Sharper Image Ionic Breeze Purifier Sucks

So says Consumers Union, and a court in San Francisco has agreed. Consumers Union's magazine, Consumer Reports. (subscribers only) did a review of air cleaners, and panned the Sharper Image unit. SI sued, claiming that the testing methods were flawed. The court threw out the case, saying that SI had no evidence on which to base their claim. While I'm no fan of Consumer Reports, everything I've ever tried (including an Ionic Breeze) that had a Sharper Image brand on it has been a piece of crap.

Update: If you absotively, posolutely have to have one anyway, the desktop model is 50% off this month. Gee, I wonder why?
