  the Smart Dry Plus Connect Dehumidifier LAD308WHT2IAN1

Build-in humidity sensor is not reflective of the room's humidity, shutting of before the room reached the set humidity

The humidity sensor is built into the dehumidifier, it is therefore not reflective of the room's humidity, thus, the humidity reading can be out by as much as 15%, resulting in shutting off too early, and starting to late.
My fix: I am now controlling the dehumidifier with a SmartPlug controlled by the room's humidity sensor. This works like a charm.
The product can be controlled via its own app, but also works within the Tuya app.
I wish they had a Zigbee option talking MQTT (even as a plug in option at a price). Show details

Very powerful. Love that it has a timer. Show details

Did more damage than good

Bought this dehumidifier because of the ability for it to pump the water container up to a sink. The pump function works after the container is full and then pumps it empty. I set it up overnight only to realise in the morning that the pump was broken/cracked and had pumped the water mostly onto our new wooden floor, damaging the vanish. The pump looks very cheap and in making the dehumidifier they didn't really consider the impact of a cheap pump might have on its surroundings.

If you do ignore this, then suggest you fill the tank with water when you first set up the unit and then press the pump button. This should drain the container and you will get an early indication if it leaks or not. Do not leave it and assume it'll work. Show details

Not high powered but effective for small rooms

Must be a new model. It's the only dehumidifier we could get right now.
It's small. Very quiet. Can be used at night even though it has an occasional gurgle.
Easy to use and carry from room to room.
For larger areas you might need more than 350W.
Does not appear to have a "heat" function which other models have. Does not matter here.

Breville smart dry dehumidifier

Great product for taking all the moisture out of the air and keeping everything dry. The only problem is they are a little noisy when the compressor is running. Still a great product if you don't mind the noise. Show details

Great product - sucks an amazing amount of water out of the air

I bought this dehumidifier after having two small Kogan ones that broke down. It works really well - we have it in our bathroom but it can dehumidify the whole apartment! Show details

Works well. Stylish design

Had this product for a while now and it works well. Takes a lot of moisture out of the air and it looks pretty good so fits nicely in a bedroom or lounge. Water tank fills up pretty quickly though as it’s quite small. Show details

Not great..leaks water

It leaked water straight out of the box on day 1. Seems to be an issue from a lot of reviews. Breville customer support is a waste of time - spent c30 minutes on the phone with them and their final solution is to send it back to the place I bought it from, notwithstanding the fact that the product is faulty out of the box and they include in the box a 2 year replacement guarantee. On the positive side it looks good as for the 1 day it was running it did remove a lot of water. Unfortunately a lot of that water was moved onto the floor. Would not recommend. Show details

Under powered

What a dud returned after 3months.
Was quiet and has a sleek design.
Couldnt reduce humidity enough in our laundry.
Maybe ok for small room.
Not worth the high price tag 2 stars at best. The Goodguys offered a full refund. Show details

I returned it after 8 months

I bought the brevity dehumidifier to replace an old delonghi one. I had high hopes for it as it looks great and neat. I found it very noisy compared to the old one and sometimes wouldn’t change mode. Sometimes it wouldn’t turn off when I pressed the off button (had to pull the wall plug) sometimes it just blew hot air? It seemed to have a mind of its own. The worst thing, which made me return it, was it would leak water all over the floor. Damaged our floor. I’m now looking to buy a Deloghi again. Show details

Works wonders!

Absolutely does what it says and has been a great addition to my home appliances. Speeds up my clothes drying and also great for my home library to keep the humidity at the right level for my books. Love it’s portability and also many functions and the two levels of fan function for day/night time and also the timer. I can set it and forget it! Would definitely recommend :) Show details

Same here leak d all over the floor after first night of operating. Can t see where the leaking coming from. The worst part is after ringing breville and waiting 10 mins then being told to leave number and they’ll call back and getting that call half hour later then talking to someone who has never heard of this issue and after asking to be put onto someone for some technical questions, and being put on hold again, waiting for 5 mins then the line went dead / they hung up. Way to lose customers breville. The phone contacts name was George. Obviously don’t buy breville products people.

That sounds like a faulty unit I’d return it to where you bought it and tell them it’s broken and get a replacement, I’ve had mine for quite a while never had a single leak. Also I’d swap it for the newer model LAD308 depending on your room size

Ours is great but does leak onto the floor after each 6 months or so - it's because of dust blocking the water drain pipe. We take the reservoir out and clear the dust

Mine is doing this also. Could you explain where the drain pipe you are cleaning is?
