Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MartyRN It solved my problem...
There is a room in my house that was impossible to keep cool. Putting this portable AC unit in there solved the problem. The AC was ready to go, the kit to position the exhaust and intake in a window was a bit tricky, but it was doable after I figured out I needed duct-work tape (hot/cold). I took advice from other review sites and insulated the exhaust air duct, which makes the room cooler still. The person who sleeps in that room says it is 100% improvement. My problem is solved. I will be watching the electric bill to see if I have traded one problem for another ....

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by waitin4what REALLY DOES A GREAT JOB!!!
Our AC went out and we got this for a temporary fix. Works GREAT. House of 1600 sq ft - all but 2 rooms on opposite end stay COLD.
Hoses are an eyesore but must be necessary. Piece that the hose goes into didn't fit our window...so we had to cut the long one. Not really a big deal.
Going to pick up 2 more...I for my bedroom and one for the garage.

It is ok. It blows cold air and fits vertically. It takes several hours to reduce the temps in my living room / dining room combo. I took a photo but this system is not letting me post it

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Terry A very nice Air Conditioner
This air conditioner performs well. Last year I purchased another brand a/c identical in it's specifications and performance but that well known brand performed poorly in comparison to this unit. The main problem with the other air conditioner was that it was very noisy and it's cooling ability dropped off over time. I contacted Customer Service with the "noise" problem and was told that "if the problem didn't affect the devices performance they could not send a Service Tech". So I sold it. This Whynter 14000 btu system performs well. It cools my entire 500 sq. ft. area quickly and is quiet and the installation was very easy. To be honest the quality and design could stand a little upgrading but overall this is a very nice system for the money.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by bubbaliscious not for everyone
We need this to cool a loft area. It does that. The hoses are an eyesore. The noise level is OK as it is not a sleeping area. Some say that they could sleep thru the noise that it creates, not me. We do not have a moisture issue so don't expect there to be much draining the condensate pan if there is one. Tough decision between this and a window unit as far as efficiency vs sound and looks, we didn't have a choice. The hose panel for the window is not long enough for a patio door. We had a piece of wood cut to cover the additional space. Easy to install - had it ready to run in a few minutes although we didn't run it for a day per the instructions (4 hours).

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by RBA Better than nothing?
I have to say I'm fairly disappointed with the cooling ability of this product. I switched to a portable AC since we have new windows, and a window AC seemed more problematic to install. Although the set-up on this AC was straight-forward, it simply does not seem to be powerful by comparison to my former 10,000 BTU window AC. I expected superior cooling, as it is 14,000 BTU, but it simply isn't the case. Although it cools the room somewhat, it only does so by setting the thermostat at the lowest possible temperature of 61F. If I could do so easily, I would return it, but after 2 weeks of trying to get my home office cool, it is simply meeting the minimum acceptable standard. Not recommended.
