Rated 1 out of 5 by Not for your non-airconditioned dorm room So, I bought this air cooler with the hopes that it would take the air and cool it off, as the name implies, but it didn't work. Not only did it not cool the air, but even the fan function was terrible. I wouldn't recommend it to a college student. Although economical for our budgets, it doesnt work. It was a waste of my time and effort. With water and ice, it did very little to help cool the air (not even a few degrees). It probably even created more heat and filling it up with water takes FOREVER.....my advice....if you can't get a dorm with a/c....move off campus because cooling products are more trouble than they are worth! 09/15/2007
Rated 4 out of 5 by Better than I expected Works better than expected. Really does cool down. A good alternative when you can't have A/C. 08/14/2007
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Evaporative Air Cooler This personal cooler is easy to setup and use. No refrigerant, no exhaust. Just works with water and ice. Great when use in a small office or bedroom. Love the remote control and timer features. 08/07/2007
Rated 4 out of 5 by use with works best when used with an air coditioner. usually lowers the temp by 10 additional degrees 08/29/2008
Rated 3 out of 5 by Well If you are looking to be cooled off do not purchase this product. I was able to find a $30 fan that felt the same as this product. Waste of money. Did not keep me cool at all. 08/05/2008
Rated 1 out of 5 by Didn't do the trick! We bought this to cool down our baby's room a few degrees since it gets hit by the hot summer sun all morning long, but it really didn't do the job for us. 07/29/2008
Rated 5 out of 5 by is what it is This is a fine working evaporative cooler that has worked well for us for a year. It works when the humidity is less than 30%, better less than 20%. Yes, it is a slight challenge to fill, but that is a surmountable challenge. 07/22/2008
Rated 1 out of 5 by Junk A $15 fan cools a room much better than this item. Even with ice packs it does not produce cool air. We live in a dry climate and used it in a small bedroom. Did not work and we returned product after first night. 07/22/2008
Rated 1 out of 5 by Overpriced-Underwhelmed Too much money for too little cooling. Product did not cool any better than a $10 fan. I would not reccomend this product to anyone. Returned it within a week. 07/21/2008
Rated 1 out of 5 by Item Returned Unfortunately, this product didn't put out any cold air, even when I added ice and the ice packs they provided. It was an expensive fan... so I had to return it to Wal-Mart. 07/14/2008
Rated 3 out of 5 by I have a Supentown model 608 at work, and it is a much better model. This model has ice packs which are nearly impossible to retrieve and you can't put ice cubes directly in the water. The tank is also too small. These units are still worth having, but not this model. 07/09/2008
Rated 2 out of 5 by not what i expected i honestly expected this product to work a lot better than what it does. you have to be sitting right next to it or right in front of it to feel any cool air and then the air is only cool if you load it down with ice. i could have bought a nice fan for half the price and got the same results. 09/14/2007
Rated 1 out of 5 by save your money Junk! Didn't work any better than a $15 table fan. 08/19/2007
Rated 3 out of 5 by Sunpentown Portable Air Cooler It works fine as long as you put ice in it and the temperature outside doesn't get above 95 degrees. Otherwise it isn't any better then the fans. 08/16/2007
Rated 2 out of 5 by Did not meet expectations I was quite disappointed in this product. It did not produce the cool air that I expected. I used ice cubes as suggested and the air never got any cooler. I would not recommend this product and instead will purchase a portable air-conditioner. 08/13/2007
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful Product This unit use water to cool. It sucks air through a wick saturated with water and the water evaporates into the air. So it will only cool the space in front of it and work best in a "dry" climate. Please research before you buy. This unit works great for us. 08/09/2007
Rated 2 out of 5 by Think Before You Buy Product itself works good. Unfortunately, engineers made it difficult to place water in it by using a 1/2" hole for the water and the water container does not open without disassembling entire unit to clean it and there is a very small compartment for ice. It's not user friendly at all. I don't recommend it. I ended up returning it as it was too difficult to use. 08/07/2007
Rated 1 out of 5 swamp cooler I bought the swamp cooler because I rent a small apt. and it has been very hot inside because it is older and the insulation is bad. I thought this would be safer than an air conditioner (because I live on the lower level) and would really help with cooling my place for me and my dogs. Well I tried it for 5 days used the ice packs and the ice and it worked really well if you stood right in front of it at only 1ft. away. I was very disappointed and returned the item. 08/03/2007
Rated 2 out of 5 by good for small enclosed area It isnt what I expected,the air output isn't very strong or cold. May work better if it were in a small room with the door shut....don't think its suitable for a livingroom or familyroom. 08/01/2007
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not worth it, just open the windows at night. Very disapointed with this product. There is a reason they don't use a block of ice and fan any more. Our house stays cooler by just opening the windows at night. It is also difficult to change the provided ice pack. 07/27/2007
Rated 1 out of 5 by Didn't lower temps I knew this product was not an air conditioner, but the claims say that it would lower the air temperature by upto 10 degrees. I didn't feel any difference while using it. I added ice and even regrigerated water and still no difference. 07/23/2007
