Reviews and Problems with Royal Sovereign ARP-900E
Showing 1-7 of 7
Fairly Good Air Conditioner
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
