Summary: Purchased this 50 pint dehumidifier for my basement. Set-up was very easy. This is the third dehumidifier I have owned and it is also the most efficient. It is amazing how much water is collected each day. The filter is easy to clean and replace. So nice to have the alert when it needs cleaning.
Pros: Compact, Ductable, Easy To Set Up, Effective Water Removal, Energy Efficient, Large Water Bucket, Quiet
Summary: Had I realized that the fan ran continuously, I never would have ordered it. Very annoying. So now I have it on an external timer, which seems to work. The programable timer that is part of the controls, is worthless. If it wasn't such a hassle, I would have sent it back.
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.
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.
