Has anyone ever use an air purifier? Does it really works? How's the value for money? I have sinus problems and i was hoping it might help. In today's TheStar, there's a few articles promoting it notably the Honeywell and the Medklinn brand. I'm kinda leaning towards Medklinn (http://www.medklinn.com.my/index.html) since there's no filters to replace or clean and you just turn it on for 24/7 operation.

i have been using the Medklinn brand for about 4 mths now. the reason why i choose Medklinn compared to others is cos i dont need to replace anything and can on for 24 hrs. besides i like the smell of negative ions...after shower smell... calms the nerves.

i use a sharp fu-60se and have found that it does effectively clean air and trap dust pretty well, havent tried other brands before, but i have 3 fu-60se's throughout my house, works pretty well even in large rooms. you do have to do some simple cleaning of the filters every few months though, no problems running it 24/7 for several months on stretch.

yes, it's very quiet...no noise why i like a lot..well being wise, it helps to clear my nose a little when it's very hazy...also it helps that i'm taking high quality food supplements...

so if you have sinus problem, take supplements and get an air-filter...combat the problem from within and outside.

not sure if the filters can be replaced, it doesnt come with a spare and is not supposed to need replacement.

it cost me around RM8-900 when i bought it, i think prices have gone down. not sure if the model is still available.

mine can be pretty loud at maximum fan settings, but at minumum/medium settings its no louder than the average ceiling fan.

well the one i got works pretty well, during the recent haze, it cleaned the air pretty well removing the smokey smell and cleared the stuffyness with ease.

i got 3, so yeah, i think it works. it also helps to keep the place cool by acting as a fan.

i bought mine at RM8-900, it helps keep the area cool by increasing air circulation, the same way a fan does it. i'm not sure if the model is still in production since its no longer on the sharp official website, but iirc the newer models should perform as well if not better.

there isnt a filter in this model. it just released negative ions. what happens is, dust and other particles will bond with the negative ions, thus heavier, and will drop to the floor. so need to clean the floor regularly.

i do notice that ever since i started using the filter, whenever i clean the hse, the mop is dirtier. so it works!

a purifier both ionizes and further purifies by running the air through a filter, it will more efficiently and thoroughly clean air and it blows air out at a relatively high pressure creating a "fan" effect which helps in keeping air circulated thus cooling the room(one of the main reasons i bought mine... malaysia is hot).

which ever best suits your budget would be the one which is best for you i guess.

But the sharp fu-60se only filter the air and doesn't have the ionizer function sweat.gif
I think most air purifier which filter the air by suction doesn't have such function as well.

my fu-60se has an ionizer... a direct copy from the manual says " features, cluster ion balance control: the unit controls the ratio of negative and positive cluser ions depending in the condition of the room.

Ion control mode: it is said that plenty of negative cluster ions exist in places such as waterfalls or forests in natural enviroment. in this operation mode, negative cluster ions will be released in an increased rate, in order to bring the room atmosphere close to this condition

auto cluster ion mode: the unit will switch between clean mode and ion control mode automatically depending on the amount of pollution in the air detected by the dust and odor sensor"

so yeah, it has an ionizer, iirc they call it an ion plasma cluster.

the medklinn unit does not have a fan and such ionisers works best in a enclosed area

Is the Medklinn ioniser unit safe to be used around camera equipments? I read that it prevents fungal/mould growth, so I thought it'd be useful to be used in the same room as where I keep my equipments. Any thoughts on that?

it should be safe, its only releasing ions into the air, not like its spraying steam or moisture into the air, that would be bad.

I've been thinking of getting the Medkiln as well, not because of this haze issue which only happens a few weeks in a year but because abundant negative ions is something I have decided to be an essential must in this modern world we are living in.

The quality of the air we breathe in cannot be underestimated.

Basically, if you are living in the city, you are more prone to exposure to many kinds of air pollutants such smokes, fouls smells, dust, etc. Air sterilizer, I believe nowadays has become as part of our household item such as tv, dvd or fridge as adding this item will further enchance our life and also people surrounding us to have healthy body mind and soul. My 2 cents. biggrin.gif

Yeah... Anyone tried this Panasonic model?
I'm considering this unit as it is the only model (that i've found) that mentions capabilities of filtering animal dander.
I have 2 cats at home for about 18 mths now, I suspect my cats are releasing quite a bit of dander into the house.

upon reading postings in this forum, i had also initially think of going for the Medklinn but when the AAQ sales rep told me that it releases ozone, i had second thoughts and went to purchase a Honeywell 40200 at RM498...

the sales rep told me that the earlier model of Medklinn had a gold colour top cover but after awhile, it faded which caused customers to complain about it...subsequently, the Medklinn people replace it with a black colour cover...

hmmm....anyone care to comment on this?

Hi everyone,

Have you ever used Austin Air cleaner (now available in Malaysia). the price is RM 2,2xx.00.
Is it the best of choice?

I live nearby KLCC and do not know where i can buy an air purifier/cleaner because there are few things to choose and I have know idea about which brand is the best ? my budget is 2k. I do worry that my newborn baby is sufferd much from dust in our living area.

Thanks for your prompt comment and advice.

Do.

where can I find the Austin Air Cleaner ?
I was hoping to get a Sharp one but I read that Austin is one of the premium brands but I don't really see it being sold locally at places i regularly frequent.
Here's an old webpage that I found. though the models are mostly older ones, the information there is still useful:

could you share with us on your product usage experience with the Austin Health Mate Junior and how much did you purchase it?...

as for my self, i've just bought a brand new unit ENVIRACAIRE TRUE HEPA AIR PURIFIER 50250 from E-bay costing about RM1250 inclusive of custom import duty tax which is far more less than the 50311 which retails around RM2,800 in M'sia..

have just started to use the 50250 and wow!, i would like say this 50250 baby can really churn out large amount of fresh air!. In comparison to my Sharp FU-W53EW, the 50250 is able to deliver higher volume of filtered air when both units are operating at their fullest speed. Of course, at that speed, the 50250 is slighlty louder then the FU-W53EW but you would not much difference when the TV is on.

i don't really notice the Plasmacluster feature found in the FU-W53EW made any impact to the indoor room air quality 'freshness' as claimed by the product as i was led earlier to believe that it could generate the same air attributes that you can find in the mountains / forest! What a let down...

with the no nonsense 50250, i could detect the air odour is much better, probably due to its better quality HEPA & carbon prefilter unlike for the FU-W53EW which smells a little bit like plastic...no joke blush.gif

overall, i'm very satisfied with my purchase of the 50250 and would recommend it to others whom is looking for a good quality air purifier...

alamdamai1,

http://www.amazon.com/Honeywell-Permanent-...47702679&sr=8-2

1) Why are you paying RM1,250 for something that cost USD $170 brand new in Amazon.com??

