I spent a night reviewing dehumidifiers at Consumer Reports, amazon, and elsewhere to understand what I should use for a damp basement after the 2010 east coast winter. I realized, finally, by plowing through all the hype, that the "70 pints" does not refer to the volume of the bucket, but the rate at which the dehumidifier can remove water vapor from the air: 70 pints per day, but the buckets are all the same, about 2 gallons. That needs to be made clearer in the review and advertising. For a block-wall basement, with French drains, in an area with high water table, or for any room where liquid water appears, you need the highest rate so the unit cycles on and off. Otherwise, you seriously waste power.
This unit (Frigidaire FAD704TDP) was not reviewed by Consumer Reports, but by others who were concerned with drying rates and noise. This unit is almost silent! It filled a 2-gal bucket in just a few hours in a 40x60 foot basement with no liquid water but with damp block foundation. Overnight, the difference was remarkable; in two days time, it was dry and liveable without further odors. It cycles in 1-3 hours, depending on rainfall, when set to 40% humidity, and I would suppose that higher or lower settings may be needed at other times of year.
I built a clear vinyl hose from parts at hardware store, and piped the water to the small sump attached to the house HVAC. The unit had to be placed on an 8" box (wooden), with casters to keep it from rolling off. Being able to see the hose water was important as grunge will appear; when not hosed out, this eventually blocked the hose and defeated the dehumidifier. The built-in air filter is not designed to remove mold spores to prevent this problem.
A very good product, confidently recommended.

I really liked this dehumidifier for the season and a half that it lasted. I used it in a basement and connected a drain hose for continuous operation. It had no trouble keeping my basement at 50 - 60% humidity and I really never had to do anything except check and clean the filter every few weeks. I felt the noise level was reasonable for a basement. The bucket was a little tricky to remove, but since I had it hooked up to a hose that didn't bother me too much.

Unfortunately it seems like no one can build a dehumidifier that lasts anymore. This one didn't fail completely, but it appeared that something went wrong with the humidistat or electronics. After the problems started the unit always displayed the humidity as 95% and ran continuously. I checked the hose and there was still plenty of moisture being removed so I think the compressor was still going strong. Since I had an extended warranty (I bought this from HH Gregg) I returned for repair but they decided it was too expensive to fix and now I must replace it. I may take a chance on another Frigidaire, or perhaps the Soleus 70 pint model.

I am giving this three stars because although it worked well at first, I think an appliance like this should last for 5 years at a minimum, and also if something does go wrong these should be repairable. That energy star rating means nothing if there are a stream of these headed to a landfill because they don't last.

UPDATE 06-02-2010: I decided to go with this unit as a replacement for my previous Frigidaire 70 pint unit. Just a warning, the unit I got looks slightly different... more like this one: I originally thought this might be old stock, but the date of manufacture was 3/10 so I must be mistaken. Hopefully my warranty will transfer because I have a feeling I will be going through this all again in a couple years.

I bought the 70pint version last year after my old dehumidifier died and I started getting mold and mildew in my basement. I have a 200 year old home with a basement approximately 5 feet below ground depth so fairly damp. This unit's been great so far and I love the fact you can set the humidity level (I keep at 50%). With all the rain we had in the northeast this past March it's been running steady for over 4 weeks but without issue. I have it drain direct to my sump.

I purchased this to replace the Haier HDN455 45-Pint Capacity Mechanical Control Dehumidifier that I purchased here about 2 years ago for $120. The Haier replaced a Soleus of the same capacity that did not work out of the box. As a result of poor longevity, I am avoiding both manufacturers and decided to give Frigidaire a try.

First off, this is a beautiful unit that is thoughtfully designed. Easy to get out of the box (just remove packing straps & lift the box) and extraordinarily intuitive to operate. I currently have it on CO (continuous operation) as recommended ... and after running 12 hours I can clearly notice a difference in my basement. Wow. Very impressive. I will change it to 50% or so in 3-4 days (again, as recommended).

There are a few features that are especially nice. It has a filter clean reminder light that goes on after 250 hours of operation. In addition, the water bucket has a built-in handle. It can be set up for continuous drain but it will return to bucket operation by simply removing the hose. Finally, a low fan speed setting is available and is QUIET.

However, there is room for improvement, imo. The electric cord is 6' but is far too short. The exhaust and drain are on the same side, which doesn't make sense -- they should be on opposite sides. A cheap, plastic hose is not included for continuous drain and installing a garden hose remnant is difficult (and with a brass coupling on a plastic thread, dangerous to snap off). Small changes to to this would have made this a 5* purchase for me. Nevetheless, I am happy with this dehumidifier, although it cost more than I intended to spend. It better lasts for YEARS ... if not, I will update.
