    I made the mistake of buying a Vick's CoolMist humidifier when my kids were babies. The filter gets gross and moldy and has to be replaced often. You could also never tell if it was really working as there was no "steam" visible. The Crane has no filter, is very quiet, and I like that you can see what's being put into the air. I also like the directional vent that can put the steam where you want it. I like this one so much, I'm thinking I will purchase another for the dry winter months ahead. Also would like to get the personal humidifier for my nightstand. The Crane brand is excellent.

    We bought this for the bedroom of an exchange student because our area is much dryer than where he is from. He ran it at night while he slept and we were able to run it for over a week before the water ran out. It was quiet at produced a cool vapor that could be adjusted from low to high. Seemed to work well.

    We did a lot of research into different cool mist humidifiers before settling on this one, and we are very happy with the decision. We selected the Crane Drop Humidifier because we thought it would be the one to best meet our needs and it does. It is good value for the money spent (We even got it on sale!) Runs pretty quietly. Hold enough water to run for a whole day on a moderate setting. And definitely helps with the dryness we were experiencing with the winter heat. I would recommend that you should follow the cleaning directions, with weekly cleanings with vinegar to avoid built up and a potential manky smell. A video on clean up can be found on amazon. Definitely a good buy - I would recommend it for a medium to large size room. A humidifier is a must in winter, but this will be effective all year round.

    I returned 3 humidifiers prior to purchasing (and sticking with) this one! I love that it's cool mist (no risk of burns to my toddler or myself), has a rotating nozzle (I can direct it so the mist goes away from my electronics or papers and toward the person needing the mist), is SO EASY to clean, and is compact in size. I cannot possibly capitalize enough on how easy it is to clean. That was why my family and I returned other humidifiers - we couldn't get them clean and therefore they were not only NOT able to be used to do their job but we ended up feeling concerned that mold and mildew would build up and ADD to our problems. This is NOT the case with this little (little in size; not power) humidifier; we LOVE it. We use it every night in our toddler's room and purchased an additional one for our room! It's so easy to clean that we never procrastinate cleaning it and/or refilling it - which is another pattern we'd fallen into with past humidifiers! Seriously; we feel this is the best choice for humidifiers in this size range!

    Nice looking standard ultrasonic humidifier

    This is one of the best looking (in my opinion) humidifiers out there, it compliments our decor (white) and I know other colors are available as well. The light feature is nice - not too bright so that it keeps anyone up at night, but enough that you see it at night and don't accidentally knock it over. The green light turns red when it is time to refill. Refilling involves lifting the tank, and it usually drips water on the way to the sink, and then the screw cap is sometimes hard to align and affix properly. There is the standard ultrasonic humidifier problem of mineral deposits collecting in the base, which means it needs a cleaning about every week. I would give this 3 stars (average) but since I like the way it looks, it gets 4 stars (good).

    I am using this this humidifier since last two weeks. This thing fits the bill. The design is great, it's super quiet, and gets the job done. I am pleased by the design (bought the transparent one). I read the owner's manual (quick and easy). The manual explained 1) how to adjust the mist as to not wet the furniture around it 2) machine will turn off when empty, but the light on the device will turn red. Obviously the part those that said the machine did not turn off failed to read 3) how the machine is easy to clean with a vinegar or chlorine solution. I recommend using white vineger. Lastly, the sound the comes from the machine is very subtle, but when u hear it, it is exactly like the soothing sounds of a filter running on a fish tank. It actually helped me sleep. I Also use this humidifier for my indoor plants, and I am sure they are blooming. My skin and nose are happy as well

    I did a TON of research on humidifiers. I wanted one that didn't take a lot of effort to clean and refill. This one is super easy to fill and cleaning is pretty easy as well. It can be a little messy when filling and cleaning just due to the design. But it's not as bad as some people wrote in some reviews I read. After all, it's only water. It works very well and doesn't saturate the nearby floor area or furniture. I definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a quiet, durable, easy-care humidifier.

