Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sc easiest way to fill is....
This thing really will put out the moisture. The only problem is the fill method is stupid. From the moment I took it out of the box I realized that the fill spout would never work, or at least I would never use it. But ,like I said, the moment I took it out the box I realized how easy the top assembly comes off the unit. to refill I simply lift the top assembly off, wheel the unit to the sink, fill with hose or bucket, wheel back, replace top. very easy, no spill.
The ceramic tile is real ceramic and it matched my decore perfectly.
I did find, however, that I need to run the humidistat much higher than the setting I want to achieve. I run it at 60% to get 40-45% at the other side of the room. Not a big deal but just a word of warning.
I do think this unit is overpriced. I feel like it should have been less than $100. That being said it is one of the least expensive humidifiers for the capacity it puts out.
I am heating my 16'by 80' mobile home with a pellet stove. Last year my r.h. was around 14-16% I was 80f all winter with 4 ton of pellets in central Maine. Very cold outside. this year I want to maintain a 40%r.h. and drop the temp to 75f. we shall see.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kd Good purchase
The fan is loud when the fan speed is set above 1, however I have not had a need to set it higher. You should consider where you will place the humidifier in your home as the air comes out of the humidifier on both sides rather than the top or front. I like how attractive it is for a humidifier; however with the air coming out on both sides I found it challenging to find a good location for it as I didn't want it blowing out onto my furniture.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dierolf69 very much suggest this item
Read the many different reviews, saw this unit at another store and liked the overall dimensions, but was unsure how it would perform, and sound. After a quick delivery from homedepot.com, I set up this unit in no time at all, filling is very easy with the door - I would only suggest a slightly larger door but it works, the controls are super easy and quick. the LOW speed is whisper quiet, the other speeds (9 altogether) are louder but ok. Not sure how accurate the display is at telling the humidity , I have wall mounted old fashion gauge that says different than the digital by about 15. So overall I would highly suggest this unit, price, performance, appearance and size !!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Frustratedfan Worked great while it lasted.
I purchased two of these units and they worked great. After about 40 days however one of the units fans quite working. The display still works but nothing else regardless of the setting. Hopefully the other one does not meet the same fate soon!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Firephotog Exactly What We Needed
Have had the unit approx 4 wks. House is 2500 sq ft. Previous trouble with dry Indiana winter. Does a great job for us with fan setting of #1. Our main living area is 30x15 plus large kitchen area and master bedroom. House much more comfortable now. Watched the on-line video at HD on unpacking and set up. All very easy. We fill the unit 1x/day. We process about 2 gal of water a day. Fan setting above 2 is too loud but a setting of 1 or 2 does a great job for us. Unit is nice looking. We have it in our main living area. We fill it using the front fill door or we take the top off. Either way works fine. We tried to use the extra fill piece. We spilled using it. No spills using only the fill door and a pitcher. Set humidity at 50%. Unit works great for our needs. Would recommend this unit.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Badger Sort of OK
Unit looks decent. Somewhat large. If you have a power glitch, the unit does not reset. Fan is noisy on any setting above 3. Have had it for 3 months and one of the segments on the digital display has failed. My last unit was a roto-belt type from Sears. Had it for I think over 30 years. I don't think this one will last that long. The price on this one is it's best selling point.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sammiepeeps Works well!
We live in So Cal in the desert mountains so this time of year is dry especially with our pellet stove on. We got this because I kept having headaches and bloody noses in the morning. After a few days of being set at 50% (instead of 9, lol) we've noticed a huge difference. We did put it in our room so I can't really comment about the square foot coverage. It's pretty easy to add water to the tank with the funnel thing included, I wish it were easier to see the fill line though. The sound level on 1 is very nice, acts as a white noise. Overall, very pleased with this.