2) Aren't MEDICAL EQUIPMENT like air filter are tax and import duty free??

ahhh....good question....the 50250 actually only costs USD157 but as i need my purifier to be shipped with tracking facility & insurance coverage in the event it got lost, the 50250 which weighs 25lbs had to delivered with USPS Priority Shipping which costs about USD135...with the exchange rate of about 3.5, the total cost excluding tax would be RM1037....Custom Duty plus Pos M'sia Documentation Fees is at RM155 + 18 respectively....hence total cost would around RM1210 plus 40 for petrol & toll fees...

well, i did not really go indepth into the Customs Tariff whether an air purifier is a medical equipment or as a fan under Suruhanjaya Tenaga classification..nonetheless, comparing to paying RM3K for the old model 50311 in M'sia, it is really worth it... blush.gif

by the way, did i mention the 50250 HEPA filter is a permanent unit and do not to be replace apart for its carbon prefilter? that itself would pay off the initial investment cost over its lifetime usage.. rclxm9.gif

alamdamai1,

1) BTW, I have 2 units at my home.

2) Those 2 units are replacement for my previous 2 units (older model) that lasted about 10 years.

the 16200 is very suitable for small room applications of about 110sqft with 6 air change while the 50250 is specified for 375sqft with same amount of air change...

yes, i've bought the Honeywell 40200 from Jusco Balakong AAQ outlet which is specified for a room size of 210sqft..

i did not purchase the Honeywell 16200 as its specified air change rate does not meet my requirements...

for the 40200, i would say it is much more quieter at full speed even though it is rated at 57dB compared to a stand fan which is very much more louder...

in fact, the 50250 at lowest speed is much more louder than the 40200 when in full speed...

of course, you can always anytime try out the 40200 at AAQ outlets and hear it youself on the loudness of the unit...

happy scouting...

after reading some of the view by expert, i think the good one for air purifying and cleaner must be the Austin and Sharp Plasmacluster.
Honeywell is under the 3rd group and this gives some doubt for me.

But I wonder if the model in the review of the Top Air Cleaner for Sharp is the latest model?

it all very depends on your requirements - budget & performance wise...

if pocket is bit restricted, then go for value for money...

but end of the day, always go for air purifier that has a CADR rating...the higher the better...

i've got the Sharp FU-W53EW with no CADR rating and comparing side by side with my Honeywell 50250, the former only scores in having a highly sensitive dust sensor which is not a necessity...

your can read a brief product review in my earlier posting #51...

hackwire,

Those review are done outside of Malaysia. Malaysia as in other tropical countries has very high humidity. And, we do not run our air conditioner 24/7. In western countries, they have low humidity and centralized air con that do not expose their house to outside air. Hence, all those air ionizer and plasma stuff DOES NOT WORK in Malaysian house. It only works in an air-con room with air-con running 24/7. This is basic high school physic. Humidity discharge ion aka electrical charges.

I had tried air ionizer in my car and it still does not work in Malaysia.

Currently with the hazy condition, will the air purifier/air ionizer good for the people?

You have the point on that too but what is the Best Air Purifier for Malaysia weather?
So we have to separate out the needs according to this :

1) Indoor ( Air Conditioning Room)
2) Indoor (Living Hall Area)

I think for air conditioning room will be for the Sharp Plasma as the living hall we need air cleaner instead of purifier. Air cleaner like honeywell or the Austen in USA....correct me if im wrong.

I saw there a Medklinn product. It can be plugged into the ciggy port in the car. Was wondering how much it cost? Design looks nice too.

Anyone knows how much? Came across this from a leaflet distributed in Maluri Jaya Jusco.

Regards, Joey

p.s: AIKS! "dreamer101" mentioned ionizer wouldn't work in Malaysia due to humidity issues. Oh bummer!

i agree with the statement that all those plasma generator do not effectively trapped or remove micro particles, ie. PM < 10, from the air...as long as you have a HEPA filte, it would do fine....

for the tax issue, don't worry, as it wouldn't cost you much...check my post #716 in the below thread...

http://forum.lowyat.net/topic/433543/+700

in regard to the noise issue for Honeywell 50XXX model, it would be very noisy if you put in a small air-conditioned space..as for me, i'm using it for a large size area with natural ventilation only, aka fans...its sound level is just as high as the fan sound...

thanks alam, i prefer to buy the alen one with ultra violet ray to kill bacteria. i feel for the living hall and large space, the solution to clean air is to ventilate the house every morning and on the fan. as for haze, since i am mostly in the room at night, alen air purifier is the best option . honeywell, i don't think is practical because if your house is always not ventilated than this is alright.

By the way, if the product is certified by the AHAM , you have to tell us the Brand to check in AHAM website whether its a scam or not.

all air purifiers are essentially a fan appliance where their power consumptions are similar to a table, ceiling or stand fan wattage rating, ie. ranging from 40W to 80W to 120W depending on your model....

Hi All,

I received news from AAF factory side that they decided to shorten the pre-launch promotion period from 16 Sept 2009 to 31 Aug 2009.
And will release PurAir 400A to open market. If you still interested on PurAir 400A, you can get it from any Jusco outlet or any AAF distributor.

Once again thanks for your interest on AAF product.
Thank you!

Regards,
RayV

Appreciate everyone's comments. I just landed here a month ago from Hong Kong where pollution is the talk of the town. After reading these links below, there was only one choice for me and my family and that was the very best premium air purifier on the market today at an affordable price. This is why Alen is the #1 Air Purifier in North America!

http://www.consumersearch.com/www/house_an.../air-purifiers/


Added on September 11, 2009, 12:08 amOnly air purifiers like the ALEN PARALDA that use "True" HEPA Media filters should be used. The filter was developed during World War II by the Atomic Energy Commission and it was designed to remove and capture radioactive dust particles from the air which might escape and present a health hazard to the researchers. The "True" HEPA filter was specifically designed to protect the Human Respiratory System. Even the CDC guidelines (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) for the transmission of tuberculosis (TB) recommend that only HEPA filters with an efficiency of 99.97% tested at 0.3 microns particle size be used.

