Not Bad


I can't use a window unit in my living room--I don't live in the best neighborhood, and homes have been broken in to by pushing window units in first floor windows. I purchased this portable unit as a necessary alternative, and it's been OK. It is just...

Not Hassle Free - BIG Disappointment


I purchased this unit to use in spare rooms as they were occupied. The installation seemed easy and no hassle...until it comes to installing the vent hose to the couplings. Very difficult, kept slipping out, and continued to do so during operation. I...

Potential portability and price

The hose and coupling design, poor quality
