i gave this a 4 because i don't like the air sucking from the back, it has no remote, it's expensive, and the lights don't dim when the lights are off, in fact the top ones stay on.
i chose this one over winix because sharp invented the plasmacluster and i think they are stronger, and you can turn the stream on.
i chose the humidifier because i do need extra moisture in the winter, the hepa showed it had a longer life and you can wash the pre-filter.
on low, you can barely hear it, you have to put your ear up to it. you know it's on because plasmacluster clicks. sort of a light ticking sound, like a tiny arc. but constant.
on med, its louder, more like a soft computer fan, it's a hush from a distance of about 3' away, like a spring breeze. the cluster however changes tone - on and off in 1.5 second intervals. the sound is similar to that of a quill pen scratching across paper. annoying, but not overly so. you can't hear it from a distance of about 10' but it's there. i was hoping the louder fan (i like a little white noise), would hush it out, but the cluster just gets louder.
on max - it's a bit over bearing to listen too, like a hair dryer.
on pollen - it surges high and low, like a rolling wave. it's hypnotic and distracting. the instruction are confusing in this mode and quick clean where you need or don't need water in the tank. it seems to work without.
on auto, it stays on low unless its needed to be faster.
the odor detector works, i had to use it like chloroform and place it in a tissue of the sensor. vinegar made the green light blink. wintergreen alcohol made the unit angry and the lights turned orange to red. so that seems to work
i haven't used the humidifier yet, it doesn't hold a lot of water, so i don't have high hopes for this. as an air cleaner the room is fresher - keep in mind for the first 6 hours or so the room will smell like a cross between a dept store and a pool. a deep chlorine smell. it is absorbed by the unit though.
plasmacluster has many claims - removes static, makes your skin moister by placing a layer of water molecules over the skin and prevents evaporation (i find that hard to believe). they say it kills some viruses, mold and smells in the air. it can even clean the scent from cloth. i did test that last one, i have a beaver skin that had a perfume scent in it. and in 20 hours that perfume is gone. so if you have a lover that left a perfume note or pillow case - that scent will be gone quickly.
someone complained about asthma and plasma - no issues here... however my eyes are very dry. someone mentioned that their air seems to get dryer with the plasma on. and this also seems true. with the door closed in my room, i started with 50% humidity, now it's 40%. which is probably why my eyes are dry.
oh and though i mentioned it, turning the lights off only turns the decorations off in the front. not the top lights, though they look dim, they are bright enough to cast green circles on the ceiling. it's rather annoying. i would rather have everything turn off when the lights go out. you still need the panel on to tell you your out of water. though the tank on the side does seem to have a window. the water basin btw looks tricky to clean.
I live in Montana, and we've been surrounded by wildfires that started 15 July 2017; I am also asthmatic compounded by other *severe* health problems. Initially, I had this air purifier in the living room, but I moved it to my bedroom as the smoke got worse and I had to stay in my "clean room." Granted, I still had to go to ER, do nebulizer treatments, and a Prednisone "burst," but at least I didn't have to become an inpatient, so I am grateful. Yes, I believe having this air purifier in my bedroom helped to keep me alive, because the smoke had gotten so bad.
At this point, I would not hesitate to buy another one.
I have vacuumed one of the filters, since it was needed. Otherwise, it's been running 24/7 since it arrived!
It is easy to operate, easy to maintain, and easy to move around the house, and most importantly, it works!
I definitely recommend the Sharp FPA80UW Plasmacluster Ion Air Purifier.
