Haier CPRB08XCK-LW 8,000 Cooling Capacity (BTU) Portable Air Conditioner
  • Cooling / Dehumidifying Functions
  • 8,000 Cooling Capacity (BTU)

5 out of 5 eggs Decent performance, very portable 10/24/2012

This review is from: Haier CPRB08XCK-LW 8,000 Cooling Capacity (BTU) Portable Air Conditioner

Pros:

- Lightweight (under 60 pounds, very light for a portable a/c in this class).
- Good performance, kept my 200 sq foot room 20 degrees lower than outside temperatures during hot summer months.
- Easy to maintain
- Bargain price
- Small and nice looking (unlike most portable a/cs, which are bulky and ugly IMO)

Cons:

- When outdoor temperature rose above 100, it reached over 80 degrees in my room.
- Only one hose (exhaust.) No air intake hose, so air is sucked out of the room to cool the compressor, which in turn sucks in hot air from outside via cracks in the front door, etc.

Other Thoughts:

This a/c is just enough for the moderate desert conditions I live in (which usually stays in the upper 90's during summer months). I leave this thing running 24/7, and my electric bills aren't too shocking. I used a dual-hose 10,000 BTU portable a/c before this one, which definitely cooled more effectively.
