Sharp QNET SmartAir Air Purifier FP-J50 Review

Indian air purifier market

The Indian air purifier market is relatively at a nascent stage, but with the rising dust, pollution, and haze levels in metropolitan cities, there's been a demand for these devices. Sharp, a popular Japanese company has released several air purifiers in the Indian market. I recently began using the Sharp QNET SmartAir Air Purifier FP-J50 at home and the results are instantly visible. Thanks to the app, one can even monitor the air quality and control the settings seamlessly.

However, we Indians are generally price conscious and calculative when it comes to buying new gadgets. Here, the Sharp QNET SmartAir Air Purifier series are available in a wide price range. Particularly, the SmartAir FJ-J50 costs Rs. 30,000. The air purifier comes with the trademark Plasma Cluster technology, which can even fight the deadly COVID-19 virus. Should you really get an air purifier at home? How does it work? All these questions and more are answered in this detailed review.

Sharp QNET SmartAir Air Purifier Design: Compact, Sturdy Build

The Sharp QNET SmartAir Air Purifier FJ-J50 offers a sturdy build with a black-colored chassis. One can find a couple of similarities with other air purifiers from Sharp. Here, the FP-J50 has several physical sensor buttons on top, which include the Timer button, Mode button, Haze button, Wi-Fi connector, and the power button. Plus, the panel includes the light and the internal sensor indicators.

The top portion of the air purifier includes the outlet, which releases the clean, purified air. The front portion of the air purifier flaunts the Sharp QNET logo along with the Plasma Cluster trademark. At the back, one can see the large frame with the massive filter. Particularly, the rear panel includes multiple filters like the pre-filter, a deodorizing filter, HEPA filter, and Sensitive dust filter. Here, the deodorizing filter can be routinely changed.

All in all, the build of the new Sharp QNET SmartAir Air Purifier FJ-J50 is quite compact. I moved the device a couple of times from the living room to the bedrooms. Since there's handle support at the rear, moving it around is easy. However, shifting it around often is not advised. Keeping the purifier in one place where you usually spend more time would be ideal.

Sharp Air App Syncing Is A Herculean Task

The Sharp QNET SmartAir Air Purifier FJ-J50 is one of the unique devices with Wi-Fi support. It can be connected with the Sharp Air app for better controls and monitoring. That said, syncing the air purifier with the app is a Herculean task! Despite following the steps, point-to-point, it required multiple attempts to get them synced.

Users would need a strong, stable internet network as the air purifier connects with the router and then finally syncs with the mobile app. Connecting the gadget with the app would be even more difficult for a non-tech-savvy person. Even for techies, it might take a couple of attempts! That said, operating the Sharp QNET SmartAir Air Purifier FJ-J50 becomes instantly easier once connected with the app. You can control and monitor the gadget as well as the air quality.
