I am very disappointed with this purchase. I have only had it slightly over a month and it doesn't work. When I contacted Great Vacs about having it replaced, they want me to send it in for warranty work and they want me to give them an additional $29 for return shipping. That is ridiculous!! When a product breaks down that soon after the purchase, I should not have to be required to pay the shipping.

This product is amazing! We've had it for a few weeks now and everyone who has come over has commented at how fresh our house smells. It has eliminated pet, kitchen and stinky basement odors. We painted the interior yesterday and didn't have the lingering smell that we typically had in the past. Don't hesitate - buy this product!

The box is cute and appears to be constructed well. But that's about all it has going for it. Description says it will clean up to 3500 sqft. I'm not dumb. I know better. But my whole house is only 1350 sqft and all I want it to do is clean the air in the great room. It doesn't. Instructions say to set it up as high as possible, tilt upward slightly, and keep a ceiling fan running for best results. Did all that. Instructions also say you can't use the ozone system while you're in the space and not to re-enter the space for 1 hour after turning the ozone system off. So you kinda have to treat it like a flea bomb everyday. And it's loud. Not just a little loud. We have to turn it all the way down, nearly off, to be able to watch TV. The washable/reusable filters are what sold me on this unit but after using this product I would very strongly recommend sticking with the units that use filters that have to be replaced. They work so much better.
I have severe allergy problems that result in my constantly needing to "clear" my throat and make sleeping difficult. What a difference with this air purifier! And it makes the house smell fresh and clean. Wish I had found this sooner.
Purchased after Hurricane Isaac to help with mold since I have COPD. I very pleased with this product.

The HEPA filter keeps the interior very clean--and this is important in these machines. The noise is minimal. Be sure to order extra ozone plates and clean and replace them often to keep the machine performance from degrading. The ionization is steady, but ozone output decreases with dirty ozone plates. One of the best designed machines of its type. DO NOT expect this machine to be an air filter. It is an air purifier--works differently than filters. Much better, in my opinion.
It looks like a good unit. The fan has adjustable speed and the ozone function also has a dial but the dial doesn't work. It's always on high so the only time I can use it is when my family and I are gone for a few days because the ozone is WAY to strong. I didn't try returning it or anything so maybe I just received a faulty unit.
A family member bought this product direct from the company and paid over twice what I paid for this purifier through Overstock. It is small and compact, but produces a fresh smell in the air that has a positive effect on anyone with breathing problems or allergies. We have even found that the air conditioned air in our home feels cooler than the thermostat shows by using the purifier. The plates are very easy to install and you can choose the fan speed and ozone feature by separate dials. This purifier works great in homes with one or more pets because it removes any odors associated with them. We think the smell in our home makes us feel that we are at the beach - even in the cold weather.! I have found that there is much less static electricity in our home and my hair because of this purifier. This produce is a great asset in any home and I highly recommend its use. Our family members have now purchased more than 4 of this product.
seems to work fine (no allergies so difficult to truely judge)
