If there is anything to point out as a negative, it is the energy consumption. While it is not horribly inefficient, there are plenty of models that can provide drying while using less electricity.

The maintenance and care is about what you would expect from a condenser style tumble dryer.

It does also have an indicator lights that can signal the user about when it is time to empty the water and clean the condenser.
