    • an easy way to boost humidity!
      Verified Purchase

      The humidifier is very quiet and dispenses mist effortlessly. The only fault we found is there is only one way to refill unit. The reservoir has to be removed completely and taken to sink. Would have liked a opening at the top of unit to make refills easier. It is tall, sleek and works well-does not need a filter which saves money too!

      wish it put out more moisture, even at max it doesn't put out as much as it does, which is why it says it lasts so long

      I bought this humidifier several years ago. Needed a new one and I was able to get it from overstock. Reasonable price. Works great. Except it does give off a lot of white dust from the minerals in the water.

    • Problematic with constant use

      This unit works fine for occasional use as a cool mist humidifier (like in the case of someone with a cold or sinus issues), but as a daily room humidifier, it fails. For one thing, in order to spread the mist around the room, we had to set up a fan across from it to disperse the mist - otherwise the mist went straight up and then straight back down, creating a puddle of water on the dresser we set it on, and damaged the wood. The out of water indicator does not do anything - the unit will continue to run when bone dry. Last but not least, there's no way to really clean the inside of the directional mister, and ours was infested with mold in less than a week, even with the recommended anti-bacterial water additive (which is costly). Very gross! Who wants moldy mist in the air? Not us!

      Good product, however during the night the humidifier makes noise upon refilling the base with water and can cause you to wake up. Other than that, the product is good and helps with breathing during the night.

      I like this unit because it doesn't have a filter, but it is very noisy.

      "Permanent filter?? Are you sure? I have never seen an ultrasonic humidifier that uses a filter... that's what sets them apart.

        You are correct. This item features filter-free operation.

      "does this have a timer on it that you can set for how long you want it to run?"

      • A:

        No it doesn't

    • Q:

      "is the water tank removable for washing"

      • A:

        Yes. the permanent filter washes clean easily and can be reused so it never has to be replaced
