Summary: This is a great unit for the price! I had terrible moisture issues with my basement and this did the trick. You can hear it running if you're near the unit but it's not terribly loud and doesn't bother me at all. The water bucket is small so if you have a major moisture issue like I have it's best to purchase a hose separately for draining into a sump pump or floor drain. So glad to finally have a mildew free basement!
Bought this dehumidifier twice and it's broken each time after mild use in a bathroom. Low quality and durability. Extremely lou

Summary: I've had two of these units and they both broke within a year of mild use in my bathroom. When I contacted Frigidaire they told me: As these units are designed for use in warmer weather, the effectiveness of this product cannot be accurately measured during winter months. At this time, we are unable to offer a replacement for your dehumidifier. So Frigidaire is saying these units won't work in the winter. A total cop out--it's not like I'm using the dehumidifier outside.
Deeply regret buying this dehumidifier and will never buy another product from Frigidaire, ever!

Summary: We bought this unit in September and loved it for the six weeks that it worked. After 6 weeks the fan continued running but it did not pull any of the moisture out of our basement. When we called Frigidaire to get a replacement or repair under the one year warranty that we had, our request was denied.

Summary: I purchased this product almost one year to the day. It has stopped working and has been over heating. I followed up on and found a recall on some of the their products that have been over heating and causing house fires. I called the Frigidaire customer service number and a local repair number, referred to by Frigidaire, to only get an endless loop of tape recordings. I'm still not able to determine problem with my unit and what to do with it. Customer service stinks.
Summary: This thing works really well, and has fixed a mold issue I was having in my basement. Really happy that I purchased it. The air feels dryer and it is easier to breath. I have two issues. 1. The tank has a lip for your fingers that you use to slide it out. That lip was held on with two tiny screws. The third time I removed a full tank of water, that lip ripped right off. I looked and there were two other screw holes that were not being used.
Summary: I purchased a 50-pint Frigidaire dehumidifier for my basement over a year ago. Before buying this 30-pint for an upstairs area, I looked at both good and not-so-good reviews, even though I was happy with the 50-pint. The negative reviews gave me pause, but I went ahead and ordered the 30-pint, based on personal experience. For me, both have been absolute workhorses.
Summary: I was a bit concerned that this product wouldn't be enough to dehumidify my basement. It is a partial with a crawl space. I have an older dehumidifier running alongside of the frigidaire as a backup/helping hand and it rarely has to help. The frigidaire has been keeping my basement at 50% without it being on constantly or set to full. Much quieter than the older one I have. Seems to be a good product.
Summary: Prompt delivery. As described. No damage. I needed a very small footprint, hose drain, and as quiet as I could find. Size and drain are perfect. It seems loud to me--air flow noise only. The unit uses a high volume squirrel cage fan to ensure robust air flow over the condensing coils. There is absolutely no noise from the cooling compressor. I wouldn't buy anything rated louder if you have this in a living space like I do. I can't image the racket from anything louder...

Summary: This sturdy dehumidifier keeps the mold and mildew out of my small storage room (40 sq. feet) with little ventilation, and its ability to be drained to the outside enables it to do the job without my attention. I had drilled a small hole in the wall and inserted a clear vinyl hose that I was able to secure to the larger standard-sized hose that fits the dehumidifier's drain.
