Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2Humid Good product
While I have only had this product less than two months, it has performed well. When I read reviews for these types of products, I'm more interested in longevity, so this review is based more on a nearly identical unit I have been running for almost 5 years. It is the same manufacturer, identical in appearance and BTUs but does not have the heat function that this one does. It still performs flawlessly and is the reason I bought this second unit for my garage. The original unit helps cool an upstairs room during the hot Texas summers.
I really like that you do not have to hook up a drain when in A/C mode.

I bought this for our enclosed Lanai. I was concerned about needing to drain the pan. There is no clear instructions on setting up a drain line if needed. There is no instruction for dehumidification only mode. It is just a setting on the remote.
I have used it in A/C mode only, setting at 81-82 degrees. Just to keep Lanai bearable. It does a good job so far. Lanai is 11 X 24 western exposure with sliding windows all around and roller curtains.
I have not had to drain anything yet.
I drilled a 5 inch hole through the plastic window in line with the exhaust and am venting directly from the unit, no hose attached. I ran a foam weather-stripping around the pipe to help seal it against the window.
There was cosmetic shipping damage, not visible on the box. cracked plastic on rear of unit and hose fitting.

Wish i had never bought. The problem is it needs to blow air outside which creates a vacumn inside your house drawing hot air inside from where ever it can. So one room is cool and rest just get hotter. Big waste of $400. I dont recommend any stand alone "portable ac" and im sure any ac guys would agree

Pros: Overall great product. I have been zone heating my living room with an oil radiator for many years for comfort and savings. In order to keep my bedroom cooler than the rest of the house I decided to try zone cooling. Has been working great so far, the rest of the house is getting into the upper 70s with windows open, but my bedroom stays a cool 62. Not sure on the savings, but the comfort is great.
Cons: The window vent assembly is pretty flexible, but to get it to fit my modern 2004 windows it took a bit of creativity and engineering using the enclosed kit. Also, while the unit vents most of the moisture through the vent, with spring rains and the accompanying humidity I am emptying a few table spoons of water per day.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ray Works well except....
The heating and cooling is great for my tall ceilings and large space and it works fast, but there are other inconveniences that make this product frustrating. It is not supposed to need any water emptied unless using the dehumidifier yet every time I use the heat mode, I have to drain the water every hour or so, which completely defeats the purpose of leaving it on while sleeping or away from the house. It also beeps LOUDLY when it fills so if I am sleeping, I can hear it from upstairs just reminding me that it is not going to work for the remainder of the night unless I get up and drain it. Draining the water is also difficult because of it's weight and size. the plug is at the very bottom and if you tilt it any other direction than straight back it will leak onto the floor. Also, the side sliding window I have is too tall by about 9in for what they provided to block and seal the window opening for the hose. Not helpful for any windows that are slightly not typical.

In heat mode, be ready to empty the water pan several times day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mountainman So far so good.
Great price, fast shipping, it was 5.05 for shipping, came in about 5 days, ground. Wasn't impressed by reviews, decided to take the plunge. So far....works great, heater works, air gets cold, had to turn it off, got real cold. Remote is very handy. But....it's early. Hoping it's lasts a couple of years. So far I am happy with purchase.
