    I've had this unit about a month at my weekend home on the river. Gets quite humid inside being so close to the water. Hooked up a hose to back have it draining down my washer drain. No more musty or humid home. Humidity stays at 50% which is better than 75. Love it wish I would have gotten one years ago!!!!

    I read many reviews and many were negative, but this dehumidifier seemed the best pick. I have not been unhappy with it. It is in a large open basement and has performed quietly and efficiently. Because of the bad reviews on durability, I took out a four year protection plan.

    We had one of the dehumidifiers that was recalled due to a fire hazard...YIKES! I was surprised that I didn't recognize most manufacturers once I started researching my options. Frigidaire was one I did and after some research (including Consumer Reports), I felt comfortable buying this unit. Hopefully, it will last many years.

    i have owned this for 2 months running in a 2 car attached garage. it does a good job of keeping humidity levels under control in a humid climate. good capacity, it is much quieter than an older dehumidifier that i have.

    We are emptying about a gallon and a half in 24 hrs. It is quiet. Humidity has lowered from 60%+ to around 32% with the door open to other areas of the house which are also high humidity. We would recommend this dehumidifier. Sonny, Pine, CO We really like Best Buy's option to pay off in 6 months interest free.

    Have used this 3-4 weeks now. Our old unit was not working properly and our basement was smelling like mildew and had signs of mildew. The smell decreased after a week or so. I was emptying the tank every 4-6 hours at first couple of days (mainly curious as to how much would accumulate), then hooked up a hose to for constant drainage.

    Great addition to A/C to remove humidity

    When my place smelled musty and still felt sticky even with the A/C on a low temp, I purchased this to see if it would help. No more musty smell and stickiness, and I was amazed at how much water it drew out of the air!

    I’ve owned several dehumidifiers over 25 years and this unit is the quietest. As far as capability I have to empty the bucket twice a day. All my previous units were 70 pints as is this one but one emptying was sufficient for all my previous dehumidifiers.

    Working excellent at the moment. I use the dehumidifier about 4 maybe 5 months out of the year. I've purchased GE's and LG's in the past and they seem to work fine for 2 yrs and then die. Absolute junk quality. I'm hoping this Frigidaire doesn't have the 2 yr obsolescence built in. So far I'm very pleased!!!

    Have used it for a couple of weeks now. Have it connected directly to a drain. Using it on a BIG room and its still doing a good job in maintaining the humidity at a normal level that would result in condensation of the cold air intake of the HVAC. Very happy with product and hope it continues to deliver.

    Great Dehumidifier for basement

    We have had this dehumidifier for a year now, and we still love. It really took the musty wet smell out of our basement. it is pretty quite, I can hear it running while in the basement, but once upstairs I no longer notice it running. My only complaint is the dump bucket can be a little cumbersome to get out and in.

    This dehumidifier really works well. In the past I have needed 2 to clear out the humidity in my large basement but this one has done the trick by itself. I have had an issue with a button that doesn't seem to want to work but I'm hoping to resolve that issue by actually reading the manual this time.

    I bought this as a replacement after the large recall of other products last year. Was a little worried about fire hazards that we heard about in the recall of last year for other brands (most of other brands). I am happy with my choice it works well, does not get that hot during. and covers a large area with noticeable difference.

    I did a lot of research on dehumidifiers prior to this purchase due to previous experience with another brand. This product has exceeded expectations. Very easy to set up and works great. Much quieter than last kenmore unit that I owned and from all other reviews that I read it should last much longer.

    We just built a new house and the basement has been continually damp. We bought this and it's been working overtime to dry up the place. We empty it twice a day right now, but the basement is completely dry and it was WET! We are extremely pleased with this dehumidifier. It has exceeded our expectations!

    I am happy with this dehumidifier. Set up was easy. It connects to a hose which drains into my sump for convenience. It is quiet, not silent, but quiet. Noise was a big problem with my last dehumidifier and we don't even notice that this one is running.

    Large capacity water bucket with easy access for dumping. When bucket is filled, dehumidifier shuts down. Intake and outtake vents on front and top of unit ... works better in tight aisles in basement storage. Reasonably quiet. Product review on line listed it as #2 best from several years ago.

    Have had a few dehumidifiers in the past and this one so far is the quietest. Have only had a few months. Praying it lasts longer than other brands. Don't hear the plastic components rattle while running like other brands. Read great reviews prior to my purchase and it listed in the top five.

    We've had a number of brands of dehumidifiers over the years, and they tend to not last very long. The Frigedaire has a larger capacity than we've used in the past, and the motor is much quieter - it purrs. It does an excellent job of getting the water out of the air without being noisy.
