    Worked great for a few days.

    This device was promising. After a few days, the benefit was clear. Less irritate noses, eyes, and generally more pleasant sleeping experience. Unfortunately, it only lasted a few days. The water tank isn't one solid piece of molded plastic, its constructed. It has seams. These seams developed leaks. Small nearly undetectable leaks. If it weren't for the towel we kept nearby to catch water as we remove the tank for refilling, we wouldn't have noticed. It was soaked as was the counter the device was placed upon. We threw away the box after a few days because really... for this price point and device simplicity we didn't expect problems. Of course it sprung a leak! We just wrote it off as a loss and junked it. Good luck if you decide to give this guy a whirl! Also, if you do, please note that the handle looking thing at the top of the water container is NOT a handle. Instructions explicitly say this. Just be weary, because its odd shape makes using it as a handle tempting.

    First edition woes

    Posted
    JBoston

    I think this must be the first edition off the line for the Droplet because mine still has kinks to be worked out. First, it does not come with a demineralization filter as described on the Best Buy website. Second, the filter that the box states can be used is incorrect and doesn't fit (this was acknowledged by the Crane rep when I called customer service). Third, the replacement filters they sent cause the humidifier to stop functioning at intervals. I think they need to take this model back to their engineers for refinement before it hits the shelves again...

    Very let down by all there lower end products this is the third humidifier going on in less than six months and it's a point where I'm just going to bite the bullet and buy one for three or $400 that I laugh because now if I don't re-order all of them or find all the receipts this company will not replace the humidifiers under their warranty which I did send in and they told me that was not warranty paperwork so I feel like this company does not stand behind their products since the first time I plug this in and use the proper water it went everywhere

    Nice Clean looking Humidifier

    We purchased this for our infant son who kept getting congested. This is a nice, sleek looking humidifier that doesn't look like and albatross sitting out in the open. The compact size is great and easy to operate. This version is nice with the digital interface of Low-Med-High. While a dial could serve the same function, the digital control add a more modern feel to the device. The item does start to get some slime after a couple of weeks (like an humidifier), but is easy to clean with vinegar and water.

    Does everything advertised

    Does exactly what is advertised. Personally I would prefer a bigger one as refilling water every day becomes hassle, especially since we get hard water and I need to go downstairs to fill up filtered water. Works fine for smaller room, I do see cool mist, however it takes several hours for our master bedroom hygrometer to go from 30 to 50%. At the base of the water holder, there are few minor parts where cleaning even with a brush is not easy, could have been designed better. However it does everything as advertised so not deducting any points.

    I bought one of these units hoping to improve my air humidity. It definitely seemed to help. But that help was short lived. After a few weeks of use the unit developed a leak in the seam between the water chamber and the bottom of the chamber that rests on the base. I woke up one morning and water was everywhere. The price was so cheap that I didn't even bother to request a refund. Just not worth it. Look for units that have more robust build quality and that has a more accessible and functional handle.

    Great Unit

    This is a great cool mist unit. it works well, last all night and longer. It produces a lot of mist, is very quit, and a great looking unit and color. It has 3 settings for the amount of mist produced and I've noticed that even on the lowest setting it produces a very good amount of mist. The only issue that I personally have with it is the smell of the mist produced since this is ultrasonic. It bothered me a bit at first since I was not used to it, it is something that might bother some.

    I don't have anything to compare this with but it seems to be working out well. I run it overnight in my bedroom which is pretty small. I feel less dried out and my nose hasn't bled once this winter, which is remarkable. I like the no filter aspect, it's easy to take care of and clean once a week. I read another review that said the handle broke right away so I'm treating it gingerly, but I've had it for a month or so and no problems at all.

    Absolutely Silent and Easy to Use

    I love this humidifier because it literally makes no noise. You can't tell it's on until you can see the mist coming out of the top. It's a little dark in our bedroom and when we first turned it on, we thought it wasn't working. LOL! I love that you can sort of direct the mist because of the curved top. It doesn't sputter water and the mist is so fine that it doesn't appear to accumulate on anything. This ain't your grandmother's humidifier. They have come a long way.

    I was a little skeptical when it came to buying a humidifier. I did not think I needed one. However, this winter has been so dry and there has been a lot of static that I gave in and bought one. The very next day, there was no more static in the house and my allergy symptoms started to decrease. I am very happy with my purchase. It is easy to clean and is not messy at all. I highly recommend it.

    I purchased this humidifier almost a month ago and have used it every night. What I like about it is the easy to fill tank, settings and nozzle adjustment. I also appreciate that it turns itself off when the water runs out. Since it is small you will need to close the door to the room you use it in unless you live in a closet like Harry Potter. Otherwise a great deal for a smooth running product.

    It's been awhile since we purchased this, prolly 2-3 months. It's doing ok. I should clean it often with the suggested vinegar and water rinse. Still works fine. Very quiet. Little gurgly sounds sometimes .. when water fills up the bottom.. (cute sound.. doesn't bother me or the babies). Fine cool mist. Doesn't leave my floor or bed wet. Good product.

    I suffer from allergies and a friend suggested I use a humidifier.. after doing some research and comparing prices I decided to try this one... I also liked the shape and look. I have to say i was very hesitate but very surprised at how well it worked. The best part is you can add essential oils which enhances the experience. I am def. happy with this purchase!

    Bought this as a replacement for another larger humidifier that was too cumbersome to lug around as much. This humidifier is smaller, carries enough water for two uses. This is fine because you don't want standing water around and you should at least rinse out the machine on a regular basis if you are using it that long. The directed nozzle is nice too.

    Too small

    I thought this was bigger. It's only a half-gallon size - not big enough to humidify a bedroom. The box says its sized for a medium bedroom. Don't believe it. I will be returning it. I have another one for my kids' room, but it's the gallon size. Mo would recommend that one. Nice output and clean. I've had that one for a year now. No mildew.

    Crane products are some of my favorite. They do a great job of combining style and function. I have a small open floor plan, or a loft. This is the only humidifier we have and surprisingly enough, it covers the whole 600 sq ft. I don't think that was their intention, but it does. Highly recommend this product.

    My hygienist recommended that I use a humidifier at night due to dry mouth and breathing problems. This humidifier is small , but very quiet ,has 3 settings and really delivers. I have used it for a week and can ffeel the difference. Also, living in AZ, it helps hydrate the skin.

    great design and have had other Crane products in past- this particular model is a bit small for the room we use it in but have had no problems with it what so ever- would totally recommend but just look at size of unit vs size of room better than i did!

    Looking at several of these online I was worried that I would be refilling constantly. I have a 12 x 14 bedroom and this little gem is quiet and works wonderfully. I fill it every two days. But not sure I want water sitting inside my house for very long. Anyway... great buy.

    We ordered this because of the reviews but were disappointed by the color which is more of a lavender/white. It does not look like the photo. I can't comment on how it works because it is being returned!
