In terms of price and aesthetics I'm really happy with this device. It was easy to set up and it's a nice, simple design. In terms of cooling, it's not keeping up with this heatwave. Before setting it up my bedroom was reading 38 degrees Celsius. Since setting it up and keeping it running for 24 hours my room now reads 30 degrees. So it's cooling the room down but it's still pretty uncomfortably hot in here. The part where the hose meets the machine is not air right. The cool breeze does not travel to the rest of the floor either. I'm also very confused about the modes and it doesn't explain this in the manual. What do these letter stand for? D/S, F/V, C/F etc.??? Overall, it's okay but it could be better.

I may buy this product again but keeping options open
My townhome has a forced air system. So basement and main level stay comfortably cool but upstairs is unbearably hot during high-temperature weather (85 degrees or higher). I was SO grateful when I turned on this unit and immediately felt and smelled fresh, cool air. The unit is set up in my 300 sq ft bedroom and does an excellent job cooling the area. I loved how the unit was packaged so I could just snap off the plastic straps and lift the box up. Assembly wasn't too difficult. I think the only setback I had with assembly is that my window is a little smaller than standard and the window insert was too small but the extender was too large so I had to get creative and fill in about 3 inches of space at the top of my vertical window. The only complaint I have is how loud the unit is. It is very difficult to watch television while unit is running but it's not impossible. The unit sounds just like the house air conditioner fan that blows outside...for anyone that would like a comparison. I have, however, gotten used to the loud noise so I am able to sleep with the unit on and am not awakened when I set the timer for it to come on overnight. For future models, I would also like to see a feature where the unit will measure the temperature in the room and when it hits that temperature, the unit turns off or turns to a very, very low fan mode. Currently, when the unit hits the desired temperature, it goes to fan mode and seems just as loud as the air conditioning mode. I've had the unit for 2 weeks. Overall, I am very grateful to have it. This is my first experience with a portable air conditioner so I'm just glad the product worked for me. Going forward, I would like to explore quieter options but if none exists, I know Toshiba works and is easy to use. I would recommend this to a friend but would warn them to be prepared for noise similar to an air conditioning unit that sits outside.

I really like the Toshiba air conditioner. It is quiet for a portable air conditioner and is very powerful in cooling a large area. It is attractive and easy to install as well as move around. It also comes with a straw to direct moisture on the dehumidifier mode, which is very helpful in protecting the floor from becoming wet. Ther are a few reasons I didn't ive it 5 stars. As far as the remote, it works from a short distance, although that is fine when we are reaching over the couch which is close to the window where the unit is placed. The remote also has a heat setting, which is disappointing because there is none on the unit. The description on the box is that it is an air conditioner and the instructions show a heat setting only on certain models. It was also difficult to install the wifi useing a code reader. It is a great idea to have all of these features when they work well but I use it the most as a very good basic air conditioner.

I live in AZ, it's been over 100 a couple of times already starting in April. I have a workshop in my Garage, but I find I can only use it in the winter, so I thought I'd find a portable AC unit big enought to deal with my, say 660 sq ft Garage. My first test was a morning when it was already 87 in the Garage, I let the unit run about 10 minutes and measures the temperature it was outputting, it the AC world this is called the temperature split, if it's more than 20 degrees that's good. In my case (see picture) it was 31 degrees, a very good sign. The first thing I noticed was how quite the unit was, but still a lot of air flow. Also that the vent on top oscilates up and down to move more the air around the room. After venting the air out the dryer duct, I was ready to let it run. When I started the temp was up to 90, and the outer door temp was 97. After running 30 minutes the temp was down to 81, after an hour it was 78. A 12 degree reduction in an hour. 76 degrees was my target, but it was now 95 outside and rising. An hour later I hit 75 and the unit stopped running continiously, the fan still ran but at a lower speed/pitch. For the next few hours I worked in the Garage, and the temp remained 75, with a relatively humidity of 7% (most of the country never sees this, so after running 5 hrs, there was no water to empty, one of my concerns about a portable AC unit - yea!).
And it's smart AC unit that can be monitored and controlled from your phone or via its own remote. The app is easy to use, lets you see the current temp and set temp, lets you change the speed, and tells you if it needs to be emptied). Very cool (in more than one way!).
I know the box said it was suitable for 400 sq ft, I did not ask it to get the temp any lower than 75, but it was easily able to do that in a 660 sq ft area (with an un-insulated metal Garage door - maybe my next project). I'll try to report back when we reach 115+ and let you know it it can deal with "real" heat.

