Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Shellcollector The Worst Product I Have Ever Purchased
I had this shipped to my home 2 years ago. The first problem was there was no remote. LG supplied a new one, but it took 6 weeks. The conditioner was noisy from the beginning but did a good job. I used it everyday the 1st summer (on during the day, off at night). This summer I have run it probably 1-2 dqys/week,a total of 200 hours. Yesterday it suddenly sounded like an airplane taking off and you could tell something was COMPLETELY shattered inside. Since it was dead to me, I pulled it apart to see what happened. The warm air blower chamber was cracked right through and the fan was missing several rungs. The only time the thing was ever moved was the day I sat it up. Real piece you know what
. Going out tomorrow to PAY to DUMP this and get another AND IT WON'T be an LG!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LadyLodi Quality Item that lasts when you follow yearly maintenance
Just as you keep the coils clean in a central air system, you must do the same with this unit. Especially if you live in a dry area like California. It's very easy to do. Simply remove the outer case and you can see the evap and condenser coils. Vaccuum them off at least yearly, being careful not to bend the fins. I don't know if this would void any warranty however. Or you can always pay for an ac guy to come clean your ac.
People don't realize that the reason portable and window ac's work great the first year, and then decline in cooling capacity, is when those coils are clogged with dust and dirt, it makes it hard for the unit to work as intended.
So this is a great unit. Cheaper than a comparable window unit if you buy a factory refurb. one also.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ladyslippers LG air conditioner is not reliable, poor design
Not sure if this is the exact model, but it looks like the one I have. Purchased one which didn't last long, so I thought I would give it another chance. It's working BUT you have to drain them often... and IT'S NOT EASY. The ducts/vents come loose and hard to put back in when draining or if you have to move it, finally had to duct tape it to keep it in place.
It's a 2 man job to drain, one person has to hold up, than tilt the HEAVY air conditioner while the other person holds a pan to catch the water. If you try to drain this by yourself, there's not much room between the drain and floor so you'll need a shallow pan and it will probably spill onto your floor. Also be careful that it doesn't fall over on you and crush your skull if you drain it by yourself

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MLROSS Does the job great !
Beats turning on the AC for the entire house. For some reason, certain rooms in our home just don't get very cool when the house AC is used. When only the rooms we need to occupy need to be cooled down you can roll this unit to where you need it and it does a great job. I have 2 and couldn't be more pleased. Not that quiet but not so noisy that you can't watch TV or listen to music. Love that I can use this unit in my sliding windows. Easy to store. Only downside is emptying the unit if you're using the dehumidifier feature...which I don't usually use. So if you're just using it for cooling you won't have to empty it for a very long time. It's on casters so you can just roll it around and it does have handels on each side for when you need to lift it. A good buy for the money.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Chris Good basic unit
This is a well made unit that works up to a point. When it gets too hot, the unit will cycle on and off and will not cool. If you are trying to cool a bedroom this unit will work great. If you have a room that gets hot at 3 in the afternoon, this unit will not work well for you.
Also, the unit generates a lot of heat so venting is very important. If you don't have a window you can vent out of, you can vent up into your attic by using 5" insulated ac duct. I've shown some pictures.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kevin This unit is absolute JUNK
We purchase (2) of these units for (2) small 10' x 14' offices expecting them to last at least a few years, NOT!!
(1) unit failed in 1.2 years and the other failed in 1.6 years and after what would have been the cost for a service call, parts & labor - I might as well buy a new one. I will not purchase another LG air conditioner ever again.
AVOID THESE UNITS

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by chuck I too purchased one of these, do not buy
The first year operated generally okay. Toward the end of a year, it began to make noise kicking off and on. This year after three days of use, it stopped. nothing. service cost would be more than unit is worth, LG's online 'trouble shooting' = plug in, turn on, repeat. if it doesn't work set up repair service....
