Sharp FPA80UW Plasmacluster Air Purifier Review

The Sharp FPA80UW plasmacluster air purifier is an air purifier designed to remove unwanted particles from the air by capturing them and filtering them out using a True HEPA filter. The Sharp air purifier model FPA80UW is designed to reduce 99.97% of unwanted elements in the air, including but not limited to germs, mold, dirt, fungus, bacteria, pollen, pet dander, dust and more. In addition to the HEPA filter, this particular model utilizes Sharp’s patented plasmacluster technology to attack the impurities in the air. These impurities, which can cause odors, are neutralized by creating both positive and negative ions in the air; this is in contrast to non-Sharp air purifiers which simply spray out odor-eliminating chemicals or odor-masking perfumes. This particular model is designed for use in larger living areas, such as large living rooms, very large bedrooms, or other larger spaces.
