The NewAir portable AC definitely works. Lots of cold air comes pouring out of this thing, but it may not be exactly what you're looking for. It's good for some things and not so good for others. Let me explain.

I have an office/media room on the top floor of my house. It's basically an attic/loft that gets pretty warm in the summer. Central air is pumped into the room, but not much air comes through the vents. My homeowner's association will not allow window AC units, so I thought this would be an excellent alternative. The unit is portable and the window exhaust vent is not noticeable from the outside. The unit looks nice and is sturdy. I like the remote control and the digital thermostat on the front of the unit. It rolls nicely on it's casters. Hooking up the hose and exhaust vent was easy. However, my expectations may have been too high.

First, the room is about 150-200 square feet. The unit is not able to cool the room down much at all. The room is tolerable if you're sitting with the unit pointed in your direction as you can feel the cool air. That's about as good as it got. Also, the hose and exhaust vent got really hot during operation. Not sure if the heat radiating out from it canceled out the AC, but it was noticeable. To the unit's credit, the room has a skylight that acts just like a magnifying glass, so I'm sure some of the heat in the room is the result of it. Plus, there are three other windows with only blinds pulled. Maybe putting some opaque curtains up would help keep the temp down.

Second, the unit is very loud. Even on the low setting the compressor fills the room with a loud buzzing sound. If I'm working at my computer with headphones on, it's not a problem.

I have always used an evaporative cooler since I live in a low-humidity environment. It works really well unless it get over 96 and this year was especially warm so we decided to get an AC for the bedroom, the warmest room. I did lots of comparing, reviewing and trying to figure out exactly what would end up being the best value. I saw this product and it was something I hoped would work.

It came quickly. The company sends you the FedEx number so you can track it and know when to expect it. After opening it, I was glad we went portable instead of window unit. It looks pretty cool and isn't too huge. The thing for the exhaust in the window looks good when viewed from outside the house. The air comes out very cool and gives instant relief. It isn't loud. The remote is nice - I didn't think we would use but we do. Not having to empty the water is a handy feature also.

I am really happy with this AC. :)

I purchased this a/c a few days ago to cool off our family room (approx. 140 sq feet) with adjoining kitchen (approx. 120 sq feet). The description says it can easily cool up to 400 sq feet; however, I think it falls extremely short. It was about 92 today (very hot for Seattle) and it took all day just to get below 80 degrees in these two rooms using this unit. My recommendation is to use this for only one room, not to exceed 200 sq feet, e.g. a bedroom or office. Don't believe the hype that a portable 12,000 btu unit can perform cooling comparable to a window unit. This one is probably very good for one room, but struggles terribly to cool over 200 sq feet. I do like the fact I don't have to empty the water.

This 12,000 BTU unit works like a dream. It blows cold all day, is quiet, and given enough time, it actually cools most of my 1200 square foot house, which is far better than its rated cooling ability. Still, is is designed to be used as a room air conditioner. My only issue with it was the fact that the window kit wasn't quite large enough for my largest windows in the living room. But all it took was a call to the manufacturer, Amcor, and for $7 plus postage they sent me a second window kit to extend the first one. The result is perfect, exactly what I needed. A hard-working AC unit that can be moved from place to place if I want... or even used in my studio outbuilding. Highly versatile and extremely well made. Would recommend to anyone who doesn't have or want central air or window units. Finally, someone tagged this product as an evaporative cooler (swamp cooler) which it is NOT. It is a true air conditioner with a powerful compressor.

Well, needless to say this product wasn't my best purchase. The thermostat really didn't work - If the unit was set to a certain temperature, it would stop cooling 5 degrees above that temp. So frustrating! Also, this unit is so loud when the compressor switches on. We now have the Sharp a/c unit from Home Depot (a much more expensive model), and the difference is amazing... I will say the air was cold however, when the unit was cooling...

I will say this company was great about the return. They immediately sent a call tag to return the item (at their cost), and quickly issued the credit. I would definitely buy from them again - just not this product...

This unit worked great the first day, the next few the condenser wouldn't turn on despite setting it for a low temp. Today it is working again, but it is 98 outside & very humid so any cooling feels good. The description says it is quiet. It is like the old A/C wall units in cheap hotels, not quiet at all, even with the fan on low. I'm keeping it because I have health issues with the heat and must have A/C. The window vent is awkward, I had to cut styrofoam to get it to fit and stay in the window, I had to use tape and I hated to put it on the window frame. I'm giving it a 3 of 5 because it is portable, better than having to have multiple window units.
