It is not the best or most expensive humidifier I have purchased; but for the price, I am completely satisfied. I hope it lasts through the winter season. The low setting is very quiet and the high setting is like a white noise. I am a light sleeper, so the high setting bothered me for a few days but I am getting used to it. I'm not sure how long the water lasts on high but it does make it through the night. I have kept it running continuously: on low during the day and high at night. I top the tank off morning and night but it has not run down. After all day on low, there is nearly half a tank left. My favorite part of this humidifier is the tank has a handle on top and bottom which makes carrying to and from and refilling under the tub faucet very easy.
I got this humidifier as a baby shower gift thinking it would be a baby friendly humidifier and parent friendly because of the good ratings. I was so happy when I got it and starting using it. I used only distilled water to keep from clogging. I used it for 4 months and it stopped working. I cleaned it to see if maybe it was still clogging for some odd reason but there was not clog to be found. I found out the little pump stopped working. I was very upset because I had only had it for 4 months. If you only want a humidifier for part time use I would recommend this. But I wouldn't recommend it for long term usage everyday. I think that may have been my problem.
I got the black version and have been using it for two weeks straight. It is rated for 650 square feet, but it is more than adequate for my 900 sf apartment. The design is elegant, and completely different than all the other industrial clunky versions. I keep imagining that I Dream of Jeannie will pop out of the top. You can see the water vapor making a gentle cloud, which disperses within a foot or two. I would use it away from cold spots, such as windows, where the cold would precipitate the moisture. The only issue with the setup instructions is that they do not clearly explain the demineralization capsule, which screws onto the reservoir cap, and is packed inside the top reservoir section. - I wondered what was clanking, then found it. Quiet and effective, once my apartment got up to 50% humidity, I reduced the output level to 5 out of 10, using the remote. There are several output spouts that can be chosen depending on how tall you want the spout to be: tallest for on the floor, shortest when sitting higher on a countertop. If sitting on squishy carpet, it might tip, so put a tray under it. Otherwise it seems stable. Refilling requires lifting off the spout (simple) and taking the top half of the vase to a water source, turning it upside down and unscrewing the cap. The top may drip a little when it is lifted from the base, so have a towel handy. Also, have a cloth or something soft to rest the top of the reservoir on, while you have it upside down for refilling. Anyone with problems opening a jar may need help opening the reservoir cap, and once refilled, the reservoir weighs 8-10 pounds. Replacing it on the base is simple, and well marked. The unit chimes pleasantly when it needs refilling and a red indicator light turns on. When operating, there is a light that turns from blue to white depending on output level, and chimes that indicate when you change output levels. The unit does not have a humidity sensor, so it does not turn itself on, and only turns off when out of water.
