Pros Powerful, inexpensivePowerful, accurate humidistat prevents over-humidification, convenient remote control, easy to cleanInexpensive, easy to clean, easy to useEasy to clean, self-regulating evaporative humidifyingRelatively easy to clean, low operating cost, often sells below list price
Cons Hard to clean, cannot be used on carpetSomewhat on the expensive sideNot the most powerful, no advanced featuresRequires replacement filters, filter can get moldy if left unattended for too longTall tank may not fit in some sinks, humidifying power only about average
Bottom Line If you don't mind vigorous cleaning this is a good low-priced high-power optionPowerful, fully featured, and easy to use and clean, great for large rooms and those that want precise and consistent humidity levelsA great budget option if you don’t need advanced features and want to humidify a smaller roomQuite effective and powerful for its price, but don’t forget you’ll have to pay for replacement filters for the life of the machineA good choice if you're looking for a larger tank capacity on the cheap, but not an elite performer
