Z1 CPAP Machine Pros and Cons

Pros of Z1 Auto Travel Cpap Machine

It is almost unanimously agreed to the fact that quietness is the most important factor when it comes to having to sleep with Z1 CPAP machine.  Noise can disturb even the most deep of sleepers so it is extremely important that you make sure that the machine you get is quiet, not just for you but for your spouse or partner.  The best thing about this device is that even though it is small, it so extremely quiet.  Not even a gentle hum escapes the machine.  It is amazing that technology has come as far as it has with this equipment.

Z1 Auto Travel CPAP Machine Cons Though this machine is extremely quiet, you can run into trouble with how much power it can generate.  Depending on the severeness off your sleeping problem, his machine may not be strong enough to handle your issue in an efficient and comfortable way.  The humidifier attached to the machine also has to be replaced constantly.  It can be unreliable and because of that many may want to stay away because of possible problems looming ahead in the future.  The device is clever in what it is able to do, but the engineers didn’t pay particular attention to it’s design.  Some say that they find it unappealing and so light that that even the slight moment from the hose can flip it.

The VerdictZ1-Travel-CPAP-Machine-Review-1

The Z1 CPAP Machine is definitely a good first try with integrating premium features into a device that is inexpensive and small.  However it is lacking the things that make the best CPAP machine.  I can’t recommend anyone buy this unless it is to be in their closet for an emergency situation.  There is simply too much to be desired that you could get with something else that cost a tiny bit more.

  1. The price along with the reviews tell me that the Z1 Travel CPAP Machine will likely be the one I go with. I love how small it is and that I can just chuck it in my carry on without missing out on much space. I watched a video on Youtube unboxing one and I am really impressed. For the cost, it is VERY well made.
