I bought this because my bedroom faces south and has two outside walls. The room regularly used to be 77-82 degrees during the day. It cools my 10X11 room fine in the morning and evening hours but toward the middle of the day it struggles a bit.
The condensation tank is very small, very little water came out when I unscrewed the cap and pulled out the rubber plug.
The 4 filters got dirty fairly quick for how see through they are in my opinion. While the filters won't look dirty after about a month, clean them.
After a month of daily use, it seems to not cool as well as it used to, whether that's due to the much warmer temps, I don't know. The unit does cycle off if it runs too long but can't meet the desired temp.
I wouldn't recommend this because it seems to stop working after a month, why would I recommend a product that doesn't work?

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MyNickname Compressor Turns off Randomly
If I set the desired temperature to 70 degrees, and the unit reports that the room is 75 degrees, the compressor will come on and it will start blowing cold air.
When the temperature falls to 70, the compressor (not the fan, just the refrigeration part) will turn off. So far so good.
Unfortunately, the unit does not always exhibit this behavior. Sometimes, the compressor will just turn off, even if the desired temperature is set lower than the temperature the unit reports.
It takes some combination of unplugging/replugging, power cycling, moving the set temperature up and down, and animal sacrifice to make the unit's compressor come back on again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TimB Super Product if You Know How to Modify It
Bought this LG air conditioner model because I was excited by its small size and cool performance when I saw the store demo. It had plenty of wind capacity and it seemed to be very cool.
I read the reviews and most of what I saw there is what I also experienced, but as an Electrical Engineer, I decided to do something about the inherent flaws. I noticed that if I left my door to my 100 sq ft room ajar, there was a tremendous influx of air that felt like a wind across my face as I peered out the door crack. I knew that the a/c was drawing into the room the make-up air that it was expelling out the window as heated air from the compressor. I knew something had to be done about this influx of warm air into the room if I wanted to satisfactorily cool the entire room and not just feel the cool air blowing on me directly from the unit.
I purchased two small plastic boxes 14"x12"x6" and some 8" HVAC duct hose and went to work. I also bought a 10" wide thin piece of birch plywood to fit the height of the window opening that I was going to create. I cut a 7-1/2" circle near the bottom of the wood panel to accept the 8" duct hose that I taped into place with duct tape all around the perimeter. I also traced the exhaust hose port and cut it in 12" above the duct hose whole on center. Then I duct taped the exhaust hose onto the wood panel in the same way.
Using my Dremel tool I cut out openings in the back of the plastic boxes to fit over the lower grille portholes of the a/c, both the lower side and lower back grilles. I positioned the box on the side vertically and the box on the rear horizontally so that they overlapped and I cut out the side of the vertical box to allow air flow into the rear box. Use duct tape to attach the side and rear boxes to the a/c unit, as well as, to seal and attach them to each other.
Cut a 7-1/2" hole in the center of the vertical box for the 8" duct hose ot attach and tape it into the hole around the perimeter just like the wood panel connection.
That's all there is to it. Now the air conditioner cools the room very well without drawing in outside air into the room. It also can dehumidify the room are thereby adding to the room comfort. Works perfectly, just like a window unit, but not as ugly or permanent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ally Does a really great job
We purchased this product to get us through a difficult period - our central air went out, it was 100 degrees, repair was delayed a long time. It did the job so well that we put off our repair longer.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by phirestalker Just barely cool
I bought this unit right before summer in a probably not even 1000 sq ft home. I used the unit in one of two bedrooms and it seemed fine until summer came. The unit was only good right on me and even then just barely. it was 90 degrees outside and about the same inside the hallway. I kept the door of this bedroom closed for 2 hours and only got 7 or 8 degrees lower than ambient. that night or any night when the day was 90 or over it couldn't bring the temp down past 80 again with the door closed. I have returned the unit and bought the 9000 btu model as it was better rated. and after only 10 mins it has knocked out 4 degrees with the door open.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cash I love this thing!!!
I read all the reviews and for the most part it sounds like the expectations were unrealistic. I have a large bedroom upstais that never got cool. I put this in there and it actually lowered the temp to a comfortable 70 degrees in mid-afternoon in Texas. Prior to using this unit I could not get the room under 82 degrees in the late afternoon. I was a little nervous about my power bill but when it cam in I was shocked to see it had gone down!!! My central unit no longer had to run 24/7 because of the added BTUs. I highly recommend this to anyone as long as you realize 7000 BTUs will only cool so much (not an entire house).
