Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Inkansas Have had this for several months now
I purchased this thinking it would service a 400 sq. ft room, and hoped it would be an easy clean because the photos didn't reveal the insides of this item. I was very disappointed.
First, the tank which sits under a lid that must be removed to remove the tank and add water only holds approximately 1/2 gallon of water, maybe it's one gallon but it sure looks small. At any rate, if using full time 24-7, this tank needs refilled morning, afternoon and night and then again in the wee hours of the morning. There are no settings on this but one, no high med low, so it runs at one rate only, HIGH.
Fair warning, this humidifier gets HOT, so much so that when you remove the lid to remove the water tank, the tank is almost too hot to handle comfortably. Also, since it gets so hot, it does present a safety issue to watch out for just in case.
On the up-side, since it does get so hot, my house thermostat heat setting could be set 7 degrees cooler because the house felt that much warmer with the HOT mist. Most humidifiers don't get this hot.
Cleaning this is a nightmare. If you have hard water AT ALL, you cannot get your hand into this humidifier to clean the small crater like element. The element is concave and round, there is no way to scrape it and vinegar and water does not help either. As such I have retired this humidifier and purchased another that was priced competitively as it is , safe, easy to clean, and puts out a FOG on high. The water doesn't get as hot, but hey, the trade off is it produces enough humidity to keep me comfortable in my 900 square foot place. If your interested the humidifier I purchased was :
PureGuardian RH4610 120-Hour Ultrasonic Warm and Cool Mist Humidifier, Digital. BEST humidifier I have ever had hands down and I have purchased many over the years.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jnjmom Good for the 2nd Year
I'm used to using humidifiers for a year and throwing it out because it gets moldy and gross inside despite my best efforts.
This one works, is quiet, takes up not too much space and I'm able to use it for the second year. No tiny spaces that make it impossible to clean properly.
The light is a little bright for my taste but I lean a book over it to block out most of the light. It also shuts off automatically when the water is out.

I always check reviews when buying an item, so decided to do my part. We heat our house with a high efficient fireplace. It wasn't long before I developed a nagging cough and realized the dry air was causing it. We bought this humidifier and within a day my cough was gone. Easy setup and within a few minutes we had steam. Easy to fill and ran for 8 hours before it ran out. Machine shuts off and lights up when refill is needed. Works great for our approx. 900 sq ft kitchen/family room area.
