Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bruce Not pleased with our Soleus Air Portable air conditioner
My wife has had this unit in her studio. The windows in the studio were too narrow for a window unit, so this was our solution.
Yesterday it was making quite a racket and she called the company and were basically told "it is the fan, it is not repairably by you, you can ship it to us at your expenses and we will look at it". We purchased it on July 8, 2010, yesterday was July 26, 2011 (one-year and two weeks). It was NOT heavily used. We are disappointed in the lack of service and lack of commitment by the company in this matter (we did buy at Home Depot, but not really HD's fault)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WayneRooney SO FAR SO GOOD
"This unit is loud, especially when the compressor turns off and on. In addition, water builds up in the little tray at the bottom and needs to be emptied daily. If it isn't emptied, the A/C unit shuts off automatically. Waste of money."/////////////WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? WATER BUILDS UP IN THE LITTLE TRAY AT THE BOTTOM? THE A/C UNIT SHUTS OFF AUTOMATICALLY? I HAVENT SEEN NO WATER BUILD UP AND UNIT KEEPS GOING AND GOING AND GOING ALL NITE JUST LIKE THE ENERGIZER RABBIT

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by clintmo a little pricey but cooled my 16 X 22 room nicely
I liked the moving louvers. It was a real pain to drain the water. Some nights I had to drain it 2 to 3 times a night, which is a huge pain, then some nights it would not need to be drained at all. Depends on the humidity. I finally set it on top of a table and ran a hose into a bucket so I wouldn't have to drain it all the time. That worked but it looked terrible and my wife hated it.

We are very pleased with the purchase of this unit. It was easy to assemble except they could be more explicit on the hose and pan for water collection. We were puzzeled with these objects as it was not clear what to do with them, but the unit runs perfectly and works well to keep us cool, especially in the heat that we have been having this year. We highly recommend this unit to anyone needing a portable unit.

We purchased this unit for my Mother's apartment in a retirement community. It delivers as promised, quickly cooling her bedroom. The air vents are larger than on other units and adjustable. Remote control works well, no water accumulation or other malfunction. Would recommend to cool one room efficiently.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TheJimGuy Very good, but lacking key feature.
No complaints about the unit, the complaint is about the features. Boasts a 24 hour timer. But that timer will only turn it on or off up to 24 hours from when you set it. I need it to turn on and off each day, not one time. Disappointing in that regard.

This unit is loud, especially when the compressor turns off and on. In addition, water builds up in the little tray at the bottom and needs to be emptied daily. If it isn't emptied, the A/C unit shuts off automatically. Waste of money.
