Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Eddie Its Ok, a Metal Box
As other reviews have said, this is a metal box. It is necessary for putting in a through-wall air conditioner. One word of caution if you are ordering this for a new installation. Wait until it arrives before you frame out the opening for it. I downloaded the instructions (same instructions included) and framed the opening to spec, upon receiving the sleeve, the unit was almost an inch and a half shorter than the opening. I understand having some lead way to account for out of square installations, but this was quite excessive. Perhaps a conversion error between metric and US measurement? Also, as others have said, the instructions are quite vague in how to attach the the opening. Perhaps an insurance issue on the manufacturer's part. I drilled a few holes on each side and used screws. It is quite hard to keep the unit square due to it's flimsyness, but in the end, I'm not sure that it mattered. The Air conditioner fits quite loosely in the metal box, and LG relies on the included insulation to make a snug fit. It is sort of Rube Goldbergish in my opinion. The expanded metal screen in the rear of the unit is quite "expanded" and it seems like almost too much, as the compressor of the air conditioner is visible. I bought the LG sleeve to accompany the brand new LG air conditioner, but probably any old metal sleeve would have worked.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Hermanfurd Somewhat disappointed.
Product arrived in very good condition. However the installation instructions leave something to be desired and the unit for which this product is supposedly made will not fit if the spacers are used. Unfortunately the LG unit itself was defective and had to be returned for replacement. If another defective heat / ac unit arrives and has to be returned I am not certain if this product will work with another brand. I already have it securely mounted in my wall so I am somewhat disappointed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Burbankbetty Almost perfect!!!
The only fly in the ointment is that Home Depot did not inform us that a sleeve was essential to complete this product. The unit works beautifully and is very thrifty on electricity. It has nice clean lines and was not hard to install. The sleeve or casing was the toughest part. I would definately recommend this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MaiSeto Wall Case For LG Built-In-Air Conditioner
Originally Wall Case was Optional and then updated as "Required"....it was necessary and finished a Beautiful Addition to my home providing both cooling and heating!! Very satisfied even though the installation required a large amount of tedious work to fit in my prior air conditioner's space...a good handy man recommended!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TexasHeat Nice but costly for what it is
Good for its purpose but very costly for a piece of metal

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DroidRTDecco it is just a sleeve
When you want to put the LG air conditioner in a wall you need a sleeve. Hoedepot has the air conditioners in a huge pile, but they don't stock the sleeve. It takes an extra week to get.
Now that it is here I'm so excited!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HeyJoe Wall Sleeve. Whatta You Want.
It's a wall sleeve for an air conditioner. I mean the rating stuff is kinda irrelevant. But it's solidly made and well finished. And, interesting, it comes with all the paper for a return in case that's what you need to do. No need to get an RMA and all that yank around. Thanks LG. - Installed it. Works great.

The holes in the bad weather covers don't line up well with the holes in the housing. There were no instructions for anchoring the unit in the opening.
