Like another reviewer mentioned, my basement utility room concrete floor was sweating to the point where little rivulets were running down toward the floor drain and the whole basement smelled. I bought two of these little dehumidifiers, one for the utility room side and one for the finished rec room side. They are working great. The humidity level was down to an acceptable range within a day. I hooked a hose up to allow the unity to drain automatically on the utility room side. I can't speak to how long these units will last - I will only be running them during the summer. I'm pleased so far, though.
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design

dehumidifier in my formerly damp basement utility room
The best thing I could say about any product is that is does exactly what you want it to do. It has a setting that allows me to control the humidity level, so it does not run non-stop until full. I love it.
Just bought this unit last night after dealing with days of hot, rainy and humid weather in the north east, that made my finished basement so wet and humid, it started smelling as the floor was literally "sweating". Turned it on around 10pm last night. It showed 85% humidity in the space!!! After about 2 hours, the humidity was down to 60%. It shut off during the night as the container was full. I emptied it this morning and turned it on again. Don't plan on shutting it off until this humid summer is over.....you can feel, never mind smell the difference in the air almost as soon as you turn it on. For the past night's work, I am giving it 5 stars!!! I hope it continues working the same.
This unit works great and is easy to use. Convenient to attach a hose to the unit so you don't have to empty the water container. Automatic shut off works great if you don't use the hose. Easy to empty the water container. Filter is easy to clean too. :)
Pros: Easy to Use, Sturdy, Looks Great, Good Size & Weight, Durable, Easy to Clean, High Quality, Nice Design
Great product for the money. Tells you the current humidity level, three speed settings, shut off timer, good capacity, good size, on wheels, and has a handy carrying handle for ease in moving it around. It has been running solid for over a week now and has really dried out our basement. We didn't want anything too large and hard to move around but still gets the job done and this fits the bill.
Not too noisy but i wish it had one setting lower than low to reduce the sound at night.
good product for the price.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
I had a serious humidity problem in my unfinished basement for weeks. The floors and walls were constantly wet, not damp, wet. The bucket needed to be emptied ever 4 to 5 hours the first two days because of the humidity level. Now once a day is fine. As for the hose, it is a tight fit but not impossible to get on if you use a little common sense. For the money I spent, I couldn't ask for anything more.
Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight
humidity gauge extreme inaccurate extreme noise every once in awhile cycle on and off every few minutes. not very productive only thing decent was the price. ge is letting me down on many of there products I have tried. took back got a 70 pint unit from another manufacturer and it is simply awesome. does in hour what this one could not do after running all night long.. try the other units after you return this one. preordered for store pickup box was slightly damaged but not interior. still to many issues to blame on beat up box.
fast shipping ge dehumidifier works well has been running ever day for about 45 day with drain hose no problems as of yet all my past lg dehumidifiers worked well for 1 yr then they were junk replaced with ge the test is on.
Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
It was the right price for a purchase in a pinch. It does a great job and is very quiet.

Started off great

No, I do not recommend this product.
I bought this 8 days ago in a pinch because our condo was so humid. It ran pretty continuously, but not 24 hrs/day until yesterday, when I came home to find it had leaked all over my floor. Prior to that it ran very well and was easy to empty and reset. Very disappointed to have to return it.
I've use it all summer with two major problems, it didnt shut off when full, and flooded the cellar. I tried it again thinking maybe i had a settinf wrong and it worked normal for a month and it happened again. So for that i would not recommed to item.
Pros: Easy to Use, Sturdy, Looks Great
Cons: flooded cellar

Dear Brad, This is Nancy with GE and I am very sorry to hear of the difficulty you have experienced with your dehumidifier. This is certainly not the outcome that we would have expected. Your unit has a one-year warranty. I recommend returning the unit to the place of purchase with the receipt so it can be exchanged. Thank you very much for your feedback.
This unit is very loud and did not bring the humidity down in our 963 sq ft house even running continuously. The digital humidistat never registered the correct humidity. It always read 80 %. We returned to the unit and purchased a fridgidare 50 that is much quieter and works much better.
We have a finished basement so we bought the dehumidifier to keep it dry and to keep the basement smells out. It works great and the price was comparable to other units. It was easy to set up, just take the packaging off and plug in. The bin is easily removed to dump the water.
Pros: Easy to Use, Durable, Easy to Clean, High Quality
We ;purchased this dehumidifier to replace one which had been recalled. The price was right. We plugged it in long enough to see if it worked, and when it did, we put it away for spring and summer when we will need it.
I had no idea how much moisture there actually was in my basement until I started using this dehumidifier. It works very well - I wish I would have gotten a bigger tank since I cannot run the continuous drain line. The auto shutoff feature is a lifesaver.
