I only have the other one to compare it to, but here is how they compare:
Price: Vicks is more expensive. Sad face.
Amount of time it lasts throughout the night: When placed on High, the Vicks lasts all night and the Safety 1St was completely out of water in the morning. Granted the Safety 1st may be putting more vapor in the air, so likely not the best comparison. When I would put the Safety 1st on midlevel it would last all night.
Features: Vicks has auto shutoff. Safety 1st keeps trying to pump out mist and then has a very bright red light that comes on. Vicks also has the ability to add the soothing scented pads that help open up the airways. Personally, I like how Vicks smells, so it is a really nice feature.
Light that tells you it is on: Safety First has a very bright light, like very annoying to have a bright gleam of light as you are trying to sleep at night. Vicks also has one, but it is more muted in brightness.
Colors: Safety 1st is geared more towards babies so it comes in pink and blue. Vicks is only in blue.
Sound: I feel like I could hear the Safety 1st one working. Not a terrible sound, almost like a light fan or wind. The Vicks one is extremely quiet. I had it running next to my head and it was not bothersome at all.
Leaking: I did not experience leaking with either humidifier
I absolutely love Vicks® CoolMist Humidifier because it really makes such a difference, and I think that is a must have for any household. Its compact size makes it easy for storing or displaying anywhere in a small room, without taking too much space. Vicks® CoolMist Humidifier is super quiet, very easy to use and clean, and provides a good humidity level for the room. This humidifier is very effective and beneficial for my whole family because it helps us breath easily and sleep better without stuffy nose in the morning. Sometimes I place it on the shelf next to the chameleon`s cage, and he absolutely loves chilling under the nice cool mist. When the container is filled with water and is turned up at maximum, it goes for around 7 to 8 hours and then shut off automatically which is pretty cool. We are using Vicks® CoolMist Humidifier every single day and night for a month, and I have not experienced any problems with it whatsoever. If you have kids and/or if you are in the market for a humidifier I would highly recommend Vicks® CoolMist Humidifier.
