We bought this dryer to upgrade from a dryer that was older and worn out. The difference is like night and day. This dryer does a great job of drying clothes, and the adjustable settings are easy to figure out through the use of the manual (it definitely helps to read the manual first, and we would have missed a couple important points if we had skipped the manual). It would be nice if they included the power cord instead of making you buy it separately, but the cord itself was pretty easy to attach. One area of improvement would be making the space to attach the cord a little bigger so that you have more room to maneuver the wires. But the wiring instructions were very clear (for both a three-prong and a four-prong plug). A very helpful feature is placing the lint filter on the top of the washer. It is easy to pull out and clean without needing to bend down to get it out of the door (like in older styles of dryers). It seems like a well-built dryer, and it came with a 10 year warranty on the motor and drum. Overall, the dryer has exceeded our expectations, and I would highly recommend it.
