I would rate the noise, EXCELLENT. It is very quiet. I can only wonder how that will change over time. I've had a LG for about 4 years now. It still sucks the moisture out of the air, but, it is LOUD. I'm going to set it up in the garage.
I would rate the set up as Excellent. Using the controls was a snap.
The reason I'm only giving it 3 stars, instead of 4, is that the humidity meter shows a much lower level of humidity then my RMR203HGA Oregon Scientific Temperature and Humidity Station shows.by about 6 or 7%. This shuts the machine off too soon when using the auto shut off. I'm not overly concerned about this because I can set the auto shut off to a lower humidity to compensate. But if you don't mind this one little issue, then, this is a machine for you.
Frankly, the big plus is the low noise level, even on Turbo speed. We use it in our living room, small house built in the 50s with no insulation and we live in a damp climate. We don't use a dehumidifier in the summer, but, in the winter the condensation on the windows is remarkable. Using a dehumidifier clears up the condensation quickly.
I will write an update down the road. If the humidity meter isn't too annoying, which it probably would be for the perfectionist, I expect to raise this to 4 stars. I never give 5 stars. There is always room for improvement.
Update 3.6.13 - Still the only issue is the humidity reading. I don't know which is off, but, it is only 6 or 7 points. We are very pleased at how quiet it is. We run it in the living room. It does not interrupt TV or conversations. If turned up high then it is a little, but by no means an annoyance. I still rate this purchase high.
I have a large turtle tank for my red-earred slider. It spews moisture into the house and encourages mold growth. The Whynter dehumidifier helps tremendously.
It doesn't take long for the dehumidifier to bring back the room humidity you set. After you set the humidity level you desire, the read out will display the present humidity.
I highly recommend.

The second one seems to be working OK. The first one didn't work at all, and contacting Whynter is a waste of time. Amazon, however, handled it correctly.Published on September 21, 2013 by stephen
