After two breakdowns of the traditional cheap dryers (One even went on fire in the middle of drying!), it was finally decided that buying cheap dryer days were over. The difference has been dramatic! Whereas, before I would deal with an array of overly shruken clothes, now this problem no longer accures. Before, I could never dry "Dry Clean Only" clothes, now I can with its special setting. Before, it would underdry or overdry my clothes, now it sensor drys it, and I can come to "just right" clothing. I also love the speed dry button, which allows me to get my clothing done in a hurry! And in the end, it gives you a pretty tune telling you when your laundry is ready. It is definetly more expensive buying an LG Sensor Dry, however, you can save money in other areas, such as energy usage, and time. Plus, no longer will you have to replace your cheap dryer each year.
