This dehumidifier works quite well in small spaces (as designed). I've been using it in a larger bedroom with significant reduction in the humidity. Noise level is less than a window ac unit. There are no frills. Just on or off. Good product overall.

I bought this dehumidifier yesterday and in less than 12 hours it has collected about an inch of water. I used before products that use some crystal balls to absorbed water and these crystal balls get dissolved so you don't know how much is water and how much is the crystal balls. With this product I know this water is all from the room. It is pretty quiet and the price is not bad at all. I am planning on buying additional ones for the other rooms in the house since I live in a very humid city in Cartagena, Colombia.

I bought this dehumidifier for my small bathroom. I live in upstate NY and the summers can be very humid. I've had this unit for a few weeks and the humidity has been moderate. Thus far, it has pulled some water out of the air - not a tidal wave, but enough so that I notice the difference. In fact, I hand washed some clothes yesterday and hung them over the shower curtain rod to dry - usually this process would not be complete for at least 1/2 day, but within 3 hours, my clothes were dry! I was impressed.

The unit is bare bones - just off and on. It's nice to look at and is reasonably quiet - the sound of the toilet tank refilling after a flush is enough to drown out the sound. As another review noted, the cord is long, but it has this transformer thing about 1/2 way, which is annoying, but not enough so for me to give send it back. The maximum capacity is about 300 ml (just over a cup) in 24 hours, and the "bucket" holds 2 or 3 times that, so it will probably take a week or more to fill up at the rate it pulls humidity out of the air.

So if you're looking for a mini dehumidifier, for a mini space, at a mini price, this one is a good choice. I have a large dehumidifier in my basement, and that serves a very different purpose and dries out a much larger and more humid space. This small unit just makes my bathroom feeling less humid in the summer, so that when I come out of the shower, I'm not hit with heavy humid air. I think that it would probably work well in a closet too, but certainly not in a larger space.

I'm very happy with my purchase!

I bought this for a small bathroom that's exposed to the outside through a venting pipe through the roof but otherwise has no ventilation in response to a buildup of mold. Since cleaning the bathroom (again) and turning on this dehumidifier after each shower, the mold has finally stopped returning.

Between 55 and 62% humidity, it took six weeks for this tiny thing to fill. What really chaps my hide is that the power converter in the middle of the cord measures about 3"x4.5"x7", which totally negates the compactness of the unit for me, and pretty much defeats the purpose of the long cord. It's two units to think about when placing it it in the tight spaces for which it's purposed. In short, it's ineffective, and much bigger than I expected.

We have this on all the time in our bathroom in a coastal town. It fills up consistently in just over a week. Emptying the bucket is super simple. I also like the handle to be able to move it around easily. The noise it makes can be somewhat annoying- we close the door to the bathroom so we can sleep at night. The lights would also be annoying if they were on in the bedroom.

But the bottom line for us is that it works in taking moisture out of the air, so we approve.

Update 7/2012: And... it stopped working after we used it for a year. Not sure what the problem is, but turning it on does nothing. It could have been mischief by our kids, or it could be that the product couldn't handle constant use for more than a year. We'll consider buying another to replace the broken one since we were happy with it while it ran and it is relatively inexpensive. But I'd like it to last longer to get more than three stars.

I received a defective unit, as it sounds like many others have. When I plugged it in, the green light turned on and it got quite warm at the top but there was literally no sound. I thought this was suspicious so I started fiddling with it and realized something inside was so loose it was clanking around! I took out the water container and looked up into the cavity and saw that the fan blade had completely fallen off. I suppose this must have happened in shipping, as the thing is not secure at all.

I figured I would try to fix it before wasting my shipping fee to send it back, so UNPLUGGED the dehumidifier from the power COMPLETELY. I got a standard philips screw driver. On the outside, there look to be 6 screws. I unscrewed them and tried to pull the back off, but it seemed stuck towards the top end. I realized if you lift the handle up, the blue grill can be pushed in slightly at 2 tabs and then pushed up and out. After you remove the blue grill, you will see 2 more screws to remove. I removed them and the front completely detaches from the back quite easily. HOWEVER, BE CAREFUL because there are wires that connect the lighting indicator on the front to the electronics held in the back portion.

When I opened up the dehumidifier, I easily saw that the fan blade had come off. I put the fan blade back on the spindle and it was held in place magnetically. You can tell because there is a magnetic pull that pulls the fan blade into its proper place. To test it, I put the water container back in place and left the thing open a little. Plugged it in and flipped the switch and the fan started running normally (making NORMAL FAN NOISE). I closed everything back up and now it is running, hopefully properly.

Still have yet to see how much water it collects. But bad marks for coming defective.

This is perfect for a small space, we have a normal 1950's giant walk out basement with two back bedrooms for guests, the first couple of years it was hard to keep it dry for guests. With the addition of these little devices the rooms are kept dry and mustless!

You can not believe how much moisture comes out of my walk in closet!! This works great! Easy to empty as well.

I purchased this at a discount store for 34.99 and liked the Bionair brand since I bought a room air cleaner by the same company and it works really well. I moved to a 2nd floor apt. and have a large window air conditioner. I placed the dehumidifier on a table by the air conditioner and within 2 days it had about 2 inches of water in it. I emptied it and we had 3 days of 93 degree weather and after 3 days of this hot and humid weather, it had about 4 inches of water in it. I don't understand the bad reviews and why the other people aren't getting any water collected in the unit. Either they got a defective unit or they don't have any humidity in the room. I would return the unit if I was them and get another one. Granted this unit is not made for large spaces but I had read that an air conditoner doesn't have to work as hard if you have a dehumidifier. It is really extremely simple and easy with a indicator light that shuts off if full and handy handle on top and easy out water container. I would purchase more of these if I had the funds at the moment and put one in the bedroom.
