      Comments about Winix PlasmaWave 5300 Air Cleaner:

      I can tell this air purifier works very well because I monitor indoor air quality with a Dylos particle counter. Cooking related particulates are cleared quickly when I increase the fan speed. Otherwise, I keep it on low. Leds do not dim enough in sleep mode, so I've put tape over them.

        Comments about Winix PlasmaWave 5300 Air Cleaner:

        I use the Winix PlasmaWave 5300 in my bedroom to remove dust and pollen from the air for relief of allergy symptoms.
        It is super quiet while moving a lot of air.
        It is easy to adjust manually.
        It also automatically self-adjusts according to the air quality in the room.
        There is a slight pulsing sound but not enough to bother me.
        It's a little hard to move because there's no lifting handle and it has a hard slick slippery surface.
        Good value AND good quality!
        I'm very happy with the product.

          Comments about Winix PlasmaWave 5300 Air Cleaner:

          I haven't owned it long enough to know the life span yet. I bought it for a fairly large bedroom in an apartment. The room is next door to an apartment with a smoker and the smoke smell leaks into my apartment. It has helped to ease the smell, but not entirely. It would probably work better in a smaller, more confined area. But no complaints. It definitely helps and is very user friendly and easy to set up.

            I have this in my bedroom, running 24/7. My 2 dogs sleep with me, and I needed to reduce my allergy symptoms. I love the display that tells me the air quality, and I don't mind when it occasionally gets noisy in the high speed mode. Sometimes a dog will stand in front of it, and the air quality immediately goes into the red zone. It's hard to tell about my allergy symptoms, but I feel better knowing that this is good for my health.

              Comments about Winix PlasmaWave 5300 Air Cleaner:

              The Winex 5300 is used in one of the bedrooms. Most helpful is the auto sensing feature which really seems to work. I turn this on at night and the unit runs on low until it senses lower air quality then increases the fan speed until air quality returns to an acceptable level (for the machine that is, the level is non adjustable.) Shaking a pillow case in front of the machine will cause the auto feature to activate and increase the fan speed so with this un scientific test the feature seems to work well.

              At low speed the unit is almost inaudible. Its run at number 3 all day then on auto at night.

              The air quality in the bedroom stays high with no visible airborne dust.

              As a suggestion, it would be helpful to have the setting switch illuminated so it can be found in the dark or low light situations. Especially since its a flush mounted pressure type of switch.

                Comments about Winix PlasmaWave 5300 Air Cleaner:

                Prior to buying this unit I have done some research and it looked like this model is the best option in the sub-$200 range. Once I had a chance to run it for a couple of weeks, I am convinced that it is. Compared to Honeywell and other department store brands, it occupies little space and is actually very quiet. I can't hear it on the lowest speed setting, and it is barely audible in a very quiet room when running at the next higher setting. The air quality sensor actually seems to work as the unit kicks into high gear whenever something is cooking nearby, etc.

                Compared to a Honeywell 50250, this unit offers a more attractive design, and is much more space-efficient being a tall vertical setup vs. a round keg. The quality of plastic also seems higher. As far as noise, there is simply no contest here: this Wimix sounds quitter on the highest (non-turbo) setting than Honeywell on the lowest one. Just by looking at the two units side-by-side one realizes that Winix is a generation ahead.

                Given that I only had this thing for a few weeks, I have not had a chance to test how long the filter will last. The price of the replacement ones, however, seems reasonable versus the competition.

                The only thing I am not sure of here is the plasma wave feature. I obviously can't tell a difference in the quality of output air due solely to this feature, so I am neutral as far as it goes, and suspect that it could just be a marketing gimmick.

                The lack of a remote is a non-issue – once you turn this thing on, it just stays on forever.

                        Seems to work very well, is quiet and actually attractive. My sinuses definitely feel better and it reacts almost immediately to any scents that enter the room. This is my second unit - I bought it for the living room after using one in the bedroom for about two weeks. My Mom who has asthma had purchased it two weeks before me and has a significant improvement with her breathing. Even the doctor noticed that she has no wheezing any more.

                        This product is certainly very quiet; doesn't bother us at all to have it in the bedroom. It's also easy to use and access to the filters is easy. I'm not sure, though, just how effective it is. I got it because my allergies were flaring up during our abnormally warm winter, but after 3 weeks or so of use I'm still suffering, though maybe not as much as I was before. Other reviews have touted almost miraculous results for allergy sufferers; I haven't experienced that, at least not yet.
