Summary: I rely heavily on reviews when I purchase anything anymore. This dishwasher had mixed reviews so, for me, it was taking a "chance" buying it. But I love it! My biggest surprise was how extremely QUIET it is. Honestly, I don't care if a dishwasher is quiet because I run it at night...but this one is so quiet that I can't even tell it's on sometimes. I imagine you couldn't find a quieter one if that's your thing.
