Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kevin Good Product For the Most Part
I agree with other reviewers that the smell was plastic-y & unpleasant at first. It works itself out eventually, so don't let it be a sticking point about buying this product. Also, the hatch where the water supply goes is a bit difficult to open.
Be sure to follow the directions about airflow, as it is very important that the cooler have plenty of fresh air to push, or it WILL just make the room hotter.
I live in Sparks, NV, so the temperature gets extreme in the summer. On 100 degree days, even with the cooler on its highest speed setting, it's still a bit warm. However, this goes a long way to making the room more bearable.

Even though it was larger than expected, but very light weight and moves easily it is very efficient in cooling my grand room of 300 sq ft. I had to turn it down to low because at high it was just too cold.

This portable evaporative cooler is wonderful. It works better than I expected. I have never even had to use it on anything but low. I am in a basement, but the temperatures have been 90 to 100 degrees lately. I would buy it again.

Very dissappointed. The equipment doesn't blow fresh air not even with ice in the water compartment , I used in a single room very small and a barely feel the air fresh. I have two more coolers and I know what I'm talking about.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marv Very easy to operate
We received unit just next to last day of our hot spell. Cooled well. Used it again 3 weeks later and still ran good. Osscilator works good. Cooled room down about10 to 12 degrees. Ice helped cool down even more.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sassy Not a great choice for someone with your laminate floors in every room.
Did not know that I would have to change 5 gallons of water every week or add ice to make it cooler. Probably a better choice for someone living in a dryer climate.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MO Works fine.
The item came fully assembled. The remote holder on the side of the unit is handy, but the remote itself is hard to read, as the background color on it is almost as dark as the lettering. Its easy to wheel around, as it has five wheels. The door which you open to fill it with water seems flimsy. I've read other reviews about the smell it emits. When I first "fired it up", I could see what they were talking about. I figured it was the smell coming from the filter. I sprayed one spray of "Haiku" (Avon scent), into the compartment where you put the ice, and the melting ice which dripped onto the filter brought the scent into the filter. I did this maybe the first two or three times I used it, and no longer have any smell problem. I love that the fan oscillates. It broadcasts the cool air back and forth across the room. It also has louvers which will direct the air up or down. It definitely can keep the air in my home in the low to mid 70's while it is in the high 90's outside. In fact, when it gets too cold in here, I just turn it off. It has 3 speeds, but I generally just keep it on low speed. I think that the more humidity in the air from the unit, the less efficiently it works, so I did purchase a de-humidifier, which I only turn on when it gets too humid in here. I don't have it on too often. The unit is somewhat noisy, but I would compare it with the sound of a fan, as that is what propels the cool air into the room. I just turn up the sound on the TV. If you think about it, even A.C. can be noisy. I have it in my "great room" (liv. room, dining and kitchen) (vaulted ceilings) and it does the job for me. Wouldn't want to get through the summer without it.
