installation of window components and hose hookup not a problem...cools efficiently (room size 16 X 20)...good value for the price...attractive design...portability is good, but would recommend an extra set of window slide components for use in a...

It's cooler now...


As long as this unit lasts in 24/7 operation, I'll be very happy with my purchase. Lost 1 egg due to the exhaust hose not being longer. FYI: Newegg site doesn't list the exhaust kit I had to buy but the same company makes the unit and the kit.

Unit arrived quickly and in good shape. Unboxed and setup in about 15 minutes. Only assembly was the exhaust hose and connectors, which required a phillips screwdriver. Cooled room quickly and effectively. Haven't had to empty condensate (working as...

Exhaust hose is too short to exhaust through a drop-ceiling. I had to purchase an additional drop-ceiling exhaust kit (not cheap @ 150). Exhaust host isn't insulated and gets warm. Some air leaks into the room are required to replace air blown out...

Very good portable AC unit


I've used this for a few months now; but only when needed. Seems to be working very well. Blows lots of very cold air. I have not checked the energy efficiency. Window installation went smoothly. Both hose and cord were long enough for my installation...

Cool your room w/out emptying your wallet


It is a little loud if you run it all night b/c the condenser will kick on and off based on the temperature of the room. We just run it two hours before we go to bed and 1 hour after and it does the trick. I do not know about you, but I hate to be hot...

Portable AC


Just being portable is a huge PLUS. I am old man and can't lift a window AC and set up support brackets. This machine is fantastic and can just push it in a closet for this coming winter. Works great ! Cools nicely and dehumidifies great and no drain...
