    About this model - I had read other's comment that this is air conditioner is not cooling at all. But I did not took them seriously and bought this from Amazon based on the rating (#4 in Home & Kitchen > Heating, Cooling & Air Quality > Air Conditioners & Accessories > Window). But they were right!! This is one of the worst designed model from Frigidaire. With the temperature sensing remote, the engineers at Frigidaire forgot to implement the sole purpose of the air conditioner that is cooling. I did everything to make this work by reading and following the instructions mentioned in the use and care manual but in vain. I felt like I wish I would have taken those reviews seriously. About the Frigidaire - They might be market leader in room air-conditioner (I am guessing, because on every other window, I see Frigidaire air conditioner). But there customer support is awful. Just wanted to confirm whether the unit is defective, or I am doing something wrong, I tried to reach customer support using all their number mentioned on their manual/website, from each called support number, IVR gave me new number to call. The number I have called - 800-944-9044, 706-860-4110, 888-775-6937, 800-374-4432, 706-860-4110. Not only this, the customer contact form available on their website gave some error after submitting my concern. This is a big question mark on their capability on providing service after sales.

    Best Marital Aide EVER

    Everybody gets cranky when they're uncomfortable, and my husband and I started getting testy at each other as the weather turned warmer... and warmer... until we hit levels of DON'T TOUCH ME DON'T LOOK AT ME. It was too hot, basically. We sat down and tried to figure out why we were so miserable and had started picking fights with each other over the littlest things, and it really came down to being constantly assaulted by humidity and heat. So we went to Best Buy and bought this. Best idea ever. The remote control shows the current temp and the unit shows the target temp, and they never really seem to get to the same, but that's more of a failing in our purchasing one with less power than our square footage required. Even so, we're keeping it on energy saver setting so it doesn't get too overworked, and it's SOOOO nice. at night, we turn it off energy saver and on to cool and it's wonderful. The remote is pretty intuitive even with all the buttons, and keeping the fan on low limits the humidity getting into our apartment. So WIN.

    Cools great but a bit noisy.

    Using this to cool down a flat roof single car garage converted into a home office in Hawaii. Flat roof does have a coat of white elastomeric coating so that helps to keep the room cool. 8000 BTU's does a fairly decent job at cooling the area. Takes about an hour to cool the room. This is the fourth air conditioner install in the home throughout the years and installation was simple as expected. All required materials needed and only simple tools used to install in garage window. The remote sensing feature works great. Air conditioner is located on the opposite wall from where the remote is kept. Normally set the temp at 74 degrees and the remote sensor feature will shut off the unit when it reaches that temp in Energy Saver mode. Once the Remote senses the required temp, the entire room is at the desired temp, not just in front of the unit. Great feature. Only issue is the noise. It has a higher pitched "hum" than what I'm used to. More prominent at lower fan speeds. Previous 8000 BTU air conditioners from other brands perform quieter. The noise is louder on the exterior of the unit. Which is good for me, bad for the neighbors. But, for an office/garage, it is sufficient. And for that reason, the 4 stars. Purchased unit on sale. For the money, it's a decent unit. No mechanical problems so far.

    Did a lot of homework on this and other A/Cs. I narrowed it down to the LG and the Frigidaire. Would have been nice if stores had an LG to look at. It came down to was what was available in stores plus Frigidaire was a well known brand. Checked out different stores for LG's and they were promising us that they will order it and it would be a week to get it in. That wasn't going to help us with the heat wave coming. We went to Best Buy because they had a large supply of Frigidaires. The store price was higher than what the Best Buy website had on it. The store was able to match the Best Buy website, which was way less than the LG equivalent. Installation was a bit difficult because of the way the windows were constructed on our rental house, but we got it in and going. It is installed on the second story window and it cooled the entire second story of our house in about ninety minutes! We love our Frigidaire A/C! We are glad we made this choice! It is now more comfortable to sleep at night or just relaxing!

    Better than our three old 5000 BTU machines.

    We bought two of these Frigidaire 8000s to replace three 5000btu window units. We have a four room, top floor apartment. It gets hot on summer days particularly in the late afternoon. Even on the hottest days when the sun is blasting through the windows, two of these Frigidaires keep things a nice 72 degrees. The remotes have temperature sensors in them. You can set the remotes anywhere (chair, bedside table) and the units will keep cooling until the remote's temp is where you want it. That is pretty awesome. Noise? Well, our three old 5000 btu machines made quite a racket. These are much more reasonable. Plus, much of the time these machines go into auto-shut off which means periods of quiet (and probably saves a bundle on electricity). They have a much different feel than our old machines -- I mean these units feel more solid and are better engineered than the cheap window units we used to have. It would have cost $360 to buy three 5000btu replacements. Putting a bit of extra $$ into these (about $80 with the sale on) meant better engineering, remotes, temperature sensing, and the "clean air" feature. Well worth it. After a month or so with these units I don't think I'll ever buy anything other than Frigidaire. This is a good product that seems like it's actually made to last.

    This A/C replaced another one that stopped cooling. After replacing it with the new unit, I discovered that the inside of the condensing coils was coated with dirt. Once I clean it, I will have a perfectly good spare. This unit has some very nice features including the remote control which senses the local temperature and sends control signals to the unit, rather than just relying on the air temperature at the window. Also the electrostatic device can help remove more smaller particles like pollen, better than the mesh filter alone. It is only $10 US more than a similar Frigidaire unit at another store that does not have these two features. My oldest Frigidaire unit was made in 2006 and it's still going. Since then I had bought two units of other brands (one starts with an L and the other an S) which are in the Window A/C graveyard. I now have FOUR of these units in use and one spare.

    I had previously been using a smaller air conditioner, one that has been passed around my family for about a decade. I decided that I needed something that would do a better job keeping me comfortable. I had intended to use this air conditioner solely in my bedroom. After a few nights of outstanding performance, I realized that this air conditioner could probably be used to keep my living/dining room and kitchen cool. I have been completely satisfied with how this unit performs. Although the BTU rating of this piece is lower than what is recommended for the larger space I am cooling, I have been nothing but happy at the performance provided by this air conditioner. Also, having a second thermostat in the wireless remote helps to ensure that the desired temperature is reached throughout the entire room.

    GREAT AC

    THIS 8000 BTU Frigidaire Window AC works well, like the 12000 BTU I purchased from BEST BUY FOR MOST OF MY 1ST FLOOR. I would purchase these products again when their avg life ends 6-10 yrs or more. Since I was an electrician in my past i have whole house AC at 1/3 of power of a 2 ton central AC unit. Also in older homes a 2-3 ton central air blows cold air that is to heavy to make it to 2nd floor and use the furnace cold air return for hot air return but the hot air is on the ceiling not the floor, and this is a huge waste of $$. I found about 75.00 worth of electric supplies 20 yrs ago worth it to make my Pittsburgh Central AC by far the most cost effective AC unit in the tri state Area and Frigidaire is a major player in this.. Elec bill average 110-140$ a month. I can live with that :)
