- REMOVE THE SECRET FOAM- 14 juillet 2021
lmao you can really tell who did and who didnt find the fun secret foam puck they left for us in the tube. like the average person who does not know the machinations of an airconditioner i assumed based on the wierdly high quality of said foam, surely this is intentional? obviously they know more than i, ill leave it in. yea thats not how acs work, get that foam puck outta there and it will work for you. this is for people who havent figured it out yet 4 stars because its expensive but it does the job wellYes, I would recommend this to a friend.

- Love it!- 11 août 2021
Saved us from the oppressive heat this summer … we live in a condo and do not have the option of HVAC or central air. We also have Bahama-style windows, that crank out from the bottom. Bought some plexiglass, had the people there cut out the hole for the exhaust. Easy. Glued the ring for the exhaust hose into the plexiglass, then replaced the existing screen with the plexiglass. Hooked up the hose, rolled the unit near the window and we stayed comfortable while everyone else was suffering. Highly recommend.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

- Excellent Product for my 600 sq ft condo- 1 août 2021
I was a bit concerned with all the bad reviews this machine had, but our recent BC heat dome, this was the only one left to buy, so I was lucky as there were not many to find anywhere. The machine works excellent so far, keeps my place nice and cool as we are into our 2nd heat wave now, so happy I have it. A few things, but I am assuming its how it runs, reading other reviews, but it not a quiet machine by any means and when the compressor shuts down, it shakes the machine, almost like clunking sound. Still its been fine now as I have been keeping it on low setting, at 23 c and its perfect in my condo. Buy Best shipping process needs a complete over haul. Really bad communication…but it did arrive eventually. Overall, if you want something to keep you cool and comfortable, definitely recommend this machine.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great unit by all means- 3 juillet 2021
I was very skeptical about buying this specific unit. After using it for the master bedroom, I can state the following : 1- It does the job perfectly fine and in fact it exceeded my expectation. 2- Definitely provides clean air given that I have an air purifier in the room. 3- When it is like 37C degrees outside , and the room is so hot, with the assistance of a small fan it really does the cool the room to a very satisfying comfort level. 4- The hose is short ? Yes a little bit, but I got a nice adjustable base for it, case dismissed! 5- Noisy? Honestly the noise level is not that bad at all, very comparable to those split ones in any hotel. Nothing out of the norm. 6- Great looking unit indeed. 7- You can feel the quality of manufacturing and the design of this unit right away. 8- The fact that you don't need to worry about draining any water is a great technology for sure. After all I believe this unit is worth every penny paid for it and definitely does not look or operate as those of cheap quality. Note: please do your homework of good window insulation , no sun light , close all doors and windows and you will be happy with this product.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

- Delonghi Portable 12000 btu air conditioner- 30 juin 2021
The product info on this machine on the Best Buy web site did not give a model number. The model is PACEX270LN3AWH. I searched around and as far as I can see, I bought the last one available in a store last week online. The next day it was marked unavailable, and then marked discontinued. When I checked the Delonghi web site, this model was not listed. I thought I was getting a good price, but didn't know I was buying a discontinued model. I suspect Best Buy knew about this and just didn't bother posting this info. The Best Buy customer service people brought the box out to my car lying on its side, and it had to be on its side in my car to get it home. Reading the manufacturer's info, they state that if it has been on its side, when unpacked, the machine should be left standing upright for at least 6 hours, and 24 is better. It was easy to unbox. There was no info in the operating instructions about where packing material was to be removed, so I removed the obvious stuff. After 6 hours, The air venting tube is slightly over 4 ft in its extended form. The horizontal opening windows in our condo are fairly high, and the tube with an adapter on each end barely reached. The adapter that attaches the tube to the machine just sits in place, and is easy to dislodge if the machine is jarred or moved. The other end snaps into place into the window bracket. The window bracket is long enough for our windows without using the extender part that comes with the machine. After 6 hours I turned the machine on. It seemed to start up okay, but every few minutes the machine would shake and the fan speed sounded like it was slowing down. The initial air that came out was cool, but after a few min the air became hot. So I shut down the machine and left it sitting for another day. Before the next start up, I moved the machine from one room to another, and as I was disassembling the tubing, I noticed some black material in one of the tube adapters. I pulled it out, and it was a 2 inch thick piece of sponge like packing material. I have no idea why it was in one adapter and not the other, but it clearly was blocking the air flow through the tube. After restarting the machine, it worked fine. I don't know if it was the sponge removal or just allowing it to sit longer, or both. This machine is a 12000 BTU rated machine. The air temp at the outflow vent of it was around 50 ºF. We were having a heat wave, and the air temp outside was over 100 ºF. In a 10X12 room, the machine kept the temp in the mid 80s, with the blinds and windows and door closed. There are some You Tube videos of these types of portable air conditioners, and my expectation was that it would lower room temp by up to 10 degrees, so it is performing as expected. The only other thing I would note is that the air exhaust hose does get hot. It is in the room you are trying to cool, so its radiated heat into the room will decrease the effectiveness of the machine. i read a review somewhere where someone said they wrapped some kind of insulation around it to reduce the heat going into the room from it, but I don't remember what material was used, or whether that is a safe thing to do. The machine is fairly easy to move from room to room. The fan function is not as good as many of the stand alone fans you can buy, and in a larger room you would need another fan to move the cool air around. I measured the sound level with an app on my phone, and when the machine was at maximal cooling output, the noise level was around 63 decibels near the machine. With just the fan on it was in the high 50s. This was about the same as the stand alone fans we have, and didn't bother us. So we have used it pretty much continuously through record breaking temperatures, and its performance is as I expected, based on online reviews. The next question is how long will it last before it breaks down. I would recommend this machine to others, as long as they understand what level of performance to expect from it.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
