    Would recommend this portable air conditioner, takes some time to hook up the vent, but otherwise great cooling machine.

    My son's bedroom has always been unbearably hot to the point where he couldn't sleep in it during the summer months. This portable unit quickly cools his bedroom in no time at all and now He has his room back. The unit's designed to draw the hot air from your room and vent it out a window, while it blows cold air from a supply vent located on top of the unit. The motor is not totally silent where you won't hear it run but it's not disturbingly loud.

    I was tired of always having to mount and dismount the AC every season, so I decided to switch to a portable unit. Got a decent deal and haven't looked back. Easy to move from room to room and remote has a LCD display that takes out all the guess work. Haven't tried the dehumidifier function yet (wasn't expecting it) but will use it when the time comes. Air directed upwords and chills the room fairly quick (can't direct vents any other direction). If your looking for a portable AC unit, I would highly recommend trying this one out.

    It uses 900 watts of electricity when running, 8.1 amps. I have only used the air conditioner feature (not the dehumidifier function). This was the only unit the store had at the time, and it had apparently been purchased and returned by someone else because this had the "inspected by Best Buy" tape on the box, though it seems to work fine and appeared to be in brand new condition. NOTE: Depending on the width of your window, you might have to cut a piece of plastic from the end of the included window spacer kit so that it fits. The window spacer kit for the vent is supposed to fit window openings measuring from 26.6 inches up to 52 inches. I used it in a window with a 36-inch opening, and I had to cut a couple inches off of one of the two plastic spacers because one spacer overlapped and blocked a couple inches of the vent opening, preventing proper connection of the vent hose. I wondered if that's why the other person returned it because they didn't have a hacksaw like I did to cut through the plastic to make it fit a standard 36-inch window.

    We have a guest bedroom that is at the end of the central A/C system and it is difficult to keep it cool. There is no air return and with the door closed, there is little cool airflow into the room. I inquired about installing a dedicated split system and was told it would run about $3000. The AC tech suggested I just get one these portable units and try it. So far it is performing very well. The exhaust vent has to be installed in a window, and since it is a ground floor room, it requires adding security stops to the window to keep it from being opened from outside. It is not too loud when it is running, It takes up more space in the bedroom than I would like, mostly due to the large exhaust duct on the back. But it performs very well.

    I got this unit to cool an approximately 12'X9' room with a 10' ceiling and one large window (about 6'X8'). The unit was really easy to set up which is really just attaching a hose from the back of the unit into the bottom of the window. They get a simple two plastic pieces, one fits into the other and slides to fit the window width. I unfortunately had a window that was too big for just the one plastic piece, but too large for the second as the inner piece blocked the hole that the vent attaches into. I was forced not to use the 2nd tube and just used the box Styrofoam to plug the remaining space in the open window. Bit of a design flaw, you could cut the plastic to make it fit, but I wanted to avoid that in-case I returned it. The unit remote is nice, but doesn't auto sync when you change setting on the unit itself without using the remote. It seems to have a hard time keeping the temperature below 80 on hot days in the 90's+, though this room has high ceilings and a huge window so maybe 14k BTU would have been better. The unit seems to work a little better when the temperature is set lower than you actually want so. That seems pretty par for the course with air conditioners. It works though and its got a pretty low hum while running. I have it right next to the couch and it doesn't bother me while watching TV. Great unit, maybe get the bigger model if you have strange rooms like I have.
