1 out of 5 eggsProduct arrived unusable

Pros: None yet, see cons

Cons: As with other reviews, the box arrived with a large dent and rip in it. The difference with my product was that the unit itself sustained some serious damage. The power cord was ripped with bare copper wire exposed. The unit is made of a heavy plastic material, and there was a corner that had the plastic ripped (It appears that this box was seriously abused during the shipping process) . There was also a scratch on it.

Needless to say, I did not plug this unit it to try it.

Other Thoughts: Repairing the wire may not be a hard task, but looking at the damage to the outside of the unit and judging by the force it took to take gouges out of the hard plastic, I imagine the insides of the unit are damaged.

I requested a replacement. Newegg's return process is a breeze so far.

4 out of 5 eggsD70BP - Powerful, effective dehumidifier with many features

Pros: Very well built, attractive looks, easy to use, does its job really well.
Quickly reduced relative humidity (RH) in my 15'x10'x10' living room from 55% - 60% to low 40s, and below 40% within an hour (Note: RH above 55% starts to become a risk factor for mold).
It's rated at 70 pints per day for moisture removal, with the capacity also rated as 70 pints, but I had to empty it more than once per day when running it continuously.

Features are quite extensive, and include the following:

- LEDs on top of unit indicate room temperature and current RH, the latter briefly showing the desired RH when you set it via up/down buttons.

- Timer can be set from 1-24 hours for automatic shutdown - default is to run continuously until target RH is reached or until the large internal water receptacle is full.

- Water receptacle is easy to remove without spillage and has a built-in carrying handle. When full, it beeps to alert you, and shuts the unit off.

- There are also two external drainage methods: one via an internal pump using a 15' hose, the other via gravity feed using a short, wide hose to a lower drain point. If you have a nearby drain, either will save you the inconvenience of manually emptying the receptacle.

- Pre-installed casters are very handy as this model weighs fifty pounds due to its hefty internal components.

- Two fan speeds, low and high (noise at both speeds is also a Con though).

- When the target RH is reached or shortly after, the unit shuts itself off. It will turn on again after RH is 5 or so points above target. In my opinion the delay is about right so that on/off is not cycling too frequently.

- Easy to remove and clean air filter

Cons: Fan noise - Both fan settings are loud, much louder than my HEPA air filter at its highest setting. In addition, the low setting on my unit causes some kind of whine. I believe it is caused by the air flow through the vents on top since if I disrupt it (without blocking the vents) with my hand it disappears. Because of this, the high setting, though louder, is less annoying.

Due to the way dehumidifiers work, it naturally produces heat - enough to raise my room temperature five degrees or more, to around 80F at time of writing. This may not be a problem for everyone, of course.

Plastic protective cover on control panel is starting to bubble up very slightly around the buttons after two weeks use. Apart from that, the unit is attractive and sturdy.

Drainage pump has a 15' limit on height/distance between unit and drain location.

Other Thoughts: Due to its noise, the D70BP is best suited for use in an unoccupied room, eg. if you have a damp cellar, or want to dehumidify a bedroom during the day. Or any room when you are out for work, etc.. As another reviewer mentioned, it would be nice to have an extra low fan setting that could lessen the noise to an acceptable level.
It's incredibly effective though, and I was surprised how much moisture it sucked out of my living room in just a few hours.

I tested all three drain methods. The internal bucket filled up in 6-8 hours in my somewhat drafty apartment, in a fairly humid area. The gravity drainage was least convenient, as the unit has to be higher than the drain with the somewhat short hose running horizontally or downward, with no upward incline. I tested the drain pump method by draping the 15' hose over a shower curtain rail in my bathroom and it worked as expected. The drain pump noise was quite acceptable and low, especially compared to the fans.
If you don't have a convenient drain, you could use a large external bucket, but there's a risk of overflow. I would stick with the internal receptacle in this case.

I measured power usage with my Kill-A-Watt meter, and it averaged around 650-685 watts on either fan setting (the drain pump added maybe 5-10 watts, if my meter is to be trusted). So it's costly to run 24/7 - not unexpected due to its powerful motor.

