Ignore all bad reviews this is a great product that does the job.
First things first this cools a space way larger that what it is rated for, makes me wonder how accurate those suggestions are. The install was easy and quick for me anyways and the unit is quiet, so quiet that at low I had to check that it was running. On high the noise level is also very acceptable.
I could not be happier after just 3 days owning this product, love the timer feature and the energy saver that clicks off the fan when the desired room temperature is reached, then the unit turns the fan on about every three minutes to check to see if the compressor needs to start cooling again.
If you are going out and do not wish to leave it running, then set the times to come on at a desired time so you come home to a cool place.
I would say this is one of the best choices for a window a/c. Goodbye sleepless nights. :)

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Uriel3766 Awesome, Quiet, In Store, and HAS a Drain Hole!!
LG is the only manufacturer that produces a(n) air conditioner that comes with its own drain hole. Why the others do not is beyond me. Living in Central Texas where the heat and humidity can be 105F and a humidity of 98+ percent, to not have a drain hole pre-made is asking for troubles!! Had a Kenmore window A/C that this new LG has replaced. The corrosion where a drain should have been made its own. Needless to say, the Kenmore ate itself. Literally.
Now, as for the "noise". I have measured the decibels on my unit. I have as yet to figure out how anyone can get any readings above 45-decibels. Mine runs on high, at 74F, energy saving mode, and it's UNDER 45-decibels. Not sure what framework others have, though mine is aluminum. The unit IS quiet!! I mean like Q-U-I-E-T for a window unit!!
Cooling down a room in a hurry is NOT a(n) issue either!! OMG!! After installing, caulking the edges, and turning it on, it took a room of 14 by 20-feet down from 98F to 78F in 10-minutes. 10 MINUTES!! 20-degrees cooler in 10-minutes!! Not sure if that is a record or not, but I've had window A/C's darn near my entire life, and I've never had one cool a room so quickly before!!
While there are other places online that have and carry this unit, I found that only Home Depot has this A/C IN STOCK!! Being someone that shops online first, looks over all the information, reads the comments of others about a product before getting it, compares, then goes out (maybe) to get something, waiting 3 to 5-business days for a air conditioner isn't something I recommend, especially in heat and or humid conditions!! While Home Depot may not be the cheapest, it IS the fastest, most efficient, and best "if it doesn't work today I can return it and have it replaced today" value!! While my A/C had NO defects, faults, and runs perfectly straight out of the box, I am sure that someone, somewhere, and at some point in time MIGHT. Given the return policies of "other places", not to mention the hassle of dealing with them from a purchase online, let me say this.......For the dollar or two saved from Online Shopping, it's far far better to find this A/C at your local Home Depot, and not have to deal with the hassles of others!!
Though the product says 15-Amps, it only takes 6.9 Amps!!!! So just plug-in the wall socket like anything else. It doesn't pull 15-Amps.
For the quality, value, finding this unit in store and in stock, AND for a unit that HAS a drain hole, THANK YOU HOME DEPOT!!!! Two thumbs up from a room filled (literally) with electronics!! I don't need a heater in the winter with the electronics I have that run non-stop. VERY Satisfied!!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by SamP Does not Last
Bought it and worked very well; cold air, quiet, easy to program. But it stopped being efficient after only 10 months and now 13 months later, and 1 month after the warranty expired, it is a piece of junk.
First it became louder, then stopped blowing cold air and now also the control panel is stuck.
Now the worst part, based on the first three months of operation I bought a second but smaller unit. it has been 10 months now and this second unit started to act like the first one.
So, DO NOT BUY an LG window AC, they seem to be made to last the warranty period of 1 year and no more.

Bougth this AC unit to replace a 5K BTU unit. This unit is much quieter and cools much faster than the old unit. (The old unit is still working and is now in a childs room.) I was concerned with the bad reviews, however, I am completely satisfied with the unit I bought. I would definately reccomend you purchasing this unit. I always install a support bracket with all window AC units, not only for safety, but it makes installation and removal so much easier. The 4 on quality was due to the guide bracket on the bottom of the unit was very slightly bent upward, this took a pair of pliers and about 10 seconds to fix.

I live in South West Florida, where the summer heat is agonizing! I bought this 8000 BTU unit, and my life has changed.
This unit FAR exceeded my expectations. I bought the 5000 BTU unit originally, and it was not keeping the room cool even though it ran at full capacity with the fan peaked. When I changed it out for this one, within 15 minutes my room felt like a New England winter night.
With the 8000 BTU unit, I just set it to low and let it run... My only problem is sometimes I get up and I think my feet are going to freeze to my tile floor. It is deceptively quiet. I set it to low thinking it would slowly cool the place. Now I am scraping ice off the walls... Ok, slight exaggeration, but not far off.
BUY THIS THING! I PROMISE YOU WILL BE SATISFIED! IF YOU HAVE A HUGE ROOM, THIS IS MORE THAN ENOUGH, AND IT FITS IN THE SMALLEST WINDOWS TOO!
STOP READING THIS AND JUST BUT IT!
Are you really still reading this? Go, the store opens at 6AM!
