Is the sharper image ionic breeze with ionic guard still dangerous?
Awhile back, there was a big hype about the ionic breeze producing ozone which is very hazardous to our health. But now they come with these new "ozone guards." I was thinking of buying one for my mom, but of course I wouldn't want her to submit her to ozone. Does anyone have factual evidence that these things are safe? Or should I just go with a noisey hepa filter?
No, even with the catalyst (ozone guard), it still emits a significant amount of ozone.

What can owners of the Sharper Image Ionic Breeze do now?
Can they get their money back or anything? Is there anything conclusive that would urge these owners to turn off their ionic breezes? Thanks.
Apparently independent testing found that these electrostatic "air purifiers" do not significantly reduce indoor air pollution, and they generate levels of ozone which may be unsafe to ozone-sensitive individuals. (such as older or younger people, or people with certain respiratory conditions.)
Is the air from the Sharper Image Ionic breeze air purifier supposed to smell funny?
I just bought a used ionic breeze air purifier, but the air coming out of it doesn't smell that great. Is that normal? What's the deal? Thanks!
Yes, I think it's normal. I had one in the office for a while, and even after cleaning it and everything, it smelled a little strange. Maybe that's because our noses are so used to the smell of dirty air.
It's similar to the feeling when you drink distilled water.
Which air filter is better: The HoMedics Brethe or the Sharper Image Ionic Breeze?
The Ionic breeze ionizes air to draw it towards metal plates and attract dirt and dust. The Brethe has a vortex engine that creates a mist from tap water and a botanical "chemical" that filters the air. The Brethe is about 60 bucks for a standard unit and the Ionic breeze is about 120 dollars
I recently bought an Ionizer from Ebay and yes you just clean the Blades off when it is Dirty. It really works and with all the Allergens in the Air, Pets, Dust, Cigarette Smoke, and Molds its a great thing to have in the Home..It will also, keep these things out of your Carpets and Curtains. Its well worth the Buy.
I have a Sharper Image Ionic Breeze that when turned on blinks then shuts off told it might be a transformer?
I have replaced the bulb which was burnt out. But it still does the same thing. If it is a transformer where is it? Where can I get another one?
It probably works with a normal transformer that you may be able to pick up at radio shack. Make sure you clean the static collections plates because that could also cause the same problem.
