At the beginning, it worked fine, not too much noise.

This happened 4 times (one hour) before it started to work.

Reset button would not shut off & hence it did not work.

I actually bought this because some of the reviews say it was loud. We run loud humidifiers to combat traffic noise in our bedrooms. This sucker is QUIET. You can hear a mouse fart with this thing on.

Other than that it works like it's supposed to. We kept it as a humidifier because it works so well for that and we just use the loud ones for noise.

I got this unit on a special deal for $12 including shipping. It worked quite well until the reset button came on. And here's the deal -- once the reset button comes on, be prepared to waste an hour (or more) getting it to come on again.

To give you an idea of what I'm referring to, here are the exact user manual instructions (for what to do when the reset light comes on):

"RESET PROCEDURE
NOTE: When the water tank is empty and the water in the Heating Chamber is almost empty, the Automatic Shut off will activate. The RESET Light will illuminate and the unit will not operate again until you refill the water tank and reset the humidifier.
1. Turn the power knob to RESET.
2. Unplug the unit.
3. Remove and refill the water tank, being sure to follow the Daily Maintenance Instructions. Replace the tank onto the base.
4. Wait 15 minutes for the Automatic Shut-Off to reset.
5. After the 15 minutes, plug in the unit and turn the Power Knob, to HIGH. The RESET light should now be off (if not repeat steps 1-5). In about 10 minutes, the humidifier will begin to produce moisture.
If the reset light is still on at this point, and the unit does not begin to produce moisture within a few minutes, then repeat steps 1-5."

Even THIS much would be a pain IF it worked as described. However, what you're actually doing is following the instructions above, watching the RESET button immediately come back on (unplugging and waiting another 15 minutes) and trying it all over again. I've been trying for TWO DAYS to get the reset button to shut off.

To my surprise, the instructions advise to run the washable parts through the dishwasher DAILY (!!!!).

I've had this humidifier for a year now...it works great---no leaks, no issues with the reset light (it only goes on when out of water). I put the water in at night, wait 3 min. for the unit to fill, then turn it on. Yes, the unit does make some bubbling sounds, but it isn't too loud and doesn't bother anyone in our family. In the a.m. the reset light is on because all the water has been used. Then, we start the whole process over again. I would definately buy this again.

I've owned other humidifiers and the benefit of this one is it's easy to use - and best of all, easy to clean and maintain. There are no filters that gunk up, you don't have to do a regular 'white vinegar' soaking to clean.

I read some of the other reviews and can only conclude those persons weren't using it correctly. It does a pretty good job humidifying and it's not possible for it to leak if you put it together correctly. It is a little on the loud side but all humidifiers make noise. This is not by far the noisiest or quietest, but bang-for-the-buck wise, it's a good deal.

This is my second one I got it for my employee. It is easy to use for people who doesn't like to learn the new thing. It is perfect for small room, not eat up your spaces.

We bought this humidifier when our son began daycare and....You probably know the rest...This humidifier helps us tremendously. It does take a little while to figure out how it works but even though I am not a physicist, after reading the manual carefully and trying it a couple of times, I figured it out and our machine works perfectly. It is not noisy, nor does it leak (though, as a precaution, I still keep a thick towel under it). We placed it on our Ikea chest drawer so it is beyond the reach of our son. I like its simplicity--it has a high and a low setting, and a reset. No filters = no extra expense. We operate it on high in our master bedroom (mid to large size) and it is perfectly efficient. I even bought a protection plan--looks like we are going to need it as long as those daycare viruses are around!

After trying to find replacement filters for different humidifiers for years, I saw this model. For $29.99, it was worth a shot! It is much quieter than other humidifiers I have had, just a little bubbling every once in a while, no constant noisy fan noise. The only time my reset light came on was when it ran dry - which it's supposed to do. No problem, just fill it up again. I'm actually buying another one. I have had no problems with leaking at all. I think it works great!

I have had this for 3 winters and needless to say, it worked great. It just consists of an heating element and water to do the job, how hard is it, no moving parts etc., You need to correctly place the tank and should be able to see couple of bubbles fly by. Then you are all set for the night. Helps breathing, sinus besides keeping the room nice and warm.
