350 CFM 3-Speed Portable Evaporative Cooler for 175 sq. ft. is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't do what I expected I didn't want a window a/c unit & thought the swamp cooler would be good because we could also roll it into different rooms. I had read a few good reviews among many bad reviews. I was determined to be one of the people who loved this item - which seemed to be because they used it properly. It was pointed out that people who hated it probably weren't using it properly (i.e., didn't have a window/door open for cross-breeze or fresh air). We put it in our daughter's room during the heatwave. It may have dropped them temp a degree or so, but that was offset by the tremendous increase in humidity. Like other reviewers said, it just turned the room into a steaming hot jungle. Granted, it was nice cold air blowing out if you literally stood in front of the unit or placed your hand up to it, but it did NOT cool the room down at all. And we tried adjusting the settings different ways, etc. - nothing worked. I ended up returning it and just buying a bunch of fans.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Price, strong airflow, cools too small of a space I bought this product last year. Most of my family hangs out in the livingroom, so having the main A/C on was a huge waste of energy. This product is quite loud, so for it being a small room cooler, it doesn't make much sense for it to be so loud. If you can get used to that, which we did, it is a great cooler. We keep it next to the open door for increased airflow. It does cool the room quite a bit, and the remote works very well. This is a great product, but read below on some cleaning problems. My problems could have been easier if the Kuulaire provided better cleaning tips. Read below for some of my mishaps. This, for its price, compared to others; is still an amazing portable evap cooler. The biggest downside, that I found after the first year, is the cleaning. Because I have hard water, there was quite a lot of mineral build up. This could have been fixed at the end of the hot season to add a bit of CLR to the reservoir. However, cleaning took about 2 hours. I had to take the whole system apart to get to the hard to reach places. Again, if the company released better tips to keep the system clean, this could have saved more time. I would still recommend this product, but not to lazy people. I'm not lazy, so I don't mind cleaning things each year to make sure my products last a long time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not up to expatiation Living in Arizona, swamp coolers work very well. This one leaves a lot to be desired. Starts out working well when the humidity is below 20%, but the unit puts a lot of water vapor in the air quickly raising relative humidity up to the level of New Orleans on a hot humid day. Swamp coolers do not work well above 30%. There is a large gap between the fan and the outlet that lets the air recirculate the air within the unit. The only way that I got the unit to work was to put it in a window where it could draw in the low humidity air from outside. Sealed all around it with duct tape (I lived in the south for 40 years so I know the value of duct tape). The temperature then dropped 10 deg in the next hour (95 outside) after a few hours the temp held steady at 78 but the humidity went up to 47% and the unit quit cooling. The next day after the humidity level dropped in the room the unit worked until it was back up to 45% then quit again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Over priced humidifier! Did not cool my small bedroom very well. It worked better as a humidifier.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not work in san jose california my upstairs apartment gets pretty hot. 80-86 degrees all afternoon and night. Although the outside humidity may be 50-60 at night in the summer, the humidity inside my apartment is typically between 25 and 30 percent.. so I figured this unit may work..They sell these at the home depot's in San Jose so i gave it a try.. It only lowered the temperature about 3.8 degrees and raised the relative humidity inside the apt from 28 percent to 47 percent.. That means if i got a bigger cooler it would raise the humidity above 50 percent and probably only drop it another 2 degrees. I think in order for this thing to work both the inside and outside humidity's have to be really low. probably 10-20 percent. I gave it 2 stars cause this thing does work really well as a humidifier and it is dry in here but its not helping me with this apartments intense heat and I will be returning it today for a portable ac I would have loved for this thing to work well since it uses so little energy and no refrigerants but it didnt work well at all.Its hot and pretty dry in my apartment so i was expecting atleast an 8 degree difference when it spiked the humidity all the way from 28 to 47 percent but it only did 3.8 degrees.= nope , dosnt work for this area.. maybe in las vegas

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Made it hot and humid As a massage therapist, it's pretty important to me to have a cool room to work in. After the temperature in my room topped out at 78 degrees, I figured it was time to buy something to cool things down. The room that I work in has no windows and only one door, which has to be closed when I'm in a session, and I live in a very dry climate so I thought an evaporative cooler would be best. I ordered this on Friday night and it arrived on the following Monday. I had it filled with water and running as soon as I could get it unpacked. I turned it on to the recommended settings and then turned it up to high because the temp in my room was at 77.5 F. Within 15 minutes, the temp had risen to 78.5 F, and the humidity in the room was nearly suffocating. I thought I'd give it a chance to cool down... Maybe it took a while? But nope! Within 90 minutes, the room felt like a sauna, it was 80 F and the humidity was disgusting. I will be returning this total waste of money. tl;dr: DO NOT BUY THIS.
