Sorry, had another thought after I posted the other response. If 
Consumer Reports thinks the Ionic Breeze doesn't remove particles 
from the air, they're welcome to come take a look at the wands in 
mine when I clean them. You'd be amazed. 

With that said, the traditional (noisier) HEPA filters tend to be 
better for getting large gunk out of the air, like kitty hair and 
such. However, the Quadras get smells out of the air far better than 
anything else I've ever tried. Since Jacqueline's post mentioned a 
lot of stinkiness, I figured the Quadras might be a good idea.

Consumer Reports and I will just have to differ in our opinions on 
this one. ;-)
