RE: Humidity
For what it's worth:
The poll doesn't address the automatic feature with a Climateline heated hose on the Resmed. Also, If you turn it to manual, the default setting is 8.

Statistics prove that people who have more birthdays live longer.

RE: Humidity
One needs to take into consideration the lot of different machines used, and the options in humidify level are not the same.
On my PR System One, if I use heated hose, then my options are 1,2,or 3, which I seem to fall back on 2.
If I turn heated hose off, then my options are 1 through 5, and I find 3 comfortable.
Plus it will probably vary between winter and summer. With all that said, I vote 3.

I set mine to the same. I tried for weeks to find the right temperature/humidity setting. I finally just set it to 'auto', and never had rainout or dry nasal passages since.

RE: Humidity
I run Climateline at 30 degrees year-round (the highest it will go), so I voted 5.
