Best of all, instead of heating the air it actually cools it slightly (it is basically a small swamp cooler). And because it passively humidifies it is self regulating, it will evaporate less as humidity increases. There will never be a wet area around it.
The only reason it doesn't earn 5 stars is price, call it 4 1/2. It is a small fan and 3 pieces of plastic, hardly justifying the $50 cost. The elements are cleanable, but do wear out and are $15.
I max it out in the bedroom at night, so I have to fill daily, but it is light and easy - rather pleasant! Make the bed, refill the Optimus. I'm on here now to buy the little filter sleeves, which I understand can be washed out but do wear out. I don't want to be caught without. I will mention my oversized Bionair which I use for the primary house is very noisy (IF you put it on high which i do unless it is time to relax) and the Bionaire also takes a long time to fill the two canisters (but lasts for weeks). I would not want it in the bedroom due to the noise and ugly dark grey - this 2 gallon Optimus is perfect.
Update 09.15.2013: Just a few weeks ago I bought new filters like I usually do but something didn't seem to be working like it should. The fan was on but it didn't seem like any mist was being generated and the water in the tank never got any lower, even after a couple of days of almost continuous use. I thought, "Great, it's broken," but as it turns out I bought the wrong filters. They were larger filters for a different Optimus unit so I'm guessing that's why it wasn't working properly. I bought the correct filters and all is well now! It still lasts on high for longer than 24 hours. The fan is quiet but the unit makes a gurgling sound when the water gets pushed so if you're a light sleeper you might want to consider that. Sometimes I have trouble unscrewing the lid to refill the tank because moisture makes it stick. I like that the tray is dishwasher safe and the tank is easy to clean. Still quite pleased with this one!
Update 10.22.2014: Ok the cap is getting quite annoying. It sticks quite a bit and is nearly impossible to open (for me, anyway, but I'm hardly a weakling). Resorted to filling the tank by depressing the spring and slowly letting water fill in.
It is quiet - even on high [fan] speed. For example, it is quieter than a typical computer fan.
So far, so good - the only negative that I can see is that it periodically pulls a small amount of air into the tank. The small amount of air rises to the top in the form of bubbles, which make a little noise. It does not bother me, but for some - it might.
