    Very noisy and doesn't work

    After reading all the positive reviews, I chose this over other dehumidifiers. However, once I started running it, it was VERY noisy. I would compare it to a large old in-window AC. I thought that I could get over the noise if it did its job. It has now been almost a week since I had it running at 35% humidity and the bucket is barely a quarter of the way full and it seems to getting louder. I've located it in a room outside my bedroom and the noise still bothers me to the point that my ears ring when it sporadically turns off. Earplugs can't even block the noise out. I had another dehumidifier in the same location before and I emptied the 50L bucket once a day when it was humid and it was barely audible from my room. Unfortunately, I have no other option but to return this product.

      Hi Tara,

      Thank you very much for taking the time to review our Portable Dehumidifier. It is always disheartening when a newly purchase product does not work correctly but to not get the support you need to get it up and running is unacceptable.

      Please contact us at 877-467-4289 for your warranty support needs and we will get you back up and running.

    Bought this to complement my air cond and see if running a dehumidifier allows setting the air cond at higher temp and still keep the humidity low. All in all, it seems to work and the electric bill seem to have decreased a but, but being in operation only for a month, I can't be sure. As many similar units, this dehumidifier suffers from a basic flaw: the exhaust is located too close to the intake, so it ends up recirculating a decent percentage of air making it look like that when it turns on, it lowers the humidity by 5% right away, and the opposite when it turns off. I wish these units came with an attachment for a flexible hose (even not included) so you can exhaust at a decent distance from the intake (I'd like 10ft). Anyway, this is not a problem with this unit, but it's common to all units due to size. Having had mine for about a month I cannot comment on longevity; reading many reviews I id purchase mine with a 4-years plan; it was on offer, so monetarily it wasn't bad at all, even with the extended coverage.

    This dehumidifier has done a great job drying out my basement. The previous one (not this brand) lasted just over a year and never worked very well, I've only had this a few weeks but am very happy with it. Noise levels are reasonable, and before I hook a hose to it I've been letting the reservoir fill up so I can kind-of keep tabs on how much water it's taking out of the environment. I check it 3x a day and it's filling it as fast as I can drain it. Nice job... I also picked this up on a "deal of the day", so the price was right. Overall, a great deal I'm very happy with.

    This dehumidifier works excellent! Does the job quickly for our large basement and it now feels perfect down there! I couldn't believe in just two days how much it improved the feel and it now only kicks on periodically to keep up with it. Also, doesn't hurt the electric bill, maybe added a few extra bucks a month which is super worth it to have a dry basement we can use now!! It's a fairly quiet noise that can be heard just well enough from upstairs to know when it's full. No complaints, happy customer!!!

    I’ve used this for almost 2 weeks now at my beach condo. It has been working good so far. Does what it’s suppose to...removes moisture from the air. The bucket is big enough that I only need to dump it once a day. Once you set it up and set your desire %, it’ll run til the desired % then turn off. So it does what I need it for. Got it because of the low price. I was replacing these every year or other year. If this lasts a year then I’ll be happy due to the price I paid. We’ll see about reliability and how long this lasts.

    Very good dehumidifier, better than the one it replaced from a different manufacturer. It is stylish and doesn't have that square "boxy" look than many do. The controls are logical and well laid out. The back is a crosshatch pattern, which is much more stylish than the typical slits. Plus, the filter is in the back and much more convenient to take out and clean than the more usual location above the water tray in the front (where you have to remove to the tray to get to the filter). Finally, it seems to pull out moisture very quickly. So far so good...

    The product works well and is a good value for the price. I use a drainage hose for continuous use rather than emptying the bucket each time and it works well. My only 2 complaints about the product are that it has pretty significantly increased my energy bill (my old Frigidaire model was a lot more efficient) and that it emits quite a bit of warm air, which heats up my basement (my basement is often warmer than my top floor).

    I bought this to complement my air conditioner unit and it seems to work nicely. The theory is that you leave the dehumidifier running to keep the humidity low and rely less on the air conditioner (which uses more electricity). You can set the temperature a couple of degrees higher and still feel comfortable if the humidity is lower. Since the dehumidifier uses less electricity than the air conditioner, it saves some money.

    Everyone should have dehumidifiers, especially in inherently damp areas of their home. Whenever I empty the bucket I think of where all this moisture would be if not for this product. New or old, every house should have at least one. This Insignia 70 pint unit is worth it's weight in gold. Works very well and is efficient. I bought it on a Deal of the Day sale for a great price and I didn't even need it at the time! It was the proverbial "NO BRAINER" , get one.

    Bought this dehumidifier about 1 month ago. Easy to setup and use. Ran hose to sump pump because it draws so much moisture from our basement we were emptying it 2-3 times a day now basement is at a consistent 47 humidity level and noticed a big difference. Would definitely recommend especially when it was so cheap as a deal of the day compared to other 70 pint dehumidifiers.

We’ve had it over six months, once we put it in the basement humidity went down from 85% to 35% has casters makes it easy to move, so quiet, got a bucket to collect the water also a nice drain hole from the back to hook up a hose if you wanna skip emptying the bucket, we love it so so so so much, we recommend everyone to buy it!!

    I bought this dehumidifier to keep my basement dry while being out of town. I attached a hose to it and put it in the sump pump. So far, everything is great, very low noise and I never have to shut it off. I never have to empty it and the room stays dry. This is one of my best investments and I highly recommend purchasing one.

    This is my first dehumidifier purchase and so far I am very pleased. Often the humidity in my bedroom will be stifling even though the temperature isn't high enough to run the AC. I am truly amazed at the amount of moisture extracted. It was my first purchase of an Insignia appliance so I bought the 4 year warranty.

    Good job removing humidity, but blows hot air out

    We've had this dehumidifier for about a month and a half. It seems to have done just as good a job at removing the water from the air as our old one did before it quit working. The only downside that we've found so far is that it blows pretty hot air out when it's running, so it heats up the area around it quite a bit.

    Works well so far, but intense summer humidity is not here yet. Very nice quality dehumidifier, lots of settings options, etc. Runs fairly quietly considering the size/power/capacity of the unit. Casters roll well. Power cord is of decent length too.

    I purchased this on sale and gave it a try. It performed as advertised. It is simple to setup and works well. I used a hose to connect to this so I didn’t have to keep empting out the bucket. I use it in my basement and it kept it dry throughout the entire spring and summer.

    Not much to write about - it seems to de-humidify. I have a storage area which gets pretty humid and this unit seems to reduce the humidity level appreciably. I only wish that I had a drain in this area so I did not have to empty the water bin - but not the dehumidifier's fault!

    keeps my 1,000 sq foot basement dry during the wet early-spring time. Just make sure you don't have cracks in your foundation or this dehumidifier will not be able to keep up with the water leaking in. My only nitpick is the water tank is a little tricky to slide in.

    Purchased this particular model because it had the option to use a drain hose. Very impressed with the amount of moisture it pulls from the air. Run this unit continuously with no problems so far. Highly recommend.

    We bought one previously on a deal of the day and when it came up again we had to get another one for the basement, it works great and is much quieter than an other brand we had. Really good purchase!!!!!!!
