Does what its supposed to
on June 5, 2014
I have had this in use for about a week. When I first turned it on it was in the theater room in my basement. The total size of the basement is around 600 sq ft and the theater room is about half the space. The humidity reading was about 65% when it started and it quickly got it below 50% and after about a day it hovers around 45%.
It is quieter than my last humidifier and is similar in volume to an oscillating room fan. It is noticeable but not distracting. I am using the drain connection which is working great draining into a floor drain.
I recently moved it around the corner into a utility area and it seems to be effective at lowering humidity in the theater area from the new location.
The overall construction is good but the internal bucket for collecting water is small and I personally wouldn't want to use it since it would likely need to be dumped frequently. That is not unique to this unit, it is a common problem.
I would recommend this item.
Update August 27 2014. Still works great. Couldn't imagine the summer in the basement without it. Quiet and much cooler in the basement with it in place. I don't even think about it since it is connected to the floor drain.
