    Amazingly, I bought this Vicks humidifier for our newly adopted DOG. He came to us with a case of kennel cough and our vet suggested we put a humidifier in the room where he is sleeping to help him. I did some quick research and found this one at Best Buy. My local store had it in stock so I ordered online and picked it up an hour later. IT works just as advertised. Not fancy, well priced, well made. The picture is of our dog, Colin, now benefitting from this humidifier.

    A little noisy

    The description says it's close to silent, but I beg to differ. Now, it's not loud by any means, but the sound is definitely noticeable, even when other stuff is going on in the room. But other than that, I love this humidifier. It is the perfect size for an average size bedroom. Also, adding the little scented pod system at the bottom was a great addition!

    Does the job

    Humidifier is not a luxury item. So I'm happy if it does the job it is supposed to do. It works fine. I use it in the office when humidity drops below 30%. Overall happy with the purchase. Just one last note, it's a cold mist humidifier. So expect a cooler room temperature.

    Humidifier works well, but makes an unexpected dripping sound that I find annoying. The first few hours of use, I looked and looked for a leak, but it doesn't have one. Just seems to be part of its normal operation. But it does work well.

    The product fits all my requirements: Easy set up, functional, almost silent and affordable. Of all the available products in the market, this one is very competitive, mainly because it doesn't use heat.

    Our daughter kept getting bloody noses at night from the heat being on so our Dr recommended getting a cool mist humidifier and boy has it helped! She's not so stuffy in the am and no more bloody noses!

    This humidifier was great when my wife and I had the flu. The only drawback is that the store doesn't sell the replacement filters, but other than that this device is great.

    This humidifier was for my daughter’s room and it is small but puts out a lot of mist and is extremely quiet. I’ll be getting another one for the night stand in my room!

    It works decent and does exactly what it says it does. I just wished it would work better in bigger rooms. Overall great product for smaller rooms.

    This wasn’t purchased for me, but I understand that it works well, is easy to refill and clean. Makes it not so dry. Don’t even personally use the Vick’s inserts.

    It worked really well at first but then broke about six months later. Thankfully I bought the geek squad replacement though.

    This item works well. It's nice there is no filters to worry about. Just perfect for a small room and has automatic shut off when water is gone.

    Works well. Typically have to fill twice a day. Real test will be if it will work next winter after sitting idle for the summer.

    Absolutely recommend - had to buy this since we live in TX & air can be a little dry. Good for dry coughs/noses etc.
