    Highest Rated Consumer Review by the Community

  • Pulls the dry right out of the air!

    May 23, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great exterior design, produces a lot of vapor, efficient, humidifies fairly quickly
    Cons: Seal between the tank walls and the tank floor is fragile

    Summary: I live in the very hot, and dry mojave desert area of California, where the average humidity in summer stays around 5-10% in the daytime and 20% at night. Needless to say, this level of humidity is very tough on anyones skin and because of this my nose ... read more

  • Still Great After 4 Years!

    May 7, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: VERY QUIET! Perhaps the most important feature in a vaporizer or humidifier.
    Cons: Automatic shutoff would be nice. Filters not as available as they could be.

    Summary: To combat a cold, our son's pediatrician recommended a cool mist vaporizer when he was just a few weeks old. The doctor said it was better than almost any medicine. We went out and bought a Vicks Ultrasonic V5100. Four years later, we're still using ... read more

  • V5100N

    Feb 11, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Silent, easy to fill, easy to clean.
    Cons: More expensive that the other units.

    Summary: Please note, this is for the V5100N humidifier, not the V5100 ** Email from manufacturer as follows :- "The V5100N is a new revision to the V5100. It works in the same way, it just has a slightly more "modern" look to it." I didn't think I ... read more

  • Two Lemons

    Pros: Compact and quiet
    Cons: Tank filling cap gets stuck and is very hard to unscrew.

    Summary: I bought one of these at Target for $52 which I thought was overpriced, but I was happy with the way it worked out of the box.  After a few days it stopped emitting mist and got very hot.  I exchanged it, and the same thing happened within two ... read more

  • Works well but smells fishy

    Rated Show
    Pros: Good mist production all night (or day). Very very quiet.
    Cons: Strange fishy smell I can't seem to eliminate.

    Summary: I bought this Vicks Ultrasonic V5100 1.50 Gallon Humidifier because I live in an apartment complex that uses radiated heat (therefore extremely dry sleeping conditions!). I think I paid about $40 for it at CVS. I think it works very well--it produces a ... read more

  • Lots of vapors

    Feb 1, 2007 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Quiet, lot of control over how much vapor
    Cons: Lid has to be pretty tight or it will leak; sensitive to hard water

    Summary: This really cranks out the vapors! We were told by our doctor that a humidifier would help keep our babies from getting sick & was good for colds. We run it in their room almost every night, and at full volume it will go through a gallon a night. I like ... read more

  • LEAKS

    Rated Show
    Pros: QUIET, easy to fill.
    Cons: Leaked around all of the base and on & off switch on first use.

    Summary: This is an update on Jan 19. It's not leaking any more. I think the base needed to be wet around the edge when first used to make a seal. On the 2nd day it only leaked a little around the on and off switch. It is used nightly and there are no more leaks. ... read more

  • Dial/knob doesn't do anything

    Nov 2, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: None
    Cons: No variable output, no automatic off

    Summary: This is the fourth ultrasonic humidifier I've purchased over the last 10 years and the only one that doesn't really work. It does put "vaporized" water into the air, but the knob which has symbols from "a little moisture" to "a lot of moisture" doesn't ... read more

  • Easy to Use and Fill, Does it's Job

    Feb 25, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Really quiet operation, adjustable humidity level for user's comfort
    Cons: Wish it had automatic shut-off, I don't believe it does

    Summary: This humidifier is easy to fill, basically easy to clean, and does it's job nicely. You can adjust the amount of humidity coming out by a push/slide button on the front and the nozzle on the top. When operating, it is all out SILENT. I mean really ... read more

  • Love It

    Rated Show
    Pros: Whisper Quiet, Lots of Mist
    Cons: None so far

    Summary: Just purchased at CVS for $49.99 last week and it is the best cool mist humidifier I have ever had. We use it constantly because our home is very dry and we have a 5 month old. It really is whisper quiet and puts off a ton of mist. Yet it will last 12-14 ... read more
