As far as general drying goes this works fairly well. I'm not thrilled with how the Sensor Dry settings/controls don't let you change the heat level directly, but I've been able to work around that fairly well so far. On the other hand, I think the "Steam Refresh" function works absolutely dreadfully. As far as the temperature settings go, when you select a particular Sensor dry cycle, you can't change the heat level. If you select the 'Normal' Cycle' for example, you get a Heat setting of 'Medium", a default Dryness level of 'Normal', and a time setting of 41 minutes. So far, so good. If you want to change the dryness level, this is selectable. But if you decide you want 'Low' heat instead you can't do that without picking a different Sensor dry cycle (that has a Low setting by default). I can generally work around this by rotating the dial until I find a Sensor-Dry setting with 'Low' (like 'Casual'). But it seems like it would be simpler if you had at least one Sensor-Dry cycle which allowed you to choose Heat, dryness, and maybe time. (You can only do that with 'Timed Dry' on this model as far as I can tell. That is purely based on time and not a Sensor dry cycle). The thing I'm really unhappy with on this dryer is the 'Steam Refresh' cycle. When it comes to the part of the cycle where the Steam is supposed to start, it shoots a notable amount of liquid water (not steam) onto your clothing. At the end of the dry cycle, you have a shirt with a lot of splotchy wet areas you can see and feel along with normally dry areas. If it didn't shoot out liquid water at the start I'm guessing that this feature would probably have worked well. After working with Sears service, this appears to be just how it works. To me this seems totally unusable. If I had to rate this without the Steam feature, I probably would have given this 3-4 stars.
