Honeywell 3G Tower Humidifier
Don't Waste Your Money
This thing is a piece of junk. It quit working completely 18 months after I bought it, and it was only used in the winter. The fan is way too loud to begin with, and then it started to squeak and grind intermittently after only a couple of months of use. I returned the first one thinking it was a lemon, and the second one did exactly the same thing. I would not recommend this product and I certainly would not buy another one.

Surprised with reviews
I've had 2 of these humidifiers; one for almost 4 yrs, just more than 4 yrs. Never had an issue with either unit and the older has had extensive use.
I do agree that the units are on the noisy side, and the filters are quite pricey! But at the time of purchase, these were the more economical filters with a quality humidifier. The UV bulbs are kind of an over kill to me, since I'm using tap water which doesn't carry a lot of airborne problems, as far as I'm aware; and the waters gone in 24 hrs or less when we have the unit running. Definitely had a better effect in our apartment than the house, a noticeable difference to say the least.
I honestly don't understand the other reviewers, I guess I lucked out and got the ones made on tuesday or thursday. I suppose that they could have dropped quality in the time between, not sure to be honest though.
I hope this will be of some help to anyone.

Dont Waste Your Money!!!!!!!!
Horrible product...I was given this as a birthday present and it leaked, it was loud and the humidity control stopped working after one winter...so pretty much its a fan now...even when it was working, why does the vapor come out the bottom vent???who engineered this...I don't lay on the floor so why would I want the moisture at ankle height?....piece of junk

Works like a charm!
It's too bad to see so many bad reviews on here.
I bought 2 of these 3 years ago and they work beautifully. Our house gets VERY dry in the winter so we keep both of them running almost constantly from December to April. I've never had an issue.
Tips: Don't tip it in any direction after you fill it up, or water will leak.
Buy the Honeywell Humidifier Filter Product #43-5834-4 instead and trim about a inch of one end. It fits perfectly and you'll save yourself $7.00 a filter.

i bought two of these, one for our upstairs ,the other for our downstairs. the first one died after about 1 winter , the other one lasted two winters. I replaced the filters often, and they weren't cheap! Poor quality, very noisy, had to fill twice a day. felt it should have lasted much longer...just more junk for the landfill.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR $$$
I wrote a review on this Honeywell 3G Tower Humidifier, and about 1 hour after my wife let me know that our unit has leaked out an entire tank of water all over our floor! The unit worked pretty good for a few weeks, but I'm going to get a flow through humidifier installed on our furnace so the entire house gets humidity! Read the review, most people are un-happy with this product. Honeywell should be made aware so they can improve this! Until then CT should take this item off the shelves.

It just died
I am just about to look for my receipt to find out exactly when I bought this product: It has been at least 2 years (probably 3). I used it in our family room; and, it has become progressively noisier and less efficient each year. This year it started to realy sound angry, various sounds, squeeks and hums until today whet it finally just died. Until this year, it performed well; but, the 2 bedroom humidifyers that we have that are 1 to 2 years older and used more often, are still performing as new (those are both Bionaire). It is a pain to fill; and, it does spew out cold air. My wife smiled when it finally died (a smile I have never seen before). Good luck to those that choose to buy this product. It sounds like a hit and miss type of deal.

Has really helped!
We noticed very dry air in our house this year, got one of these humidifiers and it solved the issue! One thing I would have liked is a top-fill option like one of the lower level units I have seen. Over all its a great unit, 3 levels of output, even highest level isn't too loud. My youngest daughter (13) actually found the sound soothing to fall asleep to.

It's so loud. There's no way I can use it at night. It's big, awkward to load and if the water runs out, you have to re-wet the filter. I always use humidifiers and this is the worst one ever. It's my fault. I bought it because it was cheap. So yes, if you don't mind the noise, inconvenience and size, it will suit you. It hasn't broken yet. I'm off to buy another one.

Poor Quality Control
I have had this humidifier for about 3 weeks now and it has leaked the entire contents of the tank on to the floor twice. Will be taking it back for a refund.
