Product Description

Sanyo's new Air Washer air purification system suppresses airborne bacteria and germs utilizing an exclusive electrolyzed water technology, removes dust and allergens, reduces pollen and neutralizes odors. Sanyo's electrolyzed water technology has been tested and proven effective in suppressing airborne germs, bacteria, odors, allergens and mold through third party certification institutions including RTI. In addition, electrolyzed water has proven effective in significantly reducing the level of viable airborne germs and bacteria, according to an independent research institution in the United States. Simply add tap water to the water container and the chlorine ions in the tap water are molecularly split through an electrolysis process in the unit into electrolyzed water. The electrolyzed water attacks the protein spikes in bacteria and inactivates the spikes so they are unable to attach to human cells. The units' 3 directional (upward, leftward, rightward stream) airflow emits the purified air and extremely fine electrolyzed water mist to quickly clean the air throughout the room. A High Performance 4-stage HEPA filter removes 99.97% of airborne particles and allergens, reduces airborne pollens with allergy blocking filter and fights common odors including pet dander and tobacco smoke. The sleek design is simple to operate, has an automatic timer function and filter replacement indicator.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )

Product update 1/5/13 - Sanyo has discontinued this air filtration system but Panasonic bought them and has a replacement filter for it that FrankieBoy was kind enough to post links to in the Comment section of this review. He has been kind enough to post a link on page 6 of the comments here. The filter is model #6161580870. Hopefully Amazon will begin to carry this soon because the price is pretty steep and Amazon always seems to do better. I've been vacuuming my filter with a good strong vacuum cleaner and that seems to work so far but a replacement will be needed in the future. I love the air cleaner and want to continue using it. A big Thank You to FrankieBoy, for researching and posting the link here!

The thing I like best about the Sanyo Air Washer Purification System (besides that it does a great job of purifying the air) is that it has a nice sleek look to it and doesn't detract from the room decor. It has a handle built into the top, making it easy to carry (15.9 lbs.) and it's pretty quiet as air purifiers go. It has a 4-stage HEPA filter removes 99.97% of airborne particles and allergens. The other thing I really like is that the filters can be cleaned with a vacuum cleaner and are supposed to last for about 4 years. (You'd want to use a HEPA vacuum cleaner or you'd defeat the purpose.) I called customer service to ask about the price of replacement filters and they told me the suggested retail price is $69. That's pretty much in line with other filters I've researched. The customer service people were very helpful in answering questions about the unit which I count as a big plus.

I don't know if the electrolyzed water technology is just a gimmick or not, but the unit does a good job of cleaning the air and removing odors from any room that I place it in.

I have been using this product for over 3 weeks. All members of my family have allergy. We live in Redmond, WA. This product works as advertised.

Pros:
* Removes odor out especially when we had Asian food in the room with this air purifier
* No more foul mold smell in the room (it moist and humid during winter)
* Operates quietly

Like to see improved in the product:
* Water tank is small and requires refill once a week (I run the air purifier on medium - 8 hrs a day x 7 days a week)

So far it is a good buy.

*** (Updated on 18 May 2010) ***
* Still runs great 8 hrs x 7 days a wk
* We have placed this device in a 11x15 room...still is very effective
* Knock on wood...no Allergy and cold symptoms so far.
In Redmond, WA for April 2010 was Moderate and in May 2010 has been low
(Source: [...])
* Refilling the water tank once a week is now a routine!

*** (Updated on 19 Jun 2011) ***
* My family had allergy free year. Thanks to this product!
* Around end of May 2011, my son developed allergy symptoms. And, in next few days the filter light flagged on.
* Now searching for the best place to get the replacement filter (not easy to find one). I didn't get the life of the filter as stated in the product document (4 yrs). However, we have been running the product for at least 330 days x 8 hrs. Still a best buy.

I was looking for a humidifier and air purifier. Check
I was looking for a compact yet does a good job. Check
I was looking for a quiet functioning unit. Check
I was looking for a low maintenance. Check

There is an odor sensor where you can set it to low, med, high. Its neat because it apparently can detect most bodily odors when your near by and I tried, it turned itself on to cleanse it. 5 stars!

The filter supposed to last 5 years in a normal environment. Filter can last longer since it can be vacuumed. Replacement part is maybe on the high side, but after 5 years who knows what will come out next.

I set mine to Auto, It has a 1, 2, 8 hour timer. I don't like timers so mine is constantly on.

The Fan Speed can be set to Auto, Low, Med, High. The Med and High makes noise, however I have it set on auto. When I plugged it, it starts off Med but after 30min or so it has been low ever since. Yay clean room.

The Humidifier tells you if you need to change the filter or add water. Neat! If required there is a Power Mist setting where it can blast continuous mist if your in dire of humidity. BTW the water is electrolyzed?!? so basically the mist is a clean mist!!! Good Job!

The size and the style is just great! It doesn"t feel cheap and it matches my living room.

So In my opinion I give it 5 stars! Yay!

I give it 5 stars, I have left the thing on for a month now, I have less dust and a clean neutral smell. I don"t like chemical cover up or that candle stuff so it works for me!

Product is a nice idea, BUT the replacement air filters are no longer available. So it is an expensive disposable. Talk about bait and switch!
Sanyo says that the product has been discontinued.

I have been running this unit since August 4, 2011. I was very satisfied with it until today when the replace filter light came on. I then was very unhappy to find info on Amazon discussion forum that the replacement filters have been discontinued by Sanyo. That makes the unit worthless. This happened to me with aother brand of air purifier that I purchased several years ago. I had to just throw it out. I will be very reluctant to buy anything else from Sanyo. Being stuck with an appliance used less than a year made useless because of no replacment part.
