We use the product in our basement, where we had problems with buckling floors before the use of dehumidifiers. We need it in the summers, when the air is humid, whereas it usually does not need to run in our dry winters.
So far, the product works well and keeps the humidity at the desired level. One feature I really like is the display of the current humidity. Emptying the bucket manually is fairly easy, and it is convenient that there are not any cover-parts that obstruct the water when pouring it out (had that problem with previous products).
The only disadvantage I discovered so far is that it increases the temperature in the room when it is running frequently, thus I took one star away in the rating.
This is our third dehumidifier in our house in 6 1/2 years and so far it worked well through the first summer. However, so did our previous ones - the problems usually come after 2-3 years. So I hope it will not fail us as quickly as our previous ones.

I bought this unit based on reader reviews even though it is a somewhat pricey dehumidifier.
The last dehumidifier I bought only lasted two or three years so decided to try a more expensive one in the hope it would last longer.
While this unit does lower the humidity in my basement to the desired level and maintain it there; the anti-freeze function does not seem to work properly.
The tempature in my basement throughout the summer was 75 to 80 degrees farenheit yet this unit was constantly going into "thaw out" mode.
It works well besides that; although it spends a LOT of time with the compressor off and the fan on high to de-thaw the non-frozen device.

      Product in service in a 1300 sf shop and performs well at keeping humidity below 50% in the summer months. Unit tends to freeze up in the colder months but still controls humidity.
