V23345 - Medisana Ultrasonic Personal Humidifier with Timer
DO NOT BUY THIS HUMIDIFIER
I am extremely disappointed with this Medisana humidifier. After 6 months it died. Medisana replaced it as it was still under warranty. Within 3 months the replacement humidifier started to make a loud grinding sound and then died. This is a horrible product.
I purchased two of them several months ago. The first one worked great at first. I used them for my husband who has Parkinsonism and often is congested. I used the eucalyptus and it worked really well. After several months, the first one just died. There were not lights and not steam at all. The same thing happened to the second humidifier. I bought this from QVC because I have never had a problem with any of their products and I liked this one because of it's small size. This product was very disappointing.
simply the best
I have had mine since Nov 2006 and it still works like a champ. I have had it stop on me when the dispenser where the steam comes out has too much water in it(usually from the tank emptying to fast) but it helps me sleep better and moisturizes my sinuses all night. I do wish it had a dimmer the light is a little bright, but I just turn it aroung and point the steam spout in my direction.
short term life to this product
I bought my unit in November and used it all winter. Loved the quiet, until it started making a noise, but not too loud. But now it doesn't work at all. I am really disappointed. I guess quality 'Q' isn't what it used to be.
Waste of Money
This never worked great from the beginning but the price and size where good so I kept it. Big mistake. First problem, not much comes out of it even on high setting. Second problem is the blue led display in the front, it is way too bright when you are trying to sleep. Had to make a cover for the front to block the blue led display. Now the big problem, I have had it for 2 months and it stopped working. It won't even turn on now. I should have read the reviews first before buying and when I wasn't 100% satisied in the beginning I should have sent it back. I can't return it now because it is past the 30 days so I have to throw it out. Total waste of money!!! Beware.
I ordered this in December, put it on my headboard, & have used it every night since. I add the eucalyptus oil to the water sometimes for a little scent. I think it is just perfect as a personal humidifier. I have had a few times when it makes a noise & doesn't want to work properly. In the begining, I found that if I stopped it before the tank was empty & filled it again, that was when the steam didn't want to flow. I just tap the top where the steam comes out & also blow into it & it starts working again, this doesn't happen very often though. I just fill it when the tank is empty & has stopped on its own. I use another somewhat larger humidifier that is across the room.
Great product for the price!
I've had this humidifier for about 5 mos. I initially purchased it for my son who has bronchial problems. I have been the one who has had to use it, first I developed a sinus infection, then the flu, then another sinus infection, and finally bronchitis!! What a winter I had!! This small humidifier came in handy with each of my illnesses. I put it on my nightstand next to me and it kept me breathing easier than I thought possible. I agree that the reservoir does fill up, but if you take a paper towel or a wash cloth and dip the end in the reservoir it will soak up the water and it runs smoothly.
I would have given this product 5 stars if not for this problem. All that I can say is that you get what you pay for, don't expect a inexpensive product to work as well as a pricey one! It is also important to clean it after each use for optimal performance!! And after my winter of illnesses I say that I got my money's worth, and by the way, mines is still going strong!!
Don't by this Humidifier
The timer is worthless and does not work properly. The unit does not have an "on" feature and requires some magic to plug and unplug so it can (but doesn't) reset itself.
Perfect for Travel
Being from Hawaii and used to humidity, most hotel room's heat and a/c totally dry out my skin and nasal/throat membranes. Have had many, many travel humidifers logging many miles of travel and years of use. This one is the BEST! Compact, easy to pack (keep in box for TSA inspections), one fill lasts 8 hrs so I don't awake all dried out. It's over a year old and I keep it running all night long
Have recommended to many in my ski tour group--price is great too!
This product is not only quiet but really works with cool moisture. You can program this product so it doesn't run all day (1 hour on 2 hours off etc.) - It cleans up easy and the night light is cozy for an evening night light. It is so portable and easy to take it from room to room. Friends come over and they are really impressed by this lighted misting product. I am really glad this product was available as my personal humitifier.
Not worth it
I thought this was the best. I needed just a little humidifier for kids bedrooms. Bought 3- 2 stopped working (don't put out any mist, water just bubbles) within the 30 days, so returned. The third one lasted about 4 months.
NOT worth it
This was a gift from my husband. Loved this humidifier at first; used it at work. But stopped working after 2 months -- seems like the water got into the electronics. Wished we'd looked at the reviews before purchasing -- a real DUD.
