Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by David Just be warned: very loud
I recommend if you're going to get this unit to find a display or ask to test the floor model to listen to it. I wanna believe I got a bad apple before I returned it, because its low and high fan speed setting were equal in loudness and air output. It's LOUD. I can vouch that Home Depot offers quieter models like Honeywell. But don't only take my word. Bear in mind I don't expect whisper quiet so when I say it's loud...it's loud.
I'm recommending this unit only for use outside of the bedroom and living room where you'd wanna hear yourself think.

Only drawback is the plastic vent for window, a little flimsy... Only had it a month but Cools well so far.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Legibryn I normally am impressed by LG
Got this product because I am a big fan of LG products, but must say I am very disappointed in this 10k BTU portable air conditioner. First off it is very very loud for a 300 SqFt room. Second had a buddy test the BTU's it as actually putting out on full setting and it was averaging around 6.500 BTU, this could be a flaw in the one I have but nevertheless it should have been tested. This unit struggled to keep my little 100 Sq ft room 70 degrees. Also the temp gauge on mined was wildly off when it was not running, 3-5 degrees off the actual room temp. I did insulate the flexible duct and the window so it would not produce as much heat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by M&J Enjoying a cooler house!
We live in Western Washington State, where very few houses have air conditioning... it's rarely needed, but this summer has been much warmer than in the past! We purchased our LG portable air conditioning unit on the spur of the moment and have been thoroughly enjoying a much cooler living space with it.
The unit was easy to install, and came with everything needed. When on, it cools the air in our open-concept living/dining/kitchen area quickly and efficiently. We are pleased with its' portability and how easy it will be to pack it up to store for the cooler months. The only complaint we have with the unit is that the fan is very noisy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dundee The air conditioner was easy to install, works very well is pleasant to look at.
One of the reasons we wanted a portable air conditioner was so we could pull all parts inside the house and close and lock the windows whenever we want to which lessens the possibility of illegal entry when we are not home.. Also, from outside the house the small opening flush with the window looks much nicer than a square box air conditioner hanging out the window. Lastly, we could use it in another room if we need or want to and it would be quite easy to move. This air conditioner gives a lot more options for the direction of the air flow than the window one would. As well as adjusting the louvres you can turn the whole unit. The wheels work well even on carpet. The noise level is what I would expect, but not objectionable. We just have to turn the TV up a little louder.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LaRene Amazing portable air conditioner
I bought this to use in a hot bedroom I was painting in August. It kept me very cool as I worked. I am looking forward to using it next summer.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dissappointed Not for humid basement or conditions
Fair price. Cools about 250 sq ft well enough. It's loud. You can't shift air flow left to right, only up and down. This unit is not for basements or other humid conditions. I was very excited about the evaporation system and not having to empty pans or try to figure out how to get run-off water to drain UP to a sink or window. Then after more than an hour of figuring out how to vent it out through a basement casement window...I woke up the next morning to a saturated carpet in front of the unit...the water that doesn't evaporate gets sprayed out the front with the cool air. Now will have to run dehumidifier half the time to remove enough moisture from the air then run the AC the other half the time to cool off the room. NOT what I was expecting.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ChrisBoston Fantastic air conditioner
The LG 10,000 BTU Portable air conditioner is fantastic. I purchased it at the start of summer and use it to cool a large room on the third floor of my house, which gets extra hot since there are only two small windows to let air inside. It's easy to setup and I had no trouble getting the ventilation to the awkwardly placed window. Very easy to use and set auto tuners for specific temperatures and modes. Highly recommend...
