I was not really excited to try out a very basic dryer but we were limited on funds when we bought this. I will say that after a year and a half of more than two loads a day, this machine looks, sounds and performs just as good as the day we bought it. My mom bought a fancy LG set a month before we bought our dryer. Hers has been replaced and then she bought a different brand after the second LG broke. Well, her Samsung is broke now. I would buy this much cheaper and great performing machine again and again over paying the price of higher end dryers.
