    It seemed like a good deal, but was disappointed with the small tank, low level of mist, even when setting was ser to "high", confusing controls. I didn't even use it a complete week.

    At the medium (warm) setting a tank only lasts about 8 hours. Can be noisy when the fan is running. Looks good and easy to fill and clean though.

    Honestly this thing runs great. The only thing is that the tank runs dry too fast. Would want a bigger tank

    Humidifies for a Short Time period

    The water in the tanks lasts only for a few hours. However for that short period of time it does make a difference in the quality of the air in the house. It seems that there is little difference in the mist temperature and the setting adjustments makes no difference either.

    I like this humidifier so far, the steam function is great and the only one I've used so far. I've only had it for a month but I do like it a lot. My one gripe is that the tank will not last a full night at anything above a 40 or 45% setting. Maybe 5 or 6 hours.

    Brand need to listen customers. Never answered my suggestions. Can't turn light off. So bright at night. Water tank is not enough for a night long. Humidity sensor very poor, doesn't read and keep vaporizing non stop. got a beautiful design and a very easy water tank filling. Need improvement

    Tricky to use

    This humidifier is not for beginners. The bottom of the water reservoir is a little difficult to open/ close. The trick is to line up the notches and twist. Also placing the tank back on the base is a bit tedious. It has to be placed just right. Using the buttons is confusing. The colors of the different modes (purple and indigo in particular) are easy to get confused. Button response is slow, causing improper mode selection.

    Very impressed, but one terrible flaw

    I have had many of the cheap cool mist ultrasonic humidifiers over the years, they eventually break or get super gross after a few years. I decided to invest in something nice this time around and wanted something that didn't look as ugly, and this one does look nice. It is my first hot mist humidifier and it is so much more effective than the cool mist, I was amazed at how much quicker it could raise the humidity in the room. The oil diffuser is also nice, I put a few drops of peppermint oil in and the air has a nice menthol feel to help me breathe. Cleaning seems very easy. The lid of the tank is the entire width of the cylinder, this makes it really easy to fill and easy to wipe down, unlike most with a tiny opening. The one fatal flaw of the product is that there is no way to turn off the LED display, so it constantly shines a bright light at night. It says it has an ambient light sensor to adjust the brightness, but it doesn't seem to do anything. For a product that is so well designed otherwise, it is a massive oversight. Overall I would still recommend it though, unless you just have to sleep in complete darkness. Pros: -Elegant design -Easy to clean -Easy to fill -Adjustable humidity target -Adjustable steam temp -Very effective at being a humidifier -Essential oil diffuser Cons: -No way to turn off bright display, it is a night light -It can burn you on hottest setting, probably not good for kids (but why it is so effective @@@@@@@

    Hey there, this is Jason from the Kleeberg Family Blog. I'm from the old school, where there was never a desire to add or remove moisture to a room. The humidity in a room was what it was, and if you wanted more, you moved to Florida, if you wanted less, you moved to Arizona. I'd always seen these in stores and thought, "What's the point?" , but now we've a baby and when he got sick, the doctor recommended a humidifier for the room to help with his cough and congestion. We chose this unit because of the look and the features. In terms of look, it's sleek and modern. A lot of humidifiers are boxy and white - something you wouldn't want sitting on your shelf at home. I didn't want something I'd have to put away and take out every night. The Vornado looks great - it's a two tiered look, the right is for the water reservoir and the left is the control panel. It's a grey color so it looks good on a shelf. The lights are soft and one small light strip will glow purple, pink, or orange based on the temperature you have it set at. I know some people have complained about the lights flashing when it's out of water, but it didn't effect us that much. I never woke up because of it. As far as I can see, you cannot turn the display off, so if that's a dealbreaker for you, it might be something to look at. For me, it doesn't bug me. It's not as bright as some would have you believe. In terms of features, we've got three different temperatures of water, which I suppose is nice. It's got cool, warm, and hot mists. It's got a digital humidity read, so you can set the humidity percentage in the room. It also has a timer for the night. It's advertised at up to 36 hours on one tank (we've the one gallon tank version), but I'ven't seen anywhere near that - my guess is that you can get 36 hours on cool with the lowest humidity setting. On warm (at 50% humidity), we see about 8 hours or so. On cool, we get longer. Again, not a big deal. It's easy to refill the tank - lift, fill, and place back in. There are no filters needed, which is a huge plus. Personally, I see no need for humidifiers. I've gone my whole life without one, and now using one for a month, I can't tell a difference in sleep, health, etc. Some of you probably can though, and if you're one of those people who get a benefit out of these machines, I'd say this is a good one to get. It looks nice, seems well made, and does what it advertises. Check out the website for more pictures!
