    No, it's in the hall way, very airy though but not air-conditioned.

    The blue backlit LCD no big deal lah, very bright... my small one scared to go out into the hall way when lights are off because of the blue backlit LCD. More important the Dry Cabinet does what it is suppose to do inside the cabinet.

    If I can opt without the blue backlit I will opt for that if have option.

    Yah, AD series is analogue setup with digital hydrometer. Not the DHC with closed feedback system.

    So no worries, not the older models...
    The other DHC models is about the same except the two buttons are orientated differently and no blue LCD backlit. (You can see the older DHC displayed in the catalogue)

    Same here... very bright... disturbed my sleep so much (coz it glared at me) until i had to move my dry cabinet to the living room.

    Sometimes worried that LCD will burn out but it has 5 years warranty... what the heck.

    I wonder why such a premium price over DHC. but at least i know i got it cheaper. digihub selling at 252. and i got it at 208. I am wondering if carrefour gave me the wrong unit. haha. I think i was suppose to get 80L but end up getting 100L.

    Well, the control systems are pretty sensitive and expensive to develop.
    In addition, with the DHC, you don't have to tune the analogue knob. It'll set the RH as you require.

    Is there something wrong? I seem to never see it goin below 43% before. Also from 55% to 47%,....it took almost 3 hours to achieve that.

    Anyone please help.
    Also, is the meter always illuminated with blue light when its plugged in? Does it (blue light) goes off after a while? Mine is always on 24/7.
    Upgraded mine from DB-036 to a DHC-060 last Saturday too.

    I believe because the capacity of the cabinet is bigger, it needs more time and energy to remove the moisture, try to leave it on for a few more days and see. But I think RH of 45% is good enough.

    Yap, The meter is always illuminated with blue light when plugged it. If you find the light a distraction, you can cover it with a cloth like I do.

    initially, i thought of getting a 40L DHC, but i went to carrefour and saw the AD-40, which is so small.......so i decided to go for the dhc-060. for 30 dollars more (dhc-40 is 208) i thought i would be paying for a bigger better motor, looks like the additional 30 is just for the additional metal for the 20L increase......... the blue light is not a distraction, quite nice in fact.......btw,....my father used to use a Eureka dry cabinet, almost 10+ years old liao......they are wide and big....not like digicabi,...narrow and tall. the make looks better....more classy......its dumped at a corner of our room,...not in used for 10+ years liao...

    Hi there,

    Actually got my DB-036 around 5 to 6 months back only when I officially got my DSLR and a few lenses. But the number of my equipment is on an increase so thought of upgrading to a bigger one. Check out Digi-Hub and saw that they do trade-in so contacted them to place an order for a DHC-060.
