Summary: This unit worked great, but alas, for one season only. When I went to use it the following summer, it made all the right sounds, and all the right lights lit up, but no water collected into the water receptacle, even though it *sounded* like it was pulling in the water.
Summary: We had a very bad summer with my asthma and every time I plugged this in, it would blow a fuse. I reached down to see why, and the cord was very HOT. They discontinued this item, and now I am wondering if it was due to this causing fires.
Every once in a while a special product comes along that delights....

Summary: ... and this isn't it. It sounds great (Low power consumption, 46-pints-per-24-hours, UV to kill germs and/or mold), but just doesn't perform. Possibly mine was defective, but it ran 24x7 and managed to remove a few pints per day and was never able to get the humidity down to my desired 50%.
Summary: This is the first dehumidifier that I have ever used and it's been great.I live in the South, and the humidity level has been very high this summer. After reading lots of reviews, I decided on this unit and it's the best money I have spent in a long time.
Summary: This is a fantastic little dehumidifier perfect for a basement or large room. We have split level home with garage & 1 bed/bath on the 1st floor. The home is built into the side of a hill so you may even consider this room a basement as it's lower than most of the house.
Summary: This baby is awesome! For the past 2 years, I've been using a Soleus 25pint which sounds like it wants to stop working. Although the SPT isn't as quiet as the Soleus, the SPT really works 3x better at dehumidifying. I placed the Soleus in the bedroom since it's quieter.
Summary: This dehumidifier uses 480W max when sucking humidity. That means 21.7L/11.5KWH = 1.8L/KWH in 80% humidity - a very energy efficient unit. But this power includes UV and fan also. It is light and easy to port with no sharp edges in unit or bucket. So this is very soft on hands and nice looking.
Wating for this to arrive. Will give it 4 stars now

Summary: I just ordered this de-humidifier. The word quiet came up often in other reviews so that is why I purchased it. Expensive but I have music and photo equipment that can't be ruined. We'll see and will update my review after I get this item.
