I have a small room, 13 x 13. It gets hit by the sun every afternoon and gets insanely hot. This a/c unit helps a little, but can't keep up with the heat.

Great AC for the price and BTU's

Did not like


I usually dont purchase larger items soley because of pride but in this case I had a wake up call and did just that. I firmly believe you get what you pay for. This is not a quiet AC and it did not cool down my average size room much at all. Needless...

Excellent at cooling, loud from time to time


The best buy employee helped me carry this to the register, but not my car. I was worried I wouldn't be able to get it into the backseat when I tried to lift it and realized it's very heavy! It was too heavy for me to lift out of the box once I got it...

easy to install in window, cools apartment well

heavy, loud

Easy to use and set up.


All in all a good product. Works well and cools an area around 200 square feet. Attractive unit, however it is pretty loud if you are sleeping next to it. Has programmable thermostat and a fan only feature which is nice on cooler nights.

good price, easy to use, multiple settings, thermostat

pretty loud, fixed fan direction
