    I had been looking at a few options and the rating on this product made me take interest. I really didn’t want to spend more than $200 so I had been watching and hoping for a sale. This model came up on the “deal of the day” and I jumped on it. I’m very happy with my purchase so far! This model does have wheels for easy mobility around the house. I really like knowing how humid my house is with the indicator on the top panel. I haven’t used any of the timed features. I normally turn it on at night and it’s full in the morning. I live by the ocean where it is extremely humid so having a good dehumidifier is a must.

    Purchased as a deal of the day. Been running it daily for a month and it works great. Nice stylish design. My only regret is that I didn’t purchased two.

    Pros mentioned:
    Ease of use, Water collection

    I am renting a small farm house and it is really musty smelling. The basement leaks every single time it rains. I bought two of these two use in this house on opposite sides of the house. Both of these machines really pull out the moisture. If I put them on continuous I have to empty the 50 pint bins several times a day. I have now changed to 50% moisture as I have turned on the heat, which is a monitor heater. I figure the heater will help with the moisture problem also. That way I don't have to empty the machines as much either. They both are very good! I have no complaints at all. There is a place in the back to put a hose for emptying into a drain or bucket, but I haven't done that. The front bin pulls out and has a very strong handle to carry it to the sink and empty it out. I just slide the bin back in and gently hit it to make sure it's secured in the machine. Then, it comes back on and starts automatically when the bin is reinserted. It is very easy to operate. I highly recommend it.

    Bought this December 2020 but it didn't get much use until a rainy spring. So now I can write the review about it. Compared to other dehumidifiers I have used over the years this one is the quietest. Not saying it's the quietest one out there but better than what I have dealt with in the past 30+ years. I use it mostly in the garage section of my basement that isn't air conditioned. Keep in mind that a dehumidifier is basically an air conditioner on wheels. That is it has a compressor to pump refrigerant, evaporator coil that gets cold to condense the moisture in the air on it, like a cold glass sweating outside in a southern summer and a condenser that gets hot. The heat goes from the evaporator to the condenser via the compressor and refrigerant to put it in simple terms. After the moist air goes over the cold evaporator it's cooled. It then passes over the hot condenser to warm it back up. The air coming out will always be a little warmer than the air going in. Just the nature of process. It's pretty easy to unpack, hook up and use. It rolls easily too. I really like the way the bucket comes out and the handle feels good in the hand. The bucket holds about one and two thirds gallons of water which means it's not too heavy to handle. It slips in and out easily which means no spillage unless you are just rough and careless when removing it. The controls are well placed and easy to use. It reads out the humidity when running after you set the desired humidity. The reading is very accurate as I have a uHoo air monitor and the readings match within 3% or less. One thing to make a reminder to do is put some bleach in the water bucket every month or so. Or anytime you notice mold or black starting to grow in it. Clean it up if necessary first. If you have water and heat and air your will have fungus grow. Period! I'm an HVAC/R contractor and I speak from experience. Conclusion is that it does what it's supposed to do and so far it has done that very well. As for the life of the product before it will need replaced, I cannot answer but generally dehumidifiers last a long time as far the compressor and sealed system in general goes. As for the electronic controls I would guess the some nowadays. I have noticed that pretty much all dehumidifiers look a lot alike. All made by the same company maybe? Very possible. Not uncommon nowadays.

    Instead of moving our existing dehumidifier to the new house (it's more than ten years old, but still running strong), I figured I'd take a shot at a new Energy Star rated one to see if there's any real improvement - and there's no comparison. The Insignia fills crazy fast compared to our existing dehumidifier - who knows how much electricity I've been wasting limping that old one along over the years. The drain hose is a standard garden hose attachment, which works brilliantly to keep from ever having to empty it. I'm not sure who actually manufactures them, but I've been having great luck with Insignia appliances so far.

    This is a great efficient unit. It replaced a much older one which I use in my cellar from May through September when it is damp. At first I had it set at a constant ON setting but found it was running around the clock to eliminate every once of moisture....not necessary to have a cellar that dry. Correct setting is to have it set at 55 humidity. It turns on an off by iteself.

    Bigger than we needed but works amazing! We live near the ocean and it the humidity is 100% sometimes, making our houze reach to 70% at nights. This de humidifier helps us bring out room down to 50-60%. Which is an okay level by us to sleep with. It has a little noise but nothing to crazy. It does push out heat and heats up the house but its now more of a dry heat than a sticky heat so we dont mind that.

