Pros: Good AC for the money. Built well. Nice wireless remote feature.
Cons: I know people have complained about the annoing scraching noise started, goes on non stop. It tends to happen after the unit has been on for some time. What happens is that water collects on the bottom of the unit and the noise is actually the fan hitting the water and splashing it. To remedy this all you need to do is drill a hole in the bottom of the unit. I do not know why there is not one already there but there is not. I drilled it right under where the fan is, o...
Summary: Sharp AC units cost only a little more then your bargin basement companies & they are worth the extra money. I would say Sharp is on the same build quailty of an LG AC unit. They are sourced-out like most are today, but Sharp & LG uses better components then the likes of other brands. If you're looking for a soild bedroom/small office AC unit, then Sharp is a soild choice.
Pros: This is my 2nd review of the Sharp AF-S60RX. Sharp makes a soild mid-range air conditioner for a reasonable price. They perform pretty well overall, but they aren't of Friedrich/Panasonic build quailty. They use styrofoam as it's liner (as do many Chinese-built AC unit manufactuers do today) I still find them a tad louder then my older Panasonic AC units, but better then most on the market. Some people claim they are very quiet, but I think they are "somewhat" quiet. ...
Cons: None really to speak of. Could be a little less noisy.
Pros: cools the room and is quiet once you fix the defect
Cons: This unit has mace a scratching noise since day one. IO sent it back for repair but it was not fixed. Sharp customer service was no help. I decided to fix it myself. The cause of the scratching noise is the styrofoam shroud that surrounds the faz rubbing against the fan blades and the housing. I disassembled the unit removing the cover and used caulking to glue the two halves of the styrofoam shroud together. A few extra dabs on the side and the problem was solved. Th...
Summary: As far as small/bedroom window air conditioners go, you can't do much better. It offers 3 fan speeds when most offer only two, the vent moves up and down as well as left and right, and best of all it is very quiet by window unit standards while still cooling very effectively.
Pros: Quiet for a Window Unit, Easy to Install, Cools Effectively, 3 Fan Speeds, Auto Cool, Fairly Accurate Thermostat, No Rattles, Compressor noise is minimal.
Cons: Compared to other units in this price range, none significant.
Summary: Nothing else matters. You know why you are here. You need to sleep. I don't know if the beep is loud when I change the temperatures settings. I don't care what the manual looks like and I won't be reading it. I couldn't care less about the remote - who cares?
Pros: Quiet, Quiet, Quiet. No buzzing, no rattling, no oscillations. Just very quiet white noise. Far quieter than a window fan. I was a bit concerned by the review below that said it was a tad noisier than a Panasonic, but that wasn't the case. Not even close. More to the point, it is VERY regular and I am someone that is driven insane by sounds. I have to have silence.
Cons: Almost all other considerations don't matter. First and foremost IT IS QUIET.
Summary: literally my only complaint is that it can sometimes be too quiet. I am so used to noisy AC units that sometimes I wish this one could be a bit louder, to block out street noise. But that's kind of a ridiculous thing to complain about.
