Summary: I've had this unit for 14 mos. now and although this a/c has many features I like, it's compressor goes into "thermal shutdown" rather quickly on very hot days... When this occurs it reverts to nothing more than a fan for a period of up to an hour (usually 10 to 40 mins) until its inner workings cool back down to its "normal" operating range... On very hot days this happens so frequently that it becomes virtuaaly useless for cooling.
Had this unit 8 years, no problems, just enjoyment
30 September 2012
Summary: Bought this unit over 8 years ago, has two hoses that pull outside air in and blows Hot out the window, cooling the home just like the Central air unit,we bought it for power outages,Hurracanes, the last hurracane we had it ran off our Genrator for 3 weeks stright in our condo, or condo is 1,000 sq feet living space and kept house at 74 degs removed mosture as we ran it in our tub and hoses out window, has super blowing cap.
Summary: Pros: -It arrived in great packaging. I was actually impressed with this aspect of it. -Amazon's great customer service let me return the defective unit free of charge. They paid for shipping and no restocking fee. Cons: -Short version: Dead on arrival. -Product was greasy to touch and had black smudges all over it (I saw another review which stated this too). Even after wiping it down, it was still greasy... -The product was leaking oil all over the place.
Summary: Price is good, Delivery was good, After 2 weeks of use--the unit is running very good so-far. The best part about the unit is---it's the only model/company that has an AC that will turn itself back on after a power-outage!! Here in Los Angeles, we have many power outages every summer. I looked high and low and the SPT is the only unit offering this feature. Plus***the sales dept./salesman, Mr.
Summary: The only reason I gave this one star is that there isn't an option for zero (0) stars. I bought two of these and neither one worked out of the box. Amazon did give me a refund quickly, but I was very disappointed that the product sounded so good and qas so bad. Do not buy.
Summary: We ordered this AC unit through Amazon and when it arrived, we did take a look at it and turned it on briefly to make sure it worked, but did not need to use it right away because where we live in the northwest summers are unpredictable, and it was not hot enough to use it. We had originally decided to purchase this because we do get heat waves sometimes, and there are some very hot days in the summer which are not pleasant without AC, and it is standard for most homes...
Summary: In April 2011, I purchased a Sunpentown (SPT) air conditioner for $450. I ended up not using it last summer and stored it, unopened in its box, until a month ago. Right out of the box, it didn't work. After trading emails with a customer service representative James who after 3 rounds of email told me that it doesn't matter that the product was defective out of the box.
Summary: This air conditioner is amazing. This past summer was so hot and humid that we decided to splurge and get an air conditioner unit. I had grown up with "central air" and was not so sure this would do the trick. However, it proved to be awesome! Overnight, it took the humidity out of our air, and by the next day the house was so much more pleasant. Brought lots of relief to our family during the hot summer.
Summary: Received speedily, easy install, very quiet operation. In spite of high humidity, haven't had to empty the condensate pan yet. It has effectively cooled and dehumidified a 10x20 space for a week now. We are very pleased with it.
