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.
