Nice and compact
5 Star Review   By Indium on Home Depot - Jun 4, 2013   

Very strong air conditioner. It doesn't take up a lot of room. Vents should have more flexibility to adjust airflow.

Excellent portable A/C
5 Star Review   By Mike on Home Depot - Jun 4, 2013   

I was a little skeptical after reading other customer reviews. Most gave me a 50/50 chance that I'd get these things to run without any problems. This manufacture had better than 80% favorable comments. I needed this model to cool off our family room since our central A/C broke down. Even though this model is not large enough to compare with our central air conditioner it makes the room comfortable plus at night we can move it to the bedroom and keep it on low. The dehumidifier function on it's own makes the room cool when it is vented to the outside.The remote is great because I put the A/C on the kitchen counter to maximize the cooling effect and I can't reach the controls. I've read reviews saying that these devices are noisy. I have an electric fan that is noisier and doesn't cool the room. It's a little noisier than when my central air would come on but I can live with the noise it makes. I've had this model for two weeks without any problems (knock on wood) running it nearly night and day. I am very pleased with this purchase and would recommend it wholeheartedly.

Totally dissatisfied, didn't work at all.
1 Star Review   By Ughh on Home Depot - Jun 1, 2013   

I just got my unit and the compressor did not seem to reduce air temperature one degree. Very Frustrating. Home Depo was very good to take it back at no cost for shipping it back and provided a full refund on the amount paid.

Good but room for improvement
4 Star Review   By wtwny on Home Depot - May 28, 2013   

We haven't yet had enough heat to put this unit to the test, but so far it seems well constructed, for the most part. The window attachment is indeed plastic, but it seems sturdier to me than others have reported and it fits either of the windows shown in my photo. I will invest in some insulated weather stripping for the window, however. I agree that the addition of vertical adjustment on the vent of this unit would make sense. It's a curious shortcoming, and I'm wondering if I'll need to place the unit on some pedestal or otherwise direct the airflow upwards to balance the room's air temperature.

Was Skeptical
4 Star Review   By Mona128 on Home Depot - May 27, 2013   

I purchased this A/C from HomeDepot online and had it delivered to my home. The box was super heavy for one person, but with two people (or a really strong person) it's manageable. The top of the box lifts right off, so set up is easy. The plastic window insert is way too short for my house's long skinny windows, so I just put cardboard and tape (ugh!) for now. Overall this machine does shoot out cold air. I've felt some portable a/c that shoot out warm/cold air, which is pathetic. Anywho, it does cool the house down about 15 - 20 degrees below outside temp. It was about 95 outside (Southern CA), and about 80 degrees in my house. I have this A/C positioned in the corner of my small living room - that has an adjoining hallway doorway and kitchen doorway. In the past my last house had different windows, so I was able to have a window A/C. Window A/Cs are way more efficient in cooling a house and in cost (*my opinion). If you have the choice (right windows) I would advise you to purchase and install a window A/C. These machines are easy to install, and overall cool better. However, this portable A/C does cool (just not as cold as some my hope for). It makes the room comfortable. I'm going to try to put a curtain in the doorways to the hallway and kitchen to hopefully make cooling easier. I'm looking into better ways to keep the cold air in, so it doesn't travel to other rooms. The A/C vents only go side to side and NOT up or down. This means the cold air only stays in the lower level of the room. What I did was put the A/C on a sturdy wooden side table with a yoga mat underneath. Now the air pushes out at a higher level, and the yoga mat helps dampen vibration noise. Also doing this makes it easier to take water out of the machine, since the hose is so low.

I did a lot of research to find the right one and I found it.
5 Star Review   By Denis on Home Depot - May 21, 2013   

We ordered it at the Home Depot store, and delivered there. The whole process took less than a week and was very convenient. Right after we received it we had a 104 degree day. It kept our kitchen, dinning room and living room at 79 degrees all day on low setting. Since then I have noted that it keeps the inside of the rooms at a fairly consistant 25 degrees cooler than the outside. It is as loud as I expected and the dishwasher is louder. It was very easy to set up, and looks fine where it is.

