Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HFW10027 Right size, easy to install, effective energy saver feature
My purchase of this air conditioner was determined by size, EER rating, and cost. Our old air conditioner was housed in a custom insulation panel. The GE was closest in overall size. It was easy to install and has worked well since it was purchased about a month ago, especially on the energy save setting.
Other window air conditioners we have had have cycled too frequently (in extreme cases, switching on for less than a minute, switching off, and repeating the short cycle). This particular model seems to operate in a 4 degree range, coming on when two degrees above the setting and going off at two degrees below. This gives the compressor time to reach peak effectiveness (my theory) and means the air conditioner switches on and off less often.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SKC718 Great Purchase
I purchased this unit for my living room, living in the valley can get pretty hot during summer time and this unit so far has done a great job at keeping us cool. The fan is very strong and makes very little noise. Very satisfied !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DenverHomeowner Relatively quiet with good cooling
I've never seen a window air conditioner that is whisper quiet, and this one certainly is not either. But compared to the Frigidaire 10000 BTU model I bought from another store and returned, this one is much more tolerable noise-wise. When this GE is set to its energy efficient mode with the fan set to Auto, it periodically stops blowing, firing back up when the thermostat decides it is time to run again. This not only helps with power consumption, but also helps minimize noise.
Cooling power is excellent for a unit this size. I use it in a 22x11 foot kitchen area that has an open doorway to another (not air conditioned) room, and the unit does just fine cooling the kitchen space. I sometimes use a box fan to blow cooled air into the adjoining room, and while that adjoining room doesn't get cold, the circulated air helps lower the temp in the the adjoining room and the A/C unit still keeps up. The unit also comes with a remote that has proven to be a handy addition.
It's a fairly priced unit that does it's job. I'd buy it again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by barkerman easy install, cold.
installs easily, gets cold fast, fairly average sound levels... Not whisper quiet but not a jet engine either. Only complaint is the cheapness of the directional vents. The unit is new, so nothing wrong yet - but I can see these suckers breaking in pretty short order if you move them a lot (or over time the cheap thin plastic getting brittle very quickly). If you're planning on mostly leaving them alone - not a big deal.

Very Good, gets cold fast.
I don't think you will ever need to put this A/C on high because on low it gets cold enough.
Delivery was very easy and no problems.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robgene Great AC Value with Easy Install
I bought this on the strength of the 12 reviewers that came before me. One thing they agreed on was the easy install and I'll add my vote for that. I'm 71 years old and I installed this bad boy in about one hour, and it took that long because I read the instructions carefully to make sure I got it right.
The real surprise was when the initial energize moment: INSTANT COLD! I was perspiring from the effort to complete the install and when that cold air hit me it almost knocked me down because of the shock. And that's a good thing. I was so blown away (figuratively speaking) I came close to doing a little dance. I did do a fist pump or two with the obligatory YES! YES!
Oh, and who needs whispers? I like a little AC noise. It speaks COOL to me and reminds me of a successful project.
The delivery men were fast, efficient and polite. Altogether this has been a very satisfying experience. It's too early to comment on reliability since it's only been running a couple of hours, but I'm optimistic this is going to be a win-win.
Needless to say, I highly recommend this AC for relatively small rooms. Got a gymnasium? Forget it.

I put the air conditioner in myself, not a problem.
