Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by soulssong Good air conditioner - loud though
This is a nice air conditioner. I purchased it for my bedroom, where I did not want a window AC. I insulated the exhaust vent and wrapped it in black material so it isn't obvious.
Pros: This unit has a nice looking design, is compact, easy to install, efficient, I live in Colorado so we it's mostly dry heat and I don't have to empty the water out of this unit often. We have another brand AC in another area of the house we have to drain daily. Easy to program. I like that it has a remote.
Cons: The fan is very loud and the low speed is not much different than the high speed. This may be a con for some.. it makes a noise when you turn it on, off and change any setting. Doesn't come with a drain tube. You're expected to purchase one yourself.

I bought this portable air conditioner because my apartment complex doesn't allow outside-the-window air conditioners. I felt the price was very reasonable. The way that my apartment is designed, I had to install the AC in the kitchen window to cool down my living room. This wasn't a problem with the venting hose provided and I liked that I could wheel the AC to face my living room. (My con with the venting hose is that it pops out of the diffuser too easily, so I had to tape it together). The rest of the installation went smoothly. This AC cools down the room quickly, but it is a bit loud.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NewYorkGirl10036 Not as great as expected...
Does NOT cool room below 80 degrees in the middle of summer in NY. We bought 2 units in 2 different sizes, a large for the living room and small one for the bedroom for our small apartment. Both units worked GREAT in the month of May, when the outside temperature was 80, they were able to cool the room to 73. That was the absolute coldest temperature it will ever get in the room. Now that its 95 every day, forget about feeling cool and the loud noise takes a lot of getting used to. Its too bad because these were SO easy to install. Hopefully Home Depot still takes these back for refunds.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BonBon Keeping me cool
The LG portable air conditioner I purchased was very easy to install. It's noisy, but I got used to it. The only downside is that while the description indicates it is self-evaporator, it isn't. Depending how much you use it, the drain pan has to be emptied. The problem with this is that the drain plug is at the very bottom of the a/c and there is very little room to get a pan or bowl under it to drain the water. I solved this by putting the a/c on a 6" box. Now it's easily drained

this product is not portable as described. it must vent from a window which makes it unable to move from room to room. I will be returning it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LOU Perfect for vertical sliding windows !
This LG unit is doing a terrific job cooling the living room/ kitchen area. The window hose mount was perfect for our windows and I would say almost any window. Very happy to have purchased this unit before all the 90 degrees days. We picked the LG unit because my son has the same one working well for a number of years. Emptying the water tray is not easy but I would guess this is the same with all portables. The Home Depot employees were very helpful.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tess1 Too Loud
I thought this unit would be perfect for my bedroom, I had always wanted a floor unit instead of the window units, the set up was really easy to understand and easy to install. The problems with it are #1 it sounds like a plain taking off....#2 There is not much difference between the 'High' and 'Low' with the noise and air flow seem to be the same,#3 The drain is placed too low and I had to put it on a platform and unhook the air vent to drain. Maybe in a larger room it might be ok, but not for a bedroom unit. It is almost so loud that I really feel it would cause hearing loss used for a long period of time. I know the return policy for Home Depot and may have to return the unit, maybe go for another window unit, I just dont know what to do at this point. #4 it does not seem to cool enough and still seems warm in the small room its in. At this point I may have to invest in a European style unit as we do not have a Venting system in this old house.

We're on our 3rd year with this unit and use it every summer. It does work really well for our large living room. Only complaints are the loud noise requires us to turn the tv really loud (but all ac's are loud I guess) and the vent hose radiates quite a bit of heat (we throw a towel over the hose to better insulate it). Today the water sensor stopped letting me know when it is full so the unit started spitting out mist with the cool air, but seems to be working fine now after draining it..
