Great after the plastic smell goes away

Comments about Vornado 18' x 18' Room Size Air Purifier:
Easy to set up out of the box and quick set up in the room. It is a bit big but it is not terribly loud. The only complaint I have is that when I first set it up and turned it on.....there was a strong smell of plastic that was coming out of it, and it was only when it was turned on. It lasted a good 2 to 3 days before it subsided....

About Me Budget Shopper
When my True HEPA Air Purifier arrived, I decided to put it to the ultimate test straight out of the box- the pet's room. After all, if it couldn't handle the really tough job, then it probably wouldn't do the easier jobs. I placed the unit in the center of the room, plugged it in, and turned it on. Immediately, I could literally feel the particulate matter moving past my face as it was being removed from the air. A few hours later, you would never know that the pets were ever in that room. I moved it to other rooms in the house, and by day three, my whole house smelled fresh and clean.The unit is easy to operate, and the filters are easily removed and replace(an absolute must in my household.) The only drawback is that the unit is very loud when running on high speed.All in all, I would highly recommend the True HEPA Air Purifier.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
best air purifier around
from Vernon, CT
works great, keep an eye out for index to install new filters. about every 6 month as expected. Helps big with my asthma.
Great Air Cleaner
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.
Gone Through Two in 12 months
I first ordered this product in Jan, 2014. Two to three months after receiving the product, the fan began making loud squeaking noises. I called Vornado and they promptly replaced the original purifier that I ordered. Fast forward to November, 2014. The fan on the replacement unit has stopped working all together. The unit has power but the fan will not run. I'm calling Vornado again today hoping that I can just get a full refund. Since this is the second one that has gone bad in 11 months, I have no confidence in the product. I would not recommend purchase of this item.

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.
Really like it
from Omaha, NE
This is my second Vornado Air Purifier and I do really like it. My ONLY con is that it isn't as sensitive to the light as I'd like. Sometimes during the daylight hours, if it is cloudy out, it stays on night mode. It is for use in our bedroom and I am actually lulled to sleep by the soft noise. Definitely would recommend to anyone with allergies.
from carson city,nv
I only bought this model because the old models were not available. I do not use the "sleep option' becaue I do not use this in my bedroom. The "dust option" is either too sensitive or I have no dust! I only hope this model lasts 10 years as one of he old models has done.
