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.

        I use it in the basement to prevent mold and deterioation of books and papers that I store there. So far, it works perfectly. I have a discharge hose going into a sump pump hole.

          what i like is the improved hose attachment, it is a big improvement to the other dehumidifier i had. i don't have to worry about breaking the attachment if i need to move it.

            It works well to remove moisture from the air. I hooked up a hose to use its "run continuously" feature. The air filter is easy to remove and clean without having to remove the bucket.

            Comments about Comfort-Aire BHD-701-H Dehumidifier:

            We were looking for a dehumidifier for our basement. After considerable research we thought that Sylvane gave us the best information for the dehumidifier that we needed and the best information regarding their products and service. We just received our Comfort-Aire dehumidifer in less than a week and are thrilled with its performance so far. It is very quite and immediately reduced our humidity level in our basement and crawl space area to the recommended comfort range. We would not hesitate to order from Sylvane again.

            Comments about Comfort-Aire BHD-701-H Dehumidifier:

            I have had 2 of these units. They seem to run very well all year. Then I put it away for the winter and in the spring bring it out and the compresser won't kick in. So I bought a new one as these are supposed to be one of the best available. In the meantime they covered my first one under warranty which gave me a spare. Good thing because the one I bought last year has the compressor out of it now. All I do is turn them off and move them about 20 feet in the fall then get it out and turn it on in the spring. I presume they will warranty the second one I bought but the problem is I have this at my lake house and someone is not there all the time to be sure it's running.

            These things just keep getting better!

            Comments about Comfort-Aire BHD-701-H Dehumidifier:

            Fantastic. Improved design from the already excellent 5-year-old BHD-651 that we still have and use. Easier air filter removal for cleaning (side slot). New translucent water level visibility slot with float on the water collection bucket. Quieter compressor cycles. Easier to see and use control switches on the top instead of on the top front edge. We came back to get a second BHD-651 from Sylvane for our son's college living quarters and we discovered that these things just keep getting better!
