I made a few modifications given my previous experience with these units and would like to share them with you:
1. I added a filter to the INTAKE side. I bought a sheet of basic air filter (this is a washable DuPont carbon air filter). Often the reason units stop working is they become dirty in the bowels of the machine you just cant get to and a cheap filter goes a long way to extending the units life.
2. I REALLY made an effort with the window installation. The units I've had in the past came with a sticky on one side foam strip to bridge the inevitable gap which allows air through. My only complaint with this unit is that it did not come with one of these (why I subtracted one star). So what I did - and it worked brilliantly - was to use the foam packing that the unit came in. It came with two densities and worked perfectly using dble sided sticky tape and a Stanley knife on the top, bottom and sides.
3. My third tip is about emptying the water. Nothing comes with unit to help. What you need it a shallow rimmed dish (The Ikea KALAS plate is PERFECT) and a smoothie straw (Bed Bath & Beyond) which is just wider diameter straw cut to desired length. This fits the spout like a glove. It can be done alone but better with two people. When emptying you will need the shallow dish, a straw and a container to toss the water into so you're not dashing to the kitchen 5-10 times. Have one person at the back - I use my 9 year old - and one larger person a the front. With shallow dish and straw in place the larger in front person tips the unit towards the rear. The rear person says when to stop and will empty the shallow dish into the other container with out having to get up then tell the 'tipper' when to resume. Do this till empty.
4. This unit comes with two holes, one intake and one venting. There is a flaw in the design in that the exit holes out the window are RIGHT NEXT TO EACH OTHER. Imagine two mouths glued side by side one inhaling one exhaling. The inhaling/intake side is going to breath IN the hot exhaled/venting air. What I did was to saw off a portion of the PVC slider (it was just going in the bin) and attach it like a wing between both outside holes. Perfect!
Many have made mention of the noise. The sound doesn't bother me and I have it next to my desk where I work all day in my living room. It' very subjective.
I have tried to attach 8 descriptive photos. Yes, I would recommend this product.

2016 UPDATE: I ordered this in June of 2013. I was prepared for disappointment as I'd had two other units (different brands) that were utter disappointments. It's three years later and each year I pull this unit out of the closet it fires up flawlessly after a less than 10 minutes of install time done no less by my 11 year old. I have however, changed how I handle the filters. The same (filter) sheet I initially bought is still providing the material needed. I now only cut out one disc and this I place OUTSIDE/OUTDOORS. What I mean by this is that I place the filter where the air/INTAKE is from the outside NO LONGER inside the machine. This is much easier and does the trick! I will adjust the photos ASAP to show what I mean. I've received A LOT of queries about what type of filter. Don't overthink it; any filter you can cut to size that's recommended for air filtration can be used. This is an amazing unit and is the best money I've spent!!
I am very happy to report this is a dual hose system which allows the unit to perform more efficiently. The construction of the hoses are way better than the Honeywell, these hoses are tough plastic with a sort of rubbery surface. The Honeywell is a bit smaller and sleeker in design but not designed as functional as the Whynter. The position of the hose inlets on the Whynter are very good, angled and away from air intake so you can push the unit against the wall without blocking air flow.
Lot's of other reviewers say both the Whynter and the Honeywell are loud, I find them surprisingly quite when compared to window units especially because they tend to rattle the cheap plastic after a few seasons of use, that drove me nuts and was the main reason I switched to portables, it's all smooth white noise.
The Honeywell construction feels cheaper and the hose is a sad story, it's thin plastic and bulky connector into the window is just goofy, The functionality in design while more attractive and compact its terrible in the sense that you can't push the Honeywell against a wall because the air intake vents will be blocked. The electronics on the Honeywell seem to be light years more advanced than the Whynter. Overall I think the Whynter is a better unit.
The window vent is ok, I've never met one I liked and probably never will... At least I can say this one is a thicker more rigid plastic than the Honeywell. I always silicone all the gaps and holes and anywhere I see light shining through. Silicone peels up very easily and doesn't cause any damage to the surfaces.
