Best kind are the steam humidifiers but they are pricey. I like bypass and misters equally. The misters are nice and small so they can go places a bypass can't. I like to put them over an evap coil so if they drip it goes into the drain pan. I don't like drum types, never have.

The mist kind is OK if your water quality is good. If you have hard or rusty water the scale will accumulate on the inside of the duct or a-coil. My preference is the bypass or power type with a replaceable pad that you can toss when it scales up.
