happy with this air purifier!
It reduces dust in our bedroom where it is placed. I am amazed how this product has gone beyond my expectations.My husband had sinus problem for years and can't sleep when it attacks so i put the ion401 on in our room,after a day he felt really good and could sleep well, so we're using it up to now.
NOT as great as you think...
i brought this a couple years ago after reading so many "Great" reviews, so in hindsight i was okay to pay for its ridiculous high price att (paying $199+P/H) also thinking itll be well worth it in the end, since there's no on-going cost with replacing any filters afterwards either, (which was another PLUS too.) Along with it being pretty quite while it was on & running. -But this also made me question whether it was actually really working though, since it was a little too quite when it was running.
However, after having it on over a couple weeks, i can honestly say there seem to be a SLIGHT difference in the air. But not so much to say it was drastically enough to pay "that" much for it!! Not in my opinion anyways...
After having it running for 3 weeks straight, the light went off to have the blades cleans. Which was easy enough & pretty straight forward, then once its completely dried return it back into its correct place. After this first initial complete clean, the light tends to go off more often & more quickly since then. So i've just ended up spending more time cleaning this damn thing and waiting for it to be completely dry, rather than having it actually "doing" what its supposed to do instead half the time. Plus it hasn't really ever returned to being whisper quite, as i once knew it to be...
Overall i'm well more pleased with my replacement homedic a/p over this one -ANY DAY!!! Even though i may have pay extra afterwards to replace its filters every few months & might also be 10 times louder than this one...i honestly don't think this particular air purifier is even really worth its asking price on todays market, which i've seen for $224!
All going well so far and wouldn't be without it!
I've had my Ionmax Tower for nearly a couple of years now and have had no problems with it. Notice the difference in the air quality when I've cleaned the blades and have this switched off over night while the blades are drying. I have a dust allergy and can literally feel the dust in the air when the tower is turned off and feel much better when gadget it turned back on and it's doing its job. I got lazy at one stage and left Ionmax off for a few days and the air quality just felt progressively worse.......so won't do that again! I leave it turned on low because my lounge room isn't that big and don't want to overdo the ozone bit. Thoroughly recommend this to those looking for relief from bad air quality and the like! Only thing I must add, I would love to buy spare blades for this so that when I'm cleaning current blades I have a replacement to use. This is the only reason I haven't given this 5 stars.......tried to ring to buy these and got a negative response.
Does the job, quietly and efficientlly!
Spare blades would come in handy when cleaning unit.
Just died, it lasted a year and cost 170.00 and they want 100.00 to fix it...too expensive for a new circuit board. so 270.00 for it with no guarantee is out of the question. I am sure they could fix it for less than that. A big waste of money.
It worked a little bit but never trapped dust only a tiny amount of some black carbon like substance.
no where near as good as the fan type unit filters they definately 90% better, no moving parts it should have lasted 3 or 4 years
Works great, quiet and easy to clean. Works very well in my large living room, and from a stuffy feeling I had before in my house, it now feels fresh and clean thanks to the Tower Ionic air purifier. It's also quite lightweight and compact and easy to bring around. Have had no problems with it since I bought it!
Affordably priced, compact, portable, very easy to clean, quiet
Quiet, energy efficient and does the job
We bought 2 of these, one for the office and one for the bedroom. They make no noise and the only indicator that they are on is the LED on top. We left ours for 7 days before removing the blades and only then could we see how much dust, fluff etc they had removed from the air. We notice a definite reduction in the amount of dust landing on the furniture so they must be doing the job. We're happy.
Quiet, energy efficient
The LED indicators on top are far too bright for bedroom use. You can read by the light it gives off. We have had to put tape over them.
It is amazing to see what the Ionmax picks up from the air. The 3 blades are easy to clean so there is no need for replacing any filters and it removes odours effectively from the house. I use mine in the hallway near the bedrooms and the LED lights are pretty much like a night light due to the brightness of them. It came with a one-year warranty. I am very happy with this product.
ADDIT: I have had this tower for seven-years now and it is still doing a great job. The blades are starting to get a little surface rust but its done a great job.
Inexpensive, warranty, less dust on furniture and efficient odour remover.
