Sharp Plasmacluster Air Purifier Review and Test Results



As we examine the Sharp Plasmacluster Air Purifier model FPN60CX we'll see whether the Plasmacluster technology is really anything new, or unique, as it is marketed to be. My opinion is that the sharp plasmacluster air purifier is a good or above avergae "middle-of-the-road", brand name, air purifier. The decent sized HEPA makes it do a good job at pollen and dust, and the carbon filter will work on gases and odors.

The cost is a bit high for what you get in my opinion, and it is especially overpriced for the replacement filters, but you can still get your moneys worth from it's performance.

Sharp Plasmacluster Air Purifier FPN60CX

Sharp (in the manual) says you can vacuum the HEPA filter for longer life, and wash the Carbon. Having tried that on mine - it's simply not going to work the way they say - so forget about the HEPA filter lasting "up to 5 years", that's simply not going to happen (unless you run it for ten minutes a day). The idea of vacuuming the HEPA filter as they suggest simply doesn't do much for removing small particles (if you decide to try it make sure you do it through the pre-filter, as they suggest, or the hepa will be destroyed). The 'Washable carbon" is not the best idea either because if you wash the carbon the carbon might let go of the gases trapped in it's pores but carbon will absorb chlorine from the water, and water can create a musty smell unless you get all the water out.

It is very quiet in the sleep mode (14 decibels) but there's a tradeoff - the fan is so slow it doesn't move any air at that speed.

(Make sure you read my conclusion at the end)

Sharp Plasmacluster Air Purifier Conclusion

It's a good air purifier, and you should be able to get your money's worth out of the sharp plasmacluster. The replacement filters are overpriced (let's make that way overpriced), and I would do a hunt for better prices online for the replacements. However it will do a good job on pollen and dust.
