Promising review: "This fall I went from having never used a dehumidifier to having one on all the time. My wife said we needed one, I told her I don't see the big deal but hey if it makes you happy why not? The first thing I noticed was how quiet it was: of course it isn't dead quiet, but it isn't any louder than say our fridge, definitely not louder than my laptop's cooling fan.
Before summer turned into fall, we (I) ended up emptying the water reservoir about once a week. It could be that it's really humid during NYC summers, but I had no idea just how much liquid was in the air. To be fair we do keep it by the bathroom, but the kitchen feels a little cooler and the bathroom smells a little less damp.
In summary, I hadn't used a dehumidifier before but this one seems to be doing the job well and, most importantly for us, quietly." —PAW
