Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TechSpecialist First time a house of five needed their shirts
I got my unit during a temp of 80-85 degrees in my room since our upstairs is hotter than the down stairs because of certain issues. We live in a place where no portable acs are allowed, where they wont provide a fix for either. When I installed this unit in my room and paired it with my lasko blower fan everyone slept with a blanket that night when normally everyone sleeps without them because temps at night are around 80 especially with the lasko. This dropped the temp dramatically from that to 71 and it often goes no higher than 73-74 and now four of my friends want to invest in getting one per each of their rooms because for the very first time they can sleep easy. The tank of water usually last over half a day at best.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Micajah Seems to work, but evaporative cooler is only semi effective in el cajon, ca
I think the product is good. I did some research about where I live in El Cajon, Ca. I thought the humidity would be low enough here that I would see good results from an evaporative cooler. I tried it in my shed / office space. It was semi-effective. It seemed that it took the temperature down 5 degrees on average. If it was really dry outside, I might see a 10 degree difference max. I have a vent in the shed which should have helped stop humidity buildup inside, but I still would see the humidity get into the high 60-low 70 percent range.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CherylV Bought last year
Not only did I pay more than 2 times what it is selling for this year, but the pump has gone out and I can't even find a replacement! Where is the support for purchases?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Yogui60 Awesome cooler
this evaporative cooler is awesome, i just bough it and like its name says , it works like a champ, i live in a apartment, 1 bedroom , 1 bathroom and 1 kitchen, from the moment i turned it on it started cooling the whole apartment, i dont know if its because i just bought it but it doesnt leak water, it doesnt make noise, and it blows cool and maybe cold air.
when i turn it to the lowest velocity, the tempeture is cool, in the medium velocity the tempeture is cooler, and for me the high velocity is already too cold , actually it starts getting cold in the medium velocity, i recomend this vaporative cooler 100%

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Peanuts Removed the water sensor
I, too, purchased this a year ago (in 2013) and only used for a couple of months during the summer to cool just one room. It worked fine then. I cleaned it out for winter storage and just pulled it back out day before yesterday to cool the same room.
The red flashing "need water" sign would not stop flashing even though the water reservoir was full. Therefore the pump would not come on. I basically had a $200+ box fan.
Then I simply cut out the little magnetic sensor that was in place by the pump, tied up the wires and now the water pump will come on. Of course, I'll have to 'manually' make sure I don't burn out the pump by turning the pump off or keeping the water reservoir with water.
The components are very cheaply made.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mel01 returned after one week
there is only one panel for intake for cooling the air so it just doesn't cool like it could. The fill door was very difficult to open and I scraped my knuckle twice and just decided to leave it open for the next fill. Also, filling to max capacity was not enough water to get through and 8-hour work day (it was used to cool our home office) and had to be refilled after just a few hours. Also, it is almost impossible to roll over carpet without it tipping over, so it took about 15 trips to the bathroom to fill up pitcher after pitcher to fill up the reservoir. Certainly not worth $215.
