Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mark Excellent product
Just bought a new place and the basement, though dry, started smelling musty. Searched a few places and compared models for quality, features, reviews, and price. This model SPT65 seemed the best overall - fewer issues and higher customer satisfaction. Got it home and started it right up. In the beginning I was emptying it out twice daily (not a problem as I go in the basement at least that much a day) but after a few days less moisture was being drawn out of the air. Now i just empty it every few days and the air doesn't smell musty at all. Love the auto-shutoff and turbo features, and it doesn't seem to pump out high volumes of hot air either. Its a solid piece of equipment.

Dehumidifier works great. Replaced an old unit with this one. Has removed a ton of moisture from the air. Maintains a comfortable temperature in our basement too. Easy setup.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shari This product does the job!
Have a high percentage of humidity in our basement. This product has many good features, but most importantly does the job to complete satisfaction. Works great and has extracted gallons of water every day. Would highly recommend it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by homedepotmaniac Quiet, but poor hose drain
I received this unit 2 weeks ago and has run smooth and relatively quiet on the normal mode. The basement is drier than before so it's doing the job. However, I wanted a dehumidifier with a continuous drain option and what this one has is inferior. You have to connect 2 flimsy plastic pieces together and thread onto the hose. The water ended up leaking and I had to take the hose off and empty by hand every 2-3 days. They should have the hose connector built into the unit as others do to avoid leaks. This will be going back for that reason alone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bugs The positive features advertised are true!
We had an old dehumidifier that was noisy, energy inefficient, and just plain ugly but did a reasonable job of dehumidifying our 1300 square foot basement for the last 10 years if you emptied the tiny water reservoir (2 quarts) every other day. When it died, we bought this new dehumidifier after carefully reading all the reviews. This unit is excellent! We simply plugged it in and within a day the basement smelled fresh and clean again. It's far more quiet than the last unit and looks nicer too. The reservoir is far larger than in the old unit so there's less maintenance issues. This unit doesn't cause the basement lights to dim when it kicks on - unlike the old unit! We highly recommend this product!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Shoreline It's a lemon
Bought this product alittle over a year ago. Worked fine up until a few weeks ago. All of a sudden it stopped taking moisture out of the air. Called the manufacture who said there was nothing they could do because it was off warrenty. Repair man came in and said the compressor was shot and would cost more than the unit to replace. Would not recommend. Barely lasted a year. Not worth the money.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HonestAbe Surprisingly Disappointing
I do not recommend this product. It worked fine out of the box (don’t most products?), but after only several months of use, it no longer removed moisture from the air due to a loss of refrigerant. SPT replaced the unit under warranty, but the same failure occurred with the second unit within several months of use. This time, SPT refused to replace the unit since it was now beyond 1 year from the original purchase date. The two units had a combined use of about 8 months (only used in the summer months). I was very surprised since the ratings for this unit on Home Depot website were so high (4.2 out of 5 stars).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TheStreakinPuertoRican Lowered the humidity but....
I'm using this dehumidifier in my basement / man cave. I does a great job of removing moisture from the air but did make the temperature in the basement increase. When the machine is running warm air blows out the top which is warming the space. It went from a cool 71 degrees to 77 sometimes 78. Being summer now I'm not too happy about the increased temps. Also it’s a little louder than I was expecting. Not loud enough to here upstairs but it definitely makes some noise. These are my only 2 complaint about this unit. Overall it does a great job of lowering the humidity. I usually empty the bucket twice a day and its pretty full.
