2.8 Gal. Utrasonic Humidifier is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from N This was my first item. Small amount of any mist discharged. Not worth the money

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product is very noisy and leaked The unit has a high pitched whistle sound that stays at the same intensity no matter what the control level setting. It also leaked all over the counter through what appears to be a strange overflow opening that overflows out of the back of the unit onto the surface that it is sitting on. Note that we had an older model for several years that was quieter and did not leak. It simply stopped working but lasted long enough for us to order another one. But quality of the new unit is not even close to what we need. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaks! I used this humidifier for the first time last night. The tank leaked from the bottom, and at one point there was NO mist coming out of the unit, though I had filled it with one container of distilled water. I am very disappointed with this humidifier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unfortunate early failure, but great customer serv I bought my third of these. But it failed. Holmes was great w/ customer service, and is sending me an upgrade replacement! I consider the failure to be an oddity (bad bearing in the blower motor?, causing noise).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to fill Had it for a few days.Love it so far. Easy lift and fill being I'm disabled.Very quiet compared to my old humidifier and love that there's no filter. Used to buy so many in one season. More cost efficient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I own 5 humidifiers Yep. I'd like to consider myself an expert. I suffered from horrible nosebleeds 2-5 times a day due to the dry Los Angeles air. At the doctor's recommendation, I bought a Vicks humidifier, but it made a whooshing noise that was just too loud and obtrusive to sleep with. I then started purchasing every different kind of humidifier, and they were all badly designed, hard to fill, or too noisy. I saw this on a demo at a neighborhood Do It Center, and immediately knew it was special. It produces a flow of fog (like a Halloween fog machine, but evaporates instantly) and is as silent as they get. I have owned it now for 4-5 years and use it all night, every night. The tank also lasts at least 3 nights of running at half power. The only issue I found with it is that it gathered a scaly buildup of minerals from the extremely hard tap water I put into it. A bottle of CLR and a scrub brush fixes the problem once a year. I came back to the website to buy another one for my college dorm. Thanks for making a great product!
