Delonhi USA- The worst service for spare parts that you can imagine I have an older model (PAC10) which is nothing I would recommend. It is huge although is called portable (it looks slim only from certain angle used in pictures) and was just very expensive for what it is. It is almost as noisy as window AC. If you really want European standard AC, that is quiet; energy efficient and does not need window or duct work, I would advise to check "mini split ductless" type of AC/Heat Pump (these need technician to install them though).
The reason I write here is that at certain point you will need to buy parts or accessories from DeLonghi authorized provider in the USA, Fox International. This is the worst possible (unimaginable) service that you may get. I have placed an order 1 month ago and my order status is still "processing, check in 24 hours". Knowing that spare parts will be needed not too long after purchase, I strongly recommend choosing another brand.
very good unit Overall, I am very pleased with this unit. Easy to install and works great! Would recommend this to someone who needs a portable ac. ...more info
decent portable AC unit I would only buy this over a window AC unit if you value the portability. It is quite heavy, but is on wheels so it is portable. AC unit cools well. Window insert is poorly designed, so you need to use putty or something else to modify the fit in the window sill to prevent the flow of warm outdoor air into the room....more info
Totally worth the money! This air conditioner definitely does what it says it does. It cools very quickly and is fairly compact. Pretty powerful for the size. Simple and easy to set up.
The first unit that arrived was damaged during transit. This is the only real downfall in ordering this machine from Amazon. The air conditioner is shipped in the same box that you would get it in if you purchased this from a brick and mortar store. So, if the shipping people decide to drop it, the unit stands a very good chance of being damaged.
I did have to return the first air conditioner. Amazon was very quick to replace it. The second one arrived without any damage whatsoever.
Both units were brand new. They weren't refurbs nor were they returns.
The only reason that I didn't give this 5 stars is the shipping damage issue though that has nothing to do with this product's performance. But we were in the middle of a massive heat wave, my house air conditioner broke (!) over Labor Day weekend and waiting a couple more days for a working unit was agonizing. (yes, we are still waiting for the repairperson to fix our home ac.)
All in all, I'm quite pleased with my purchase and yes, I would recommend this product!...more info
defective product Unit operated for a day and a half. Even during this short time period the compressor was very noisy at startup and the fan sounded as if it was hitting something as it was speeding up. After this 36 hour period the unit would run for about 5 minutes and then just blow hot air. With so many other portable products available I would caution anyone thinking of buying this unit....more info
Nice Unit I've had the C100 for about a week now and am very happy with the way it cools and dehumidifies. Even the "low" setting is quite powerful and blasts cold air. The controls are easy to use.
The rotary compressor did make a "clicking" sound when I first used it, but this disappeared after several hours of use and now works fine.
I highly recommend it as a portable -...more info
Superior quality! Smaller than similar portable air conditioners. No need to empty water. Only downside I can tell is it is a little loud and when it arrived the box was banged up. Very good for the price....more info
great product This AC unit cools our server room nicely. The best part is - no tank to empty or drain line to run. Works great for the need....more info
Satisfied customer Very happy with quality and function of air conditioner. Exactly as described. Fits perfectly into window. And the price was very reasonable. ...more info
Not so good There were two things wrong with the Delonghi Portable AC that I recently bought and then returned: 1) A minor flaw with the right side exterior plastic panel that kept snapping out of place; 2) A major problem with the circulating fan that started making a loud noise after about 12 hours of operation. The two problems were unrelated. ...more info
Great alternative to a window air conditioner This was a terrific alternative for an older home with electric heat and no venting. It seems to work nicely with older style windows. I would recommend it....more info
