Brought this unit form my upstairs Office / Server room and after letting the unit settle for 24 hours as recommended by Haier, the unit displayed a E22 error after plugging it in. Not a good start with a expensive A/C unit such as this. Also the...

Big, Hefty with remote and windows kit

Unit was dead on arrival ; Unit is a pain to get replaced plus no return policy from newegg doesn't help ; Without a expensive unit for over 2 weeks now ; Must dispose of the defective unit myself ; Window kit does network well with builder grade...

Selling Trash


Don't waste your time or money on this one.

It lights up when plugged in...if you can count that as a pro

The entire bottom of the "refurbished" unit was shattered into pieces, with two of the casters jammed so far up into the body of the unit, that it will not sit upright on a level floor. The exhaust vent is broken in the closed position and when forced...

Excellent additional cooling for data room


Since this room has air conditioning already there was no issue with high levels of humidity to remove (which could cause the unit to shut off). Installation is easy enough I would imagine for most normal consumers, but in my case I had to do some...

Have had this unit running for two weeks non stop on the highest cooling and has been an absolute life saver. The current air conditioning in the space only had the data room at 85 degrees which was not only bad for the servers but made it next to...

Should have purchased the higher BTU unit but this is fine for 10 servers and UPSs and misc networking equipment

Good Unit, bad packaging


The water tray is shallow and doesn't hold very much, and the auto evaporation process can't always keep up. Fortunately, the unit automatically shuts off when the tray is full, so it won't overflow. Be aware, if the unit isn't sitting level it could...

Quiet for a portable unit, but still louder than a window unit. This shouldn't be a surprise, as every noise-making component is completely inside the room ; Cools and dehumidifies well

Poorly packaged. Minor damage, probably caused during shipping. One of the hose adapters was cracked, so I had to apply a little duct tape to hold it together. A replacement is available from Haier for less than 5 dollars

I bought 2 units for my lab and loved them so I bought 2 more. There is too much dust in NYC air so I had to be able to cool and heat, control temperature and humidity and never open the windows. I placed them in different partitions of the lab so I...

Cools well but kind of noisy


I don't think that I would buy this again, from the info that i've read all Haier's are made in China and I have a window unit of another brand name 'made in the U.S.A. in my living room that is more cooling BTU's and its quiet compaired to this Haier...

Does a very good job keeping an average sized bedroom cool in the low 70's even on very hot days. This is my 2nd summer with the unit, exhaust duct is well made and plate that fits in the window is good quality, caster wheels roll well

Only real con is that its pretty noisy, in a bedroom you will hear the compressor kick on and off and fan noise is only quiet on the low setting, med and high are pretty loud so I keep the fan on low at night

Exactly as described


Probably read reviews on 20+ different units and came up with a few common problems associated with indoor portable units. They fill up with water in 3 hrs & leak, they are loud and the intake hoses and window connections are cheap.
