Does not work at all without hoses

maccool61, Ebay
6 October 2011
  • Summary: Have no idea how this Air Conditioner works since it came without any hose or attachments for hoses. The Portables are worthless without the hose connectors and hoses to go out the window. The other issue is the company does not make this model anymore nor the hoses for it. Which makes me want to throw it away now, but I have faith I will find something to make it useful at best.

Fairly Good Air Conditioner

HappyGirl15215, Amazon
7 April 2010
  • Summary: Pros: Fairly good cooling, no service problems, easily portable Cons: could cool better, especially in really hot weather, need to use a larger tray to catch water. I lived in an upstairs apartment for seven years. When temps were in low 80's it would cool a 11' x 17' room + small kitchen/dining area ok. Much higher outside and the lowest it would go was about 80 degrees, attribute that partially to this area being much larger than the a/c is created to cool.

A life saver

Mario Chiaramonte, Amazon
25 March 2010
  • Summary: We've been using the A/C for about 3 years, now. It gets incredibly hot in our room, during the summers, and while I won't claim that this actually cools it a whole lot, it does make a difference and since I always have it pointed on the bed, or the computer (depending on where I'm at!), it really makes the heat manageable. Our current room is the coolest in the house, though, and lowering the temperature by 3 or 4 degrees is about all it takes to make a big difference.

don't buy this air conditioner

Helga, Amazon
13 September 2009
  • Summary: It does cool ok (not the greatest) but takes a lot of energy. The vent hose gets extremly warm. The water drips into its tank and the sound of the dripping is like a faucet dripping, very annoying. Tank has to be emptied every hour if you don't want to hear the dripping.

Can not go wrong with it....

Alf, Amazon
8 September 2009
  • Summary: For those who say the hose heats up....guess what, LOL! Tape it with heat tape from Home Depot. That hose OF COURSE is going to be hot and is hot on any model you will ever buy. We bought ours 3 years ago and actually we have two...both are fine, never give us any problems. No they are not "wonder units" that will cool your entire house. They do cool a room though. And they don't have to be emptied except once a day for us.

WORKS OK IN TEXAS

PreacherThug, Amazon
7 August 2009
  • Summary: It cools my bedroom in the most vile, wretched, desert-like cesspool of morons and filth called Texas. I put the machine on blocks allowing a larger water container. I simply put a washcloth where the water drips to stop the drip torture. The hose is warm, but hardly psychotically hot like other reviews seem to indicate. I have no idea if the machine has freon that needs to be re-supplied. Does anyone know? The machine is four years old and it runs almost all the time.

This product is a joke

Butterfly Lu, Amazon
10 May 2009
  • Summary: I bought RS ARP-900E Portable Air Conditioner - 9000 BTU from Fry's yesterday. It is over $400. Today I am going to return it. Of course, it only takes a few minutes to set up and very easy for anyone to operate it. We set it up and tried for a few hours, and then we feel extremely disappointed. If you live in the South and your room's temperature reaches 90 F and you wish to use a portable air conditioner to cool the room down, good luck.

Does a great job

Todd Mathers, Amazon
14 April 2009
  • Summary: Bought this and works well down where I'm from in Georgia. It gets pretty hot here and this easily cooled my room and the bathroom. It's pricey but does seem to do a good job.
