Tank is easy to fill. Really low maintenance. I've never had a problem with any odors, but i live in a very dry climate (not too many mildew problems). I usually just crank up the settings all the way so I don't care if it's automatic or not, but I do like having the option of lower settings. I personally LOVE the white noise it makes... it covers up the night sounds of a VERY noisy suburban neighborhood (barking dogs, cats in heat, police helicopters circling, constant sirens from a nearby hospital, kids hotrodding, you get the idea). Had to buy it in a hurry at the local drugstore during an illness, and paid 15 bucks more for it. Wish I could have bought it here on sale!

Okay, not great

The humidifer is noisy, and you have to adjust the mist periodically--it is not automatic.

    I realized I needed another humidifer in my home except just in the bedroom. I got this bargain for the living room . I have found it effective.

    We've owned this model for 3 years and use it mostly in our bedroom. It has worked very well and we like it because it does not need a filter. We clean it thoroughly at the end of each winter season. It is not hard to clean contrary to what others have said. (The bottom comes loose from the 2 top sections and everything is very accessible to clean.) It is a bit noisy at high speed, but we don't find it objectionable. The lights on the controls are useful if you want to adjust settings in the dark. We would recommend it. We think it has helped us to keep the cold season under control.

    Lights too bright

    Comments about Vicks FilterFree Cool Mist Humidifier, 1 ea:

    the operating lights were far too bright for me. High setting is too
    loud and glugging noise it made through the night woke me a lot
    I liked sticking my face right above the vent, it felt great and could
    see that it would be helpful but bought it for my college student
    and she would be too frustrated with the cleaning and up keep and the lights too. We are not all 5 years old and need an additional night
    light that want to use these kind of product. I'm returning it today, bummer.

      Impossible to clean! The humidifier does not come apart and there are cavities in the machine where mold forms but cannot be cleaned. Find another model. I cannot believe this was put on the market.

        Bought the product to use in my office during the dry winter months. Would not buy it for my home, as it is VERY noisy (unless you need "white noise").

              So far so good! I bought this for my 18 month old son who gets really bad coughs with his colds...and I really didn't want a high-maintenance humidifier (filters, cleaning, etc). All you do is add water and turn it on - it comes with a "Protec" water ball thingy that kills any kind of bacteria in the water, so you don't have to really "clean" it for a whole month! I just rinse it out and add more water each day. Very easy to use. It is a bit loud, but I have found that a lot of models are loud - this is just the easiest to use. Great that it has a humidistat too - so when it gets to your desired level of humidity it stops automatically, and then re-starts when needed.

              This humidifier is impossible to clean. It also had a terrible odor even when it was new and still clean.

                No instructions - so, so loud. I use it in my bedroom - the cheap one that I bought last year was much more quiet. I do like the fact that it has no filter to clean. Don't waste your money on this product. Its too loud :(
