Stay COOL and breathe fresher air with our 12,000btu units. Ideally cools an area up to 400sq.ft. Effectively improves air circulation in poorly ventilated spaces and maximizes energy efficiency. Uses new UL required LCDI plug. Self Evaporating Technology during the cooling process, water is extracted from the air into the unit. Most of this water is then recycled and used to cool the cooling coils and make it run more efficiently, cooling as well as energy. Continuous drainage highly recommended when using Heating mode. Exhaust hose installation required and all standard accessories included.

plug into any 120v outlet
removes much hummidty
Somewhat noisey but acceptable just need to crank TV volume
Doesn't really drop temp much for size of room
Room temp at start 78Deg will not drop lower than 75Deg sad
Bad performance if looking for permanent solution
That aside, the unit cools well and it is what it is ( a big portable unit). The remote works well (although, hilariously, it opens the tray on our dvd player too) and it was packed well.
The fan on the model we were loaned only had two speeds which were hardly any different. Fast and slow were very subtle differences. The machine has wheels but is bulky and heavy. The hose is large, about like what you'd see on a clothes dryer, and fits into a window for exhausting the hot air. As most people have mentioned, the water that needs to be drained is the biggest problem and is poorly designed. There is a rubber plug at the back of the unit near the floor. You have to stand on your head to get to it, and once removed you have to be ready for a gush of water. In our current weather situation here in CA, we were having to drain the unit every two hours, and so it would not run through the night without this having to be done. I dragged in a projection stand and put it on it, bought some clear plastic hose, and stuck it into the rubber outlet on the back. This worked, but the unit then started to leak around the edge of the drip pan in a place that had no drain plug. It just leaks in places where it shouldn't. If you put this on a wooden floor, you would no doubt find that if your unit also leaks the floor could be damaged. For the hose situation to work, you also need to tilt the machine so that the relatively flat drip pan can drain. But I think you're getting my point, that now we are having to design things just to make the unit work right in the first place.
This is way too much effort for a product that is supposed to be used indoors. I would recommend a window unit over this contraption, and mostly because of the unacceptable way it handles the removal of normal condensation which is a well understood byproduct of any air conditioning system.
