The translucent water tank is easy to fill and monitor and outputs about 1.2 gallons of moist air into the room--enough for 18 hours of continuous use on one filling. Impurities or minerals in the water are trapped in an antibacterial wicking filter so vapor is pure and is emitted without any white dust. When the tank is empty, it totally drains without leaving any potentially bacteria-laden standing water in the bottom. Two settings--high and low--let you adjust the humidity level to the appropriate room size or moisture level and Vickss special "evaporative technology" also kicks in to ensure that rooms maintain the proper moisture level and are not overly humid. This humidifier has a dishwasher-safe tray for hygienic cleaning and is covered by a three-year warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde

When I went to the store I wanted a cool mist one, as cool mist would be nice in my room that is hot and dry during the winter. I expecte a misting machine, this thing doesnt mist, but I'm happy it doesn't after reading all the review of people with soggy carpets because of their misters...
Since having this I haven't felt as dry in the morning which is nice, I breathe easier and started feeling better. It a little louder than some but if you dont like the noise, turn down the speed to lower at night, I personally like some background noise and keep it on high.
The water last for a long time in these ones that use these wicks. There is only one downfall, mine is about a month old and the filter is getting pretty nasty already, although I admit my room is a dusty place and I've been using tap water. Apparently if you use those cheap 1 gallon Distilled waters the filter wont get all dirty or smelly as easily, as distilled water is pure, and tap water well....no matter what you think isn't ;).
PRO: Humidifies room with few refills and doesn't soak room.
CONS: The filter gets moldy/dirty pretty quick.
Hopefully this is usefull, I'm happy with it and I'm sure you'd be.
We purchased another unit for our second child's room. Strangely, this unit worked differently than the first. The second one leaked (very litte - nothing a hand towel under the unit couldn't fix) and was MUCH louder than the first. I also found that I needed to refill this unit more often than I did the first.
I didn't see too much of a problem with the difference, just thought it was worth mentioning...
There are a couple of "buts" that a prospective buyer should be aware of:
First, if you don't correctly and firmly re-seat the reservoir in the base, you're going to have water everywhere. Both my wife and I have inadvertently created a puddle of water on the counter and floor simply by putting the darn thing in crooked. Kind of a design flaw in my opinion, but in the long term, not anything that would make me hesitant to recommend this product.
The second thing to know is that the filters for this unit (which are about $5 apiece) don't last more than 2 weeks during daily use. I'm sure it's good that they don't last forever, and based on the discoloration on them it's pretty clear they're doing their job, but be aware that this will be an ongoing expense when using this product.
All in all, a pretty nice unit, albeit with the caveats listed above!
It only has two speeds, low and high. HIgh is somewhat noisy, but what you would expect. However low is whisper quiet, you can't even really tell it's on at all. I have a somewhat large room 17x14 or so, and it easily keeps it humid in here (I have a clock that has humidity on it, and can see the difference). As far as replacement filters, it appears as those are reasonable as well.
It doesn't have any real features, but it works and it has worked well for me so far with no complains. Quiet, cheap, and humidifes, it's win-win.