WHAT ARE MICRONS?

A micron is a measure of length: "1 micron equals 1 millionth of a meter!". A particle that is 10 microns or less in size is not visible to the naked human eye.

Examples of some common air contaminants and their size in microns:

* Respirable Suspended Particulates (Industrial Pollution) ..(< 10 microns)
* Human Hair ......................................... (70 - 100 microns)
* Human Sneeze ................................. (10 - 100 microns)
* Pet Dander .......................................... (0.5 - 100 microns)
* Pollen ................................................... (5 - 100 microns)
* Spores from Plants .............................. (6 - 100 microns)
* Mold...................................................... (2 - 20 microns)
* Smoke ................................................... (.01 - 1 micron)
* Dust Mite Debris ................................. (0.5 - 50 microns)
* Household Dust ................................. (.05 - 100 microns)
* Skin Flakes ........................................... (0.4 - 10 microns)
* Bacteria................................................. (0.35 - 10 microns)

Its important to know this vital information to understand which air purifiers can effectively eliminate various contaminants.

I chose the Alen Paralda because its the first air purifier that is completely lead free, ozone safe, and Energy star qualified by the U.S Department of Energy and U.S Environmental Protection Agency. Meaning its extremely energy efficient. You would actually be able to pay for your air purifier in energy savings.

Here are the technical specs:

*Power Consumption: 55W
*Energy Consumption by fan speed: 1: 19W, 2: 29W, 3: 41W, 4: 55W
*Power Supply: 220V
*Controls: Electronic with light touch activation
*Room Size: For use in bedrooms, family rooms, offices
*Clock: Yes, 24 hour programmable (set speeds for when your at home or out at work)


*Dimensions: 7"W x 11"D x 28"H
*Unit Weight: 15 lbs
*Warranty: Lifetime
*Fan Speeds: 4
*HEPA filter efficiency: 99.97%
*HEPA filter life: 6-9 months continuous use
*UV lamp life: 3-5 years
*Noise level: 39 dBA on low - 60 dBA on high

-Extremely quiet operation

- Particles/waste/dust are either eliminated or contained to 99.7% by the highest quality Hepa media filter and they are not hiding inside the machine.

By looking on AAF PurAir200 and Sharp FU-S25E at same price RM699.

Both have Prefilter, Activated Carbon Filter , Hepa Filter BUT AAF have extra Photo catalyst net with 2 pcs UV light? It is good to have?

The next thing is how much cost for Carbon and HEPA filter? I hear AAF is expensive? Any 1 use this 2 product?

>>Reply from AAQ about the Carbon and Hepa cost.
AAF200 HEPA RM82 + Carbon RM78 = RM 160
FU-25 HEPA RM125 + CARBON RM73 = RM198


please comment. Thanks.

According to AAQ, Sharp FU-25 is discontinue model soon?

Currently i have Super 8 at room and car, and i dun think it really work after use it for few year.

At this moment, AAF and Sharp is in my mind. < Rm700 for small room.

Hello All, something to share. Alen Air Purifiers are #1 overall in performance, price and quality!

I have to be honest, I got sucked in by the marketing on the SHARP Plasma-cluster along with some reviews but all were based on price. I went down the track of the IQ AIR based on what I feel was an over rotation to get something that could not be disputed but price was beyond acceptable.

Going back to the SHARP models, there was NO WAY of guaranteeing if the product actually worked unless you had high end testing equipment and do a before after test.

I was absolutely stuck!

The proof therefore was very simple! When I ran the Alen Paralda there was a noticeable and REAL difference in our health, especially my wife's, who is suffering after a 6 year stay in HK. Dry throat, running nose, cough, all gone in only 3 days.

Further, I am now running Paralda in all of my bedrooms and run a model A375 Multi Gas in my living room which is absolutely excellent.

Again, while stating the obvious that you cannot put a price on you and your families health, may I submit that Alen has designed Air Purifiers which DELIVER what is advertised at a price most affordable!

One small note, the Alen Paralda is the only Energy Star Qualified unit I have seen on the market today. The difference in the premium (which again is not anywhere near what you would think), will pay for itself and one big issue that everyone does not account for is noise. The Paralda is so quiet, you wont even know its on.

I hope this helps everyone with their decision as it took over 2 years and making the wrong decisions to bring me to these conclusions.

FYI, I contact AlenCorpAsia, and understand the SE Asian office will be based in Kuala Lumpur and product line available in the next 6-8 weeks.

If you can hold on and make the correct purchase the first time, unlike me, it will be very much worth it.

for Air purifier/cleaners are IQ SWISS (got distributor...in cheras, but expensive...cost more than
RM4K.... ,) and AUSTIN brand (distributor in Seri Petaling, cheaper model around RM2200, and another
model RM4K + ) ....and now Alen brand... others are MNC with multiple products....
not sure whether effective or not... biggrin.gif

and now planning to get a unit for my living room...maybe I want to try those specialist Brands

Everyone is getting into the Air Purifier market these days it seems. I again must emphasize the importance of spending more money on something that is proven, tested and then clearly receives a real positive conclusion from the end users (the consumer).

I have done all my research for over 2 years to come to the conclusion to use Alen Air Purifiers! WHY, they absolutely work, you will notice a difference! They have been tested by the top independent labs in the established Air Purifier Markets and come out on top!

Finally, they are as good as the top Air Purifiers used in hospitals but at a price lower than its closer competitor IQAir! It is my understanding the IQAir 250 sold in KL is around $4200RM and that Alen may be priced around $2880RM introductory which is less than 30% less expensive, considerably smaller, beautiful tower design (if that is important to you) and is whisper quiet (VERY IMPORTANT FOR SLEEPING).

SHARP AP's do not even fall into the high performance range but if you want to compare, they are only priced 25% less than Alen from my initial calculations.

Just like some purchases in life, you should not put a price on your air quality and health, however it is my understanding that Alen Corp. was built on the principal of bringing the very best performance to the consumer so price was a major consideration and why they have been so successful.

