Rated 1 out of 5Â by MissBToronto No Freeon??!!
We had the same experience as Anonymous from Denver. Installed the unit and while the fan worked, the unit was not cooling.
Called Home Depot, who called LG, who sent a service tech. We were told the unit had no freeon, so it either leaked or was never installed at the factory.
Waiting for UPS to come so that we can return. Not impressed!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by wsmith83 Easiest Installation I've ever seen.
I have two of these AC Units. The first was purchased last summer, and is still working great over a year later. I am pleased with the cooling capacity, noise level, and energy efficiency.
I have not scientifically measured the efficiency of this unit compared to others, so that is why I rated "Energy Efficiency" at 4. My electric bill is not bad, in spite of massive heat waves.
The installation of this AC unit was a breeze. The actual AC unit slides into the metal shell frame, which you mount in your window first. That means no having to balance a heavy item while trying to secure it. Just install the light-weight shell in your window, make sure it is secure, and then slide the actual AC unit cleanly into place.
There are two adjustable feet on the frame that are well balanced with the unit's center of gravity, and easy to adjust. On my window, I had to use a 3/4" board between the brick wall and the adjustable feet, but in a frame house, I imagine the feet would hit the outer ledge just fine.
I found the frame to mount very securely in my window, and because there are two feet (on either side), the whole thing is very stable. So, except for a small board I already had laying around, everything I needed was in the box.
Note: A normal "AC Window Bracket" will not work, or be needed with this unit. Two adjustable feet will be able to make secure contact with your outer window frame.
Because you can access the inside area of the frame (with the AC unit removed), this product would lend itself to be installed in a variety of conditions that normal one-piece units could. When just the frame is in the window, you have complete access to the inside of the shell, and therefore could fabricate any number of ad-hoc mounting solutions your situation may require, such as additional security from the side-an ideal solution for ground-level urban environments.
No matter where you install this, be sure to block the top of the window from opening. I used screws on the inside edge of the window track to prevent the window from being opened by accident.
Tip: Have open-ended wrench of the right size handy before you begin.
Make sure you have a grounded 15 Amp outlet near the window. If you must use an extension cord, do not use a power strip, use an extension cord made for air-conditioners.

I really like this unit alot because it's very easy to put it together right out of the box... Starts up nicely and it's very quiet when it's on... The only thing I didn't like about this unit is that the front grill panel it's very hard to snap the right bottom conner on where the wire sticks out from it always comes undone when putting it back on which LG Products could of made the better and easier to put it back on folks...other then that it keeps my second floor loft area nice and cool when it's really hot and humid outside... I also like the remote control very small and easy to use.. Will buy another LG Product again in my books

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Denise N. HIGH QUALITY AIR CONDITIONER
This is by far the best air conditioner I've ever bought. The overall appearance is modern looking and adds some style to your room. The touch pads are nice because all you have to do is lightly push on them. You don't have to push down hard or repeatedly touch it for it to work the way you want it to. I always use the "energy saver." In addition to it saving energy, it really does make a difference on my electric bill. A lower bill works out fine for me. The remote control makes things a lot easier for us couch potatoes. It amazes me how quiet this air conditioner is. We don't have to turn up the TV to hear it when the air conditioner is on. As far as cooling, this baby really pulls it's weight. I have it in my living room. Not only does it cool that room, it cools my dining room, kitchen, entrance way and hallway! I would recommend this to anyone and everyone. Finally, something that isn't too good to be true!
