Bought this when my toddler and I got a very nasty cough. After experience of cheap humidifiers being noisy and soaking the room I was very pleased with this model. The flow can be well controlled and aimed. Comes with a handy humidity thermometer. Has a soft nightlight in tank to see water level. Excellent for sore throats, colds and coughs really does give a better nights rest and worth spending extra for this one as it is quiet, efficient and easy to clean.
