My 3 year old came down with a cold and cough. He also has eczema and for days had a difficult time sleeping due to his cough and irritated skin. We purchased this humidifier soon thereafter he was sleeping soundly through the night. Along with the humidity, the VaporPads provided may have helped soothe his cough/cold. The moisture definitely made a difference with the dry winter air. He use to wake up in the middle of the night scratching but he is no longer doing that. Its comforting to know the antimicrobial cartridge helps keep the unit clean. Its an additional cost for the VaporPads and catridge but not mandatory. The large tank allows for a full day of use. The different settings make the unit versatile for days when its really dry or normal. The humidifier is not quiet but it never claims to be like other humidifiers. My son can sleep through anything so the humming produced is not an issue. It also has an LED that may bother those sensitive to light when sleeping. I place it on the floor so the LED doesn't bother my son. It acts like a night light.
Pros: Meets expectations, rich in features
Cons: humming sound. not a quiet machine., led at head level may be bright
Yes, I recommend this product.

Slightly quieter than a C15 CAT Diesel engine.

I bought this because I hate changing filters. Used it last winter and immediately noticed how loud this device was. I bought it for my bedroom...a place that is suppose to be quiet and tranquil. Well, not with this thing running! I could have spent my $75 on a quieter $20 humidifier and enough filters to last me 2 years for that price. Don't waste your money on this machine.
Also it has a light on the front of the machine that is brighter than the face of the sun...which mitigates the $400 in black out shades I have to keep light out of my room!
Pros: no filter
Cons: loud, bright light, too expensive
No, I do not recommend this product.
