Looks like a genuine dehumidifier that usually costs £100 in Argos / LIDL etc.The quoted performance of 10L per day is consistent with the similar models that are £100. In reality you'll get about a litre per day unless your house is a Sauna.
It has a 2.7L tank and continuous drain option. This means you can plug a piece of house pipe into the back of the dehumidifier and the water will drain out of the hose pipe into a sink or drain, instead of into the tank. This makes it less hassle.
Noise level is quoted at 45 dB(A) so must be a compressor model, as you would expect at this price point.
I bought one myself and it works well as you would expect. Available from ALDI Sunday 22/10/17 . Likely to sell fast my store only had 4 when I arrived and 2 left when I left!

White has sold out online, so I changed the link to the Black one, same deal.

Yes, desiccant dehumidifiers are considerably more effective than compressor models particularly at lower temperatures. I often find cold damp houses with compressor dehumidifiers running that have collected little to no moisture, swap out to a desiccant model, and suddenly there's 2 litres or more of water in the tank. Desiccant models are more expensive to purchase, usually ~£100 - £150 and those models with built in heaters in are more expensive to run, but they do a much better job of removing the moisture, so money well spent in the long run in my opinion.

We bought an Aldi one last year and it's been great. Seems a good price!

Happy now?

Definitely less noisy than my neighbours...

All dehumidifiers are noisy, compressor models are I find the most noisiest, but none of them are what I would call unobtrusive, if you have one on in an Room you will definitely know it is on, even desiccant ones make a noise because of the fan / fans circulating the air through the unit.

Thanks that's useful information

Went for the Meaco Premium model, fairly expensive but does a great job!

Best using when the heating is on to maximise the effectiveness. Surprising how much difference they collect then.

Not exactly quiet, it's like a cheap fridge motor going, I tend to have ours in the bathroom to dry clothes with an old fan to circulate the air, I turn it off when I go to bed but the rest of the family fall asleep with it on.

It says in the post "45dB(A)"

I use my Ebac occasionally to rid of condensation in winter mornings.

45db(A) is about as loud as having a fridge or a computer running in the room with you. The trouble is that it doesn’t mention frequency, so whilst a whirring fan wouldn’t be noticeable per se with the telly on, a whistling sound at this volume would be!

Bought this one about 2 years ago from Aldi for I think £99 and it's amazing.

The yellow ebac dehumidifier is rubbish can hear the compressor going for few minutes then switches off then all you can hear is fan going and slight cold air coming out and not ..me think it's broken already.

These are great for drying clothes indoors during the winter months and cheaper to run than a spin dryer.

Well it wouldn't be 100% cheaper as that would mean it was free...

Damn it. Had waited for one of those deals. Bit the bullet around the time the Vax sale was on. Wish they had sold them back then - £20 cheaper than the product I bought.

Would this be any good to speed up drying of newly plastered rooms?

Please don't put wired appliances in your bathrooms!

Went for the Mitsubishi model, far more expensive, but worth it just for this reply.

Buy dessicant dehumidifier if house not heated 24/7. Compressor ones fail at low temperature so unsuitable for UK winter.

Do your sums.....

Could you show me your working out please?

Thanks OP, picked one up. They have them stocked in Black as well - so grabbed one.

Out of stock on line, potential stock in store

I can’t comment on this one, but we got the one that is on the website at £119.99 only last week to deal with the bathroom until we get it replaced. The one we have is quoted at 20l per 24 hours and has a 5.5l tank which we probably empty twice if left on most of the day, not too noisy but you probably wouldn’t want to sit next to it all day. It’s become a bit of an obsession constantly checking the humidity levels and although it is taking a fair bit of water the levels are still pretty high at around 70% which I’m hoping will drop when the heating starts going on. Good though.

Same one as me possible, I got the 20l low energy model. Had it nearly a week, trying g to get the house to 55humidity. It seems to slowly be coming down but sometimes shoots back up to low 70s when drying clothes. I also bought I hygrometer I would recommend one of these as it gives me constant house temperatures and humidity. It says my house has never dropped below 17degrees and that without the heating on. For the average UK home I would recommend a compressor model.

Thank you OP. Just ordered.

My store didn't have many, got there around 11am, had 6 in stock. I bought one, someone else bought one. Doubt there will be any left at the end of the day!

Got home, plugged it in and it works well. It is a compressor model.It's fairly noisy but not as noisy as some of my older ones.

The only downside is that you can't see the water level in the bucket, bit of a silly omission in the design.

Looks good. If it has a humidistat then that's a very good price. This one (£69.99) doesn't. It only has one button, on/off

If you're producing 10L per day you must be drying your washing or have some other source of water? That's loads

Is that the one with the built in HEPA filter? I really wanted the Meaco Platinum because it has a built in HEPA filter, so can really help with allergies, getting all the dust and pollen out of the air. Unfortunately it's not on sale at the moment. Gutted when I say Maplin selling it for £75 but none in stock because they've sold out!

There seems to be some confusion regarding how these things work. The more common de-hum relies upon water-vapour from the air collecting upon a cold coil (and possibly freezing), and then as the de-hum does a defrost cycle the water drips into a collecting tank. The cold coil is made so by a conventional compressor/refrigerant arrangement much like a domestic fridge. The compressor plus a circulating fan can make for a noisy piece of kit.

A desiccant de-humidifier is a one-shot affair afforded by hygroscopic crystals sequestering water from the air and leaving a solution of the desiccant chemical in water in a collecting tank. Usually you discard the whole thing, or at least replace the desiccant as required. The latter doesn't require any power, it's simply exposed to the atmosphere. This is silent in operation.

Another type of dehumidifier uses the Peltier effect where an electric current creates a hot and a cold junction. Atmospheric moisture condenses on the cold junction, possibly freezing, and one way or another is collected in a tank in much the same way as it's compressor-based counterpart except that the refrigeration part is silent. A circulating fan (if fitted) might give rise to some noise, but it will likely be quieter than the compressor type overall.

Any sort of dehumidifier will accelerate the drying of anything, whether it be fresh plaster, clothes, water-based paint or whatever else.

Hope that helps!
