I had this humidifier for YEARS now (I'm talking about 5+ years!!), but in white. I have nothing negative to say about it. Small, compact, easy to deal with. Big enough for our bedroom. Yes, it is a loud one, but only if it's on the High setting. It is not as noisy if it's on Low. The noise does not bother us at all since we find it soothing (we can't sleep when it's too quiet).

It works like a charm when our kids are sick, during those dry winter days, etc. It does NOT leak. It will if you put the tank on and remove it while it's filling up the machine... But why would you do that??

So, basically, all to say that it is a great product for it's size and it's price. And let's not forget durable!!

The fan is definitely louder than other humidifiers I've had - the low is around what I like my "white noise" to be at, so it's not a big deal, and the high is just slightly above that. It has a decent sized tank, so I just turn it on high when I leave the house and don't worry about it running out of water halfway through the day. It does seem to take up an unnecessarily large amount of space for the size of the tank though - it wasn't able to be placed in an inconspicuous location like my smaller humidifier (with, albeit, a smaller tank).

I was under the impression it did NOT have a filter, but apparently it does. The info packet says it only needs to be replaced once a season (you don't want it sitting around drying out), but I'm not sure of the repercussions of not doing this are.

It is humidifying my dry Michigan apartment this winter, so for that, I am pleased with it.

I got this for Xmas after asking for one because my apartment is so dry during the cold winter months. I love that it's black and matches the living room. It does the job and works great. The only thing I don't like about it is that it is noisy to the point where the television has to be turned up to block it out.

The unit works well. It is easy to refill and easy to clean. I got this humidifier last year and bought 2 more this year. There is no automatic shut-off, but for the price the humidifier is just fine.

This is a great humidifer. I'm glad I found it through Supreme Hardware. The Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas when I was on vacation had this humidifier. It is easy to use and clean. The lid on it is easy to screw off. My previous humidifier was so hard to fill and turn because I have arthritis in my hands and could hardly open it even with a gripper. This humidifer is just wonderful! I have horrible allergies and this helps me so much using it nightly. I wish I had found it sooner. I would highly recommend this humdifier.

For the price, this is probably the best humidifier you can get. It's really just an over glorified fan, but it works very well, and looks nice for the price.

The tank has a one-way cap on the bottom, which makes refilling a breeze. Just pull out the tank, flip it upside down, and pull off the cap. Fill it up, put the cap on, flip it back over (no leaks!) and put it back on the stand. It holds about a gallon.

I've noticed it goes through this tank about 1.5 times a day (a tank and a half over 24 hours) if I leave the unit on 'low' at all times. I do strongly prefer 'low' because the 'high' makes quite a bit of noise. 'Low' is the perfect amount of white noise for me, honestly, though, and I can't complain about the 'high' being too loud, because 'low' is FINE for the amount of water dispersed and has an acceptable amount of noise.

The build quality is pretty good in this price range, and it works very well. I'd imagine you wouldn't want to let the internal filter dry up, as other reviewers have stated, but it would be simple enough to replace if it ever got very dirty. I'd imagine it will last at LEAST an entire dry season here in Michigan.

Attractive, cheap, and it works. Can't ask for much more - It makes a very noticeable difference in my apartment. You may want two or three units if you have a rather large home or have certain rooms that are more in need than others.

This is a great humidifier. It is extremely easy to fill and operate, simply grab the handle, lift it out, flip it over and turn the knob. Fill it up, close the knob and place it back in. No spills, no fidgeting to get it to snap in place - could not be more simple. There are 3 settings, low, high, and off.

There isn't any visible steam, but I can feel a difference in humidity when used overnight. We got this for our newborn daughter while she sleeps in our room, and it has greatly reduced stuffiness. Since the reservoir is large, it can easily go all night. The only negative I have noticed is it is QUITE loud when running. It's like white noise though, so this might be a great thing for other parents... We may come to love this when we move her to her own room!

It is extremely noisy for the bedroom or living room, so I am not sure where it is practical to locate.
I could not take the noise so I returned mine.

Slow. It's been running for 6 hours and has put less than a quart of water into the air. But to make up for it, the thing is also REALLY LOUD! I'm going back to the quiet hiss and occasional gurgle of a warm mist humidifier. I'll take this into work where the noise will be lost amongst all the rest of the office noise.
