Summary: The portable AC works very well. It cools my 500 sq ft apt and has been a life saver. However like all ACs, the hotter it is outside, the hotter it is inside. If it's in the upper 90s, it only gets to about 76 degrees inside, which feels extremely cool relative to the outside.
Summary: The hose that drains the hot air keeps POPPING OUT and fills the room and house up with HEAT rather than cooling it :( :( :(. This is SUCH A WASTE OF ENERGY that I'm actually paying my electric bill to HEAT rather than COOL the place!! :( I cannot be there 24/7 to put the hose back in every time it pops out. I'd like to be able to leave this on to cool the place while I am away and come back to a cooled room.
Summary: Took a minute to ship (was expected) but installed and works GREAT. ONLY CON: The hoses it uses to pump out the hot air from the room are only meant for window use, not to be pumped into the space above the drop ceiling. I had to modify them to install them, but that's not a shortcoming of the product. This thing works great!
Fantastic Air Conditioner! GREAT Amazon Customer Service!

Summary: First off, let me just give you a bit of general advice towards purchasing a portable AC. If you are debating between a portable and a traditional in window unit, save yourself the headache and stick with the in-window unit. They don't come close to cooling your room like a traditional in-window unit does. Get a portable ONLY if you 1)Can't install a window/wall unit and/or 2) Already have central air and this is just to SUPPLEMENT the cooling.
Summary: i love this unit,although i over payed at target i wish i would have thought of amazon first. now i have an old drafty poorly insulated house and i use this unit to cool my 400 sq. ft. bedroom and it does an amazing job. ill set it at 71 and it take about half an hour to cool and it stays at whatever temp i set it at,it also dehumidifies very well.
Summary: The person who wrote about the window attachment was exactly correct. Clumsy and poorly built. The AC unit works about as you would expect. Do not have any expectations about the unit cooling an area bigger than specified. It will not.
Summary: At 14000 BTU's I would expect to cool a room of less then 400sq feet but it will not it can drop the temperature more than 2 degrees, fine if it is 27 degrees but last night it was 32 and room stayed 30. My dog over heated. SUCKS.... After paying $600 I have to go out and by another.
