    This model had great reviews on many sites. It is doing a great job since I have owned it. I have seen recommendation to use a surge protector on dehumidifiers. I contacted Electrolux asking them if one is required. The instruction book didn't mention anything about one. I did not hear back for quite a few days so I went back to BestBuy and asked them. They told me not to use a surge protector and talked to me at great length about appliance questions. Electrolux emailed me a few days later with the same answer.

    Quieter than previous dehumidifiers I have owned. The reservoir is easy to remove and empty. I researched all dehumidifiers on the market and felt Frigidare was the best. This dehumidfier was not a stocked item at any store I contacted.I chose Best Buy because of the great service I get and was able to use gift cards I purchased locally towards reducing my gasoline costs. My dehumidifier showed up at my Best Buy store sooner than the orginial delivery date. Very pleased!

    I purchased this unit around a month ago, and so far so good. I did check out various product reviews before purchasing. I believe that this is an older model; because, it discharges air out the top versus the new model which discharges out one side. I have the side discharge model also, but this unit is being used in a situation where a side discharge will not work as well. My previous Frigidaire 70 pint sucks moisture out of the air big time, hence the decision to purchase another.

    I love this dehumidifier! It really pulls the moisture out of our basement; it’s pretty quiet; collects a decent amount of water; the handles on the water bucket make it easy to empty; and I bought it for less than the current model because it’s the previous 70pt model. Can’t think of any negatives.

    I chose this prior year model over the updated FFAD7033R1 model primarily because of the garden hose connection on this model (FAD704DWD). My old LG dehumidifier would not drain properly because of the kind of connection employed in the FFAD7033R1 model and would fill up the bucket every day! I hooked up the FAD704DWD last week - within 3 days the humidity level in my basement was down to 35% and not a single drop in the bucket! Very happy with my purchase!

    Let’s be real. The life expectancy of a dehumidifier these days is not long. There are probably spiders living in my house older than my last dehumidifier. But it worked great for three solid years and kinda sorta worked for awhile after that until I bought a new one. So I bought the same exact one, but with a longer warranty this time!

    I bought this dehumidified to replace an older noisy unit. Not only was it much quieter, but in the same 2-3 hours it removed more than 3 times as much water from the air! Helpful features include a timer, a humidity set point, a connection on the back to attach a hose (so you don't have to keep emptying the tank), and a little red ball in the tank that makes it easy to see when the tank needs to be emptied. Hopefully this will last for many years bit so far this model gets high marks.

    I purchased this Frigidaire FAD704DWD dehumidifier based on other reviews and I'm very happy with it. I run it on the continuous mode and I empty it every 2-3 days. This unit is quieter than others that I've owned, and produces a friendly "reminder to empty" series of beeps when it shuts off due to being full. I have a dry basement again!

    Damp Basement Fix

    Purchased this unit from Best Buy with extended warranty after reviewing other units. Damp basement, but no drain. Unit works great, but the water tank fills up overnight and at this time needs to be emptied daily by the kids. No sink or drain in basement, so I am still looking for a way to use the hose drain. Otherwise, everything works great. Reviews seem to indicate use eventually leads to failure before the year, so I purchased the extended warranty just in case.

      Hi TravelerofNJ, glad to hear that your new dehumidifier is working well for you. Hopefully you are able to figure out something for the continues drain. Here is to a dry basement! Kindly, Jennifer Frigidaire

    i am using this in a 1300sqft unfinished basement. definitely doing it's job since i was emptying the bucket everyday. i now have a hose connected to the back and continuously draining. i suggest this if you have the option. hose connection is on back & super easy to connect to. i cut the unit off for a few hours the other day to move some things around and definitely noticed a huge difference when it was not running. setup, instructions, cleaning, etc. are all super easy to understand.

    Great & Easy Product

    The product was set up and running within a short time frame. I had to replace my former dehumidifier that was recalled. That was a Frigidaire as well. The swap out was easy and clean. To all dehumidifier users be sure to vacuum the filters periodically and I found mineral build in the drain hose near the dehumidifier. That should be cleaned periodically as well. The true test will be longevity with this unit which can not be measured at this time.

    A good unit for busy people

    This unit is keeping the 1500 sq foot basement comfortably dry on "low" fan setting, runs quietly and requires no attention other than to clean its filter. Setup was unpack, plug in, and turn it on. You will need a hose for draining if you don't use the built-in bucket. I used the hose off of the 2-year old unit being replaced (offshore brand). I wish the new dehumidifiers processed air horizontally like the old-time units did (just my preference).

    My dehumidifier runs well and takes out the humidity in my unfinished basement. I have it directly draining into a drain which makes it more convenient to use. I have only one complaint and that is not about the machine itself but about the delivery. It was delivered with a hole in the box and that part of the dehumidifier is scratched but since it was going into a basement, I did not really care but...not so nice on a new machine.

    EXCELLENT DEHUMIDIFIER

    Frigidaire is a solid brand. Works really well to keep basement dry. I would recommend the model with the pump for about $50 more. I have to empty it everyday. But it shows you how well it works. I can raise it up on a table and connect a drain hose. But the built in pump would have been more convenient.

    really pulls the water out of the air

    We have a new home that we've been in for 5 years. We have always run a dehumidifier in the basement. This new dehumidifier pulls so much moisture out of the air that we have been emptying it twice a day. Our old one certainly wasn't working very well. We were only emptying it once a week. We can't wait for the humidity to be at 50% so we don't have to empty it as often. ( We can't use the drain hose, so we have to empty it.)

    Effective but a little loud

    This replaced an older unit. The amount of water it is removing is truly impressive. I am emptying the bucket once every day or so. Only negatives are the noise and bucket size. It is louder than expected, even on the low fan speed. Not a deal breaker by any means. I will take the noise for how well it works. The bucket is smallish. Also, the top is almost completely covered, so cleaning it is difficult.

    Bought this unit a month ago based on high recommendation from CR and found lowest price at Best Buy. I can simply say that it has been doing a great job of reducing the humidity in our very large unfinished basement. The unit is not as quiet as I was expecting based on reviews, but it is not loud either. Would recommend to anyone!

    Purchased as a replacement to an old Frigidaire Dehumidifier that I had for 10+ years and hope this one will last just as long. This one seems lighter and not as high quality but I have been using for a month and I'm very pleased. Works great! Easy to use settings and no issues thus far. I would recommend over other brands currently on the market that tend to die after one year.

    I have this unit in my basement with a hose emptying it directly down a drain. It's been running continuously for a couple of years, and I've never had a problem with it. I can't really speak for the noise level as it's in the basement and it does't bother me, but when I'm down there I don't really notice it being loud.

    I am so glad we finally broke down and purchased a dehumidifier. After reading a lot of information on them I knew I wanted a Frigidaire. I looked at all the specs and really like that this unit has a removable/cleanable filter. We are emptying the bucket 2-3 times a day right now, I can't wait until we get our drain put in and can just run it that way.
