AC Model FAA055P7A


I've got it in 3 days

Very easy to install, not loud at all, nice design, good purchase for this money

Pleasantly surprised


Overall, great product would recommend - rooms bigger than 260sq might be a bit much to cool as the shear size of the machine would not be conducive to heating costs.

For th Size of my Room (full bed, 40LCD, computer and 4 drawers/closet with a 4x4 walking space,) it cools extremely well. Almost too well, I find myself setting the temperature at 80 and it's great ; Clean ionizing air technology can make a gym locker...

For a mini compact AC this thing was pretty big. I had to use my "go-go gadget tools" to hack my window into opening 4 inches more. Package came missing 3/8inch screw to secure the fail safe bar on the window- had to run to Home Depot. In addition, I...

more bad than good


Cheaply made. The top was warped so when putting on the top rail, I had to use my own long screws but, because of the warp, it left a space between the top rail and the top of the air conditioner so I had to putty it to prevent leakage. One of the...

I like the remote but it's my first AC with a remote so no biggy there

Lets the daylight in through the inside vents, also cheaply made

Very loud


Reading the reviews maybe I got a bad (made in china) unit? Returning the unit is not a easy/cheap option.

Free shipping

Very loud when the cooling starts (after few minutes you turn the unit on !?)

Cheap chinese slave labor junk / Bad Newegg customer support


It sure would be nice if newegg had decent customer service and also if all of the product listings had accurate information on every aspect of the products including where the items are made.


Newegg told me that this was made in the U.S.A. but when I received it I saw very clearly on both sides of the box "Made in china" (which explains why so many people have gotten bad units) and when I contacted newegg they said I would have to spend...

Does the job!


My central air unit in my home which is 20 years old, finally gave out and I currently don't have $7000 to replace it. These little units do the job. Each unit will only cool one room in the house. I have one in each of y 3 bedrooms and one in the...

Quiet operation, not silent ( you want silent, spend $500) ; Best feature of this unit is the Energy Saver. When in use, the Energy Saver will cycle the fan speed up and down as needed and will physically turn the unit off when the desired temperture...

The mounting bracket is not the best but nothing that $10 at the hardware store cant fix

Frigidaire FAA055P7A Mini Compact 5,200 BTUs Room Air Conditioner White


I might have refused delivery, if UPS didn't just leave it on my porch. In the future, no more bulk items from Newegg for me.

It cools reasonably well (at least as well as a 5.2k BTU A/C is expected to)

It arrived with a gnarly dent on the top rail/guide. I had to work at it with a prybar and some scraps of wood just to get it straight enough that the side panels would slide through

Awesome A/C Unit


Free shipping makes this an ideal purchase.

Great little unit. I have a 651 Sq Ft Apt, keeps me cool and comfortable. Installed in the bedroom, the sound isn't too bad, I can easily sleep through it on very hot nights

Nice Cold Power Saver


Some minor assembly required. Careful of the back fins. When first plugged in, takes a couple minutes with fan on before it starts cooling, so give it time.

Bought on sale, what a deal even with shipping. Makes a LOT of COLD air. Digital thermostat & auto fan functions work great. Super efficient, Energy Star rated; will save me enough money on power to pay for it in one season, thanks to demand power...

Weird rotating disc louvers aren't particularly great at steering the massive air output. I keep getting an odd "dirty socks" smell, hoping it will get better with use. If not I will try flushing it out
