Vax ACAMV101 Pure Air 300 Air Purifier – : Great for the money

Bought this beast after the dust from our never ending building work started to get seriously out of hand and was making us ill. We positioned it in the hallway next to the stairwells and, after just a couple of hours, could feel the air improving all over the house. We had our first proper night’s sleep for weeks, with no coughing and less wheezing from me and no sniffing or sneezing from the other half. We already have a smaller vax ap02 in the bedroom and a mini vax ap01 in the caravan which help me manage my asthma very effectively and i rate both very highly, but we needed something bigger for the rest of the house and the pure air 300 is in a different league – simply amazing. It is so quiet, compared to the smaller models and, on night mode, it just whispers, making it easy to ignore and sleep through. I love the way it responds to changing air conditions – every time it detects a wave of dust, or the toxic smoke seeping in from our neighbour’s woodburner, it revs up and clears the air in minutes. When the soil pipe was being cut in our bathroom, it eliminated the odour immediately. One small downside is that the dog is getting a complex, as the machine revs up every time she walks past it, however, it has certainly driven the message home to my other half about how much dust he has been carrying around on his diy clothes. This machine takes up a bit of space as you need to keep a margin around it for it to work properly but it is not unattractive and has serious capacity. Great for large, open plan areas.

Fantastic house hold purification system.

Great product and came with a filter.

Does what it says on the tin.

The auto function is superb. Dont waste your money (like we did) on anything cheaper. This was bought to help after building works and is now in our kitchen to help with general cooking smalls until we install an extractor. We absolutely love this machine. We had it off at the weekend while away and could really tell the difference. With it on the house seems so much fresher.

As always amazon shipped and delivered with good strong packaging , the air purifiers are very goodquality and after a few days of use i found a big difference in house air quality.

Most things were of good quality but not all. Must be more careful in future. The details aren’t as good when you purchased items. For example my mail box was so heavy to put on the front of my house, it looks more like a safe than a mail box. I’m using it as a safe to put money away under the stairs.

Can actually sleep at night now.

I work from home in a semi-rural area. With high pollen levels i have suffered with rhinitis for ages. I bought this vac air purifier after seeing a review in which?.It’s a bit beast (roughly the size of a kitchen bin), that i position in my home office during the working day and then shift to the bedroom. Despite being a big beast, it looks professional, it’s easy to move, and easy to change from normal settings to/from night settings (it is quieter on the night setting). I haven’t had to replace the filter yet – it should be easy to do, but haven’t checked the price of filters yet.

Have been suffering with hayfever & read about this machine. Have only been using for a week, so far very good. Leave on auto setting during the daytime & switch to night setting. Night setting is very quiet. Arrived on the day stated on order.

Really helps us to breathe at night. Very little noise which is good.

Purchased one and love the product. Air feels really clean and fresh , however only had it for two days and the fan have stopped working. Amazon have been great and have dispatched another one straight away, hopefully this one works for longer now.

I used to have difficulty in breathing at night due to lack of cross-ventilation. Things have not been the same since i bought the product. I hope there could be improvement on the sound of the fan though.

We have 5 spaniels in and out all day, within hours all surfaces were covered in gritty dust. Had it 24hrs and we have no dust. It’s quite large like a large floor standing ashtray and very quiet untill dogs disturb dust when (on auto) the fan works harder. We don’t find it intrusive and it quickly goes back to very quiet mode. On low we don’t hear it at all. Initially we are leaving it on night mode through night.

This purifier is very good, gets rid of cigarette smoke with ease.

Great for purifying the air as it should be of course. Shame it’s so big in the room.

Appears to be doing everything they claimed.

Best buy and i am well pleased with the way it operates.

Purchased as my son was coughing at night and was recommended to get an air purifier. He stopped coughing after a couple of days. Worth every penny and makes a noticeable difference to air quality. Night mode is quite and it automatically detects air quality and adjusts the fan speed accordingly. I was going to purchase a cheaper model but went for this as it is good value for money. It also reduces dust collecting in room. Filter kits are quite expensive for what they are but not had to buy one yet, will get one soon as a spare.

I thourougly researched this and another three leading brand models. I have been using this vax air purifier for over a month and it is fantastic. Very very powerful and extremely quiet. I use it on the auto setting and i can’t even notice it. Would highly recommend this.

I bought one of these and ran it for 3 days before realising the pre-installed filter has a plastic wrapper around it.

    We have two units, one for our kitchen another for the upstairs rooms. These units work very well and everyday we turn them on for an hour to incrementally cleanse the air. Sensors are sensitive and will definitely detect changes in air composition and quality e. Heavy cooking in kitchen – it detects and works hard in conjunction with the kitchen extractors. Design is sleek and it sits inconspicuously and elegantly in corners. We have had these for more than 1 1/2 years and filters have yet to need replacing but one drawback is that the filters are expensive.

      Machine makes a constant high pitched sound on speed 2. Chatted to vax support, an absolute joke. The support persons knowledge went as far as “have you tried turning the machine upside down to dislodge anything that might be stuck?”. That was the extent of their knowledge. Then, because it was close to 5pm and they wanted to go home from work, they basically fobbed me off and ended the chat. Well kiss mine vax, won’t buy anything from your company ever again in my life you ripoff merchants.

    Two cats that get fur everywhere – this thing is powerful enough to make a difference day-to-day. It works incredibly well, the automatic adjustment to meet the air quality is great and really helps the place feeling fresh. Only negatives: filters aren’t cheap, it’s loud on the higher settings and it is bigger than one might expect.

        I got for my son for his allergies and also smelly neighbour awful cooking smells. It seems to have been helpful, not greatly on smells but seems to be good for the airborne dust.

    Purchased this for my daughter who has severe asthma. It’s made a dramatic improvement to her sleep patterns where before she would be up several times a night reaching for the inhaler.
