loud & not so cool
This review is from: LG LP1311BXR 13,000 Cooling Capacity (BTU) Portable Air Conditioner
Pros: Looks good. Nice remote and touch controls. Love the auto swing vent.
Cons: very loud and does not cool well. You'd think it was working well because the air that comes out is cool but it's all noise and not much cool. I'm using it to cool a living room, kitchen combo with cathedral ceilings in Florida while my central air is out and the best it can do is 90 degrees during the hot part of the afternoon. More telling is that it never seems to fill up the drain pan and this is Florida. I've emptied the tank several times and only got a small amount of water. The noise it makes is like a jet plane taking off. You sort of get used to it after a while and I could stand the noise if it cooled well but it doesn't.
Other Thoughts: I'd avoid this if you want to stay cool. It's far too noise even on the lowest fan settings to use in a bedroom when you're trying to sleep. At high it's obnoxious and it never ever shuts off unless you put the temp up to 90. I have a small 8000 btu window unit hat cools better.
