I have a real 'molecular water' problem in the storeroom of my basement (no bulk water, just high humidity). This unit seems to be able to bring the humidity level down to tolerable levels. I have it hooked up to drain into a 'trap', which is plumbed into my plumbing waste line--works very well. The one feature that would make this a real '5 star' unit would be an LED readout of the relative humidity (RH) and temperature of the air entering the unit. The only readout this unit gives is the RH% that I set the unit to shut off at. I run my unit on the 'on 2 hrs/off 2 hrs' setting and a target RH level of 55%. It would be very nice to know what the humidity level of the air entering the unit is when it turns on (after being off for 2 hours) and how rapidly it brings the humidity level down to the desired level.

My LD451EGL worked fine for about a year although it was very noisy, seems the outside plastic cover had some vibrations in it that I couldn't resolve. Beginning the second year it kept running continually, but deposited very little, if any, water in the bucket. I took the covers off to check and clean, if needed, (it didn't) and put it back together. Still no water in the bucket. Only thing I can figure is that it lost its' coolant. Seems no one in the world wants to recharge it. Looks GREAT but DOESN'T WORK!!! Perhaps the compressor??? But how do I have that determined???

A disappointment for the price.
from Chicago, IL, USA
Bucket extremely inconvenient. No pour spout, even after remoing lid in order to pour on shoe. Gave up & installed hose - pictures/diagrams unreadable. Very poor instructions. Took two of us to puzzle it out. Turns on & off far too frequently - 2/4 hour settings make non difference. Means highs electric use. Positive: Very quiet, best of the 5 or 6 i've owned, by far.. Stylish.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This product worked great until it stopped working. Right after the one-year warranty expired ... imagine that. Go figure ...
easy to operate

I noticed that this little guy is a great workhorse. I have had it in my basement all summer and it has been working around the clock! My basement feels like a room in my house now.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
It has good features.
from Maine, USA
In general, this is a good product, but needs improvement on the hose attachment feature. It does not fit securely in the back of the unit and can pull-out if the unit is moved at all on its wheels.
from St. Louis, MO
The bucket sometimes is hard to remove and hard to properly return to its place in the unit. Also, occassionally the floater that indicates the bucket is full does not work causing the bucket to overflow. Fortunately, the appliance is in an unfinished part of the basement.
Great dehumidifier for the price.
Excellent choice for performance and ease of operation. Quiet and fairly non-obtrusive.
Product exceeds my expectations for performance
from Groveland, MA, USA
Have tried using the 2 and 4 hour on and then off. I have also used the automatic setting for humidity control. Both ways the unit is great. If I have a preference I would just leave it on automatic and let the unit do all the work. Dollar for dollar the unit works great.
Overall good unit-doing the job it's supposed to d
from Arlington, VA, USA
Unit easy to get operating and the 2 and 4 hour features are a nice to have. Only problem is removing basket and reinserting it after emptying. Would like to see 2 vertical handles on each side for easier removal of basket and an easier way to line-up for inserting an empty one. It's a little bit noisy but I can live with it.
This dehumidifier works very well.
I use the dehumidifier in my basement which is very damp. I love the modern design. It handles the dampness very well. When I forget to turn it on I notice the difference right away. Also, once I turn it back on, it dries the atmosphere very quickly. I've had other brands that claimed "automatic shut-off" but somehow still continued to run and ultimately resulted in water leaking out. That doesn't happen with this product. Not only does it shut off when filled, it actually shuts off before the container is filled to the brim which makes it easy to empty without water sloshing over the sides as I walk to the sink. Overall I am very happy with the product.
