An excellent purchase. Posted by: from: Los Angeles on First, this machine is great at removing particulate matter from the air. No more dust, cat hair or dog fur floating around my bedroom! This also means I am sleeping so much better - always a plus. I don't wake up feeling Then there is the odor issue; I don't smell cat or dog anymore, and even normal cooking odors are a thing of the past. I've cleaned the 'filter' once in the last month, and yuck, the amount of stuff this machine has removed from the air is scary! The mild 'ozone odor' is only really noticeable on the highest setting, and after a day or two - you don't really smell it anymore. If you have a lot of electronic devices that constantly getting gooped up with dust and hair - this is just what you need. I also bought the compact model for my room-mate and she has nothing but praise for it.

Not for Asthma Sufferers Posted by: from: South Carolina on This product claims to turn smog and ozone into clean air but it actually EMITS ozone making it bad for asthma sufferers. Allergy sufferers may see relief but even small amounts of ozone will aggravate asthma. We purchased it thinking that it was different than the others since it claimed to convert ozone into clean air but the owners manual says differently towards the back. Here is the link to the Ionic Pro manual. http://www.ionicpro.com/pics/ip500_manual.pdf (see page 14) We purchased the Ionic Pro Turbo but the manual reads exactly the same as this link. Asthma sufferers, look for air purifiers that are approved by the American Lung Association. There are better alternatives.

Works! Posted by: from: Chicopee, MA on I have pets: 1 dog and 2 cats. Pet dander was a concern. I have company that smokes cigars and cigarettes. My pets, company, and I needed good breathing air. After doing all the research possible, I purchased the ionic turbo. I have no buyers remorse. This unit simplys works great. The only thing you really need to know before purchasing this unit is: 1. there is general maintenance required. You do have to clean the blades biweekly if you run it on "high." It's very easy. Maybe 10 minutes. A freind of mine did not completely dry it before reinstalling the blades. He plugged it, short circuiting the unit. He had to send the unit back. Big pain. 2. There is an ozone smell. How much ozone is converted to pure oxygen is uncertain, but sure sounds good to me. If you do not think you can get used to this smell, then reconsider. I have heard of a few people that actually get headaches or nauseous to the electronic wiff of ozone. I got used to it within a couple of days. Now it's fine and just confirms that it working as it should. I'm going to accumulate enough points and buy one for the master bedroom, too. May be one for the basement!

Once this is done, it is done! Posted by: from: florida on Shortly after a year (1yr and 4mths) the Ionic Pro stopped working. The problem: It turns on and after a few seconds it turns off. I called the company and they told me that it is not under warranty and that device can't be fixed even if I wanted to pay for the repair. They told me straight, "you have to buy a new one"! They don't sell individual parts. At $170 this purifier is garbage. I recommend researching the product's perfomance on online blogs. Search for" Ionic Pro turns off after a few seconds" or "ionic pro turns off" see for yourselves. Better yet call the company and ask them what happens after the warranty period ends and if there are parts available for purchase.

Air purifier is superior to my other brand. Posted by: from: Childersburg, AL on We have had one TA500 for 2 or 3 years and another brand for the same length of time. The two really cannot be compared. The TA500 really performs well. This is the reason we purchased another one. When we clean the filter (we are alerted when it needs cleaning), we see what could be in our respiratory system. We can see and tell that the air purifier really works.

Works well, compared to others, and is QUIET! Posted by: from: utah on Like most the reviews, it does need cleaning often, but I notice that if I clean not only the blades but wipe down the inside string in the back with a damp cloth and the other parts, I don't have to clean it as often. It does make a noticeable difference in our house when it is running, I picked mine up for 100$ which helps with the value for price for me. Performance is awesome, everything else I rated good, although I haven't had another purifier to compare it to. IF I were to but another, I would probably stick with the ionic pro turbo since I know it does the job.

