A little noisy, but otherwise great


The unit can be a bit noisy when the compressor is running as it's louder than the fan on any setting. It's not just this specific unit, I have two of these from different sources Other than that, I'm quite happy with the unit. LIKES: * Remote control...

Not even close to worth the money


Very little airflow coming out of this thing. Very bulky and heavy unit that must sit within 4-5 feet of window due to exhaust length. Air coming out of it is also pointed at the level of your knee caps so your feet get cold while your upper body stays...

Keeping Cool


Seattle's weather has been crazy this year. It is so hot I wasn't able to do any house work without being hot and sweaty. This air conditioner covers my living room, dining room and kitchen. It keeps us cool and comfortable. Is worth the buy

Saving a big bucks


I live in Las Vegas and if I use my center a/c, I use 45 kwh per day at 110 degree and only 12 kwh for this one. Of course it only cools down the first floor and kichen and whenever the second floor gets cooler I can go to sleep at night. The drawback...
