REVIEW – Summer is fast approaching, and during the summer last year, I found out how much a dehumidifier was needed in my home. I did manage to get a small unit near the end of the summer, but this year I will be ready with this Vellgoo DryBox 2000 Dehumidifier.
What is it?
The Vellgoo DryBox 2000 Dehumidifier comes with a drain hose for convenience and covers up to 580 square feet. There is a small remote control that is also included and the unit even features a sleep mode.

This humidifier is mostly plastic. The control buttons are on the top, and there are air vents on each side. On the bottom of the right side there is the water reservoir that slides in and out and below the reservoir is the drain plug. The remote control is included and there is a magnetic area on the side to make sure that the remote stays with the unit. There is a LED night light on the side.
The Vellgoo DryBox 2000 Dehumidifier is very simple to set up and use. It is just about plug-n-play. Just choose your location and plug it in:
Once it is plugged in, you can use the control buttons on the top to turn it on, set the fan mode, and control the LED. In the following video I am going through the paces with the remote:
The two modes work well, and if this unit is near to you when you sleep, the whisper mode will be very much welcomed. I like the LED light but that is likely because it is not in my bedroom. It is bright enough that I would have to turn it off at night. It works well as a night light where I have it. I like that there is the option to add the included drain hose which means that it can be left unattended for long periods of time. After only about 7 hours, there was measurable water in the reservoir suggesting that the humidity in my basement is somewhat high:
What I like
- It is a simple design that works well
- Has a drain hose for use in an unattended long term mode
- The remote control
- The LED nightlight
What I’d change
- Nothing that I can say so far
The Vellgoo DryBox 2000 Dehumidifier works well for a semi-large space and for me it works well in my basement. It is quiet and the ability to attach a hose will be a great feature for anyone who can locate it close enough to a drain or large container that can accommodate much more water. It is the right size and has 2 modes, one of which is whisper quiet.
