This a/c unit did excede my expectations. It is a bit pricey, but it is worth it in my opinion. I got it to supplement the central air in my house for use in the hottest room (its normally 12 degrees hotter in this room). The room being my master bedroom. Anyhow it's powerful, cools down the room quickly and keeps it cool all night. I like the fact that you can set the thermostat at a specific temperature. It's about as noisy as a window unit. It says that it's portable, but it's only as portable as far as the exhaust tubes will stretch from the window.
The only negative (which is insignificant in my opinion) is with the remote control. If you change the temperature on the main unit - the remote control does not recognize the change. For example you change the main unit to 70 degrees, the remote does not know that and will still say 72 or whatever it was set at previously. I'm just being nit-picky about it. The remote control does work well except for that.
Also, the part that goes into the window is not all that great. I am going to get some insulation to put over it because there is quite a bit of air loss.
I chose a portable unit because the window is on the front of the house and I didn't want a window unit sticking out making my house look ugly. With this unit, you can hardly tell that it's even there when looking at my house from the street.
That's it, I hope that helped.
