Editors' Choice Award
Powerful, fully featured, and easy to use and clean, great for large rooms and those that want precise and consistent humidity levels
Best Buy Award
A great budget option if you don't need advanced features and want to humidify a smaller room
Great if you have a larger bedroom and want something with extra features like self regulation
Quite effective and powerful for its price, but don't forget you'll have to pay for replacement filters for the life of the machine
If you don't mind vigorous cleaning and have hard floors, a good low-priced high-power option
A nice budget option for standard to large sized bedrooms
Good if your bedroom is slightly larger than average and you don't mind using some elbow grease when cleaning time rolls around
Adequate for small rooms, but there are better low cost/small room models available
Multiple other models offer similar or superior performance for much less, both upfront and in the long run
Attempts to be a great budget model, but other offerings perform significantly better in that regard
While good, this is not the best model around, yet costs 5 times as much as other top performers
The cleaning difficulties alone are off putting, and it doesn't offer any redeeming qualities
