Summary: Its a standard 10k btu ac unit. Nothing special but it does what its suppose to. I like it, but i wouldn't pay full price for it.
Pros: Blows out cold air, cools my whole apartment (roughly 550 sq ft). I keep it at 72 degrees most of the time. Haven't use the dehumidifier on it yet. Nothin special, standard AC unit. for $200 on sale, i got more than i paid for i believe.
Cons: -Loud... maybe its just its size, but its significantly louder than my fans or my other window AC unit (which is a 6500btu) -Doesnt fit in my winder properly with the side accordion bracket things, wish the dimensions posted on the specs page indicated the correct width with those on it. (adds about 2.5" to each side)
I don't like to complain but this one should be passed up...

Summary: Each of us generally comments on a sample size of one unit with something like this, so some will be happy and others may not. I didn't buy this last month or last year - it's been a bit longer so my perspective has changed. I would have given this unit glowing reviews with max stars in the first few months I owned it, after that it's been all downhill. I had a problem with the thermostatic control system after the first few months, which seemed intermittent.
Summary: Had owned a Haier 5000BTU for almost 4 years, and that unit still worked well. So I bought this 10000btu to upgrade my living room this summer. The 10000BTU one did work good when I first installed it. I can handle the noise, and the AC cooled down my living room pretty fast. However, after about 2 weeks, the AC has generated water in the front and dropped to the floor. And it seemed that the unit cooled down the room slower than before.

Summary: I purchased one of these Haier 10,000btu air conditioners from a regional discount store. It was clearly marked as "Factory Refurbished" and I paid $199 plus tax. I suppose it had been returned to the factory for repair but it looks brand new. It was very well packaged and all the parts were in the box. It works well and was easy to install. All window air conditioners make noise but this one isn't especially noisy.
very good for the price don't listen to negative feedback

Summary: I bought this air conditioner because I already have an 8k one that worked great. This is the 10k one and cooled down my 400 sq ft room wonderfully. Other people make this air conditioner out to be noisy it is not any more noisy then the expensive Sharp brand we have at my other house. For the price you cannot beat this with a remote and dehumidifier feature. How many others give you a dehumid setting only? These are also very easy to set up and install.
Summary: I purchased two of these units last fall to cool an agriculture building. The temperature sensor electronic control circuit died in less than a week of use, and will not shut off. It was purchased last October, but just put into use a week ago. Zero response from Haier customer service.
