I use this dehumidifier in the garage, where I do my woodworking. With both doors to the garage closed, this item's readout shows 10% - 15% relative humidity lower than the room humidity. I have an accurate analog hygrometer (with %relative humidity) in the garage. The two are always 10% - 15% apart, with the dehumidifier reading less than the hygrometer.
The included hose attachment is difficult to insert in the unit. The attachment is supposed to go through a hole in the back, and surround a shaft on the inside of the unit (in the lower compartment where the bucket is). The unit shaft and the hose shaft are the same size, making it difficult to slide the semi-soft hose plastic over the hard unit plastic. Much of it has to be pushed, almost forced in - and even then, does not go in all the way.
Otherwise, this unit does what I need it to do. At least in the Florida winter (it's January now). As long as the humidity in the garage is 50% - 65% while I'm working, and the paint is drying, I'll keep this unit. (I'm working on a chess/checkers/backgammon set, and need to paint the chess pieces at the moment - and paint/stain the rest of the project when needed. Plus, other planned projects. So I'll need to keep the humidity within an acceptable range.)

I have quite a bit of moisture in my shop. This product has been working nonstop to dry out the interior, and seems to be doing a great job.

So far has been working beautifully. Had a little bit of an issue with setup (my fault) and had to call customer service, and they were fantastic over the phone. This has been exactly what we were looking for.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NickTahoe Awesome Dehumidifier
I purchased two of these for my two un-air conditioned garages in Galveston, TX. I had a bad mold problem in my garages and nothing would ever dry out after fishing, etc. I plumbed them through the walls with PVC fittings and they run 24/7. It can be 85% humidity outside, and I open the doors to the garage and it will be 40% inside. They have been going for about four months, the mold is all dead and the garages have lost that musty odor. Boat ropes, life jackets and all other boat items are now stored in the garages and are mold free. One dehumidifier also controls the area inside my downstairs wet bar. I have a 80 lb. stainless steel ice machine, large stainless steel beverage box and two head frozen drink machine which do not sweat anymore! My neighbors are getting them as well - awesome product!!

I bought two of these units and was very happy with them until they both failed. I liked the position of the air filter which made it easy to remove and clean. The unit was relatively quiet as dehumidifiers go and certainly did a great job. Unfortunately the first one failed after 8 months. It lost its refrigerant and stopped working. The second unit failed after 11 months and began freezing up then it too lost its refrigerant. I received a full refund for the first one and I've submitted the paperwork along with cutting off the electrical cord and sending it in to get a refund on the second one. The company informed me that they no longer manufacture this unit. I think I can guess why!
I've had such poor luck with dehumidifiers over the past several years. Is it really that hard to design and build one that lasts more than a year?

have the 70 gal keystone humidifier. It gets a error reading on the display. Book says take to service organization. the problem starts there. web site for Keystone says see home depot or lowes. went to both neither have anyone that sdervices that unit. best advice was to toss and buy a new one.

The reservoir is a little smaller than on previous dehumidifiers, but it's nothing major. It's a little easier to dump when it is full.
