After a recent move I had to change from a gas dryer to a electric.. Samsung has always been a good brand and this dryer is more than I expected. The clothes don't take nearly as long to dry and come out wrinkle free. Load Capacity This front loader seems to hold more clothes and they come out with less wrinkles. Performance I was afraid that electric would cost more to operate but not true as the clothes seem to dry quicker and come out with less wrinkles. This machine out performs my old gas dryer that I was sad to have to get rid of. Ease of Use You set and forget. The machine does it for you. Durability I love this brand. Has a great reputation for quality and lasting. Design I like the design of this unit and it looks great in the laundry room. The stainless steel appliances all seem to be very popular now and I really didn't like them but this one was on sale so decided to go ahead and give it a try. Now I find I really like the finish on this and can't wait to replace some of my other ones as these wipe off easily and look great..
