    Most reliable unit I got so far

    In the last 20 years, I purchased 4 Kenmore, 4 Frigidaire, and one Honeywell dehumidifiers. The Kenmore ones lasted over 2 years or so. The Frigidaire lasted over a year (few months after the manufacture warranties expired). The Honeywell (70-Pint) proved to be the most reliable I had. It's been working for me in last 3+ years. It sucks the moisture out of my basement real quick. The reason I didn't give it a 5-star review is the noise level. It's higher than the other models. Also it doesn't have the auto defrost feature. However, I'm planning to buy another Honeywell unit (50-Pint) for my bathroom based on the reliability of the one I have now. Why would I spent $200.00 plus for a unit that only lasts for little over a year?

    Researched many dehumidifiers before purchasing the Honeywell product. Honeywell had the most consistent positive feedback. I've been using for a few months now in the basement and it works great. I'm using the dehumidifier's external drain into a condensate pump, so no bucket dumping. Keeps basement at 50% humidity level and the musty smell is gone.

    I bought this model to replace older one it's great to have the gauges up top so you can actually see the humidity in the room the only thing I don't like is that the warning light to show that it's full is straight up you can't see it from a distance other than that it's been a great dehumidifier it's quiet efficient and doesn't take much room..

    Received directly from manufacturer a non working item. Could tell it was a used/returned dehumidifier and clearly not even checked as it did not work at all. Took it to best buy within 5 days. Exchanged it for a frigidaire much better looking and working unit. Honeywell farewell, never again.. Box arrived very damaged as well

    We have had the unit for 2 days. So far so good. I will update this review in a year. The unit is well built and quiet, it removes moisture quickly. I am impressed so far. I can tell you it is a nicer unit than the Frigidare unit I replaced after it quit working in 7 months.

    BETTER THAN LAST HUMIDIFIER

    Honeywell replaced a Frigidaire that stopped removing water. This is a much better design than the 6 year old Frigidaire. Filter is easier to clean and the hose attachment for direct draining is in a much better place. So far so good with this product.

    Bought/replaced dehumidifiers almost every other two years. First time Buying Honeywell dehumidifier. Overall performance excellent. Trusted brand. Hope it will last as long as our Honeywell air cleaner I bought since 1999, its condition and performance still excellent.

    In the first 4 hours the dehumidifier had over 3" of water in the bin & dropped the humidity from 72% to 55%. Am very pleased so far with this product. Noise level is no louder than a stand fan.

    This dehumidifier is very quiet when running. Only downside is the collection bucket is smaller than my prior dehumidifier, requiring the bucket to be emptied more often.

    I like the temp. and timer feature, does a good job of eliminating moisture from the basement. Putting the drip pan back in after emptying is a struggle.

    This seems to be a great dehumidifier. It moves more air than previous units so ot should do a better job of keeping our basement dry.
