I live in an older building on the 3rd floor in Minnesota that does not have A/C. I bought this unit since the lip on the window is uneven and could potentially cause a window unit to fall out. It has currently been running for 13 hours and it has only cooled the apartment down from 93 degrees to 85/84 and cannot go any lower. The current temperature outside is a cooler 78 degrees than what the unit can get in the apartment at 84 degrees. The dimensions of the room are 14 feet by 12 feet (168 square feet) with a 10 foot ceiling. I am very disappointed that this unit cannot cool a room half the size it is advertised to be able to handle.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Beh66 Smart purchase
This was a good purchase for me. I have a cape style home so the upstairs gets very hot in the summer. Rather than purchase two window air conditioners, one for each bedroom, I opted for this portable unit which allows me to cool down one room and then simply push it across the hall to the other one and I don't have the chore of putting it in and out every season. The only issue is that the drain in the back is so low to the base that it has to be pushed to the edge of the stairs so that I can place a container on the step below to drain it. Otherwise, it would receive 5 stars.

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. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mgcharlie Took 24 hours to cool
It was very easy to set up, and we are excited to see it work as our AC had gone out that day. Five hours later it had cooled 2° and there was a lot of heat coming out of the back of the machine back into the room. I took duck taped and wrapped it around the tubing that connected to the machine and the window. It then started to cool but took 12 hours to get from 85 to 75 degrees.

Requires a window and has to be drained every other day during humid periods. Heavy. Takes up floor space. Expensive. Doesn't cool very well. Not ideal for carrying up/downstairs to different rooms. I was lifting it into the tub to drain. I returned it and went for a window unit, which cools much better and doesn't have all the fuss.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mnboathouseguy not good, ended up returning
My neighbor had a 10,000 btu air conditioner window unit in his cabin that is about the same size as mine. Decided I didn't want to cut a hole and went with one of these. Seemed to put out far less cold air, was very noisy and ended up returning it. I could live with the noise if it would have cooled the place down but it hardly seemed to make a dent.
Another thing I'm guessing it not a problem unique to this unit is that the heat exhaust hose is uninsulated and very cheap, guessing at least 20% of the heat energy removed by the unit is going back in to the dwelling due to the thin uninsulated design of the hose. If I had kept the unit I'm guessing this would not have lasted more than 1 season, also the window adapter seemed to be just the wrong size for every window in the place and didn't seal very well, I could see around the window to hose fitting also which I had to duct tape over to try and seal it.
I wish I would have read the reviews first, it was a purchased I rushed into and unfortunately did not work out.
On the plus side it seemed well bit and is nice looking as far as ac's go but did not get the job done. Would not recommend it though

Very pleased with this item. It has been a real benefit in the past few weeks of terrible heat.

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.
