Easy installation, works as expected.
This review is from: Midea Electric Trading Co 5,000 BTU Window Mounted Air Conditioner MWK-05CMN1-B
Pros: I'm no A/C expert, but for the price, the rated BTUs, and the size of the unit, I couldn't really ask for more. I haven't been able to test it under extreme (90-100 degree) weather conditions just yet, but it does keep the room cool under mid to high 80s temperatures.
Cons: None so far. I can't really say not having a thermostat on it is a con, as that wasn't expected on a unit in this price category. Though one would be nice, so it wouldn't run when technically unnecessary.
Other Thoughts: I've noticed most windows in apartments I've lived or friends live in have windows that slide open left to right, not the sash windows as in up and down, but I'll be hard pressed to find an air-conditioner that's designed for the former! While it's not that big of a deal (cut a piece of wood to fit the area the A/C doesn't fill, tape foam insulation around the edges for a tight seal), it would be nice to find more units designed for side opening windows versus up/down style!
