Pretty good overall

 

I got 2 of them for my 600 sq foot apt (with built in, but non functional swamp cooler - woohoo) 1 is absolutely perfect, quiet, evaporates most of its waste water, etc. The other one is loud has to be emptied of water every few days and alternates...

Cost. .Sleek design. Remote. Energy Saver Mode

Questionable quality control process ; Now actually capable of cooling the space you'd expect from 13000 BTU (11000 btu should do 500ish sq feet) ; But I think that has to do with the strange bottom to top design and the slimness. It just doesn't move...

Intolerably noisy

 

Now I may have gotten a bad unit. It does cool and all the controls work. But it rattles and sounds like a cement mixer is in the room. Problem is it would cost me $70 to ship it back and there's no guarantee the next one would work any better. Avoid...

It was cheap and it cools

This thing is so noisy that I can't even use it in my living room. It's the noisiest thing I've ever heard. I bought it a week ago but today is the first time I've really used it and I'm shocked they would sell something like this. I'm going to take...

Works and looks great.

 

I have this raised up off the floor draining into a bucket. Proper ventilation and separation from the wall as the manual CLEARLY states. If you feel the tube it gets hot so it should go straight up away from the unit 30 inches and give you a...

So a buddy scored one of these for me on special and Im super happy with it. His unit had some dents and dings but mine looks brand new. Only the refurb sticker would have fooled me. I use it to dehumidify and cool and its able to do that in about a...

My only real con is not being able to run the exhaust without using the whole unit. Also I found a way to get the oscillation to run all the time. turn remote on out of range and turn on auto sweep or w/e. Turn on unit and go to fan or cool and press...

Great Room Coverage & Some Cracks

 

Lg overall is a good brand. It is refurbished and the model seems to have had problems over other models. It being refurbished I figure they have solved the problems with the fixes. It was only $259 for a nearly $500 unit and made sure I got 2 year...

Cooled like a champ quickly. During a heat wave made it comfortable. During a heat wave and to better assure health it is definitely two or so steps beyond tolerable conditions in humid hot weather. Works out of the box, easy hookup to the window with...

Can't seem to over perform to the point of needing to turn it off while on the lowest set temp in a room sized below specs but it is open to other rooms as well. Item came with some cracks and dings.Due to the heat wave I don't want the loss of the...

Excellent portable A/C Unit

 

This is the third LG portable A/C unit we have purchased from Home Depot. They are used in remote computer server rooms and do an excellent job. Highly recommend this unit.

Great unit, perfect for our needs

 

We have a small server room at the office that was simply running to hot. This took the temp in the room down almost 10 degrees. Easy to set up, produces nice cool air. We vented the unit into the hallway in the office - that does push some warm air...

Good

 

The window kit has to be modified to fit your particular window. I still don't have it really correct, but I will!

Unreliable Air Conditioner

 

I bought my unit in April 2011, and the initial unit failed within weeks. I contacted the manufacturer, a service technician came to the house, and I waited weeks to be told the part was not available. I returned the unit to the manufacturer, and a...

did not live up to expectations, very loud, only worked about 20 hours

 

Got this unit to cool a small room that the wife uses as a hobby room. I've had the unit just over 1 year, with only about 20 hours of use on it. The compressor went out, the good news is the compressor is covered under warranty, but the labor is not....

LG Portable AC

 

Good cooling, but it's LOUD. I wish it was quieter for a room a/c unit. The first one came in a broken box and was damaged. Home Depot did a great job and making the return/ and replacement an easy process.
