Winix QS review

  • The only music player/ air purifier in the market that can deliver crisp, robust sound via its JBL Bluetooth speaker.
  • Round tower housing with 360 degree air flow distribution to captures airborne particles from every angle.
  • Comprehensive coverage with strong selectable 4 speed and Auto mode/ Sleep mode.
  • Complete filtration with fine mesh pre-filter, True HEPA, Carbon filter and PlasmaWave Technology.
  • AQ indicator, filter replacement indicator and child lock all comes standard.
  • All-in-one filter that only requires yearly cartridge change.
  • 2 years warranty (although some competitors offer up to 5).
  • Slightly expensive to change the filter as you would need to replace the all-in-one filter at one go.
  • In sleep mode, the indicator light does not dim down enough to our liking.
  • Surprisingly pre-set timer (auto-shut down) is left out on the air purifier.
