I did a lot of reading about the negative ions etc. Reading that some hospital operating rooms use them to help prevent infection made me give it a try. So after a month I can state it improved my wife's sleeping incredibly. For years she's awakened several times a night blowing her nose from allergies. She has refused meds. It doubles as a white noise machine. She sleeps much better and so do I since she's not blowing her nose all night. We use this unit in a smaller bedroom 16 x 14 and it works fine. The only minor gripe is the bright lights on the front but duct tape cured that. Highly recommend.

As far as the pre-filter being pricey. My wife could tell it was not working as well so I cleaned it. I've only cleaned it twice and not replaced it in one year with an air blower from an air compressor. Blowing out the way it came in. It's not cheap as stated but how much is 6 months sleep worth? People spend thousands on special beds etc.

It's like a divorce, expensive but worth every penny in the end.

I work in Kabul, Afghanistan and where I live smells very bad and the air is very polluted. This unit has been a lifesaver. My roommate used to wake up each night coughing and sneezing. After ordering this unit we are both sleeping better. I also ordered this cheap pre filter to prolong the life of the main filters
Cut-to-Fit Carbon Pad for Air Purifiers B000U204W2

Only two weeks after deploying this unit the pre filter is covered with dust.

Also, I only run the plasma cluster function as needed as I am not sure of the health effects of breathing excess ions. This unit does not produce ozone which is detrimental to health.

This site has excellent info on air purifiers and plasma cluster units.

I opted for this unit over the cheaper Korean plasma cluster units as my roommate lived in Korea and he does not like Korean products because he says they are cheap rip offs of Japanese products.

I didn't know I was allergic to cats until my girlfriend brought home a cat, well, I didn't know I have asthma either... Long story short, I only have problem breathing at home and it got worse when we moved to an apartment with no windows in the living room. I needed to use my inhaler almost everyday.

I did some homework online and decided to go with sharp because of the reviews and the reputation of the brand. I picked it up at my local bestbuy 3 weeks ago... Guess what? I haven't use my inhaler once since! It's freezing outside so we couldn't open the windows to air the apartment out as often as we like. But once you turned on the purifier for 15-20 mins on high speed, my apartment actually smell fresh as if we aired out the place. My girlfriend also noticed less dust and pet hair on the furniture since we have the machine.

At night, the noise level is barely noticeable on low and med, acceptable on high. If you are concerned about the cost and availability of the replacement filters based on some reviews online, you shouldn't be! They last a lot longer than most other purifiers out there and you can find them easily online. As long as you vacuum the prefilter at least once a month, I can see how the HEPA filter can last up to 2 years as claimed by the manufacturer. Honestly, in the age of global e-commerce, I don't see how anyone would have problem finding any products online.

If you have any indoor allergies like me, then this purifier is for you. This purifier will pay itself off with all the allergy medications and cleaning supplies you save!

I live in Florida, where the summers get humid and nasty. I have really bad allergies in my apartment primarily due to the outside pollen, allergens etc. But, also the apartment has carpet in the bedroom and living room, which I'm sure doesn't help.

I bought this Sharp Plasmacluster with HEPA air filter for this reason, as it got very good reviews.

I must say it is a very solid product.

First of all, even on MAX fan speed, it is much quieter than the central A/C in my apartment. When I set it to LOW or MEDIUM fan speed, I can barely hear it running at all.

Secondly, I must say that I do believe my allergies have gotten better, and sleeping at night, I don't get a stuffy nose as I did before, prior to purchasing this unit. It is definitely cleaning the air in my apartment, and doing a very good job. My next step is to purchase a vacuum with HEPA filter, that should help with the carpet issue even more.

Anyways...

I keep the unit in my bedroom, about 5 feet from my bed. Before going to bed, I switch the QUICK CLEAN on. Then I go to sleep, and after 15 mins, it automatically goes back down to MEDIUM fan speed, which I basically keep it on all the time.

The unit is designed very solidly, it has handles on both sides, and has a very solid, premium feel to it.

It contains 2 filters, which can be accessed by removing the front cover. Again, it is very well designed, as it hooks on the top, and clicks in on the bottom on both sides -- easy, and elegant.

The 2 filters are:

- The HEPA filter (according to Sharp this filter should be replaced every 2 years -- WOW!
