Sharp White Plasmacluster Ion Air Purifier, Model FPA80UW

Sharp's FP-A80UW air purifier combines True HEPA filtration to reduce allergens with Sharp’s patented Plasmacluster® Ion technology which attacks germs and odors. The Plasmacluster air purifier helps remove these irritants with an ultra-quiet fan that draws air through a washable pre-filter and a True HEPA filter that removes 99.97% of impurities from the air that passes through it. This filter system plus the revolutionary Plasmacluster Ion Technology for air purifiers makes the air cleaner and fresher smelling. Sharp’s Plasmacluster Ion technology attacks germs and odors at the molecular level. This technology has been proven to reduce certain bacteria, virus, mold, fungus and odors in lab tests.

  • Plasmacluster Ion Technology
    Sharp’s patented technology splits water molecules into positively and negatively charged ions, which spread throughout the room, surrounding airborne impurities and breaking them down. This technology has been proven to reduce certain bacteria, virus, mold, fungus and odors in lab tests
  • Simple Operation with Dust Sensor
    3 manual fan speeds plus 15 minute Quick Clean cycle and automatic dust sensor: “When the light is green, the air is clean”

        Purchased this to reduce mold and allergens. Have noticed a definite reduction in congestion since putting this in our bedrooms. Did a fair amount of research on air purifiers and this model is the best meeting point of value, quality, and effectiveness. I'm pretty sound sensitive and on low fan speed this is barely audible and easily tolerated. Highly recommended!

        Comments about Sharp White Plasmacluster Ion Air Purifier:

        I have owned a Vornado for about 5 years and it was time to buy some new filters, but I decided to see how the landscape had changed before buying.

        I spent about 3 hours of intense research reviewing the various options. And while I would have loved to purchase a top-of-the-line device for a couple thou, I had a budget of "a few hundred dollars".

        I had two core requirements: excellent cleaning and quiet operation.

        This unit knocks both of those right out of the park!

        Within about 20 minutes of unpacking, the Plasmacluster had throughly scrubbed the air in my 10x12 home office (where I spend 6-10 hours every day). When running in "Auto" mode, it stays at the low setting about 98% of the time, but in spite of that, my surroundings are decidely "cleaner".

        I sit equidistant from a desktop computer situated on the floor and the Plasmacluster, and the ONLY sound I hear is my computer! I only notice that it is running the couple of times a day it kicks into 'high' gear.

        I also really like the "quick clean" option. At the end of the day, I move the unit from my office to my bedroom, press the button and then go do something else. At the end of the quick 15-minute max cycle, the unit downshifts to auto mode. It is so quiet, I almost nearly completely forget that it is in the room.

        Since it is operating in my bedroom, one of my secondary requirements was to have "low light" operation. While the Plasmacluster offers the ability to extinguish the two incredibly bright "Clean Sign" panels, there remains the small though bright green light indicating operating mode and a second green light when the optional ion cleaning is engaged. My solution was to place small stickers over these lights to completely dim them. (Though these little lights are so bright, I had to apply multiple layers to truly hide them!)

        I am very satisfied with this unit, but I haven't yet had to purchase replacement filters ... so that opinion along with my enthusiasm might dim slightly. ;-}

        Speedy delivery, functional and responsive web site led to "frictionless" purchase.

            Comments about Sharp White Plasmacluster Ion Air Purifier:

            I bought this for children with allergy to place in their bedrooms and in the den where they play. We have no pets and I am simply trying to make the space as clean as possible for them with these and other measures - hepa vacuum bags, better hvac, etc.
            They report some improvement. As I don't have allergy I can't comment on that. However I do sense a pleasant freshness to the air. Based on my research I decided that these would be good to supplement even the best hvac whole house air purification system.

            The ease of use, attractiveness, and noise level of the unit are well thought out and executed by Sharp. From my survey and my opinion Sharp is the best in each of these categories. I like the AUTO function, the QUICK CLEAN function, the DISPLAY of Air Quality indicator and the ability to turn off the DISPLAY of Air Quality. (other lights don't turn off. I put black electrical tape over them) It also appears to be a technology leader/early adopter with it's plasmacluster technology.

            I have owned the units for two months - the replacement filter and charcoal filter together are about $100 retail and less from ABT. That would be $800 per year if I replaced quarterly for both units. It remains to be seen how frequently I will replace. Of course the filter is what works for allergy, and the charcoal is mainly just for smell. So I guess I could reduce the replacement cost in half by prioritizing the replacement of the filter. I see that ABT has the filters in stock and the charcoal is an ordered item so perhaps that is the choice folks make.

            The great thing about ABT is it's never a problem getting the replacement items like filters. They know the unit you bought and the replacement items you need. ABT is price competitive with the other retailers. It would make no sense to me to buy a discounted unit somewhere else that requires replacement filters.

            ABT sells Trane whole house system air purifier for which the filter is blown out and not replaced. I am looking to purchase that whole house unit with hvac to supplement. So I expect to continue to use use these air purifiers local to the people affected with allergy and feel that the replacement frequency and cost are justified and managed by this approach.

              Comments about Sharp White Plasmacluster Ion Air Purifier:

              As with my previous review on the smaller Plasmacluster that I purchased at the same time I purchased this, I am giving it 4 out of 5 stars because my primary reason for purchasing this was to aid in the control of dust mites who plague my GSD. I keep this one between my Living Room and Bedroom. It is very quiet and really does the trick when it comes to keeping the air smelling nice and fresh and it does a pretty good job eliminating cooking odors. I must say that I hadn't even thought of it until now, but the other night my friend was over to watch college football and she has wicked alergies to my cats, she usually leaves with watery eyes and sneezing (what can I say, she's a trooper) and when she left Saturday night, she hadn't sneezed once and her eyes were not swollen and watery. Hmmm I am now wondering if it was the air purifyer. If so, then this thing is great, just not great at dust mites.

                Comments about Sharp White Plasmacluster Ion Air Purifier:

                It is a bigger than my last generation Sharp Plasma Ion filters but feels better made/designed. The FPA80UW is better than the A60UW as it has the "auto" feature that I think is critical (otherwise it is running all the time). The A80UW and A60UW are the same physical size so you aren't saving any 'space' by going with the 'lower' model. These seem quieter than the last generation.

                  • Smaller rooms

                  This unit is in my bedroom where the efficiency and relative quiet are greatly appreciated. I like the ability to turn off the larger lights as well as the plasma ion portion. The turbo button to put it in high mode for 15 minutes is a great feature as it then reverts to the previous setting automatically. I normally keep it set at medium speed at night and it's just right with good speed and efficiency but not overly obtrusive in noise. So far, I don't really use the automatic mode as it seems to simply stay on low which seems somewhat wimpy in relative air flow. If Sharp had a larger capacity model for 1000+ square foot rooms, I would have bought it rather than the Airpura. The Airpura has great capacity but a very limited feature set.

                    Our 5 year old has dust mite and other environmental allergies. She would always wake up stuffy and congested. From the very first night using the Sharp we noticed a difference. Less congestion, better sleep, sleeps longer, and stays more pleasant during the day. Air not very "fresh" smelling but I knew that probably would be the case considering very little carbon and reading the other reviews. Otherwise top notch and well worth the money.
