Rated 3 out of 5 by Gale from When it stops working, try this: The humidifier worked perfectly for the first couple of weeks. The only feature that would make it better is if it had a directional spout to direct the mist further into the room. After not using it for a while, it would no longer output mist despite the tank being full and the mist level turned all the way up. Looking in the base, there was some gunk on the metal disk you can see inside. Here's how to fix it: empty the base and pour a little vinegar onto the metal disk, then clean it with a toothbrush. Refill the tank and plug in. It worked like new after this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by hohum user from ok product Pros: 1. Sleek desk for desktop 2. Able to raise humidity by 10%, which is 10z better than the sunbeam impeller model 3. Has large tank that only needs filling once a day Cons: 1. Does not have top opening to fill tank, so have to take tank to sink 2. Tank excessively big and all sides are curved, so you have to try to hold the filled tank with one hand/arm while trying to turn off the tap with the other 3. Bottom cap is not tight. It fell off while i was putting tank into base and water was everywhere. 4. Spout that mist passes through is a great breeding ground for fungi/bacterial because it cannot be cleaned

Rated 3 out of 5 by Raymondloewy2 from Cool mist ultrasonic humidifier. We have had this unit for a couple of months and it generates plenty of mist. The only complaint is that the reservoir tank does not have a flat surface to rest on so when you fill the tank you have to hold the tank while it fills and then support it by one hand when putting the cap on. The reservoir is also to tall to be filled from a regular bathroom sink so either fill it from the bathtub or carry it to the kitchen sink and fill it there. But without a flat side to rest on it is inconvenient at best. A simple rectangular top filling tank would have been more useful than the sleek stylish look it was designed for.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Khvyn from Worked great until it broke. Cannot get parts. Worked great for a winter, then the valve in the water tank broke. The valve keeps the water in while you transport it to the machine. The problem is I cannot get a replacement valve. And for $100 after taxes (when I bought it) you can bet I'm not very happy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by lmb13 from Worse than the old one Bought this a year and a half ago and it worked intermittently for about 6 months. Cleaned it and it won't give me anything... the mist was never great from it. Tank was awkward to fill. Cap on the bottom was difficult to close properly. Had more then one "fake close" cap mishap. Useless instruction manual. Doesn't even show a description of the parts in the base which you are supposed to clean. Great, thanks Sunbeam. Wish I had kept my parents from 1970 which was big and noisier but worked much better and with more features. So much for "upgrading"..

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jenc from Dont spend the money!!! I had this bought for me for Christmas although its the life brand version by sunbeam. Exact same model. It worked off and on for the last mth.but it always took playing with to get the mist to start. I would have to clean it...fill it..then turn the knob off and on slowly or quickly... Never sure what actually got it to finally work. Very frustrating! The unit is new and never worked properly. Now...it wont start a mist at all. Very disapointing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kandaon from Silent and efficient The omly noise you hear is the fan, which is pretty discrete (you need to be right next to it to hear anything). At maximum output, the mist is enough for a small appartment - and the kids love "our own personal cloud, indoors". Capacity: it runs almost a day with a full charge, so you definitely don't have to worry about refilling. No air filtering, but that's ok, with me, 'cause I don't want the strong air currents associated with that. No fan control, but it seems to be tuned well for the role it plays - no complaint there!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jean Lefebvre from It is not whisper quiet as you mention. When I had in mind to purchase a humidifier at the store the salesman told me that it was very a very quiet model which I was looking for. But when I tried it well it was not. I had in mind to return to you seeing I had purchased it On line through your site. But the fees involved to return it were too high.
