I read the review prior to deciding on an ac unit, and I have to say I'm pretty pleased with this unit. It has no trouble cooling off my 1 bedroom duplex unit (approx 700sf), and I get better airflow/cooling when I am 'creative' with the fans. This is during the TX summer when temps get around 105 too, in a house that is mostly windows (not terribly energy efficient, albeit scenic!). Bottom line, the unit is fairly heavy, although I managed to install it into a 29" window without any help (very simple installation, although I personally would buy some additional 3/4" or better weatherstripping, some L-brackets, and more screws for a more secure install). I have only had it a day now, but it cooled off the house reasonably well on a 95 degree day, brought the temp down better than the existing (but not efficient) central unit--down to 75 degrees in one room, maybe 78 or 79 in the adjacent room, and approx 81 in the room after that. Noise-wise, I really cannot comment as it is the first window unit I've ever had or experienced, and yes it's a little loud, but that's entirely subjective and depends on where it is mounted in the house. I may re-write a review after I get my first electric bill though! :-)