This portable unit has a lot of neat features and it's hard to beat the 9,000 BTU DOE rating. The DOE rating indicates how the unit performs in a practical setting rather than ideal circumstances. If you are looking at portable air conditions and the DOE rating is not listed then buyer beware. Although a little difficult to configure, the smartphone app has the same controls as the remote control and the front panel on the unit itself. I did have to talk to the support folks before getting the app to complete the install process but the problem may be my phone or a software issue (operating system, security software, etc.). I also had one issue when installing the window slider into the window frame. The slider was too wide for my window so I had to shorten the length by cutting off a section of 'slider b'. Other than that installation was easy. My garage, which is about 600 square feet, is also my workshop and the temperature can get unbearable during the summer months. Although this unit is rated for only 400 square feet other 14,000 BTU units with a smaller DOE BTU rating mention cooling rooms as large as 750 square feet. Plus the automatic vent angle seems to really help move the air. This unit my not keep my entire garage at 70 degrees on a 90 degree day but my work area which is about 10 feet from the air conditioner is cooler after about an hour of run time. Moisture removal is an important feature to me too and this unit can remove up to 96 pints a day which is pretty impressive. This unit pulls 12 amps but fortunately I have multiple circuits in my garage so I don't have to worry about tripping a breaker when I use my corded power tools.

This is a powerful portable air conditioner from Toshiba that not only cools a 400 sq ft room, but also dehumidifies and ventilates. The installation instructions were clearly written and easy to follow. Because our weather has not gotten real hot or humid yet, we have not used the air conditioner or dehumidifier features for any length of time...we just tried and tested those features. We did, however run the fan a few afternoons to circulate the air in our house. It worked great and because it is so powerful, we were able to leave it on medium. It's nice that the louver can be adjusted too with just a push of a button so we can point the flow of air right where we want it. It can also be operated from a smart phone (you need to download the ap), or with the remote control that is included or directly on the display panel. It is super simple to set to exactly what you need or want your climate to be. It rolls easily with 4 wheels to change location, but we only move it when using the fan. It even has a sleep mode and a 24-hr timer. It looks great and is not an eye-sore in the room. It has a nice shape and design, it is stable, well-made and a high-quality machine.
I look forward to summer this year, knowing that this Toshiba 14,000 BTU Smart Portable Air Conditioner with Dehumidifier and fan is going to keep us cool and comfortable!

This air conditioner was shipped to my home and when I found it on my porch I was mad. The box had been resealed just about everywhere and was quite damaged (see picture). I am happy to say that when I unpacked the air conditioner I found it undamaged and in good working order. The first thing I like about this unit is that it's good looking and well made. It moves easily on my hardwood floors and is very quiet. One thing I'm wondering about is emptying the water that collects, it comes with a hose so it can drain into something like a floor drain - but I don't have a floor drain in my bedroom. Unfortunately, I can't tell you what the solution is as I haven't had to empty it yet.

Works great, but requires a lot of space. Despite the claim on the box that this unit is “light and mobile,” the box also admits it’s just shy of 80 pounds! Good thing it has wheels, otherwise you could forget about it being mobile. In fact, it’s not very mobile once you hit sort of plush carpet.
Nevertheless, I got this unit because I live alone, and it bugs me that I cool the entire house when I’m occupying just one room, whether I’m spending the day in my home office, or in my bedroom at night. I’m hoping to see a reduction in my electricity bill, since I live in the desert Southwest. We had a sampling of the coming heat last week, and it worked great. It’s about as loud as a window unit air conditioner, but when I found it interfered with a phone call, having a remote control to easily turn it off is a definite plus. (I sleep with a fan on for white noise, so the only thing that bothered me was when it shut off, which woke me.)
Setting it up is pretty easy. As I mentioned, it requires space both at the sides and rear. It doesn’t just fit in a corner. The exhaust hose is about 6 inches diameter and flexes like a dryer vent hose. It attaches to a panel that slides to expand to fit a window either horizontally or vertically. I can't comment on the dehumidifying feature because I live in a very dry area.
Other than the size, space, and weight, for a place that lacks A/C I don’t think any of that will matter to you. It beats blowing a fan over a bucket of ice.

You want remote control of your AC unit? Yep - there's an app for that! The best feature of this unit is the Wi-Fi capability. It can connect to your home network and there's an app that lets you control the time you want it to come on, what mode to operate in (AC, Dry, Fan, Auto), fan speed, etc. You can even set the temperature for each hour of the night that you want the system to operate at! The unit can cool an area of about 400 sq. ft. Since I'm writing this review as snow is falling, I wasn't able to do any performance testing but I was impressed with the amount of air that it moved when I powered it up. It's a bit loud at high speed for my taste but if I had it in a bedroom, I'd enjoy being cool!
What I take exception to is calling it "portable". Yes it has wheels and is easy to push but the exhaust hose connects to a window slider (adjustable from about 26.5" to 48.5") that fits into an opening with foam insulation to prevent cooling loss and insect penetration. There's also a security bracket that can be screwed in place to prevent the window from opening. The next consideration is what to do with the condensate from the unit. Because I was raised in the deep South, I know how much dripping can occur in humid climates! There is a pan under the unit that can be emptied when the unit senses that it is full but I plan to secure the hose to a small bucket and let it drain there. If I were to move, I'd certainly take it with me, so maybe the "portable" description is accurate in that sense.
Assembly is very easy and if you don't have a smartphone or a home network, fear not! You get a remote control that lets you make yourself comfortable! ***Before you buy, be sure that the opening of your window is between 26.5" and 48.5"***
A very good portable air conditioner. It come with smart function. Like it a lot.
