Good balance between performance and cost

It’s been two years since my review and I can report the Daikin filter has performed flawlessly, I use it every night through the evening turning off only after sleep. If I’m in all day I will turn it on or whenever the house is occupied for a significant time. I’ve cleaned it each year and changed the filters; it captures a lot of air borne material for which I am very glad it performs so well. I purchase replacement filters via ebay at reasonable cost. I will keep this unit using it daily until it stops through wearing it out.

Filter Light

The “change filter” light had not come on, although the filter clearly needed changing. This model is quiet enough for sleeping, when fan is on low.

Exactly what it says on the box

Pro –
For its price (went up in market price over the year), it was the most complete air purifier on the market
2. It does what it says on the box. Cleans the air
3. auto is super quiet
4. Has replacement filters so self sustaining for the next 5-10 years depending on your environment. With me putting it on 24/7, the filter seems to last around a year.
5. Lights dim for night time sleeping
6. Detects odour quickly

1. It’s a bit bulky but it’s designed to do much bigger rooms than a standard bedroom
2. Turbo is loud.
3. Front panel discolours. The front panel seems to be made of a different plastic to the body. Overtime, it discolours – this is away from direct sunlight.
4. needs around a week before the “ozone” smell disappears when new out of the box.
5. Auto is usually too weak to “clean” the air of dust if there is no odour to kick start the fan.
6. No adjustable sensitivity.
