Dual Hose Design:
Separate intake and exhaust hoses allow for more air intake, more cooling power, and a more stable air pressure (can be used as single hose as well).
Energy Efficiency Ratio:
This portable air conditioner has an impressively high 11.2 EER, meaning it consumes significantly less energy than others in its class.
Equipped with an auto-drain system that exhausts all condensate, the need to manually drain water from the unit is eliminated**.
Easy-to-Use Window Kit:
Venting your portable air conditioner is a simple three step process, and your purchase includes all the necessary materials-- Simply connect the vent hoses to the back of the unit, remove the caps from the window vent kit and connect it to the exhaust hoses.
Designed to be an environmentally friendly product, this portable air conditioner uses non ozone-depleting R410A refrigerant and is made with all RoHS compliant components that are free of harmful chemicals.
Three (3) Speed Fan:
Find your perfect setting and control noise and air output by choosing a high, medium, or low fan setting.
Energy Saving Programmable Features:
Cut costs by setting the unit to run only when you need it, and have it efficiently cool your space before you even get there using the 24 hour programmable timer-- The timer allows you to set the unit to cycle on automatically, or once it is on, you can set it to automatically turn off.
Intelligent Auto Restart:
This unit’s auto restart function stores your settings, so that in case of a power outtage, it will pick right back up where it left off when power is regained.

Gets the Job Done
Pros: This unit doesn't work miracles, but it does get the job done.
Cons: Its optimal in spaces that aren't partitioned. I imagine this unit could keep a 500 sf room very cool if it was only used in that room. It also has a hard time working if the ambient gets above 90, so the unit needs to run almost continuously if you live in say, Phoenix or during heat waves.
Other Thoughts: All in all it's a decent unit. I still think a through-window is a better bet but if like me you live in a building with a challenging electrical layout it does provide the flexibility to setup anywhere within about 6-7 feet of an outlet. The air tubes can also be stretched to about 4' with no loss in efficiency. As a portable unit setup was also extremely easy. The only tool you need is a philips head screwdriver and you're set. Also a hacksaw that can cut PVC is advisable if you want to cut down the window extensions.

Depends on your needs
Pros: Seems to be quality built
Cons: The water tank holds only 5 cups by my measure--which it currently fills in about 3 hours. Not only is the reservoir small, it is not removable and the drain is only about 2" from the base of the unit, so until you go the hardware store and buy a piece of 1/2" ID tubing, and place the unit on some kind of base, you can look forward to figuring out how to pick up the 75lb unit high enough to put something under it so you can drain the unit.

Pros: Very nice looking unit, black with a silver panel and blue digital read outs. All of the parts and hoses are included so instal was very easy. The window panel parts are made of a heavy pvc plastic that can be cut very easily if need be. Dual port intake and exhaust. Remote works great.
Cons: I'm disappointed at the cooling capabilities of the unit. I will say that my expertise on these types of units is limited but I do know window units and central air. I could not get it to cool below 76f with outside air intake/exhaust. Outside temp is 85f here in Texas and starting to go up.. So I did the recirculate room air and got it down to 72f........ Not cool enough in my opinion for a 300sqf room. ESPECIALLY for $479....a little louder than a window unit.
Other Thoughts: Had I not needed this type of unit I never would have bought it. I needed it for a front room and did not want a window unit popping out the window. Weird but the fan speeds are very close to being the same, fast. I'll wait to see if it fails....

quick shipping, decent AC unit
Pros: Cooling area = 650 sq ft
Cons: a bit noisy, but expected for what it is... think fan noise, air moving sounds, not mechanical or motor sounds...
Other Thoughts: The unit works well enough, but I've not owned other portable AC units to compare. I've had small window units which are intrinsically more efficient designs but don't have the flexibility that the portable unit brings. I have a 650 sqft apartment. It doesn't get very hot in summer but far too hot for me and can be sweltering with all of my PCs & electronics running. This unit keeps up with the demand. It's been in the 80s recently, and my apt is too large for a single AC unit, but rarely gets over 75F in the apartment and usually is cooler. It seems reasonably well made and has good styling (for an AC unit). I'm happy with it so far.
