    Okay, so after the latest batch of dehumidifier recalls, every single standalone dehumidifier I have or use has been recalled due to being a fire hazard.

    So...I'm trying to find a quiet one...

    Fluke 233

    Ok, I'll bite. I've seen adverts for the Fluke 233 on HVAC-Talk over the past few days. Has anyone used one? It looks awesome. I'm just worried how durable it'll be with the detachable display. ...
