    Does the job

    I needed a SMALL a/c for my very tiny NYC kitchen that get strong afternoon sun and has a window, but poor ventilation when I am using my stove or oven. This was the smallest a/c I could find. It does cool but isn't particularly powerful. I hadn't realized that the vanes can only be adjusted from side to side , not up and down. That means I often have cold air blowing on me when I'm cooking, but it's not a deal breaker. The biggest issue I have is that the depth isn't 13 inches as shown on the website (and on the manufacturer's site too). The unit is 13" hanging outside the window plus there is another 2-3 inches inside my kitchen window. Since I have the unit in a window on my terrace, it juts out more than I expected. Having said that, this is the shortest depth I could find when a/c shopping in October (not lots of inventory at that time). So overall, this is an OK a/c. I'm not sure how it would do in a larger bedroom (even one that is 10x10). For the price, it's fine.

    Excellent AC!

    I needed an AC for a room that is roughly 650 square ft. and this unit really fit the bill. The room is located in the upper level of my home and is towards the front of the house which receives the most sun. The temperatures have been in the mid 90's and very humid but, this unit has cooled the room quickly and easily. I like the remote that comes with it too. It has a built-in temperature gauge that tells you the current temp of the room. The eco mode is also very nice. After the room reaches the desired temp, the unit will go to sleep and then come back on again when the temperature begins to fall out of range. Overall, it is a great unit and I would highly recommend it to anyone in the market for an AC.

    Awesome fix

    In the dead of Summer here in Florida, our AC went out. It got up to 89 degrees when I got home around 9/10pm and can only imagine how how it was mid day with the sun blazing. I’m glad I bought two of these units and Frigidaire’s 250sqft unit. Our AC cant be fixed for another week and these three plus a portable AC have been keeping the house at a solid 74. It’s been running day and night and kicks on when needed (so almost all the time) and I’m confident in it working. Installation was relatively easy. Two screws and everything slides into place; I recommend it as a two person job but you can honestly get through it with one if your physically able.

    Emergency handled

    Our central air conditioning went out. We thought we could ride it out with just fans until the new part came in. Wrong. My wife decided that if we could get the bedroom cool, it would be our oasis away from the rest of the hot house. She is so smart. A trip to Best Buy and I decided to give this Frigidaire window unit a try. AC window unit went in and took about 15 minutes. Our bedroom is 15 X 10, the exact dimensions stated on the AC box. Problem SOLVED. We had a picnic lunch on the bed and later slept in cool comfort.

    Solid little air conditioner

    I got these because their width is 16 inches and casement windows are 16 1/2 inches wide. Air-conditioners made for casement windows, since they aren't highly in demand, cost more than air-conditioners of a similar rating . I bought four of these air-conditioners for 60% of what two casement models would cost. I mounted them one above the other where the old casement models were. They're more efficient than the casement models , and both running together make less noise than the old casement models. They have an economy mode so the fans don't run when the temperature is cool enough. I'm very pleased with them… Good, solid , little air-conditioners .

    Very cute air conditioner.

    The room I purchased this air conditioner for is only 8 by 10 feet, very small room, and the box said good for rooms 10 by 15 feet, so I thought my room would be really cool. I was wrong, it hasn’t really been hot yet and it takes forever to cool room, not get cold, but cool. Not what I was expecting or wanting. It is super cute, realativly quiet and energy efficient and has an awesome remote, however, not enough to make up for not being cold enough.

      Jacksmom, thank you for sharing your review. I regret to hear about the inconvenience you’ve come across with your air conditioner. A unit that is too large for the space to be cooled will actually be less effective than one that's the correct size. Humidity is extracted from the air as it is drawn over and around the cool evaporator coils of the air conditioner. Therefore, a unit that is too large for the area will cool the room air quickly and shut off the compressor. Air temperature is lowered but room humidity remains high. The oversized unit will cycle on and off frequently but the room will feel damp, clammy, and uncomfortable. If you still have a concern of sorts, contact us at 1-888-203-1389 Mon-Fri 8am to 8pm and Sat 9am to 6pm EST. -Jennifer Frigidaire

    I bought two of these (one for each bedroom) after our central ac crapped out for the second time in a month. These two combined can keep our 900 sq/ft place that leaks air like a civ comfortable (if they’re left to run nonstop for 24-hr). Now that a permanent fix has been made to the central air I keep these set to the same temp as the central air because they will auto-start/stop (I really love that they do that!) when the set temp is reached. And I haven’t noticed any change to our electric bill!

    decent and quiet AC

    Bought this for a small room at the far side of the house the main AC does not reach well. Setup was pretty simple, does include a remote and the window extensions (some do not) keeps the room at a decent temperature. cons: the air is not super cold so it has to run more often does NOT dehumidify so you have cold wet air if its on sale buy it, or for a room you do not use often. If not go for a unit with a dehumidifier.

    I bought this for a small bedroom 10 feet by 11 feet. It more than does the job. The included accordion style window kit and hardware made installation easy. In 10 minutes i had this puppy humming. It’s not too noisy. I see some people complain about the noise this unit makes. It’s a machine. It’s going to make some noise. But it’s not excessive. This was a great middle of the road unit at a reasonable price.

    Purchased this to replace a different make/ model. It cooled the room well and the remote is a nice function but we noticed a rather significant increase to our electricity bill. Also this unit does not drip like what we're used to. Sounded like condensation was swirling but there was no dripping, maybe it's just how window ac units are made now.

    Purchased two of these window units for the two bedrooms in our house, and they're absolutely perfect. We close off the door to the other half of our home and let these two units cool our bedrooms, hallway, and shared bathroom and they do the job great. I feel much better leaving our pets in the house while we're at work in the summertime after purchasing these!

    I needed this little guy for a very small window in a very old house this past summer and it worked like a charm!! Easy to install, not heavy and pumped out enough cool air to keep a small living room comfortable. It is not the quietest machine but it is tolerable. The timer feature was great and I like that it had a remote control!

    Good a/c unit. Appearance is attractive and not too heavy. I was able to install unit on my own so that is a plus!!!! Only downside is a bit noisy when unit is running on a/c mode as opposed to fan mode. Also - it would be nice if remote had a backlight. Overall- very effective in cooling down a small room as promised!

    I bought two of these for my elderly parents based on reviews. After 1 week of use, one of the units became very noisy. I was away on vacation. By the time I returned, the return period had lapsed. I was referred the manufacturer whose customer service was not the best.

    We were in a bind and ran to BB in hopes they would have an air conditioner. We didn't think one this small would do what we needed but that was our budget at the time. We are almost to the end of July and it has cooled our living room and kitchen wonderfully. Great air conditioner for little money!

    I bought this , because my room gets a lot of sun and it gets pretty toasty in here. It works to cool my 8X10 room slightly if constantly on cool, not power saver or fan. It let wasps and mosquitoes in , both of which bite me in my sleep. It’s been 2 weeks and the filter light is already on.

    I ordered this AC from my local BestBuy store. It was delivered the next day. Installation was easy, but unfortunately, once I turned it on I realized it was completely defective. Sounds like a helicopter is preparing for take off in my bedroom.

    Bought this ac unit for the window of my 10 x 15 bedroom which wasn’t being cooled down by the home ac. Worked great. I didn’t install it permanently. Had a cat shelf I placed it on. Sometimes need to carry it to the bathroom to dump out water in the bottom. Overall works great.

    The ac works great except we had to carry that heavy thing from the store to the car, unload it just to get home and see it was cracked so we had to repack it up and go all the way back to our nearest store
