needed. This is very quiet usually except on super high. I would highly recommend it as I did a lot of research on true air cleaners and this is the best bang for the buck.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CTLB These are great air purifiers
My apartment has mold issues in the wet areas (I have to mop the floor, walls and ceilings weekly to keep the moldy smell down). Also, the bathroom air vent connects to the 2 apartments above me. The humidity from my and my neighbors' shower as well as "other" smells in the bathroom makes my apartment seem dirty almost all the time. After running this air purifier in my bathroom for a while I noticed a significant improvement in odor control - both man-made and mold coming from my bathroom. When an event happens, it kicks into high gear and doesn't slow down until the air is clean. I love it! I have another unit near my kitchen to handle cooking smells. Life is good.