    This is a great item IF you want it constantly running to keep the level EXACTLY where you set it, but this is not what I wanted. It's extremely frustrating the way this thing works. Let's say the humidity is at 65% and I set the machine to 50%. Well, what I want is for the machine to turn on, once it hits 50% or even slightly lower, turn off. What happens instead is that it turns on, drops down to around 45% (blows warm air to do this), then it will start blowing cold air to raise it back to 50%, soon as it rises it repeats and runs forever. I don't want ANY cold air blowing EVER and it's ridiculous there is no sort of setting to make it ONLY run when the humidity is too high. I don't want the stupid thing running pretty much all the time. It doesn't need to make up for going a little low. I live in an extremely humid area and it will naturally rise on it's own. It's so weird because it always overshoots the setting. Will go under then blow cold air to raise it back, then it goes over and has to blow warm air again to lower it. It would be perfect if there was any sort of way to make it never blow out cold air. I have to constantly turn it on / off which is beyond frustrating. If there was more control over the settings this thing would be perfect. Would be great to just say "only blow cold or only hot" as well as some sort of auto setting. I wish there was a lower fan setting, it's insanely loud. It's SO loud that you can't put it in a bedroom or anywhere near people, it's really that loud and pretty much never shuts off due to the auto correcting of the humidity. I have it in the bedroom for now and it literally never turns off because of the stupid auto correction. Only reason for 3 stars is that when you manually control it, it's actually a decent piece of hardware. It's a shame you can't turn either setting on or off then it could double as a mini air conditioner or heater. Heat the room when lower humidity, cool it when raising and it does a good job of heating / cooling, but you have to rely on the humidity of the room to determine if you get the heater or cooler vs just being able to turn on what you specifically want.

    I spent several weeks reading reviews and performing my own research on which brand of dehumidifier and what size before finally choosing this Insignia 50 pint. It has worked very well so far (we've only had it about 4-5 weeks) to pull a lot of moisture out of our master bathroom where we've had some mild surface mold issues. Here's hoping this will solve that for us.

    This is a nice dehumidifier. It replaced an old one I've had for 10 years that finally quit. This one is a little noisier than the old one but it really sucks the water. It fills up a lot faster than my old one. That's a good thing because it doesn't run as much.

    Very easy to setup. Gets rid of excess humidity in our bathroom effectively. Also removes the musty odor of the house from too much humidity. But be careful not to remove too much humidity from your house because the air gets too dry leaving you with dry skin and dry throat, and it becomes harder to breathe too with very dry air in the house. A little on the loud side and may wake you up everytime it turns on (when it is set on the auto mode). Easy to empty water reservoir. High quality build.

    I recently had an issue with mold due to the humidity in my home and had a remediation removal to clear the problem. I was recommended to try a dehumidifier and after an extensive research decided on this unit. I have to say this humidifier makes a huge difference. When first set up I had to empty the tank about 3 to 4 times in 1 day (that should give you an idea of how high the humidity was in my house) I actually felt the difference from the first day I started running it. I highly recommend this unit. If you are considering it don’t hesitate it is worth the investment. 5 ⭐️‘S

    Works well and keeps our room dry. After emptying the bucket, it takes some effort to get it back into the unit straight, though. My old dehumidifier had good rails, so I could slide the bucket in with one hand. This one takes two hands to make it go in evenly.

    Been using it for a month and so far so good. The dehumidifier works well. This unit seems to pull the moisture out faster and rolls a lot easier than the old dehumidifier we had in our basement (and it was only 4 or 5 years old). Got it on the deal of the day for $149 am very pleased.

    We bought this to replace a different brand unit that stopped working after 3 days. This one pulled so much moisture out that it turned off as it should. No more damp feeling on clothing, couch, or linens. So glad we found this and are 100% satisfied.

    One month plus in and the unit is performing well. No surprises on operation or noise level. Like most things it blends into the background. I would highly recommend the Geek Squad coverage, hassles are minimized. I hope to update by end of summer.

    I've had several dehumidifiers and they only seem to last about 1-2 years before freezing up and quitting. All but one other have been 70 pint ones, but this 50 pint Insignia betters them with moisture removal and has been doing great. Been going for 3 months now and basement/house is staying between 38-42% humidity. I have it draining into sump pump so no bucket to empty. Next time it goes on sale, I'm getting another one.

    Has many of the features that you would want in a dehumidifier including an LED screen where one can set the humidity percentage where the power will fully activate, versus the actual humidity in the room. So far the unit has worked efficiently, removing the moisture in our basement.

    This has been an excellent dehumidifier. Bought for my mom and she has brought the humidity in her house down from a constant 70% to 43%. It feels much better and is healthier for her to get the humidity under control. She loves it. I have considered buying a second smaller one for a bedroom as well. Highly recommend if you have any humidity problems. It does put out a little heat while running but that’s normal and not unmanageable for the difference it makes.
