Review Title: Good while it worked but not very long
Comments: I bought this dehumidifier a little over a year ago based on its STELLAR reviews. It was very quiet while it worked but lasted only a little over a year. It was running but not pulling any water out of the air. I cleaned the filter and fins thoroughly on a regular basis. I was not running this 24/7 so it was not abused or overworked. It should have lasted much longer for the price I paid. Needless to say I would NOT buy it again.

Review Title: Silent, effective, and not difficult to empty at all!
Comments: From one review reader to another: Before buying this dehumidifier I read all the current reviews (34 reviews at that time) and I came to the conclusion that it only had one tiny problem. Namely that it was a little troublesome to empty out when full. This is not true. As long as you know that there is water in the container anyone should know to use a gentle hand; even a glass of water requires a certain amount of control. This is all I have to say. I have only used the Soleus CFM40 40 Pint Room Dehumidifier for a week, however I strongly recommend it, and to anyone that is still in doubt: Buy this product! It is just as good as the noisy dehumidifiers out there! I don't understand why this product doesn't cost more. The price I used to pay for preventing mold during the humid summer was that unbearable noise. I am very satisfied!

Review Title: No more dampness
Comments: We put this up in the spare room to try it out, very wet in there. I emptied the humidifier in 6& a half hours, then7 hours & again in 9 hours, hooray a dry room. The humidifier works twice to three times faster than my old one. EVERYBODY, if you need one buy this CFM40 model it works like a charm. Thank you air-n-water, we had a hellacious number of rain storms & this unit is doing all it was said it would do.

Review Title: Silence
Comments: The best feature of this product is its quiet. All others products I've used in the past operate at a much higher decibel level. In a finished basement you don't want to listen to a loud dehumidifier all the time.

Review Title: Great dehumidifier
Comments: I'm using this dehumidifier in the basement and after few months I noticed that the basement is much drier. It runs very quiet and I think it will be no problem to even sleep next to it. I highly recommend this product.

Comments: I would recommend this product because it performed as specified and because it is QUIET. Most dehumidifiers are noisy. This product might be used day and night. If used at night in a residence, quiet can be very important because people are trying to sleep.

Comments: When it arrived, I plugged it in my living room just for overnight and was surprised at the difference it made. It stayed upstairs. We don't have to turn up the TV volume since the Soleus runs very quietly. Running one on each floor may negate the need for a 2nd in the basement. I no longer use the Whirlpool because of the expense of operation and the noise that can be heard upstairs. If, during the wet spring weather I need another in the basement, the Soleus pays for itself over operating the less efficient other brands so I will buy another.
