attractive color


It was very stylish but took a long time to cool my small bedroom. I was hoping it would cool my bedroom and a hallway with it being 12000 btu but my 5000 BTU kicked out cooler air than this. Maybe it was just a dysfunctional machine I got, but I...

Fits the bill for me


Does the job for me - bedroom use with air conditioning on hot nights and fan on moderate nights. Fit my expectations (ie I did not expect this mobile fan to act like central air conditioning so am happy with it). Cools down the room fairly quickly....

Super cooler

Consumer review by:

Excellent unit.


This unit has cooled our master bedroom quickly and comfortable. It is only as noisy as a motel A/C unit. But you must vent it out a window with the enclosed flexible hose for it to work properly.

Great unit well worth the money


I am so pleased with this unit! In the past I had problems with a floor unit and was very hesitant on getting another but I am so glad I did. The level of cool air is fantastic and the features are great!
