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.

    It does a good job of taking moisture out of the air. Biggest negative is that the fan does NOT shut off once the desired humidity is reached.

              Has been great so far. We had a problem with mold in the house and water running down our windows in the winter. So far, no mold or water on the windows. It really feels great in the house now!

              Machine has delivered all that was advertised and I've had it now for two years. While it could be quieter, it would be better if the fan would turn off when the desired humidity level is achieved.

                Comments about Danby DDR5009REE Dehumidifier:

                I purchased this unit to replace a 5 year old dehumidifier I ran in my unfinished basement. Now that I've finished my basement I wanted a better unit. My older dehumidifier seemed to have lost its ability to turn on and off based on humidity, so I hooked it up to an external timer and had it run for 3 two-hour periods per day. This Danby unit has a digital readout, so I can set my humidity setting and see what the actual humidity is in the room. What a change of pace from operating a dehumidifier without knowing what the humidity was. My only issue is that the Danby unit doesn't turn "off" when the desired humidity setting is reached: the fan runs continously. This is obviously good for basement air circulation, but I'm used to having dehumidifiers turn off when their work is done. I do like this unit. Recommend the manufacturer consider having the fan turn off when not needed.

                  Sorry I didn't get larger unit only because I have to empty it twice a day. Used to have a 65 pint unit of another brand. This 55 pint unit works just as well in reducing humidity in basement. The only thing I wish is that it had an automatic restart after programming it to run for a certain time. My last unit was able to be programmed to run 3 or 6 hours or continuously. I miss that option.
