Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Satisfied Best One I Tried
We live in a little one bedroom apartment in Orange County, CA. This was my third attempt at an air conditioner and I must say, it really has been the best one I tried. Our first one was a different model. It constantly needed to be emptied as if it was on the dehumidifier setting 24/7. I was rolling it outside to empty multiple times a day. We got tired of that, so we went with a small window unit, but again we were disappointed. I had friends that had great portable units, so I knew there were good ones out there. I can say confidently that this LG model is one such model.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Frustrated Garbage. Don't last.
I've bought 2 in the last couple years. Both stopped blowing cold air within 2 years of purchase. LG service just wanted me to pay to have them repaired. It should be labeled a disposable air conditioner. Hoping some of the other brands are better.

Apparently whatever I wrote contained inappropriate language so here it is the skinny: RUN DO NOT JUST WALK AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Brimick 72 PINTS A DAY? All over my floor!
Purchased this unit several years ago. Worked great for a little over a month but then it started leaking from the base of the unit and no alarms went off to let us know. Needless to say, it had been leaking for several days onto our bedroom floor. The carpet was soaked AND the flooring under the carpet warped from the weight of the unit sitting on it. We had to rip the carpet, padding and flooring out, which cost three times the amount of the unit.
Once we found there was a problem, we made a makeshift drain hose to put in the lower drain outlet (there was no drain hose included with the unit), set the unit on a wooden crate a foot off the floor, so the excess water could drain continuously into a bucket but the water still leaked from the bottom of the unit, so we had to put a storage tub lid under it to catch the water that didn't drain from the hose.
Luckily we purchased an extended warranty, which was honored in full. We got every penny we paid for the unit back. We were allowed to keep the unit to do with as we pleased but the damage to our carpet and sub flooring was not covered.
It cools the bedroom well and we are still using the unit with the drain hose, bucket and lid. We have to drain the bucket twice a day and use a turkey baster to remove the water that is leaking through the bottom of the unit.
It is a little loud but we can't sleep when it's quiet, so the noise is ok with us. We will continue to use it until it breaks down.
We found a newer model on Craigslist which we bought for our living and dining rooms and it hasn't started leaking (yet). It was 109 degrees with the heat index yesterday and it kept the two rooms between 76 and 80 degrees. Either LG worked out some of the bugs since we purchased the original unit or we got a lemon!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Robert713 Does the job to cool garage in summer
I have my LG A/C unit in my 2 car garage. I'm from Houston, Tx where it is up to 103 or so on the regular. I usually woodwork in it in the hottest part of the day, 2pm-6pm which is also the time the sun happens to be shinning directly of the garage door. Add when I would park my hot car on the other side of the garage, it would get even hotter. I have seen it up to 125F and over 120F multiple times. After I put this in, I can get it to stay at 80F-81F on the hottest of days if I keep my insulated garage door down. Or can get up to 90F-93F when I open and close the door and park my car in. But that's still 25 degrees cooler. It has the usual disadvantages of a portable ac. It doesn't have an intake hose so it has to make up the air pressure of the exaust thru cracks around the garage door, holes in the wall, the door leading to the house. I also put a one way vent to go from the house to the garage that helped a lot because it was sucking in cold air as opposed to 103F air. I also sprayfoamed around the garage door so it creates a seal. You also have to vent the ac. I vented mine thru the wall and it goes up into the attic. I added a couple soffett vents to right above the ac on the outside. It's not the best way to vent it but you need a 6in pipe to vent it properly or it will freeze up and turn the ac on and off every 3 min. It's better then making a 10 ft hose to the celieng, which would over work the ac. It doesn't create any moisture in the attic but it's the Texas summer so it would evaporate anyways. I tested with a moisture meter. I would recommend it to someone looking to cool a garage to livable conditions. It's not as cool as the house but i didn't expect it to be. For what I paid, it is some of the best money I've spent on anything in my tool collection. I couldn't go without it. I also made an extra filter with a regular ac filter on the outside to catch the sawdust particles because without it, it would get clogged. I have it on straight for about 60 hours a week and and it costs about $40 a month in electricity which is worth every dollar.

Easy to setup, but very noisy and inefficient. I'm using it to cool a 140 SqFt room and it takes it forever to bring the temp under 81 deg. I don't live in a particularly hot area either (High Point, NC).
The unit is installed correctly, exhausting heat outside the house. The exhaust duct is not thermally isolated at all and it gets really hot (106 deg) and even though I'm using only a fourth of its length, this has to detract from the system's efficiency. Of course, I will try to wrap the duct with some kind of isolator, but this goes against the "convenience" that is so highly touted for this kind of units.
As it is, I'm just glad I did not get the 7000 BTU unit.

These are basically really expensive fans. We've got two going in our bedroom, plus a ceiling fan and stand-up fan and they aren't going any lower than 85.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Faizan_Shah LG LP0910WNR Review
I think LG LP0910WNR is a portable air conditioner that has been designed to give sufficient cooling to rooms that are as large as 300 square feet. It gives you the best value for your money by doubling up as a cooler and a dehumidifier.
This air conditioner comes with a good number of features that will make your work easy and enable you to cool your house more efficiently. Let’s take a closer look at these features. First of all, it’s important to start with the feature that most people start with when looking for air conditioners: programmability. This unit enables you to stay in control of the temperature within your home even when you are not physically present at home. The 24 hour on/off timer will let you decide the times when the air conditioner will be on and the times when it will be off.
This way, you will be able to keep the internal environments in your home conducive without involving children in the process and at the same time conserving as much energy as possible. The LG LP0910WNR has been designed to give a cooling power of up to 9000 BTU that can effortlessly cool areas as big as 300 square feet. The cold air can be directed easily to any part of the room that needs cooling thanks to the 2-way air direction that’s provided by the design of the vents. To further enhance the convenience that you’ll get with this device, the LG LP0910WNR comes with a remote control that enables you to set the amount of cooling that you’ll get without having to leave your seat.
Unfortunately, just like many of the indoor air conditioners, this unit has to be ventilated to the outside of the room. This interferes with the unit’s mobility to some extent. However, it will not be a bother when you consider that the unit comes with a window installation kit with detailed instructions on how to set up the vent. Many of you will probably consider me a biased reviewer if I don’t mention the convenience that you will get with the LG LP0910WNR. Some of the features that have been included to ensure that you get as much convenience as possible include a self-evaporation system that will give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing that you will not need to empty any water bucket.
You’ll also get a 2-speed fan that will ensure that you are in control at all times. When it comes to maintenance and usability, the LG LP0910WNR gives you good value for your money thanks to features like the automatic restart that will ensure that you don’t need to physically switch the device on after a power blackout. Another great one is seen in the washable air filters that will save you the money that you would have otherwise spend on replacements.
It comes with digital controls that come with an easy to read screen that will ensure that you get a precise temperature adjustment in the room. Considering the features that you will get with this unit, we can comfortably conclude that it will give you the best value for your money. Unless you are yet to master the art of making excuses to justify your purchase, you will have no problem finding enough reasons to buy this product.
