Categories > Air Conditioners > Keystone > Keystone KSTAW06A 6,000 Cooling Capacity (BTU) Window Air Conditioner

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 Chinese brand
Pros: Small, light and quiet. Two years warranty.
Cons: Base made of easy strip out plastic. Unbelievable low chassis quality; it's amazing that it works. Nothing fits properly and easy breaks. Cooling unit is made probably by somebody else. Warranty is only here to bolster price and credibility. Typical one, maybe two years use Chinese product.
Other Thoughts: Arrived all bend up with many mounting screws ripped off. It was quiet so I tried to fix it, but low overall quality made me return it.

Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2 Worked fine for one summer
Pros: Fan blows fast.
Cons: Pretty much only functioned as a fan after 1st summer
Never really blew air that was "cold" best suited for a very very small room. (I have another 5000BTU that makes my room feel like a freezer) This was for my kids room, all it did was make the room temperature tolerable.

Categories > Air Conditioners > Haier America Trading > Haier HPRB08XCM 8,000 Cooling Capacity (BTU) Portable Air Conditioner

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 A Great Update to an Already Solid Model
Pros: Very High Efficiency model, New quieter Speed, No draining needed, Eco-Friendly refrigerant
Cons: Single-hose unit (will add to time to cool down), Vents only adjust one direction.
Other Thoughts: A little insight on this model: this model is the replacement for the outgoing 7,000 BTU CPRB07XC7. That unit had the same shell/case, but offered only two speeds, consumed 800w, had an Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) of only 8.75, and used R-22 (which has been phased out because of its tendency to damage the ozone layer). It was sold under the "Commercial Cool" brand name.

Fast forward a few years and we have the current model HPRB08XCM. Although they look almost identical, Haier made major improvements under the shell. The current model uses only 700 watts, giving it an EER of 11.4, rivaling the efficiency of some Energy Star window units. In addition to being very energy efficient, the current model also offers 3 speeds (an additional slower speed to reduce noise at night. The previous two speeds were the medium and high settings.) and also uses environmentally-friendly R-410 instead of the old R-22.

Because of these updates, you'll notice that some of the limitations of previous portable air conditioners won't apply here. This is a relatively quiet (on low) high-efficiency model that pulls less electricity than some 8,000 BTU window units. Having said that, it is still a single-hose unit, SO IT WILL TAKE LONGER to cool down a room than a window unit. However, IT WILL do it as long as you are using it for a room of the rated size.

My recommendation is to get the room to the temperature you want at night and use the unit to MAINTAIN that temperature through the day. Portables are great when used that way.

I highly recommend this unit; it's a great upgrade to the previous 7,000 BTU unit (which won awards because of its innovative looks and performance when it was initially released years ago).

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Life Saver
Pros: Received just in time after a long move over several states, the weather was much warmer than expected and no air in the house. We looked all over and AC's were sold out, came to Newegg, found what we wanted and ordered 2. Easy to install and works great!
Cons: None
Other Thoughts: May purchase a third one

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Follow up on Haier 12,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner 2014 review update! for 2016
Pros: the air Conditioner has a good quality rebuild!!!
Run time for the 3-years I had it is estimated at 219,060 hours ( 95% time Accuracy! )
AC Compressor still works!
Cons: You need to Carefully take the outer Casing shell off to clean the Condenser core ( there is no Dust filter to keep it clean )
It is Difficult to Clean the Condenser core ( the coolant tubes are in the way )
After 3-Years my Condenser Cooling fan stop working ( Secondary Critical Component )
Other Thoughts: I still give it a 5 star/egg because it is still in repairable condition in my opinion the only time I deem it unrepairable is when the compressor & Coolant system is Broken ( hard for an Average person to fix on their own & too Expensive to have repaired professionally )

Categories > Air Conditioners > LG Electronics > LG LW1216ER 12,000 Cooling Capacity (BTU) Window Air Conditioner

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Good price performance
Pros: I needed it to replace a Friedrich 12000 BTU 18 years old, Almost 1/3 of the other brand price , and works fabulous, dB at 34 average , just TV noise is dB 38 av. both dB 38 av.
Cons: No one significant, until now.
Other Thoughts: Easy to install, just unpack install,maybe adjust the size of the box , is smaller than the original Friedrich original, 1 1/2 inches in every side and 1/2 in height, using insulating foam sealant you fix yourself, like me first time I ever did that, and save $80 installation.

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Not a bad little unit.
Pros: Easy to set up.
Takes up very little space.
Keeps the room comfortable on hot days (read other)
Cons: Inefficient versus a window mounted AC unit or an external exchange portable unit.
Doesn't provide enough foam to seal the window.
Other Thoughts: If you need a portable AC unit but can't afford the cost of many others, this is a great option. While it is rather inefficient (which I knew going into the purchase), if used correctly you can achieve decent results. The best way to use this is to run the unit in the room BEFORE the room gets hot, the unit does a good job at maintaining the room temp but once the room gets hot and it's hot outside, the unit is going to struggle to bring the room temp down. People in other reviews have recommended getting a dual hose (external exchange) unit as they are more efficient, but if anyone looking at this is like me, they don't have $500 for an AC unit. A few people also complained about the unit not outputting cold air, which could be caused by a feature that threw me off. When this unit drops about 2 degrees below the set point, it doesn't turn completely off, it only shuts the compressor off and continues to run the fan and if the unit is turned on when the room is at or below the set point the compressor won't come on, only the fan. Once the temp goes 1 degree above set point, the compressor will kick in. This is part of normal operation, though the manual doesn't seem to state that anywhere, however do read the instructions as many of the complaints in the reviews stem from users not reading the operations manual thoroughly and not getting the expected result.
