      Comments about Winix PlasmaWave 5500 Air Cleaner:

      We bought this hoping it would help us with odor and poor air quality (mostly pet odor) in our basement. While we've been tackling it with other measures, but within hours of opening and turning on our Winix we saw improvement. It is really helping to make the space liveable down there.

        we have a 1500 s.f. loft and have used this continuously in the last month. we move it around (relatively easily although a carry handle would be ideal) the space and it's made a noticeable difference in the air quality. also, the plasmawave tech really helps restore the air from cigarette smoke. for the price, you can't beat this. highly recommended.

          Winix 5500 review

          By Xiaoheng

          from USA

          Comments about Winix PlasmaWave 5500 Air Cleaner:

          I brought a Winix 5500 from www.sylvane.com on April 27 2012, the product was received by May 2. So the shipping service was incredibly fast even though I had ordered on a Friday night.

          This is actually my first air filter so I had no expectation as to how effective it actually is. Prior to purchasing I did some research online and almost all the reviews I went through were positive so I decided to give it a shot.

          The air filter was purchased on April 27 2012, and was received on May 2. So the shipping service was pretty fast even though I had ordered it on a Friday night. Although the unit look a bit bulky in dimension, it actually only weighs about ~3-4 pounds. So moving it from room A to room B won't be too much of a hassle, though I wish they put wheels on them to make it easier for consumers. This unit is very user friendly, the remote consist of five buttons total, very self-explanatory.

          Also, a lot of people have complained about the noise from the machine when the plasmawave function is on. I personally have not encounter this issue. The machine is running very quietly. The air quality detection device does work, and was noticed as soon as I pop opened my door.

          There aren't any real installation work for this machine, just remove the plastic bags, plug in the power cord, and you're good to go.

          As far as pricing, I personally think that it's pretty decent for this kind of functionality and performance.

          Overall, I like this unit, and will recommend it to anyone that's out there looking for a good air filter. If this price is too steep, then you should consider investing in winix 5300. I believe it's cheaper, but with no remote control, and you cannot turn your plasmawave function off.
