Summary: Was originally going to purchase a portable one from another brand but so glad I decided on this one. It's easy to install and put together, although the box is quite heavy when it was delivered. Once out of the box, everything's fine. It works like wow! Refreshing and cool air. Would recommend this. Happy with the product.
Summary: conditions and the temperature is above 100 degrees. I contacted Sharp immediately after purchase and was given a bogus Sharp repair center address, and eventually was given an address to take it. They had it for two months before I faxed them to ask what was going on, and they said they could not hear the noise.
Pros: It does cool a small room
Cons: The unit makes a scratching noise anytime that it has to work in humid
Cons: Does not drain water. The water will inevitably pool in the back and when the fan hits it you get the "scratching" noise. This unit should be recalled for this design "flaw". No wonder it's listed as discontinued now.
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...
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.
Summary: Bought to cool a 12 x 24 foot room and does a good job. Wouldn't use for a larger space unless you don't mind waiting for the cool down. Much quieter than some other units I have. Remote control is a plus since it's used in a bedroom.
Summary: We bought this to replace two horrible brand new Fridgidare that did not cool. the specs looked differenct online. When we got it out of the box it was the EXACT same a/c as the Fridgidaire. We didnt even put it in after buying 2 of the Fridgidaires and neither could cool our 180 sq. ft. room. The website specs were very misleading, but the insides of this a/c were identical, and there was no way wer were going to go through all this again for a third time.
Summary: The entire Sharp A/C lineup is soild choice. The Sharp "AFS" series is their entry level. The "AFQ" line-up is their more expensive units. This is my 3rd AFS60RX A/C unit. Two are 4+ yeras old & working perfectly & I just purchased another. The A/C is quiet for the most part, but when the compessor comes on it will make some noise. It's pretty lightweight @ 41.6 lbs. That's a good thing when you need to pull it from the window every season up here in New England.
Pros: Great Features, Soild Remote, Lightweight & Good Name
