The unit is really nice looking. I thought the remote was cool, though it took a while for me to get used to the different combinations of buttons you have to press to get the settings just right each time you run the machine. I did not like that the buttons come with a loud beep with each press, so if I want to change settings during the night, I risk waking the hubby. I really liked the multi-directional mist option, that was a smart idea. Even though I returned mine (I felt like the warm setting could have been warmer), I would recommend this unit.
