Terrible unit


Doesn't cool well. I may return it. Very poor unit. I will try another brand. Just doesn't push cold air

Best Portable AC on the Market!


The Danby 8,000 BTU cools so fast and it's only set to low.. Wow! No more waiting for your old AC clunker to kick in. With the Danby, you'll feel it immediately! Easy setup and the remote makes operating simple. I have already recommended this to my...

Great price and Chills Extremely Fast

Works ok


Works ok but not better than a regular AC as it only cools a little.

NO After Sale Support


I sent 3 e-mails with a promise of a reply... nothing. I called all morning and either waited 30+ minutes on hold as "You're the next call in Que" message, or they blatantly hung up on me when I pointed out that the broken part was identified in their...

Great AC, price, and simple to install.


Excellent product, price, and easy installation. Like that it senses when condensate bucket is full and shuts down automatically. This is important but is not prominently stated on packaging.

It works as expected and you can move around as needed

There could be better info on packaging to help me know my concerns are covered

Great, but...


The air conditioner is great, functions well, and cools amazingly. The only issue is that it is really only made for a very small room. We had this installed in our living room, and it did nothing, but after moving it to our bedroom, it worked much better

Consumer review by:

Good for bedroom.


Does what we bought it for - cools an upstairs bedroom where the central air doesn't work adequately. But it does use a fair amount of power. Noise level isn't too bad.

Works well for upstairs bedroom where central air doesn't work well

Sucks up electricity

Good for a small room


Using it in a 350 square ft room when it was 85+ outside. The unit offers average cooling power. It cools the room but not as much as a window unit, better than just running it dehumidifier. Temperature dropped maybe 5 to 7 degrees. Cooled air coming...

Able to cool the room


Consumer review by:

Powerful NOT!


This AC unit is very underpowered. Would not cool a 12X12 room on an 80degree day by more then 3 degrees.

Consumer review by:

Never gets cool


I purchased this unit for the simplicity of it and it is that. The down side to it is, it never gets the room cool. It never gets the room lower then 82. I would not have bought it now knowing that. Room is 10x20
