One key point - it has two hoses - input and output (not one like many units out there). It's very good at evaporating the water it takes out of the room (the two hoses are supposedly responsible for this efficiency). I have yet to empty the tank. The unit comes with a window package that holds the tubes in place (its made of heavy duty plastic).
As to moving it around, no big problems - it is a beast to move on the stairs, but ..... its an air conditioner, not a fan.
I normally use it to cool down a 20x20 room (9 foot ceilings). It does take longer than I'd like, but if it's a humid night, it gets the room in a "sleepable" condition in about 1 hour.
The reason for not giving it 5 stars is that the remote control gives you options that you can't get from the panel. If you lose the remote, you lose the functionality (there may be a secret set of buttons you push to get the function, I haven't figure them out yet). The manufacturer's site is lacking in docs.
The wheels roll fine on the dorm room carpet, I've had this A/C for over a month and have yet to empty the water tank, and this A/C gets my room as cold as I could ever want it, and could get it even colder if I so desired.
I got this unit on sale for ~$230 and this has been a great investment.
This unit is supposed to have a built in reservoir tank for holding water. The compressor is supposed to shut down when tank is full and a indicator light is supposed to come on to alert that tank needs drainage. I never had a problem with water leaking from the drain plug. The leakage had nothing to do with the water removal hose. It was leaking underneath.
It may have been damaged in transport or it may just be a faulty unit. I really don't know. The reservoir tank is built into the unit and cannot be seen. I had no desire to pull out a screw driver and take it apart. It is possible it was cracked, but it's also possible it's poorly made. Either way, a real disappointment. It was very effective in cooling. I wasn't inclined to try a replacement, instead I purchased a window unit. One other thing, the dual hoses are expandable, but if you expand in an effort to move unit away from window, the intake and exhaust hoses pop out. The don't lock into place well.
Well, when we finally did have days hot enough to use it we took it out and set it up in a room. We discovered several hours later our carpet was completely soaked with water. We had to replace all of the carpet which started to smell like mold very quickly, and had to sanitize the area to kill mold spores before placing new padding and clean carpet. Unfortunately, the 30 day guarantee Amazon gives had passed. My husband found that the bottom water reservoir had a crack in it. We contacted the company and they made us pay 60 bucks to ship it back to them, even though I explained we just needed a replacement of the part and could fix it ourselves. My husband is a brilliant engineer and was fully capable of replacing the part. The company said no, insisting their own people had to fix it and told us they would send us a REFURBISHED product in exchange. I was not happy about sending back a brand new product for a refurbished one, but the customer rep assured me it would be as good as a new one.
They sent us the refurbished one, by that time it was well into cool autumn.Read more ›
-It arrived in great packaging. I was actually impressed with this aspect of it.
-Amazon's great customer service let me return the defective unit free of charge. They paid for shipping and no restocking fee.
-Short version: Dead on arrival.
-Product was greasy to touch and had black smudges all over it (I saw another review which stated this too). Even after wiping it down, it was still greasy...
-The product was leaking oil all over the place. On the air conditioner's bottom foam padding, there was oil all over the place (aka, it was leaking inside the packaging before it I unpacked it). I didn't notice this right away, so I took the thing out and started setting it up. When I moved it, I saw a bunch of oil on my rug and put some cardboard under it. 5 minutes later, parts of the cardboard were saturated with oil. I think part of the packaging was slowing the rate at which the oil flowed out of it. I figured I'd give it a shot anyways, so I plugged it in and gave it a whirl. As soon as the part which cools the air turned on, it just kept getting louder and louder until I turned it off in fear of it melting down/blowing up/setting fire. It was REALLY loud, and I'm guessing this was because all the oil that was supposed to be inside it is now in my rug.
