Users’ Positive Comments

  • It has a remote control and an odor sensor. You can tell the difference in the air quality and you have to dust less.
  • It has 3 types of filters; the pre-filter, true HEPA filter and PlasmaWave filter. It’s great to get such volume of filtration in one unit at a low price.
  • This unit runs whisper-quiet and automatically adjusts its speed.
  • This unit does an amazing job of clearing odors and dust from a room.
  • It is lightweight and it looks good in the room.
  • This Electrolux is well worth the money if you have a larger area with its ability to move a lot of air and its CADR specs are impressively higher than some of these high-priced things that rate half as good and do little more than a walk-in closet.
  • You can leave it at auto mode and it runs 24/7 without making so much noise.
  • This unit picks up and clean very large particles like pet’s hair and it will not lose suction over time when the filters get covered by dust because it also intakes air from the bottom.

Users’ Negative comments

  • The fan has to set on high and the front panel has to come off for it to clean anything at all.
  • The unit can’t suck anything through it on low power.
