Summary: Think Frigidaire will send a technician over to repair this unit, which purchased new? Appears to be defective as it simply isn't cold.
Cons: This unit is not cold at all. On a 85F day, leaving this on Cool (not Energy Saving mode) with fan on High speed, and the temperature drops to.... 82F. That, and this unit, as others have mentioned, is EXTREMELY loud.
Great item, but now it makes a loud rattling noise

Summary: Customer Service seems to be located somewhere where English is not their primary language. This language barrier makes it difficult to understand what they are saying.
Pros: Like the other reviewers have stated, this little unit really blows out the air and is somewhat loud. The little remote works well also.
Cons: 05/25/2010 Called for warranty repair to fix the noise. Shana said that they would replace the unit and I would get a call back1-3 days. 06/08/2010 Called again. Arnold said that Shana did not process the order correctly and that he would fix the problem. He also said I would get a call in 1-3 da...
Pros: Ordered Thursday AM. delivered Monday AM. $185 total. Lightweight, installed easily, plugs in and runs. Replacing 20yo 5000BTU unit which cost me $160. Because the Frigidaire is Energy Star, my utility co. is giving me a $50 rebate. Hence, my cost is $135, cheaper, and more efficient than the ori...
Cons: Condenser fins were bent in the back of the unit. They should be better protected. The fan noise is no more than I experienced from other units.
Summary: Technically I should be using a unit that is 10,000 BTU or higher. Just the living room area where it is mounted is about 400 square feet and the diningroom/kitchen, which are completely open areas (no doorway), are probably another 250-300 square feet at least.
Pros: Shipping... I know shipping has little relevance where the product rating is concerned, but I have to mention this. The item is 50+ lbs, shipping only cost $20 and it arrived in less than 12 hours. That was completely unexpected as shipping time allows for 2-3 business days. On with the product p...
Cons: They make a few assumptions about the type of window you will be mounting in. For people with wooden window sashes/frames/sills and no storm window, everything is perfect. I can not place a screw through the left and right accordion sleeves into the window sash because my windows frames are metal...
Summary: People should'nt expect this to act like a $1,000 unit when a person only has to pay $199.99(That includes tax and shipping). And NO, IT DOES NOT SOUND LIKE A JET ENGINE. I'm very happy with this purchase. It's a Bulk item so you can refuse it when delivered if the box seems to be damaged.
Pros: Very nice unit, You want find it anywhere cheaper considering the shipping. The unit blows very cold and it was not damaged during shipping. This unit is cooling 367.5 square ft in a mobile home with metal roof and metal siding and does it very well(Rated for 350 square ft). The features are very...
Summary: Good brand, good unit, good price=great deal. New Eggs shipping is fast!!! Thank you.
Pros: I did Heat A/C work for many years. Price was better than I could buy at the local wholesale supply house. It blows cold and cools off a finished attic bedroom. It is a bit loud. When set to med speed, it's ok. Set to power saving, the fan shuts off after the stat. is satisfied, or else it never ...
Cons: Keep a set of triple A batteries around, the remote uses them up when using remote sensor. A bit loud on high speed.
Summary: Check check double check when they arrive at your door and send back *ANY* that have any damage whatsoever to the outside of the package. The packing on these units is a bit thin and the materials used in construction don't lend themselves to taking a beating very well.
Pros: Cold. Does the livingroom, kitchen and dinette with ease. Can set for a temp and then tell it to use the sensor located in the remote instead of the one b uilt into the unit. Very handy when cooking.
Cons: You *do have to turn the volume on the TV up about ten clicks when it kicks on, (Its located next to the TV, only window near an outlet). But, It blows. No really, loud but tolerable for me.
