Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BuddysPal This One is Fine.
A couple of missed features I like.
Upon a power failure, it comes back to life in the prior settings. The HD Associate and I discovered together that it has auto-resume on power failure. That ought to be on the box or listed in the feature set.
Overall power draw seems less than the 5 year old LG that it replaced, probably because it is clean. It has a clean filter feature, but i haven't looked at the manual (LOL) for that.
Its in a pump house, so a little noise isn't a problem, but on high, the blower rush is noticeable. You'l know when its NOT working for sure. At medium speed, one could watch TV OK. The compressor noise is equivalent to a mid size fridge, which of course it is. The hose connection has a door that I could do without, and the hose connection was tight to fit in. Be aware that only a thin hose washer could be used. Their Hose Kit might be more accommodating. Best part, it easily keeps the 350 SF pump house dry.

Problem is I cannot recommend any Energy Star appliance; none last 1/4 the time a comparable old unit will last. Eighteen months is about the limit of what dehumidifiers last, so compared to new units the GE is fair. We've had three quit on us... but our 40 year old Fedders is still removing 28 pints of air per day from our basement. Buy the cheapest unit you can find and get an extended warranty; when it quits, pay for the pro-rate, or whatever gimmick they use to try to get out of just giving you a replacement. Change to a different store if you are not satisfied. It is like 'lifetime' car brakes; you get one replacement. We have five Whirlpool 40 pint units that we bought used for $20 to $30. Only one quit, and it was 28 years old. We replaced it with another used Whirlpool 40 pint for $40. Those I recommend... unless they have an Energy Star sticker on them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VermontGraybeard Works great, easy to set up.
This dehumidifier works great, seems to put out less heat than units we've had previously. Easy to set up with a hose for continuous draining. Humidity in our basement in August went from 70% down to 50% in about 2 days, then to 45% and the air smells cleaner.
If it continues to work this well for years, it will be a good investment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by yeltran Great dehumidifier and meets my needs
We desperately needed something to pull the moisture from our basement and garage, especially once we had to wait nearly 2 weeks to have our AC unit repaired during one of the most humid times of the year. Things were getting musty and the carpet was starting to feel moist. Within 24 hours of having the dehumidifier on, the musty smell was much less noticeable and the carpet felt dry again. We emptied out the water bucket numerous times in the beginning, but now we empty it out 2-3 times a day depending on how humid it is. The unit is also fairly quiet compared to dehumidifiers I have had in the past and Energy Star rated, which is a plus. I like how easy it is to operate and that it can easily be rolled around.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Abuladeen Hidden timer to self-destruct just after warranty ends?
Seemed to work fine for a little over a year, then the condenser died and no more dehumidification, just a big expensive useless fan. To judge from reviews I've read at various websites, I'm not the only purchaser to have this device fail within weeks after the one-year warranty expiration. That leaves the durability of this product in serious doubt. If you have to pay $200 every year or two for a new one, that gets to be some pretty expensive dehumidification over the long haul.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by wsch292 ehh...
Let me start by saying that in about 2 hours i had about a gallon of water that had already been collected fresh out if the box, so on that side it works great. However, it is brand new and it is supposed to have 3 fan settings. The high and low work great. The medium speed doesnt work at all, so we are exchanging it for another. Hopefully that is not a sign of whats to come. I dont think it should have this problem being brnad new, but we will give it another shot. Ill update later.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OldScallyWaggs large room dehumidifier
Customer service provided some personal thoughts on settings. When unit was turned on it defaulted to the settings suggested. Very impressed with the packaging. Unit is too heavy to lift out of box, but once the strapping is cut, the sides and base of the carton separate. Lift the carton and "voilà" the dehumidifier is sitting there, ready to be moved into position. Excellent packaging.
