    The best humidifier I have owned so far

    I got sick very easy during winter because of the dryness. So, I normally have 2 - 3 different kinds of humidifiers in my house. I also need to replace older humidifiers or buy expensive new filters every year. I owned a few air-o-swiss as well as Pure Guardian. Previous I owned one pure guardian which has a too bright light. The air-o-swiss puff out the steam too low so I have to put a towel under it so the steam does not wet my floor. This Pure Guardian - Elite solved my three major issues. 1. You can turn off the bright blue light. 2. There is a pipe you can use for steam to come out high and does not wet the floor. 3. No need to buy new filters It is dry here so I think each tank can last between 8 to 12 hours. It is easy to refill too. you just need to take the tank out and refill the water. This review is for the product usage less than 2 month. I am considering buying another one with a bigger tank. By the way, it looks high tech too.

    Owning many humidifiers, I am always looking for something different. I live in an open floor condo so balancing humidity isn't easy. Bedrooms are easy but large spaces are a challenge. This one is a gem! I was somewhat skeptical of the the removable hoses but that turned out to be the absolute best feature (well, there are others). This allows the humidity a circular flow allowing for better balanced even humidity covering a greater area. That is worth it alone! I don't use the timer but is a great feature. There is a light that is rather bright when you set timer, but if you are using at night just turn it away from you. There are so many great things about this product that far out weigh the light feature. Will buy others. Also silver tech so no worry regarding mold.

    Quiet and Dependable (so far)

    It's light weight and has very response electronic touch pad controls. The level of humidity output is clearly visible and changes almost immediately as the control is adjusted. I've been setting the humidity control to 40%, low output, and at night I set the timer for 6 hours and it does exactly what I expect it to do. I use the two pipe extension for the humidity output which helps get the humidity up off the floor and into the room. A design improvement would be to allow the reservoir to be filled from the top. (although the bottom fill design may be intentional to make sure the electronics & reservoir are separated during the fill process)

    No more dry throat in the middle of the night

    Got this to use in our master bedroom. I was having issues with waking up with a dry mouth and throat, not now. We are leaving it run all the time with the extension tube so the mist comes out higher into the room. It took a couple days or so, but now the humidity is staying in the 40%s. I refill every day. There is some white dust on the furniture, but it was expected and okay. Maybe partly from the water I use, and the dust particles in the air? It is worth it to have the air not be so dry. We live in the Reno area of NV.

    Got this one under $100, love it. No complain about white powder, I'm using filter water. The another option that pull me in is warm mist, this is great for Winter. One problem was water tank lid broken after 3 weeks of using, I summited email to customer service on Sat's night and got reply on Monday's afternoon to send out replaced lid. I took a picture of broken lid, no need to send back to company as same refer to company's website. I received less than 4 days. Works again.

    Great one room humidifier

    I bought this humidifier for my sons room in the winter months. This is a great humidifier. I like that you can adjust to either cold or hot mist and also has 3 levels of output. It is small but works quickly. This is the best humidifier we have owned to date and have had no issues in the 3 months since we purchased it. The only thing that I don't like is that I have to fill everyday, that is not the fault of the product just the size that I chose. Highly Recommend for single room use.

    Probably the Best Humidifier in Bestbuy Inventory

    Great design and elegant to look at specially at night. The extension is a plus but optional. The 90 hour is a misnomer because most of the time you want to achieve the full mist immediately so about 12 hrs or so but not 90 hrs. The refilling is underneath and it's quite a hassle when they can easily design it on top. Black is okay but I would advice you to get the white instead because black color gets frosty on all sides and really bad to look at during the day. My wife is now sleeping pretty well after a month long of severe cough.

    I think this is a good humidifier but i dint like the following things with it - its a little heavy product -not that comfortable or handy in filling water due to its big tank -last only for 1 night - may be 10-12hrs even with the full 1gallon tank -for the cost i think we can get a better humidifier. I replaced this with homedics ultrasonic 1gallon oscillating humidifier which is great and gives 2nights for 1 filling on high setting and easy to fill.

