We purchased this humidifier for the first floor (~1400 sq ft) of our house. Overall, the performance is very good. It works very well, easily keeping the first floor between 45 and 50% humidity. The filter seems to last for about 1 month, but we've got pretty hard water, and we're not using the decalcifier, so your mileage may vary. The reason for the average rating is because of the design and construction. There are two tanks, each holding about 3 gallons. The tanks are filled from the bottom, but the tops of the tanks are rounded, which means they can't be set down for filling. This means you either need to hold the tank against yourself with one arm (keep in mind that the handle is now on the bottom) while you fill with the other, or recruit a second person. The whole unit, including the tanks, is made with thin plastic (polycarbonate), which is a bit flimsy, especially considering you'll be lugging 25 pounds of water around in each one on a daily basis. A more durable polypropylene tank with a flat top would have been much easier to use. Overall, it does what we ask it to do, and for the price, I probably shouldn't complain too much. My 2 cents.
