    I bought this model because it was on sale for 249.99 at the time and because it is portable. It cools off everything great and allows me to relocate if I want more centralized cooling with ease.

    To get a unit as good as this one your going to have to pay double the money. I'm very happy with my purchase. The only downside is the cheap plastic that holds the line to your window.

    This a.c. is perfect for a small room. The best part is that it is portable and can be taken from room to room as necessary. Exactly as described.

    This portable unit does the job but we thought it would come with the window kit. It doesn't. And if you use the dehumidifier option you have to empty it with a siphon.

    Had my portable ac for over a year now and it keeps me cool...no issues at all...the remote control is convenient and I love how it swings up and down. Also the fan and dehumidifier function works well too. Highly recommend. Thinking about buying another for kids room.

    Purchased the Insignia 450 sq. ft. portable A/C last week and found it easy to set up. Fit into my bedroom window without any problems. Neither exceptionally quiet nor noisy. More than enough power to comfortably cool a sizable bedroom.

    The Insignia Portable Air Conditioner made a tremendous difference in our comfort level for us. It made a great difference for our pets (cats) as well. Also, it was very easy to set up and install. We are considering purchasing another unit for a different area of our home.

    Decent Portable AC

    Doesn't fully do the job for me. I have to put the AC facing the bed or couch directly in order for that area to stay cool. Doesn't cool entire room. But I guess it's been ok with the crazy summer weather.

    Portable air conditioner, dehumidifier and fan

    I needed an air conditioner for my upstairs, without the hassle of a window unit. I had the unit initially installed, made it easier to watch how it was done, so I could later move it as needed. This unit is perfect for my large bedroom, cools well, dehumidifies the air when needed. The unit is loud when cooling, but I sleep well with the nose acting like "white noise". Good investment for the price,

    Fact! Insignia is a BEST BUY Co, brand! If you don't mind a portable AC that lets out a gallon of water every 4-5hours yeah picture that! Your home floor will be damaged guaranteed! Avoid this nightmare

    I have had it for about 3 weeks. It has done better then my precious AC purchases. Decent for a small Room. Got th job done over a strand of 90 degree days. The hose is durable and easy to attach/assemble.

    First portable AC

    Posted
    GC57

    This would be my first portable AC unit and I'm pretty happy I bought it. It has a thermostat control that shuts down the compressor when it hits desired temp setting, the fan still runs like every AC unit I've used. It is fairly quiet and blows a ton of cold air. My wife didn't like the exhaust hose, but we made it work so that it looks acceptable. So far so good, everything works as expected and described.

    This is my first summer in my current apartment, and so far the AC has gone out 3 times this summer(I live in Phoenix). Well I bought this unit on my way home from work after getting an email informed of the AC being out for a few hours. I had to take it out of the box to get it in my car, and I was not paying attention to the contents at that time. I get home to find out the AC is back on, but decide to keep it because I am sure it will come in handy, and realize that I am missing a few contents. This is my second portable AC unit, had one in Texas, so I know that it's missing the foam seal tape and the window "holder" for the window had already been cut, the remote had batteries installed and I had zero hardware to see her the window "holder." I'd be fine without these parts, as they are easily worked around or purchased... But I did pay normal(it was on sale online) price for this, and that's the frustrating part.

    Great portable air conditioner

    Bought one last year for my elderly mom's room during a mini heat wave in May. Our window ac units were not yet in and I needed something to help cool her room. It worked so beautifully I came back this year and bought 2 more! It was so easy to run too. Remote control access, timer and ability to change airflow and direction easily and whenever needed. No ac in a rarely used room? No problem, wheel this one over, super fast install and within minutes its blowing out super cool air!! Quiet, easy to setup and super portable. I already installed both new ones and tested them. I have been told portable units are not quite as "efficient" than window ones but honestly I did not see any difference in my electric bill from the summer before so idk? Will probably buy the same exact unit again next year and replace a few of the old, heavy, hard to install window units! Have already recommended to family and friends. Great unit, great price (best for one this size), sleek looking and quiet. Buy it.

    I wish I could give a good review on this but I had such a bad experience with my purchase. I ordered June 5 and received June 12 missing the window vent kit. I was shipped another one missing the same vent kit with no parts available for this unit. No one could help me. It was 3 weeks before both units were picked up and I was given credit. No help from the manufacturer either because no parts available.
