    I had a Kenmore for almost 20 years that did a great job, but could be heard from the basement to my bedroom overhead despite ample insulation.

    Next I got a LG that was totally unreliable by the time I had had it for 8 months. So my desires were for a quiet, efficient and durable dehumidifier. I have had my Danby DDR30A2GP for three weeks, so it is much too soon to know about durability. However, it is quiet and effective.

    I am in a different home now in the mountains out from Asheville, NC. My property is covered in trees, therefore it is very shady and we have had record rain this year, making it really damp inside my house before my unit arrived -- this Danby was backordered, but Consumer Reports had recommended it, so I wanted the best odds on good performance possible.

    After the expense of the move, my budget would only allow me to purchase the 30 pint for the entire downstairs of 950 sq. ft. It keeps the humidity between 52-55 in the large living/ dining room in which it is located, and at a steady 60 in the bath which is furthest room from it. The guest bedroom and the exercise room are in between.

    I am asking a lot of my Danby and it is delivering, as I have the central air thermostat located upstairs set for the heat to go on if the temperture goes below 66 degrees upstairs -- leaving the downstairs cooler.

    I have read reviews that complained about water leaking from this model onto the floor if you aren't able to use the hose. I empty my unit twice daily at 7A & 7P and have not had an overflow problem despite how wet it has been. What I did find is that if you remove the bucket to empty it immediately after turning the unit off, by the time you return water that had been condensed, but had not yet reached the bucket, will drip onto the floor. I absorb that water each time after emptying the bucket with about 1/4th of a washcloth before reinserting the bucket -- no big deal.

    If this Danby last for a number of years, I will be a completely satisfied customer and give it the fifth star.

    Fan Never Turns Off --EVER!

    This has a useless electronic panel that allows you to set the desired humidity but it does not turn off--ever! I've used dehumidifiers for the past 30 years I have never heard of...Read complete review

    This has a useless electronic panel that allows you to set the desired humidity but it does not turn off--ever! I've used dehumidifiers for the past 30 years I have never heard of this.

    I bought this to replace my beloved and ancient Frigidaire dehumidifier. It has a humidity setting, I set it to 40%, reached that level and the thing just runs and runs. It makes no sense. If you don't care about electricity use, or an appliance continually running for no reason, or fan noise 24/7, this will work for you.

                Use this in my workshop that is about 400 square feet. The noise doesn't bother me. I have a vent free gas heater in there that adds a lot of moisture, without the dehumidifier my humidity is around 80% I keep it set at 50% and it holds that level just fine. This product does exactly what I bought it for.
