    Lemon or a very expensive fan?
    Writing this on 9.12. while the quality of air in Seattle is the worst in the world due to wildfires. Bought the unit yesterday. Initially, the light was red, then amber, then blue, which is what should happen as the unit purifies the air. When I moved it to another room on the upper floor, it remained blue, and that made no sense. This morning I moved the unit back to the living room, and to my surprise, never went to amber or red. So I took it the garage, a structure not attached to the house where the air is as bad as it is outside. Light? Blue! So I either have a unit with a bad sensor, or this thing is just one nice looking but very expensive fan.

      I had a terrible chemical smell in my apt. I was getting rashes and a sore throat from it. I’ve been running the purifier non stop for several weeks. The smelled has been reduced by 90%. My allergic reactions have been greatly reduced as well.

      No Difference
      In all honesty, I wanted to Love this product. I read reviews and watched plenty of videos on it before making the plunge and purchasing it, since it’s not a cheap buy. However, I’ve had it for a little over a month and I feel there is no difference living with it or without it. I don’t know if an air cleaner would work better for people that, smoke cigarettes inside their home, for people who have pets indoors that shed a lot or for people that just don’t dust their house. However, none of that is applicable to me, therefore I don’t see a diffence. I do have allergies and lately my allergies have acted up more than usual, or more so in a long time, and as I would think the air cleaner should be helpful for that, I feel that the air cleaner has done nothing. I am dissapointed as I did want to love this product and hoped for it to be so beneficial, though I feel it hasn’t whatsoever. P.s. My partner things the same thing. The two stars given is for the hype on it and the cool look to it.

        Works great!
        This air purifier works really well. We unfortunately have a smoker in the house, but this keeps my bedroom smoke-free. Also, when my husband passes gas, the air quality light turns red so I know it’s working!

          So far the machine is doing its job we are pleased with its performance thus far. Only been using it for several days now as we just bought the device. It is portable so we have been moving it around the house and its doing its job. Nice and quiet even at the higher fan speed it is pretty quiet and acceptable level of fan noise. I say noise but not irritating/loud noises. Yes we would recommend this to anyone wanting a decent air cleaner.

          Received product fast and in perfect condition. It works as described and I was surprised at how well the charcoal filter absorbs odors and the pre filter catches small flying insects. It works so well that I bought a second one for use in another part of my house. I highly recommend this product.

          After reading many reviews on Winix 5500-2 air cleaner and comparing this unit to others I chose to purchase sight unseen. The air cleaner has ran continuous in the automatic mode for several weeks without failure. The unit has surpassed my expectations of cleaning the air and the low sound level at night is NOT distracting.
