    This was a really easy install. They have everything you need to do it yourself. I've had it a few weeks now and the noise is not horrible to me as I have read in other reviews. Seems pretty standard for a fan. My box fans I have had are more loud than this unit. We haven't gotten into the really hot days of summer yet. Only one day at 80. And I know it will get into the upper 90's lower 100's later in the summer. So I will return to give a more up to date review if it lets me. But, so far. The 80 degree days have been more than comfortable. My apartment is 525 sq feet and it sits on the hottest corner of my bldg.

    I have had several different window AC units of this size and rough volume capacity over the last decade. This one definitely blows the most cold air and does an excellent job of cooling, while being the second loudest unit I have had. Great for cooling down the room, but, you wouldn't want to sit too close to it for too long. Fits easily into place and has extra padding and such for securing it in and filling gaps. Simple to understand buttons on the face of it, but the remote control is a bit fickle and takes a bit of understanding as to how it works.

    Moved to this 12,000 btu a/c from a 10.000 btu. It cools much better than my 10,000 did. I like the eco mode which actually shuts the unit down when temp is reached and restarts when it starts warming. My negatives are its somewhat loud and the light from outside shines through the white Styrofoam insulation. Black would have been better. All in all a nice unit with many features. including start/stop timer and temp sensor on the remote

    I'd give it 4 1/2 stars. Can't give it 5 because I haven't had it long enough but I LOVE it. Had this before. Lasted a long time. Frigidaire seems to make A/C's that last. Pretty quiet too w sounds that give you the white noise. Only complaint thus far is when you 1st turn it on it goes into $Save mode. It needs to go into the Mode you had it in when you shut it off. I don't like it shutting off & on. Besides I think that would age it faster. I got the 12,000 btu which is larger than I need but I LOVE that it doesn't have to work that hard to keep me Cool

    Air Conditioner

    I had ordered a different air conditioner on line for store pick up. It was ready right a way, but was damaged when I got it home. I had to take it back and of course that was the last one in stock. They did offer me this one at a discounted price. This one too was damaged, but much less then then first one. Easy installation. It is pretty loud, but definitely works great. I wish I could adjust the air flow better, as it blows straight out even with the adjustable vents.

    We bought this AC to replace an older window unit. We decided to move it to the dining room instead of the living room where it wouldn't have to compete with the noise of the tv. It does a good job of cooling our first floor (kitchen, living room and dining room), and I usually keep it on Auto/Econ 70 degrees (I like a comfortable temperature, not too cold). It is a little noisy though, but since it's in a room that isn't often used, we've tuned it out.

    1) The FedEx guy practically THREW the unit onto the porch and sped away! Didn't bother to ring the doorbell. He also took the packing slip...(was he on the lamb?) 2) The unit showed signs of damage, as if it had been "pre-owned" (aka, USED). The hubs and I were felt like we were about to burst into flames, so we had to keep it...a 10% discount was offered. It is NOT COOL to charge new-item prices for used products!!!

    We've had this air conditioner for over a month, and find it to be efficient in keeping us cool during a particularly hot summer. The installation was easy and the remote works great. A bit noisier than expected, but that's assumed from a window unit. It's priced very well for what you're acquiring... Wish we were given the option for 4 1/2 Stars!

    The air conditioner works very well and definitely keeps my one bedroom apartment cool. I have the air conditioner placed in my bedroom window on the opposite end of the apartment and have a fan that helps circulate the air into the living room which is on the other end. My only complaint about the air conditioner is that it is a little noisy.

    I needed an A/C for my living room and bought this one. My living room is fairly large and even on power saver mode on 70F it keeps the room and the hallway cool. Its not frigid by any means but it is a good temperature at the regular setting. It was fairly easy to install, with help of course. It took my brother and I about 20 minutes.

    Good AC, annoying beep

    This AC works very well, but beeps with every adjustment. Not sure why an obnoxious beep for each degree is needed. I would have liked to know this before purchasing. The sound cannot be turned off according to Fridigaire customer service. Aside from that, the AC works well and cools effectively.

    When I first installed this it took a while to warm up 30 mins. After that it kept cool an apartment the. Size of 850sf. I was somewhat surprised but it did its job. The fan is a but noisy and the eco option world great. Do install this unit where the sun doesn't hit it.

    We needed a small window unit to cool our camp in the mountains. When we put our unit in, it cooled the camp quickly and kept it cool. We had a much more enjoyable time being able to come in out of the heat and humidity. Was definitely a good purchase.

    This is our second Frigidaire AC. The only issue is it needs a dedicated circuit pr outlet. It doesn't say that on the box and took nearly an hour to get that info from a Frigidaire rep.

    Our old air conditioner gave out so we were looking for a larger unit that could cool our rooms. We put this in our hall and it coos the hall and 2 bedrooms. (we have a small house). It works great for what we need it for.

    This air conditioner gets my large bedroom nice and cold if left on for an hour or so. It is somewhat quiet and the remote is very handy. Hope it last as long as my previous A/C at 30 years

    We needed some bedroom sized air conditioners for this hot humid summer. these units are quiet and cool the rooms nicely. Eco mode saves energy and this is a nice feature as well.
