Cool summer nights Whynter SNO Arctica ARC 10D Stainless Steel Portable Air Conditioner


It's been about 3 weeks since I bought this A/C and it's been pleasant experience so far. I am now able to sleep comfortably without leaving the windows open and listening to the blaring of traffic. First, this A/C looks cool, I'm a guy and definitely...

Waste of time and money!


After researching for a portable, I decided to get this unit because 1) the stainless steel and 2) several 5-star ratings. Although I noticed there were some 1-star reviews as well, I figured perhaps just a few unlucky customers? Well, guess what? I'm ...

We love this portable unit

Good cooling rate, very nice looks and fair price.

It is awkward to lift, falls forward if your grip is wrong.

This unit arrived super fast which made me very happy for starters. It arrived via UPS in two days. I have had it for about 4 days and it have had it on for an average of 8 hours a day. It has work as advertised and has kept me and my cat very ...

Stainless steel, efficient cooling, pricing, remote control

Weight, loud, front vents get dislodged but are easy enough reinset

This is a very affordable buy that works and looks superb.

Maybe the weight and the responsiveness of the remote control that I hardly use anyways.
