    The casters work great to move it around the room easily..but one has to snap the casters in themselves. After turning the unit off, wait a minute or two so the water drains into the removable tank; otherwise, it will "leak" a little water out. It doesn't spill onto the floor as it collects in the area of the unit where the tank sits. Pouring the water out of the tank can be tricky.....you have to hold it just right and pour slowly so it only pours out of one area. The unit is a bit noisy and the fan constantly runs. so far, it is doing what I want it to do. It does generate some heat, so if you have it in a closed room, the temperature will rise. Good unit...wish it was a bit quieter, but it is the perfect size and capacity for what I needed.

    Bot this for the garage. This is the 4th dehumidifier in 10 years. Various brands lasted only from 18 mos to 2 years and quit working. Repair centers say they are junk built in So. Korea and junk them. This spring a salesman at Lowe's told me theirs also and will run about 6 mos after warranty. Found this on BB on line. Added the 4 yr. Geek Squad plan for $40. If it goes 4 years i,'ll be surprised, if not i,m covered. Works great, a little difficult to empty, and is so good it needs emptying 2x per day. Would buy another if it operates 5 years....still have a 25 yr. Old Arvin from Monkey Ward doing just fine, so long lasting quality/know how is out there.

    Perfect little dryer

    We have a damp basement and have used a dehumidifier to control the moisture. Our last unit just gave out after 3 years of continous operation. I would have gotten it but the brand is now defunct. Long story short, we got this Whynter unit and it's very powerful for the size. It's getting more moisture than before but it fills up quick. If you need a compact unit this would be it.

    It is refreshing to purchase something that works as it should. Now a days that simple task is hard to accomplish. The dehumidifier is very quiet, dehumidifies well, the controls are simple to use and the bucket is easy to remove and empty. Half of the things I buy I would not buy again. This is not the case here. I would definitely buy this item again.

    An Energy Star compliant appliance with a small footprint. Room feels cooler since it removes the mugginess from the air. As a bonus, in drought stricken California, it collects water from the air and automatically shuts off when full. I water my plants with this special "bonus water" every other day! A smart purchase over an expensive air conditioner and cheaper on energy. Don't give up your fan as this is not.

    I really like this dehumidifier. It has a display showing current temperature and humidity. There are two fan speeds and it is very easy to adjust the level of humidity. The collection bucket easily slides out and a folding handle is readily available to carry it to the sink. Nice and quiet and pulling humidity out of the air as I type this. Buy it!

    I have had three of these...the first one worked awesome for almost a year and then suddenly stopped working. Returned it for another one and it didn't work properly from the first time it was plugged in. Returned for the third one and it too didn't work properly. ended up going with a different brand....

    I use it in my basement. I had an old one down there for years that just sucked on so much electricity. Glad to give the energy star rated one a show as it runs continuously for months at a time. So far so good. The bill is way down probably 50% less than the previous one. It's quiet small and works really well. Would recommend this so far only a couple months in.

    I've only been running it for a week but so far so good. Its much quieter than my old one and based on amount of water I have to empty each day it appears to be doing what it is supposed to. I know the house in a very hot humid week feels better and I have actually raised air cond temp a couple degrees. Hopefully long term use is same.

    So far it's been running great. Runs quiet. My only problem is when you take the tray out, it still has water running out as if it were still in. The unit shuts off, but water still runs out. Overall I really like it though. Very good for the money.

    Seemed to be well-made but it puts out heat

    Should work well in a basement, but not in a bedroom because it generates heat around the unit. After an hour of use, it raised the room temperature 2-3 degrees, unfortunately.

    I would definitely recommend this dehumidifier. We have purchased others in the past, but this one is much easier to empty the water container and it is much quieter. We are very pleased with this purchase!

    I wish it turned on/off automatically. I either have it on all the time, or on the timer or not at all. I have it draining directly into pipe. Works good. Not too loud. For a small unit, it works well.

    Easy setup ...works great to draw a lot of extra moisture out of the air. It has already improved the smell in my basement apartment. It is very easy to use & understand. And it has been very energy efficient.

    We use this dehumidifier int he basement to remove the musty smell from time to time. So far it has worked fine. It runs quietly and seems effective. We have to dump the water out about once week or so.

    Use it in my basement. Easy to use, keeps the humidity down like it is supposed to. Spilled water the first time I emptied it, but learned the trick to avoid that in the future.

    Wanted a small dehumidifier that was extremely portable to be used only when needed. This fits the bill and was well priced. Easy to set up. Quiet and working perfectly so far.

    If you are looking for good, quiet humidifier at a reasonable price, this is the one you want. It drops the humidity quick and very quiet. Completely satisfied.

    I empty 30 pints every morning. I did not know how much moisture was in the basement.. I have set it at 50% and it is working very well to help make that space comfortable.

    The humidifier is working well so far and is not noisy. It is pulling a lot of humidity out of the house and taking some of the strain off of the AC in all this heat.
