I purchased unit over 2-months ago and it has been has been running flawlessly in my basement recreation/office room. Originally started using manual bucket emptying but later switched over to a drain hose into basement drain. Both worked. The unit is set to run automatically until the humidity drops to a preset level. This has also worked with NO problems. It is summer and the outside humidity is normally 80 to 90%, but is 50% in my office area thanks to the dehumidifier. This has been a great unit and I am happy that I choose it.

I purchased this dehumidifier when my wife and I moved into a 1920 house. Basement was damp and we were concerned about moisture seeping through the cement walls. It is a Michigan basement and prone to moisture seeping through. It is mid August, we've had lots of rain and so far so good. It has been keeping our basement dry for about a month and a half. Would highly recommend. You can hook a drainage hose to it and have it drain directly into a drain. First month we just emptied the bucket twice a day. It was always more than half full two times a day. Auto-shutoff works well.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by doog nice looking, relatively easy to use, inefficient
The unit is nice looking and very quiet especially with low fan setting. The controls are fairly easy and the continuous drain is good. However I'm not able to get below 60% humidity, even with constant setting and high fan. Its actually 65% or 70%, working as hard as it can, when it is humid outside. The unit is properly located in a closed 600 square foot space and I would expect to get at least 40% humidity as my other Hisense 50 pint dehumidifier gets in a similar situation. I would recommend for a very small space.

I seem to have to purchase a new dehumidifier every 3-4 years as I leave it running non-stop in my basement. My last one was an off-brand that was very loud but very effective at removing the humidity. I did research on what the best rated dehumidifiers were and the Frigidaire was at the top of the list. I really like the look of the design, the hose hookup, the buttons and it is very quiet. Sadly, it does not dehumidify very well. It cannot seem to ever get below 40%. I am hoping that it will at least last my 10 years or more.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FRMF Does what it's supposed to do
I purchased this smaller version of the 70-pint model only after the larger model broke down after just two seasons. This 50-pint model works wonderfully, as did the first model. Right now it's in my basement doing it's job well and efficiently. Frigidaire makes good dehumidifiers that are simple to operate and do an excellent job getting moisture out of the air. That's why I stuck with them even after my bad experience. I only hope I have better luck of this model lasting longer than the other.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hobbes Works great!
I bought this in late Spring of this year (2016) & I am glad I did. We have had wetter than normal Spring rains & it felt as if the house was musty a lot. The Frigidaire has done a wonderful job of removing the excess moisture from my home. The very first time I had to empty the bucket where the water collects was a real shock! It was difficult to wrap my head around the idea that all of that moisture was previously in my air, rugs, furniture, etc. The house is much more comfortable. It is easier to cool. The air conditioner doesn't seem to come on & stay on as much as it once did before I bought this unit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ednsue Quiet and effective
I finally bought this unit in May, and we were very satisfied with the effectiveness in pulling out the moisture from our home. Upstairs it gets hot and humid during the summer, and this unit does the trick when we don't want to use the AC. Our basement is damp and cool all winter, and we look forward to being able to use it there when cold weather hits - our old dehumidifier would only work above 60 degrees. This Frigidaire will work to 40 degrees. And it is quiet enough to be in the same room it is run in!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KK1987 Does a really good good
I bought this at the beginning of summer. I don't have A/C. It has been unusually hot and humid. This has made a big difference. I usually have to empty it twice a day since the tank is only 50 pints, it is easy to empty out.
