Summary: We just moved into a new (to us) house, and within a few weeks we realized that the basement was way wetter than necessary, and was starting to mold. This dehumidifier really saved things - it got rid of the gross wet smell, and was basically running 24-7. I left it on when we left town for a few weeks, with it draining into a drain in the basement.
very quiet, all musty smell and moisture gone in hours.

Summary: it is real quiet. stays running most of the time in the basement near the sump pump. We, the wife also, find it easy to move around as it has wheels to roll. It is medium heavy, you will minor muscles to lift it. Empties very easily, and holds a lot of water. Auto turn-off works excellent. We roll it all over and the musty smell is gone. We both find it sexy looking. You MUST let it sit in the area you want to reduce moisture at for 24 hrs before starting it.
Summary: I gave this 5 stars because this dehumidifier does what it is supposed to do. I have 1200sqft basement which was smelling musty and very damp! plugged this bad boy in and it's been dry ever since. i would recommend this to anyone with a damp musty basement in their home, although i would advise against putting it in a living room because it is pretty Loud. you will not be sorry you bought this!!!!!!!!!
Summary: We've used this over the entire summer here in Michigan where it gets very humid. Our basement can get quite damp with mold. This completely eliminated our problem. Not very loud and love the automatic off when it hits the humidity level you set it at. I like the flexibility of the unit and the auto drain that can be set up. This unit does not come with the tube needed for the auto drain. We used an hose and hooked it up on the back of the unit.
Summary: Works much better than the recalled Kenmore that its replacing. The Kenmore was only 6 months old, but this unit is quieter and the hose connection is better. The only issue is the exhaust vent comes out the top. I took a universal air deflector from HD (or similar to "Model 50 Premium Unbreakable Air Deflector" on amazon) for forced hot air vents and taped it over top to direct most of the airflow sideways. Works great, no issues.
Summary: I've had this dehumidifier for about 6 months now and it has worked great. We had our basement flood with water recently and I let this unit run continuously and all the water and musty smell was gone within 48 hours. The water bucket is a little tricky to remove and drain but I mostly use it connected to a drain hose so I don't need the bucket much.
Summary: Received this unit 3 days ago - after reading manual and contacting Frigidare customer service I found that some information stated in the PRODUCT FEATURES description on Amazon; as well as in the manufacture's PDF manual is incorrect and/or misleading. 1) FAN - runs continuously regardless of whether the compressor is running or not - So even when the desired HUMIDITY level is achieved the fan continues to operate and as Customer Service says "circulates the air" -...
