Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dynomac Cheap Cooler for Your Garage
Very easy to set up. Install the wheels, fill with water and your ready to go. Cooler works good and keeps me cool in my garage as long as the cooler is pointing directly at me. The only problem I had with this cooler is the oscillation feature did not work right out of the box. I have not troubleshot to see why this feature does not work and I didn't want to return it and wait for another one to be delivered to my house. So I will either figure out why the oscillation does not work or I'll just live with it as is. If you can get this cooler on sale I would recommend buying it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by onlineShopper Great for dry climate
I bought this portable AC unit for my elderly aunt who lives in El Paso, a dry climate, because it works great. I would not recommend for a moist environment. In El Paso, my aunt has a swamp cooler and they tend stop cooling when it gets too hot. This portable AC unit works great not only for those days but every day. It cools the room she's in extremely well. You put in the required amount of water in the reservoir and turn it on. Once the water has evaporated, the AC keeps blowing air like a fan. It has made her very happy. TIP: the legs are inside the unit, not in the box.

The fan rubs on the grill so the ocillation mode does not work. It has to be adjusted just right for the fan not to rub. Other than that it works ok.

This is used as a high volume humidifier in the very dry air that exists this time of year and it works well as such. This purchase replaces an equivalent model purchased about 8 years ago that finally broke down beyond the ability to be able to repair it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by woodtrner lasted one season
unit's pump quit. troubleshot and found ground signal to control water pump inoperative. Something went out on control board.
Also found that you must drain regularly or flush with vinegar to prevent internals from caking up (I'm using softened water). I guess you could use distilled water, but the cooler uses a lot of water, so it would be expensive.
fan blade is not well balanced causing the cooler to vibrate

This is our third summer and it is still working perfectly. Takes little space but does the job effectively. Easier to manage than a larger window or roof unit.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tink Pain to keep clean
It did a great job at cooling the room down but you have to take it apart to clean the inside and there are no smooth surfaces to clean. It was very difficult to keep the inside clean and the blades clean. Even changing the filter didn't help the smell. I wouldn't buy this again.
