Machine works well, our basement is dry, dry for the first time, although a bit warmer...the controls are straight forward and the setup is simple. The condensate pump works fine, up and over an 8 ft wall and across a small room to the drain. The tubing for it is 1/4" od so an adapter to put in the drain required some shopping at the hardware store to find a fit. Overall, very pleased with the machine, glad the purchase was made, the shipping was quick and to the door.

i purchased this for an open 1700sqft basement that generally maintained about a 65% humidity. i placed the unit in the back area with the highest humidity levels and set it to the "comfort" setting which reads 50% on the display. the unit ran non stop for about 2 days. the humidity levels in the basement are now confirmed at around 50-55%. things are much drier and more comfortable.

i was actually surprised it has performed this well as i figured this unit would be a bit small for this application but it has worked well.

the unit is a bit noisy but it moves a good amount of air so that is to be somewhat expected. the pump system works well and easily drains the tank to about a 4' high level going into my washing machine drain from across the room.

The unit appears well built and works as advertised.

I had a defective humidity gauge on my SoleusAir Energy Star 70 Pint Dehumidifier, with Straight Bucket, # DP2-70-03, and thought I'd give this Winix 50-pint a try in my finished/insulated/damp basement (61f, 65% humidity)?-
-It was LOUD, and I could hear it all over the upstairs!
- It ran 24/7 at 50% comfort-level setting, and Only removed 1qt in 3 days (after 1hr startup wait, and 24hr Continuous).
-Bucket was Unwieldy in the Back (hard to grip/remove), and No view port (so I never knew how full, unless powered off/removed- HASSLE!).
~~~~~~~~~

BTW-
I returned the Winix & got another Soleus 70-pint at Lowes (cost a little more, but I was able to purchase 4yr extended warranty!- With all the negative reviews about All brands of dehumidifiers iffy longevity...).
It removes a bucket a day @50% comfort-level, is Much quieter (fan on Hi!), and a front bucket w view port.
You should consider reading the TIPS in my Solueus 70-pint review, no matter what brand you buy!

BTW2-
If you think you might save save money on your electric bill with a 40/50-pint, over a 70-pint, think again!-
I've trialed Several 40-50 pint dehumidifiers in my basement.
All the 40-50s ran 24/7, hardly removed any water, and used only about 200 watts less.
My excellent Soleus 70-pint cycles off/on, less than 50% of the time (keeps humidity down upstairs too/open stairwell), so it actually uses Much less electricity...!

Performed OK, but very loud, for about 14 months. [In regards to sound/loud operations, we had to turn the unit off when we wanted to watch TV;(the unit was 20 feet away, in an adjacent section of the basement).]

Recently, however, the unit stopped working.

Currently, the unit will run for 30 seconds when we turn unit off and on, but never restarts on its own (regardless of moisture setting), and for the last month has not removed any moisture from our basement.

Searching for a new unit now. But will NOT purchase a Winix again.

---------------update------------

My mistake - Learned that I had not adequately cleaned the filter. After a good wash of the filter, the unit began to work effectivly again. Now running well. The unit is still very loud. May cautiously consider a Winix again...

Very efficient unit with great pump. Not too noisy and pump truly gets water up over 15 feet. Sleek and easy display.

I bought this unit 2 years ago and could not be happier!! I use it in my basement and it is effortless to operate as it drains itself. I ran the hose out the window which I leave open a crack just big enough for the small diameter hose to go through. I may drill a hole for it through the side of the wooden window frame. It has my basement bone dry and has made it usable for storage of all sorts of items that I could not have stored down there previously. It does create heat and noise but all dehumidifyers do that and it keeps my basement warm in winter which is an added benefit!!

I dont know why alot of reviews for this unit say that it is very noisey I dont think it is any more noiser than any other dehumidifier I have had. I am very pleased so far with this unit it gives you alot of setting choices. Also the automatic pump works great it allows you to put it just about anywhere. When the pump runs it pushes out alot of water so I know its taking alot of moisture out of the air like it is suppose to. All and all ithink think this unit was a good buy, it fits my needs perfectly.
