    Great little unit that pumps out cold air

    This little unit does a great job and keeping your area cold. I first used this unit in our master bedroom, which is a 13x15 and kept our room at 71 or below when it was in the high 80's outside. Thats with the unit set at 72-73, it still was hitting temp and shutting out the compressor a few times per hour, Now I have a much bigger window unit that was in the process of taking apart to clean so really this small unit was for my game room, which is about 15x25. My options were limited as the double hung window could only fit his unit or a portable unit(which i think work so-so and takes up to much floor space), The unit does a good job as i have a small tower fan to help spread the air flow. Since the game room is the lowest part of the house, it usually stays few degrees colder than all the other rooms, so this unit does a great job keeping the area in the 71-73 depending on how hot it is outside. Also compared to the two monster 12,000 btu windows units I have this unit is small and light weight so much easier to move. Also much is to be said about frigidaire as this is my 3rd purchase of there window units, and the other two (5 yrs, and 3yrs) still work as good as they did from the 1st day installed. Overall I would not purchase another brand for the window units.

    This model is drowning

    We purchased a small unit for a small room. It eventually will cool the room, but not without an enourmous amount of noise. It appears the bottom of the casing has to fill with water because the only hole or drain is 1/2" above the bottom. Once it has shut off, and comes back on it sounds like someone pulled a plug in a bathtub. The instructions only warn you not to drill a hole in the bottom of the unit, an obvious solution to the bubbling noisey problem. We called in and questioned the design and were told to buy a drain for it. The unit is leaning backwards out the window and the hole 1/2" above the bottom is in the top or high poin of the unit. When you bring it back into the room to examine the problem you will have water all over your room. In addition there is a 1" thick piece of styrofoam in the middle of the unit that looks like it should be removed. But there is absolutely no way to get it out, eventually it will absorb all this water, rot and stink.

    All Chill

    Recently went from central air to no air at new apartment in the middle summer. This unit came in clutch with the chill. It's easy use at the touch of a few buttons, and it and comes with a remote. I am a very hot person, I say I "run hot" hotter then most. I like to feel and fresh at all times possible and this keeps my room just that. There's a lo, hi and auto setting; there's a fan only, cool and energy saver settings as well. Other than that it a single push of an on off button and your choice of temp. even set a timer on it. Stay cool and a good little tip, if you would, if you look at the my pic. I've added an car air freshener to it perfect to keep the room smelling good while it's cooling

    Great A/C for the money

    This Frigidare 50000 BTU window unit is perfect for a small bedroom (150 sq ft). It comes with a remote and digital output showing the temperature both in the room (when the fan is on) and the desired temperature when the compressor is running. There are two fan speeds and while it is not whisper quiet, the noise level is not problematic. Itt fits very nicely in a window and the room cools down pretty quickly after the A/C compressor is engaged. Overall, no complaints. The price at Best Buy was decent as well. If you have a room that is 150 sq ft or less, this 5000 btu unit should do well for you.

    Not as good as I had hoped.

    This ac is not as good as I expected. Only one review mentioned it was loud and they were right. All others I read said it was quiet. The only way to quiet it is to use Energy Saver mode. Unfortunately when you do that, the fan isn't running all the time. Without the fan on the room becomes stagnant. I was looking for something small because I had to lug this to the 3flr floor. Luckily the weather hasn't been oppressive so I do not need to run it all the time or every day. I will not recommend this item to others.

    I love this a/c! It get really cold in about 10 minutes to feel it!. Have everything sealed and door closed! You can see all that water running outside ur window u know its really working! I love the fact the same a/c was sold at Homedepo for more, unless u like those cheap ones with the remote n the plastic dial pad that breaks really fast! I would never invest in one of those new remote controlled air conditioners, they are expensive and break easily and repairing one would.cost.u a new one just.breaking the plastic touch pad and remote alone will cost $$

    We have this little unit running in our living room and a larger unit running in the bedroom and the house stays cool (approx 1300 sq feet total upstairs). I have recently added blackout curtains to our living room windows and together with this unit it is a world of difference compared to this time last year. Comfortable temperature all day. Love the eco mode option too.

