Summary: I received my dehumidifier as a gift, so I had not done research prior to the purchase. It was interesting to read the other reviews. We live in southern Mississippi, and humidity is a continual visitor you can't seem to evict. Even if we're just gone a day or two, I can smell moist in the house when we return. Closets are a continual problem with moisture. This little machine was put to use immediately. The other reviews that I read today often complained about noise.
Had a problem at nearly one year but works great (again)....

Summary: I have had this unit for nearly a year and it has worked fairly well at removing moisture from a bedroom in a cottage. However, today I cannot get the water tank to remove for emptying!!! There is no release, no way to get it to slide out of the back. I suspect that the rubber plug in the top came dislodged and is preventing the tank from sliding out. I never had problems before. UPDATE!
Summary: I purchased this to bring humidity down to a comfortable level in an 8x8 storage room that was converted to an office. The office does not have A/C but is cooled by pulling air from the laundry room with a room to room wall fan. Prior to installation the humidity level was above 60...after installation it now runs 40-50.
Summary: Contrary to what it says in the product description, this product does not come with a DC adapter. It just has a typical AC adapter, so, in spite of the fact that it operates at 12 volts, there is no way to use it directly from a DC source. It looks like a nice unit if you want to use it as described in other reviews, but not in your boat or vehicle.
Summary: I knew this unit was going to be small. It is in our bathroom which has NO ventilation via exhaust fan. I collects about a cup of water per week. Live in Florida and it is the dry spring season here. Hope that when the humidity rises to a constant 95% outside that this unit will pull more moisture out of the bathroom. D. S.
