Having said that, I need to give it credit for doing a good job of getting the humidity out of the air quickly. But, because of the heat they put into the house and the amount of electricity they use, they are not worth what we paid for them.
On the negative side, the timer function turns the unit off if it was on, or on if it was off. But the cycle does not repeat. So, if you have it in a sleeping room or a nearby closet it would shut off if you programmed that when you started it, but it would not restart the next day. Or you'd have to turn it off manually. Every day. If you prefer less than 60% humidity, you need to set it daily as well.
I read the manual before purchasing, but manual is wrong about the DD45 returning to its previous state after a power outage. It does not restart, thus a programmable shut off timer is of no help. If you place the dehumidifier in an unsupervised location like a basement, you'd need to frequently verify that it was not stopped by a power outage while you were away. This is a real issue if no one is home an extended time or at a vacation home.
I wrote to DeLonghi Customer Service. The reply "If the unit is turned off the last selected mode would be stored in the unit. Though the setting would be saved the unit would need to be manually turned back on. Once the program is complete it would need to be reprogrammed."
Really like the anti-icing feature
Not too expensive
Not quiet, but not too loud
Uses quite a bit of power. According to my Kill-A-Watt meter:
Idle: 2 Watts
Fan on: ~85 Watts
Compressor on: ~495 Watts
Bucket is a bit difficult to empty and clean
Like others have said, the timer feature needs improvement. It would be so much better if we could set multiple times like a thermostat, but it only allows you to set X hours for the next on/off switch.
My old Hampton Bay dehumidifier is dying, so I might look into a Soleus Air model to compare it to the DeLonghi.
