I recently bought the EcoAir DD122FW Classic MK5 desiccant dehumidifier and I am very happy with it so far. It has effectively brought down the humidity level (monitored with a hygrometer) in my apartment and I am happy with its quiet operation.

I grew impatient waiting for the price of this dehumidifier to reduce to £150 at Amazon, where it's currently £169.98. Here's how I got it from Appliances Direct for £140.73 (where the price is £156.98 + £4.95 shipping):

1. Sign up to a one-month Which? trial for £1 via a link on the Appliances Direct product page. This will give you a £20 voucher for Appliances Direct.

(It's very easy to cancel the Which? trial. Simply send an email with the subject "cancel" to editor@which.co.uk including your Which? membership number and the name and address that you used to sign up.)

2. Visit Appliances Direct to make the purchase from Quidco for 2% cashback. My purchase amount tracked at £109.99, resulting in cashback of £2.20

So that makes:
£156.98 (price)
+ £4.95 (shipping)
- £20 (Which? voucher)
+ £1 (cost of Which? trial)
- £2.20 (Quidco cashback)
= £140.73

The DD122FW-Simple is only £114.99 from Amazon.co.uk currently (I got mine at £99.99 Lightning deal)
so be sure the the electronic control panel is worth the extra cost/hassle.

Definitely classy by comparison with De Longhi DEM10 and Aldi's special Midi (both returned as very inferior products).

Just for the record this one also has an automatic swing on the air outlet and an ioniser which the Simple does not.

Here's a comprehensive review of the posted dehumidifier:

And here's a review from the same site of the Simple model mentioned by mk-donald:
http://www.dehumidifier-reviews.co.uk/ecoair-dd122fw-simple

They summarise the differences between the two models as:
"‘1. Simple’ model does not have an ioniser
2. ‘Simple’ model has an analogue control panel:
With a rotary dial to set humidity
With no timer function
With no automatic ‘louvre’ settings
3. Price – ‘Simple’ model is cheaper"

Of course, if you weren't going to use the extra functions of the Classic model then the cheaper Simple model would be better for you.

Signing up for and subsequently cancelling the 'Which?' trial took me two minutes for a £19 saving.

At £140.73, this represents a saving of £29.25 on the current Amazon price of £169.98.

Only very rarely and for a very short time has it ever been cheaper at Amazon:

Wouldn't buy anything from Appliances Direct - they take your money and fail to deliver your goods! Have disgusting customer service and repeatedly lie to customers - stay away!
