I was just wondering why this being the most expensive version doesn’t seem to have a digital display? Or does it? Apologies if I have missed it but would be good to know! Cheers
No the purifier does not have a digital display.
On the top it features the Power Button, Check Filter Light, Mode Button, Plasmawave on/off button, Timer and Child Lock Buttons.
All the Buttons other than the on/off Buttons have an illuminated meaning above them. And the Filter light will illuminate when required to change the filter.
The front of the unit has a led light bar that illuminates Green, Amber or Red according to the conditions in the area the unit is working in. The Fan speed will adjust accordingly in the Auto mode. I’m a bit of a tech head, and I haven’t found the lack of a digital display terribly important, other than adding unnecessary extra cost. In my experience with electronics, digital displays are normally the first item to fail.
Hope this helps.

Looking for Air Purifiers?
Read the reviews for Ausclimate Winix Ultimate 5 Stage AUS-9500
If all the models address pet dander, what is the advantage of the pet filter in the Winix zero + pro 5 model. Also, does it blow out cold air? Thank you.
Hi Karalyn, Russell here from Ausclimate.
You are correct that each of the Winix air purifiers are suited to remove pet dander.
The advantage of the Zero Plus Pro pet filter is that it provides another layer of filtration. A pack of 12 x filters comes with the unit. They are disposable and should be replaced each month, or as required depending on the amount of pet dander, as well as other airborne allergens.
Although I don't have pets, I find them great because current renovations have caused excess dust in my home - yes, it did a great job of keeping the air in our living area very clean.
Each pet filter has an adhesive edges that stick to the outside edge of the pre-filter.
The Zero Plus Pro also has advanced PlasmaWave technology that assists to neutralise harmful viruses that affect people AND pets.
All Winix air purifiers blow out 'room temperature' air after the harmful allergens have been captured within the high quality filters. Very happy to discuss further - Russell 1800 122 100
Thanks Russell, what is the pet filter layer aimed at removing that the other layers wouldn’t already remove?
Hi Karalyn, all models will effectively remove pet dander and other airborne allergens. But having the additional front layer of the dedicated pet filter allows quick and effective capturing of the pet dander, as well as the many other airborne particles instead of being captured by the other filters - yes, helps to also prolong the life of the other filters too. So, in summary they really assist the purification process by doing much of the heavy work at the front end. Regards Russell
Has anyone used this model ( WINIX ZERO+ PRO 5 ) to help with reducing pet dander?
Does it also help with pet smells?
1) Is this model quite? Or noisy?
2) does anyone know what are the major differences between this and model 9500 ?
The Winix Zero+ 5Stage is very quiet. As far as a comparison with the model 9500, I can't recall the specific differences but the specialist consultant advised me that this model was the best option for me at the time.
Hello Any (and John). Russell here from Ausclimate. I think you would be very impressed with the new Winix Zero Plus. Whilst I'm also happy to recommend the Winix Ultimate AUS-9500 for its efficiency of removing house pollution such as mould spores, dust-mites, dust, smells, airborne VOCs and other allergens, there are a couple of advantages with the Winix Zero Plus. It is quieter throughout most fan settings (Turbo fan speed is not so quiet, but its ideal for cleaning and turning over large volumes of air). It also cleans larger room areas and slightly cheaper to run - having said that, its so cheap to run that its doubtful you would notice any impact on your electricity bill. Good to run 24/7. I find this model great to use in just any area of my own home - great for the larger open plan areas, but also great for the much smaller bedrooms - nice and quiet to give that peaceful night's sleep.

Does this purifier use any chemical?
Not sure what you are meaning by chemical, but it doesn't put out chemicals into the air, that would defeat the purpose of having an air purifier. The plasmaswave technology doesn't put out chemicals into the air either.
jsljustin is correct. The Zero+ Pro does not use chemicals.
However if you wish to have any clarification please dont hesitate to call me on 1800 122100.