In terms of build quality, looks, and functionality, the D70BP is a great product and easily worth 5 eggs. I'm deducting an egg only because it's too loud to use while I'm in the same room.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's a Beast!

Pros: This unit was rather well packed, and seems to have taken a beating without any damage! This is rather impressive on its own. It's heavy, and the box got pretty banged up but the unit is in perfect condition! Pushing and tugging on some parts, including the wheels, does give me some confidence to this build quality. The floating mechanism seems to be simple yet reliable – I was just surprised to see the floater actually being Styrofoam but there's nothing wrong with that. On the back you can easily find the specifications of the unit, and even right behind the water bucket you can find its electronic schematics. 7.5A max @ 115V only in case you were wondering – it'll run up your energy bill more than the computer you're using to read this review, but it's better than a full A/C unit! Use of this dehumidifier is very easy in every way. The indicators are easy, it has a beeping alarm for full bucket, the hoses are rather obvious to hook up for continuous operation, and it updates rapidly. The air filter is easy to remove clean as well. It included two different hoses and gasket, depending on if you're using the pump or not for continuous draining. The pump advertises 15' of height, which is more than enough to get through a window or even a hole at the corner of the roof. Continuous drip without the pump won't clear the height of a bathtub, but should work well to drain onto a patio, out the front door, or shower stall. And this thing works pretty dang quick too. It definitely out-performs the dehumidifier it's replacing!

Cons: Well, as you figured, it's heavy. It's pretty cumbersome to move around. It does have small wheels which work great on wood and tile, but terrible on carpet. I find its low setting to be rather loud, and the frequency at which it turns on and turns off can be distracting. There's no way we can listen to TV at a comfortable volume with this guy running in the same room. It comes with hoses, but there's no where to really store them, and I'm sure they'll get lost as time goes by – there's not even a good way to wrap up the power cord when I'm done with it. I would also prefer the plug to have a 90° turn so it would fit behind furniture snug against the wall. The performance of this thing, even on low setting, comes at a cost: the air it blows out definitely warms up the room as quickly as it takes out the humidity (it also has a definite “warm” smell on first use too). I would have loved for this thing to have an ultra-low operating setting to reduce noise and the amount of times it turns on/off.

Other Thoughts: The flat top makes me want to put things on it, which is a big no-no. Its square shape also makes me want to tuck it snugly between a wall and bookshelf, but also a no-no. It seems to increase the temperature of a room by 1°F for every 2% of humidity it removes. This would be great in the winter when the A/C doesn't kick on due to not being hot enough, but it's rather unpleasant to use in the summer.

5 out of 5 eggsFriedrich's For the Win

Pros: Build quality is better than average.
Set from 30% up on humidity control, Shows temperature plus what the humidity is after you set it.
All digital controls and easy read outs.
washable filter on air intake.
Bucket holds a little over 2 gallons.
includes a 15 foot clear hose for easy draining with built in pump.
Packaged well with easy to read and understand instructions.
Already installed rollers for easy moving.

Cons: Would like a little stronger pump.

Other Thoughts: I live within two miles of the Mississippi river so is very humid in the summer here. I have an older Kenmore with dials in the basement which works decent for its age. I started with this upstairs using the bucket. In two days on low with humidity set to 50% I had to empty the bucket 5 times. My air conditioner is always set to 73 as the wife has to stay cool. In the first 4 hours of operation she adjusted the AC up to 76 and she said it felt colder than it did now with the Friedrich's running at 76 than without it on 73. After two days I was planning on putting it down the basement but she talked me out of it. I emptied the Kenmore 3 times on low with humidity dial set in middle. With it sleek look and the quietness of the unit I don't think she will ever let me put it down the basement now. I have now set the hose up for draining so no more buckets. I plumbed it in to the dishwasher drain and I turned the humidity up to 55% to see if it made a huge difference in the way the AC unit cools. We now keep the AC on 75 so I am saving money there. I figure I will break even on the electric cost and my upstairs is much drier now. When I plumbed in the drain I had to go up about 2 inches after 5 foot then back down to the drain. I was worried it wouldn't be able to go up that slight rise but it did. My idea spot would of took it up about 8 inches but it wouldn't push the water up that incline. If I tried that with my Kenmore even by an inch the water wouldn't drain. I am impressed by this humidifier. When you pick it up it is heavy and that tells you a lot about the build quality. This brand name wasn't known to me but now I see how it is built and works I would feel comfortable buying anything with Friedrich on it period. It is actually quieter than my name brand Kenmore. All I have to say is if this company doesn't take over the market in a short time I would be very surprised.
I didn't have any reason to call support so I cant tell you if it is good or bad but the quality speaks for itself.

