I have tried various humidifiers over the past several years and have always been disappointed. After reading several upbeat reveiws about the Vornado I decided to give it a try. One of the features I was most hoping for was the ability to set/maintain a constant humidity level. The Vornado claimed the ability to adjust humidity between 40%-60% range.

Unfortunately, this is not the case. When I first turned on the unit it reported a room humidity of 65%, 5% above the range that can be set. There are 2 accurate hygrometers in the room that read 41%. I contacted Vornado and was told that the unit's humidity readings can/may/might be off by as much as 50%. This factor of error makes the "set desired humidity" function nearly useless.

I will note, that other than the set humidity function, the unit does perform very well. I can manually maintain my desired level of humidity during the day with no problems. The nights are a different story as I must set the unit to low and hope for the best.

Overall, the Vornado is a good unit. But if you are hoping for the option to set a desired humidity level and have the unit cycle on/off to maintain that level, you will be disappointed.

quiet with solid controls and reasonable water storage that is easy to fill. Expect 4 solid months of performance w no white mist. Two internal values can falter leaving the entire tank of water on your floor. One value of the tank and one on the intake. Tried everything and now am shopping for a different unit.

Good unit with some serious flaws

Pros

    Cons

    • Tank Is Awkward To Handle

    Best Uses

      Comments about Vornado Whole Room Ultrasonic Humidifier:

      Three stars instead of 5 because:

      1. Tank must be balanced on the rounded top when refilling. Why not change the design to a flat surface for solid rest?

      2. The on-board humidity display does not seem accurate. It does not show changes in humidity which are very apparent subjectively. I have ordered a hygrometer to monitor the room humidity more reliably.

      3. The display screen leaks--condenses moisture accumulation inside and makes the display extremely difficult to read.

      Pretty Disappointed

      By Pat

      from USA

      Comments about Vornado Whole Room Ultrasonic Humidifier:

      I purchased this unit for my mother to moisten the air in her 3rd floor apartment. Everything worked great for the first 2 weeks until my mother called and said all her furniture was turning white. I purchased a new cartridge for $27.50 and 2 weeks later the same thing happened. I've been told to use distilled water but this is too expensive and a big hassle to carry gallons of water into her apartment. Needless to say I'm out of luck. The unit is out of warranty and is no longer in use.

      Great product, the water vessel needs to have a handle. Something to hold while filling it up.

      Finally a Humidifier That Works

      By Misti Ramey

      Comments about Vornado Whole Room Ultrasonic Humidifier:

      Dealing with CO's dry climate I am so happy I found this humidifier. Between the reviews and the fact that Vornado has been around for so long I gave it a shot. It works great!! It's quiet and the output is really good. I followed a tip one of the previous reviewers gave and used distilled h2o and magically no white dust. I had a Air O Swiss that died 3 months in, after 2 months of dealing with their "customer service" the replacement didn't even last that long. This one works so much better.

      Comments about Vornado Whole Room Ultrasonic Humidifier:

      I run a digital prepress department with 3 Epson 7900 proofers running all day. The Vornado has helped tremendously this winter in maintaining a consistent humidity level as well as keeping static down to a minimum.
