Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CoolerThanBefore It's keeping me cool
The air conditioner was extremely easy to install. I had it working within minutes from taking it out of the packaging. The only issue I have is that I have it in my home office and it is a 10x10 bedroom with a vaulted ceiling. When the temps got above 100 degrees outside, this little guy could not cool the room down below 78 degrees. While that was enough when I had the fan blowing directly at me, I don't know if it will be enough to keep my computers cool if I get more servers. Thankfully, it does not get that hot in my area that often.

Please know I thought long and hard about this purchase. I find hot weather unbearable, and all my life had window air conditioners. People may be surprised to know that New Hampshire has many hot summer days with high humidity. Very uncomfortable. My bedroom has only one window, so when I installed the air conditioner for the summer... my one window became unusable. When we had a cool evening, I would either drag the very heavy unit out of the window to be able to get fresh air, or just leave it and suffer.
When it was finally time to replace the old a.c.... I started to look into these portable units. Many reviews were negative...some positive, but I'm writing to say that I am thrilled with this unit. My bedroom is a good size, about 35X25 and this unit cools it very well. Perhaps not as quickly as my window unit, but very well. To be able to still enjoy the view and be able to easily open the widow at any time is fantastic.
As far as cons...it is a bit loud, but not a problem. It has very bright lighted controls, they all go off after a moment except one...and it is bright enough to light the room! I just took a little sticky note and covered it, and that solved it.
Also want to say that when I don't need the a.c....I open the window and just use the fan setting. It moves air around the room very nicely.
I love this thing, and if you purchase one, I hope you will too.

The air conditioner cools very well in the room I have it in. Had a little problem at first installing
the hose but did get it done.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by craigmca OK if you really don't want or can't have a window unit.
I've used a window cooler in the past but didn't like the looks of it hanging out the window so decided to try this portable cooler. I am using this cooler in my home office that is just 100 square feet. It is overpowered for that small space but is the least power I could find for a portable cooler. It is noisy when the compressor is on but is not on much to keep my little office cool. It certainly takes up a lot of space in my small office but that, and the noise, is the sacrifice I make for appearances. I'm even going to vent it through the wall on the non-street side of the room (corner of house) so that even the vent isn't visible in the window from the street. The cooler blows so much air out the vent that it really creates a strong negative pressure in the room. So much so that, if I shut the door tight, it can't get enough air and shuts the compressor and exterior venting off. I have to leave the door loose so that it can suck open to allow the amount of air the cooling function needs. Bottom line: If my window wasn't on the street side of the house I would definitely stay with a window unit. Ah, the sacrifices we make for vain appearances!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fairfielder001 Successful installation, Honeywell MN10CESWW a/c
This unit was easy to unpack (though somewhat hefty) and to connect to the window space. The remote control is straightforward as long as you realize that when you push a button and the temperature starts blinking, it indicates the temperature you're setting. You can then change it by pressing the arrow up or down buttons. Then it stops flashing and displays in solid numbers the actual temperature. This a/c is cooling a room about 13 x 15' with a high ceiling, with warm air exiting a skylight with a ceiling fan. Some cool air "sinks" out of the room, down a short corridor into other rooms, and a small oscillating fan does a good job helping cool one secondary room using some of the cooled air. Given what we've read, it's a good idea to turn off this unit after a number of hours so that it doesn't become overtaxed.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by wonk Poorly designed
We had to buy this AC unit because we could not have a window unit. The worst part of the unit is the hose and connection to the window for ventilation. Since how well the exhaust hose functions affects the efficiency of this unit, and its ability to cool, one would think it would be carefully designed with rubber seals and an easily adjustable window mount. Instead, you have a cheap plastic hose that has no seal at the connection to the unit or at the window. The mount at the window is cheap and requires much manipulation and towels to make sure the unit is exhausting properly. When I bought this it was over $500. For that price I expect much more.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BUNNY LOVE this air conditioner!
This air conditioner performs as stated. Packaging was amazing. It WAS quick to un-box and install. It has a much shorter "standing" period required prior to turning the unit on - 20 min. It is truly portable since it does not screw into the window & casing. The casters are perfect to move this unit easily across carpeting. The unit is lightweight for it's size. Cools well enough for a small bedroom which is what I intended it to be used for. Although the EER was quite high - which should be good - I gasped when my electric bill came in for a month of heavy use. This is the only reason I did not give it 5 stars. I still love this unit, the way it operates and do not regret it's purchase - even with the electric bill. VERY important - it does not drip any water and I still have not had to empty it once.
