Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nerveous about purchase, time will tellif it will be satisfactory. I wouldn't recommend purchaseing this product unless Gree USA makes it easier to obtain information regarding ordering and obtaining parts. Also, how to receive technical support help is lacking. It took a lot of research to discover a tech support phone number. I don't understand why a company would appear to not care about their customers once the products have been sold. Good product quality and value aren't important if, when it has a malfunction, getting repair parts is difficuld because the company doesn't provide useful ordering information. This is a company that needs to learn how to communicate and provide decent customer service. August 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exceeded my expectations I bought this 12000 BTU mini split ductless Gree AC with the expectation of cooling a new room addition I had built. I must say as if now this purchase was the best money I ever spent. Being in Arizona with days already 112 to 114 degrees it has operated flawlessly. I would recommend this AC to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by unit install i install similar top of the line units 3-4 times$$$. Gree/dakien make most. wonderful little 1 ton. if your not knowlegable on refrigeration principles. do some research. witness yourself that installer must pull and hold a deep vacuume(300 or lower) microns. 9 out of 10 of these unit failures is improper refrigeration practices.
