Summary: I replaced two 9000 btu portable AC units with two of the Soleus 14,000 btu AC units because the smaller units just were'nt cooling enough. One of the units I cut the additional hole in the wall and am drawing the condenser air from outside instead of exhausting indoor air. This unit performs much better and the room is quite comfortable. The unit that is running on one hose is not doing well. I find the units to be very noisey.
Summary: WE LOVE OUR AIR CONDITIONER AND, MY HUSBAND HAD A QUESTION ON A FRIDAY NIGHT AND CUSTOMER SUPPORT ANSWERED RIGHT AWAY AND EXPLAINED EVERYTHING TO HIM. WE WANTED TO WAIT A BIT BEFORE WE WROTE A REVIEW TO REALLY SEE HOW WELL IT WORKS AND WE COULD NOT BE HAPPIER. WE USED IT ALL THROUGH THE HOTTEST SUMMER MONTHS. ALSO, PLEASE REMEMBER TO LET IT SIT UPRIGHT FOR 24 HOURS BEFORE USING IT SO ALL THE OIL CAN DRAIN BACK INTO THE MOTOR.
Summary: I used this unit to cool rooms above my garage that guests stay in. The unit is a little loud but does keep the area comfortable. This unit is very energy efficient as I did not see a large increase in my electric bill even with the unit being used daily for the entire month. I purchased two. The first has started leaking water and I have contacted the manufacturer to get the warranty work done to correct the problem.
Pros: Cools the Whole Room, Easily Portable, Easy Window Installation, Energy Efficient

Summary: I am on my second summer with this unit and it is working well. I use it to cool about 500 square feet and it keeps the room comfortable on the hot summer days. The temperature control is one weak point. If I set it for 73 degrees it will stop cooling when the room is warmer than 73. I think it is getting a false temperature from the units housing which stays cool while it is in air conditioning mode.
Excerpt: This air conditioner is great. It cools off most of the first floor of my house and I haven't had to empty a water bucket yet. The instructions are a little hard to read but the pictures help. The only problem that I had was the need to cut the piece of plastic to fit in the window but once that was done this is the best air conditioner in my house. The price is even the best that i could find. I will certainly buy another one of these for the rest of my house.
