People who are sensitive to allergens notice no itchy nose, eyes or coughing, sneezing. From pet dander to bad odors, the Winix U450 is an excellent package that requires miminmal maintenance for its powerful performance.

Though the product has majorly received positive reviews, there are few disgruntled customers who are not satisfied with the performance of the product.

Here are few of the customer Winix U450 reviews both positive and negative available on the internet. Winix U450 air purifier are available on Amazon online.

“It is an amazing air purifier. I have allergies to pollen and dust. When I am at home, I am able to relax and breathe fresh air. Not many realise that the indoor air quality is probably 100x worst than outdoor air. Long story short, I purchased 2 of the Winix U450 and it has been going great for a week now. One is in my bedroom and whenever I turn it on within 30 minutes I can breathe better. I am happy with the purchase and 100% satisfied with the results.”

“I bought the U450 air purifier in 2015. It worked as expected for 2 years and then stopped working. I filed a RMA request but my RMA was not processed since 3 months despite the follow ups. Of course, there are positives to the product such as very efficient in removing odor, energy efficient, and silent performance. But the Winix U450 replacement filter is quite costly $100. The front panel is flimsy and the rivets that hold the panel are fragile and can break when you move or replace the filter. The warranty is just worthless as its impossible to get the company process the warranty request.”

Winix U300 review

The Winix Signature Series U300 has received excellent reviews from users.

The product has received 4.4 out of 5 stars from users. From Winix U450 replacement filters to managing the air purifier, the customer service offers good support to the users. People love the fact that the product gets rid of pet dander, itchy eyes, sneezing, and other allergens from the home. The performance of the air purifier is silent thus assisting in peaceful sleep at nights. The Winix U300 manual is good, detailed and provides clear instructions.

There are a few downsides though (just like any other brand). Another user on Amazon claims that the air purifier triggers an unpleasant chemical smell. This is seen in this model only and not on other Winix models. Another user claimed that he received a torn air filter (when purchased from Amazon).

Here are few of the Winix U300 reviews available.

“What a fantastic difference!!!! I placed it in my living room where we spend most of the time. Though living room is smaller, I ordered this large air cleaner as I have 7 dogs. It has made a huge difference not only in my living room but also in the kitchen as well. You will understand how hard it is to maintain a clean home when you have many pets. While normally I dust every couple of days, with Winix U450 air purifier, I clean only 5-7 days. It has greatly cut down pet hair. Even the filter is good and might need replacement but that’s a small price to pay for the great improvement I have seen. I regret not buying it before.”

“After reading many of the reviews on this air purifier, I decided to give it a try. I don’t understand why people complain about the plasma sound wave as I don’t feel any extra sound apart from the fan running which is barely audible. I got this for my living room to cut down the dust and electronics and the pet hair from my cat. I don’t need to turn off plasma wave as there is no annoying sound at all. Even at the turbo setting, the quality of the fan and the air purifier is discreet. This is a very good quality air purifier. Might even buy a small unit for my bedroom.”
