Consumer review by: fauxpaw31 (



Researched unit and found a mix of good and bad. First unit was very noisy and contacted Delonghi to confirm this. Replaced unit and the new one seems to be doing fine. Use for cooling, fan and dehumidifier and so far no issues like pooling water that...

Assume that it's been sitting on its side while it was shipped to you, and leave it sitting upright for a day before turning it on. And read the directions.

Blows air. Air cold. Cold good ; My apartment is around 650 sq feet, and it cools my entire apartment very well

The slot that blocks the window is only about 38" or so, and my windows are taller than that. It's not really a problem for me to have a few square inches of open window but I guess some people might have a problem with that ; It's also kind of loud...

technical problems


The air conditioner has a nice design but the unit we received did not cool effectively the room. We therefore had to exchange it for another unit and were very disappointed.

worst product, buy be aware


Buy from local store and check location of service center.


rotary compressor started making knocking noice after 10 minutes. DeLonghi doesn't have service centre in MA. I will have to drive to Connecticut to drop off the unit and pick up the other day. The $200 saved is not enough to pay for the rental car...

Arrived just before the heat wave!


We don\'t normally see temps in the upper 90s in Upstate NY, but we did this week. [...] Our master bedroom is about 300 SF on the second floor, which gets full sun for several hours in the morning. We have 8 foot patio doors to a small deck and two...

Nice AC at a high price


There mus be other ones out there that are cheaper and quiter.

It is powerful and works well. We bought a heater and decide to get this brand

The packing was horrible. One of the wheels broke so I cannot wheel it from room to room without carrying it. It's too loud even with sleep mode

Pay a few extra dollars and buy it local from a hardware store so you know it isn't damaged from poor shipping.

I cannot say anything good about this air conditioner as it does not work

They do not pack them properly and we ordered two units, both were damaged and DO NOT work. Only one would even power on and when the compressor turns it almost knocks the unit over from the misbalance inside of it. Has an extremely loud knocking...

Good unit for the price


I reviewed 15 other similar products and read what limited reviews were out there before finally settling on this one. Granted it's only been running for a few weeks and I can't foresee how it will be in 6 months or a year but should there be issues,...

This unit was purchased/installed for a client 3 weeks ago to cool a 24U server rack in an 8x15 room with limited airflow and dripless operation was a must. Prior to installation, the room temp would spike around 91F and servers would send thermal...

None, and Newegg shipping was fast as always

No match for the heat wave


This looks good and is convenient to install. However, my 12,500 BTU model failed to cool down even a 250 sq ft room despite of its claim of 460 sq ft.

heat pump (not tested), easy to install

not cool, not dry
