Rated 4 out of 5Â by leslee7 accomplishes the job sufficiently
The room I use it in is actually larger then the recommended room size & it does the job well. I was amazed by the amount of pet hair trapped in the filter! A good indication that it will help people with allergies. For pet owners in particular, I would suggest a once a week filter check to clean out the pet hair to keep unit running more efficiently. I like that it is very quiet and senses the amount particles in the air and then adjusts the motor speed to it - thus being a great energy saver! If you want fresher air to breathe then this unit will serve you well.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by RinaSan I like it
I have pollen allergy and when I was offered to try this product I was excited. I keep it in the bedroom to make sure the air is clean enough for me to sleep because Summer's can be pretty miserable. It does make a difference. I do not wake up in the middle of the night coughing and with stuffy nose. I like the way it is designed as well. 4 speed settings and a night time setting as well that makes the fan really quiet. We do not have a central air conditioner in the house that I can hook HEPA filter too so it is a great thing to have in an old home.

The Vornado AC500 is an excellent air cleaner. But there is one thing that can be improved. The dirty air goes in on the front and blows out the back. If you put this near a wall, you now have the clean air blowing into the wall. So I turn it around and have the front facing the wall and the back facing the room. But the back is not as pretty as the front. So in that sense the unit could be improved. But other than that, it works faithfully for 24 hour per day operation on a relatively quiet mode.

We purchased this unit two and a half years ago and use the auto shipping of filters. Well unit motor started making loud noises and I call Varnado, great customer support, I could send back on there dime or cut cord and take picture of that and serial number. I cut cord and send via e mail. We just received new unit and that all happened only five days ago. OH, new filters in replacement unit! Varnado lives up to warranty and staff I spoke to were great.
