I bought it at Costco for the 90 day return policy. I ordered it online on 2.13.13 and received it today, 2.19.13. Email alerts were right on the mark.

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.

The product was delivered about ten days ago and has been set up and running the past nine days. It is relatively quiet, performs the function of automatic discharge, and maintains an average temperature of just below 50 degrees. The basement is warm and dry. Had been quite humid, so I am hopeful the product will continue its good behavior.

Moderately quiet and easy to use. I haven't bothered to learn how to program it. I just turn it on and empty the bucket when it's full. The bucket doesn't move smoothly and I have to smack it lightly with the heel of my hand to nudge it into place. I don't use the hose to constantly drain it. The hose really isn't very long. Have used it for one season and it's working fine. It has a three-prong plug. It also doesn't generate much heat. My old one did and I utilized the heat to warm the house during Seattle winters. The lack of heat generation would be beneficial in warm, humid climates where additional heat is not wanted.

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's a nice compact unit, very quiet but the fan is continuous and uses extra electricity. I turn mine off but the room humidity goes below 38%. The tank is a bit difficult to remove, must make sure to pull on each side and you need to bend down to remove it.

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.

All dehumidifiers are somewhat noisy and this one is no exception but is more like a low white noise from the fan. Very effective. I put it in an empty bedroom where I hang laundry to dry and I can tell a significant difference in both the humidity in the house and how quickly the cotton clothes dry. It was a good choice for me.

Was not able to get this model locally for some reason. Arrived in good shape. Put it right to work in 30'x40' basement - fills container in about 6 hours. Not quite a year old, works fine.

Has really done a great job keeping the humidity down in our RV. Keeps most windows dry. Might need one for home.

We've been using this unit since July and I really like it. It's relatively quiet and does a great job of taking the moisture out of the air in my basement. I have connected a hose to the unit so it empties directly into the basement drain. I like that it turns itself of and on as needed. I would purchase this unit again and I would recommend it to others.
