Product Description

Product Description

The Sharp Plasmacluster™ Ion Air Purifier with True HEPA Filter effectively reduces pollen, dust, pet dander, smoke, germs, bacteria, viruses, odors, mold, and fungus in your living space. There is a three-stage filter system including a permanent micro-mesh pre-filter, activated carbon filter, and long-life True HEPA filter, which captures 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns from the air that passes through it. Patented Plasmacluster Ion Technology disperses positively and negatively charged ions throughout the room to safely break down microorganisms and odors (even those trapped in fabric, carpeting, and drapery!). It is an ideal solution for allergy sufferers, asthmatics, pet owners, and smokers, and best used in a bedroom, living room, study, or exercise room. There are 3 manual fan speeds. The unit has LibraryQuiet™ operation (as quiet as 29 decibels, or the sound of rustling leaves) and is ENERGY STAR® rated, so you can run the unit continuously while saving money and energy.

From the Manufacturer

MAIN FEATURES


Plasmacluster ions reduce germs, viruses, bacteria, odors, and mold throughout the room.


Traditional filter-based systems rely on air passing through the filter. Plasmacluster ions can spread to every corner of the room to actively clean.


True HEPA filtration captures 99.97% of pollen, dust, pet dander, and smoke particles as small as 0.3 microns.*
*From the air that passes through the filter


Pet allergens and tobacco smoke particles are typically smaller than 1 micron. With True HEPA filtration, more of these particles can be captured.


Four different capacities to cover small bedrooms up to large living rooms!


Plasmacluster ions are proven to significantly reduce bacteria viruses, mold and fungus.


It can be difficult to see what's in your air, since many airborne particles are not visible to the human eye. This air purifier senses & reports your air quality & humidity level, and automatically adjusts operation as needed.


Sharp air purifiers are Energy Star rated and highly efficient, so you don't have to worry about leaving the unit on all the time.
MORE FEATURES


Plasmacluster ions destroy odors at the molecular level, even removing embedded odors in carpeting, drapery, and furniture.


Ionizers add a negative charge to airborne particles which makes them stick to furniture, walls, & floors. Only Plasmacluster ion technology is proven to effectively kill germs, bacteria, viruses, mold, fungus, and odors.


Humidifiers can help relieve sinus issues, dry throat, dry eyes, and chapped lips. They can also help relieve dry skin caused by psoriasis, thyroid disorders, topical medications, and cosmetics.


The water tank for the built-in humidifier is easily removed from the side of the unit and can be filled at the sink with tap water.

I've had this unit for just a day, so this is a preliminary review based on a minimal amount of time with the unit. For a little background, I have this unit in my bedroom, which is 700 square feet with very high ceilings. I also run an IQAir Health Pro Plus in the bedroom. My main purpose for buying the Sharp was to assist the IQAir during bad air days because the size of my bedroom is pushing the upper limits of what the IQAir can handle.

I use a Dylos DC1100 Pro laser particle scanner to test the effectiveness of my air purifiers. My house is currently running about 400,000 particles per cubicle foot, which is relatively dirty air for my neighborhood. It's a pretty smoggy day out in Southern California today. Running the IQAir I was only able to reduce the particle load to about 160,000. So I set up the Sharp and ran it on high for six hours today. When I came back to test it, my Dylos was showing a reading of 10,000 particles, which is almost a 95% improvement in air quality - not bad!

For my next test, I move the unit down to my office - 150 square feet, so much smaller than the bedroom. The particle count when I first begin the test is 300,000. After ten minutes running the Sharp, the count drops to 25,000. After twenty minutes I'm at 13,600. After forty minutes, it drops to 12,500. It seems to be stuck there. Excellent air quality, according to the Dylos monitor, is 7,500 or below. So 12,500 places it squarely in the "very good' category.

I also tried testing the air coming out of the Sharp by placing the Dylos up right next to the unit. I routinely do this with my IQAir to confirm it's still blowing clean air. The IQAir always shows it is blowing zero particles - completely clean air.

I've tried so many air purifiers due to my allergies but realized how ineffective they were after reading an article about how manufacturers claim it catches 99.7% particles (but don't specify the size of the particles). From the Vornado AQS 500 to the Honeywell, they just didn't help at all and I still found myself relying on Zyrtec and Allegra just to alleviate my headaches.

After a month of using the Sharp FP-A8OU-W I can honestly say this is a really good machine despite the high price. Whenever I feel the my sinuses acting up, I hit the quick clean and my symptoms vanish after 10-15 minutes. It's extremely quiet and has an auto-sensor on how dirty the air is. I thought mine was broken because it was constantly green, but when my cats jumped up on it once it switched over to orange (dirty cats!) which was interesting but it still stayed on low. Regardless, I just hit that quick clean when needed and it goes full blast for about 5-10 minutes or so and reverts back to low which is nice. I don't know if that Ion plasmacluster actually does anything but sound cool but I'm not complaining since this is the only air purifier that actually worked for me.

Overall, I'm pleased. If you are trying to get fine dust out of the air, the FPA80UW is a good choice.

The unit is very quiet on low speed - it sits near the bed and I can't hear it at night, which is excellent considering it is moving 70CFM. Medium is louder, but still not annoying if it is in the same room during the day. High is of course quite loud, but it's moving 350CFM at that speed, so you can't expect otherwise. When the speed is set to Auto, it determines the appropriate speed (low, medium, high) based on what level of dust it senses in the air, and it really works. Making the bed apparently puts dust in the air (nothing I can see or smell), because the fan speed will increase to medium or high. The same thing happens if I shake out an article of clothing in the room, even some distance away.

I think the machine is cleaning the air. I put it in a different room each day while I am at work, and the air does seem to be fresher at the end of the day. It is supposed to have three methods of cleaning the air - HEPA filter, ionization, and a granulated carbon filter. Personally, I don't see how the carbon could do much of anything - it's nothing more that a few carbon granules attached at intervals to the pre-filter. If my problem were VOCs, I'd be looking for a different air purifier. The ionization does work, at least somewhat, based on my nose. The HEPA filter works very well.

There are LEDs to indicate fan speed and whether the ion generator is running. There is also a single large LED that turns green, yellow, or red, to indicate air quality. This LED can be turned off at night so as not to disturb you. The two small LEDs (ion and speed) remain on, but are too small to annoy anyone.

The unit had an unpleasant plastic odor when it was first unpacked, but that disappeared after two days.

Amazon did a quick RMA on the first one which worked intermittently. It probably had a circuit board fault.

This unit is in our large bedroom which is carpeted (for now). I suffer from bad allergies to pollen, dust, and molds, resulting in sleepless nights with nasal congestion, drainage, and sneezing.

So far I haven't woken up with congestion since using this machine, but the pollen count has been low. It runs on the low setting which is very quiet, barely audible, and uses only 4.8W (medium is 20W and high 98W). The air in the room always smells fresh and dry, especially when entering.

One thing that applies to all room air purifiers is that you have to keep the doors closed so that it isn't trying to purify the whole house. I open a window sometimes for fresh outdoor air, but I won't do this when the pollen count is high. I might put a spring hinge on the bedroom door to keep it closed.

Along with a routine of clean bed clothes, vacuuming, washing hair in the evening after being outside with lots of pollen, and nasal irrigation with a neti pot at bedtime, this air purifier should really aid in a good nights' sleep.

I'll update this review in the spring when the pollen counts are very high here in northern California.
