Horrible

 

When did finally did move it into place and crank it up I had some doubts about my ability to sleep though the noise, but let it stay because I just can't bear the heat any longer. After an hour the temperature didn't drop on either of my gauges in the...

A remote control air conditioner is a nice idea

Everything else. The backlit LCD screen is actually very brights, and cannot be turned off. It's MUCH bigger than I anticipated, but that's really my own fault. On the absolute lowest setting you would have to turn your TV up to hear over this monster....

Decent air conditioner

 

A few things that aren't dealbreakers: The remote control is made of cheap plastic, the unit is huge, and you're supposed to drain it every now and again. Having said that, I've been using the thing everyday for 2 weeks in New York City and haven't had...

Does an adequate job cooling a my apartment, but I agree with the other reviewer that it can't handle more than 400sq ft. It's on wheels, has a remote control, easy to install

It's big and heavy. It's a little loud, isn't energystar rated, and my exhaust tube doesn't fit tightly in into the unit so I had to get some extra sealing materials to keep the heat from escaping back into the room

Good Machine

 

The box arrived with a crushed corner and the unit had a broken wheel. But with a heat wave arriving here in the Northwest, I didn't want to be without it. My room is 400 square feet, with exterior walls that face SE and SW, in other words, the sun...

Sends out 58 degree air. Nice looking. On a hot day, 400 square feet is the absolute maximum that can be cooled to a comfortable temperature

BIG! Makes weird random sounds

DOA But all good now !!!!

 

NewEgg was great as they always are, the unit arrived at my door 2 business days after shipping.

Excellent cooling, portability, styling, remote control and ease of use. It would have received 5 eggs if it actually worked when it arrived

Arrived Broken .... I didn't want to send it back so I disassembled it only to find that the temperature probe was not connected to the controller board. Now that it works ... it works great
