Rated 3 out of 5 by mrblint dehumidifies but hard to empty the reservoir
We've had this model for over a year. It dehumidifies well but there are two things I don't like about it: 1) the reservoir, when it's full, is difficult to slide out for emptying 2) the unit vibrates loudly: in the living room we can hear it loud and clear through the floor down in the basement. I'm comparing the difficulty of emptying the reservoir and the noise level to that of other units we've had over the years, which were easier to empty and quieter. The LG has them beat on efficiency, however.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Brian1985 Terrible Quality
We purchased this unit and got just over year out of it. Just long enough for the warranty to expire. Like everyone else it quit pulling the moisture out of the air and only works as a fan. Terrible quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 Stopped dehumidifying 1 year
Stopped removing humidity in little over a year. Just a fan now. Would not buy again.

We purchased the 45 pint LG dehumidifier at Home depot 15 months ago after a nasty basement flood. Out of the box, it worked wonderfully and helped save our carpet. However, one year later we experience another flood, and though the unit turns on, it no longer will collect any water. Absolutely terrible durability.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Paul Lasted Less Than One Year.
This product lasted less than one year. When I inquired about warranty and repair the closest LG certified technician was 1 hour and 20 minutes from my house. This is the last LG appliance I will purchase.

My third dehumidifier just died after only 1 year of service, so now I get to see how LG handles warranty issues. These dehumidifiers operate nicely - they are quiet, work well, and it is easy to hook up the drainage to an external drain. But, they simply do not last. The first one lasted 3 years, the second for two years, and my most recent purchase only 11 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kasandra Wonderful Product
I LOVE this dehumidifier, the humidity in my home was at 95% when I purchased this. It's now steadily at 50% but could be lower if I set the dehumidifier to a lower setting. I have a 1000sqft apt. and it keeps the entire apt. at the level I set it to. I the only thing I don't like, and the reason for the 4 star rating for "Features", is that it is not energy efficient, however, I have there has not been much of a raise in my electric usage and it runs 24/7.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cg7 overall--quiet and efficient
good product for the money. seems to do a good job of
regulating the moisture before and after showers. (I have it placed in a large bedroom close to the shower.)
There's only a couple small details that could be better. One, is if it had an indicator of the house humidity in addition to the target humidity. Another is minor rattles and quirks such as an oscillating hum when low speed is used consistently. Switching to high speed, then back to low seems to help the problem.
