I gave it three stars because although it works well, it didn't have a drain hose and it gave off a wet animal smell as if it was used around dog feces. Sol I'm trying to clean it and see if that works, if not I will be sending it back in a couple of days.
I live in the basement of my building complex and it does tend to get really humid, ESEPCIALLY, during the summer time. I bought this in hopes that it would help and it did. I noticed a difference in humidity in a matter of hours. Even if I didn't feel it, i definitely saw it. I kept emptying the "bucket" of water it was collecting. My apartment is now extremely comfortable. Highly recommend it.
