Holmes HM630-U Cool Mist Tower Humidifier Review


Think Twice

This cool-mist model earns poor user reviews, largely because the design of the water tank makes it very difficult to refill. Other problems include noisy operation and limited information provided in marketing materials about coverage and features.

Users at Epinions overall are dissatisfied with the Holmes HM630-U Cool Mist Tower Humidifier saying that it is a horrible shape and frustrating to refill. You need to use a bathtub to refill it and there is no flat surface on the tank to set it down to put the cap back on it. In addition to being hard to refill, Amazon users gripe that the budget humidifier is loud and breaks after only a few weeks. One user even said his floors became warped after it leaked all over.

Not a lot of information is available from the manufacturer about the Holmes HM630-U Cool Mist Tower Humidifier. We do know that it is a cool mist humidifier although the exact type is unknown. It works in medium rooms -- the exact size is unknown, and has an adjustable humidistat. Nothing is said about adjustable mist settings, an automatic shutoff or a warranty.

Where to buy

We don't like the lack of information available about this cheap humidifier. To top that off, users report multiple problems with this product from it being difficult to use, loud and faulty. Our bottom line is steer clear of this budget humidifier.
