I've had this for over three years with no issues. Yeah, you need to clean it weekly and replace hoses, filter, and mask perhaps yearly, but it works great. I've no design-related issues that others mention.

I have been using this machine for near 6 months. It certainly is quiet, but has a high pitched whine in the background that may disturb some difficult-to-fall-asleep people.
I am in the medical field having had experience in high care environments -- thus I do not ever use the humidifier. I prefer to breathe the air with its normal qualities (that I would have been breathing anyway had I not used a CPAP) than some air going through a heated or not heated humidifier. Most of the bad lung infections in the high care were traced back to germ colonies that have established in the humidifiers -- an ideal medium. If you do HAVE to use a humidifier, clean, wash, and disinfect EVERY day. They also tend to accumulate some scale on the bottom, depending on the hardness of the water used, that needs to be removed regularly.
I also unplug my S8 Auto every morning -- I found that if I don't, the air supply for the first couple of minutes appear warm, and is irritating to me as it is a sudden change from what I have been breathing.
The machine is extremely well made (so are probably all of them) but maybe a little on the expensive side if compared to some other equivalent CPAP machines.
Also, you can set the pressure, etc. yourself -- to make it comfortable for your circumstances.
I do intend to use mine for a number of years . . .

Best machine Resmed has made. I have tried both the s8 and s9. I think the s8 is better hands down.

The humidifier unit is excellent,but the water container breaks in exactly 6 weeks, no matter how gently I treat it. The retaining ring on the bottom cracks. I have been forced to resort to glue to seal the tub together, as my insurance only pays for a new one every 6 months. This is a serious design flaw.

I really like this machine a lot. Its small and lightweight and doesn't break. Although my friends prefer the new S9 Auto.with the heated tube, I still prefer my great S8 Auto. Just wish it was less expensive so I can buy another.

I purchased this machine just over a year ago, the question and answers helped when I purchased it, they were very helpful. It it is great for when you need to travel as it is small and light weight and I also have a boat, so it fits nice in there. It is very quiet and compact, the service from this supplier has been extraordinary. I had a problem with it and they went over and above to fix my problem. a big thank you. I would refer them to anyone.

This machine is perfect for travel! Quiet, easy to operate, and works overseas. I took this unit on my long flight to Australia and used it on the plane. Hooked up my Resmed cpap to the DC converter, then to my cpap battery. Although I had no problems with the airline, I would suggest calling your airline first to make sure.

This little machine is great for travelers. The cpap and heated humidifier come apart with ease. The unit itself is incredibly quiet, with my average pressure at 10cmH2o. My wife and I can both get a good nights sleep again.
After a year I was so pleased that I purchased a second one which I use for travel. Great system,, great reporting and diagnostic capabilities.I shopped around and was hoping to find a better machine but this is the ultimate. I am considering the new slim model just released ResMed S9 Escape with EPR and H5i Heated Humidifier but not sure it is sufficiently different. Thank you Chris for professional advise, great service and prompt delivery.
