Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by charlottephotographer Great purchase
Unit works as described- was placed in a 20x20 un- insulated garage- to cool the area for our dogs and also doubles as a photography studio- weather had been in the high 90's, easily brought the area down to 75-78- when allowed to run overnight to precondition the area, easily held the temp at 72-75 when outside was 99.
No issues yet-
I permanently installed an exhaust port on the wall. the air from this hose is very hot- its important that you seal the exhaust area so no hot air gets pulled back in the room.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MassholeJP Problems from the get go
Bought this from the positive reviews, hoping that that mine wouldnt' be one of the ones with all of the issues. Something must have happened during shipping. We got one with a cracked connector, snapped valve, scratched front. Was able to set it up fine, but then it leaked allllllll over my hardwood floors. The only way I could run it was if I put cookie sheets underneath it to catch the water. Called HD, they said to return it no problem. Called Haeirer and they were useles, tell me to empty things that this model didn't even have. Clearly the condenser isn't working. Now I have to lug this thing back to HD and wait in the 90+ degree weather a week for a new one. Not thrilled to say the least.
On the plus side it did an ok job at cooling and the noise wasn't too bad. Looks nice too.

Assembly & start up was easy. It was larger (deeper) than I anticipated. The photo made it look quite thin so the location I had planned on, didn't work and I had a hard time finding a place for it. Also, I did not realize I was expected to screw the exit panel onto the window. My windows are new so I'm trying to prop the exit panel without screwing it & wrecking my new windows. It does cool fairly well. However, the unit gets very warm and is constantly turning on and off, not maintaining a constant sound. We found we are constantly turning the TV volume up and down as the unit is turning on/off while working. Our old window unit was quieter.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KeepingCool777 Haier is the best portable air conditioner
Haier is the best portable air conditioner to use. We have been using Haier for 10 years now and I wouldn't use any other brand of portable air conditioner we have been totally satisfied with this product which lasts about 3 years. I highly recommend Haier portable air conditioners.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Peggyb Great product
We do not have central air and id not want the expense of putting the system in as we have hot water heat thus no air vents. This product was received within a few days of ordering. Very easy to put the vent in the window, just plug in and turn. It is quiet and very efficient cooling our living, dining and kitchen area very quickly. Has remote control and is on castors for easy moving.....It's a great buy.....Only question we have is "Why did we wait so long to buy it?"

This air conditioner does a great job cooling down our medium sized room. I use a box fan to distribute the air out into other rooms. While I think the unit does a great job cooling, I wish it were quieter. I, personally, cannot sleep with this unit on because of the noise it makes when the thermostat kicks it into a higher or lower gear to regulate the temperature. That noise jolts me awake. But, i understand that it'll never be as quiet as central air.
I do enjoy the timer that can be set to turn on after a few hours, or run for a few hours. In the future, I would purchase a unit that could be programmed to run at a particular time of day for a set number of hours.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Consumer Unit is twice the size- width and depth with hose attachment
The unit is huge. The depth and width measurement is deceptive, there is a connecting piece as well as a hose attachment, the closest the AC can get to a wall is 25" from the front, double the width to get an accurate size. The hose attachment gets hot when running the AC. Think cooling down a room while the oven is on. My less expensive window unit with 10,000 BTU in a larger room works better than this. After trying this AC in two rooms, I have to exchange it for a window unit that uses less space and cools down a room while not heating it up at the same time.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CeceliaAnn Did not cool the room
Easy to install and operate, but definitely did not cool the room. I measured the appropriate BTUs based on square foot, so I know it was the right match for the room size. Unfortunately, it never cooled the room below 80 degrees.
