Summary: I got the dehumidifier and set it up and turned it on, everything seems to be easy and working well. This thing is quite loud though! It didn't bother me that much since it is in my basement. However, a day later when I noticed that the machine kept going on, I went down to the basement to check, I found water is leaking all over the place! The machine supposed to shut-off when the tank is full, but it didn't! Imagine if we were away for a week, what it would happen!
Summary: I live in Virginia, and obviously it's VERY humid here in the summer time, so this thing fills up every day. Just have to make sure you empty it. It makes it very bearable in my place, so I'm grateful for that.
Summary: I had been smelling damp cardboard in my semi-finished basement, where I have a dozen or so boxes stored. Once the wife mentioned it felt damp down there, I started to research, and chose this Frigidaire. I've dumped a couple of gallons out of this machine since I received it four days ago. When on high (the only setting I've used so far), it's about as loud as the typical air conditioner.
Take the load off my Central A/C and cools a bit while removing 50 pints a day on these heavy humid days in the Northeast.

Summary: I run this non stop and it works so well. Be careful that a full 50 pints isn't too heavy to lift. I had an old 30 pint delonghi that lasted for years so I decided to try the frigidaire and up the size to 70 but thought that might be too heavy. I''m so glad I didn't get the 70 pint. Unless you're draining it from the built in hose discharge to a sink or the outside I would get the 50 or 30 pint version so you can handle the heavy bucket when it fills.
Summary: After much online research I decided to try this unit for whole-house living-area dehumidification & comfort The house has 7 people in 2,000 sq ft. With normal activity the humidity makes a moderate temperature a bit stuffy. 75F 55% humidity is too stuffy. I end up turning the AC down a couple degrees to drop the humidity. This unit, placed in a central location and run continuously on Low, pulled about 4gal of water a day from the house and kept humidity at 40-42%.
Summary: To start, I like this dehumidifier. It's fairly quite for the amount of air it moves but in no way do I feel I would be happy with it in the room with me except to sleep as white noise. The main issue I have is that the fan runs continually. This has been a point of confusion in the reviews but it is definatly the case. The condenser does stop running when the desired humidity is reached but the fan does not. This seems odd to me and why I took away 2 stars.
Summary: Like the unit. Bucket holds a good amount of water. Our last dehumidifier constantly needed to be emptied. Only complaint I have is I asked the "community" if there was a beep when the bucket was full. Every answer was no, however we do get a beep. It's not as loud as our last dehumidifier, but it is there. Hopefully we can find a way to turn off the beep, the unit is near the bedroom. I'd buy the unit again though.
Summary: Just a quick and to the point review. I have a complete underground finished basement. Needless to say in the rainy season and dead of summer it gets very humid down there. I used to have a Solerus 30 which did ok. After the recall I had to replace it and chose this Frigidaire unit based on its positive reviews. Well this 50 pint unit is heads and tails above my old unit. I can get it very comfortable and dry in my 1400 square foot basement like never before.
