At what cost

You can get Vornado Evap40 Evaporative Humidifier for slightly above 100+ which is acceptable in our books. First, you will get a high 1000 sq.ft. humidifying range along with a dual large water tank. There is also Intelligent humidification which is the equivalent of auto mode bundled. The only downside is the wick filters require replacing every 4-8 weeks. Expect to pay around 78- 156 annually depending on how frequently you want to replace the filters.
Vornado Evap40 might not be the latest model in the market, but you can still easily buy it on Amazon. Amazon has the best deal plus free shipping and 30-days return policy. Vornado's official website is also a good place to go as it offers direct shipping and the usual buyer's protection. Last but not least, Retailers like Best Buy, Walmart may or may not carry the product, so you can always try your luck there.

Other variants

Not a direct comparison as it is an ultrasonic humidifier. For a cheaper price, you do get a digital display, remote control, and both cold mist + warm mist humidification.

Cheaper but can cater to wider room space at about 2000+ square feet. Uses the same dual water tank approach but at a smaller 3-gallon capacity.

Pros

  • Cover up to 1,000 square feet of room size without having to constantly refill thanks to the dual water tank.
  • Intelligent humidification mode supported by the built-in humidistat and 3 uniform speed.
  • Long, uninterrupted operation that disperses up to 4-gallon of moisture per day.
  • Certified, safety-tested, and assembled in the USA with 5-years worry-free warranty.
  • Very easy to use and detach for cleaning.

Cons

  • Dated dial knob controls with no digital display and humidity reading.
  • Lack of precise humidity adjustment.
  • Wick filter has to be replaced every 4-8 weeks that can be costly in long-run.
  • Tad noisy and lack of supportive feature like timer, aromatherapy feature.
