Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Theobroma Poor design feature, can't easily fill the water tank
The water chamber is designed in such a way as to make it extremely difficult to fill. The "handle" that you carry it by, let's call it the "top," is rounded so when you turn it upside down to take the cap off to fill the chamber, you can't put it down in the sink. It would fall over. You can balance the empty chamber by holding it with one hand while you remove the cap and turn on the water. But then you have to hold the chamber with two hands while it fills. When it's full, even if you don't feel strongly about turning off the water, but just pull the chamber out from under the faucet, you still have to hold it balanced on the rounded handle with one hand while you grab the cap with the other hand, to screw it back on. I can't help but wonder, did anyone test fill it before they froze the design? I definitely would not have bought it if I had known.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HappyPurchaser Excellent buy for the money!
The humidifier was easy to use. Contrary to what others have been saying regarding the water level being hard to see, I have no problem in determining where the water level is. If I can't tell just by glancing, I would go over and tilt the humidifier and you can see the water level move, or shine a light at it. Using the low setting keeps the humidity at the desired level after the initial setup. Refill the container about once a day.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Chester Too noisy with little refief from dry air
It is a small attractive unit. As others have stated, it's impossible to check the water level without removing the water container from the unit. The container is small, doesn't hold much water and is awkward to fill since you need to hold the container with one hand in an awkward position while maneuvering your faucet with the other hand. I have my humidifier in a 144 sq ft bedroom. I run it on high nonstop day and night but have never seen the humidity level reach above 40%. The thing is pretty noisy running on high in a small room. The noise is similar to white noise. Unfortunately, I'm pretty disappointed with it and would not recommend it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by pwrnyc I get angry every single day when I add water.
The unit looks great. But it was designed with concern only for appearance, not for use. Refilling the water supply is unnecessarily difficult- it cannot be placed down on a flat surface when under the faucet --it has to be held, and even worse, the heavy unit has to be held next to the chest in order to close the unit. The part that is on top when assembled should be FLAT,not rounded. It spills on me and on the floor when I carry it back to the room.. I cannot fill it in the bathroom or tub, I have to take it to the kitchen.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Borgey This product greatly improved the quality of air and reduced allergen’s
This product is aesthetically pleasing and functional. I like the fact you are not required to purchase water treatment additives, or cleaning solutions sold through the manufacture. The filter will need to be replaced; but it can be cleaned using bleach at least once before having to purchase another filter therefore extending the use and spending less money in the long run.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Irritatedconsumer Noisy fan over bucket of water
I run a humidifier as soon as the heat comes on in the fall to maintain a comfortable level of humidity and counteract the dry heat in winter. This was not a "cheap" unit and I thought I was ourchasing a quality humidifier. I immediately had difficulty removing the cap to fill it with water. Then it was awkward to hold and fill under the faucet. I am a professional mechanic so I don't typically encounter these types of issues. The humidity control doesn't appear to work unless you have it enclosed in a very small room like a bathroom and keep the door closed. I ran it on medium for four days nonstop and detected no noticeable drop in the water level. It was annoyingly loud and created a blast of air from the top. Seems to work well as a fan but I wanted a humidifier, not an overpriced fan. Upon further inspection it appears to be a bucket of water with a fan on top of it. I have owned much better units for far less cost that actually have timers, humidity controls that work, heated air, night lights and various other features ....and they actually increase the humidity. I have found that it does not perform as advertised so I keep packing it in the basement reluctant to throw it in the trash because it cost so much. So instead I pull it out every year and get angry about my poor choice year after year. I have found that I actually hate this thing and am now trying to think of a fun way to destroy it since I held onto it far too long to return it. I will not make this same mistake twice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff1 This product actually works
I was pleasently suprised within 10 minutes of putting the system on we were able to breath easier and after a nights sleep we awoke to no headache or dried out feeling we used to get living in a steam heat apartment
