Customer Reviews

Nice look, a little loud but not as loud as the one I replaced. The water dispenser has a nice handle and makes emptying it easy. The readout is nice and easy to operate. Would recommend this product.
This unit keep my room at 50% humidity where is about 70% out side, so it was good for me.


This unit replaced a Frigidaire, which in turn replaced a Frigidaire before it. I use it in a not-well-ventilated bathroom, in a home on the humid Gulf coast, which means it runs nearly continuously from March to November. The previous units each lasted about 3 years, which I think is pretty good considering the conditions. As a previous reviewer noted, "this unit sucks water from the air by the gallons," and I am very happy with its operation so far. The air filter is a new feature, one that I hope enables this unit to be as long-lasting (or more) as its predecessors. At the time I was shopping, this was one of very few 70-pint units even available, and the price point was in line with my recollection from my previous units.

Customer Reviews

This Humidifier gets the job done. It has a low, high, and off setting on the dial. It also says "reset" but you can't actually turn to it so that's a little confusing. Also- there is no directions for the automatic turn off.... I debate if that even really works. Cleaning and filling is easy and pretty mess free. Overall great product, especially for the price!


It is my first time... using a warm mist humidifier

This is very good

but... mist is not strong

maybe this product's target is a patient.. such as asthma ... like that...

but also this can use everyone

This is a terrific little air purifier. I have asthma, suffer from chronic broncitis and my husaband also has chronic sinus problems. This Honeywell compact air purifier has really made a difference each night in our master bedroom. We love the subtle white noise and have really noticed a difference in the morning. No coughing, less congestion. Did I mention that I have a cat sleeping on my pillow with me? I am amazed how much better my breathing has been since we started using this air purifier. Our dog has even stopped sneezing too. (I think he's allergic to the cat.) Highly recommend this product. Great value. Easy to clean the filter.

Excellent Purifier! True to its description, with the exception of it says that it's quiet. It's not overwhelmingly loud, however, it is definitely not quiet either; nevertheless, it's doing a great job. I've had it for approximately 8-9 months, and it's still working magnificently; love the portability, and you can't go wrong with the permanent filter.

Sunpentown SU-4010 Ultrasonic Dual Mist Humidifier with ION Exchange Filter SPT

SU-4010 Size: 13.2W x 5.3D x 12.4H inches

In San Diego, it can get very dry either warm and cool conditions at the same place that make us looking for a humidifier for our bedroom. And then we have got this one in January 2010 after too many choices of product comparisons. So far it's been used for over a year on practically a daily basis. So my wife and I feel that the air is more pleasant to sleep and our cats certainly agree. I set it to keep the humidity between 50 - 60% that seems to be good for us. I have an electronic temperature and humidity indicator that I check when making adjustments and use that to get an idea whether to increase or decrease the setting.

Here are some reasons that might be make decision easier to get Sunpentown SU-4010 Ultrasonic Dual Mist Humidifier :

- It is ultrasonic to make a vaporizer humidifier , so no need to changing filters and the amount of mist can be varied. It can work through a tank in 12 hours or several days, depends on the setting, the weather and the size of the room that you place it in.
- Easy to refill the tank.
- Besides a very low hum, the unit does make an occasional gurgling sound, which you will get used to in a few days. I don't even notice it anymore.
- The warm mist is not exactly hot but it is warmer than the room air, so that's nice.
- Don't worry about leaving it on, it will stop itself when a red light show up. Very informative.
- Based on the visual level of the water and the setting, you will have a rough idea of how long the unit will take to run out of water.
- We use filtered water, which still has some minerals in it (we live in San Diego - hard water capital of the world), and even though all water goes through the filter, some white deposits do accumulate on the underside of the tank. You might want to clean this stuff off (mostly it comes off pretty easily) every few months. In any case, it's on the underside of the filling unit, you only see it when you turn the tank upside down to fill it.
Altogether, we are 100% satisfied with this unit. If it broke down, we'd buy another in a heartbeat.

Crane Drop Shape Cool Mist Humidifier

Posted in

I purchased the Crane cool mist humidifier in December 10 and it works great for many months. I've read some of the negative reviews which I almost didn't purchase this machine but I'm glad I did, because it works really well for a mid size/capacity humidifier.

First of all, This humidifier has used a 2.3 gallon per day maximum output with a 0.9 gallon tank. Amazon's initial title for this mentions daily output capacity rather than tank size. This may be confusing, although the correct specs are prominently listed on the Amazon page - fifth bullet point in the "product features" section. The reviewers
complaining about the "misleading name" should try emailing Amazon suggesting a title change on their website... instead of writing a 1 or 2 star review of the product. That would be more helpful and more fair.

As for the product itself:

A few buyers obviously received defective machines; this has to be expected on some level with any manufacturer.

But having read over the negative reviews, I realized that most of the complaints were due to improper use of the machine.
It is essential to read the instruction manual and use the machine as intended by design. Doing so will avoid the pitfalls described by most of these 1-2 star review writers. For reference, I have addressed their most common complaints below:

1) White dust buildup in the room: use filtered or distilled water. This is important if you have hard tap water. (85% of American homes do.) I run my tap water through a Brita filter; the exchange ion resin lowers the concentration of calcium carbonates, accordingly softening tap water. It also helps keep the humidifier cleaner by removing organic impurities, and I have had no white dust buildup.
***If your water is particularly high in mineral content, you should use distilled water, or else opt for a vaporizer-type (humidifying) machine, which creates water vapor free of white dust.***

2) Limited effectiveness: you are trying to humidify too large a room. In my

Four Types of Ionization Air Purifiers

Four Types of Ionization Air Purifiers
Normally, people are unaware that there are four differences of ionic air purifiers in use nowadays. Ionizers in general have been around for many years.

Definition of an ion: an atom or molecule, electrically charged, which has lost or gained one or more electrons, making it either positively or negatively charged.

A simplified explanation of the process. The ionic purifier produces an ions then ions collide with and attach themselves to particles in the air (opposite charges attracted). The particles attach themselves to other particles, collection devices or filters or solid surfaces and removed from the air. The exact process depends on the type of ionic air purifier used.

Ionization is produced and present around you in the air we breathe outside. Ions are measured by how many present in a cubic centimeter. "Typical" clean air outside contains 3,000 positive+ and 4000 negative - ions per cm3. This amount can be influenced by a myriad of factors and is constantly changing and constantly replenished by sun, wind and storms.

By the research that the natural balance of ions outdoors is generally better than most of our indoor environments.

Have you ever felt like getting outside to get a breath of fresh air? Interestingly enough, some scientists point to +/- ions as part of the reason for outside air "feeling right". Unfortunately indoor air generally presents a problem for ions. In most cases the number of ions present is much less compared to outside air.

Sometimes there are too many positive ions and an imbalance occurs in house. Generally the imbalance leans towards the positive but another problem could occur if too many negative ions are present. A balance is the best just like outside.

Ok, great you say, now what about cleaning the air with air purifiers....

These are Four Basic Ionic Air Purifier Technologies:

1. Electrostatic precipitators and charged media filters: mainly passive technologies; most of the ionization occurs inside the air purifier. As air enters the purifier, an electronic charge is
