Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BlazinHot LG 8,000BTU Portable Air Conditioner
It does its job. I cant get it to cool a 250 sq. ft. room below 72F. The dehumidify feature does work nicely, and for myself, it has not needed to be drained of water after 2 weeks. If you need to use in windows over 3 feet in width/height it did not come with enough screws to secure all of the mounting plates together (only came with 1 screw for this). I only needed the 1, but others will need more.
I also found that the hose mount to the window was not designed all that well. They supply self-tapping screws for the hose bracket onto mounting plate that did not tap well, and should have been pre-drilled. I used a drill after messing with it for 10 minutes and it worked well. I also did not think it was sealed well between this bracket to mounting plate, so I used duct tape to seal this.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hardave Low ratings are accurate
Unclear directions, somewhat flimsy window parts, loud, takes up too much room for a "small unit", spendy in relation to other more traditional a/c units, and wouldn't cool a room 2/3 the size of the stated capacity.
Great idea on the face of it, but poor execution. Returning it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ResearcherJoe Worst AC ever stay away!
The AC for me was easy to setup, it blew ice cold air too, The two biggest downside ever, The Ac cold down my room way too fast that after turning off the room was hot again within 5 mins despite door closed and window sealed and closed. After purchasing it 2 days ago, it ran good for 30 mins at 15 min increments then completely stopped working saying that the water tank was full. It was suppose to auto evaporate hence no bucket to dump. It does have a drain plug in case you need to dump. The second worst problem is what most reviews say, its way to loud almost like the deep drumming of a 1960's classic muscle car!! My other roommates could hear it on the other side of our house which is a 5 bedroom single story house!
If you want an AC unit where the auto evaporation function works and its 90% less noisy where others outside your room or even in their rooms can't hear it run, Then purchase the LG 12000 BTU unit that home depot has and run away as fast as you can from this unit.
I took it back the same day and purchase the 12000 btu, its been 2 days and the newer unit is so far superior and better! One quick advice to those who purchase the unit I am recommending, make sure to turn on auto clean through the remote otherwise, the AC may stop blowing ice cold air, For a min i though the new unit broke cause the ice cold air stopped then i turned auto clean on and no its working great not to mention that its auto evaporation function is working since it hasn't once said it was full!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lafm15 Great portable A/C and Dehumidifier
The best thing about this is, aside from it being a portable a/c, is that there is no need for a drain hose!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tina Disappointed in this unit AND this store
Having written an honest, personal review of this unit and yet having my review rejected by this site concerns me. I'm sure that this review won't be accepted either. I'm lead to believe that there is a certain amount of negative reviews that are allowed and mine was one too many. I will NOT keep quiet, though. Be wary of the overly-positive reviews of this unit. I'm sure they are biased for obvious reasons. Concerning the unit: the hose wasn't long enough, the window panels are flimsy and seem cheaply made. And the instructions are all but useless, so setup was not as easy as some people have stated. I'm not sure how well it cools, as I have yet to use it on a very hot day. We are expecting hot weather next week, so we'll see.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by myloesays Does it's job
I bought this to use in my treatment room at work. the room is 9x12 and I have a new client every 30 minutes with two wax pots turned on causing lots of heat. This little guy works good and fast. It is loud but my parents have a bigger AC so it wasn't as loud as I anticipated. I do not have a window to vent the exhaust so I have it vented through the wall vent dumping into the hallway. I'm happy with this product and got the extended 3 year warranty.

The air conditioner works great for the small room we have in.
