I am overall very pleased with this dehumidifier, which I've owned for three weeks. This is my first dehumidifier, so I have no basis for comparison with other units. It is very effective at dehumidifying my basement and runs quietly. My only complaint is that with a garden hose attached, it still drains into the pan. The port that it screws onto is in a tight spot and maybe the connection is leaking. I've read many internet posts about this problem with humidifiers of various makes and models and am sure I'll eventually solve it. The water collection container is smallish. Initially, I was emptying it 4 times a day. Now that there is less humidity in the basement, it's maybe once every two days. Others have mentioned that the container is awkward to remove, but I have no problem with it.

We've got a finished basement in our home. It's a newly built home and we noticed moisture. We bought this product to help with the problem. It does take moisture from the 1560 sq. ft. space. It runs almost nonstop though and I am worried that it may eventually burn up. I've got it set on 60. It is very loud. Sounds like a window airconditioner. So far, it's working and doing it's job. Next time I will try to buy a quieter brand though.

I am very happy with this product. It is quiet and works well. I would buy this product again.
Quiet yet Efficient
from glen ellyn, IL
I wish there was an off/on cycle. The delay off simply turns the unit off. It would be great if it worked for a number of hours then turned off for a number of hours, etc.The only other problem was the initial dehumidification took longer than previous units did.
I now have 2 of these!

This is a very easy-to-use effective dehumidifier and it looks really nice as well! I have one in my basement and one in the garage and they both make a big difference.
Delivery from ABT is always quick and my product arrived carefully packed and in perfect condition.
The best dehumidifier I have ever owned!
from Eldora, Iowa
I love this dehumidifier! It has surpassed my expectations within a short period of time. My house had suffered damage caused by a hail storm and I was beginning to have a mold and mildew problem in my basement. This dehumidifier rocks because you can connect a hose to it and not have to worry about someone needing to remember to empty the pan every couple of hours. Within 2 days the musty smell in my basement was GONE!!! It should not go without mentioning how quiet this machine is. It is also lightweight and on wheels, so even your Grandmom could move it around with ease. Well worth the cost and I would definitely buy this model again!
I could not believe how quickly this was delivered, within 4 days of ordering, and I happened to catch a "free shipping" special on it. I was elated to get it so soon. Definitely didn't get what I paid for when it comes to the shipping. Thank you so much! I will definitely look to your company first when it comes to internet shopping.
so far so good
It was easy to set up, connecting garden hose to allow it drain to the sump pump was also easy. It gets the basement to 45, but not any lower and seems to be running all the time in order to maintain 45. It's about the same size as the kenmore that broke and about as noisy (or as quiet); it's probably a little loud if used in living rooms or bedrooms.
So far so good 3 weeks!
