Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marty Two thumbs up.
Pictured here, nestled in amongst our important electrical equipment, this dehumidifier quietly removes moisture and odor. It was not capable of handling the flood resulting from a major plumbing rupture, however, it does an excellent job of keeping our 48 units' equipment (surveillance server, television system, motel style phone system, internet w/wifi) free of malfunctions due to moisture. As a preventative maintenance measure I would highly recommend this small, yet efficient, device that silently protects thousands of dollars worth of our equipment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TANGO Great performance in a small package
I bought it for use in my garage and it has done a great job for the last two weeks. I live in southern Alabama and I have asthma. When I would work on projects (before i bought this dehumidifier) I could not stay in the garage for more than 1 or 2 hours. without having breathing problems and perspiring heavily. Things are much, much better now. Although this unit is not recommended for such a large space, it performs very well even on the muggiest of days. I have used compressor-based dehumidifiers in the past but they boosted the garage temperature by 10 or 15 degrees--this is better solution.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by beevuebill Good for light duty performance
Unit has been in operation for a few weeks and have emptied canister twice, I keep a humidity meter in the same room (16x20 little used basement bedroom) to note changes in humidity. I believe this unit would be more effective in a smaller space, however; it will serve my goal of keeping the humidity low enough to avoid mold/mildew growth. I also believe a setting to control desired humidity level,or, a switch for on/off operation periods versus 'always on' would be helpful. In the final analysis, it is adequate for my purposes, operates quietly and was very affordable .

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by doublenickels not durable; bought two, returned two
I loved this product's concept: small & with a germ/bacteria-killing feature, but unfortunately they aren't built to last. The first one I ordered, the UV light didn't work right out of the box, so I returned it and ordered another one. The second one ran for 5 days and then the power/motor stopped working and so that one was returned too. This company states no refunds, but they'll be happy to make free repairs during the 1st year. Making a product this disposable is shameful because it's going to end up in a landfill in no time flat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bonabob Really works
I needed something for our motorhome which is kept in Naples Fl. We spend two weekends a month and in this heat and High humidity, those chemical products will not work. The best feature is that I attach the included tube and direct it into the kitchen sink and just turn the machine on when I leave. Two weeks later, I go into a dry motorhome which I know will not be exposed to any mold or mildew. It uses very little electricity and just takes a few minutes for the air conditioner to make it very comfortable after we arrive.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kodo This unit meets expectations.
We have had above average rainfall this year and for the first time the since the house was built the basement bedroom (12 x 10) felt damp. After some online searching, I decided to try the SPT 1.37-Pint Mini Thermo-Electric Dehumidifier as it is being used in a bedroom. The operating sound of the fan is not objectionable and after running for two days, the bedroom no longer feels damp. Only time will tell how durable the unit is but for now I feel it has been a worthwhile purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mary1 Great product
I have been trying for years to find a way to cut the mildew and odor from my garage. I have tried numerous products but nothing worked. I have only owned the product for 3 days and it has already done more to correct the problem than everything else I have done combined. (including several items I purchased at Home Depot).
I heartily recommend this product and plan on getting one for the laundry room and the storage room as well as for every bathroom in the house

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Charlie Good value - Works great!
It's easy to move around to different rooms. I empty the canister instead of using the drain hose and it is a snap to take out, empty and replace.
I like the UV light because I empty it every few days and have not had any mold in Florida. It might be a little noisy for some, about the same as a tower fan - it's perfect grey background noise for me. It runs continually and I've been very pleased with the performance of this mini-portable dehumidifier.
