Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DanESTL Hard to connect hoses, Not much output for a big room.
The hose connection to the window piece is not easy. For a 200 sq ft room, we had to augment with a floor fan to move the cool air around, but it could not lower the temp much.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Brady Tried 2 units, stopped cooling
I ordered this unit for my garage and went ahead and installed an exhaust hose and outlet and a drain line through the exterior brick wall. First unit cooled for about a day and then just blew air out the same temperature of the room. Thought I got a dud. Had to box up and take to the local home depot and the return took about 15-20 minutes. I got the second one in and it worked few a few days and then I just put an infrared thermometer on the front and it is blowing air out that is 94 degrees. About to return it and try something else.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MarkG Excellent, efficient, & cost-effective product!
Set-up was easy for the most part. Other folks here have said the AC is noisy, true (a little) but I'd rather have a very cool/chill room than a hot one any day or evening. I don't have to empty out excess water & my electric bill isn't as high as with my previous older AC portable unit. It's true that the air flow is vast, from one end of the room to the other. The price was right for this product & it's worth a lot more...I would definitely purchase another unit (for the same purchase price). Thank you for making such an excellent, durable product. I am a very happy customer indeed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BIGKIELBASSA Take it camping
Works great with a Honda 2000 is portable generator. Just plug it into the generator using a 12 or 10 ga. Extension cord . Shove the units hot air exhaust hose under the wall of the tent venting the hot air outside. Also great for at home because it works well in either a tall casement window, or a conventional double hung window.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tw Too poorly made to even turn on
This unit has to vent to the outside to function properly.
There is 6" diameter tube that's supposed to attach at one end to the ac unit, and at the other end to an adapter piece that fits in the the window.
The attachment pieces are so poorly designed they won't connect to the tube.
The instructions are completely useless; don't even show what's supposed to happen to make it work. They just say to attach it all together.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by WingNut VERY SAD : (
It's the elephant in the room. Portable !! ?? Just because it has wheels on it ! ? You could put wheels on a window shaker an call that portable. It comes with only a 2 foot vent flex pipe for venting.
Sounds like a meat grinder or wood chipper. Get some ear plugs an turn up the tv.
The only good thing is the remote.
I should have purchased a window shaker for less $
The only good thing was the free an fast shipping.
I love HD

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jarhead Good basic low cost unit
Bought with the purpose of a low cost temporary A/C source in an enclosed patio room here in south Florida that faces to the West and the setting sun. Many reviews critiques the connections; I would say you need to read the instruction and study the connections first. Make the connections from the hose to the window plate out of the window, the slots are tight and challenging, but provide a good connection if done right. As far as the critiques of the hose falling out, I would say they are not being "screwed" on far enough; again, connect the hose to each connectors (window and A/C unit) first and screw them on till they won't go any farther. I have my unit sitting in the corner of the patio and in a couple of minutes, I've opened the window and closed it on the window sliding plate and I'm ready to go. Granted, it's not sealed around the window sliding plate like my other "permanent" portable A/C unit in my bedroom; but I'll accept that since it's purpose is temporary when needed. I've never had the hose disconnect from the units, window or the two connectors they're screwed into. Good basic unit at a low cost.

The product arrived, had difficult install directions requiring a handyman. Once installed, product did not power up and needed to be returned. Returning process easy at Home Depot
