Every once in a while a special product comes along that delights....

... and this isn't it. It sounds great (Low power consumption, 46-pints-per-24-hours, UV to kill germs and/or mold), but just doesn't perform. Possibly mine was defective, but it ran 24x7 and managed to remove a few pints per day and was never able to get the humidity down to my desired 50%. I wondered why it wasn't EnergyStar rated at only 440 watts for a 46-pint dehumidifier; the answer seems to be because 46 pints is an extreme exaggeration. After replacing this unit with an EnergyStar-rated Frigidaire, I was able to reach my desired humidity level overnight. Better to run a 1000-watt unit on occasion than to run a 440-watt unit 24x7 and not reach your desired result.
The other issue is the drain hose output... I tried leveling the unit and shimming it, I was never able to get the water to go anywhere but the removable bucket.
