Rated 5 out of 5Â by Pleased Works great and produces lots of moisture
I've had this for 1 month running almost continuously. Its output is high- incredibly high on the high fan speed but very loud. The lower fan speed is much quieter and still moves a good amount of moisture. The evaporative design is very simple since it's just a reservoir of water with a wick sticking out of it that the fan blows air through. The benefits of having a humidified home during the winter months when the heating is on are noticeable from day one.
No complaints. Home Depot had a good price too.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by zuesman Good buy for the money.
Reading reviews on this thing I was skeptical. But the convenience of the large capacity water tank was the clincher for me. I am not sure what the complaint about the fan is. The fan sounds like a fan. Hard to find a fan on its highest setting and pushing lots of air, quiet. Its certainly not the motor thats loud its just the air being pulled. Even on its high setting unless you are sitting on it its not bad at all. On the low setting its super quiet. I recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Gillette This is the humidifier you want.
I've been buying home humidifiers for 42 years. This is the humidifier you want. It gets the humidity up to 50% to 60% easily and has a very large tank that is super easy to fill WITHOUT lifting and lugging a heavy water tank bottle (not fun). You just roll this unit on it's wheels over to the sink, remove a small plastic grate plate and either fill it with your extendable sink sprayer or fill a couple of large Rubbermaid pitchers full of water, dump them in and add a tad of bacteriostat. Yes, the fan is loud set on high but you seldom use the high setting because you don't have to run it on high for long. Once you get the humidity up (and it doesn't take this unit long to do that) you turn it on low and it maintains nicely. The low fan setting is VERY QUIET. I have one unit in my bedroom that sits 5 feet from my head and I'm a light sleeper...zzzzzz. I have another unit in the living/dining/kitchen area. The auto humidity works great on this machine, turning the unit on and off based on the humidity level you select. I bought my first two of these two years ago from iAllergy and they still work great here in the extreme dry winter air of Minnesota. I'm on Home Depot's website today to buy multiple units, six of them, so I'm sure to have one of these machines for many years to come (I'm 54 hopefully these will last the rest of my life because this is the best humidifier there is). I'm also here because I want to be able to drive to Home Depot and return one in case I get one that doesn't work (instead of having to ship one back ordered online from iAllergy). iAllergy's are a few bucks cheaper but the ease of returning a faulty unit to Home Depot makes it well worth it to me because I hate to assemble, disassemble, and repack stuff in order to return ship it if there is a problem. But I doubt that will be the case. These work. Don't let your filter dry out or it won't work as well after that. Change filters monthly or every 6 weeks. Wipe out the unit with two teaspoons of bleach in a gallon of water when you change filters. If you have extremely hard water, change the filter monthly. Keeping the filter changed reduces the amount of time the fan has to run to keep the humidity level up, thereby increasing the life of the unit.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by michael good product
good product, works on 1000 sq ft apartment very well. filters are not of real good quality will not last a full season, a little pricey but works better than most, very quiet on low fan setting, located in hallway next to furnace intake and keeps whole apartment with the same humidity on low setting, very easy to service just a box that the fan sits in with the filter/wick in the box, will run down to less than a gallon before auto shutoff.then just take to the tub and clean with a rag or brush. have to be careful to get the fan/top part lined up with the bottom as the tank tends to flex.