I have three Paralda's, one for each of my childrens rooms and our master bedroom and the awesome A375 which does all the hard work in my combined living room/dining area. Each Paralda also covers 400sqft while the A375 handles 800sqft.

Hope this helps!


Added on September 22, 2009, 4:47 pmHello All,

I understand that the new MD for SE Asia for Alen is setting up in KL already and will likely release the Paralda and A375UV for direct introduction in the next 3-4 weeks.

They will be targeting the major retailers as it seems there has been many requested to date.

The Air Purifier should have at the very least a HEPA Filter, UV Filter and Ionizer. Then once you have these it is how these three are tested/perform and the quality of each working together to clean the air. Tested Effectiveness for the highest performers are 98% or greater.

As discussed, you get what you pay for and to be honest, I have yet to see any of the SHARP models measure up in the independent tests.

Furthermore, I have owned one and could not qualify or quantify if it was actually working as there was no improvement in our health however this was not the case with Alen. It made a REAL difference immediately (2-3 days). From sore throats, coughing and nasal problems, all seemed to be cleared up.

I am not knocking SHARP AP's but after owning their top Plasmacluster Model from 2008, I was not convinced it was doing me any good.


Added on September 25, 2009, 9:36 amHello All, this was written by the MD for Alen Asia about HEPA and the other values of Alen and or other high performance Air Purifiers like IQ Air.

Even at the high end of the market with IQAIR & ALEN, Alen is leading the way in providing the absolute best and innovative product at affordable prices. Why would you settle for anything less! See below!

"I think most people need to realize that a good air purifier not only has HEPA but other technologies to remove various pollutants. What really sets Alen apart is we offer a multi-filtration technology I think this will answer most of your questions.

Also note that even in other air purifiers its not the HEPA filter that removes gases from our home but the other little known technologies that are incorporated in to a high performance air purifier like IQ or Alen and this is why different models / options are offered.


Alen filtration technologies can be turned on or off depending on what you're trying to achieve.

1ST TECHNOLOGY

Photo-Catalytic Oxidation

Our A375UV is best in class and only air purifier out there that can permanently remove a wide range of gases, volatile organic compounds, smoke, ammonia, etc.. Other gas air purifiers typically use carbon, which can be a problem because carbon stores gases which can be released at a later whereas our solution permanently eliminates the gas/odor on contact. Exclusive targeted technology was developed to address specific indoor air pollutants by PhD chemists and patented.

The A375UV includes UV-PCO(UV Photo Catalytic Oxidation) technology to reduce the levels of VOC's. The interaction of UV-C light and a permanent titanium dioxide (TiO2) grid serves as a photocatalyst to carry out hydrolysis (ie.to break water into hydrogen and oxygen). As TiO2 is exposed to UV light, it becomes increasingly hydrophilic; thus, it can be used reduce concentrations of airborne pollutants such as volatile organic compounds into harmless elements. Ya, we pack a lot of technology into our little air purifiers! As a safety feature, the UV-C lights and titanium dioxide grid are located on the inner most section of the A375UV.


SECOND TECHNOLOGY

UV Light (ultraviolet)

Our UV air purifiers have been tested to eliminate over 96%,

Ultraviolet light kills microorganisms by damaging the DNA. UV radiation disrupts the chemical bonds that hold the atoms of DNA together in the microorganism. If enough of these defects accumulate on a microorganism's DNA its replication is inhibited, thereby rendering it harmless. If the damage is severe enough, the bacteria cannot repair the damage and will die.

Bacteria are single cell microorganisms that exist everywhere. They are often 0.2 to 5 microns in diameter and most do not create an issue for people. But the ones that can present problems are pretty bad problems:

* Staphylococcus aureus are bacteria known to cause "staph" infections.
* Klebsiella pneumonia is a bacteria that can cause pneumonia.
* E Coli is a bacteria that is often associated with food poisoning but it also exists in the air and can affect the respiratory system.

3RD TECHNOLOGY

NEW Silver Ion HEPA Filtration (Silver has been around for thousands of year and hopefully one of the answers to reduce swine flu)

The new Silver Ion HEPA filter eliminates up to 99% of bacteria, up to 50% of viruses that cause influenza and 99% of airborne allergens. The Silver Ion HEPA filter is coated with Silver Ion, which is antimicrobial. This keeps germs from developing inside the unit and prevents bacteria from being blown into the air. Silver Ion coatings greatly reduce the presence of fungi and bacteria within five minutes of operation. Through a process of denaturation and oxidation, the structure of the enzyme that produces oxygen gets detached and silver ion particles produce reactive oxygen in the air which works to destroy over 650 types of bacteria. Toxic to viruses and bacteria, silver ion is harmless to humans.


4TH TECHNOLOGY

True Hepa

This is the same filter technology as recommended by the US Department of Homeland Security to remove harmful airborne particles in a terrorist threat. Tested at over 1,000% better than the leading ionic air purifier and up to 50% better than leading HEPA type air purifiers by the world's leading independent test.

We have more developments on the way but this should do for now. Thanks for you're question."

Good news for the possible massive flu season. Our new Silver Ion Hepa filters available for all models will be arriving mid-September from the U.S

The new Silver Ion HEPA filter eliminates up to 98% of bacteria, up to 50% of viruses that cause influenza and 99% of airborne allergens. The Silver Ion HEPA filter is coated with Silver Ion, which is antimicrobial. This keeps germs from developing inside the unit and prevents bacteria from being blown into the air.

For me, there are 2 things that I feel is the most important when buying an air purifier.

1. HEPA filter - need to read carefully, make sure is a real HEPA because there are a lot of company claims HEPA filter but actually not, a lot of them are HEPA-alike filter. The main function of HEPA filter is to filter up particles (viruses and bacterial) found in air, and a HEPA filter is able to filter up 99.7% of 0.03 micron particles.

2. Active Carbon filter - used to filter up odour and make air fresh. Once air passes thru carbon filter, it contains a type of smell, some ppl might not get used to it but actually this is the smell of freshness.

The rest of the thing is not so important but is a plus to have:

1. Ionizer - Theorytically it releases negative charged ions to the air which is used to attach to particles in air and neutralise it, sounds good but I think it is more on marketing purposes. The truth is, the mechanism to release negative ion is real, a simple electronic circuit can cause sharp metal blade to produce negative ion easily and release them to the air. The problem is, the effectiveness are very much reduced by the humidity of the air, once the negative ion is released it will most probably neutralised by the water particles found in the air, only small portion of ions go for other particles. The other important thing is the amount of discharged ions, it has to be stay below a recommended amount, too much of negative ions will formed into ozone and this is harmful to lung.

