    Great for a short while, then leaked like no other

    Bought 2 of these units to add moisture in the air during the winter time when the heater is running more. I liked the looks, the 1.2g capacity, and the large fill opening at the bottom. Everything was good for a few weeks, the units allowed adjustment of flow and the light was a nice little feature. Well, both units decided a few weeks was long enough as I woke up to a huge water mess in both locations, which actually ruined the flooring. So, I filled them up again, this time near the sink and could see it starting to leak, then I tipped the unit slightly and it basically started pouring out the bottom. Did this on both units. I can't return for a refund now, but I did buy the 2 year plans on them so I will take back to the store for replacements. But, I won't use the new units I get in return, I'll see if I can sell them because I'm not going through this again. Disappointed!

    Purchased in conjunction with air purifier as my wife has terrible allergies and our house is very dry and dusty. Well packaged and ready to use right out of the box. Easy intuitive controls. Fill it and turn it on. Follow recommendations for filling and wipe off any water residue and you will eliminate any issues. Has operated since day one without an incident. On high it will run all night on a full tank and then some. Ingenious backlight so you can tell water level if you want to turn it on. I've gotten into a routine of filling before bed, turn it on and then off while gone during the day. Have not experienced any residue from cool mist on floor or table. Quiet operation, silent on low with increasing loudness on medium and high. Nothing that will keep you awake at night. Highly recommend Honeywell Humidifier and Best Buy.

    Well, I'm able to breathe better when I'm using it. The air in my room isn't that dry anymore and believe it or not I actually noticed a difference as soon as I turned it on because I sat it right next to me. I don't snore as loud at times according to my family, and I no longer wake up in the middle of the night needing water because my mouth is dry from not being able to breathe through my nose. It has definitely helped me, but to each his own. I recommend getting the protection plan too. My humidifier fell off of my bed and the gray outside part broke and I was able to get a replacement the same day because they had 2 more in stock. My bed is about 3-4 feet off the floor, so I don't really blame the build quality at all.

    Leaks!!

    Don't waste your money. It worked for about a month (just long enough so we couldn't take it back) then it started leaking out of the bottom. We cleaned, descaled, etc...still leaks everywhere. We couldn't figure out where it was coming from, and it was ruining our floors...putting more water on the floor than it put in the air. P.S. we used filtered water from day one...didn't make a difference. We ended up throwing it out and getting one of the cheapo vicks steam vaporizers. Which we have had zero issues with.

    Great humidifier

    Wife and I have been looking for a humidifier and we count on reviews for purchases. It generally takes us awhile to find something and this humidifier is wonderful. It’s small, has four levels with led lighting and an easy scroll knob like a computer mouse. It’s simple and elegant. It’s also very quiet. We did just purchase it today but it doesn’t leak, even on full blast you can’t hear it and it’s easy to fill. We can already tell a difference in the bedroom with breathing and the way the room feels.

    Not Happy

    I gave this 3 stars, because I do sleep better when I use this at night and I really like the slot to put my lavender oil. But I would not recommend this product because every morning after using this, the floor under the mist is all wet. I thought at first that the unit had a leak, but it doesn’t. I have a small cool mist humidifier (another brand) in another room and it does not leave the floor wet. I would take it back, but I do not have have the box any longer.

    i bought this for my bf and he loves it. uses it almost every day. easy to use and clean. very little noise. the only thing i am bummed about is that it claims to have something for your essential oils but its only a small slot on the bottom of the humidifier that is not really useful cause you cant smell it. i thought i could add to the water but i cant.

    Wife bought this because our cheap one broke after a year. She liked the design of this one and so far it works great. The tank is big enough to run for 2 days on medium low setting. If you put it on high for 24 hours you can tell. It looked foggy in our 1800 sqft house. Definitely puts out moisture.

    Light Weight, easy to use and it works wonderful. I bought this item because i’m not use to the type of heat I have in my new home. Moving from city life to country life my nose would bleed because of the dryness from the gas heat & this machine did the job along with adding the moisture I needed.

    This is a really fine piece of equipment for the money.. It has a tank light and a essential oil compartment. Plus the handle on the top of tank makes it easy to drop the 1.25 gallon tank into the base after refilling with water. Also the mist control button with 4 LED settings is nice.

    Lots oof adjustable mist and easy to adjust. My only gripe is that you have to pull out the insert and turn it upside down to fill it. It then gets heavy because it holds a lot of tap water and drips when carried back to the unit. However, using tap water saves a lot of money over distilled.

    This humidifier is a little workhorse. I have been running it 24/7 without any problems. It’s quiet and easy to fill. It’s also light and easy to move around even when filled. I was surprised that the mist started as soon as I turned it on.

    We have super dry apartment and this humidifier is awesome. All the ones we have had previously have been really difficult to clean and operate. This one is far better and allows us an easier to clean option with no filters, which are a pain.

    We really like our humidifier. It’s the perfect size to put moisture in the air in our apartment. It’s very quiet and looks very nice. Several of our friends have said how they think it looks great and want to get One too.

    It’s easy to use and works pretty well. I like that I can turn the tower light off, however, the strength lines do not turn off and it’s kind of bright. Also, as it refills itself, it gurgles and they can be a little jarring.

    This is a great humidifier for a bedroom. Love the fact there is no filter and the mist settings are spot on. Can even put scented oils in it. Water lasts on full blast steam for about a day and a half. Solid product.

    Have been running this unit daily now for about 3 weeks, with zero issues. Runs about two days on low between settings. Purchased this unit mainly for the larger tank and it looks way better than most others.

    This humidifier does really well. So well, I fell asleep with it on and woke up to it setting off my smoke detector going off because the room was so filled with humidity. So needless to say, it does the job.

    This humidifier is the first I've ever owned or bought for that matter; after much research. It isn't too bad, but I do no like the white dust it creates. Will update once I've had it long enough...

    So quiet you hardly know it is in the room. Only issue is that you have to lift the water tank out and we have it on a tall bureau so a bit of effort for my shorter wife. Product works fine though.
