I spent a night reviewing dehumidifiers at Consumer Reports, amazon, and elsewhere to understand what I should use for a damp basement after the 2010 east coast winter. I realized, finally, by plowing through all the hype, that the "70 pints" does not refer to the volume of the bucket, but the rate at which the dehumidifier can remove water vapor from the air: 70 pints per day, but the buckets are all the same, about 2 gallons. That needs to be made clearer in the review and advertising. For a block-wall basement, with French drains, in an area with high water table, or for any room where liquid water appears, you need the highest rate so the unit cycles on and off. Otherwise, you seriously waste power.
This unit (Frigidaire FAD704TDP) was not reviewed by Consumer Reports, but by others who were concerned with drying rates and noise. This unit is almost silent! It filled a 2-gal bucket in just a few hours in a 40x60 foot basement with no liquid water but with damp block foundation. Overnight, the difference was remarkable; in two days time, it was dry and liveable without further odors. It cycles in 1-3 hours, depending on rainfall, when set to 40% humidity, and I would suppose that higher or lower settings may be needed at other times of year.
I built a clear vinyl hose from parts at hardware store, and piped the water to the small sump attached to the house HVAC. The unit had to be placed on an 8" box (wooden), with casters to keep it from rolling off. Being able to see the hose water was important as grunge will appear; when not hosed out, this eventually blocked the hose and defeated the dehumidifier. The built-in air filter is not designed to remove mold spores to prevent this problem.
A very good product, confidently recommended.

I really liked this dehumidifier for the season and a half that it lasted. I used it in a basement and connected a drain hose for continuous operation. It had no trouble keeping my basement at 50 - 60% humidity and I really never had to do anything except check and clean the filter every few weeks. I felt the noise level was reasonable for a basement. The bucket was a little tricky to remove, but since I had it hooked up to a hose that didn't bother me too much.

Unfortunately it seems like no one can build a dehumidifier that lasts anymore. This one didn't fail completely, but it appeared that something went wrong with the humidistat or electronics. After the problems started the unit always displayed the humidity as 95% and ran continuously. I checked the hose and there was still plenty of moisture being removed so I think the compressor was still going strong. Since I had an extended warranty (I bought this from HH Gregg) I returned for repair but they decided it was too expensive to fix and now I must replace it. I may take a chance on another Frigidaire, or perhaps the Soleus 70 pint model.

I am giving this three stars because although it worked well at first, I think an appliance like this should last for 5 years at a minimum, and also if something does go wrong these should be repairable. That energy star rating means nothing if there are a stream of these headed to a landfill because they don't last.

UPDATE 06-02-2010: I decided to go with this unit as a replacement for my previous Frigidaire 70 pint unit. Just a warning, the unit I got looks slightly different... more like this one: http://www.amazon.com/Frigidaire-70-pint-Dehumidifier/dp/B001UH91OI/ref=sr_1_20?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1275532106&sr=1-20 I originally thought this might be old stock, but the date of manufacture was 3/10 so I must be mistaken. Hopefully my warranty will transfer because I have a feeling I will be going through this all again in a couple years.

I've owned four dehumidifiers over the years from kenmore and LG. All were extremely noisy and broke after a couple years.

This is by far the best dehumidifier I've owned. I've been using the frigidaire about 18months now. It's chassis is plastic (very rugged) which seems to contribute to it's low noise. It just sounds like a fan is running - there is no compressor buzz to speak of. The fit and finish is the best I've seen -- the bucket is very strong, tight fitting and well designed (it has a float to disable dehumidifier and a built in splash cover when carrying a full bucket). It fills up the bucket in about 12 hours and my humidity is about 50% for what it's worth.

The only possible problem is that it short cycles (turns on/off too often and too quickly) if I set a desired humidity level. It pulls water out of the air quickly so that it's probably oversized for it's room size / humidity levels (I knew this when selecting the 70pint version). Nonetheless, I would expect there to be a timer to prevent short cycles. It's possible compressor is rated for the short cycles...just something to note. I just run it once a day on continuous until bucket fills up, so it's not an issue for me.

I'm giving it 5 stars because the build quality and noise levels are so much better than anything I've owned in the past (and it dehumidifies as expected). Short cycles are more of an observation, your mileage may vary. Finally a dehumidifier that does not shake and rattle and just sounds like a fan!

I purchased this product over 3 months ago now. It has ran great and continues to keep my basement free of dampness. The dehumidifier ran continuously for nearly a week before it cleaned out the humidity from my 40x30 unfinished basement (with little to no furniture), but now it runs only three to four times a week for about 2 hours at a time and I empty it only 1-2 times a week. The container that collects the water is difficult to remove at first, but if you read the manual (and press the sides together)the machine is a fabulous addition to your home!! It IS loud, like other reviews are confirming; however, for me- hearing it run is a reassurance that it is working! And it is not so loud that you can not mask it. Reusable filter is great, but needs cleaned often (if it runs often). Also the efficiency on this unit is SO eco-friendly... my electric bill only went up $15 for the first month of use (and it ran for over a week continuously! I emptied it daily!) GREAT PRODUCT!!! STRONGLY RECOMMEND for large basements with dampness problems!
