Summary: It is incredibly loud. I bought it "just" over a year ago and today it literally DIED. For several weeks it has become even louder, making terrible grinding noises. I would move it, shut it off; sometimes it stopped and sometimes it did not. Finally today it make an extremely loud noise and died.
Summary: This is a great unit! We purchased this to install in a small IT server room inside our building. Installation was fairly simple ( we plumbed condensation tube to an existing drain) and Exaust into attic. So far this unit seems to work very effiently and without problems.
Summary: I've had one for a couple of months, and am VERY disappointed with it. It puts out cool air, but definitely not cold air... Consequently, at best, it can get my bedroom down 10-15 degrees in temp, after several hours of running full blast.

Summary: Before buying this unit , I did lots and lots of research. Consensus seems to be that you need about 40% more BTUs for a portable air conditioner than for a window AC and about an additional 10% more in BTUs if room gets lots of sun.
Summary: The idea of a portable AC is great. The Sunpentown machine itself is great, it really churns out cool air. The problems with the design in my opinion, which any potential buyer needs to be aware of, are the following: 1) the exhaust pipe going from the machine to the window is not insulated, so it...
Summary: It couldn't cool an 11x12 room (high ceilings) while a window a/c with half the rated BTUs does ok. Its fan is very, very loud (although not the compressor). GREAT customer support for a ROTTEN product. Avoid it!