5 out of 5 eggsNice quality Item.

Pros: I am an Eggxpert Reviewer now that I mentioned that here is my review.


First off it works.
Second has a pump that allows hookup to a drain.
Third not crazy loud.
Fourth pulls a lot of water compared to the power it uses.

Lastly my delivery truck guy was good and I got a nice clean box.

Cons: Like all dehumidifiers it gives off plenty of heat.
even though it does a better job then most at watts used to drop your humidity percent . It will cost you quite a bit if you run it a lot.

Other Thoughts: I try to never run humidifiers in the summer as they will simply make the rooms very warm. The fall is coming and if you have a damp cold basement in the fall and the winter now is the time to buy this. It will dry out your basement and make it warmer. So consider getting this while the current promo from newegg is still good. I have a damp basement so I will use this in the fall and the winter. My basement will be warm and dry. With the current sale newegg has a ver good price on this.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: First off I was scared by the delivery company, as it looked as if it was kicked and dragged here from Newegg. After unboxing I discovered No damage and installed it in my old stinky basement. 2 or 3 hours later I went down to check on the progress and I was very impressed. I had set it for 50% humidity and it was working away at it with the Built-in Drain Pump, pumping the water up about 5' to a drain I rigged into my waste pipe in the cellar. I drilled a 3/8" hole to accommodate the hose provided. (It says it can pump 15', but I only need it to do 5 or 6') I tapped the hose a few times to move some air bubbles out of the way, and it is still pumping the water out of my basement. I have it on a shelf about 16" off the floor, The fan is not loud but not quiet either. I would say it is louder than a refrigerator, but the air quality down there is great now. After running it for a half a day, I set it to turn off after 3 hours. The hose provided works great, I have not used the bucket method, but this thing pulls a ton moisture out of the air. You can feel the difference down there. Highly recommend the
Friedrich D70BP 70 Pint Dehumidifier, to anyone who wants a quality dehumidifier that pumps the water up and out.

Cons: The con would be against the delivery company, (Giant Brown everything)

Other Thoughts: I would have been upset if the delivery company damaged this great machine, and I had to do the Customer Service shuffle. But the packaging is strong and handled the arrival.

5 out of 5 eggsHighly recommend this unit

Pros: Purchased this to replace a 9 year old ailing Kenmore dehumidifier that gave great service. Was told they don't make the new Kenmores like they used to, so I went looking for a new unit. I've been disappointed before with other familiar brand-name units; so I decided to step out of my comfort zone and try the Friedrich D70BP. I wasn't familiar with the Friedrich name, but my online research indicated mostly high reviews for their dehumidifiers so I gave it a try. We've had it running for a little over six weeks now, and I am very impressed. It is much quieter than the unit I replaced it with, and it pulls water out of the air like a boss. In less than 24 hours, it brought the relative humidity down several percent lower than the Kenmore unit did on its best day. I'm very happy with the unit to date; I have not yet tried the built in pump that avoids having to dump out the front bucket -- we have to rearrange some things first to get the unit within 15 feet of the sink to place the drain hose. The instructions indicate that is the maximum distance (both combination of linear distance and height) to run the drain hose from the unit. In short, I'm glad I tried this unit and Newegg had the best price!

Cons: No cons yet, but see other thoughts below.

Other Thoughts: Only other thought to share is that the chassis of this unit is a bit smaller than the dehumidifier I replaced it with; that means the bucket of the Friedrich is a bit smaller and, since the unit is so efficient, it fills up quite fast -- on the most humid of days, it'll be full in 7 or 8 hours. For me all that means is I need to stop being so lazy and hook up the drain hose to the built-in pump, but I'm too busy writing reviews so I just keep dumping the bucket. :-)
