Summary: This is an AC - not central air. It isn't silent by any means but the noise is no deal breaker. I will sleep with it just fine, and 2 of my three children just fell asleep with it running (the third is trying desperately to keep her eyes open for the rest of the movie!
Great for Cooling Rooms smaller than 250sq ft with and without windows.

Summary: My wife and I purchased this to cool our in home gym. Our gym gets to be about 95 - 102 degrees during the summer. The Portable AC went on sale and I had to take a chance. I was at first skeptical because it only had a 30 day warranty.

Summary: The HPY08XCM is fine - as long as you don't try to use it in a sleeping room. It so loud that you could not possibly sleep in the same room. We measured it at 75 db. It sounds like there is a lawn mower in your room.
Summary: This total piece of junk leaked and ruined my hardwood floor. The plug was closed tightly but the leak came from somewhere inside the unit. Buying this product will be a very big mistake. Consider another brand and pay for something with better reviews.
Summary: the room cooled to 76Degrees from 82 pretty fast.However I set it for 70 F but it is stuck at 76 after 30minutes in a 10 x12 feet room. Also the panels are somewhat short for my standard windows.
Summary: Easy to install with some homemade modifications for a casement window. Very minimal cooling effect in a less than 200 sq.ft. room. Probably should have bought more BTU - maybe 12,000, or better still installed a through the wall unit. Not worth returning it, but wouldn't buy it again.
Summary: It does a very a good job of cooling down a room. I have it in a small bedroom converted for home office use and honestly could have gotten by with a 5000 BTU unit but I don't have a window that a window air conditioner would fit, so I need a portable/ducting solution.