    I love how quiet this machine operates. It's easy to use, provides a great mist. I think that it can get quite messy when changing/adding the water, but the water can last up to two days or so depending on the setting and if you only use it at night. Setting the amount of mist is a little strange since there isn't an indicator as to what level you're on. You basically have to look at the amount of mist coming out and accept the setting that looks the best. The light that it produces can bother some people, but overall, I think that this is an excellent, well-designed product. Works very well.

    This is my second one purchased for another room. My first one purchased 2 years ago and still going strong. No filters and easy to clean the basin. Works well for one room, and I keep it up high so the mist has time to evaporate in air without reaching carpet. If placed low just turn down the mist. For the cost this is an excellent product. only takes a solid few hours to notice the difference in humidity. Cons: the actual water reservoir is hard to clean, but if you rinse frequently not a problem.

    This is the second humidifier I bought for my wife. The first humidifier was a Pure Guardian humidifier brand. It failed the first day we bought it. We took it back to Best Buy and exchanged it for Crane's humidifier. Not only it was cheaper than the Pure Guardian brand, it also works well, and has a very nice and cool mist, and very quiet.

    Purchased after looking at reviews and this one was perfect for our situation. Using in a smaller room and wanting something quiet and efficient. Have used every night and has helped with sinus issues of a dry air room. First night i used it took awhile to get to sleep because of the light and slight noise. After second night there wasn't a issue at all. I recommend this product. Good purchase

    Over all I love it. No filters to replace, no hot water to turn to mold over night. No need to stock up on distilled water to make it work. Cleaning instructions recommend vinegar, love natural cleaners. Easy to clean. Love the auto off. Easy to move from room to room where ever it is needed. Settings are handy for little steam keeps it going longer or heavy steam when you need it. Only thing is the cap to the water tank can be tricky to get on perfectly straight, so it won't leak a little.

    This little buddy is quiet and easy to use. We have very high ceilings and I don't feel like the room is that humid when we use it. However it does shoot a nice cool mist right out of the top effectively and most of the water is used up overnight. I think this is more an issue of the extremely dry climate in the Colorado winter. However, we are happy with this machine.

    The first one I brought home was not working. The internal fan would not run. It took me a while to figure out what was wrong. I exchanged it for another one at my local BestBuy. The second one works perfectly. I like the style and how quiet and effective it is. I assume my first experience was a fluke. The return was easy and I am happy with the replacement unit.

    I really like this humidifier. I needed a new one and saw this one at BB one day. I had considered an ultrasonic humidifier before, and had seen the Crane teardrop shaped ones. BB had a grey one and I really liked the color as it was more subtle than the blue and white model that you typically see (or the bright colored ones). It runs pretty quietly with just a slight hum. If you leave it on high it will put out about two tankfuls per day, which is about two gallons. It is rated for a medium sized room, but it humidifies my entire apartment fine. One caveat, it will leave white dust from minerals in the water unless you use distilled water. The dust mostly sticks to the black plastic on a laptop and isn't too bad on other furniture, so is only a minor issue. Once the air is humidified, you can turn it down to about half level and it keeps the air at a comfortable level -- where you DON'T GET SHOCKED every time you touch any metal in the apartment. My skin and sinuses feel much less dry now as well. The other colors were on sale, but the grey one was not when I bought it, but the extra $10 was a small price to pay for the grey. It has an LED light that is green when it is running and turns red when the water runs out. The tank on the grey one is translucent rather than clear like some of the other colors, and the whole tank gets a subtle green glow in the dark. It isn't too bright to keep in the bedroom though, so it actually works well as a nightlight if you need one. The top piece swivels and allows you to slightly aim the mist. I highly recommend this humidifier.

    got it at good price for thanksgiving. it is ok for the small room but doesn't work well in a larger room. have to refill the water too often that could be a pain and clean it too to avoid product being clogged and making loud sounds. it is good designed- other than that nothing spectacular.
