LG LW1012ER 10,000 Cooling Capacity (BTU) Window Air Conditioner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs GOOD A/C & Energy Efficient 06/19/2014

This review is from: LG LW1012ER 10,000 Cooling Capacity (BTU) Window Air Conditioner

Pros: Background- General Contractor, and familiar with a/c equipment, Wasn't happy with a Sears 13kbtu heat/air-condition unit energy efficiency cooling my cabin. Bought TWO of these LG window units, having 10,000 btu x two, running 20k btu for the two units and cut my electric bill by 50%. The EER on this unit is higher than many of the available 'Wall Type' A/C units- DOES make a difference. One unit in bedroom, unit isn't 'Quiet'; however, it runs quieter than most units I've heard over the years AND since it has the Energy Efficient mode in addition to 'Cool', the unit blower does not run ALL THE TIME while a/c is turned on which is a feature the Sears unit does NOT have. Kept Sears in wall unit for only heating. Filters easy to clean.

Unit is about the same as any window unit, insofar as difficulty to install. Only add from me was duct taping with aluminum tape over the side panels and later going to put styrofoam inside to prevent heat loss.

Note - Instructions, unit designed to run with rubber drain plug installed, using condensation inside a/c as part of it's cooling function.

Remote is handier than I thought to adjust unit, particularly the one in the bedroom.

Cons: Some day they will find a way to have a better installation kit. They should have a higher EER. Law doesn't require it for wall units like they do the ducted a/c units. Some companies like LG at least have something partway decent. Not really a CON as the unit is as described.

5 out of 5 eggs FIVE STAR SPEAKERS despite poor packaging 10/11/2013

This review is from: MartinLogan MLT-2 5.1 CH Premium Home Theater Speaker System Black System

Pros: Owned this system for more than two (2) years. Refer to earlier four star reviews on EGG from back in 2011 when purchased with Yamaha RX-V867 AV receiver (also from EGG). Installation was carefully done from over 45-years of building/installing stereo equipment. Soldering wire ends works- but BUY BANANA PLUGS. Packaging is deplorable and I was fortunate the box as damaged as it was,, did not damage the speakers and really surprised the Subwoofer was intact. As owner of larger, high end B&O speakers and equipment- can tell you that you shouldn't kid yourself into believing ANY small size speaker will outperform a quality speaker with a larger form factor. However, these speakers are OUTSTANDING for the QUALITY of sound.. and for VALUE which is PERFORMANCE for the COST paid to own. You cannot buy better speakers without paying close way over $500++. QUICK TEST: Pick up the ML speakers.. then pick up Klipsch , Bose, or any other quality small speakers.. Notice the difference in weight. Featherweight speakers have small light magnets, etc, Have never seen a 3+# speaker that didn't outperform a 1# speaker- May not be scientific, but it's true. These speakers are really on sale on the EGG,, have wanted another subwoofer.. this unit or one of this quality separately will cost you at least $400-500 .. check the price buying this sub from ML separately! Pair is going in MIata,, another pair in Bedroom, and SUB in main room added to the other system.

Cons: Terrible, DEPLORABLE packaging.. light weight box for shipping without even having a decent cushioning in proper packaging material is a recipe for disaster for customers. Don't really believe shipping issues should be in a REVIEW for the product; however, when product packaging is so bad that it becomes unlikely for the customer to RECEIVE an undamaged product.. it needs to be mentioned and factored in. SURE am going to try to get extra shipping box to put the ML speaker box in- may get lucky... I don't know if ML is having problems with a batch of their SUBS.. hope not but trust ML and EGG to resolve issues. I originally bought the ML-2 system without listening due to knowing Martin Logan from years of owning high end sound systems. Built a pair of Altec Lansing Voice of Theater speakers in first year of college (finished- 110 hours of work.. speakers with Marantz amp was WOW .. but another story)

Other Thoughts: It's in the other reviews, worth mentioning again. I used ML Motion-4 speakers (from the EGG- see review) as primary FRONT R&L speakers, the ML-2 system satellite speaker pair is used as a Mid-room speakers (opposite side of room from where people sit to watch movie on the Sony 46" hd screen or listen to the tunes. The other pair are rear channel speakers, completing the 7.1 system which will soon be a 7.2 with the second sub.

5 out of 5 eggs BUY- You will NOT be disappointed 06/08/2013

This review is from: MartinLogan MLT-2 5.1 CH Premium Home Theater Speaker System Black System

Pros: This Martin Logan MLT-2 system IS a $1000 system that in today's market would be a good buy at $500, FOR this $200 price and free shipping DO NOT WAIT JUMP ON THE DEAL BEFORE IT'S GONE. I HAVE reviewed after purchase with the EGG (paid more) Originally gave 4-Eggs. Added the fifth EGG for going on two years without a hitch. Wanted a new REVIEW to be up front for anyone who's considering this system. This speaker system has Very Good Sound for such a small size footprint. VALUE is EXCELLENT. There is NO such thing as a FREE LUNCH. You get what you pay for. I WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN DISPLEASED PAYING $500+ FOR THIS SYSTEM for the sound these put out. Currently use ML Motion 4 speakers for main FRONT speakers with these satellites for mid-room and rear speakers.. Price? You cannot buy a Subwoofer of this quality sound for what the EGG is selling the system for. Pick these speakers up. Compare weight with other speakers which is a good non tech way of comparing speakers.

Cons: Packaging could be better. If possible to request the system to be boxed in another box.. DO IT. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A BOOM BOOM HIP HOP SOUND. LIKELY WORK BUT IT WOULD BE A WASTE. Forget any small speakers though these may work despite size.

Other Thoughts: Was building speakers in the '60's including MAC tube amplifiers. I currently own B &O Penta speaker with B&O 5500 system. In past, have owned Altec Lansing Voice of Theater speakers, Pioneer Elite System with Laser disc player, etc. I KNOW WHAT REALLY GOOD SOUND IS LIKE. You cannot put GREAT sound in small packages like these speaker without losing something in a trade off. The unique ML Voice coil goes a long way to mitigating the normal 'tinny' sound tendency for small speakers.
