Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 177 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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.. December 26, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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! March 26, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 22, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by just what I nedded this little air cleaner works good I bought one for my camper and one for my family room they do the job very well ,I may order another for my bed room. you can't go wrong with this product. September 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 9, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Actually removes pet odors well! Was seeking a solution for cat box area aromas generated by a beloved aging cat who is missing the litter box from time to time-after reading about this unit, we gave it a try. It works-very well. Others have remarked about the "AUTO" setting-it detects odors and speeds up the fan as designed. Forget about sprays, candles, or attempting to mask pet aromas-run your indoor air thru this gizmo!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is the best money I have ever spent! Quiet! Works just as stated. Keeps the dust under control so I don't need to clean as often. I have put this in my bedroom and during the day I take a time out just to go in, feel and smell the cool clean air. I was amazed at the difference from my living room (no air purifier) to my bedroom. Will need to buy more to put one in every room. Love this product and can't believe that I have been this long without it. I did research all of the other products and purchased this one because of its ratings and warranty. Again, Great Product. I highly recommend buying one. April 10, 2013
