      Normally do not write reviews....good or bad. But I have to comment on this Danby dehumidifier. I have gone through and been buying dehumidifiers for over 20 years. I did my research this time and by others writing reviews convinced me to try this product. I'm so glad I did. I Love the features and my finished basement area has never been drier. It's amazing and I like the fact that the fan in the unit runs constantly when on, even when it's not actually removing humidity from the air.

      This circulates the air and keeps the area even drier. It's fairly quiet (for a dehumidifier) and has easy to use digital features. If this unit proves to have a longer life span than most dehumidifiers I have had in the past.(most malfunctioned after a year or so). The quality looks great and I high hopes it will last longer than most. Time will tell. If so, I will never buy any other brand other than Danby again. Here's hoping!

      When my 3 year old Soleus died, my research pointed me to the Danby DDR45E Dehumidifier. I liked the humidity and temp digital readouts and the ease of use. The two issues I had were 1) the compressor and fan were too loud in the basement where we used it and 2) when removing the tank to be emptied, a stream of water ran down the back inside and down onto the bottom and table (about 1/2 pint).

      The Danby did an excellent job of water removal, just couldn't adjust to the noise level and the water draining after the tank was removed and returned it.

            Comments about Danby DDR45E Dehumidifier:

            It arrive on time but with a small crack in the back. Which appeared to have been caused by the over tightening of a screw. Also the tank water level indicator was missing. I had already thrown away the box so i decided to use the dehumidifier as is. I'm not happy about this, but I need to use a dehum right away.

                  Using in basement. It should have an automatic shutoff when it reaches the desired humidity like the 10 year old machine I left in my former home. I have to try two or three times to make the tank seat properly every time I empty it.

                    Comments about Danby DDR45E Dehumidifier:

                    Used near the basement back door, where I happen to watch TV. I have to turn it off when I'm watching TV, but leave it on the rest of the time. To turn off the fan (the noisiest part of the device) one has to turn off the dehumidifier entirely (which makes sense if you know how these things work). Seems to work effectively.

                    It's a little odd that it displays the temperature when you really can't raise or lower it. And it's placement, adjacent to the humidity control display, something you can adjust. Aside from that user interface observation, the dehumidifier works fine.

                      This dehumidifier came securely packed with no damage or missing parts. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. My favorite feature is the shut off timer. To date is has operated efficiently and has a "hum" that is easy to ignore during the day and provides an even sound at night that is easy to fall asleep to.

                        Comments about Danby DDR45E Dehumidifier:

                        The product is used in a finished basement. It works great for lowering the humidity. The only thing I dislike about the product is that the fan keeps running after the set humidity has been reached. I also own a different Danby where the fan shuts off when the set humidity is reached. The fan does shut off when the bucket is full of water. I haven't used the timer feature.

                        Comments about Danby DDR45E Dehumidifier:

                        I've had our new Danby DDR45E dehumidifier about a week now. It is much quieter than our old dehumidifier (different brand) that recently wore out its compressor. The quiet is important because we operate it at night right outside our bedroom. I'm so glad to have a well-functioning dehumidifier again, because several years ago we had mildew in our lower level and what a huge job to get rid of it, ugh. Since then I've been religious about measuring relative humidity in our home and keeping it within a safe zone. I like the Danby's electronic settings and readings; they're very clear and simple. The choice between collecting water in the tank or letting it drain out the hose is perfect for us as well. Right now, since summer has become quite humid where we live, I am watching (with the great feature of the strip of window into the tank!) how quickly it's collecting water and enjoying the satisfying sensations of pulling out the tank, picking it up by its convenient handle, and emptying it into the nearby bathroom tub. If I let it sit a couple minutes after turning it off, there's no problem with spilling water on the floor. In a couple weeks we'll be away on vacation and then I plan to simply put the Danby into the tub and set it up with the hose so that no one needs to come in and maintain it for us while we're gone. The only puzzling thing is that the Danby's built-in hygrometer reads a very different number than the one on the wall a few feet away, and I'm not sure which is more accurate.

                        Service and delivery comments:

                        Delivery was earlier than I expected, and the packaging was very careful. Everything was in perfect condition. I love the recycled packaging material--thin strips of cardboard--ingenious!

                        The noise level is no more than a large fan. Operation is easy.
