This air conditioner replaces one that we had for a while, so far it's cooling our living room, dining room & porch areas (open floor plan). Strong & quiet! Love it! Would only suggest that the installation process was a little easier, other than that it a great purchase for a powerful unit!
We actually purchased the 12,000 BTU version, but the installation procedure is exactly the same. I am writing this review mainly because I read a Two-Star review where the reviewer claimed the installation was a "nightmare". That reviewer also claimed that the installation took two people and six hours to complete! I don't mean to be critical of those persons' skills, but it took my son and me about 45 minutes to install the unit the first time - and at the beginning of each summer now I carry the unit up from the basement and install its case and main unit in about 20 minutes by myself (and I'm a tall, thin guy in my 50's). The weight difference and size difference between the 12,000 BTU and 15,100 BTU versions is negligible. The unit is fairly quite and cools well.

Was looking at a few 15k btu units from other big box stores, when my buddy suggested I check Sears since he has always had good luck with them. The price was right and my local store had some in stock. This unit is much lighter then my old Kenmore 11k btu unit. Installation was pretty easy, took two of us about 40 mins to get it into the window. My only complaint is the angled brackets that support the unit against the house need to be larger. I have an older brick home, like most in my neighborhood, and the brackets don't sit quite right. If the one side of the triangle bracket was about an inch or two longer it would sit much better. Also the expanding panels for the window have a few gaps where it attaches to the unit. This, and a few other places I will need to seal up. Chances are I will leave this in over the winter, so I worry about drafts. This unit is also very quiet compared to the old unit. I don't have to turn up the volume on the TV as much. The remote is a great feature, lets me adjust it from across the room. I don't like the way you adjust the air coming from the vents. I find it harder to get the air where I want it compared to the more old fashioned style. Overall, really nice unit and would purchase again. One of the competitors had a slightly better EnergyStar rating, but I don't think it will affect my bill all that much in the long run.

This Air conditioner really does the job to keep us cool in our bunk room in Port Oconnor, Texas. We added a bunk/sleeping room inside the barn at our fishing camp in Port Oconnor but no one wanted to sleep in it because the air conditioning unit was noisy and would not keep the room comfortable. The new AC from Sears does an excellent job with cooling and runs very quiet and plugs into our 115V wall plugs. I could not be happier.
I was very nervous at first that I was going to need to wire my house to use this air conditioner and it does work with the regular outlet. 115 volt. I thought i was going to need two air conditioner to cool my house but all I needed was this one air conditioner and very cool in the house and even in my kitchen which large. Very please with it.

This air conditioner is powerful. I just moved into a vintage building and knew I'd need a power house air conditioner to meet my needs. It requires only a regular plug (which is fabulous) and is very energy efficient compared to the in-wall units I am used to having in my apartments. Install took us (me and a mechanically-inclined friend) 1.5 hours. The instructions are somewhat difficult to follow. Even more cumbersome is identifying the correct bolts/screws for each part. Some of the pictures show pointed screws (wood screws) but the correct part is a machine screw (with no pointed end). We had to reread and double check the instructions for every step multiple times. Also, the figures showing each step are lacking (and some steps which would warrant a figure have none). Read the instructions at least twice before you begin! The machine, itself, is much quieter than I was expecting. It's like a light fan for a little background noise. It works like a dream. I have this installed in my 700 square foot apartment and it really cools the place down! Another great thing about this unit is that it is not installed like the usual window air conditioners that you are used to. Usually you just slip it into the window and hope that it holds while you secure everything around it. This one comes packaged inside its housing. You then pull the air conditioner out of the housing (it's like a big white cage-like contraption) and set it aside. You install the housing first, making sure it's secure and at the correct level. Then, 1.5 hours later, once you have it secure, you slide the heavy part into the "cage" and voila! I felt much more comfortable installing this than any other A/C unit that I have installed before. Apart from the mediocre instructions, this thing is a winner! Also, do keep in mind that you may have to improvise and reinforce the unit your own way in case the included support brackets do not work with your window. I live in a brick building and the support brackets were not compatible with my specific window sill. But do not skip the reinforcement! This thing is heavy (100+ pounds). I used some wood that was lying around and cut some supprt beans to screw in where the included brackets would have gone. Do your due diligence and don't just trust your window to hold it all in.
While I realize we are trying to cool a large area, this unit doesn't have the power to do the job well. Our old unit was the same size and did a much better job. Also this unit fails miserably at directing the air side to side. I am disappointed.
