I’ve been running this humidifier in my son’s room the last few night since he’s had a cold. This is quiet enough that it doesn’t disturb him and seems to be well made and sturdy. We haven’t had any leaks and it runs for quite a while before it runs out of water. I’ve definitely noticed less coughing and that he seems to be breathing easier since we started to use this. You can tell the room is less dry and stuffy with it on. One downfall is that the filter gets dirty easily. I received this item free for review purposes.
