Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Esme JUNK!! Worst purchase EVER!
As a person that has owned several portable AC's I can confidently tell you that this is an absolute piece of junk! Doesn't cool AT ALL, compressor shuts off within 3 minutes of starting. I had this thing running at 60 degrees for 48 hours in a 300 sq ft room in the middle of a heatwave. The room right now is 93 degrees!! Basically this thing works like a low-power fan (yes, I understand there is an actual fan setting, this is not what I mean). I even insulated the hose thinking perhaps too much heat was escaping because it was absolutely blowing my mind that something like this could seriously allow a room to get to get to 93 degrees while set at 60! My poor dogs had to be draped in frozen towels. Horrible! Read the reviews on other sites, you will see the same thing! Wish I knew this before I purchased it in-store!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kristina Heat not worth extra money
Got this unit last summer, worked fine as air conditioner. BUT - heater not worth the extra cost. Runs for very short time and stops because water tank is full. Starts beeping and will not stop! Can only be emptied by touching two buttons, can not be done automatically and humidifier can not be turned off. Will not run all night!!!!! Colder the weather the worse it works. AND - is very loud. Will not get another one.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by usac56 DO NOT BUY THIS UNIT
The unit has inherent problems with the controls. The vent that hot or cold air comes out is 3" by 6". Will not heat 100 sq. feet. Waiting to see if the cold air works, but doubt it will due to the very small opening.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jess Life savers!
Having a 1400 sq ft home with 2 children and no central air we needed something and window units were not cutting it. We got 2 of these portable ACs and have been happy with them since day one! The heat works amazing in it and the cold air sometimes I need to turn off because it gets so cold. Sometimes the fan is just enough. This is such a powerful little system. It's heavy and so thankful it's on wheels. The unit beeps and has a little icon when the tank needs to be emptied. If I could change anything about the units it would be that drain tank. I wish it was a little bit high to make it easier to drain! I've found a folded up towel under the hole works best!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by draftcad WORKS GREAT ON HEAT
using it in spare room (unheated or cooled). Can't wait to see how it works in summer. Quiet, thermostat works great. No problems at all during recent cold spell.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 1234 NOTHING BUT PAIN
As we had waited several weeks for our online order to arrive, we decided to attempt to work with LG directly when our machine did not work coming out of the box. Big mistake!! After multiple telephone calls to customer service, LG eventually admitted they had no one in the area willing to fix the thing. We are still without air conditioning and are awaiting return instructions and hopefully some day a functioning machine. Sale or no sale, this product was not worth the money.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by sacornel Works Well, but expensive
600 dollars for this air conditioner is too expensive. I've seen comparable models at almost half the price. I should have done a little more shopping around before making this purchase. Luckily HD has a liberal return policy. The unit does a good job of cooling, but I returned it (because of the price) before using the heat function. The noise factor was another reason I didn't care for it. I had to turn it off because I couldn't sleep with it running. If you buy this model, make sure you take out the owners manual and other items that have been stored inside the exhaust hose. I mistakenly left them in there and the unit didn't work properly at first.

I have had this unit for 4 months and the comppressor has gone bad. Started over heating and shutting off. At first it would run for 15 minutes before over heating, now overheats after 5 minutes. Not worth fixing
