Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I really like my new humidifier and I can tell its doing its job. I tried keeping it in my bedroom and run it at night but the light was way too bright with the lights off, almost blinding when I wake up and accidentally look at it. The empty tank light doesn't turn on, but I don't really mind that since I can easily see and hear when they are empty, I just hope the uv light blub indicator turns on when it needs replacement... The sound is kind of soothing, sounds like boiling water, but when you live outside of a big city with very little nighttime noise it can be a little too loud at bedtime. I bet in a city you wouldn't really notice it though. I have an 1100sq ft apartment and I can tell this one humidifier, set on high, is able to produce enough moisture to get everywhere. Overall I like it, but if they could reduce the sound somehow (maybe insulation of some kind) and dim the light significantly I would be completely satisfied (providing my uv bulb indicator light actually works).

I am a singer and need all the humidity I can get for my throat. Last week I purchased a lower model Vicks Warm Mist Humdifier for $30 and even less on sale. That product could not reach a level above 39-40% in a medium sized room with all doors shut. I was going to return it. I ended up purchasing this product thinking with the dual tank water capacity, adjustable control knob that I could get higher humidity levels. That was not the case. Used it one night and it could only reach the same levels as the much cheaper model. There are complaints out here about the blue light being too bright but it really is not unless a person needs absolute darkness to sleep. My thought just turn it to face the wall. Simple! Needless to say I am going to return this product and just get myself a second Vicks Warm Mist for $30 to hopefully achieve higher levels. For the price of this product it just isn't worth it. Save your money and by the lower model. It does the same job.

It does what it needs to do... puts humidity in the air. :-D I bought a humidity thermometer to test it, and it works just fine. Product automatically turns off when it runs out of water (which it does often if you set it to a level and leave it running). Product is supposed to turn off when the desired humidity is reached, but I have yet to see it do that. That could be because the product is whisper quiet. It could also be that the air in my house is super dry (apparently). :-P Supposively, it also has the ability to put vicks in the air for when your child has cold-like symptoms or troubles breathing. I haven't used this feature yet since the vicks wasn't included and my son has yet to be sick. There were coupons included to help with the purchase of separate vicks product (4 $1 off purchase of single product coupons). Overall, I think the humidifier will be better used in the winter season.

This humidifier works, but is hard to adjust, either steam or nothing depending on the setting. It has to be cleaned frequently due to my hard water. Uses a mineral pad per 2 weeks or less. I have not tried the auto shut-off, as I only run it when I am awake and present, and I monitor the water levels. The blue power light is annoyingly bright, but we have our backs to it as we sit in the living room, where it is placed, so it is not a major problem. It is fairly large, takes a lot of table space. It has greatly reduced the winter static in the whole house (1200 sq ft ranch). The cat had actual sparks flying off him as he zipped through the living room, now he doesn't! I only run it a few hours a day, and it uses a fair amount of water. But if I turn it down, it does nothing. But, it works for my purpose, which is to reduce static, and only run it in the evenings, and shut it off at night. I also like the UV feature and steam vs. cool mist.

Best humidifier on the market ! Much less expensive than a HVAC mounted humidifier. The Vick's v790 meets all of my needs & expectations ! I was able to decrease my house temp by 2°F while increasing my house humidity to 40%.

Does it interrup sleep? Some background white noise is normal but some humidifiers are very loud and clunkyl

  • A. You do hear it boiling and bubbling. It's not bad though. I actually find the sound "soothing", as if listening to water bubbling and rolling in a small creek. It may or may not bother you while sleeping. It's never affected my sleep when running and I hear everything when I'm asleep.

The "description" section said it does not use filters but a user "comment" said that is does have filters that must be replaced from time to time.
by CaptainSam 1/27/2012

  • A. This DOES come with filters, and you can use the filters (and have to buy more as they do need to be replaced). It also says that as long as you use distilled water, they are not really necessary. If you use the filters and use hard water, they will need to be replaced often.
    by KayMotherOfTwo11/17/2015
    Was this answer helpful? (2) (0)
    Was this answer helpful?
  • A. The filters that you are talking about is the absorbant pads for hard water conditions. If you have hard water, the heat from boiling will cause the calcium to create deposits that will harden like cement on the heating element area. The little pads fit into the water well of the heating element and they are designed to have the calcium to collect on the little pad, instead of the equipment. If you don't want to replace pads often, when they become crusty from the hard water, just soak the pad in vinegar for a day and it will disolve the calcium and then renew the pad to use again. If you don't have hard water, then you really won't need them, but they are available if you have small deposits on your unit. Either way, if you have any kind of calcium build up from the water and it's hard to get off, just fill the water wells with vinegar for a while and then you can just wipe and rinse the deposits out. Again, the filters are only if you have hard water, but the unit is not using filters for anything else.

  • A. It does have a small filter that you put in the boiling compartment but it comes with 2 of them. It's supposed to catch minerals from your water and the booklet says that you'll have to change it more frequently depending on how hard your water is.

  • A. It comes with 2 mineral filters that sits in center of unit. I didn't even know one was already in the unit until I cleaned it for the first time. I took it out and you don't have to use them. I don't use them & unit works great. Just pour white vinegar in the center & let it sit for 15-20 minutes to clean unit then rinse a few times with water to get all vinegar out. I've had many humidifiers and this is the easiest one I have ever had to clean. Heard if you want to use the pads they are around $8. Even if you use pads you still have to clean the unit. I used a filtered water for my water that might keep it cleaner than with tap water but I am not sure I would have to.

Does it fill from the top so you have only to pour water in it? Or is it one of those where you have to take the tank out, turn it upside down, fill it, turn it right side up, and then place back in the unit? I am looking for a unit that is easy to fill because I am handicapped.
