Puts out a nice mist, great options for humidity levels/mist strength, responsive interface, and aesthetically pleasing. I am in the process of returning this item and exchanging it for the same one. I really like how this product works but the heat setting for warm mist isn't working. The troubleshooting instructions say to ensure the heating function be active for a sufficient amount of time, where the solution is to wait 1.5 hours and then check. No luck. After 1.5+ hours cool mist still comes out. I hope it doesn't take 1.5 hours each time to adequately heat up. I've felt a noticeable difference in the moisture air quality in my room (I can breathe better) and I hope the heat setting on my replacement will work. Will update when I receive the replacement. I would say the sound is equal to the intensity of a central heater - minimal but aware it's there.
EDIT: I am returning both humidifiers as the warm setting doesn't actually come out warm to the touch- it is just less cool than the cool mist. Other than this, I would recommend this product to those who are looking for a mid-cool and cool mist humidifier as it works fabulously and feels well built. I reached out to customer service and they provided me an explanation that this humidifier is only 40W, and its warm mist can only raise the temperature of cold water by 3-5 degrees. Apparently, the difference is that the warm mist function has 50-100l /H more humidification than the cold mist. Customer service was wonderful as they responded promptly and courteously. I am disappinted as the title of the humidifier is misleading.
