I love this thing!

byFlipper2009 Dec 12, 2009
Helpful? 1 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Recommended it? Yes

I got lucky when my friend who lives up in a high rise with fresh air gave me hers.  I sold these for a while between jobs.  The person is right about the warranty, however there is I am sure a way around it as long as the model doesn't look "abused".  For buying filter & Charcoal...

Better than I'd hoped.

Pros The air is much lighter to breath, and less dust on the furniture.
Cons Yearly filter change is not cheap.
Recommended it? Yes

The new models can't be heard at all on low and the medium setting is also very tolerable. The high setting will put you to sleep once you adjust to it. My granddaughter never struggles to breath with her asthma when it's on, but otherwise coughs throughout the whole night. It's great to stop the... Read full review »

Don't buy it!!!

Pros .
Cons .
Recommended it? No

This was the worse investment ever. I regret giving over my air filter (as credit to this purchase) from Walmart for this "thing." I was told it will reduce my husband's snoring. That was the main reason why we purchased it. We also purchased with the FilterQueen 360. (But that's another story. In... Read full review »

Filter Queen defender

bybrule Jun 20, 2007
4 Helpfuls 5 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Pulls from all around base of unit, not just one direction as other units.
Cons Ugly. Expensive filter replacement. Not too quiet.
Recommended it? Yes

Computer area like dust bowl. Have used Sharper Image ionic breeze, Hammacher Schlemmer rotating 180 degree unit, Fresh Air machine. All did so so job. Must say Defender pulling air from all around bottom of unit has done much better job of keeping dust down. Rather ugly - but oh, well. Read full review »

Red maintenance light is already on!

3 Helpfuls 4 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Clean air/no nasal congestion for six months.
Cons High Maintenance,VERY expensive, and when on highest level it sounds like an airplane.
Recommended it? No

I purchased this purifier ($850) because of my allergies. When the salesman demonstrated the product in my home I thought that is was the best. The purifier was quite noisy, but we didn't mind because the air smelled so clean. After having the product for 6 months the red maintenance light came on... Read full review »

Something smells good

13 Helpfuls 14 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Durable, programmable, cleaner air
Cons replacing filters every year
Recommended it? Yes

I purchased the Defender a couple of months ago and thought I had made a bad economic decision, but I was well determined that the filtration would help the condition of my 7 year old daughter. Since she was born I've had to use a nebulizer four times a day, which is very time consuming. She also... Read full review »

Wolf in Sheep's Clothing!

4 Helpfuls 5 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros It works great, until you use the sample filters up that come with the machine.
Cons It requires a second mortgage on your home, so you can afford the filters!
Recommended it? No

Buyers beware! The Filter Queen Vacuum and Filter Queen Defender Air Purifier are hot little numbers, but the sales representative does a hot little number too! He will tell you all the wonderful attributes about the machines, but when you try to nail him down to get the price on the filters he... Read full review »

Helped clear sinus congestion

byjgritzon Dec 30, 2005
3 Helpfuls 4 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Really cleans allergens out of the air. Has decreased my sinus congestion greatly.
Cons Too pricey to buy and maintain.
Recommended it? Yes

I bought the Defender 4000 about 4 years ago. I have not had any problems. It is way too noisy to use on high except when out of the house. I usually kept it running on low in our 2,000 square foot home and didn't really notice if it was making a difference. We moved a year and a half ago and I... Read full review »

Not worth it!

Pros Makes the air in that room smell different.
Cons Noisy and overpriced, especially in maintenance.
Recommended it? No

Bought the air purifier but did not have to purchase the vacuum to get it. I live in small one bedroom apartment, and it was way too loud to run full speed while at home. On low it does not seem to do a good job except in the one room where it is located it has a different smell of air. My... Read full review »

not worth the price

bysquirrel1959 Sep 6, 2005
4 Helpfuls 5 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros none noticed in my opinion
Cons very costly replacement filters, need to buy a costly vacuum cleaner with it also.
Recommended it? No

This item was a throw in product to help sell the pricey Majestic vacuum cleaner from the same company. Ran this purifier and really did not feel any change in the room or breathing conditions. The upkeep price of $25 for a charcoal filter which needs replaced every 6 months and the yearly cost of... Read full review »

Honest review from a salesman

bydallimar May 12, 2004
18 Helpfuls 19 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Very well designed, great warrenty, very quiet on lower settings.
Cons A little pricey both to purchase and maintain
Recommended it? Yes

The Defender is an excellent product from what I've seen. HEPA cleans down to .3 microns, Defender down to .1. It's also FDA certified as a Class 2 medical device.

The claims are that you need 1 for each level of your house, but they're only rated to clean 17,000 ft^3. If you do the math,... Read full review »
