Expert Review. I own this unit as well. I bought it because I wanted an inexpensive unit for occasional winter use. I agree with users saying it works well and is quiet to operate. The top handle works well for carrying the tank after filling.I also agree that the blue light is annoying- I cover it with cardboard and tape- but it is over the on switch so it's inconvenient to replace the tape to turn the unit on and off.
I really like the auto shut off. As diligent as I try to be about keeping enough water in it, sometimes it runs out. I recommend any warm mist unit should have an auto shut off for safety. I do add a pinch of salt to the water so it produces enough steam since my water is hard. Overall, if you need a cheap (look for it on sale) unit that does the job of humidifying a room, this is a good pick.
