This is Danby's newest 70 pint energy star dehumidifier. Casing is white. It has a two year warranty, auto de-icer for low temperature operation and is designed for large areas (spec'd for 3,600 sq. ft.). I bought this to replace my 70 pint Frigidaire dehumidifier that failed shortly after the one year warranty expired. The Danby comes with a five foot hose for continuous drain operation but I remove the water manually from the bucket. The water bucket is a little more difficult to remove from the dehumidifier than the Frigidaire. I'm very pleased with the Danby DDR70A2GP 70 Pint Dehumidifier purchase and it works great in my large finished basement.

We bought an earlier model of this unit and were very pleased with it, but noticed the noise level seemed to be getting louder as time went on. It was the sort of thing where we would ask if it sounded louder or not. The unit continued to work so we just shrugged it off. Then one day it stopped working. Since it was just past the warranty time, I took the back off to see if it could be something easy. I noticed if I jiggled a wire, the unit started. So I felt pretty good and tightened the connection as well as I could. I put the shell back on and it ran for a day. So I did more looking and noticed that one plastic stud post for a screw was broken off. Eventually, I noticed that all four stud posts were broken off and this allowed the compressor to vibrate the unit and loosen the connection. I assumed the unit had been damaged during production so I sent Danby the information, including pictures,thinking they would want to know and hoping they might see fit to honor the warranty. They said I should have notified them during the warranty period. (But the unit was working at that time.) I do not know if the unit was damaged during production of if there was a design flaw. So my advice to owners is that they listen for this kind of problem and catch it early if it occurs.

This model has worked in my finished 2400sq ft. basement flawlessly. I can sleep at night without worrying about its status. A very quality unit that I would recommend to anyone. I had a new Frigidaire FAD704DUD 70 Pt. Dehumidifier that I returned because it constantly malfunctioned and the customer service was very weak.

After 30 days this dehumidifier is working great pulling moisture out of the old musty basement at the advertised rate. It seems well built and has a 2 year warranty. The anti-freeze-up feature is a must in a cold damp basement and is working correctly. I like the energy saving feature which turns the fan off and not just the compressor when desired humidity level is reached.

The DDR70A2GP dehumidifier arrived only two days after ordering it (with free shipping), so delivery is swift. I've only used the unit for three days, but so far it is performing well. In particular, the unit does shut off completely (both compressor and fan) after reaching the desired humidity level. Other reviews have stated that the fan stays on continuously regardless of the humidity setting, but on my DDR70A2GP both the fan and compressor shut off when the desired humidity level is reached.

The humidity reading on the unit appears to be accurate, since it agrees well with the humidity reading on the AcuRite 00613A1 indoor humidity monitor I purchased at the same time from Amazon.

One annoyance, five days ago the Amazon price was $239, but today it is $229. Amazon's prices are quite good, but they do change up and down rapidly.

I had another Danby that was very quiet but it stopped dehumidifying and heat from bottom of Danby dehumidifier burned my plastic chair mat. I contacted Danby about it since they had many units recalled due to fire or possible fire. I ordered ANOTHER Danby unit while waiting for Danby to stand behind the unit that caused burns . They DID NOT in spite of the photos I sent them etc,they said my unit wasn't covered under the fire causing units. The new one I keep a close eye on and it is very noisy. I wouldn't buy another Danby mainly due to their poor customer service on the fire issue.

Bought this for the basement when I first moved in and it has performed flawlessly. Simple to operate/maintain. I'm lazy so there's no way I'm going to constantly empty the reservoir. I would highly suggest using a cheap hose, which in my case is a 20' clear vinyl hose, that directly drains into a sump or something similar.

For the reviewers who complained about noise levels, it is a dehumidifier which use a fan and compressor. When they are in use, they make noise. it is unrealistic to expect this level of performance without accompany noise.

I have only had this dehumidifier running for about a month, but so far so good. It is successfully keeping the humidity in my basement in the 50's (50 is ideal), and preventing mold and my tools from rusting. This dehimidifier is designed to run constantly, it doesn't auto turn on and off. It has 2 fan speeds high and low and is relatively quiet, I can't hear it at all while I am on the floor above, and it isn't that noticeable while I am in the basement. It can be configured to collect water in the tray or drain the water through an included hose. I currently have it draining into my washing machine drain, set it and forget it.
