4 out of 5 eggsPerforms adequately

Pros: The unit cools a large livingroom easily but seems to run constantly to do so. The compressor runs nonstop. Good but probably expensive. The ad says energystar but its not. Oscillating louvers great plus.

Cons: Large and in charge this thing is huge. The window kit is poorly constructed. NO hardware for the adjustments. I had to screw in place for it to be secure. I will have to purchase another window kit(not hose just window slat) or make one for the bedroom. This makes moving(portability) inconvienent but try to find an a/c anywhere right now SOLD OUT SOLD OUT. This unit at 314 $ works for me.

Other Thoughts: The only reason I bought this is because my apartment doesn't allow window units which are much more efficient and provide double the air flow. Thats the only other con is air flow could be more. the fan has to push out the exhaust air as welL thats where you loose efficiency.

3 out of 5 eggsBit the's too HOT!

Pros: Makes 2 large rooms comfortable. Can handle/maintain temperatures up to 90 then it loses ground (a few degrees).

Cons: I had to put it on its own would blow the circuit breaker in 2 different areas. I used a short extension cord and the old electric dryer circuit.

Discharge tube gets hot! Difficult to vent without sash windows.

Other Thoughts: Does the job. I did buy another Soleus 8K BTU for use in bedroom and popup camper!

Good Deals @ NewEgg!

3 out of 5 eggsGreat but Damanding

Pros: Cools my 1,350 square foot office very well despite poor insulation. It has been around 90 degrees (32C) outside but this unit keeps the inside temperature down around 74 (23C).

Cons: Humidity evaporator is not a reason to purchase this product. I have to empty the humidity tank every 2-3 hours. The pipe for emptying the humidity tank is very close to the ground. With a carpet the pipe is actually on the carpet, so I have to lift the enitre unit to get a cookie sheet under the nozzle. At ~80 pounds (36kg) this is no easy task, and usually results in spillage.

Whenever the humidity trap is full the unit beeps loudly 8 times and stops functioning, making running this unit overnight a bad idea as it can wake you up.

The included instruction manual describes functions and buttons that are not actually part of this product and can be very confusing. Most of the indicators on the remote are not documented so using the unit is trial and error.

Other Thoughts: The venting hose that goes out the window has a minimum length of about 2 feet (61cm) so the unit ends up a bit in the middle of everything but that's not nearly as frustrating as the cons mentioned above.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes the job!

Pros: Helps with this 90+ heat we've been having for weeks!
Fairly quiet, haven't had to drain it in this high humidity.
I don't have the on/off cycling that someone was reporting about.

Cons: It's rated at 15 Amps but it is very picky about power and blows breakers. I had to use an extension cord and give it its own 20A circuit.

1 out of 5 eggsBad luck or Bad product?

Pros: It turns on.

Cons: The compressor or whatever you call it, turns on and off no matter what you do. I suppose that's how the unit saves energy, but I would like the option to leave it on all the time.

Other Thoughts: I hope I can return this! I don't want to see this item as part of a mystery combo deal that can't returned for a refunded!!

5 out of 5 eggsThis Product is really COOL!

Pros: Is 12,000 BTU's and its pretty quite. I have this installed in our upstairs bedroom and it works wonders. I windows face the sun about 75% of the day so we had to purchase black out curtains but to no avail. We had a 9,000btu air conditioner that was no good and the coolant must have ran out or something because it was just an exspensive fan. This one has a nice remote and when you turn it on it electronically opens the vents and closes them when you shut the unit off to keep dust out of the inside i guess. Filter is located on top easy to acess. Easy to assemble the venting too. It works so good my mother inlaw just ordered one after we showed her ours! Ive never heard of this brand but so far so good!

Cons: Really heavy! Do NOT lift by your self. Packaging was iffy.
Remote has buttons that do not work with this unit.
like all air conditioners the compressor kicks on nd off when it reaches the set temp and tries to keep it their can get annoying.

Other Thoughts: I snagged this and another for my mother -inlaw when newegg had the 15% Promo so i got both for $322.00 each what a bargan! Thanks newegg got to my house the next day!
