WOW! I live in an apartment in Florida that has horrible windows. I've been fighting moisture and mold for years. Currently in the middle of spring cleaning and mold removal (again), I decided I needed to do something about the constant mold and wet apartment.
I bought this unit yesterday. This morning I woke up as giddy as a child on Christmas morning; the fog outside is as thick as it comes and normally everything in the apartment would be wet and there would be thick pools of water on the window sills. Not today!!! I'm high and dry and elated with dry sills!
This is my very first dehumidifier and I wish I would have bought this years ago. It was worth every last penny! This unit changed the quality of life for me, my husband and my cat. I just can't say enough about this unit. I am so happy and I would definitely recommend this to anyone who ever asks.
With a full 24 hours of use so far, there are no negative aspects. It does not blow hot air and it works perfect. It has a fan sound which is no problem in my book. There is no need for concern about this unit. I love it!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Orchid Love it, except for one thing...
I only purchased this unit yesterday so I don't know how durable it is, but it has already removed 6 gallons of water from my house. I feel so much more comfortable already. It's easy to operate and doesn't look too obtrusive. It is extremely heavy so if you are not strong you will need help bringing it into your home. My only problem with it is that it is very loud. We have a 2-story house near the Gulf so it's very humid here. The unit is in our living room. It is as loud as the air conditioner condenser that runs outside. My husband hates it so right now we are in a heated debate....comfort or quietness? It seems we can't have both. :-(

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Paul Watch out at end of warranty...........
I purchased this product 13 months ago from Home Depot. It was used and functioned properly until fall when it was no longer needed for the season. Went to start it up again this spring and the compressor runs, but the coils never get cool. So, no dehumidifing. This was at the 12 1/2 month mark. Now out of warranty. It was used for 6 months at the most. So it cost me $265.00 to de-humidify my basement for 6 months. DO NOT BUY!

This is a very efficient unit. It is not whisper quiet but it gets the job done. I have one running in my basement nearly all year for 2 years straight. I bought another one for a bathroom with a mildew problem and now it is dry and clean.
Better than other units of I have bought and since discarded.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Buy the extended warranty!!!!!! Be warned
I purchased the GE 70 pint dehumidifier in August of 2013. It ran great for the couple of months I needed it in 2013 and it also ran well the summer of 2014. So, it was used a total of about 6-7 months. When I went to use it this year (June 2015), it no longer works. The fan blows but the compressor/dehumidifier component does not work. I ran it with no drain hose just to be sure any water would collect in the bucket and there's not one drop. I have a back up Kenmore dehumidifier and it is running after 3 years of summer use and it has full buckets so there is definitely humidity in my basement. Fortunately, when I bought the GE unit in 2013, I purchased the 3 year extended warranty through Home Depot. I contacted the Home Depot Protection Plan and they are refunding my purchase price via an e-gift card good at Home Depot. I will look at different brands when I buy a new unit. I should add that I keep my dehumidifiers stored in my heated, finished basement year-round so there is no good reason for the GE unit to not function other than poor quality. I recommend purchasing the protection plan and you should definitely look at different brands for consideration. You might also refer to a review from "Paul" as he had a similar issue.

I needed to get one right away because my old 65 pt dh quit working. I bought this GE model at the store, where there were few choices. This one is more expensive than some, but as I recall, the reviews online were pretty good, and I didn't want to spend any more time shopping.
It has been running for a couple of months now, and I am happy with it. It is very effective at keeping my 2,000 sf basement dry. 2 features I especially like are: A light comes on to tell you when to clean the filter, and the connection for the drain hose is inside above the bucket, so that if it leaks there, it drips into the bucket, not onto the floor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JimS Great 70-Pint Dehumidifier
I had another brand 70-Pint dehumidifier die on me after 12 years of use and had to replace it. I wanted to replace it with the same brand but had no luck finding that make anywhere, even online. After researching several different brands I decided to get the GE and Home Depot had it in stock at the local store. This thing is amazing!! My unfinished basement is 1150 sq ft and I went for about a week without a dehumidifier running at all. I pulled the GE out of the box, plugged it up and turned it on and it was full in less than 8 hours. The controls are easy to use and very straight forward. I have it set to 45% humidity and the unit will keep it there so long as I keep the bucket empty so it can run. I’ve read reviews where some people think this unit is loud, mine is not. I can’t hear it upstairs at all, I have to open the basement door and listen to see if it running. The old unit, I could hear it anywhere inside the house! I love the GE and hope it lasts for years to come.
