The first week I used the "refurbished" dehumidifier it worked fine and then it started leaking water all over my floor. Since I had disposed of the shipping carton, it seemed the only thing I could do was try to determine why the unit was suddenly leaking. I removed the front panel and found that a small assembly screw was lodged in the drain line. The corroded and rusty condition of the screw led me to believe it had been in the drain prior to the unit being "refurbished." Because the leak did not occur immediately upon startup, it was probably not detected by the "refurbishers." After my repairs, the unit is working extremely well.
Was pleasantly surprised to open the box to find that it is the same, or as nearly the same, to the dehumidifier I've had before which I had purchased from a big box retailer for considerably more money. (It eventually died over time.) Unpacked it, took it downstairs and it started right up. It has been running for a few days now and working well as I'm having to empty the collection bucket about once per day. Within a day that slight musty smell in my basement was gone. Other reviewers found this unit noisy, but it sounds no different than the one I owned prior and because it's in the basement and I'm typically on the second floor it does not bother me in the least. Although it's only been a few days, at this time I have no complaints and consider it a very good value. Recommend!
Performed poorly, when compared to other dehumidifiers we've owned filled this unit was slow to fill the bucket. It was also noisy which was ok because we located it in a remote spot in the basement, it could not be heard on the second floor. I suspect whoever reassembled upon completing the refurbishment did not take the time to correctly locate all the screws because it rattled.
Then, in it's second summer of operation I notice that it was barely collecting water, even during very wet periods of flooding. You know what they say, you get what you pay for and this thing was a cheap piece of junk.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? fine

I just purchased this dehumidifier and am quite pleased with it thus far. As far as what to set it at it depends on the room/area you are using it in. I have it in my basement and set at 50% which, from what I've read online and have heard from other users, is a standard humidity level setting for a basic basement. So far so good!dmb0329 on Aug 24, 2013
