Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Unit failed within 1.5 years
I purchased this GE unit in June of 2014 to replace an existing unit in my basement. It ran fine for about a year and then last fall (fall of 2015) I found the humidity level rising in my basement and the water was not collecting at the same rate as previously. During the winter the unit rarely runs but this spring (2016) it complete stopped working. I submitted a complaint to GE Appliances but they basically told me it was out of warranty so nothing was done for me.
Although the unit only costs $200 I do expect it to last more that 1.5 years. I realize failures do occur but the manufacturer's lack interest in the product quality issue I experienced certainly means I will be buying the new unit from another manufacturer .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KK Dry Basement!
This is exactly what we needed. We have an unfinished basement and bought this dehumidifier to eliminate the moisture in the basement. We can definitely tell a difference! The Dehumidifier was easy to set up and get started. We did need to buy a hose for drainage, which we had not anticipated (but this it the first time we have ever owned a dehumidifier). There is a filter that needs to be cleaned about twice a month, but its easy to get in and out and simply wash, dry, and replace. We have only had the Dehumidifier for about 2 months, so I cannot comments of the longevity of the product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kamau1906 Great Product
I just recently bought this dehumidifier and it is a very quality product. I was a little hesitant at first because of some of the negative reviews. I would say the best thing to do is to read the 2 to 3 page operation manual and you should not experience any issues. The thing that may trip up most people is that there is a small foam piece in the bucket assembly that looks like it is packaging but is part of the system that causes the bucket not to overflow. DO NOT Throw this piece away.
It is fairly quiet running at high speed and looks to be built with quality.
Overall I am very satisfied with the product and how much it has removed moisture in my home and basement.

The automatic defrost is great. This is the first unit that I have owned that had this feature.
It has run continuously since purchase without any problems.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by NewhomeownerT Did not read right humidity
I bought this dehumidifier for my basement based on the reviews. Unfortunately my experience was not so good. This dehumidifier did not read the right humidity, in fact it read a high humidity and was constantly on. I bought a Frigidaire dehumidifier which actually read the right temperature. I know this because I have a separate thermostat I was comparing the 2 humidifiers against. I rated it fair because it did work and dehumidified the air, just it was on and never turned off because it could never reach a lower humidity.