2. UV - an additional protection to kill germs, but most of the germs are already filtered out at HEPA filter.

3. Humidity control - good to have if your room is under air conditioning most of the time, this is to prevent skin dryness. But increased in humidity will reduce the effectiveness of Ionizer, and also promote the grow of fungus and mold in the surrounding area.


There might be some other additional functions which I miss or don't know, before I bought an air filter 2 years back I did some study, and I found out some direct selling company even price their normal air filter at very high price, for eg Amway air filter at more than RM4k with prefilter, HEPA, and carbon filter, at the end I bought a sharp air filter FU2x at RM699.

Reasons are:

1. It is sharp, a well known company, reputation is very important to them.
2. It is cheap, and it has functions I need.
3. Nice design.
4. The same products have been selling worldwide and especially in US, we all know that US consumer takes their right seriously.

At the end, no regret, it works for me and my family, my parents bought Amway air filter at RM4888, tried it and feel the same, both works the same way, same result, but 1 priced affordable, 1 price at MLM level.

Hope this helps.

Virus, good explanation! The MLM model accounts for a company buyer who has aligned themselves with an OEM manufacturer, could be SHARP's factory could be anyone but one thing for sure, the product is marked up accordingly through the MLM commission structure.

Your analysis for making a purchase is typical for a first time buyer of AP's. Sharp seems to have done a very good job of marketing thier product line in Asia. I know as I purchased one about 3 years ago when I lived in HK.

This issue for me is it didnt change the symptoms faced by my wife to the point where I didnt know if it was working at all. That is the big question? How do you know it is working?

The only way to know is a head to head test whereas you take the room to be purified, and do a before and after test with a Particle Analyzer.

The second way is to build your knowledge based on purely independant testing which can be found via the internet.

For me, I couldnt find a Particle Analyzer! The brand in question SHARP would not provide me with any resources showing me that they passed any independant tests nor was SHARP ever awarded anything in the Air Purification Segment.

I went the direction of trusting the independant tests and speaking directly to the top two companies which ranked very high, IQ AIR and ALEN.

Both were forthcoming with their test results however when I priced them both the IQ AIR was about 40% more expensive than the ALEN which has a TRUE HEPA FILTER plus all the benefits listed in my above posts.

Remember as well, SHARP builds everything under the sun, ALEN was build around the challenge of finding the very best, affordable solution for Air Purification. They are leading by example in both setting a new standard for quality, performance and price making them the #1 Air Purifier in America in a very short period of time.

I can understand your process for analysis as it is pretty much close to where I was 3 years ago however my requirement for guaranteed clean air and making a difference for my wife and two children came first.

Make the right decision once and price will not be an issue!

Think many of us are mistaking the genuine MLM company with those do-and-run MLM companies. Without much explanation, I'll provide some links for you to judge yourself. Please compare them in air purifier category but not marketing strategy category, this might give them a fair comparison.

I couldn't find any certified program by 3rd party for sharp. Please provide if you found one.

1. How do i know the Ionizer works? Coz it is very subjective right, we cant see the ion with our eyes

2. How do i know the UV lamp already kaput ? It is lays inside the compartment. Cant see liao if it is kaput or not.

3. Some how i cant feel the different if got this unit in my master bedroom. It is about the same with or without air purifier. Is it mean this product is no good ?

BasSist,

Thanks for the links.

To All, MLM is a legitimate business model and run by legitimate companies. I should know, I used to be in AMWAY in a senior role in North America back in the 90's.

My point is AMWAY does not have the internal qualified staff which can develop products so they outsource the design (give a wish list to a manufacturer/designer) and likely have one product champion internally to launch it.

Secondly, given the MLM model the product retail price must marked up accordingly with the top line down commission structure SO the unit when sold must pay the collective.

Lastly, the Atmosphere AP comes well appointed with features and benefits which play with the Tier 1 AP's BUT at a price tag which plays there as well.

It's priced equal too or greater than the IQ AIR products which equates too over $4000-$4500 RM per unit.

If you wish to do a proper Air Purification in a 3 bedroom home, you would need at least 5 units as each only cover 395sqft each. One for each Bedroom, 1 for each living area or 2 for large living dining area.

Initial investement would run over $20,000 RM.

TCO (Total Cost Of Ownership) would be high as well as both the HEPA and Carbon Filter are priced considerably high at approx. $700 RM & $450 RM respectively PER YEAR!

I am pointing this out to all readers as they should account for both the initial cost and ongoing costs before making the right decision.

There is one company focused on Air Purification Solely, is a Tier 1 top performer, with lowest initial price, lowest ongoing costs and has become the Americas #1 Air Purifier! ALEN!

i had go for alen brand due to the test and reviews i found in the internet. nowadays, if the product got no reviews or testimony by those who had use is basically a marketing gimmick.
I didn't get Sharp or Honeywell in the end is because they lack the information and they don't stack up.

I can understand why Sharp not revealing any of the information to the public. It's because they use a lot of TV advert to brainwash couple with mass production price to lower the price.

Why I love Alen?
It came with Lifetime Warranty. That's confidence . Typical American built product , always lasting and confident.

Added on November 20, 2009, 11:22 pmLatest Testimonial just in from Hong Kong on ALEN Paralda Air Purifiers.

"yesterday, far away from city smog on Lantau Island:
outdoors: 230,000 particles per litre of air (p/l) (and that was a "clear air" day, a bad day sees a million and more)
indoors: approx. 160,000 p/l
in a room with an Alen Paralda, speed 3 for 1 hour before the test: 10,000 to 11,000 p/l
directly at the air outlet of the Alen Paralda: 800-1,400 p/l
(particle size measured > 0.3 micron)

to give these values some meaning: more than 105,000 p/l are considered a health risk by the W.H.O., anything below 60,000 p/l is considered good air quality, high up in the Swiss Alps you will find 2,000 p/l ...

The Paralda did remove up to 99,5% of the particles, and reduced the room particle load by 93% within 1 hour. (120 sq/ft room)
The only downside is: it's quite noisy! But if you run it for 1-2h before going to bed on high and on 1 whilst sleeping it's no problem at all.

