GE's smart dryer is feature-packed but could use more drying power

Dryers
[MUSIC] If you're gonna spend a lot of money on a dryer you'd better be getting plenty of features for the price. The new WIFI connected dryer from GE hopes to tempt potential shoppers with a laundry list of extra features and WIFI connected smarts. This dryer offers plenty of drying cycles, modes. It can handle lots of different kinds of fabrics. And clothing types, you also get a large 7.8 cubic feet capacity as well as an easy to use knob style control. What's really interesting about this dryer though are it's app connected smarts. Basically it has a wi-fi radio built into it and that links to your home network So you can see what is happening in the dryer from your phone or your tablet. But there are definitely some things I do not like about this dryer. First of all, its design is definitely on the boring side. Especially for a dryer that costs $1200. What's also annoying is that controls are back-mounted. That means that you have to reach over the entire dryer just to manipulate the controls. That's a pain. I could forgive all the other failings except for the fact that this dryer dries slower than other dryers we tested. So for all the hard work that GE Put into the smarts of this dryer hopefully next time they'll come out with a machine that dries a little faster
