Do not buy. This dehumidifier is quiet, but it does not collect much water. I purchased this unit based on the manufacturer's claims of quiet operation and a 46-pint capacity. I had purchased a Kenmore 50-pint unit from Sears, but I was not happy with the noise level of that unit.
I was impressed with the SD-46T's noise level. Very quiet. The UV light seemed to be a good idea, though I am not sure how to verify it is killing bacteria.
When I receive the SD-46T, I decided to compare the performance with the Kenmore machine for a few days. I placed them side by side and monitored the water levels. After 2 days, the Kenmore machine was full. The SD-46T, with a much smaller tank, was less than half full. I continued the side-by-side comparison for a few more days, and found the same result. Sears/Kenmore = Full, but noisy
SD-46T = Small amount of water, but quiet.
I chose to keep the noisy Kenmore that dehumidifies very well, and I returned the SD-46T.
Amazon's return system is awesome! I completed the return form on-line, printed the pre-paid shipping label, then dropped it off a PacMail. Very convenient....more info
Works Well Really like the size of this unit and it starts right up when you plug it in. Easy to operate and move to any location n the house. It is quiet for a dehumidifier. Only complaint is that the plastic shield to direct air flow is flimsy. We tried to redirect the flow and it fell off. When you try to put it back on it is difficult and one pin broke. Luckily the shield is more window dressing, as the unit works well without it. It has a nice extra feature of an ionizer to purify the air. Not sure if this really works, but we have all breathed easier since we have run this dehumidifier in our home. ...more info
