Quite Surprised Actually, Expected a Worse Experience!

Summary: I wanted to take the time to write a review for this unit because of how happy we are with it. We are required to only have a portable type of air conditioner because our HOA at our weekend home doesn't allow window units.
Summary: We bought this for an apartment on the top floor of an old building with alot of south facing windows. The AC is intended to cool a large room (kitchen, living, dining room). The building has rules about window AC units (only allowing placement in certain windows), so we read the reviews and chose...
Summary: I purchased this AC unit and it worked great for the first 8 months. Cooled very well and it was quiet. One day the unit began making a clicking sound which would come and go for two days. Then it began clanking really loud. I had a ac repair man come to the house to service the unit.
Summary: Overall, I'm pretty disappointed. There was a time when the name "Friedrich," meant quality. In New York City, anyplace that wanted the best AC had a Friedrich. That was a long time ago, I guess. This is made in China and looks it. It's OK for the money but it's nothing that great.
Excerpt: I had this product for like about 2 years and a half, Is a really good AC, it cools the room really fast, a little noisy but nothing to worry about. He just breack down, just the AC, I can still use the fan, but I am buying again, it is a really good stuff.
Pros: Accurate Temperature Controls, Cools the Whole Room, Easy Window Installation
Excerpt: I bought this Unit 3 years ago, and am now throwing it out. If dragging it up 5 flights of stairs hadn't been such a pain I should of returned it immediately. Far too loud, especially considering the minimal power of cooling.
Cons: Hard To Clean Filter, Little Cooling Power, Noisey, Poor Build Quality, Vibrations And Fan Noise
Summary: We have done a great deal of research on portable AC units and we have learned a few valuable facts - that these units should have dual exhaust lines, that they should have a warranty, that they circulate truly cool or cold air and that they should not be too large.
Excerpt: We bought this to supplement the AC to a finished room over our gargage and near attic space. Our central air just never seemed to get this room cool enough. This unit does the job. It was easy to install. We only use it when the room is occupied (occasional use).