I like it, not sure how effective it really is. Posted by: from: Atlanta, GA on The Ionic Pro Turbo seems to work well at removing dust and whatever that dirt looking stuff is that you wipe off. I clean my collection blades every Friday and there is quiet a bit of dust it collects weekly. I think the claims of what this product actually does is greatly exaggerated. For example it says that it converts smog and ozone into pure oxygen. If this was so eaisly done then why are all cars not required to have these type of filters? In the back of the owner's manual it also says that it omits ozone during operation? Also claims to capture and destroy cold germs, viruses, bacteria. If this product worked that well it would be considered a miracle product and everyone would be buying them!! All in all I like it because it does collect dust and dirt from the air because I see it when i clean the blades every week. How effective it actually is I do not know, but I like the gentle breeze it creates on the night stand by my bed. One more note -- the owner's manual does not tell you this but when you turn it on it operates continulously for about 1 hour then it cycles on and off, the frequency depends on high, medium, or low.

Must have if looking for any sort of air purifier Posted by: from: Van Vleck, TX on I owned an Ionic Pro Turbo Air Purifier for about 8 years, yes, the same one for 8 years. I bought it when my son was in the 5th grade and his allergies were getting the best of him (along with his faithful dog that followed him everywhere in the house). I'd bought it at our local Wal Mart at the time as I was desperate to try anything that could assist the pills and sprays my son had to take. It has proven to be every bit worth what I paid for and wouldn't trade it for any other purifier out there. I have used it throughout the whole house in those 8 years and it has performed awesomely for us. I have used it during all the viruses and bacterias my kids have gotten, putting it in there rooms to keep them from spreading their germies, moving it to the TV room when they were tired of being in the bed. I've had it in mine when I had the flu (my husband didn't even get the flu from me and he wouldn't get the flu shot) or other viruses, I or my husband had. It has been a lifesaver in MANY ways!! After cooking fish and shrimp, or for other unwanted odors too, I would move it to the area and it would start doing it's job. I didn't have to clean it as often either, but probably should have. The smell it gives after it cleans , which was not that bad, I felt it just gave the area an extra clean smell, it didn't bother me. Needless to say that it broke after it was dropped different times, which at that time, I went back to Wal Mart to buy another but I guess they don't carry them any more. I am certainly going to buy me another, now that I see they are reasonably priced. I recently (last week) bought a Holmes Air Purifier/Ionizer with a Hepa filter from a resale shop, which stated was new and I eagerly came home to try out my bargain-----No, no and no, I don't think any other will come close. It just blew air (loudly) and the hairspray smell I was trying to get rid of was still there in the SMALL bathroom! The quietness of the Ionic Pro Turbo has spoiled me, you can't even tell it's on and I did like the blue light, it would serve as a night light for my son, although I would cover it when it came in my room.After reading all the reviews I couldn't help but to share what a great product this is. It's light weight too, so you can take it with you when you travel. If you are considering buying one, I say go for it. If you treat it right it will perform great and I am proof that they do last a long time.

Can't say enough good things! Posted by: from: Erie, IL on This product is terrific. My wife and I can’t say enough good things about it. We have had it for just over a month, and cleaned the filters for the 1st time this weekend. We were a bit surprised to see how much it pulled out of the air, and we keep our house very clean. We haven’t noticed the “ozone smell” people have mentioned, the house just smells…clean. We have a big dog (125 pound rottweiler) and before we got this product, from time to time we noticed a “dog smell” in the house. Now that we have been running this, the “dog smells” are a thing of the past. Another great thing about it, is how quiet it is. Even on the highest setting. If you couldn’t feel the air movement around it, you wouldn’t even know it’s on.

Shock Posted by: from: Manhattan, KS on I have had it for one day and i instantly recognized the dramatic change. I am allergic to cats and I have one, I would always have to take claritin or any other allergy medicine but with this ionic pro turbo, i noticed within the same day i wasnt struggling to breath, i wasnt sneasing or having allergic reactions. This is the first time my cat has hung out with me the whole day and not one sneeze out of me. Its also quite and out of the way and i am going to buy the second one for my bedroom.
