Purchased unit in April 2016 because of advertised small size. It's true, the CPAP itself is small. But with the humidifier unit, it's no smaller than other companies' products. So the "Mini" is essentially a lie. It's much noiser than my wife's respironics unit. And when the unit accidentally got turned on it's side, the humidifier leaked water into the CPAP itself and ruined the circuitboard. Transcend refused to honor the warranty because of the water damage. Rather than correct the design flaw, they chose to simply put in the fine print that water damage was not covered by the warranty.

Being small made it flimsy, loud, and lacking features I've grown accustomed to. By B Ferguson, TX
Transcend AUTO Mini Auto-CPAP Machine System with EZEX
This is going to be great to travel with. There seems to be a bit more noise than with my larger Respironics CPAP. The increased noise seems to emanate from my mask, which is the same one that I normally use. By Ron, Anacortes, WA
Excellent Machine for Travel
The Transcend APAP machine is a significant upgrade to their earlier generation machine which operated at a fixed pressure. When using their optional HME (Heat Moisture Exchange) mask assembly, this is truly a portable machine which can be used everywhere. Although it makes a bit more noise than a conventional full sized machine, it is excellent. Works on airplanes and remote locations without power. You only need to recharge every two days.

Good Without Humidifier!
This is a great little machine on its own. The exception is in conjunction with the water chamber. Whatever you do, DO NOT ORDER THE HUMIDIFIER!!! I have tried three different water chamber replacements in the last not-quite-a-year and every one of them has leaked. Leaked to the point that it has ruined my beautiful and expensive night stand that I have had for over 40 years. It is necessary for me to use a humidifier as we live in a very arid climate, so the entire thing sits on the tiled floor. Just be forewarned. By Cathie, AZ
Way to go
I have had nothing but good things to say about Cpapxchange. They have saved me some big bucks. By Denis B , Arlington Texas
The first couple of nights were difficult. The machine came with the ramp feature pre-set. Once I was able to change that (request your preferred ramp setting when ordering to prevent this problem) all went well. I did put a piece of velcro on the "ON" button to make it easier to find in the dark. The service from CPAPExchange was excellent, delivery was on time, and machine works great. Would also recommend getting the larger travel bag. As a truck driver this unit is awesome. By H T Hart, Fordland, MO
this little machine is the bomb! it's quiet, easy to use and actually lets me get a decent night of sleep. i'll never regret the investment. By Dr J Lois, pittsburgh,pa
Transcend Auto Mini is louder
I purchased the Transcend Auto as a spare CPAP machine for use in a vacation home. I chose it mainly because of its size and other comments. I have a S9 ResMED which was originally prescribed for me. The Transcend is noticeably louder that the S9, especially when exhaling. When adding the humidifier to it, the size may be a bit smaller but the volume of space occupied is somewhat similar to the S9. I expect that my spouse will not be too happy with it due to the noise. Might have to put it in a drawer to cut down on the noise. By Rob S, Scottsdale
Small size is a real plus.
As others have mentioned in their reviews, it is very difficult to find the on/off switch in the dark. It needs to be raised in height so you can reach out to turn it on wothout looking. Other than that is is very good, although a bit noisier than my Respironics machine. It will be perfect for our month long trip in Europe and I rather doubt, when we come home, that I will go back to my old one! By Dolly S, Wilmington, DE
So Far, So Good
Purchased the mini auto-cpap for a two month trip that I will be leaving for soon. I did a practice run a couple nights and have no complaints. The small size is perfect. The service was very good when I ordered and it arrived in a timely manner. One small complaint is that due to it's weight it has a hard time staying on bedside table. I ended up putting it on my tablet and that gave enough traction to keep it in place. My husband is going to glue some little pads on the bottom of it and that will solve the problem. All and all I am VERY happy with my purchase. By Nancy M., California
I had a stint of doctor approved off-cpap time for about 10 years, but now that the Department of Transportation is cracking down on even the mildest of OSA cases, i am back on the what my wife calls the Darth Vader machine, only now,with this machine being so small and quiet, and with the ezex and auto titration, this almost doesn't seem like the same thing at all. By Heath, Sacramento CA

Excelent smallest CPAP machine PERFECT FOR The COUNTRIES WITH ELECTRICITY PROBLEM VERY GOOD FOR TRAVELING By Abdul R K, USA
CPAP EXCHAGE SERVICE
I have dealt with this firm for over a year on several occasions. In each and every case, they have been a delight to deal with. Knowledgeable, friendly and extremely helpful. When a problem arose, they did not shy away but rose to the occasion to solve 110%. I highly recommend them. By Eric L., CA
Great for camping but it's too loud
I love how small and compact it is. The 2 battery works for 2+ days (but not 3). I am uncomfortable with how loud it is. Unless I am camping or the power goes out I will probably keep using my ResMed. By Gail, Minnesota
Great Little machine. I use the P8 Battery and it lasts over 10 hours. Way enough for one night's sleep. Good software too. Don't forget to charge the battery NOT connected to the machine the first time. In the morning, hit the Ramp button AND the power button simultaneously to blow excess moisture out of the machine for thirty minutes. It will shut of automatically. This will increase the life of the machine. Because of the battery life, software, cost, and all that's included in the travel bag, I think this is a better value than the Z1. Happy zzzzz's
By jlawr, Dallas, TX
A real disappointment, this machine is both very loud and the auto feature is uneven. I have used two other auto cosmos and they are superior in every way. It's small and light but I'll never benefit because I'll never use it. By Ron, Cleveland
The Transcend is a wonderful machine. Very small, and works as well has my Resmed. It is quieter than the Resmed. The EZEX setting drops the exhale pressure (a lot). I purchased the water container and it works well too. The water chamber is large enough for over 8 hours. I tried the Z1, however it does not perform as well as the Transcend Auto. I recommend the Transcend for home as well as travel. By Carolyn, Los Angeles
Bought the Auto Ezex for travel. Love the size and battery. Very helpful. By Dave, Usa
Transcend Auto Portable CPAP System
The service was good. The unit arrived within the stated time period with everything I ordered. The Auto CPAP was as small as I had hoped. I have only one issue which is a minor one. The unit is so light you need to place it on a surface that provides a bit of friction so the unit doesn't slide off the night stand. I also purchased the 2 day battery pack with it. It lasted 2 nights plus a couple of hours as advertised. I plan on using the unit on the airplane for overseas travel. By B. Wood, Ft. Lauderdale
I took this product on the airlines for its first trip out. Getting the airport was so much easier. On the plane, there was no need for the overhead storage. The unit stayed on the nightstand without sliding off. Finally...a really workable product that is lightweight. This is great for those who are mobility-challenged.
Overall: Excellent!! By Susan C, Rapid City, SD
A great travel auto-CPAP
I've been traveling regularly for about 10 years with a CPAP, and have been looking for a really good one ever since my (sadly discontinued) Goodknight travel CPAP took a dive in the security line of the Hartford, CT airport several years ago. I've used a few different models since then, but most are blocky, if small. The Transcend is the smallest I've ever used, and after two weeks of use on the road seems to have few, if any, drawbacks. I really like the fact that it comes with software that allows both configuration and the ability to view compliance data, which I've never really paid attention to before. The only flaw in the design that I can see is the strange curved bottom, obviously left over from the previous head-mounted models from Transcend, but I've found that a standard hotel washcloth does a great job keeping it in place, even on slippery granite-topped bedside tables. I love this machine. Small, light, whisper quiet (most noise comes from my exhalation), great light-weight battery options. And the best part - it fits in the outside "bottle holder" on my carry-on bag! By Michael M, Fruit Heights, UT
