Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rebka 1 month, constant use, no problems, super-easy to clean
VERY easy to clean! All areas of unit entirely accessible. Quiet, puts out generous vapor. Have had it running day and night, at home and at work, for a month, and so far so good. (Be careful if using sprayer to clean out water pan area of base; one of the protrusions is a heat vent for the motor and spray can get into the electronics. This is not a problem if one uses normal caution or just tapes a baggie over it temporarily. Even when I had to open up the base to blot droplets off the internal parts it was a simple, easy to reassemble design anyone should be able to manage.) This unit appears to be good quality. If it's still working a year from now, I'll consider it top of the line.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John Excellent product
The humidifier has been working very well since I bought it a few weeks ago. Very easy to fill with water, and it takes about 3 days without the need to refill.
Green lights are pleasant to see, and the controls are easy to understand and work with.
Stops automatically when there is no water.
One can select the amount of humidity percentage, and is very quite.
The "steam" goes as high as 3 feet and there is a switch for high or low output.
There is no need for filters which is a great thing, one less worry in our lives.
The unit is very pleasant to see and the price is reasonable, specially if we consider the features of this nice machine.
I am very pleased with it, and I strongly recommend to anybody that wants a reasonable price excellent humidifier. Deserves 5 stars, no less.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 2524hen Needs to have a filter!
Used part of last winter. Worked well as far as distributing moisture. Downside: without a filter a white film covered EVERYTHING - glassware in closed cabinets, even got in the controls of electronics -EVERYTHING! This happened within days of initial use. When I realized it was the humidifier causing the problem I quit using it. As far as appearance - very attractive - but I didn't buy it for appearance. I didn't have the sales slip any more, so discarded the item.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by idrdnk Not so great
I bought this about the second week of December 2013 and it worked great for about two months. It fairly quiet and is easy to use and maintain. It sprung a leak where the transducer is in the bottom of the unit. It soaked all of the electronics in the bottom and popped the GFI plug in that it was plugged into. Started leaking in the middle of the night and made quite a mess on the counter where it was sitting. Everything was soaked. I would not trust one these. Use at own risk.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by LDinNJ I know what the "funny" noise is
I used this last winter 2012~2013 without issue. This season (2013~2014) it worked for a couple months and then began making noise after being on for a couple hours. It sounded like electric sparks at first. Since we use it in our bedroom, the noise makes it hard to sleep.
I opened it up and found that the noise is the fan blades hitting the chamber surrounding the fan. I took mine apart to investigate the noise and found the fan shaft has some play in it and when it retracts toward the motor, the fan blades hit the plastic housing. The chamber is designed to force air in from an opening and out the upper shaft so cutting the plastic away would defeat the purpose of the chamber. After reassembling the unit, the noise changed pitch, but was still present. Wife was reading to throw the thing out the window one night because she couldn't sleep. It is now headed for the trash and we are now shopping for a replacement (not the same one obviously).
I'm giving this a 2 instead of 1 because I liked the Ultrasonic feature and that aspect worked well. Otherwise the poor fan assembly ruins the whole unit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RFChicago Great Product
Well, it took me some time to find one in a store and the Home Depot inventory listing were iffy. But the store folks did a massive search and found me one. This is an exceptional product for the price point. It is silent, cleans easily and lasts for days without refilling. The only drawback is that it is nearly impossible to get the Sunbeam tablets. Only Amazon stocks them and not many. Recommended.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MikeyVegas Feels like a good deal
Being from New England I know the great need for adding some humidity to the dry winter air of a house. When I moved to Las Vegas I couldn't find an adequate humidifier for the year long dry air. Almost impossible to find in stores except for the child vaporizer type. I found this one on HD online and had it shipped to the local store for pickup. I think I made a good choice. It goes on and off without a problem when set to the desirable humidity. Definitely adds a comfortable moisture to the bedroom.

Very pleased with this humidifier. It is quiet, and the reservoir is easy to fill with water. Just bought a second one as a gift.
