Product is not as good as it used too be.
Your review: I had this same model for 10 years before the electric motor burned out. Unfortunately, the new version of this model is not as good as the previous. For starters, it is much noisier. The lowest fan setting is the equivalent of the middle setting on the old model. I always ran the old model on the lowest fan setting and it was very quiet. It easily kept my 1800 square foot house at 40% humidity and I didn't have to turn it off at night as it was no louder than a refrigerator. This model has to be turned off at night because of the noise (the 3 higher speeds are ridiculous - it sounds like a hurricane inside the house). Secondly, the digital humidistat is not as good as the analog on the old model. I could set the old model precisely to any percentage by using a hygrometer in conjunction with the analog dial. Can't do that with this model as it only has increments of 5%. When I set it to 40%, it is really 34% and when I set it to 45%, it is really 39%.
Pros: Easy to fill. Easy to clean.
Cons: Noisy on lowest setting. Too noisy to run at night. Digital humidisat is not accurate. Cycles on and off every minute when desired humidity is reached.