    This AC was great while it worked. Kept my entire garden apartment nice and cold. I loved it. A month and a half passed and it died on me. The reset filter came on so I cleaned the filter waited and turned back on but nothing. The unit would come on but stay doing nothing. I was very disappointed so I went to return and thankfully I was able to get a credit back for my unit since the Best Buy I went to no longer carried the unit.

    This air conditioner worked perfectly in cooling a large home office/guest room on the second floor of our house. Note: After installing, my wife discovered that I had not placed in directly in the middle of the window. While trying to correct this, it slipped and slipped out of the second floor window and crashed to the ground. Amazingly, besides a small dent, it DID NOT BREAK! It still works perfectly. That's a testament to the quality of workmanship and materials.

    Great AC For the Money

    Whether you just want to bring in cool air from the outside, or you want to cool down the room with AC, this little AC does the trick. I love the remote and the ability to set it for an hour or so and then it turns off while I'm asleep saving me even more money. I wish I had bought it the summer before. No more suffering trying to sleep in 90 plus degree weather with humidity. I may just buy another one for my dining room.

    i love this air conditioner because it is very quiet even when it is in high mode. i also love the fact that the unit doesnt rattle because the grill is fixed and the filter just slides out for cleaning. i love this air conditoner becasue it has a remote control which hardly any 5,000 btu air conditioners doesnt have plus it has enery saving mode which is great. it is also very small and compact.

    I have now owned this window unit for a year. It's survived two hurricanes, and still works. It is loud for sure, but usually the smaller the unit, the louder it is. It's a white noise so it really doesn't bother me much. I almost always have it on the lowest cool setting it will go, and also put it on high output. This sucker is still goin, I would buy it again, just in a bigger btu size.

    The a/c unit is perfect for the small room in which it is located, as long as the door is kept closed. It will cut on and off, though, at random times and only stays on for like 10 second before it cuts off. I think it has to do with the eco-function, but not really sure. It was a pain to install and required more than 1 person, but it certainly has made a difference in our room.

    So far, so good. But it hasn't been put to the test yet. I bought this because I have a small opening that it needs to fit in. Although the specifications give the minimum width as 23 inches (if I'm remembering correctly), I was able to modify the two wings on the sides so that it fit into a 21 inch space very nicely. Installation worked out great -- now I just hope it holds up over time.

    Sounds like rocks are clinking around inside it when I turn it off. Once that stops it hits the degree I have it set to and turns off, it's supposed to, BUT, it turns right back on, then off, then on. I am returning this product. Stinks because it is a pain to take out and put in. I called Frigidaire and there is nothing they can do so back to Best buy it goes.

    Definitely not the best AC but works well enough for a small room. Our bedroom is about 12x20 and it cools it off within 20 min or so. It is kind of loud but it fit in the window without issue and it's been working well. Would be 5 stars if not for the noise and we keep it on 67 to keep it cool. anything above that feels kind of stuffy.

    I bought 5000 BTU for my small size room and it's not working good. I replace that and another have same problem. Than I replace again and bought 6000BTU and that AC have same problem. I replace 3 time and have same problem.I had LG Ac before of 5000 BTU in same room and that AC was working really good. Overall If it's possible i want to give zero star for this product.

    I was very disappointed in this unit because I have the 8000 BTU version in my living room. That one is fantastic. This 5000 BTU unit cools well and has a good set of features (like energy saver, a circulating fan, adjustable louvers), but it is incredibly noisy when the compressor goes on, as in 3x as loud as the larger unit, loud enough to wake me up in a small room. Not recommended.

    This a/c gets REALLY COLD! I don't have to worry about that, and the fans make the air circulate very well. My only issue is it could be quieter. Don't misunderstand, the noise doesn't interfere with my sleeping, watching TV or reading. I'm just more familiar with apartments that have central-air. But, I'll take the cooling it provides over noise, anyday!

    It's way louder than my old, 15 year old A/C was, so I'm having a little bit of a hard time getting used to this (I have migraines, so louder noises are an issue for me). And it's definitely for SMALL rooms, my bedroom is small, but most of the times I leave it on energy saver mode I have to take it off of it, cause the bedroom gets too warm too quickly. Other than that, it works fine.
