Summary: Beware of the oblong exhaust! Beware of the oblong exhaust! Positives: Overall, it works better than the Haier, and has a see through glass window. Negatives: Oblong exhaust The lint filter is tougher to clean than Haier, although not as hard as I make it seem. It just unsnaps when you push the snaps up one by one. Unknowns: My Haier served me well for 5 years. I'm not sure how long this will last.

Summary: So after I'm not very happy. Our dryer gave out 1 month before a move. We purchased this so we didn't have to take a large dryer down to the basement. Yes we can use it in the living room but it's taking hours to dry a small load of delicates and shirts. It doesn't heat up well and I expect my heating bill to rise because I have to leave it running so long. I will update if it gets ant better. Would be such a hassle to return.

Summary: This dryer is lightweight and easy to move around if you need. I had to buy a round 4" FLEXIBLE vent hose ($10) from Lowe's with a clamp so I could vent it out the window. The vent hose doesn't get too terribly hot- you can put your hand on it. You can choose not to vent it and if you only use the cool setting it won't heat up the room. However it will take forever for your cottons/heavy jeans to dry on the cool setting.
Too short, difficult to set up, but otherwise okay.

Summary: Pros: 1. Uses a standard Edison plug (i.e. parallel blade with a ground). This can be either a pro or a con. For me it was problematic because the outlet for my washer and dryer was on only a 20 amp circuit. A 30-amp dryer plug would have been more convenient for me. That said, it is nice to know that I can use this dryer if my next apartment doesn't have a dryer outlet. 2. Decent little workhorse--takes some time to get things dry, but it does what it's designed to do.
Summary: First off I would like to say that I had to return this once because when I turned it on the heat element went on but the drum would not turn. Then it would start to make a really loud whirring noise. I called the company and they said to just return it. I then received it and IT DID THE SAME THING! Furious I called the company and they sent a tech out and found that a part that was attached to the drum came undone during shipping because of improper handling.
Summary: This is a well-executed product. It pretty much nails its use case, with no drawbacks, other than those inherent to the limitations of any such product in its class (i.e., its small size). It dries very well. In "auto" mode it will dry your clothes until it detects that they are no longer wet, and then it continues blowing unheated air until time runs out. If the unit is loaded with clothes that all dry at a similar rate, the results are very good.
