Worst company ever!

JMI, Amazon
21 February 2012
  • Summary: I bought 2 of these. One for my mother and one for myself. Neither one worked right out of the box. Mine was able to be fixed by a local appliance guy. The other was shipped directly to them ($30). They denied having received it.

Cheaply made, only lasts a year

tnsbond "SBD", Amazon

  • Summary: In all fairness I must say this does do a good job at dehumidfying our basement. But that is about it. Beyond that this thing is built to last maybe a year or two and that is it. We bought ours just over a year ago (now just a couple months outside the 1 year warranty of course) and liked the idea...

Don't buy this product

BigT "BigT", Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased two of these units. The first one died after about 1 year. It will not turn on at all. If you call Royal Sovereign, they will offer to charge you $85 to ship it back to them and repair it. The repair is included in the $85 charge. It simply isn't worth it.

  • Summary: Bought ours like everyone else thought my humdid problem was solved but the fact is I was RIPPED OFF. Fact is that the BDH-450 like the other "ROYAL SOVEREIGN" units is manufactured poorly and not designed to stand up to Actual everyday application.

It Blew UP!

Robert, Amazon
16 December 2011
  • Summary: After setting up the BDH-450 dehumidifier and turned it on, the adjustable fan switch(button) did nothing. It ran for about 15 minutes then it BLEW UP! It shot one of the handles into the middle of the room exposing an exploded capacitor. (I'm returning it to the store where it was purchased.

Fire Starter

Chris Carson, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought mine in 2009 from Costco. It ran well for a couple of years in our basement. Then it caught on fire in June 2013 while we were not home causing major damage to our house. The unit was barely recognizable.

HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE

FFC, Amazon
30 November 2011
  • Summary: I bought mine from another website. First one arrived, the box was destroyed, so I did not take a chance and refused it. Called for another one. After waiting for a strong person to carry it to my cellar, unpacked it and the castor was broken.
