I would say that, after 4 days of heavy usage It's 12000 BTU's are NOT enough to refrigerate a 180 Sqf room with a big window facing South. (summer time, with just a 90F temp. outside)
Also, its has NO movable / adjustable air deflectors; they are fixed and the air flow is too low, given the fact that cool air goes down.
Another con, it's a sealed unit, meaning, you need to get special repair service to install a refrigerant charge valve in order to supply R407C ecologic gas, which is more expensive than others.
Mine started leaking water from the bottom. I disassembled it, and after 18 screws, couldn't find the problem. Went online and found some people with the same problem: there's a small hole (you need to take off the left cover) that had some lint and was obstructing the flow of condensation water to the sink below: I had to use a wire, back and forth and VOILA, no more leaks. THIS IS NOT EXPLAINED IN THE MANUAL.
Pros are it's portability and lack of installation.(holes, etc.)
Well worth the price. When once of the venting parts arrived broken, a friendly customer service person sent me a replacement within a few days.
I have already vacuumed the easy to reach pull out permanent mesh filter. The exhaust hose was Simple to install and only required my window to open 4 inches and could keep the Screen ON!
Haven't gotten the electric bill yet, but it works great.
I did extensive research for a month before selecting this product. It's about the size of a dorm refrigerator. It's level with my nightstand and it's light grey color seems to vanish in the room decor.
Only thing is I wish it were a combo heater, too.
In any event, I got a really great deal (and it is still a really good deal on Amazon with the free shipping!), and I am very happy with this A/C unit. My tenant is ecstatic that I got this for her, since it was in the upper 80's last night here in Florida. It cooled her master bedroom quickly, and she was able to sleep in comfort. Now that I have it, it's great for those emergencies when the A/C goes out in the house, and I am going to use it in the garage for my boyfriend's man-cave when he moves in! It says on the box that it cools up to 450 s/f (the size of a 20' X 23' room), so it would be perfect for the garage. It also has a remote control with a timer, which is a neat option. Although it is heavy, it has casters on the bottom for easy mobility.
Important item to note: if the unit is transported on its side, the unit clearly states to sit it upright for at least 4 hours for the oil to resettle in the unit. If this is not done, it may cool for a while, but then the unit can burn out and loose its cooling. (Maybe the person who had a mixed review didn't follow these warnings.) So, when you do buy it, I suggest leaving it upright for 4 hours before turning it on, just in case.
P.S. It was really easy to setup!

The a/c was delivered totally smashed-up, broken and not running. 'Dropped-shipped' is right-on. It was dropped before it was shipped. I returned it in the same condition.Published on June 25, 2010 by Eugene Summers
