Great product, fair price, so far excellent performance. Highly rated by Consumer Reports and me!
Easy set up, fits new replacement windows in older home. (1920 era). Not too heavy to lift.
Reviews by prior purchasers accurate, used their opinions to influence purchasing this unit. No disappointments.
Happy with Site to Store option, online and local store.
This A/C unit works great. The energy saving features are a wonderful plus, the remote works great, and it was simple to install! I cool my 1400 square foot with this little cooler so it's somewhat overwhelmed on hot days, but overall I'm more than satisfied. I would highly recommend this unit.
There are two items to note: this unit is quite loud regardless of fan speed, and the user's manual is rather sad and lacking in description. If neither of these are an issue then get this unit for sure!
If you need a powerful unit that is of the smaller window-mount standard size and don't want to spend too much, this is it. My room is 175 square feet and this is about right to keep it cool in Los Angeles heat (old house, no insulation). It will keep things cool all day, but takes a few hours after being started to drop the temps. Mine is mounted on its side in a vertical window (not intended for this purpose, but it works exactly the same, just make sure the water condensation drains away from the house and does not pool inside the unit).
-Quiet AC compressor (not audible over fans)
-Remote control (great range!)
-Timer for when to turn on
-Air ionizer means no nasty sweat-sock smells from the evaporator or stale air in a closed room.
-3 fan speeds
-Power saving mode shuts off fans most of the time when not needed
-Keeps the room cool all day long
-No bad vibrations, rattles, or other imbalanced noises
-3 fan speeds are medium, loud, and louder. It moves air, but why does it need to be so loud?! Needs a quiet mode.
-Packaging is horrible, only a few small chunks of foam at the corners. My unit was dented but works, so I didn't want to wait for a replacement one to ship.
-Ionizer setting must be activated every time you turn it on (also cannot be turned on via remote)
-Screen filter access door is clunky and will not open all the way for easy cleaning
-Takes too long to cool a hot room when first turned on (no different from other units, I would guess)
-Timer is too dumbed down. Needs a real thermostat that allows hours of daily operation, but this will do.
The unit cools quite well, was easy to assemble and is easy to operate. The filter is easy to remove for cleaning. The directional vents are pretty limited and the unit is quite noisey, which most window units are. Overall the unit is quite adequate for it's intended purpose. With the use of ceiling fans the unit is able to keep a small 2 bedroom home quite comfortable.
I have been checkinig online review sites and Consumer Reports reviews for mounths. Although this was the second choice for C/R , If you are on a budget like most of us , This is the perfect unit. Almost no shipping fees to home( none for store pickup) . A little louder than I expected but on energy saver and auto fan you get use to it quickly. Installed myself in about 15 mins, Good manual detail.
Ordered on Thursday, was at my front door the next day via UPS.
Installed the unit, and find that it is easy to operate, and the performance is more than what I had expected for the money.
Would highly recommend this unit, as well, buying from Walmart.
This air conditioner is VERY loud. I had to return it because it was ALWAYS loud. It didn't matter if you were in AC-low, med., high, or in FAN- low, med., high; it sounded exactly the same and it was extremely loud! Also, it didn't turn off when it reached desired temperature. The remote was confusing and the manual had poor directions.
Love this one too. Fully automatic, keeps the temp you set without running continuously to save energy.
Easy installation...one person can do it. Quiet, and no rumbling when condenser comes on and off.
Great value..energy saving appliance. Thanks Walmart...best price on internet on the 8000 and the 12,000..I am cooling my 900sq ft home with only these two!
I'm very pleased with this purchase. It cools my dining room and living room with ease. I keep a fan blowing for better circulation (though it really isn't necessary) so even the kitchen gets cooled. I like the timer feature very much.
I am pleased with my air conditioner, except that it is very loud, even on low.
This product was very economical. It cools very well but ... definitely purchase some ear plugs or ask guests or family members to speak up because it is VERY noisey. Small price to pay for the cooling. Definitely a good purchase for the money.
The only complaint was the order processing time. It takes two days and when you pay for overnight delivery you are not really getting it overnight even if you order early morning.
About product the fan is louder than some other air conditioners but it is good for me cause I have a loud neighbor above me.
The remote is cheap plastic and doesn't seem like it will last long. Also should be simpler it is a remote after all. The Air vents in front that you can move are a pain to point in the right direction.
Overall the air conditioner it is very well put together and easy to install.
This air conditioner is very, very loud when on. In order to sleep at night, I have to turn the unit off. Very disappointed with this product and wish I would have kept my old unit.
This unit is louder than the 20 year old unit it replaced.
I like the remote. It's energy star rated. I hope to save some money. Haven't had it long enough to find out. It cools my 12'X16' bedroom great.
Installed into window in 5 minutes and within
10 minutes the southend with 3 bedrooms
was cool. Great product, cools very effectively,
no built in thermostat shutdown. It's on or it's
off. A little loud but the cool air is worth a little
air conditioners were damaged when i rec. them. they were shipped site to store
If you want an air-conditioner (?) that sort of cools, but not to the temperature you've asked it to go down to and you want an air-conditioner that does not reduce humidity one bit, but does the opposite and sends in humidity on sunny days and an actual mist on rainy days, then this is for you.
It's horrible and the lowest fan level is so loud it gives me a headache.
This unit really kicks out. My living room gets so hot it is unbearable in the summer. We couldn't enjoy it in there. Not this yr. Within about 10-15 minutes it lowered the temp greatly. I went out and came back and had to raise the temp because my son was cold. I was so happy I ordered another for my bdrm so I can give my son mine. This time I got 5,200 btu because its a smaller room and the price is better. BUY IT!!!! You will not be disappointed. I've never reviewed anything but I had to let ppl know how much I love this ac!!
great-cools instantly-remote who needs a remote ?you do its amazing,you can lower temp,fan control 3 speeds,and use energy saver which means set at 64 degrees and at 64 it shuts off and at 65 it turns back on-returned 2 units this summer glad i spent the extra hundred for this one--note you will have to clean filter out once a month
Frigidaire - the name has for many decades meant
EXPECT HIGH QUALITY - and expect it to do a job
others often DO NOT. And the name still means YOU
bought a good one! It puts out cold air just as my
old FRIGIDAIRE (ten years old) did. You walk into
the room and there's some real serious cold going on. The HSpeed fan really moves the cold air AWAY from the air conditioner - and that's WHY the whole room gets COLD. They mean business about anything they manufacture. Jack