So - the verdict is: Alen's Paralda does what it says on the tin.
Very good filtration at an exceptionally good price.
If you want more protection (including particles below 0.3 micron) you'll have to fork out 3-4 times the money for an IQ-Air"


This reviewer did quite a thorough job of putting ALEN to the test and found the new PARALDA model to do what it says it does. Note that in my experience you can clear a room in 30 mins on high speed (setting 4), and then switch to lowest speed (setting 1) and it is whisper quiet. Finally, this reviewer stated what everyone is saying about AP's from ALEN, they are the only PREMIUM (High End/High Performance) Air Purifiers on the market today, priced within your family budget, to implement your own CLEAN AIR POLICY at home.


Added on December 29, 2009, 11:05 amTrue HEPA air filters campared to HEPA type filters

True High Efficiency Particle Arrestant (HEPA) air filters, or absolute HEPA air filters, are those HEPA media filters that satisfy a special standard of air filtration efficiency.

In particular, their HEPA media should capture at least 99.97 percent of air borne particles down to 0.3 micron in particle size.

HEPA type air filters are built by similar principles as the true HEPA air filters. That is, they are paper like media filters that use mechanical filtration to capture dust particles in their narrow passages.

Yet, the HEPA like air filters are not a good replacement for the true HEPA filters in terms of quality (though may cost less). Their media efficiency is often much worse than for the true HEPA filters (as low as 85-90 percent) especially for smaller (less than 1 micron) particles.

Hi friend, where can I find Alen products in Penang? I would like to know more about it and get one for my home. Ever since I bought a new "Mini Tech" from super8, it is not working good enough, may be my the air purifier is small.

Anyway, I have a very bad experience with Super8 warranty claim:

Symptom: Sudden bad smell from Super8 Mini Tech after 6 months used
Claim Warranty: It took more than 1 month and 2 weeks to get a new replacement unit.

My assumption: Super8 warranty claim SUCKS!

It came with Lifetime Warranty. That's confidence . Typical American built product , always lasting and confident.

please do not simply give opinion as of WHAT YOU 'THINK' to judge on what you don't really know about it.

How does Sharp Plasmacluster Ions mechanism work?

here is the 1 of the recognitions

The only additional comment to what I have already described from my personal experience about Sharp is that certain people complain about eye and chest irritation which is due to the amount of free radicals the ionizer gives out. Some people notice a smell of freshness in the air but this is due to the artificial purification of negative and positive ions.

While we and others see the value in having the secondary feature of an Ionizer (where low levels of negative ions improve health ranging from respiratory allergy relief to reduction of headaches), we have the option to turn ours on or off to satisfy this while SHARP's is automatic to support their patented technology!

Scientific evidence clearly shows that a hepa filter is the best choice and there is no scientific evidence showing the benefits of an ionizer yet there is a lot of evidence that demonstrates the harmful effects if this is the primary technology being used.

TRUE HEPA is the preferred, HEPA at minimum, but we at ALEN along with other top Air Purification Brands design and comply with both the Governing Agencies and Scientific Community to engineer and develop to the proven technology which has been evolving but in place for decades! Secondary to TRUE HEPA is UV which reduces airborne germs producing a healthier environment. Lastly is the Negative Ionizer to be used as needed.

Also note, that SHARP's actual warranty is shorter than it's filter life which is really a red flag for me...but if you work for SHARP you already know that!

At this point, if you are unable to agree with what has been stated, compared or produced scientifically or independantly, may I suggest we agree to disagree and move on and let those on the LYN decide for themselves.

I'm curious that which model you are referring to? if you are not sure about the functionality from Sharp, you can check around before making your statements, BUT PLEASE do not make any self judgment to miss-lead or confuse the rest again and again, although some MLM direct sales agents always do that.

Again, we can agree to disagree! Buyers should be fully educated on each product and not mislead in any way.

Alen is America's #1 Air Purifier and was 2009 Respiratory Product of the Year! They use industry leading TRUE HEPA Filtration technology and offer a Premium Air Purification Product at an affordable price.

They were first to be LEAD FREE, ENERGY STAR and OZONE SAFE!

Accusing me of personal gain through simply providing the best overall Air Purification product and advice with a leading industry proven and awarded AP unlike most others is utter nonsense and unlike other AP's we can back it up!

Not just with a LIFETIME WARRANTY but read the thousands of reviews by end users who are not only satisfied but thoroughly confinced of the REAL PHYSICAL results in their homes.

In my experience, consumers will rarely admit to a wrong purchase, it's human nature but when they find something that does what it claims to do they back it up with testimonials. Google ALEN and read all the reviews!

For those who tried the link and had no success! Here it is again.

Hi,
I've just bought the Medklinn 3 weeks ago. TO those that don't know. nagative ions are great for health but Ozone is very bad for the lungs ( good for killing odours ). After using the unit for a week, i find that this unit seem to generate alot of ozone- the metallic smell. True negative ions doens't have much smell at all.
I came across another negative ion generator calle serumi ( from Japan) that promises to generate 1 million ions at 1 meter away. the saleperson has a gadget for measuring ions. Out of curiosity, I brought the medklinn for him to test. His machine measured more then advertised ( about 1.5 million Ions at 1 meter) the medklinn generated almost zilch- 5-10,000 - ions at source ( this means placing the device touching the medklinn)- FYI- in normal air, yo can find 5-10000 ions also.
Therefore, All I got was lots of ozone & no ions.
I bought the serumi and it really made a difference. I sleep better and there is no awful ozone.
I've made my complaints, let's see what they do. My suspicion is that it's not defective, just in effective as it sure generates ozone very well.

QUOTE(btfan @ Jun 28 2006, 09:14 PM)
Has anyone ever use an air purifier? Does it really works? How's the value for money? I have sinus problems and i was hoping it might help. In today's TheStar, there's a few articles promoting it notably the Honeywell and the Medklinn brand. I'm kinda leaning towards Medklinn (http://www.medklinn.com.my/index.html) since there's no filters to replace or clean and you just turn it on for 24/7 operation.

Yes. I agreed. The Ozone smell really bad and I can't stand for it.
It proof that Medklinn air purifier realise ozone and not ionizer. But, their Salesman said the smell is Ionizer smell, it seems like mislead ppl.

