This review is from: EdgeStar Extreme Cool 14,000 BTU Dual Hose Portable Air Conditioner & Heater - Black
Pros: This unit doesn't work miracles, but it does get the job done.
It's 102F outside right now according to google, and my top floor, 550 sf apartment is still hovering around 79F. I use it in conjunction with a smaller 5600 BTU unit during nasty heat waves.
Other positives are the build quality and price point, setup was very easy.
Cons: Its optimal in spaces that aren't partitioned. I imagine this unit could keep a 500 sf room very cool if it was only used in that room. It also has a hard time working if the ambient gets above 90, so the unit needs to run almost continuously if you live in say, Phoenix or during heat waves.
Other Thoughts: All in all it's a decent unit. I still think a through-window is a better bet but if like me you live in a building with a challenging electrical layout it does provide the flexibility to setup anywhere within about 6-7 feet of an outlet. The air tubes can also be stretched to about 4' with no loss in efficiency. As a portable unit setup was also extremely easy. The only tool you need is a philips head screwdriver and you're set. Also a hacksaw that can cut PVC is advisable if you want to cut down the window extensions.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It works and works well.
Cons: Installation can be confusing. You really have to jam the drive hard into the SATA receptors which I found problematic until I removed the SATA connectors with a philips head, slotted them into the drive "manually" and then put my SSD & connector "assembly" back into the plastic case and secured the connectors back down with screws. Once the SSD is in though, the case works great and keeps the drive secure.
Other Thoughts: The ikea style instructions did not help much.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good ram for the most part, fast & reliable as DDR3 should be BUT...
Cons: I had to RMA this item when I tried to upgrade my ram. My first batch of 3 worked great, second batch had a bad stick that caused windows to BSOD constantly and upon isolating the bad sticks my MOBO couldn't boot.
Other Thoughts: Luck of the draw I suppose, but this is the first bad stick of RAM I've ever encountered.READ FULL REVIEW
