Does not maintain Humidity in a room

Date:March 14, 2014
I've had this unit for a week. I have it in a small 12' x 12' room, with the door closed. I need to maintain a 45% humidity in this room as I keep my guitar building wood in there. When I set the humidity setting to 45% on this unit, it does not shut off no where near this level. The humidity shoots to 57 in the room, and the unit does not shut off. Also tried using a separate gauge in case the one I was using was faulty. I got the same reading on that one too!! I then tried 40% on the machine. The humidity level was not maintained again. Finally, I tried the low setting, high, and the auto. No matter what, the humidity level would not maintain. In a small room no less. I called customer service. They checked with engineering. I couldn't believe it when CS told me that the unit has an error margin of 15%!!!! Wow!! Then this should be relayed to the customer on Vornado's website and all their information on the product. I mean, what is the point of having a humidstat feature on the unit,if it doesn't work???? Deceptive for those who need to regulate humidity more precisely.

Response from Vornado Air:By Consumer ServiceMarch 17, 2014
I apologize for the inconvenience with the Ultra3. Our humidifiers will take the humidity reading sampling very close to the unit as it ciculates the humidity throughout the room. As with most humidifier products, there is an expectation that there will be a certain amount of control tolerance. The environment of the room and furniture will have an effect on the overall control ability. Vornado wants you to be happy using our products, please call our 800-234-0604 consumer line, ask for the supervisor for additional assistance.

Very Satisfied

Date:January 18, 2014
Have had this product for 2 years and am very happy with it. What impresses me the most is how quiet it is. I have no problems filling and or seeing how much water I am putting in tank as I sit the tank in the small side of my dish drainer and there is a window back of my sink. The tank stands up , which leaves both of my hands free and the window provides enough light to see through the tank walls. Hope this helps some of those who are having trouble filling and seeing how much water they have added. I really think this is a great product.

Sounds like a loud fountain

Date:November 4, 2012
Works well but is SO NOISY. Like a very loud waterfall or fountain. Manual says bubbling noise is normal, but you can't watch TV or talk over the loud babbling noise of the water. Ultrasonic implies that it's quiet. It is not.
