VIOlife Ultrasonic Personal Humidifier
I do not like to run down my purchases (actually I love 99% of my purchases) but…this is a product that I would love to change my review down to about 2 stars, at most.
I bought one when it was a TS about a year ago. TONS of reviews said their’s died in a short period. Mine lasted about 3ish months before it made a HORRIBLE noise and stopped working…that was identical to the other reviews, just that mine took longer to die.
In all fairness, VIOlife replaced it for free (keep in mind, you have a 1 year limited warranty…use it!) but, that one died in just over a month. They only offer one free replacement…HOWEVER they gave me a full refund (well, sans the original shipping which was about three bucks.) so I give their CS 5-stars…the product at that time 1-star.
I love the size, the shape, the look, the control, the LED and the travel case/nice water bottle that I also purchased.
I sure as heck hope that they redesigned or rebuilt the atomizer portion as that has to be what failed.
Today I should get the Hunter device that was recently on…hoping that is more durable. When it gets here, I will immediately look for the warranty. In addition to the Hunter device, I got the Holmes Cube from the bullseye store (holds 1/2 gallon and runs about 12 hours on low.)
Lastly, I will ALWAYS use distilled water. We in Los Angeles have fairly hard water and I would get the " white dust syndrome" from the minerals…even if I did a half and half mix. If you have soft water you may be ok but keep an eye on furniture and your TV screen for unexplained white dust.
Love my VIOlife toothbrushes but with this product, buyer beware.
Me too—I finally bought my puppy dogs their own pillow cases and let them have my bed pillows.
I will never find pillows for myself—-I must have 2 under my head and arm….Let me know if these exist .BB
Pipman, Thanks so much for sharing that info as I know now not to purchase. Another question for you if you have the time, it is my understanding you really like the MY Pillow?? I am searching for the perfect pillow & have tried all kinds only to go in the garbage. The latest one I have bought is the Joy Mangano pillow which I have gotten info that in about 3-4 months I will want to get rid of that one too so I guess my 85 lb chocolate Lab will be getting that pillow. Is the My Pillow still working for you?? I am really tired of wasting money on pillows with false promises… thanks for your reply & if I don’t hear from you I want to wish you Happy Holidays!! 🙂
good to know
I have 2 of the Violife humidifiers, one purchased last year and one several weeks ago. I have not had a problem with either one. Neither one leaks or gets my night stand or bedding wet. The Hunter humidifier on the other hand gets my bedding soaking wet. I put it on the night stand and it ran all night. Was so surprised when I woke up this morning to find my sheets and comforter wet. Thankfully the top of my wood night stand was not ruined. Needless to say the Hunter humidifier will be returned.
Mine is still working. I did clean it with some vinegar to get the mineral out. But I agree I would not buy it again. I am looking for a replacement for it as the longevity of the unit is probably almost up.
I did see the one in the Bullseye store, Pipman can you give that one a thumb up or down? Or is it too soon to tell?
I took mine to the office where it stopped working on the 33rd day! I used the toothbrushes for years and still use a travel one.
