It's not the 70 pint that was front page, but many won't need that capacity. This one is $110 after $10 clipped coupon. Great deal for $110. I would highly suggest the $9 Asurion 3 yr warranty that pops up when purchased. Lowest price on CCC and best price today for anything comparable. My Frigidaire died after 5 months. GE went one summer. We will see how this one goes.

Size:6 Gallon (50 pint)
Protect your home or basement from mold and mildew, and breathe easy with the Energy Star certified hOme 6 Gallon Dehumidifier.

Product Care and Use
WATER REMOVAL: For manual removal: Turn off Dehumidifier when water tank is full, remove tank from Dehumidifier and empty its bucket. For continuous draining: Attach Dehumidifier drain hose outlet to female-threaded end of standard water hose before use.
OPERATION: Dehumidifier automatically enters a 3-minute rest period after completing a moisture removal cycle. To prevent damage, do not start Dehumidifier during rest period. Operation starts again automatically when rest period is complete.

NOISE REDUCTION: To reduce noise during use, position Dehumidifier on level surface and ensure air filter is not clogged.

IMPORTANT: Like most dehumidifiers, our 6 Gallon model emits dry hot air from its fan during moisture removal. To help prevent significant increases in surrounding air temperature during use, we recommend it for indoor spaces with a minimum of 1000 square feet.

Is this a compressor model? Also, does anyone have any experience using this brand?

Yes, compressor. This is a new company, however, someone stated in the expired 70 pint thread the unit looks to be made by Midea...same chinese co that makes most of the brands on the market. So...I hope it lasts more than 5 years, but I bought the warranty as a safeguard. I have gone through 2 in the past 2 years (GE and Frigidarie which I believe were made by Midea too Frown ).

I have the 70 pint model and it seems to work well as far as I can tell. I have no other experience with dehumidifiers though.

One big minus is the humidity sensor and how it senses humidity. When it reaches its set point, it turns off, as expected. However, the fan being off causes the humidity reading to rapidly increase, causing the unit to turn back on. So it really only stays off like 2 minutes. It's really stupid how it works. All it would have to do is to run the fan on low for a minute and then take a humidity reading and then wait 5 or 10 minutes or so, run the fan on low, take a reading, etc. I'm not some kind of genius product engineer, but it's just common sense.

I just use it on continuous mode overnight since the sensor is so dumb. It's so loud that I wouldn't want it running during the day anyways.

So if you run it overnight, that's enough to dehumidify the room? I would like to do something like that too that way I wouldn't have to worry about coming home from work to make sure I emptied the container.

It's enough to dehumidify my whole house. ~1650 sq ft, open floor plan, high ceilings.

I have a netatmo (temp, co2, humidity tracker) so I can see records of how it does and the dehumidifier brought the humidity from 54 to 42% last night and the night before from 59 to 43 and the night before that 65 to 49%. The bucket is nearly full in the morning.

As you can see, the humidity rebounds during the day, so that's a con of only running it at night. But like I said, these things are just too loud to run during the day, for me anyways.
