We tried a filter free kind before and YUCK! FILTERS ARE THERE FOR A REASON.
With this humidifier, I can actually sleep. A day when I forget to turn it on (rare)?? I wake up with dry skin and mouth. So, it works!!!
Also, the price is right. I had an old Kaz I loved but after 6 years of nearly 24/7 use it was so dusty I feared a fire hazard. So we got this one.
The negatives of this humidifier are as follows:
Auto-mode doesn't really work
The Holmes HM2409-U is fairly loud on either hi or lo setting... It's a constant noise so you get used to it and can sleep through it but at first you'll definitely notice it. Like other reviewers have said, the automatic sensing mode is useless. It cycles on and off for 3 seconds which gets extremely annoying and probably does nothing to humidify.
For $30 this humidifier is worth it, I just leave it on the Lo setting with my bedroom door closed and it works fine, 1 full water tank is half empty by the morning.
Hope it helps!
Also, although it is fairly simple for someone of average intelligence to figure out, there is nothing in the manual about how to fill the tank! An obvious oversight on their part, and just another indicator of the sloppy design/manufacture of this product. The only reason I can give it two stars instead of one is because the manual mode works OK.
The HM2409-U model was much smaller than our previous one, but I had planned to purchase two units anyways. One for our bedroom and one for the hallway which in near two other bedrooms. So far we've had these units for two weeks, and we are feeling much better. No more stuffy noses and no more headaches. I tend to fill both units with regular tap water every night, and since this unit uses a filter I never get that white spray some people talk about. Plus, I would never use a unit that doesn't use a filter Gross! Oh! Yes these units make some noise, but the noise is not very loud. Do the right thing and clean the unit regularly, and everything the instructions say to do, and you won't have any problems.

Unit would never turn off but for a few seconds & then turn on for a few seconds when running with the auto mode turned on.Published on February 20, 2013 by JoJo
I have several other Holmes humidifiers and both are quieter than this one. Also, it is very hard to get replacement filters that really work and aren't a fortune.Published on February 18, 2013 by shaglab
Noisy. It feels like you are running an air conditioner. Makes the room way too cold for the winter months. Would not recommend this productPublished on January 31, 2013 by Dona Maria
Not something I would ever buy again. It cost more then what it is worth. The filters need to be changed on a weekly basis and they are not cheap. Read morePublished on January 30, 2013 by Alice M
I bought this for my living room because you can control the humidity level. I have kept it on the low setting on 35% or 40% humidity. Read morePublished on January 22, 2013 by Jolene
