The best thing I like that this over my other humidifiers is that this is a top-fill model. I don't even have to stop it to add water. The top cover easily comes off to add more water to the tank.
It comes with a remote, but I haven't used it. I just set the output and humidity levels and let it run. It has 3 output levels. I leave it at high.
It has a heating setting, but I use it cold. I also don't use the timer or sleep options. I have it on a table or counter so I don't have to use the child lock for my 8 month old either.
Overall, I'm pleased with the humidifier, even though I don't use all of its bells and whistles. Easy to add water and set & forget settings.
