I had a Kenmore for almost 20 years that did a great job, but could be heard from the basement to my bedroom overhead despite ample insulation.

Next I got a LG that was totally unreliable by the time I had had it for 8 months. So my desires were for a quiet, efficient and durable dehumidifier. I have had my Danby DDR30A2GP for three weeks, so it is much too soon to know about durability. However, it is quiet and effective.

I am in a different home now in the mountains out from Asheville, NC. My property is covered in trees, therefore it is very shady and we have had record rain this year, making it really damp inside my house before my unit arrived -- this Danby was backordered, but Consumer Reports had recommended it, so I wanted the best odds on good performance possible.

After the expense of the move, my budget would only allow me to purchase the 30 pint for the entire downstairs of 950 sq. ft. It keeps the humidity between 52-55 in the large living/ dining room in which it is located, and at a steady 60 in the bath which is furthest room from it. The guest bedroom and the exercise room are in between.

I am asking a lot of my Danby and it is delivering, as I have the central air thermostat located upstairs set for the heat to go on if the temperture goes below 66 degrees upstairs -- leaving the downstairs cooler.

I have read reviews that complained about water leaking from this model onto the floor if you aren't able to use the hose. I empty my unit twice daily at 7A & 7P and have not had an overflow problem despite how wet it has been. What I did find is that if you remove the bucket to empty it immediately after turning the unit off, by the time you return water that had been condensed, but had not yet reached the bucket, will drip onto the floor. I absorb that water each time after emptying the bucket with about 1/4th of a washcloth before reinserting the bucket -- no big deal.

If this Danby last for a number of years, I will be a completely satisfied customer and give it the fifth star.

hawaii apt. does not allow air conditioners, after a rain shower dew point is 75% or higher on a normal day dew point is at 65% my mistake was since i purchased without a actual display of unit and its workings . i dreamed of cool colorado mountain air blowing out instead its hot palm springs air . so one way win and other way lose. i like to return item due to the fact that new apt. will have air conditioning.

We've owned it for several months now, although we have no need to run it in the winter. It performed very well last summer in lowering the humidity in our basement bedroom significantly even though the air temperature was only in the low- to mid-60s.

            Comments about Danby DDR30A2GP 30 Pint Dehumidifier:

            I use this in my 13' x 13' apt with an 8' loft to keep humidity levels below 50%. Until I get a tiny dryer I've been air drying my clothes and if I run this all night set at 30% the night of washing, I'm at 45% in the morning and my clothes are dry. With the fan on high and when the cooling element kicks in it can get a little loud next to my cot but with earplugs in it blocks the sound of freight trucks at 5 am! Super plus. Fan on low it's barely noticeable three feet from me if I tune it out. The air feels cleaner which may be the filter doing it's job. I also live in an area where it rains nearly constantly (southern coastal Alaska) and have never experienced this level of .. Air awesomeness. I will use the unit occasionally after I get a dryer because it creates a pleasant atmosphere and keeps my home mold free.
