Summary: I bought the Danby dehumidifier about a year ago after Frigidaire bought back my defective Frigidaire dehumidifier. Prior to that I had a Whirlpool dehumidifier that stopped working after one year. I set the Danby at 50% and run the fan on high. No problems and my unfinished basement is dry. I used the included drain hose for continuous operation and no need to empty bucket.
Summary: Works well. Relatively quiet - compared to the previous one that I owned. Easy to attach the drain. Only complaint is that the fan doesn't turn itself off when the desired humidity level is reached, so, i wonder what its lifetime will be.
Summary: The unit failed to provide any meaningful energy savings. The unit has a single display that combines measurement and setting. The lack of two displays, a dedicated humidity readout, and a dedicated setting readout is annoying. The vendor "Focus Electronics & Appliances" was a bit of a trickster. The company's delivered price was substantially higher than their competitors as the company low-balled the unit price and gouged on the shipping charge(s).

Summary: Read in Consumer Reports that this dehumidifier was rated very highly. After using it for a few weeks now, I find it very effective in quickly reducing the humidity in the finished basement of my home from around 70% to a comfortable 40%. It is also quieter than the last one that I had been using.

Summary: So far so good. It was purchased to replace the recalled Gree humidifier. It would be nice if the fan did not run constantly but I use the timer to run it instead of letting it run all day and night and it isn't very noisy in the basement.
