    This product has a digital humidity setting, yet even when the setting number is achieved, it still runs. Aldo, this product is fairly noisy. When it does shut off, there is quite a clunk sound.

    We bought this humidifier as we were seeing condensate on our upstairs windows. The unit works well and took care of the issue. The area is around 1200 sq feet. The unit is a bit loud even in low setting and can't be used in a bedroom. Overall we are pleased with the performance

    works great. Reduced humidity in short period of time. Fan is a little loud even on low setting. But probably bought bigger unit than I need for the space. Really not a problem since unit is in the basement.

    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.

    I own a ranch home and have this is the kitchen/ dining area.This product has been reliable and efficient. My only objection is it can be noisy when operating.

    Easy to use and transport around the office, the office is vey dry and has a nice aroma to it. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it tends to be very noisy, can't keep it on when I'm in he office.

    I've 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.

    The sehumidifier seems okay so far. It has removed a lot of moisture from my basement. The machine is a bit loud but seems to be working.

    I have been thru so many dehumidifiers trying to keep my basement dry and all of them went belly up, were noisy, and never worked well. This product works remarkably well. My basement has never been this dry. I highly recommend.

    Really pulls the humidity from the cellar

    I needed a new dehumidifier after my year old one was recalled. This does a very good job at pulling the humidity out of the air but it fills up the small reservoir bucket in about 1 1/2 days. The noise is a little loud, being that it's in a finished basement. Overall, this is a good product that does it's job well!

    The unit does it's job well. Humidity control is good. It is a bit noisy. The clean filter light comes on quickly even though the filter is perfectly forclean. Not a significant problem though.

    Only had 3 days. So far, so good. Performs as l had hoped. Definitely takes moisture out of area used in, but is pretty loud as l had expected. Waiting and worrying about electricity consumption, although l know removing this moisture does come at a cost. I,m just wondering though why specs for all dehumidifiers list water removed per day is 1\2 amount of what's advertised on box. 70 pint deh removes only 35 pints per day. Like, what's up with that?

    The dehumidifier that surpasses all reviews!

    I read many reviews before I purchased the Frigidair dehumidifier. I'm a bit skeptical of reviews, because I'm a very harsh critic. I expect the absolute best, when a review states that the product is the BEST available. I was not let down. The Frigidair dehumidifier is everything the reviews said and more! It does a great job extracting the humidity from the air. It has a display that gauges the humidity of the room. Set it for the desired humidity of the room and walk away. Much to my surprise it quickly reached the percentage of humidity I set it for. The Frigidair runs until it reaches the set humidity and shuts off. I don't have a hose attached to it yet, so when it reached capacity it automatically shut off. There is a large catch tray, that's more like a drawer and it holds every bit of what it is rated. When I went to empty it I was shocked at how heavy it was, but that's my fault, I didn't do the math before I emptied it. So I don't allow it to reach full capacity anymore. There is a clear window with a red float on the front of the catch tray, allowing you to see how much water is in there before you empty it. The Frigidair dehumidifier is louder than reported in the reviews, but it is located in an all but empty basement, nothing to absorb the sound. I hoped it would make a difference in the smell and air quality and again the Frigidair surpassed any expectations. There is absolutely no musty smell, not a hint! This dehumidifier allows you store any material item, from clothes to furniture without worrying that they will stink when you want to use them. Worth every penny!!

    TYPICAL DEHUMIDIFIER AT THIS PRICE POINT

    So Far, So Good. I've owned this for approximately 2 months and have used it once every few days, running it till the bucket became full. I use it in a finished basement that also has an A/C unit so I'ven't needed to rely only on this unit. It has done it's job as would be expected. I find it noisy, even on low, but seems to be just as noisy as other units I've owned. I do have to say that this is by far the best looking dehumidifier I've seen. A much more modern take on your "Dad's old dehumidifier". I agree 100 percent that you MUST purchase an extended warranty. The previous dehumidifier I purchased (GE from a big-box store) at around the same price point died on me after 2 years. I had not purchased an extended warranty so I lost out. I do tend to move the unit around from room to room in the basement, and I also store it when the weather allows. Not sure if this makes a difference or not. I am on my second unit as the first one I purchased, and had shipped to the store, was damaged. The top of the basket was cracked. Had the warranty so it wasn't a problem. Geeks had to order me a new one, took about a week, since they had none in the store. Overall this seems to be a good unit and seems to be functioning well. Also keep in mind that while 46 pounds doesn't seem too bad its in an awkward shape. It comes in a large box and most of the weight is toward the bottom where the compressor is and you don't want to bang it around (like going up stairs) as you could damage it. I do believe the warranty is very important and will most likely be purchasing warranties from now on whenever I purchase electronics. Seems like times are changing and things are being produced at a high volume, at a high rate, and as cheaply as possible. You may want to check your unit thoroughly before leaving the store as it's rather heavy and a pain to lug back and forth if need be. BESTBUY was great when I informed them of the damage. They saw I had purchased the warranty and asked me what I would like to do. Even offering to replace the unit with something they had available in stock.
