I bought this to replace a "cool mist" humidifier that was filling my house with white dust. Living in Arizona, I've owned many humidifiers over the years. This one is the most effective at quickly dumping large amounts of H20 into the air that I've ever used. However, it is so loud on all settings that it is essentially unusable unless qualify of life is of no value to you (or you have a way to banish it to a place where it doesn't bother you). I run it at night when my bedroom door is shut and when I leave the house. As others have reported, it can leak water on the floor if the reservoirs are disturbed. Once you get the hang of how to handle them, this doesn't seem to be a problem.

I bought unit to replace my ""old"" Holmes HM3600 humidifier which was still working and had a great variable automatic humidistat by turning a knob. It looked beat after many years of service. After using its replacement for two weeks it's time to comment. CONS: Humidistat useless only works on fully on; I wanted to give it a chance to possibly correct itself but no. I leave in Arizona and today checked outside humidity which was 16% (my readings were 15%) and the humidifier has not ran in 36 hours. The inside humidity was 6% and this low humidity could not encourage the Humidistat to turn on by itself at any setting other than ""Stay On."" Guess it could never have an Energy Star rating. As criticized by others it only has two speeds low and super fast/loud. They could have given it a lower high speed so that the fan would not blow so fast past the wet filter and might be more efficient in picking up moisture. PROS: Although it has no sensor to tell it the unit is out of water of water I like the ability to look at the translucent water tanks and see the actual current levels. It appears that the location of the filter seems to keep the filter from clogging up as quickly as my old unit that used the same filters. I still use the Hard Water Additive from Holmes as in the past. This was another a reason I bought this model as I had stocked up on the HWF75 filters and did not want them to go to waste. I like the new water fill location and in my case work great at the kitchen sink. No problems with leakage but when the unit was new the first fill splashed some water out of the tank holder. Three pros and two cons gets a 3 out of 5 rating.

Comments about Holmes HM3855L-UM Humidifier:

It is the right size and look. We use this to help humidifier the room our guitars hang in. It keeps the room at the right humidity with very little effort on our part. It is also very quite. We have not had any problems with the unit.

2000 sq ft capacity - I don't think so

By photoshopgrl

from Columbus, OH

Comments about Holmes HM3855L-UM Humidifier:

My house is about 1700 sq ft. I have had this on full fan speed non stop for almost a week. The humidity level in the same room it stands doesn't go above 35%. The previous humidifier I had didn't need full speed to get to 40+%. Such a waste of money.

Nice Humidifier

By rozey

from Branson, MO, United States

Comments about Holmes HM3855L-UM Humidifier:

We've had this humidifier for over a month and it has worked flawlessly. Easy to set up, easy to use, fairly quiet, filters the air going through the unit and refilling the unit's 2 water containers is simple to do. Well designed and puts plenty of humidity into the air to keep our place very comfortable during the dry cold winter months. We like it a lot.

This is a really bad humidifier. Didn't even use it and it is almost too late to send it back. Plus I would have to pay full postage and insure it for it's full price.

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
