Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Steven Doesnt cool well
My ac went out so I bought this unit to use until it is fixed. I have it running in a bedroom approximately 280sqft and vented out the window. The door to the bedroom is closed and I put a towel to help prevent warm air from rest of house coming in from crack under door. When I turned the unit on, it stated 94 degrees, which cant be true, my thermostat says 85. After running in cool mode for 3 hours the temp dropped from 94 on the unit to 87. It feels like cold air coming out, but doesnt cool down the room to anything comfortable. It has been running 20 hours now and still sitting around 86-87. Save your money and get a window unit.

We have two portable room air conditioners going in our condo at any given time. Have always used LG products. This one, however, didn't quite measure up to your usual quality. Just replaced it w/a 12,000 BTU. Hopefully, it won't have to work quite as hard. I should add that we added another one identical to this one in December, 2015. It's doing well and we are pleased with the performance.

Our AC went out on a 108 degree day in Phoenix. So I bought this to get us by until it was fixed (fixed now). It puts out nice cold air and as long as we were sitting in the stream of air we were very comfortable.
It didn't cool the house. We didn't expect it to. Just to give us some relief until the AC was fixed.
And that it did very well. It kept things livable for us and our pets on what would otherwise have been a very bad day in Phoenix.
I can't speak to the long term quality of this unit since we've only used it for a day.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NewYorkGirl10538 Powerful device but have to empty water tank daily
We tried this portable AC for a few weeks and its very powerful and easy to install, HOWEVER, because it does not hang out the window, the water condensation drips into a tank and you have to empty it almost every day (the device shuts off when the tank is full). It is very humid in NY and to empty the water tank every day is a major annoyance. We could buy a pump and tube to drain out the window but we already spent over $300 for this device and do not want additional costs or hassle. The device also does not have an energy saver option, only a timer feature if you want to put it on in the future.

LP1014WNR. I used this unit in July and August 2015 and June of 2016. It worked well for those three months but now blows hot air. We got two summers out of the prior unit until the compressor froze up. We will not be purchasing a third unit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dan **** LG 10,000 BTU Portable air condition - good, but there's a trick to installing it right
The unit works well and cools down the room strongly IF you don't let any heat exhaust seep back in. The first few days it didn't seem to work well, and I thought the unit wasn't good, but once I reinstalled the exhaust frame in the window properly, it worked fine and chilled the room. Also make sure you have the right capacity: 12,000 BTU for large rooms, 10,000BTU for mid-sized rooms, and 8,000 BTU for only the smallest rooms.
I had to use a couple of "L" brackets and flat brackets to keep the exhaust frame tightly in place against the window, and duct tape to seal up any hot exhaust leakage. NOW it works well and as intended.
I set it on "Cool," "High Fan" and to 72 degrees, and it cools it to 72 degree, and I live in Las Vegas.

The unit was purchased during a time when our HVAC went out and was replaced. During the A/C outage (which took a solid week), it ran like a champ, maybe not cooling the entire house - but cooling the downstairs very comfortably. I'm planing to put it to work in the garage to cool & dehumidify my workshop.

Not worth the money spent. Does not keep the room cool. Lowest it kept the room was 89 degrees. Do not buy!!
