Rated 4 out of 5Â by Sean So far, so good!
I've only had this air conditioner installed for a month, so I can't speak to its longevity which is, in my opinion, the most important criterion when buying an air conditioner. But what I can say is that this unit performs wonderfully in the heat, and it outputs cold air quickly. We're using to it cool a large indoor space, and it does that with plenty of gusto.
For us, this was quite an upgrade since we replaced a unit that was smelling musty and barely able to cool. (It was also twice as heavy and difficult to take out!) We did have some trouble in installation because the manual is not well-written and some of the screws look the same, but serve different functions. I've owned several LG appliances, and I've noticed that their directions can be difficult to understand because so many different models are represented in one manual.
Still, we're very happy with the purchase, and we're hoping for the best. Ask me in a year or two if it's still cooling - that will be the best measure of its performance!

Installed this a/c unit in May of 2013 and started using in June 2013. The thermostat switch stopped working within a week. When we turn it on it goes straight to 60 degrees and cranks ice cold air constantly to keep it at 60 degrees, and the control switch does not work at all. (Coincidentally, it also cranks the electric bill to the max) There was no remote in the box and the a/c was a biotch to install so we just decided to leave it as is. I called LG and they are being nice and sending a remote control but if that doesn't work this thing is going to be a ridiculous mess to replace. We have 3 other LG air conditioners and only 1 is still working. We are incredibly unhappy about this and now must figure out how to replace all these a/c's!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by canlendyou Light weight, easy to install works great.
Much lighter and smaller in size than older 18000 btu units with same efficiency. That works for me.
