Improve the comfort level of your home with Danby 70-Pint portable dehumidifier. This energy efficient unit operates quietly on 2 fan speeds (high/low) in rooms up to 4,500 square feet. It has a smart dehumidifying function that allows the unit to automatically control humidity by factoring in ambient room temperature. If the unit shuts off unexpectedly due to a power outage, it will automatically restart with the previous function settings when power is restored. The automatic de-icing system ensures the coils are always ice-free while the low temperature feature allows the system to continue to operate at temperatures as low as 41F. Maintenance is easy with the removable air filter and direct-drain system. Plus, Danby 70-Pint dehumidifier has four built-in caster wheels making it easy and convenient to move the unit from one room to another.

* The unit has a real quality feel to it and certainly gives the impression of being a premium unit.
* Performs really well. This unit can drop the humidity in my 1500 sqft basement by 10+ percentage points in just a few hours. Even when it gets to be the humid depths of summer, I'm sure this will have no trouble keeping my basement air dry,.
* The fan, even on high speed, is relatively quiet. It is certainly quieter than my Kenmore was; however, since I use this in the basement, I may not be the best to judge this. In other words, if you had this running in your bedroom, I doubt you would describe it as "quiet".
* Energy efficient. Obviously this is EnergyStar compliant. Using my Kill-A-Watt meter, I see it uses 1 watt while it is in standby mode monitoring the air humidity (i.e., when the compressor and fan are not running). When the compressor and fan are running, it seems to average about 550 watts.
* The direct draining connector is super easy to access and a garden hose easily and snugly connects to it. No problem with leaks so far. (This is gravity draining only, the unit does not have a pump).
* The unit has a two year warranty. Now there is a catch to this and that is that it is a carry-in warranty. You can search on the Danby site to see the nearest carry-in location. I also purchased a three year Amazon extended warranty to extend my overall warranty to five years. Hopefully I won't need it!
* Like many dehumidifiers these days, this unit does have an auto-defrost mode when the temperature drops below 41 degrees. My basement should never get that cold so I don't anticipate using this feature.
* All dehumidifiers that I have used in the past have exhausted the air upwards while this unit exhausts air out the left side of the unit. This makes no difference to me, but it could matter to you depending upon where you are using this unit.
* The unit has a "smart humidity" option where it determines the appropriate humidity based on the air temperature. This may be useful for some folks, but I don't use this feature as I know what target humidity I want in my basement.
* The unit also has a countdown timer feature that can be used to set a number of hours for the unit to run for (up to 24), or you can set it while off to turn on in a set number of hours (again, up to 24). You can even use both at once. This is a fine feature, but since you have to set it each time you use it, I don't find it all that useful. If you need to have it turn on and off at the same time each day, you would be better off hooking it up to an external appliance timer since the unit does retain settings and will automatically turn back on after a power outage.
* I don't use the water reservoir, but it strikes me as a little small for a unit of this capacity. Maybe that is an illusion, but if you aren't direct draining, this could be an issue for you.
I will update my review if I run into any problems with this unit.
Suggestion: Do not buy any of the dehumidifier units on the market that include a built-in pump-up system. From what I've read, those kind of units frequently have pump failure and even more frequently are not able to pump up high enough to be useful in most situations. Instead, get one like the Danby (no internal pump), purchase a $40 condensate pump, screw it to the drain hole with a short length of garden hose (this Danby does have such a drain hole) and discharge the water through a window, a drilled foundation hole or directly into a standing pipe.
Or, you'll be emptying the dehumidifier tank several times a day.
I use a hose that drains into my sump basket and it runs pretty much continuously in the three months of major Michigan summer. This year, I had it going from April into the first part of October, so it got an extra long workout. It remained reasonably quiet and required no maintenance. It also never had any trouble keeping the room at 50%.
UPDATE: It is the start of season #2 and this unit has developed similar symptoms to my last humidifier. The housing is literally falling apart. Furthermore, the LED display, which had issues for months, has now completely quit. The good news is that it still works. It still isn't near as loud as my last one. Nonetheless, it doesn't look like a long-term investment.

works fine but so would a cheaper one that didn't advertise a remote.
