Philips RespironicsConsumerAffairs Unaccredited Brand
I like that it comes on automatically if I start breathing in the mask and it goes off automatically if I take the mask off. I also like that it has a tube that can be heated and that I can choose how much humidity I want. I feel it helps me get quality sleep and without it, I keep waking up. It is simple to use. However, I don't like the mask that I am using, it is uncomfortable. I will be trying on different masks soon.
It is easy to fill the humidifier, it is super quiet, it is simple to put the mask on and as soon as you breathe the machine starts. It is very comfortable and does not bother my sleep. If I forget to travel with it I am miserable the whole time. It is amazing the difference it makes on how you feel.
I like how easy it is to clean. I also like that it is comfortable and less bulk than other brands. I used to go out of my way not to use my machine because I felt that I couldn't sleep with it in, but I find with my Philips I'm able to actually sleep in the comfortable positions I like. I also like that it's relatively quiet. As with any CPAP machine, they could always be ideally smaller and quieter. Compared to others, my Philips isn't bad but ideally I would like to barely feel it hardly at all when I'm trying to sleep, but that may be unavoidable.
I can either turn Philips Respironics on full blast right from the bat or I can push a button to start the air out slow and slowly built up to the right amount of air. Philips Respironics is simple to use but I have two toddlers so I am getting up often during the night, taking it off and putting it back on that it starts to get frustrating and I question whether or not I want to wear it at all. Also, you need to clean it often and the parts wear out and you need to replace them every so often.
It's a great machine that works well. As someone with respiratory problems and breathing problems, I can use this machine at night and know that I will get a proper sleep and not drive anyone nuts. However, I don't like that the whole thing is on my face as I don't like things touching my face, but I do like the effectiveness of it. If there was a way it wasn't constrictive I'd like it a lot better. I feel it helps me get quality sleep and my girlfriend is very grateful that she can also sleep. I would recommend it for anyone that has breathing problems and can't sleep.

No sound is a great advantage. I really love how Philips Respironics is comfortable and long cord helps you move better at night. It absolutely help and improved the quality of my sleep. I can't sleep without it. It is very easy to use. However, it's little bit bulky in appearance and look big on my face. Sometimes I feel my face itching because of mask. It can be improved by small cannula on nose. But it's a very comfortable machine that is easy to use. I recommended to my family members who snores at night.
I like all the features of the CPAP Machine from Philips Respironics. The controls are very simple and are illuminated so you can see at night. It makes very little noise and has a water reservoir belt in that is easy to use. The facepiece is very durable and the supply hose is the right length. It is also very comfortable to wear with no air leaks.
I like how quiet the CPAP Machine from Philips Respironics is. It also make breathing easier and give better quality sleep when I put my mask on. It automatically turns on and also has a water storage to add water to the air so my throat don't get dry. However, the water storage not big enough. I run out of water in it in the middle of the night and the water tank should be easier to get cleaned. Also the air filters fall out too easy. It needs something to hold it in like maybe a little plastic clip to hold it in place. Nevertheless, I love my machine. The mask fits well and I can still hold my kids at night and all sleep good.
The CPAP machine from Philips Respironics keeps me breathing right. It has a tight fit and doesn't slip or move around on my sleep over night and I wake up feeling good and refreshed. I was worried about whether it would stop me from sleeping but it doesn't, and the machine is not really loud. It's comfortable to wear and I hardly know I'm wearing it. I get the best night I have in years. I thought I would have to get to wearing it; but it was right away.
The Philips Respironics CPAP Machine is very good, reliable and comfortable to use. It's also unique, very effective and portable. It has exhalation pressure relief, heated tubing and masking relief. I started using my CPAP equipment and I noticed two improvements and I stopped suffering from painful leg cramps. Everything is perfect.
It is easy to turn on and off. It is fairly quiet. It has variable pressure and allows me to ease into breathing. I like being able to adjust the moisture settings. I wish it were easier to clean though. It can develop a smell fairly quickly. I wish the nose insert were more comfortable. The nose insert can start to chafe after having it in for a while. Besides that, it is very easy to use and is generally comfortable although some nights I just do not really want to wear it. It does help me most nights, but sometimes it takes a few nights in a row for the effect to accumulate.
Philips Respironics makes the CPAP machine that I use most often. I enjoy it for the peace of mind and quality of sleep that it gives me. It is very comfortable and easy to wear.I will continue to use it in the future.
Sleep worse with Philips Respironics as my pillow forces the hose up, causing the mask to slide down, making more noise and waking me and wife up. Been on vacation without it and have slept well every night.
I replaced an old machine and find the mask and the air tube at the top makes sleeping on my stomach more comfortable. And no lines on my face in the morning!
I was not sure about using a CPAP machine. Several of my friends have Philips Respironics, they complain about how annoying it is to use them. When mine was delivered to my home a representative from the medical supply company set it up and explained everything to me. The machine is very quiet. I have no complaints.
Being able to adjust the amount of moisture delivered to the mask makes Philips Respironics the best CPAP around. I can increase it in the winter when the air is too dry. It also helps to release sinus headaches, with an adjustment from 1 to 5.
Have had Philips Respironics for five years. Struggled with it for a short period, but now I am unable to sleep properly without using it. Blood pressure went down and wake up refreshed.
Nice machine, very quiet and portable, but short lived. I'm on my third Philips Respironics in less than 2 years. Screen will read "Service Required" and they just stop working.
