This is a good room air conditioner, not perfect, but a good value. The installation directions are not clear enough. I recommend 2 able bodied people for installation. I used a handyman,and it took an hour. The loudness when the fan is on high may pose a problem to some people. I use the machine at night only, so I keep the fan on low, which is a much quieter setting. My biggest complaint is the operations panel and the hand held remote are black and so that if you should change the setting you will have to turn on a light. A better design would be all L E D for the unit and some sort of low light in the remote, maybe a switch of some kind. Anyway, this unit cools beautifully and that is the main matter. The listed price, for 8000 BTU's is very reasonable. It is well packaged and is easy to put in a small car, so you won't have to pay for delivery. The box has durable straps for carrying it inside. I like it's power.
My wife and I purchased this unit to replace a 5200BTU unit from GE. The unit is easy to lift and place in the window. It comes with a nice remote as well which has a good range on it. The controls are simple and easy to use too.

It cools very well for being in a large area. The fan noise is very loud. We usually run it on low when we are in the same room. We would not recommend it for a bedroom as it is to loud to sleep. The remote control is great and works from quite a distance. We have the exact unit in a 6000 btu in our bedroom that is much quiter

Very powerful and COLD for it's size. Cools quickly and efficiently. Only gave it 4 stars because it's pretty loud, even on low setting. For the size of the room I am cooling (13X16) , I don't really need to put it on a higher setting. If you are cooling a larger room and require silence to sleep, this one's not for you.
