This review is from: Frigidaire FRA106BU1 10,000 Cooling Capacity (BTU) Window Air Conditioner
Pros: Stevie Nicks singing "Stand Back" ~~ That is what you will find yourself singing when you turn this thing on. It feels like it has a jet engine inside because this thing BLOWS HARD !! I took the temperature of the air coming out the front and was astonished to see a reading of 34 [F] degrees. Usually an AC will out anywhere from 36 - 38 degrees, but 34 ~~ I was shocked.
The first day I got it the temperature outside was 97. I live on the second floor of a two story house and there are no trees providing shade anywhere ... After a few hours of having this thing on my neighbor came in and proclaimed "it's cold in here!" I hadn't noticed as I had put on a sweatshirt earlier and didn't even realized it...

This review is from: Frigidaire FRA086AT7 8,000 Cooling Capacity (BTU) Window Air Conditioner
Pros: I use this AC in a room 12' x 15' and is Cools magnificently. Some reviewers complain when an AC isn't quiet and I can't quite understand what they expect. This air-conditioner is by no means quiet but it blows 36 [F] degree air like the dickens. Yes 36 degrees, I took the temperature of the air coming out if it and it makes the room COLD. I have never heard a silent Air-conditioner other than a Central Air unit or the window unit I had that died, which was sadly Very quiet.
Other Thoughts: If you're hot ~~ BUY it!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's very cute
Cons: Upon receiving this mini there was only one review to go by and at $214 I figured I could not go wrong. While I was not entirely convinced the computer would last as long as my home built SLI rig, nor as long as my 3 year old HP which cost $1200 or as long as my Dell which was given to me second hand 11yrs ago, I was not prepared for it to give out within 3-4 minutes of turning it on for the first time.
I bought this little gem as a gift for my roommate and being that his birthday is not for another 3 weeks I figured I would start setting it up in my spare time, installing various software and giving it a 'run for it's money'. Upon entering a password that I know he uses I clicked next and while I was entering his email address the screen began to do what I will call "spaghettify': as little horizontal lines, not unlike angel hair pasta, began to run across the screen starting off somewhat scattered and dim and intensifying into a solid white. The same thing happened on 3 reboots.
Other Thoughts: I requested and was given an RMA but I am now wondering if I should just call back and request the return that was offered by the very nice rep. on the phone.....
If I do get another one and it actually works beyond the 3 minute mark I will report back
