Meh. Refurbished, and missing three of the Carbon filters that come with a new unit. The three filters are probably about $30. So, 75+5+30 is around $110 equivalent and it's refurbished instead of new. Either needs all the filters or a lower price. Pass.

Thx for pointing out filters are not included, OP should have stated that IMO.

Ditto Frown I have a Winix U300 in bedroom and a Honeywell cheapo Walmart one in the main area of house between kitchen and living room. Both works pretty well, but the Winix is superior and MUCH quieter.

Are you sure no filters are included? The description says otherwise...

I don't own this product and I don't know exactly how many filters normally come with it.
I have used the item title as the seller has it on their item page and I have given a list of what is included in the box.

From my OP (and has been in my OP since I posted it):

What's in the box:
  • 1x Air Purifier
  • 1x Pre-filter
  • 1x Carbon Filters
  • 1x True HEPA filter
Dontknow

OB_Bull didn't say no filters were included. They said it's missing 3 *Carbon* filters so my guess is there should be 4x Carbon filters instead of 1.

I am not sure if this one even came with 4x carbon filters by default. Maybe the 5300 did, but the 5500 has a washable filter that is good for a year instead of 3 months. Was lucky seeing this deal today, almost ordered the 5500-2 for $157 from amazon last night.

So I think maybe it was confusing as if you buy a RETAIL Winix filter pkg, it comes with 1 reg air filter and 4x carbon filters b/c those should be replaced every 3 months while reg filter is once a year. I kinda doubt even new unit comes with 4 carbon filters? My Winix U300 new didn't if I recall.............annnd i didn't know you are supposed to replace the carbon every 3 months (also we dont smoke and in bedroom so away from kitchen as well) so I haven't notice any diff.

The carbon filters are really cheap, you can get a cut to fit roll for less than $8:

The expensive filter is the HEPA one, that you "can" wash but it really doesn't get that clean. You can get them for $25 with 4 carbon filters included:

It comes with the washable filter and then 4x of the black carbon filters.

Why would it come with 4 filters if the carbon filter is washable every 3 months, that would be 4 years of carbon filters for it.

Edit: Didn't see one for the 5500, but the 5500-2 has this pdf showing that it just comes with the single washable filter: https://www.sharperimage.com/si/p...205281.pdf

Edit 2: Ah found the manual for the 5500: https://www.sylvane.com/media/doc...manual.pdf

Looks like it has a washable HEPA but non washable carbon filter. Wonder if i should just cancel this one and go with the 5500-2 instead, the less I have to change filters the better.

The carbon filter is not washable, it is to be replaced every 3 months which makes for a year of filters. The HEPA filter behind the carbon filter is supposedly washable, but in my experience washing it doesn't really help all that much.

I've purchased two of these exact models (and new ones). Both "refurbs" would turn off on their own at random times, but only when the plasmawave was turned on.

I don't think they refurbish anything at all, and just resell returns.