Google top air purifiers and you WONT find any ionic air purfiers listed!

HEPA should be the primary filtration method!

The TOP AP's have TRUE (ABLSOLUTE) HEPA filtration which makes them the very best choice.

Having the option to deploy negative IONS via an ON/OFF featured Ionizer on a TRUE (ABSOLUTE) HEPA AP is the way you need to go.

It is actually the ability to add low levels of negative ions to HEPA filtered air which can improve health ranging from respiratory allergy relief to reduction in headaches. Most of this is already handled via the HEPA filtered air but for some individuals such as myself and my wife, we find using the Ionizer option of value when one of us feels our breathing could improve slightly more OR we have a headache prior to going to bed at night.

Add a UV Lamp which kills levels of bacteria by reducing airborne germs and you have one very healthy environment in your home.

Make sure any unit you purchase is certified OZONE SAFE!

Im asthmatic & i've spent thousands of ringgit at Gleanigles on treating myself..So, i decided to buy a air purifier hoping it would make a difference..got a Sharp Plasmacluster one for RM 700. Honestly, i never woke up having wheezing, flu or whatsoever.. It's been 4 months i bought it & it's also been 4 months since i visited the hospital.. I do get very mild attacks of asthma but the inhaler helps..as long i don't need to rush to the hospital rclxm9.gif

It's worth investing on an ionizer for those who's prone to fall sick..

Hi folks,

I've been in the process of hunting for a air purifier, sterilizer, neutralizer or whatever names that you called it. Don't pick the technicality of these words and deluge me with jargons and stuffs I don't understand and don't bother to know. The bottomline is I rather stick with some industry leaders in that field, or at least some well commercialized products from established firms, though some fella might claim that these products are just low end quality stuffs compared to their patronized favourites. Because you know what , I'm just a bloody consumer.

Next, I think all the savvy Internet users like you and me should know by now that we should not take information on the web from granted and praised them like facts. The truth is information is nowadays even easier and cheaper to fabricate to achieve certain purposes. You can flood the entire web with some blogs, articles, sites, testimonials, whatsover that associates with certain unique subjects. Obviously, it's a way to spam for marketing.

Since that www.air-purifiers-america.com has been repeatedly cited by some forum users to project a sense of superiorness of particular brand, should we be questioning ourselves how reliable is this channel of information?

1. http://www.consumersearch.com/air-purifiers/review
" One review source we have featured in the past, Air-Purifiers-America.com, no longer appears in Our Sources. At first blush, Air-Purifiers-America.com seems like a good review source, and perhaps in the past it has been. But one of the principal individuals behind Air-Purifiers-America.com is also a stakeholder in Alen brand air purifiers, a detail that hampers the site's credibility. Several ConsumerSearch readers and people in the industry, including IQAir, have brought it to ConsumerSearch's attention that Peter Mann -- identified in publicly available documents as a principal of Web Stores America Inc., parent company of Air-Purifiers-America.com -- has a stake in Alen, which isn't disclosed on the Air-Purifiers-America.com review site. The Alen website's About Us page begins with the story of Mann struggling to relieve his infant son's asthma attacks, culminating in the formation of Alen Corp."
- Conflict of interest is a fishy thing, at least to me.

2. http://www.air-purifiers-america.com/about.asp
" Since 2003, our mission at Air Purifiers America has been to provide individual attention to every order as well as, the fastest and easiest shopping experience possible. We are dedicated to help providing you and your family a healthy home environment through effective air quality products at affordable prices. We pride ourselves on exceptional service. We will be here to help guide you through your purchase decision and to answer any questions you may have after your purchase such as warranty questions or technical support. "
- Any proud mentioning of the site as industry leading research or review thingy?


I'm not going to waste time to reply anyone to this posting. Exercise your due dilligence before trusting any information, especially when it is directly coming from someone whose agenda is clearly about sales and marketing, albeit through a low cost channel like this forum.

Thank you. And your're welcome.

Alen Paralda selling for RM 2880?? you must be joking.. The unit sells on Amazon for USD 499, which works out to a little more than RM 1500. Considering that Alen has a distribution center in Malaysia, you'd think that even when you include shipping and others, the cost need not be so prohibitive. So forget justifying the price against Amway's MLM prices.

The markup is more ridiculous than the parallel importers of iPads.



QUOTE(Onemorething @ Sep 22 2009, 04:31 PM)
Everyone is getting into the Air Purifier market these days it seems.  I again must emphasize the importance of spending more money on something that is proven, tested and then clearly receives a real positive conclusion from the end users (the consumer).

I have done all my research for over 2 years to come to the conclusion to use Alen Air Purifiers!  WHY, they absolutely work, you will notice a difference!  They have been tested by the top independent labs in the established Air Purifier Markets and come out on top!

Finally, they are as good as the top Air Purifiers used in hospitals but at a price lower than its closer competitor IQAir!  It is my understanding the IQAir 250 sold in KL is around $4200RM and that Alen may be priced around $2880RM introductory which is less than 30% less expensive, considerably smaller, beautiful tower design (if that is important to you) and is whisper quiet (VERY IMPORTANT FOR SLEEPING).

SHARP AP's do not even fall into the high performance range but if you want to compare, they are only priced 25% less than Alen from my initial calculations.

Just like some purchases in life, you should not put a price on your air quality and health, however it is my understanding that Alen Corp. was built on the principal of bringing the very best performance to the consumer so price was a major consideration and why they have been so successful.

I have three Paralda's, one for each of my childrens rooms and our master bedroom and the awesome A375 which does all the hard work in my combined living room/dining area.  Each Paralda also covers 400sqft while the A375 handles 800sqft.

Hope this helps!


Added on September 22, 2009, 4:47 pmHello All,

I understand that the new MD for SE Asia for Alen is setting up in KL already and will likely release the Paralda and A375UV for direct introduction in the next 3-4 weeks. 

They will be targeting the major retailers as it seems there has been many requested to date.

of course we need humidifier, although our weather is not suitable but we always in air-cond room very dry, if not why girl always use lipstick and lotion.


Kent, i think buy sharp will be more better, because sharp more famous than hitachi, even you want but replacement filter also easy to get.

of course we need humidifier, although our weather is not suitable but we always in air-cond room very dry, if not why girl always use lipstick and lotion.
Kent, i think buy sharp will be more better, because sharp more famous than hitachi, even you want but replacement filter also easy to get.

