Rated 5 out of 5Â by Shopper76 Great filtering and quiet operation
I bought this system with the claim of being able to filter antigens and has quiet operation. It definitely lives up to that claim and for a very reasonalbe price. I have been using my units for 2+ years now. We have 3 cats and 2 dogs in the house and use 1 unit in the cat room, 1 unit by the dogs, and 1 unit in the baby room. It really cuts down on smell and allergens! My asthma does great. I like the multi-speed feature, fast to quickly filter the room and slow to keep things super quiet if needed. Medium is great in our house for typical operations. We change filters about 3-4 times a year. Would recommend!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Dusty shorter-lived filters than expected
the filters work very well, but filled up much faster than we expected ---according to Vornado's own change schedule. And the "full" filter light never came on. We'd been smelling dust and wondering if we were imagining things. Meanwhile our allergy symptoms gradually got worse, thank you very much. We finally opened the machine and used our eyes. But...we like the machine's performance so we'll continue to purchase filters and not rely on the indicator light. BTW we use the filter in a room with no pet access, so we can't blame the kitties for this one.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by M1002H Traps a lot of allergens, but with some drawbacks
This purifier traps a lot of allergens and has helped limit my asthma attacks. That being said, I bought the Vornado AQS because it said I would only have to change the filters 1-2 times a year, unless the filters had visible build up. I leave my purifer on all day, every day, on the quiet setting in my small bedroom. My door is always closed and I have a separate filter on the air duct. So, though there are two cats in the house, my purifier is primarily working only in my bedroom. I have to change the filter 3-4 times a year because it has a lot of visible buildup after that rather short period of time. So, while I'm happy with the performance, I'm not happy with the value.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Nanny2four This is an excellent product
I have had this filter system for a few years now. It works super. We have 2 large dogs in the home and it does an excellent job. Some people complain they have to change the filters too often. Obviously their homes must have a lot of dust, hair and allergens or the filters wouldn't be full. Filters are well worth the price for the job it does. Our grandson has asthma and we think it works great for that.
