I bought this steamer as a Christmas gift for myself just after the holidays. I was starting a new job and figured it would save me a ton of time instead of ironing my dress shirts. Well, it didn't. Its true that it's a whole lot easier than ironing, but it doesn't get the same result. It's more convenient in that it takes less space than an ironing board, but you'll spend a lot of time trying to get wrinkles out. It works best if the clothes are still a little bit damp.
Anyways, I started having problems with it a short while ago. It would beep as if there was no water and then it would turn off. I noticed that one of the screws located inside the intake chamber was completely corroded, while the other one was fine. but thought nothing of it. A google search suggested that others were having the same problem. The solution, supposedly, is to fill it with vinegar and leave it overnight. I tried it but to no avail. Upon closer investigation, the screw in the intake chamber was actually so corroded that it had broken, disconnecting one of the wires on the inside. The thing still beeps, but that's about it!
Long story short, I spent about $100 on this piece of junk 7 months ago and I've gotten a fair bit of use out of it, but the quality of the components as others have suggested is pretty, pretty crap. I would definitely not buy this product again, even for half the price it is being sold for. If I had to do it again, which I guess I do, I would either buy a steam iron or a more expensive, but better quality garment steamer.
