Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 123456 Poor quality
I purchased 2 of these last July One arrived defective as it made a horrible noise when turned on. I took it back to the store and they made it an easy return for me. I decided not to get another one as I purchased a bigger one but I keep the second one that was ordered with this one. I used that other one couple of months or less than that. Once I was done with it, I empty the water compartment and stopped using it. As summer is back, I attempted to use it again, filled the water compartment, plugged to electrical power, turned it on and an it started to make an scary loud noise. It broke, and sound the same as the first one that arrived defective. I didn't even last a year and now I have to deal with contact the manufacture, pay shipping fees. I really hope that Home Depot review and consider consumer's feedbacks and demand their vendors to have better quality control of their products.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by shawn cools about 35 sqft
for proper cooling from an evaporative cooler you generally need 4xs the cfm compared to the sqft you are trying to cool you can get away with 3x with adequate cooling this unit would need at least 3-400cfm to cool 100sqft so this is a total piece of junk you are basically just buying a humidifier please people do the research find the formula for the space you need and stay happy

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tony There is bubble noise when the evaporate button is set to on
The product quality is kind of poor. This product sometimes makes noise when the evaporate button is set to on. When it made a bubble noise, I found there was bubble exited from the clear drain vinyl hose below the honeycomb cooling media. This problem dues to the hose is mounted on a curve. If you cut it shorter, the hose will be pointed straight down into the floor with out any bubble noise.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BBJ Good investment for greenhouse
No assembly required other than battery fro remote. Small, and easy to use. It is very quiet. I use it to keep some wheat-grass plantings in the greenhouse cool. (they are in a special enclosure). Only drawback is adding water every 12 hours, but adding water is simple. As summer heats up, I will see if this unit will have to be replaced with a larger cooler.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Secretary This Air Conditioner is more like a fan
We basically paid $150 for a $25 fan. It doesn't cool like an A/C.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Zanna Great item!
I live in a dry heat climate & have used a window air conditioner for the past several summers, however, it's heavy & hard to install & uninstall plus blocks my view from the bottom half of the window. I spend most of my day in my living/dining room area so decided to try this evaporative cooler and I'm so glad I made this purchase! It works fine for the area, is lightweight & easy to move around, so I can use it in the bedroom if I want. I'm amazed at the cooling power of this cooler; it keeps both of my rooms comfortable even in 90 degree heat, and even though the area is larger than 100 sq. feet. I'm very happy with this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BonsaiBaby Just what I needed!
I purchased this cooler for my 10 by 15 ft. glass hobby greenhouse. Even with curtains the greenhouse was getting to hot during this summer weather here in Colorado. The cooler keep it just the right temperature for my citrus trees, my figs, and my bonsai plants. It also probably increases the humidity too which the plants love. My only problem with it has been keeping the two water carrying tubes connected so that the water flows down through the filter. Also there are no instructions telling you to connect them before tuning the cooler on. I ran mine for a day before I noticed. Now I just leave the small screw off the back panel so I can be sure everything is running fine. I love the sound of the trickling water. A great product.
