OK, I have said enough about a $40 humidifier.
But here is a nice review.
Also on those units that have broken down, I simply chalk that up to that no manufactured product has a perfect record. Fact is, some will fail. That’s why there’s warranties.
I like to use Toyota as an example. I have had a few 4Runners and as far as I’m concerned, Toyota makes some of the best vehicles in the world.
But search the Net and you can find people who had lemon Toyotas and/or who say Toyota makes the worst cars on the planet.
So unless a company is known for making lousy products across the board, I assume that things like this humidifier will work and last fine.
Here’s the review:
- After much research on Amazon to find the perfect humidifier to deal with these dry Colorado winters, I still found myself undecided and exasperated.
The repeated complaints about leaky units and poor performance across so many of the units is really what fueled my doubt. It seemed that the ratio of good reviews to bad ones was higher than most other products that I research on here.
Anyway, I happened to come across this unit at my local warehouse club at a good price and I decided on a whim to buy it. Not sure exactly why, but it probably had to do with the frustration described above. One was in front of me that had the features I wanted, so I went for it!
And am I glad that I did. I have been thoroughly impressed by this unit after about 8 months of regular use. The tank size is great, on the medium setting where I normally leave it at, I have enough water to last for 3-4 days. That is if I am feeling too lazy to change it which does happen sometimes.
I sometimes use filtered water and other times tap water and I have not noticed a difference in the steam produced.
Speaking of tap water, the heating element of this unit collects much less mineral deposits than my old AirOSwiss unit did. I find that odd for some reason.
The water where I live is pretty hard and yet I see a noticeable difference in the frequency of cleanings. This was an unexpected benefit but I will take it!
Thankfully, the kaleidoscope of bright colors on the LED is dimmable with the push of a button. I like having the clock feature and I find myself looking at my humidifier for the time more than my alarm clock.
Also, the adjustable control over the steam is a nice feature that works well. I see a very noticeable difference between the different modes.
I suppose that the warm steam feature is the only one I don’t think works well. The steam feels like virtually the same temperature as the cold steam unless you hold your hand right in front of it.
Overall, I’m very happy with the durability and performance of this little work house. I would definitely buy it again and strongly recommend that you do the same!! *
