    This portable AC is blowing cold air as it should be, but unfortunately it's very loud.

    Ok, I read a lot of reviews and I went for it. I tested out of the box and was super, then I installed it (ugly windows system so I had to take glass out etc etc.) Its powerful, may be 8500 BTU its more the real number, but after a while running the compressor will start making higher noise PRO: - Price - Power - Remote and functions are ok CONS: - It gets loud after 20 or 30 minutos of running non stop. - The most low fan speed still noisy and blows too much. - Energy ratio its 8.3 !!! modern split are 19! by law central house a/c should be 14 or more. so, its very bad energy ratio. I took this unit back, I wanted to use at my office room during the day and put the central ac higher. but after a while, the noise it's just too much. Or the unit was bad, or people that use this unit on a bedroom while sleeping are deaf,

    The air condition is a great choice for a large basement It's a bit too loud for rooms And the position of air vent could be on the top instead of current

    This portable AC is loud, doesn't cool a room as fast as I hoped and pulls a lot of electricity. The plug gets hot and I started smelling hot wire one night. I had to unplug for 2 days and use my ceiling fan. It's working now but after 5 hours of use the wire gets hot.

    Bought this a.c. To cool my living room and kitchen of my apartment. It does the job but it is noisy. I have to turn my t.v. Up louder but great alternative if you can't fit an a.c. In your window

    Good for a smaller area. Only negative I have is that it is very loud and it makes it so that only half of my blings close.

    A normal window unit was too small, this fit perfectly and was easy to install. A little loud but not too bad.

    This unit cools a small room well but is louder than I would like. As long as you don't mind the noise it's a decent air conditioning unit.

    Finally was able to test this out last weekend. Heat wave got us turning on this machine and I got really surprised. This bad boy was able to cool down our big bedroom. Its not that chilly but I couldn't tell if it was heatwave. Why only 4 stars? because it was really really loud. I love white noise but this one is really loud that it wakes me up sometimes in the middle of the night.

    This AC works great, easy to setup. It is a little loud even on low but what do you expect, it's sucking in air and blowing it out. Keeps my living room nice and cool.

    works great. bought it for the back bedroom and it's not the quietest one on the market but the noise is tolerable. I like how easy it's to move around, flexible hose and wheels allow easy movement of unit.

    It does the job and cools the room when its over 80. It is a little loud, but that has to be expected. It claims portability, but the hose connected to the window really makes that misleading.

    Terrible A/C. Barely cools a room 10 degrees F.

    This is a terribly inefficient A/C. My room is much smaller than 400 sq ft and this A/C at max settings can't even cool it down to 85'F when it's 95'F outside. It is very loud too, there's absolutely no way someone can sleep while this is running, even at the lowest speed. Also it started to smell bad after one use, meaning that mold and bacteria is probably growing in it. I am looking for Best Buy to contact me for return information as I am extremely dissatisfied with this product.

    Works well, but when the compressor kicks off it vibrates the whole unit and is very loud. Wakes me up several times a night since it kicks on and off several times per hour. I've even opened it up and it seems to be caused by the rubber mounting grommets not absorbing enough of the shake. Also there were two screws loose on the inside, one inside the fan Get a model with better build quality.
