Modern Connected A/C Unit
I read some indifferent reviews on this product but I found the unit to be modern, attractive and works great with the Wink home system. Unlike traditional A/C units the air output is from the top but is angled not straight up which gives a great overflow of cool air. Only one issue I came across related to the components included, there were two retaining strips which did not appear in the instructions. These actually slide down on either side of the unit to retain the screen, they are a very tight fit.

Stopped cooling during first season of use!
Purchased last July. Because of remodeling it took until this Spring to be installed. I love the idea, the app control, and the look. The noise doesn't bother me because its more powerful than my old unit. But now my old unit is doing all the work because this device no longer blows cold air. I am in the process of contacting Quirky about getting it replaced.

Best wi-Fi enabled AC
I've had two units for two years now and I am remarkably pleased with the performance and reliability of the unit and the integrated apps on my phone and Wink relay!

AC WORKED FOR ONE SEASON AND BROKE ON THE HOTTEST DAY.
BOUGHT IN SUMMER OF 2015. WORKED GOOD FORST YEAR. INSTALLED IT FOR SUMMER OF 2016 WORKED FOR 1 WEEK AND STOPPED COOLING REMOVED FRONT COVER AND FOUND ICE FORMING INSIDE AND THEN IT BRAKES OFF AND HITS THE FAN AND SHOOTS OUT OF THE VENT. AC NO LONGER COOLS JUS MAKES ICE INSIDE. WORST AC I EVER OWNED.

Had this ac for over a year it cools my whole apartment over 1000 square feet. On Eco mode electric bill has not increased too much.

Does the job, but wouldn't buy it again
A little late with this review, since I bought this unit 2 years ago. It works well enough to cool off my small bedroom and hallway. However, the display lights are so BRIGHT I have to tape multiple pieces of paper over them (like little flaps) so I can sleep at night. Considering part of the reason I liked this AC was its sleek design, I was pretty annoyed. App connected to the device but doesn't accurately represent the room temp or whether the AC is on/off (so you don't actually know if you're turning it on or off remotely, on your way home from work perhaps). If the box wasn't already tossed, I would have returned this AC.

Quirky went bankrupt Nov 2015 so how do get support?
I bought this unit from Home Depot online because it was a great price and thought the features were a good idea. I have literally turned this unit on 25 times since I bought it and it has quit cooling. Under normal circumstances I would return it and get it replaced but I am told they went bankrupt (I looked it up and it was well before I bought it) so no warrantee? I feel ripped off.

Broken after 2 years
Wasn't the best when it did work, and after 2 years the cooling function just stopped working completely

Great Air Conditioner!
We can put men on the moon but can't figure out how to build a quiet air conditioner. This one is the quietest I have ever come across and in every other way it is an excellent buy. I will be purchasing another one. You don't get the cycle noise of the compressor kicking in. It is an even hum. After a month, it learns how you use it and programs it self. It is a high quality appliance. A lot of thought went into making it. It is worth the price and has a lot of nice features. I recommend this air conditioner. I won't buy another brand after purchasing this one.
