Best Purchase I've Ever Made!
Perfect AC Unit! works like a charm, I bought this for my studio which always gets stuffy and dry in the Heat Seasons but this little baby takes good care of that, the packaging was very nice and Super easy to setup! It took me about 15 mins to set the whole thing up including the window kit which is really simple to do, I did have to wait an Hour before turning it on because it was on its side for the trip home in my car, if you dont know you need to have the AC unit standing upright for at least an hour before operating it, it's way quieter than I expected it to be and the remote is very useful as i dont have to get up from the comfort of my own bed to mess with the controls the remote works from about 15 feet away from the unit itself. Overall this AC Unit definitely does the job! Doesnt take up too much space of the room at all, is very quiet, but most importantly leaves my room feeling perfectly cool!

Wrong BTU
This unit is shown as 8,000 BTU for the DOE rating, which you should always use (not the higher manufacturer rating. When it arrived it stated right on the box 5,500 DOE. So buying this portable unit is just like buying a 5,500 BTU window a/c unit.

Broken Air Ducts
Customer review from frigidaire.com logo
My air ducts became detach from the unit less than a month after I bought it. I mailed in the warranty and I will be contacting you on this week. I had to reattach with duct tape. The quality of the air duct was terrible. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Frigidaire name doesn’t disappoint!
Customer review from frigidaire.com logo
In 1918 Frigidaire was founded as the Guardian Frigerator Company. They developed the first self-contained refrigerator. Frigidaire has remained a trusted name in appliances. Just the name speaks cold. That is the reason why I purchased not only one, but two of these units. The first one I purchased was the 10,000 BTU model for my living room. It works so well that I decided to get a second unit which is the 8000 BTU that I am writing this review about. So in essence I am writing a review about both units. Both of these units work exceptionally well and keeps our living space nice and cool during our Colorado hot and dry summer. One of its great many features is a filter reset indicator light that comes on after 250 hours of use which is a reminder to clean the filters. I do this religiously about once a week. A great looking unit that runs nice and quiet. Personally I couldn’t be happier. I definitely recommend this product. Thank you Frigidaire! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

3 months then crap
Value :

Worked great the 1st 3 months then about September it was not getting cold! Following year I pulled it out and it was like September all over. 3 months cost me $350 plus high electric and now I’m looking for a new one. We have Central A/C but it’s set at 76 so I need one in my small room with a bay window where the sun comes up! 3 months great! Now still using it , but it’s garbage! Garbage! One year warranty is useless!

Please do not buy this unit thinking you are getting an 8000 BTU DOE certified device. This is a bald face lie you will contend with when the banged up package arrives at your doorstep festooned with 5500 BTU DOE in multiple places, including the product label. If you are concerned about energy efficiency, I recommend getting a product that cares to be accurate. If you want to see Frigidaire double down on their lies, please see the questions answered above. Just check Wirecutter next time and get the LG.