Got this instead of the cheaper KC-930E (RM780) bocz 930E don have the Deodorizing filter, but it has odor sensor, I wonder why the hell they got odor sensor but don have the deodorizing filter(carbon filter) sweat.gif . And the KC840E have deodorizing filter but no odor sensor, wat happen to the stupid sharp design team rclxub.gif !! Only the RM1500 KC-850 is properly designed with all feature doh.gif

How's Sharp Air Purifier performing? I'm considering between the Sharp KC-930E and Hitachi EP-DX40E. Both with humidifier function & Ionizer. Any recommendation? Budget is +/- RM1k, for room around 150-200sqft

I got my Sharp KC-840EW for RM1180, cheapest in market from a shop in SS2. Other ppl selling 1280/1250 cheapest. It works like a charm to me.....

I too was deciding between a Sharp KC840E and the Hitachi EP-DX40E from Harvey Norman, but I too finally decided on Sharp. I have neighbours and friends who have used air purifiers at home and office for many years. Both smoke, keep a dog indoors and also, have the windows open exposed to KL smog/poor air. They both have used many brands, of the ones they highly recommend and say that they found highly effective are Alen, Honeywell, Sharp and Coway. However, American brands like Alen and Honeywell may not have as many service centres and replacement parts are not as easily obtainable. Coway, even though a new Chinese/Taiwanese company, has great house call servicing and very effective air purifiers; everytime I visit my friends' house, the house really smell clean and pure.

So I opted for Sharp as it has proven by many it works well with easily obtainable filters. Also, I got a good price for the Sharp KC-840E from Harvey's for rm1200. Been using it for a few days in my bedroom, and I most definitely feel the room has more moisture with my A/C on all night. My mornings don't feel so dry now smile.gif

I may decide to get the KC-850E or KC-860E for my living/dining room to rid the odors from the kitchen. Or perhaps the newly released Sharp models KC-A50 or KC-A60. Love the slightly new designs smile.gif

The moisturizing effect is definitely there with the humidifying function, I need to fill up the big tank quite frequent, this meant it is working well.....


Added on September 19, 2011, 2:39 pmBtw anybody used Super8 purifiers? I'm looking at the small car purifier selling for around RM88/ piece

Hi,

I wonder if anyone had tried out Appleblue air purifier? The product specification seems impressive and they have 7 technology in 1, where else the other more popular brands only have 2-3 in 1 only. doh.gif
Anyone out there are about to provide a review on Appleblue air purifier and to verify if it is as good as it claims? I've been searching around for this info, but no one had mentioned/reviewed about this brand before. hmm.gif

Just want to share ...don't waste your money on Medklinn products.

From (http://www.allergy.com.sg/airCareFAQ.html - read more here):
Ionizer (coulomb force generator). These machines usually have no motor. They charge the air around them with negative ions, and the negatively-charged dust will then stick to the surrounding walls and tables. Some models allow you to put in paper "filters" which will collect the charged dust. The efficiency of these machines is so low that there is no standard test for them. Their main usefulness is not in cleaning the air, but in releasing negative ions, which are beneficial to health. On the flip side, they produce ozone in various amounts, which is hazardous to health.

After reading, I realised in Medklinn's website under Australia region didn't use the word Ionizer I wonder why. Malaysia's website put 'ionisation technology' but than why they named their products Air Sterilizers? Air Sterilizers is a general term name for air device.

Actually if u really want a good air purifier n if money were no concern go for Honeywell products. It is recommended by doctors, that's y u can see lots of them in hospital.

Only a True HEPA not HEPA I repeat only with the word 'True' + 'Hepa' will really purify air!

To know more read this link:

KC930EW from Sharp Air purifier & humidifier less than RM900 for small to medium size room.

Plasma Cluster technology can cause cancer but not on paper so use moderately. You can switch on & off.

After reading, I realised in Medklinn's website under Australia region didn't use the word Ionizer I wonder why. Malaysia's website put 'ionisation technology' but than why they named their products Air Sterilizers? Air Sterilizers is a general term name for air device.

Actually if u really want a good air purifier n if money were no concern go for Honeywell products. It is recommended by doctors, that's y u can see lots of them in hospital.

Only a True HEPA not HEPA I repeat only with the word 'True' + 'Hepa' will really purify air!

KC930EW from Sharp Air purifier & humidifier less than RM900 for small to medium size room.

Plasma Cluster technology can cause cancer but not on paper so use moderately. You can switch on & off.

Not so sure about Panasonic but I think using ion & water technology (nanoe) to kill bacteria and clean the air so I think similar to Plasma Cluster and I might be wrong.

If you ask me, I only trust Honeywell (I know expensive but cheaper than direct selling brands e.g. coway). Right now the best technology for air cleaning is True Hepa. Why? Because it won't harm your health.

So, come to answer NightFelix:

Plasma Cluster generator. These machines generate hydroxyl (OH) radicals in the air,. Because OH radicals are very effective in killing cells, single-celled organisms like germs are quickly killed. However, OH radicals are linked to diseases like cancer in humans, since humans are also made up of cells (see below for more details).

Hi, you guys should try this.
I bought a home and car unit, because of all the specs. This air purifier uses a 3M filter, which can absorb and filter smoke and smell, very different and better than the purifiers out there which only uses HEPA filters.

I have attached video here to show the difference. I know of someone who can bring in this products if there is any interest.

Guys, from what I can see in this thread, it seems like these air filtration machines cost an arm and a leg for what is really a simple machine comprising of a fan and a filter to work. If you're not screwed enough by the high price of the machine, you're screwed again by the exorbitant replacement filters these companies sells for their filtering machine.

My point is, why are we letting these companies take advantage of us? Why not make it ourselves? Being a DIY person I am, I found this website teaching us how to make our own HEPA filter machine for an equivalent of RM 100! Check it out:

http://smartairfilters.com/

We can easily find a similar fan but I'm having problem finding a similarly priced HEPA filter used (around RM 50) by these guys. The closest I can find is at the ACE Hardware store selling 3M Filterete 3M Filterete (red colour model) for RM 90. It is normally sold around RM 50 in the US. Anyone knows where can I find cheaper HEPA filters around PJ or KL?

Cheers,
