Ease of Use:


  • Remove the box and plug it in!
    Reviewed by Beth - July 8, 2019

    This unit could not be easier to set up and operate! The makers of this product really had the consumer in mind. I cut the straps holding the box around it, slid off the box then used the plastic packaging that came with the unit and some packing tape to seal off the window screen and it was up and running in less than 30 minutes. I loved how the unit was ready to go with the casters already on the bottom. The only assembly is twisting the ventilation hose onto the back and into the frame on the window screen which was super quick. There is no bucket to empty and not terribly noisy to operate. If you want easy set up and a cool living space this AC is a great choice!

  • The BEST air conditioner ever!
    Reviewed by Tara R. - June 29, 2018

    I was very skeptical buying online with so very little reviews (albeit very positive!) but I took the chance and I absolutely love it. It arrived secure and intact- everything was wrapped carefully. Set-up took less than five minutes. What really surprises me was the size, it's almost 2'5 tall and very slim. It takes up very little room in my bedroom which I'm happy about as I was worried it would be bulky and noticeable. However, do not let it's small size fool you- it's powerful! Cools down the room in minutes. This is one of the best purchases I have made in a while. You will not be disappointed!!

  • Excellent Small-Room Air Conditioner
    Reviewed by G_Steezy - July 4, 2019

    I'm using it right now! It's an excellent piece of equipment that is significantly cooling down my 50 sq ft bedroom. The difference in temperature was noticeable in a few minutes. It runs loud, so be forewarned that the compressor on this baby sacrifices convenience for cost-effectiveness. You'll KNOW the fan is spinning, and the compressor has a rattle to it like a bike chain that is being cross-geared. That being said, I would wholeheartedly recommend this unit in smaller communal spaces and bedrooms where, like me, noise doesn't bother you because you sleep like a drunk bear hit with a tranquilizer! The controls are simple to utilize, and readouts are clear, and it appears reliable. Good purchase for me.

  • Awful terrible such a waste of money
    Verified BuyerReviewed by MD1185 - August 17, 2018

    Purchased eight of these and they’re terrible! We ended up putting in what old air conditioners we had left after giving some away! One sits under Our thermostat. The air-conditioner says 61 thermostat says 80 I believe the thermostat.! Stay away! Don’t buy! We replaced our air-conditioners to avoid The cheap look of them hanging out the window, only to replace them with a piece of junk taking up space with a huge tube that lays across the disappointed...

  • Loud and heavy
    Reviewed by Matt - June 22, 2018

    This thing is LOUD, even for portable AC unit standards. I tried some tricks I read online to reduce the noise but it did not improve much. It's also HEAVY, more than other brands. You shouldn't buy this online if you won't be at home to receive it. Best Buy sends it by Canada Post and it will require you to pick the package up at a local post office; it weighs 24 kg and it's no fun task to carry it back home yourself.
