The Sunpentown, although rated five-pints per day less than my last Frigidaire, removes the moisture from the air MUCH more quickly. The Frigidaire ran almost continuously in my cellar trying to maintain a 40% humidity level. The Sunpentown brought the humidity down from 66% to 40% in just a few hours, and now only runs occasionally to maintain this level despite the extremely wet weather we have experienced the last few weeks.
The Sunpentown, like the other, has two speeds. Sunpentown calls the higher speed "Turbo." There may be a logical reason for this -- at this speed it almost sounds like a turbojet. It is pretty darn loud. The "normal" speed is not bad. Unfortunately, when the unit goes into defrost mode it switches to Turbo speed, which is quite annoying in the middle of the night even though my bedroom is an insulated floor above the cellar. The sound travels through the heating ducts. The good part is that, since it does not run nearly as much as the other brand, it doesn't have to defrost very often.
The method of attaching a permanent drain hose to the unit is somewhat Mickey Mouse. They should have provided a way to screw the adapter piece to the case instead of having it hang loose. The adapter can be eliminated by simply plugging a long cut-off piece of 1/2 inch garden hose to the nipple inside the unit instead of using the adapter to screw on a garden hose.
Of course I can not yet speak about the longevity of this product, or about any warranty issues.Read more ›
Bottom line, unit going back to Amazon for a refund.
Frigidaire FAD704DUD vs. Supentown SD-65E
Purchased the Frigidaire unit instead - 70 pints/day (vs. 65 for the Supentown) and was $185 (vs. 224 for the Supentown, noticed the two are priced identical now). The Frigidaire appears to be better built, the plastic seems sturdier, the unit is smaller and better finished (e.g. the condenser overflow in the Supentown appears to be something drilled into the tank, those in the Frigidaire are manufactured with a collar and have a smooth finish). The Frigidaire is less noisy and produces far less heat than the Supentown. The tank of the Frigidaire can be stood flat on the ground, a major design fault of the Supentown which leans precariously. Finally, on the subject of continuous drainage, the elbow and plug provided by the frigidaire work flawlessly. The reason neither Frigidaire or Supentown drain continuously is the absence of a vent to balance the pressure within the hosepipe and allow gravity to do its job, Frigidaire has solved this by including a vent at the top of the elbow. Supentown should look to produce a similar part if they can be bothered. Gave the Frigidaire four stars because the necessary "drainage kit" should have been included in the box rather than having to call Customer Service for it.
In conclusion, after much research (and hands-on comparison of the two units), on short-term use, Frigidaire wins hands down.
