Daikin air prufier keep the air clean. Especially when using our gas heater. Air purifier clean the air and its on all the time . Work quietly. Highly recommend it especially if u have kids who have hay fever. Or nose constantly blocked . Best product on the market.
Purchased in January 2019 for A$550.00.
Good balance between performance and cost
UPDATE June 2019
I's been two years since my review and I can report the Daikin filter has performed flawlessly, I use it every night through the evening turning off only after sleep. If I’m in all day I will turn it on or whenever the house is occupied for a significant time. I’ve cleaned it each year and changed the filters; it captures a lot of air borne material for which I am very glad it performs so well. I purchase replacement filters via ebay at reasonable cost. I will keep this unit using it daily until it stops through wearing it ...
Purchased in June 2017.
I am not sure that this MC70LPVM Air Purifier is discontinued, as it is still listed on the Daikin Australian website.
Anyway, recently purchased, and so far I love it.
Very quiet on the low fan settings,
and the automatic sensor function seems very sensitive.
The unit is a little bit larger than some other air purifiers, but not too big, and is a nice sleek design.
I live in an area that can turn into a bit of a dustbowl in summer, and this unit seems to have enough grunt to cope well.
Initial use - some reviewers noted a strong smell on...

Exactly what it says on the box.
I've had this unit for a few years now and bought 1 for my parents and another one for another bedroom.
Below is the pros and cons from the last few years of use-
1. For its price (went up in market price over the year), it was the most complete air purifier on the market
2. It does what it says on the box. Cleans the air
3. auto is super quiet
4. Has replacement filters so self sustaining for the next 5-10 years depending on your environment. With me putting it on 24/7, the filter seems to last around a year.
5. Lights dim for night time sleeping ...

Feel more healthy and have to clean (dust) so much less!
This product is amazing! I have had one working in my office for some time now and decided to buy one for my home as I have a new baby. When first out of the box the smell is strong ozone smell. If you are sensitive to strong smells I'd advise to run for a day or so in a room where you don't go and keep the door closed. Running the machine on night mode also means the unit will operate without the ozone smell which can make is smell a little like a hospital.
Highly recommend this product.
It really works and good for people who have sinus and asthma. I bought this product after I read the reviews and it really works as per the reviews. The room's air feel fresh. So I would highly recommend this product to everyone who's looking for an air purifier .
It is so great!
This is a very good purifier! Works very quick and 100% do the job.
It is a bit big and gives a smell of a hospital, but this is the only way it can clear the air and kill the germs.
It removes dust, germs, smell. It has autodetection mode. So it decides how clean the air is and works hard or slow as a result. Has many settings and replaceable filters.
But the feeling I can tell you right away that I feel much better waking up in morning after I turned it on before going to bed.
100% advise for anyone! Ignore the size. Ignore the smell. It is your health! Take care.
I am so disappointed - the air smells awful when i operate it
I was talked into buying one of these yesterday and within hours of setting it up, a horrible odour was in the air. It smelt like a strong hospital disinfectant. Thinking it might be start up and temporary, I waited 5 hours before I called the installer and the company I purchased it from. The odour was awful and far from improving my asthma, it actually got worse and I required extra medication. I would be happy to keep it if someone could fix it for me but all my calls go unanswered and they say the general manager will ring me back which he didn't. I cannot believe someone can sell this and make the air smell worse.
I love the concept that it thinks for itself.
I bought this unit for the main bedroom which like the rest of the bedrooms was located in the area of the house where there was limited opportunities for a regular healthy air flow and I was not home a great deal. I don't regret purchasing this unit. The dust reduction has been great, the air fresher and the feelgood factor that I haven't experienced since the house was new returned. I love the fact that I can set the unit to auto and it thinks for itself and will cheerfully cycle as demands require. Recommended by the Asthma foundation...in most countries is a bonus. True the price will shock you but then for a unit that thinks for itself and is virtually maintenance free, you are paying for convenience. I do tend to replace the filter pad every year. I believe that replacement packs for the corrugated filters (pack of 4) ranges from about $55 to nearly $100, a case of buyer beware as to where you purchase. But that said 5 filters come with the unit. I find if I use a chemical at one end of the house, the sensor on the unit picks up on it at the other other end and fires up to filter the air. The added bonus is that during summer you can hit the remote control and the fan creates a breeze. So far their hasn't been a day that I regret purchasing this item. I purchased the unit three years ago.
It just keeps getting better!!!
This Daikin Air Purifier is just great. Different look to the previous models - I guess you would say it has been modernised! Love the look but more importantly - love the fresh smell it creates in my home. I purchased on for combined lounge/dining/kitchen and one for main bedroom.
Modern Looking and Very Effecient at purifying the air.
Some blemishes on the front cover of the unit. Same for both units. To difficult to photograph to be able to get a replacement front cover from Daikin.
Ticks all my boxes
Here's my list of requirements which this air purifier met:
Cost - for its price, and having ~10yrs air filter included, I'm guaranteed to save $$
Reliable - I am a loyal Daikin customer and this product displays quality materials used
Looks - it is designed to be discreet and matches most house deco. It can be a bit big for some, but to cover +40m2 space, I wouldn't expect less
Sound - set on low it IS actually really whisper quiet. My son's a light sleeper and he can manage on low setting. On turbo it is quite loud.
Performance - wow it...
Questions & Answers
Does it kill viruses?
Why has theMC70LPVM been discontinued?
I don't think it has been discontinued - Daikin still lists it on their website : https://www.daikin.com.au/our-product-range/air-purifiers/air-purifier
How often do you have to replace the pleated filter model kaco1784E or can you just vacuum clean it as they are costly to replace frequently
The corrugated filter is usually replaced every year in my home. The air filter does have several pre-filters and the others are washable or easily maintained. The unit comes with about 5 extra filters. Replacement corrugated filters can be purchased online at competitive pricing. Ultimately, the frequency on how often you personally will need to change your filter will depend on how dusty your home is and how you maintain your home.
