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: the air conditioner works great, i bought mostly for the heat pump , i like that it works better then the little space and cost use to run , the only thing i dislike is that is kinda loud but all you to do to fix that is turn up the tv, and i would tell someone to purchase this product because it does a great job
Summary: After looking at numerous options I selected this unit to provide cooling for a 300 square foot Florida room which runs around 95 degrees during summer afternoons. After four years of reliable service, this unit is still capable of lowering room temperature at least 10 deg on its' own and more with the help of a ceiling fan and air from the house. The only insulation on this room is in the ceiling.

Summary: Very powerful and cools well. Pretty loud when you first turn it on (and I love white noise) so I'd recommend turning it on before you're ready for bed so it will be at the lower (and quieter) fan setting (if on auto) once room is cooler. I love the timer and remote control options. Easy to set up.
Summary: great a/c quiet! good value included free shipping . if compressor or whatever kicks on you dont notice ,built well. quick,easy setup easy controls inc. remote. produces some water ,but very little ,and easy to drain. you will be pleased .when the season is done just roll into nearby closet.
Summary: My experience with a Supentown Portable AC Unit is very similar to what 'Thorion (Rome, NY)' reported. I purchased a WA-1200E in June 2006 and it died last week (end of June 2007). This unit was lightly used (less than 10 hours per week during warm months only) . I contacted their support staff and, although they were prompt to reply, they indicated that the unit was out of warranty and that nothing was covered.
Summary: I was shocked at how useless this thing was. I would turn this unit on immediately when I come home from work. The initial reading on the unit would say something like 95% (house was all closed up). The unit could not even drop the room temperature below 90%. After about 1hr the exhaust hose would radiate so much heat into the room that the unit made a better heater than air conditioner. The vents blow upwards as if to cool the ceiling. You cannot adjust them vertically.
Summary: I bought my Sunpentown in May of 2005. When it arrived the LED display was broken and the 12,000 BTU air conditioner was not capable of cooling my 150 square foot room. I called Sunpentown and explained the situation. They said that as long as the output temperature was 20% cooler than the input temperature the unit was considered to be functioning properly. Do the math.
Summary: I bought this product in the summer of 07. I live in a room over the garage that gets the brunt of the sun and therefor reaches 78-80 degrees even with the AC on. At first the unit after running for a couple hours would drop the temp to 72 on a summer day but no lower. The first spring/summer I did not have to change the water at all. The next spring/summer it could only drop the temp down to 73-74 and I had to change the water 5-6 times.
