Humidifier of all Humidifiers
Posted by: Kristine from: on
Amazing product! What initially caught my attention was the design of the product, but when I read the features of it, I was intrigued to learn more. My house tends to get dry very easily, which isn't good for myself or my children. I go through a new humidifier almost every year because it either breaks or just doesn't work. What I liked about this was the 99.9% bacteria free bit - does that mean I've been using humidifiers that spew out bacteria filled water?! I've used it for a few days now and have been really happy with it. Once my bedroom reaches the perfect humidity level, the machine turns off so it doesn't overhumidify my room (genius!). The price was a bit of a shock, but I'm seeing this more as an investment piece over the next few years. The other piece that helped justify the price was that it is also a fan, which was another selling point for me since my fan tends to be loud at night. Can't wait for the next piece of technology from Dyson!

Very nice looking and well running machine, has 10 settings for fan speed, and you are able to toggle on the humidification. Takes 3 minutes for the UV warm up and kill the bacteria in the water, but that doesn't take away how well it works. Design is less complex than would be guessed and it is easier to clean than anticipated. It does let you set your room to desired humidity and does a good job. Only thing to emphasize is that it is a cool mist humidifier, and when you are not humidifying the air, then you have a cooling fan, there is no heating.

Best Humidifier at a price. One flaw.
Posted by: TPatrick from: on
I first thought who would pay almost $500 for a humidifier when you can buy them for $50! I've owned many inexpensive ones over the years and hated every one and threw them our after a season or two when the filter etc. got nasty. The Dyson is a breed apart and delivers nice fresh humidity with very little noise, pretty much as advertised. I use filtered water in the unit and after 2 months see no evidence of a need to clean the tank or anything. The only flaw, and it's not insignificant, is that reinstalling the top piece (they call it the loop) after filling the water tank can be a real challenge. Especially when you have to do it daily, every time you fill the tank. The loop is supposed to easily snap in to the water tank, but instead you have to push it down fairly hard and sort of twist and rock it until it snaps in. This becomes a learned skill, but there were times I didn't think it would snap in place. Anyway I still like the way it performs but I think Dyson will need to address this to meet the otherwise high standards of this dehumidifier

Love that it holds so much water. It will last for several days before it needs a refill

Not a lot of humidity
Posted by: rfgf1 from: Chicago on
Having the right tool for the job can make life easier, simpler and more comfortable. And while the Dyson AM10 is a slick-looking piece of kit, it lacks the oomph to keep anything but a very small room at acceptable humidity levels. We have tried various settings (the Auto function is essentially worthless as it only wants to get the room to 40% humidity, which in a Chicago winter means the area immediately around the humidifier is near 40%, but a few feet away it's at <30%#. So we resort to setting the humidity level as high as it will go #70%#, and playing with the fan's speed to spread that moisture around. Except that the amount of moisture it puts out is very small, and the fan cools the room as it spreads humidity.
Verdict? This humidifier is made more for a small room's summer AC-dried air where the overall feel of the room can benefit from a fan blowing cooler, humidified air. In a winter setting where the you need serious humidifying capacity and warmer air, this is just simply not the right tool for the job. We'll have to wait for the heater/humidifier #instead of just a fan/humidifier) before those of us in colder climates can use the AM10.

Got a great deal from Best Buy I love the Dyson humidifier. Uses very little water and the best humidifier I have ever used.

Best humidifier I've tried
Posted by: Derak from: on
I have been using it for a month and not once have I had to deal with the slimy gunk that would grow in the water of other humidifiers I have tried. It is very nice to be able to adjust the level of humidity and the fan does a good job of dispersing it. Also works as a fan so I don't have to store it in the summer

Owned a month and have never been able to use
Posted by: Crashley33 from: on
One would think when you purchase a $500 humidifier and it arrives out of the box broken that a FULL replacement would be sent to you immediately, maybe even next door air? Nope. This was a gift that I recieved before Christmas and the tank arrived broken. I have been waiting since then for a new water tank. Sort of ridiculous considering how expensive the Dyson items are. I am very disappointed in how they handle these types of issues. I have had other Dyson products with warranty issues as well and it is not handled well. Love their products but if anything goes wrong it is a huge pain to deal with the warranty and replacement parts. You are better off buying something less expensive that may work through the warranty and replacing it, than dealing with Dyson if things break.

Great, easy to maintain
Posted by: cywrain from: on
Have always rotated through different humidifiers looking for the best ones, and this one is certainly easy to fill and keep clean and I don't worry about the water growing anything with the UV pre-clean.
