Another Quality Product from Delonghi
We bought this for the other end of the house, instead of moving around the old Delonghi CFO8E that is still going strong after many years. Initially we weren't sure if the newer model would be as good as the old one, but we must say it does not disappoint. The only downside is the water tank is smaller than CFO8E but as long as it lasts for many years, that's all that matters.
Purchased in April 2018 at Bing Lee Physical store for $499.00.
I liked it so much I bought two more
Bought my first dehumidifier DDS30 Combi, I was happy with its performance and ease of functions.
Then I thought I would try another renown brand and bought one, however I was deeply disappointed by its quality in comparison to Delonghi, it as noisy, and they sent me a wrong model.
I then returned for a full refund and bought two more Delonghi.
Now each corner of my home has one unit and the feeling of dryness, lack of dampness and smell is so nice.

A solid work horse
I've had this machine running around the clock for 5 years in Palmerston North (average 80% natural humidity). Controls are manual and basic but easy to operate, and do what they are supposed to.
It's easy to forget to clean the filter But it will take a lot of fluff and dust before there is any appreciable difference with the air quality. Operation is not whisper quiet, but not obtrusive, and only tends to raise the air temperature by a degree or two.
I can get up to 8L of water a day (though closer to 3 most days) depending on weather. For c...

Quite Disappointing - broke after 4 years and it's not repairable
I had the Dehumidifier for 4 years, was working ok , air filter not the best but did the job, then one day got a PF fault, took it to a delonghi repairer and after 2 weeks of wait, got told the fan motor failed and it's not repairable!!!! after 4 years?? a product that cost 400+$$ , very disappointed all i can say.
Purchased in September 2016 at Harvey Norman for $440.00.
We’ve had ours for a couple of years and works very well. Our place has a lot of condensation due to gas heater and when we turn it on, it just works. Just wish the tank was a bit bigger so we didn’t have to empty it twice a day in winter
Purchased in June 2018 at The Good Guys for $389.00.
Purchased as a repaired unit with 1yr warranty.
Works as expected. New Zealand conditions of damp damp and more danp.
Not great in cold weather as delonghi rely on a PTC heater instead of HOT GAS DEFROST. I am sure as the oligarchy stipulate we actually create power into the grid they will implement this upgrade.
As we are going into a Solar Minimum (i know right....told "global warming" all the time). Units working well at 5degrees will become more important.

Don't bother waste of money
It worked fine for a month and then it stopped working all together. I rang Delonghi and was referred to my local repairer who were totally rude and very uninterested about looking at the machine. was told to take it back and reduce the setting to 30% and should definitely work. That was their resolution for my effort to take it up there. Take it back home and try it again after trying it in other rooms with not a drop of water collected.
After almost three weeks of waiting patiently I took the initiative to call them up and was told it is wor...
Humidity is a heaven for germs and dust mites. Humidity in Sydney is always high. I and my kid have allergy to dust. This dehumidifier is really helpful, about 5 liters of water in 24 hrs. 80-90% of our sneezing problems gone. We keep the humidity of 45-50. The auto funtion is good.

Beware. This product was working great and doing its job until it set fire to the house at 1am in the morning on December 6th 2017. My own actions saved the house 9 not without personal injury) Insurance covered the damage. It took 6 months to repair the damage. If you use this brand dehumidifier then do so aware of the risk.
Works ok but....
Indoor pollution, and the off-gassing of items inside the home, is becoming more and more talked about as being bad for our health. If you're the sort of person who worries about this kind of thing then you might want to look for a different make of dehumidifier - this one smells strongly like a toxic chemical factory. It's been running two whole days and still smells bad.
Never used Dehumidifier before, researched which one is best for our need and decided on the Delonghi brand. I am tipping on average 9 litres of water per 24 hours cycle. My husband suffers pain when it is high humidity due to his spinal injury and this machine has given him some comfort.
It is so versatile to move from one room to another, It is great in the bathroom - bathroom hardly have any moisture after we have a shower :)
The laundry function is fantastic on rainy/wet days.
The cooler fan is great too.
Good as a dehumidifier, average air filter.
We purchased this due to having asthma which flares up in the winter. We have previously used HEPA air filters without a dehumidifier which has worked great until the unit broke after over 10 years usage.
Based on a family recommendation we purchased this unit, which works great as a dehumidifier but functions below average as an air filter. We immediately noticed a difference in air quality & purchased a HEPA filter soon after which resulted in less flare ups with asthma.
Not as good as a CF 8E model
Small 4,5 L tank, the earlyer model CF8E and CF5E have 6 litre tanks that are far superior in use.
The moisture removal is slow compaired the early models, could it be the refrigerent perhaps.
I have purchased four of the DDS 30 models and none work as well as the older DeLonghi series, of which I still have seven of them in operation including one of the old pre-plastic full steel boddied models which is the best one, pulls far more moisture out of the air compaired to the CF8E which comes in second, DDS 30 3rd, and CF5E 4th.
Delonghi is much better then Mitsubishi...
We had Mitsubishi before no way near Delonghi.
Difference between them is huge very easy to clean and you can place it next to the wall and extract lot of water. Previous one I need to empty twice in a week this one everyday. Most importantly value for money thanks

Best All-Round Dehumidifier for Colder Environments
The DēLonghi DDS30 Combi dehumidifier has a modern and comparatively stylish appearance compared to its competitors. DēLonghi bills the DDS30 Combi as a compact design, although it would be more accurately described as short and stocky (fatter by depth). The Combi draws air from the front rather than the back, so partially mitigates the extra depth by allowing you to place it closer to the wall.
We use the Combi to combat the dampness of our cold and wet New Zealand winters. This particular unit resides in our study, which is about the size ...of a small bedroom. It is our second dehumidifier in addition to an old Mitsubishi MJ-E20PX that continues to provide faithful service after 13 years! CLOSEST COMPETITOR The recent model Mitsubishi MJ-E22VX is a close alternative to the Combi, however I did not like the 90’s aesthetic that Mitsubishi have clung to for so long. The old style LCD and membrane buttons of the Mitsubishi do not look and feel as good as the white on blue LED display and solid push buttons of the DēLonghi Combi. The Mitsubishi does however compare more favourably on warranty, quietness, brand reputation, and a more informative display. Both are similarly priced, high-end models for their respective brands.
