I went to a reptile show today and there was a display of the monsoon mist. It looks pretty good. there is no bucket or pump it looks like a humidifier that you can digitally program. Also just a thin black tubing goes up the side of enclosure. I can't compare to the mist king or any other mister I have never seen those. I liked the way it looked compact like a humidifier no buckets. Although this can only handle maybe 6 cages but i think less than that.
