Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by diehardmaui Perfect and Portable.
Love that it has a huge tank to be able to fill with water and ice. Perfect when we had a heat wave recently. I love the style...not the usual boxy type.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tristan Leaked Immediately, Hoses come kinked with no mention of hoses or pictures of how they should be in instructions
Following directions explicitly, when I took out water container to fill and check filter media, the two clear hoses were kinked. There was an open ended hose that looked like one of those hoses tied together should go into, and when I called store for assistance, after being made to feel like I was bothering him because he was busy, finally got him to open one up and look. He said he easily de-kinked the hose with his finger, and because mine would NOT de-kink, made it sound like I was at fault. There is a small third open ended up-facing hose that looked like one of those other ones should be inserted into, but nothing is mentioned either online or in instructions, there are no hoses even pictured. When I plugged it in, it leaked all over my carpet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SonomaGuy Works Like a Charm
Just what I needed to combat the often hot summer days here in Northern CA's Sonoma Valley.
Easy to assemble, easy to move around my condo, and rapidly cools down either my bedroom or home office, depending on where I place it. Much easier to install and use than a portable air conditioner. Adding some ice to the water reservoir does help improve the unit's ability to quickly belt out a nice stream of cool air.
Glad I bought and am thinking of getting another just for downstairs (the one I bought is upstairs).

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MRH Not worth the money.
inadequate fan, cooling is minimal at best even with ice. terrible product for the money for the heat of AZ. Doesn't even cool a small bathroom.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by igohere4u For a Super Small Room ... like a 6 X 8 Cell
This unit although beautiful in design does not measure up to its potential. I was pleasantly surprised by the size and ease of setup right out of the box. However that was short lived once I plugged it in. How should I put this. HMMMM my 90 year old grandmother could blow hard than this unit does, not to mention the only thing that it could cool would be a room that's like a 6 X 8 cell.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by singlelady Works good for single woman
As a single woman living alone I couldn't deal with having to climb up on the roof and switch over from heat to the whole house swamp cooler. It is a lot of work for a weak single lady so I looked for portable ac units. The AC units were very heavy nearly 100lbs of which I cannot lift by myself so I opted for a portable swamp cooler which were much lighter. I had to get help moving it from the store to my car because it was so bulky and I was worried it wouldn't fit in my car but luckily it did. When I got home I was able to unpack it myself and get it running. It cooled my bedroom just fine which was what I needed. I live in the Southwest and it dry heat. It is lightweight and it provides a nice cooling effect for the room, obviously not as cool as an ac unit but I can handle heat better than cold. It's great for nights when it gets to above 90 F. I'm happy with my purchase and would recommend it for single people who don't have a lot of upper body strength to move heavy stuff.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AZCustomer Cheaply made and leaky!
Purchased this unit 11 days ago and today it has started to leak. I've tried every adjustment, cleaning filters, water reservoirs, new positions, different floor surface but it still continues to leak. The troubleshooting section of the manual doesn't even include leaking as an issue. Will have to wait and see if I get any response from the trouble ticket I created on the Arctic Cove website.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RPinAZ Very Weak Product
This cooler was less expensive, but you get what you pay for. It doesn't even cool a 100 sq ft room. Spend the extra money and get a bigger one!
