Decent unit - arrived DOA - blame UPS 12/17/2013
This review is from: Tripp Lite SRCOOL12K 120V, Self-Contained Portable Air Conditioning Unit
Fairly rugged - easily hackable thermistor.
No included remote sensor - same issue as my previous review.
Had good results with previous unit, so I ordered another of these.
Unfortunately, this one arrived DOA.
No air output from exhaust.
Looked down and I can see where the squirrel cage fan looks like it's cocked.
I also see what looks like a small plastic part below it that appears to have broken free.
Newegg takes too long to process an RMA, and has no mechanism to expedite, so I called Tripplite and arranged an overnight replacement billed to our Fedex account.
This is an adequate product.
The 'spot cooling' feature is non existent, unless one is counting the hose as a 'feature.'
Real spot cooling still requires an add on sensing and control unit.
That accessory is just now hitting the reseller chain, and increases the unit cost by about 50%. If I needed that, I'd probably spend up and get a properly designed industrial unit.
This is a home portable a/c with a hose adapter.
