I had an 8,000 BTU unit that quit immediately after the warranty expired at my home last year. I rolled the dice and purchased a 10,150 BTU unit last year for my office and it served us well for the summer. When I re-installed it for this summer, it would not blow cold air - just makes a lot of noise. I suppose I should have read the reviews, but c'est la vie - Moderately expensive lesson learned.

My AC unit broke after one summer. It just stopped turning on. When I called for service the guy finally showed up after cancelling, rescheduling, and then not coming to the rescheduled appointment. On the third attempt he comes without notifying me, takes one look at the unit and says it'll cost me $350 to fix. Oh and it's $108 for my "Professional diagnosis". I feel like I was robbed and violated in my own home. Absolutely the last time I will be using ANY GE product.

Just bought this, but talk about loud! I first turned it on and thought "Geez that's loud, I'll probably have to keep it on low" - then realized it already was on low. And it is not vibrations, as a GE rep. replied to another post. It is just an extremely loud fan. Also, every time the unit is turned on, it automatically starts in energy-saver mode, which I find annoying. I left it in that mode yesterday, and it shut off when the unit said the room was 68. A thermostat in the room said it was 77, and it certainly felt like the thermostat was correct. This is going back.

The unit was easy to install on my existing platform. It runs quietly and efficiently. The remote control
is really convenient and simple to use.

2. Cooling is pathetic. 77F in, 60F out
3. Sounds like there's a dying cricket in there somewhere.
4. Getting the battery in the remote is a challenge worthy of an astronaut.
5. Remote worked ONCE. Then stopped working. From 3 ft away.
6. There is LITTLE difference between the 3 speeds. Low is LOUD.
7. Did I mention it was loud?
8. I find it hard to believe that engineers actually desgined this thing.....and harder to believe that they actually built it........and that they're selling it is unbelievable.
9. It's going back to the store. Gonna try an LG next.

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 3.0 out of 5.0 by Fredda noisy and sluggishly responsive to lowering and raising the temperature
this model only has one temperature reading in the display, that of the current temperature in the room. It does not show what the users desired temperature is.The only way to determine that is to raise or lower the temperature then the desired temperature flashes for one micro second. In fact the numbers on the temperature display keep changing making it very confusing. Also it takes a really long time to adjust the temperature in the room, at least 30 minutes until it gets warmer after having set it too high. It is also extremely noisy.