    Decided to upgrade our regular humidifier to something fancy. So far this isn't bad. Like the features especially the extension tube for the mist. Nice seeing the mist coming out. Build quality is OK. I think our previous one was a bionaire which was a sturdier build. An important feature to me is ease with removing, filling and placing the water container. My previous one was rock solid, well placed handles, no spilling. This one does a good job, but not great. Still, so far, I would recommend.

    We live in a 110 year old farm house with cast iron radiators. The air gets very dry. W use one on each level of the house throughout the winter (3). This unit replaced an older one that failed. I have never seen mist output like this before! It Pours out mist to the point that you must use the tube extensions to stop the surface the unit is on from getting wet! It'll output several gallons a day all by itself.

    works good - some gripes

    This works great, but there is a diffuser for the steam at the top of the container that just sits loose. This means everytime you refill the container the diffuser drops on the floor. We already lost ours. Everything works great and I'd buy it again, but I figure out how to get the diffuser to stay put (maybe duct tape inside or some shim to hold steady when tipping tank over to refill).

    not great

    The screen light is so bright we have to turn it backwards at night time. We use the extension attachment to help spread the humidity and that works well. I don't feel any difference in output temp between warm mist or cool mist and I bought it for warm mist, so I'm not pleased with its performance. If you have the setting on high and humidity is low it will run out of water in less than 24 hours and you will need to refill.

    Compact and (mostly) quiet

    This is an ultrasonic humidifier, and it works surprisingly well to pump out a very fine mist. We appreciate its compact design and generally whisper quiet operation, though it does let out a little gurgle here and there. Only downside is tha the LED display is overly bright in our dark bedroom. We tend to put a sticky not over it.

    Very nice. Wish the tank was larger.

    I had a 20 yr old very cheap humidifier that attempted to throw drop of water into the air. This is nothing like that. Using ultrasonics this unit creates the finest mist - adjustable in 3 volume settings, with or without adding some heat to the water. Never left drops of water on nearby surfaces like my previous piece of junk. Only wish is that it might have a larger tank. On highest volume setting the tank lasted only about 13 hours.

    I bought 2 of these humidifiers (one as a gift) after a lot of research. I was frustrated because my previous humidifiers leaked and were bulky. This is a nice compact design that is easy to move from room to room even when full. Filling it is easy even in a regular bathroom sink. The fact that no filters were needed was an added plus. Time will tell how long it will last but so far I am impressed.

    The info says it will put out 50% hum. up to 300 sq ft. Its showing I'm getting 37% in my 220 sq ft rm. which is still to dry. I probably would give this 5 stars if it did what it says. So I guess I will return it and look for another one. I would recommend this to a friend if they have a very small rm. With that said, for review purposes I'm not going to recommend it. Its to bad they don't offer the next size up. Then maybe I would get the 50%.

    This is the best humidifier I’ve owned. The multiple settings and large tank are great. I use this in my bedroom and put it on the lowest setting and it usually lasts about 3 days before it needs to be filled. The night light is very bright, but it can be turned off. Highly recommend this for those who suffer from allergies.

    This unit is awesome. We bought this for my allergies and asthma when they acted up from moving to a new area. I have had this unit for only a week but its the best of the best! Really works great and the extension poles really help to distribute the mist around the room. No heavy or bulky at all. The night light is a great feature as well but if you don't want it on you can turn it off

    Love the fact this machine requires no expensive filters and is so easy to clean. Like the slim design because it allows me to put it on a small counter space in my bedroom. The upright design with the wand extension also helps to get the mist into the air instead of the furniture. Also doesn't leave white film on your walls and furniture.

    Very happy with look and ease of use. Water scale on the element is quickly removed with a tablespoon of plain vinegar during a five minute soak once a week or so (inexpensive and efficient). The antibacterial coating makes me feel confident in adding just moisture (not germs) to the air. Great product. Highly recommend!
