Which humidifier do you use and recommend?

I'm on the lookout for a cool mist humidifier that has an easy to fill tank and works relatively quiet with a large output. Preferably with an auto-shut off when tank is empty, and some kind of humidity display for the room. My apartment is very dry and we have absolutely no control over the baseboard heaters. I'll be using it in the bedroom and am willing to spend up to about $60 or so. If I can find one that does a really good job and could potentially do my entire 2 bedroom apartment, I'd be willing to spend $100. 

I have been congested pretty much throughout my entire pregnancy and I'm hoping to finally put the money down for a humidifier before baby is born on Christmas.

Thanks everyone for the help!

Warm mist on Nov 22, 2014 @ 08:14 pm

hi,

I just bought one last week by Honeywell at Canadian tire. I did my research online and opted for warm mist humidifier.
There is not much of a difference between warm and cool mist.
I'm also living in a place that has other tenants and they need the heat on at all times, this was causing severe dryness in my throat.
I was able to get this for under $50 bucks and it's pretty simple one.
No filters required, patts can be washed in the dishwasher.
Can hold upto 4.9 litres of water and will run upto 24 hours. Best part that it auto shuts off when out of water.
You hear no noise when running and has a little pocket on top to put medicine. I use it for Vicks.
Hope this info helps

I'd prefer a cool just because I always tend to run hot so I really don't need any added warm moisture in the air. But Honeywell does seem to be a fairly popular brand, so maybe I'll try them. Thanks for replying :)

Honeywell on Nov 23, 2014 @ 10:26 pm

We recently bought the Honeywell QuietCare Cool Mist Multi Room one. It holds 1.7 gallons of water and it's pretty quiet, unless it's on a high setting, then it's a tad bit loud, bit kind of soothing at the same time if you're trying to sleep. Mine alsoi runs up to 24 hours if filled right up and automatically turns off when it's out of water. It was pretty expensive though, cost close to $200. But well worth it, it will be out to a lot of use this winter

model #? on Nov 24, 2014 @ 02:08 pm

What was the model #? On the Honeywell site I see something with the same name but only $120. http://www.honeywellstore.com/store/products/honeywell-hcm-6009-quiet-care-cool-moisture-console-humidifier-9-gallon.htm That seems like a pretty good price if it really does work well and coveres that square footage. It would most definitely do my entire apartment. Strangely this review (http://ratingle.com/best-cool-mist-humidifier-reviews/honeywell-quietcare-humidifier-hcm-6009-review/) says it's 9 gallon, but the offical Honeywell site only says 3.4 gallon, yet it lasts more square footage covered than listen in the review.

When reading reviews on Amazon they're always so mixed and it makes me question everything. So many people say that machine is good, but then an equal amount seem to say it's insanely loud and the tanks are hard to refill.
