Tell me about your in-room humidifiers...

I've had it up to here with dry skin and the rest brought on by the forced air heat in my house, and I've decided that I want an in-room humidifier. I'll start with one in the bedroom for now.
I've resisted up to now because of the apparent need for daily maintenance, but I'm willing to deal with that as long as it is relatively easy and quick to accomplish. I've considered an in-duct humidifier but I'm a little afraid of having white dust all over my house from any minerals in the water.
The rooms in my house are quite small, and all of the rooms upstairs (where the humidifier will be) are carpeted, if that makes any difference.
Things that I won't like: fiddly parts or any user-unfriendly design; a weight of more than 15 pounds; tendency to leak; white mineral dust all over the place; stuff that breaks down after a few months.
Do you have an in-room humidifier? What kind? For how long? Anything that you don't like about it? Overall, are you happy that you have it?
