WINIX offer a 1-to-2-year warranty with this, though it is quite limited in what it can actually cover. It covers defects only in material and workmanship; wear and tear, normal use, service to maintain the product or inability to follow the instructions provided can make it hard for you to claim your warranty with the Winix 5300-2 Air Purifier, so keep that in mind.


  • Great quality of power with a variety of fan speeds alongside automatic and sleep modes that makes it easy to be efficient with usage and keeping the air nice and clean.
  • Outstandingly effective true-HEPA filter delivers a very impressive feature for getting even the most microscopic of bacteria and allergens in the air before they become an issue.
  • 3-stage filtration is very powerful indeed, giving you a cost-effective and reliable solution for keeping everything as purified as you possibly can.


  • The odor carbon pre-filter isn’t as good as a normal standalone pre-filter with a carbon filter, so don’t expect it to do the same quality of job as something more dedicated.
  • Filter has to be changed on a regular basis which can be a tiresome process, especially as it’s not the easiest filter to change that we’ve come across.


The Winix 5300-2 Air Purifier is a very good air purifier, but if you need something that requires less operation and maintenance then this might not be for you!


Overall, we’d recommend the Winix 5300-2 Air Purifier to anyone who wants a strong, versatile and wide-ranging purifier but we would not recommend it to those who are not around to change filters on a regular basis.
