    This dehumidifier is awesome! We had just moved into an older apartment in Georgia in June and were sick of going to sleep in wet sheets! This dehumidifier is amazing! We've had it for several months with no issues. We've gotten the best results when we move it from room to room because our apartment has almost no circulation. Not only does it dehumidify as promised, our power bill is not affected by the constant use of this dehumidifier (we've run several experiments, including a control with several weeks of not running it at all). We recommend this product to anyone!

    Have used another brand of 40 pint dehumidifier in the past and really liked it until the motor got VERY noisy. This 45 pint machine is quiet and seems efficient but requires MANY more empties of the tank than the previous one and used in the same room and the same environment. I think the 45 pint capacity for this machine is misleading. The 40 pint tank I previously had was self-contained, easy to remove and empty and didn't have to be emptied (under most conditions) more than once every day or 2! I have to empty this tank at least 2-3 times a day. I've only had this machine for a few weeks but, so far, I'm satisfied with the machine....except for the frequent emptying.

      Arrived on time in "new" condition. Put it to work immediately in the basement. It has been working all summer. Does a great job in getting the humidity out of a large basement area.

      I went through a couple other dehumidifiers before settling on this one--because it really does the job, with a minimum of noise.

      Comments about Danby DDR45A3GP 45 Pint Dehumidifier:

      I am very pleased with this device. I did a lot of research and decided on the Danby 45 since it seemed to have a quiet operation and for the small size of the device it had a large capacity. It is very effective on drying out my 2,000 square feet ranch (no basement)home. We did not have a huge humity problem, but my husband and I never agree on the temperature in our home. I want it warmer and he wants it cooler. So I decided this could help in making the air quality more comfortable during the summer since we live in the south. It has definitley helped the marriage. My only drawback is the noise. But I think no matter what any dehumidifier is going to be noisey. What actually is good about this one is the constant running fan. When the condenser comes one you do not notice it- plus I know it is constantly sampling the air for the humidy levels. So the device (though it is loud) is more like a fan white noise in the home. A recommendation for improvement would be a handle at the top of the device to move it around from one room to the next; there are hand holds on either side- it is just awkward so I tend to roll it.

            why do they always put the Model, Serial number on the very back of the machine so that we have to read it carefully, if at all, from the side???

              Comments about Danby DDR45A3GP 45 Pint Dehumidifier:

              I purchased this Danby dehumidifier for my partially finished basement (about 1200 sq ft). Even though it has not been warm enough in Michigan to require a dehumidifier yet, I have been running this on and off for about 3 weeks to test it out. So far, so good. Even though the basement has been dry with the heat on, the Danby has been removing moisture from the air. The controls are easy to use, and the bucket is easy to remove and empty (nice sturdy handle on the bucket). Also, the fan is much quieter than on my old dehumidifier. The service and shipping from Sylvane was very good. Overall, I am very pleased. The only reason that I gave the product 4 stars is that I have noticed that today's dehumidifiers only tend to last 2 years or so. We will see if this one stands the test of time.

                Comments about Danby DDR45A3GP 45 Pint Dehumidifier:

                I bought the Danby 70 pint dehumidifier for our home last year - it was large and very cumbersome to transfer from room to room so we decided to use it in our basement. The 70 pint unit has always worked great... our humidity levels are between 45-50% and our basement never has that musty smell anymore and we don't have a mold problem either. We love it so much, we decided to buy the Danby 45 pint unit for our upstairs. Even though it's smaller, it does the same great job. No mold, no musty smells and our whole home feels warmer too. The smaller unit is a lot easier to move around; however, it would be great if there was a handle on it so we're not bending over and leaning on the machine just to push it from room to room. It would be easy to install a handle on the back of the machine - something like on luggage where you can pull it up when you need it. Overall it's a fantastic machine - we've never had a problem with it and it's extremely easy to use.
