Samsung DV210AEW/XAA 7.3 Cu. Ft. Electric White Dryer Review

These days, decent drying isn't quite good enough. The Samsung DV210AEW/XAA is actually a good dryer, but it couldn't get to the level of performance that the best dryers manage to offer. While most cycles got clothes nearly all the way dry, it only reached the 100 percent mark when temperatures got higher than we like to see. There isn't much by way of extra features to make up for that lack of truly effective drying, either. It's unfortunate, really - this Samsung did well, just not well enough to make it worth purchasing at full price. If you can find it one sale - perhaps by a few hundred dollars below its $849 MSRP - it could be a great machine for those getting there first or second dryer. Shopping around, though, you may find other appliances for the same price that do a better job, take better care of your clothes, and give you more features to play around with.

Introduction

The Samsung DV210AEW/XAA serves as a decent budget appliance. Drying isn't perfect, temperatures aren't as subtle or gentle as some higher-end models, and extra features are kept to a minimum. With an MSRP of $849, that might seem like a lot of money for not a lot of appliance, but we found some pretty substantial discounts online. After taxes and shipping, you can easily find this Samsung for about $500, making this machine a decent purchase. Despite its flaws, the Samsung DV210AEW/XAA gets clothes nearly all the way dry on many cycles, and it's quite easy to use. It can be a great fit for consumers who are buying their first dryer, who want to keep costs down, and who don't want a lot of bells and whistles in an appliance whose purpose is quite straightforward.
