    Purchased it 7/2013 and never owned a Danby product before. I had owned 2 other brand name dehumidifiers and they both had issues, recalls, and or failed prematurely. I never heard of Danby until I started searching. They had the best warranty so I figured I would give them a try. I liked the styling, price, and overall functionality, and that I could order it online and have it delivered in 1-2 days. The only thing I don't really like is that the fan runs continuously, even when the compressor is not running. So it's not the best thing for occupied spaces. However, I run it downstairs in my workshop so it works out great as the fan keeps the air circulated; I think that might be why it runs all the time - it may be designed to keep a constant accurate sample of the air so the humidity can be regulated better to the set point. Oh, almost forgot ... I also liked the easy to hook up external drain/hose that you can route to a drain or sump pump, that is optional to use AND that the optional hose IS included with the dehumidifier.

    The dehumidifier is running constantly to fight to keep our humidity level in our basement at the recommended 50%. I have yet to find a cost-effective product to easily handle the moisture in our basement. I expect it to wear out before the extended warranty so I hope it was worth the extra money! I will say that it is working well to remove mold and mildew and damp/moldy smells in the basement. :)

    Comments about Danby DDR60A2GP 60 Pint Dehumidifier:

    My Danby sits in my large unfinished basement dealing with seasonal humidity. This is the first time I have used a humidifier, purchasing it after moving to this town from a different climate. I couldn't be more pleased with the product. The "basement smell" that occurs during periods of high humidity here is completely gone. I cannot hear the Danby's fan upstairs at all. The 18" household fan I had initially tried before realizing that what I needed was a humidifier, used to be annoyingly audible especially at night while trying to sleep. All in all, I couldn't be more pleased with this product.

      With in 5 days my basement became dry, did not expect such quick results. My neighbor was so impressed he ordered the same model for himself.

        Comments about Danby DDR60A2GP 60 Pint Dehumidifier:

        My old dehumidifier died after 11 years of continuous service in my very damp basement. This one works even better and keeps the temperature nice and even. It's gotten so comfortable down there I'm considering finishing off the basement!

            Packages arrived soon after ordering. The Dehumifiers work great in a large floorplan house.

            Comments about Danby DDR60A2GP 60 Pint Dehumidifier:

            We have had our Danby 60 pint dehumidifier for a few weeks now and are very pleased. We purchased it to decrease the moisture in our finished basement and it is doing the job nicely. It is a little loud so we run it only at night. It is on a timer so it shuts off during the day. We don't know how durable it is yet, since we have only been using it for a few weeks.

                      Had a small amount of humidity in bsmt and the Danby did the trick. It is a little heavier than I expected, but not a problem.
