We have had one for 6 years and love it. The complaints on the sound are a maintenance issue. There is a wire in the back of the Ionic pro you have to clean allso. I found the best way is with a clean finger tip.. Gently run your finger up and down on it to gett get the debris offf that cause the sound. I cannot emphasize the word gently enough. We have 5 dogs and a cat and this thing removes Pet odor from our house

Great replacement for an old Quadra
I have used Sharper Image ionic Breeze purifiers for about 13years. Just replaced 2 Quadra's with 2 Environ Pro Turbos. Compared to my Quadra's the outer construction is better, the collection plates do not have a lip making them easier to clean but are a little scratched and beat looking when brand-new, the Ionizing wire cleaner is an easy to use lever and the removal and installation of the plates is convenient. One thing I do not like is the on/off pulse that cannot be disabled 10sec. on/ 5sec. off after running for about 10min straight when it is first turned on. This pulse likely saves the lifespan of the machine, but my Quadra lasted more than a decade without a pulse. The pulse just reduces the ion output. That said it still functions great and at a much better price the my old ones were. If you have never used an ionic purifier then you are missing out, for households with heavy dust or people with bad allergies I do not think this is a replacement to HEPA, this is supplemental and far more effective removing much smaller impurities in air. Clear air from HEPA can prevent you from sneezing. Clear air from ion purifier FEELS great to breath. This is a must have for smokers and smoking households.

Still working over a decade later
i have had this one since 2014 and use it with one I bought in 2005 in a 2000 square foot home. I will not waste my money on anything else these work and last beyond your expectations I tried many other ionic cleaners that had fans and the unit always fails because of the fan, and they were noisy!
This unit gets noisy when it needs cleaned and I thought I did a good job of cleaning but if it makes noise you did not get it clean! I don't care if you think you did - you didn't. I finally wiped the wire and used a mild vinegar and soap solution I use to clean my kitchen on a paper towel and dried it with a microfiber cloth and all is quiet. I put the older unit in a bedroom the previous owner kept a cat in that smelled beyond tolerance after having the carpet professionally cleaned, shut the door and in 8 hours it smelled like fresh air. I left it for awhile with out the door closed and now I use it in a more open area in that wing of the house. I leave this unit in the kitchen in the other wing of the house and it definitely gets dirty more than the guest wing.

True Ionic Cleaner. Collects Dust. No moving parts.
Took a chance and bought two of these because the 3 blade element looked identical to the element in my previous ionic air cleaner by Sharper Image. We have a very dusty house, 2700 sq ft and one is upstairs in master bedroom and one is down in family room. You can feel the air flow when you turn it on high, however, I feel like the Sharper Image unit pulled a lot more dust out of the air and definitely had to be cleaned much more often (weekly, as opposed to 3 or 4 weeks for this unit). That being said, my wife, who has an EXCEEDINGLY sensitive nose, said these units made an immdiate improvement, whether that is due to dust reduction, or a little extra ozone in the air, I don't know. But since she's happy, I'm happy, and I gave 5 stars instead of 4. I use a baby wipe to clean the blades and follow with paper towel be completely dry.

Very happy with this air purifier
Very happy with this air purifier! Even though I am allergic to cats I have 4 of them. For years now I would wake up every morning having to blow my nose forever. Within just two days of running this unit I noticed a huge benefit to my health and well being. The air literally smells fresh. On that note, I did not buy this to deal with odors. I bought it to help with animal allergies, dust and indoor pollutants. I walk in my house through my garage into the room where the cats litter box it is located. A few days after buying this I walked in to a destroyed litter box that my son had not cleaned that day. Walking in to that wonderful welcome smell I decided to test it out since it says it helps with smells and odors too. Within just 10 mins you literally could not smell the litter box that was right in front of us that a few minutes ago was overwhelming! Needless to say very surprised and have already bought 2 more! Love that it is completely silent and that you do not have to buy new filters. Highly recommend!

clean air at low cost.
works as it states
- i have this running continuously in 4 areas in the house. although it has bit a an electricity smell in the air, i guess it's my way of knowing the air is filtered. after some time, you really don't notice that smell.
- very easy to clean. be sure to ONLY use water moist towel. anything else may destroy the product, as it has happened to one of my other ionic breeze product. allow time for it to dry before operation.
On a side note, my wife has terrible allergies. So to help correct her condition, that explains why we have four of these in different areas of the house.

