This is not my first humidifier, and it's not the only one I'm currently using. It is BY FAR my favorite. I love the shape of it, and the controls and display. I love the top-filling design and I don't know why they aren't all this easy to fill. The only not awesome thing I've noticed is that if it runs out of water when it's in sleep mode, the display comes on. I'm a sound sleeper but it bugs my husband. Honestly though, I'm struggling to resist the urge to just buy 2 more to replace my other (perfectly good but a pain to fill) humidifiers.
