Summary: Only really works when its cool at night. I live on the 17th floor of an aprtment building and it gets lots of heat and light! The fan did not dreallh cool the room down lenough to make it enjoyable to sit when lit was daylight.
Summary: Arrived in good condition. One vertical vane was dislocated, which interfered with the 'swing' feature, was out of place but I was able to pop it back in with a minimal effort. I'm using it to cool a spare bedroom that I use as an office that has an unprotected southern exposure. Even with AC on, it can be quite warm. It's about a 10'x10' loft space. This cooler does a good job of keeping it bearable. Extra credit because it will lift off the reservoir for easy cleaning.
Summary: Functional swamp cooler. This thing has a really nice fan. Even on low you can feel it across the room. Water reservoir is large and easy to clean. Timer is straightforward to use. Has a remote, but never tried it. Only con is the plastic body isn't that strong. Around the front fins and top loading tray it is noticeable.
This unit does not cool, I need to know how to put it ...

Summary: This unit does not cool, I need to know how to put it to cool or do to return it. I have followed the instructions of this unit to the letter. I've put ice, cold and since, I've missed water, but this does not cool. That I can do.
Summary: We have had this cooler for about six weeks and it has exceeded our expectations. The initial smell faded after about three hours. Our chemically sensitive family member was fine with it after that. This machine is smaller, but much more powerful, than our previous cooler (Convair Millennia). We appreciate the "swing" feature. The water port is large and easy to use without splashing. The ice feature is far better on this machine--access is easy and is amply sized.
Summary: We had to replace our old evaporative air cooler and I did a bunch of research and came up with this. What was a pleasant surprise is that my uncle had done similar research and came up with the same results so I was sold. There is an area up top that you can put ice in to help cool down the air even more and I'm sure you could probably put ice in the main tank to make all the water cold.
