Gets the job done. I was in the market for a low-end air conditioner with a remote control, and this was the best price I could find.
This model was a little difficult to put together, the screws are about an 1/4 of an inch shorter than they should be. But it only took a little extra effort, and using a real screwdriver instead of one on a multi-tool.
The unit I received looked like it was damaged during shipping, but it was only the side dented. It doesn't seem to effect its operation. But beware it ships in its own box and has no extra padding.
As for operation, it cools off a small room with a high ceiling and four 6'x4' windows. It's been on for about an hour, and I've definitely noticed a difference. It's certainly not cold, and it's on its coldest setting, but it makes the room comfortable. I'm moving into a new apartment in a week with only 2 normal size windows and will update how it works. All of the controls are on the remote control, except for power, which is also on the unit.
Overall, I'm happy with the purchase knowing that I was looking for low-end with the convenience of a remote and timer. ...more info
Great unit! Compact and affordable! This is a perfect unit for small spaces--it is compact and very reasonably priced which is especially important for such a seasonal item. I purchased both this unit and the Kenwood unit and they have worked perfectly this season to cool the warmest rooms in my house!...more info
