Comments about PureGuardian Pure Guardian 90-Hour Smart Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier - H7550:
Easy to fill and good capacity that lasts us two nights between refills. Just the right amount of cool steam for our needs. It ended my (huge) problem with having to breathe through my mouth at night, which used to wake me up at regular intervals. (I don't like using nasal sprays)We also notice that our skin isn't so dry anymore. What definitely NEEDS to be improved (but is certainly not a deal-breaker)is that the big light is totally unnecessary, but the touch controls definitely NEED to be lighted or, at the very least, marked with dark symbols that a person can read. In the right light in the daytime, they can be seen, but not easily. At night, we have to use a small flashlight to see them. This is ridiculous! Also, since there is no way to set the controls and then eliminate the lighting in the display window, I had to make a 'curtain' of black electrical tape that I put over the display at night. Recent studies have proven that even a small, dim light in the bedroom can disturb sleep, and the display is BRIGHT, not dim. As for the LARGE BRIGHT light that comes on when you turn the unit on, it can be turned off via the settings button, but neither of us can figure out why it is even there. If an 'on' light is deemed necessary, then it could be like most 'on' lights - a 1/4" in diameter light. We don't need one that is 2" wide!!! Then is going to be turned OFF! Yet, you can't see the buttons for setting the unit the way you want! Really??? WHO thought this up? Now to a major PLUS: We have never heard the unit operate. It is not just 'quiet,' but is silent. Great feature. Outside of the lighting issues, the unit is very attractively designed and has a small footprint while doing a big job. We have NO issues such as some reviewers have mentioned about a fine, white residue. Our's is placed on a 20" high small stand, and the mist actually blows onto an artificial floral arrangement which extends over it from a window shelf. There is no indication whatsoever that this occurs, as the arrangement and the wall just inches from the humidifier have NO residue nor dampness. As for delivery, it was fast. No complaints there. Overall, we love it, and would purchase it again, if necessary. But, we hope that the company actually reads these reviews, because fixing the lighting problem - especially being able to read the controls - would make it near perfect in our estimation. Do away with the big 'on' light, light the controls, and then make it possible to shut them off after setting the unit the way you want at night.
