Decent air conditioner, but loud.


The unit does work, but it takes longer to air condition a room compared to a traditional window unit of the same BTU range. The exhaust hose also needs to be insulated to keep it from throwing off heat back into the room.

It can cool a room. Not having to lift a window unit into a window

No attachments for virtical windows

Awesome for a small room.


This thing is super easy to transport and set up. It just didn't cool as big of a room as I thought it would.

Easy to set up

Wasn't as powerful as I would have liked

Cools the house really good!


I was so excited at how easy this was to assemble and how cool it made the apartment. You have clean his every two weeks as instructed, because the coolness will get you spoiled and it gets warm. It is also was a lot bigger than I expected.

Easy to set up

You have to clean it every two weeks or else it gets warm & dusty

This unit is perfect to supplement our not so good central air in our pre-war apartment in New York City.

Kept our living room cool when we had guests

Do not buy this ac. I threw away the box or i would have returned it! The air coming out the grille is 65 degrees at best.

Ease to operate

Will not cool over 100 sq ft

Great unit. Easy setup and removal.


We are loving the portable unit. Like the remote control and wheels work well.

Quick install. Quick cooling. Multiple settings

Slightly noisy, but no more so than any portable unit

Very Good unit


I bought this unit when my apartment a/c went out and they couldn't fix it for a few days. The unit is pretty quiet and will cool down a decent size room rather quickly. The only thing that I don't is that it was alot bigger and bulkier than I imagined...

easy to setup, decent price

bulky, drainage

The heat was on


During a recent heat wave a family member of ours was in some need of air conditioning after their central unit went out. A search that lasted for hours found this unit at a local best buy store; the set up was extremely easy if not a little...
