Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Paul001 Cools Great With The Right Cooler Pads
Out of the box this cooler hardly cooled the air. But after I installed two thicknesses of a green, honeycomb type cooler pad I found at Home Depot, the cooler is now putting out a strong blast of refreshing 69 degree air on a 90 degree day with 28% humidity. That's real good cooling in my opinion for a low cost unit like this. Also the inside of the unit is very simple and idiotproof for an amateur to work on

As delivered, pump was not connected to tubing. Will spray water out of the rear of the unit at random times.

Watch out!! Filled it up just like the directions said, plugged it in, turned it on and I had a shower all over my carpet. Not just a tiny shower, 3 gallons of water on my carpet! I'll be taking it back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by graphiccork how sweet it is
this unit is perfect for our Arizona days and evenings, what is really great is you can take it outside for the patio,or when working the garden. It helps make the days bearable. When it is 115 out and the air is almost always dry it cools it down to 80 how is that for a portable unit... It is a must for those who live in AZ....

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by coolerhouse Some flaws but good overall
I bought this product after reading the reviews, so I knew I was going to run into some trouble with how this cooler ran. The two main problems for me were the water squirting out of the back and the apparent leak from the bottom. The squirting water was caused by the tube cap of the tube not being permanently fixed to the tube. I just shoved a little piece of plastic in there and I also shoved the padding straight up against the back grill, so the water would flow down it instead of the grill.
But for the leak from the bottom, it was caused by the awful design of the reservoir. It is very easy to accidentally dump a whole lot of water in the bottom of the cooler, but not the reservoir. After filling it with a watering can, it stopped leaking.
Other than those little fixes, its been cooling the air enough for me.

After I got this unit I attached a thermometer to the front of it. Outside air was 83 degrees. The Cooler put out air that was 78 degrees. So it barely cooled the air. Outside humidity was low (25%) at the time. I checked the cooler pad and it was wet so that was not the problem.
All I can do now it perhaps try to install an Aspen pad to see if it might improve the cooling performance. Cooler fan is rather noisy so I doubt I could sleep at night with the cooler operating

I had no problem with water spraying out of it. However it doesn't blow any cool air. I followed the advice of the other reviewer and replace the paper thin aspen pad (which was bone dry when I took it out!) with a blue foam pad. It is now blowing cool air. Let's see how it measures up to tomorrow's heat.
