Buyer Beware

Steven H., Newegg
6 December 2013
  • Summary: by something else
  • Pros: worked great for 1 year... provided good heating and cooling in an Indiana climate
  • Cons: Started to function less effectively when the 1 year warranty expired. After a little over 2 years ownership, the unit has finally died. It does not heat, cool or dehumidify anymore.

It's the Bomb!

Gary B., Newegg
8 May 2013
  • Summary: I placed my unit on a wheeled platform with a 5 gallon bucket on a lower shelf under the unit and let the condensation run into the bucket. On humid days it needs to be emptied daily, but a small price for staying cool. It heats better than it cools, but it does an adequate job at both.
  • Pros: It's a heater in the winter and an air conditioner in the summer. Solidly built Not overly noisy
  • Cons: No way it will "auto dispose" of the water that condenses during air conditioning cycle.

Great for Heating and Cooling

Gary B., Newegg
17 March 2013
  • Summary: I placed this unit on a rolling table with a 20 litre pail on a shelf below and the thing runs like clockwork. The pail is definitely necessary as the dehumidification process that occurs during cooling creates a lot of water.
  • Pros: Portability
  • Cons: Loud

Use for Heating only

Cat c., Newegg
30 November 2012
  • Summary: I keep one upstairs near the stairs (easier to drain) and one downstairs. I have a 2-story 3 bedroom home in nortwest Maryland built in 1923. It is not insulated and this is by far the cheapest method of heating. These things are very efficient. The air conditioning is pretty lame, but the heat is a huge money saver. I have tried all kinds of heat and this thing is genius!
  • Pros: I bought this baby for heating purposes three years ago and it is still going strong. My electric bill using heat was $500+ / MTH to heat an old house. If I ran oil it was $550 / MTH. I can heat the whole house using two of these units at about $235 / MTH (my higest electric bill in past three years). It has more than paid for itself. My November bill was $140, October was $120, December will be about $180, January will be $225, same in February, and then back down. B...
  • Cons: When tank fills, you will need to drain water. Some people use the drip pan and come home to wet floors, I for one just keep it plugged until it tells me it is full and then drain. I have never had a wet floor doing this. It is large, heavy, and asthetically bulky and ugly, but I didn't buy it for the looks. If you wan't to save money on heating your home this baby does the trick. I have cheaper electric bills than anyone around me by about $300 / MTH. Who cares if it...

Works great ....for 1 yr

DAVID B., Newegg
3 June 2012
  • Pros: - Good cooling and heating ability - kept a 350sf room cool - timer and thermostat to help moderate temp
  • Cons: - doesn't last long. I got one good cooling season and one heating season out of it. An incredibly loud noise from the motor came about just after warranty expired. VERY DISAPPOINTED. $400 for 13 months is TOO EXPENSIVE. I now need another AC unit and I won't be buying this brand again - ever.

Look Elsewhere! Cheap and Built Accordingly!

groshtc0323, Ebay
5 December 2011
  • Summary: Watch Out! You definitely get what you pay for. This unit was "acting up" right out of the box. The display started to malfunction and the buttons did not correspond with their respective functions. After unplugging the unit for a couple hours it appears that it was reset and began functioning normally again.

waste of time

Anonymous, Newegg
24 August 2011
  • Summary: The front panel was jammed on during assembly. Also they photo shopped the box to remove the screw holes, I thought that was a bit dishonest. The remote was the selling point of the unit as It was bought for a bed ridden veteran.
  • Pros: Blows cold air. and hot air
  • Cons: The unit is stuck in Celsius. The original remote didn't work. The remote is the only way to change to Fahrenheit. Chris from tech support seemed helpful through our email exchange but in the end it proved fruitless after TWO more remotes were sent to me. Each of them different from the previous remote. Honestly I think they are out of remotes and just don't want to admit it.

Humidity issues

Jesse S., Newegg
13 August 2011
  • Summary: Great product otherwise. Would have given a 4.5 if I could have.
  • Pros: great 4 in 1, great cooling, great price, great exhaust system that doesn't bleed too much.
  • Cons: After an hour of AC use in 24 celsius cooling down to 19, tray is overflowing. It is quite a nuissance but still... Also not convinced bout the 12 500. Seems a little much for its actual cooling capability.
