Excerpt: This is a very small, compact mini-dehumidifier. It sounds great, it even has an ultra-violet light to help rid your home of contaminates and mold. It isn't overly loud. However, that's where the good stuff ends because it is a rather dismal failure.
Excerpt: About three months ago, I was searching for a small dehumidifier for my bathroom. It was always really steamy in there, and I was getting tired of all the humidity. I purchased the Sunpentown mini dehumidifier. It was definitely a bargain, and I have not really had any problems with it so far. The only thing I can really say I dislike about it is because of its size, it would not fully remove all of the humidity from a normal sized room.
Sunpentown Mini Dehumidifier pulls moisture out of the air.

Excerpt: The Sunpentown Mini Dehumidifier works very well despite it's small size. I needed a dehumidifier for my bathroom. It didn't have a window in the room and even with a ventilation fan it was still a steamy mess in that room. I needed a smaller unit, not one of the massive ones that will dehumidify your entire home. So this seemed perfect for me. I turns out that I was right. It worked great. It pulled a lot of moisture out of the air.
Avoid this unit - power pack appears to have a design flaw.

Summary: Liked the modest performance of this unit in my 160 sq ft motorhome in Fla, but after going thru 2 identical units and burning out 3 of the power packs I give up & will be trying a different brand. The selection is now larger & better than it was when I made first purchase in 2010. The power pack / transformer is an awful design; it runs so hot that I constructed a simple wooden cradle to avoid making a 2nd scorch mark on the vinyl flooring.
Summary: Bought this for my apartment room which suppose to work for its size. However, I had it on all night and collected only 1/4 inch of water. Very disappointing. It's also not as quiet as described. Open it up and you can find how poorly designed hardware it is inside. You would be surprised if it works...

Summary: This did a good job of dehumidifying my small laundry room except the following: 1) Auto drain tube kept falling out, so couldn't use constant drain function. 2) Power cable died after 11.5 months.
