My husband bought this humidifier for me after seeing it on QVC. I've had it now for four days and so far I'm very happy with the product. This is light and super easy to set up. If you fill it all the way to 20 ounces it will run for 9 hours which means all night for us! You can also set it up for intervals for your office or anywhere you want to and it should improve the quality of your air. It is meant for a room, not for a whole house but I have actually moved it with me from kitchen to day to the bedroom at night.The instructions recommend you to use distilled or bottled water but I have waterfilter in my tab so I just fill it straight from there. This product is very silent and the mist is cool, big difference for the old clumsy humidifiers with filters I've seen before!You get a little bottle of eucalyptus drops with it, I had a hard time getting the drops out of the bottle without unscrewing the dropper. They tell you to use 2-5 drops but frankly I don't think that was enough when we were all stuffy with cold. I'd had it running in my bedroom close to my youngest child's bed and I can state for a fact that it has not hurt him any! He seemed to get over his cold unusually fast, I don't know if it was because of the mist at night or not but I do believe it was a factor.The fact that this stays cool to the touch is important for me with 5 children running around the house, they really cannot get hurt by this humidifier!. You can also move the direction of the mist around to suit your needs.I learned that if you move it when it is full and end up getting too much water on the bottom it will not work. This is why the instructions tell you not to move it whi le it is full. It is easy to fix, you just remove the water container and wipe off the water on the bottom and then it should work fine again.I wish the cord would be little longer, I had to rearrange my sidetable next to my chair in the livingroom to reach the socket. It would be nice to be able to shut off the blue timer screen while operating if you wanted, but maybe it is safer to have it on?The blue light on the dome is very pretty and makes a wonderful night ligt. It creates shapes to my ceiling and I really like that feature and so do my children. You can shot the light on and off very easily by a touch of a button.You can use different scented drops on the water if wanted and I will find out more about that, I'm hoping to be able to add a hint of vanillin on the water! The instructions warn you about the liquids that might brake the machine, so I need to experiment more.As of now I'm thinking about getting a second unit and place it next to my plants in the living room, they seem to droop a little in the winter months and I'm sure that little mist would be a nice booster for them too!
