I bought two, one for each home's basement and was thrilled with the first one. The second one was noisy beyond belief, but when I reported that to the company, they replaced the machine and it is wonderful. It is much quieter and I can no longer hear it on the second floor when it's in the basement.

It is efficient, is absorbing lots of moisture, has dried the basement, has removed the damp "odor" found in basements, and works like a charm.
I love that it is self-sustaining, in that, by attaching a hose, I do not have to empty the machine and if it gets too cold in the basement, it will defrost itself. It will also restart itself after a power outage, which is a plus.

The size is easy to handle and it has made a world of difference in the living quality of the basement.

    The emptying bucket has no indents or handles on the exterior bucket to hold onto so I frequently spill. One time the bucket was full and it continued to run and overflowed.

        Comments about PrimeAire PA7010E 70 Pint Dehumidifier:

        The product runs well but continuously. This generates large amounts of heat within the room. The bucket fills up acter 3-4 hours, meaning it does its job. Would like to hook up a hose to the outside with it, bit have not found the optimal location for the machine to sit yet. It hasn't happened yet, but the plastic covering the control button feels it will peel after a few uses ( not talking about the protect plastic thats removed for shipping).

        Biggest complaint is the bucket for removal. There are no grab handles to remove the bucket from the unit easily. Fear one day I will remove the bucket incorrectly and therefore it will break. The plastic it is constructed off seems a little less than hevy duty.

            Comments about PrimeAire PA7010E 70 Pint Dehumidifier:

            Bought this for my basement which needs a dehumidifier all year round. Fairly quiet (can't hear it running from 1st floor). Doesn't seem to drive the humidity down as low as previous DHs I have had (~ 45% vs. ~35%) despite being a 70 pint DH. Fan runs all the time unfortuneately. Would have gone with one that has a true energy saver (i.e. fan shuts off when humidity level is reached) but this model can operate in low temp. conditions which I absolutely need in winter and most DHs don't have this feature. Bought it a couple of months ago so haven't tested this feature yet. If it can truly work in low temps then I would probably buy again.

              We have had many dehumidifiers in our 160yr old limestone basement, and all failed to perform to expectations. They often ""froze up" and quit working. Thus unit has performed flawlessly and beyond expectations. It is quiet, efficient, compact. Couldn't be happier.

              This unit dried up our basement immediately upon use. We first used it without the hose. It collects so well we had to empty too much. So we connected a hose to the unit and we are very satisfied. It is a very loud machine and it was hard for me to empty the bucket when it filled up. It made such a difference in our basement. The musty smell is gone.