SUPER QUIET - Crackling means debris
I bought my first Turbo purifier nearly 3 years ago for $55 more, + txs a at Super Walmart in Dallas. Found out one of my cats had asthma and did not want to wait. It's STILL working like day 1. So, just bought another one here, identical, to cover more area, and help my seasonal allergic cats. This unit is TOTALLY QUIET. And I can hear a fly go by! The crackling sound means you need to turn off the unit, pull up the tab on the top (which traps debris), and clean it top to bottom real well until the unit goes silent again. You may need to repeat, with unit off. As far as cleaning, I don't wait for the light to go from blue to warning red. I clean the blades once a week or so, and wipe the exterior as well, with a damp sponge. I had issues with the shipping, supposed to be delivered on Sunday. US post office is NOT reliable on Sundays. If you don't want to be frustrated waiting for your product all day long and not receiving it, reschedule in advance. BTA-MALL was very helpful about it. Other than that, this unit came in perfect shape, in an extra box (which my kitty took over of right away), well packaged and with a great brand-new smell. TIP: Remove the tapes on the bottom of the unit or you won't be able to open the blades compartment.

Envion Ionic Pro Turbo Ionic Air Purifier
Well I gambled and I lost. Worked fine for 4 months and then started making noises. Lights stay on but you can feel the air stop when it stops making noise, then it will start up again and it does this continously. So it only filters 50$% of the time and when it does, its making crackling noises. Tried doing the extensive cleaning steps and still no luck. I've tried twice to call customer service (once last week and once today). Last time he said to try cleaning it, and even though I told him the steps I had gone through, he still said clean this, then do the little slider, then un-plug it and let it cool down for an hour, put it in a different location, and it will work. I told him that I had did that and then he says, We are having computer problem, can you call back in a hour? Five days later I call back and they say the same thing, can you call back in a hour. Really? I will keep trying and if they actually repair the thing I will come back and update this review. Otherwise, good luck if you try this product.
UPDATE !! I had to pay $30.00 for "warranty processing and shipping" , AND I had to pay the return shipping. I did get a new unit. Hope it last longer than the first one.

Cheap Product with Poor Customer Service
I first purchased a product for 1/2 the cost, and 1/2 the size, and wound up throwing it in the trash after 2 months. This Ionic Pro extracts the odors and you can wipe the collected material off of the metal blades. Other products will not collect anything on their metal blades.
THIS IS AN UPDATE ON THE PRODUCT. After 6 months, it began making a hissing noise. Running the blades through the dishwasher helped for about 1 week, then back to hissing like a snake. The customer service at EnvionProducts.com (the maker) said that the the blades may have lost their magnetism. The quality of the product seems relatively poor. They sent me a replacement unit for $20 in shipping costs, and I bought new blades for my old unit for another $24.
The customer service person was extremely rude. He took my information, put me on hold, then hung up on me. They are based in Southern California and all of the service reps sound like they can barely speak English - though they claim to be working in the USA. I feel very cheated by a cheap company with poor customer service. Buy this product with extreme caution.
Further update. The replacement blades did not stop the hissing in the original unit with the problem. In fact, when no blades were installed at all in the problem unit, and it was empty and turned on, the unit continued hissing in the same manner. Thus, don't be deceived if they try to send you replacement blades only, try the "empty" test to see if the unit still hisses. In my case, they sent me a whole new unit, and it has been operating for the past month running completely silently. I have raised the product review to 3 stars for now. The customer support is based in S. California and all of the customer support personnel sound like gang-bangers. Be prepared, but patient, and don't hesitate to demand an entire replacement unit if the unit won't stop hissing.

Super quiet and effective
I bought this to help alleviate some of the dangerous levels of smoke in our house from nearby fires. I am about 30 miles south of the devastating NorCal fires, and the air quality has been very bad here. Our house is super drafty, so when it's really bad I still need to wear my particle mask (there's only so much one little tower can do), but it definitely makes a huge difference in air quality vs outdoors when it's just moderately bad particle counts.
The fresh-air smell from the ionizer is also super welcome!
It's so quiet I wasn't sure if it was working at first, but after reading other reviews that seems to be normal for it, and I am able to feel the air quality difference in my lungs.
