We are Innkeepers and bought the Danby for the laundry room. We have only had it for a couple of weeks but so far it works great for our purpose, and is easy to use.

One thing about it that is not posted anywhere that I noticed is that the dehumidifier emits a noticeable amount of heat which can add a few degrees of temperature to the room its being used in, particularly if its a small room.

The added heat is a plus for our purpose, but may be problematic for other types of use. Also, although the machine is relatively quiet I wouldn't say that it is quiet enough for the bedroom.

All considered its a good value and I would buy another one, that is if I doesn't break down in the next few months.

Comments about Danby DDR50A2GP 50 Pint Dehumidifier:

We use this unit in our finished basement. It replaced an older GE unit that was loud enought that we needed to turn it off when watching TV.

This unit is much quietier and we can leave it on all the time. Note that the fan on it runs continuously; however, aside from the sound of air moving, its nearly silent - even at high fan speed. Setting it to low speed, its not noticable. So far, we leave it in the high speed and it works OK.

The air flow path pulls from the front and exhausts out the top. This would work great in a single room; however, for our basement, it would have been better to pull in one side and exhaust out the otherside since that would create an air circulation throught the basement. That being said, it still gets the basement dry.

The water pan is a bit fussy getting in/out; however, once out, the handle makes it quite easy to carry when dumping. When emptying the bucket, first turn the unit off and wait a min or so for the water to fully drain into the bucket otherwise there will be a small amount of water (<1/4 cup) which will drain out and onto the floor.

Compared to our previous (and other units we've heard), this is very quiet and we're pretty happy with it.

            When mold starting growing in my basement after a lot of rain, I got nervous about whether I could beat it! It's amazing how much water my de-humidifier has taken out of the air already so I'm going to keep it going just to see how long I get this amount of moisture out of my basement.
