I purchsed the product as a replacement. We have an unfinished block wall basement which gets very damp in the summer. The previous unit ran constantly and not very efficient. The Danby dehumidifier is great. The unit is attractive, streamline and could be used anywhere. Shipping was super, from GA. to PA. in two days. The unit was packed very well for shipment and ready to use out of the box. Setup of the unit was simple, remove from shipping carton, remove the protective tape (used for shipping) from the unit, put the batteries in the remote, plug the unit into a wall outlet, set the desired humidity level, place the enclosed hose in to a floor drain and that is it. If you do not have a floor drain there is a self contained reservoir which has an automatic shutoff when the container is full. The Danby has the energy saving feature, operates quietly. When I first installed the unit the humidity in the basement was 77%. I set the unit at 55% humidity and within one day the humidity was at the desired level. Another feature of the unit is after you set the unit for the desired humidity level after 5 seconds it desplays the actual humidity level in the room, so at all times you can see what the actual humidity level is in the room. This model dehumidifier can remove 50 pints of moisture in a twenty four hour period. The basement in which I have placed the unit is approx. 30' x 40' with 8' ceiling. This is a midsize unit and can handle the average room quite easily. Danby also sells a larger unit and also one which is for smaller spaces. Whatever the need I believe Danby has a dehumidifier for most applications and the service from Sylvane is exceptional. I am well pleased with my purchse and believe I received an excellent product for the price.

UNIT NEVER SHUTS OFF RUNS EVEN WHEN COMPRESSOR IS OFF I BELIEVE THIS IS AN ENERGY WASTER. ONLY SOLUTION IS TO HAVE THE UNIT SHUT ON AND OFF WHILE CONNECTED TO AN EXTERNAL TIMER WHICH IS AN EXTRA COST IN ITSELF THEN ADD THE RUN TIME AND THERE YOU HAVE IT.

I bought this humidifier for the basement to replace an old one. Set it up, and it didn't
work from the start. Not one drop of water collected. The return was very simple.

Comments about Danby DDR5009REE Dehumidifier:

The empty indicator lights don't always come on and it doesn't always automatically turn off. I'll finally notice that it hasn't gurgled in a while and that it's been running for a long time, so I'll check it and sure enough the tanks are empty.
It keeps main part of house humidified well and the area is about 1450 sq. ft.

Comments about Danby DDR5009REE Dehumidifier:

Your unit is excellent with one notable exception: the condensate tank is a bit awkward to remove and dump and reinstall. I own a dehumidifier, made by a competitior, whose condensate tank ops are much better.

    Comments about Danby DDR5009REE Dehumidifier:

    I used this in my classroom to lower the humidity, which during the months of August until November were in the 70% ranges. This little machine did it's job amazingly! I could have not asked for anything better. I recommended it to all the teachers with the same issues. The shipping was also fast. It arrived very quickly and worked straight out the box. No hassle, no problems.

              The unit functions very well in reducing humidity and is very easy to use.
              However, the motor is getting louder over time. I cannot imagine it would be
              worth the money to ship it back for repairs. The unit is about 6 months old and I use it about every 3 days.
