Holmes® Warm Mist Humidifier
HOLMES IS DESPICABLE!!!!!!!!!
Bought this product and within 2 months it broke. One night it just started leaking out all over the place, scalding hot water ran down the dresser and all over the carpet. It completely ruined the dresser warping the entire thing and taking the paint off. We sent it to the manufacture and they will NOT cover the dresser repairs, and its taking 7 months to get any answers on it. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!!!!!! Not only will it not work, but you will get totally screwed if you try to claim anything under the warranty. Their response was "Don't leave it unattended, its not meant to be placed on wood, carpet, bookshelves, dressers, tables or nightstands" Let me ask you, where CAN it go!?!?!?! Read the fine print before buying this or you'll be in the same position I am and now I have no dresser or humidifier. HOLMES IS DESPICABLE!!!!!!!!!

The produce was lacking.
The product leaked. I followed ll instructions before using and the product produce an unpleasant odor while in use.

Good for the value
This product gets the job done. However, it's a little loud on the high setting (although I'm a light sleeper), and it gets the floor warm so it's best to set a towel on the floor while running.

Don't expect to sleep if this is anywhere near your bed. Terrible, loud and ineffective. Cheap and not worth even that.

Not only do you have to wait 15 minutes for the reset light to turn off, but get the right humidifier and the reset light won't ever turn off! What a pleasant surprise! Got this terrible item home after driving half an hour on a special trip to get a humidifier, it worked fine as a display so I thought hey, good deal. NO. Not only am I out the gas money it took to buy this utterly useless item, but now I have to make yet another trip to return it. I really wish I would have read the reviews but I stupidly assumed that since the model on display was working, that this one would too (I know, what was I thinking?) Please, do yourself a favor and ignore the good reviews on this product...they are obviously (by the number of bad reviews) flukes. Awful.Frustrating.Poor design, on and on and on. I wasn't even expecting a lot, and I was still let down.

I bought this 2 months ago. At first it worked alright but after some use, it was making too much noise on the high setting. We were unable to get good sleep as it's inconsistent loud noise was keep waking us up.

No problems with mine
I can't believe all the negative reviews on this. My husband and I love ours. It's over five years old and works great. We don't hear a thing and no, we're not deaf. Ours is super quiet and puts out over two gallons of water a day. We do hear the occasional bloop bloop bloop as the water goes down. No issues with it over heating. You can see the steam rise as it puts out moisture. Very low maintenance. No filters to change. All you who hate(d) yours, are you sure this is the model (HM5082) you got? The cool mist ones are the ones that are loud.

Loud and Junky
I wish I had read the reviews before I bought this. It sounds like it is perking coffee. The base does get hot and it takes a while to get going. I am so unhappy that I am bringing this piece of LOUD junk back. Guess you do get what you pay for. I picked this because the store was quite empty in this department. SO UNHAPPY. DO not purchase this or you will need to buy a sound machine just not to hear this one!
