Definitely not worth the price. As someone mentioned before, the warm steam is misleading and for some reason when you put it on this mode, it uses more water. The unit itself is difficult to fill and builds up algae inside the unit rather fast. It is extremely bright at night and the most annoying thing is that is goes from dim to bright in a 5 second space.. all night long. We bought a warm steam humidifier after getting this one for R299 and works twice as well. The only feature of this unit is that it's the only one that comes with a remote. For a cold steam humidifier, it does it's job and that's about it.

Great product! I have two now.

I already have 1 for a year now. Needed a 2nd one for the baby room.
I like the fact that it has cool & warm mist. We like the way it works and the water capacity - so we put it on at night and it lasts without having to refill.
Worth the money.

I purchased this item from TakeAlot a few weeks back. The first unit was faulty, which was exchanged happily by them within days. The unit is very sleek, lightweight and does what it says. It monitors the humidity in the room and acts as a nightlight which is a plus for my family. From other reviews, people often complain about the hygrometer not measuring the humidity correctly. I think it is just a matter of it being faulty and that people should request for a new item.

Awesome to look at but that's where it ends. It leaks and the brittle plastic cracks after a week of use.

Good product, works well. Overall I am happy with my purchase, but I did feel that the warm steam description is misleading... regardless of the setting the vapour (not steam) that comes out is always cold. (I even called their support to check if unit is working correctly and they confirmed the above.. )
My 2 other small complaints:
1) The display is blue LED and quite bright at night.. it does not dim after you change settings so it is a bit like having a night light in the room.
2) The beeps when you change settings (on unit or via remote) is ridiculously loud in my opinion. Change something in the middle of the night and it sounds like you are in a submarine with the sonar going...

Piece of rubbish if you ask me. I returned my first one because it was just oozing water creating a mess! The second one does the same thing if it happens to be off. So, if you get a power outage, expect a dam in your house.
The LED is just too bright. I bostik an old bank card in front to mute the light.
The warm steam is a myth. There's nothing like that!
I sent their support a query to replace it and till today (after a year) I'm still awaiting their response.
Buy at your own risk!

Worst product ever! Leaks now and I bought it in March 2016, so now I missed the 12 month warranty.
Jonathan, South Africa. 22 January 2017
Really really Good. I felt it worked instantly.
I love the auto setting. I don't quite feel it does 12 hours, but it certainly lasts a long time. By the way: even my Munchkin cats sleep better. It's super quiet. No gurgling. Pure bliss!

Best one we have had in 35 years. Instructions a bit confusing but a call to the suppliers was handled perfectly. The only niggle is , being electronic, the manufacturers could well have incorporated a dimmer facility on the display, it is excessively bright at night.
Ewert, South Africa. 24 April 2015
Looks fancy and high quality but that's where it stops. The humidistat on this piece of rubbish does not function anywhere near correctly (am returning the 2nd unit now). This happily puffs fog saying that the current humidity measures 44% when in actual fact the cloud inside the room is just short of turning into a thunder storm and the other hygrometer in the room gives an error reading as the humidity exceeds its measurable range.

Love the product! Super fast service. Collected the item and the staff were all so friendly.

Awesome product for the Johannesburg winter ! Not only does it rid the house of the excessively dry air, but seems to heat the room so a heater is not needed. I can highly recommend !
Howard, South Africa. 9 August 2017
Great product. Extremely silent and would definitely recommend using it

This works very well. Above my expectations.
