Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by N0THappy website inaccurate
Website says this model not available at my location - that is wrong - when i went 3 days ago there were mountains of them boxed and ready to go so we bought it basically unseen. Got it unboxed and installed and so far am unimpressed. First, it looks flimsy - notice that the illustration is full front view, not angled like some others to show a 3/4 view and some of the venting on the side. The vents on this thing are huge enough to see right through the whole thing. Plus the front-view illustration shows a normal-looking dark area behind the front vent but, no, because it is so open from the outside all the light comes through and all I can see is the white styrofoam slab they put in there, i suppose, to keep whatever critters that can crawl in through the vent holes from getting into the house. I never thought I would live to see a GE product so poorly made.
IN ADDITION his is installed in a bedroom where it woke me up before 5 a.m. today with an alarm for no discernable reason - repeating BEEP BEEP BEEP, BEEP BEEP BEEP, BEEP BEEP BEEP and so on until I turned the darned thing off. IT'S THREE DAYS OLD for goodness sake - what does it have to be alarmed about - and why on earth would I have such a thing in my bedroom ... Not Happy

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Donna Don't buy it! You are throwing your money away!!!!
I bought two of these air conditioners for two rooms in my home. Only used them for three summers. That's only four months each year and only 8 hours per night. I put them in my windows this year and only one works. The other air conditioner's compressor broke and it doesn't blow cold air at all. I had it stored carefully in my basement in the winter and handled them both carefully. Don't buy GE products. They build their products so they break for no reason. I have two other LG air conditioners for at least eight years, same kind of use and they're still working. Now I have to go buy another air conditioner. It won't be a GE air conditioner!!! I am buying an LG air conditioner from Lowes!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by whythis4321 A very good purchase experiance
Quieter the other units I have at less BTU rating. The 6500 BTU unit not available :( Will know after the end of the season how effective. Lastly, Installation has more foam to seal unit, some glued to window. I modified this part of insulation to avoid having to destroy when removed at the end of season. The unit fit to my windows is typically poor, so this one did require a little more creativity sealing the gaps. If they ask at the end of the season, I will be able to report on actual performance.

It definitely does not perform as well as my 15yr old Panasonic 5800 BTU ac I bought it to replace. I have it in a 275SQ FT bedroom and it takes hours to cool it down at night and it comes on constantly, Thinking I should have bought the LG, good thing Home Depot has a good return policy, if it cant cool the room now what will happen when the first heat wave arrives.....

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JJ Terrible Customer service on defective a/c
After a few months (the in store return warranty expired by then) my a/c started to make a bad grinding noise (something in the motor...possibly the bearings). Since I purchased this for my dad, I wasn't aware of the problem until the 12 month warranty was almost up. (Note: the a/c was only used for about five months until it was put away for the winter.) After finding out about this problem when turning it on this spring, I called GE. Their solution was to send a refurbished unit with a very limited warranty...not seven months (balance of warranty on original defective a/c), not three months, not even a month, but only a couple weeks. By the time shipping would take place, at best the warranty would be a few days. Would you feel this is acceptable...? I certainainly do not.
My suggestion is to stay away from GE and purchase a different brand! By the way, GE's suggestion to appease me was to SELL me an extended warranty for big money.

Installed the unit with absolutely no problems. The manual supplied with the unit was excellent in the procedures of installation and operation.
The air conditioner works fine. I would buy another.