A/C Bliss
5 Star Review   By Lilybet on Home Depot - May 21, 2013   

This is my second portable A/C. Nice enough look, easy to install, cools quickly and is fairly quiet compared to my first one. I recommend foam insulation tape, or similar, when installing the discharge panel in window to reduce any air leakage. I love the fact that I don't have to haul buckets of water out as with my other A/C. A real back-saver. Haven't had to put it thru our 100 degree weather yet, but seems to put out enough that it will handle the load. Overall pleased at this time.

Works great.
4 Star Review   By JoeW on Home Depot - Nov 20, 2012   

Works great...only drawback is they said they included a 9 foot hose as standard and you could order a 5 foot extension; HOWEVER, my package only had the 5 foot hose by mistake so I really have to have my system close to the window to vent out the moisture.

Excellent unit.
5 Star Review   By Tom39 on Home Depot - Aug 29, 2012   

This unit has cooled our master bedroom quickly and comfortable. It is only as noisy as a motel A/C unit. But you must vent it out a window with the enclosed flexible hose for it to work properly.

Great unit well worth the money
4 Star Review   By DrummerGirl on Home Depot - Aug 8, 2012   

I am so pleased with this unit! In the past I had problems with a floor unit and was very hesitant on getting another but I am so glad I did. The level of cool air is fantastic and the features are great! The only improvement I would like to see is the vent not being adjustable. The unit has a slider for adjustment but it doesn't seem to matter which way you move it, the air flow always comes out of the middle of the vent. Everything considered, I would recommend this air conditioner for purchase.

5 Star Review   By Bill on Home Depot - Jul 31, 2012   

The only improvement that could be made, would be to the front louvers. they only adjust left to right. It would be nice to have them adjustable both up and down. Otherwise it's a good unit and preforms as advertized.

4 Star Review   By skippy on Home Depot - Jul 26, 2012   

Works really well cooling two 15x13 rooms.The exhaust hose is to short.Had to find another hose to make it work.Support from Wynther is terrible.Called twice still waiting 14 days later for call back.Delivery was quick with no damage.rated 4stars because of poor support.

4 Star Review   By Becky on Home Depot - Jul 26, 2012   

Overall we are satisfied with this air conditioner. We have a fairly large livingroom and having this a/c on makes it very pleasant in there. It's almost unbearable without it on. It has been an extremely hot summer and this unit has been very useful.

Excellent in all aspects
5 Star Review   By hello on Home Depot - Jul 3, 2012   

It works as stated and after three weeks there was no water to drain. We actually cool close to 750 square feet as the air conditioner is positioned so that much of the cool air goes down the second floor wall and into another room.

This is a great product, compact and quick cooling even in this past CT heatwave of 97 plus degrees!
5 Star Review   By Bees on Home Depot - Jun 23, 2012   

I am a senior citizen, female, and found this product easy to install with provided instructions For my window, the exhaust hose component with the window kit, needed some tape(or insulation strips) to cover any left over open spots where outside air could get through. Not a problem though, just normal I guess with any window unit. The unit at first sounded a little loud but I got used to it and don't even notice it anymore. I really love this little eco friendly unit that cools so quickly I have to raise the temp control as it gets too cold in the room!

4 Star Review   By jo56spirit on Home Depot - Jun 21, 2012   

Easy to install. Not as quiet as we were hoping, but it cools the bedroom so nicely that the trade-off is simply worth it. Great for a large room that needs additional help to keep humidity level and temperature in check. Don't know yet how energy efficient...hopefully as good as promised in the desciption.

Good and bad
4 Star Review   By Frosty on Home Depot - Jun 19, 2012   

This unit works great. There are a couple of "downsides". The unit is very loud. Additionally, the vent tubing is rather short so it is not very maneuverable. Actually, the power cord is pretty short too so if you have an outlet on one side of the room and the vent window on the other, it can be a challenge to situate the A/C properly.

Have not been able to connect per directions
1 Star Review   By Sharon on Home Depot - Jun 19, 2012   

Would not recommend at this time, as I haven't been able to connect & use it yet. Still waiting for a call back. I have had two other free standing A/C's and never had to use screws, as the pieces all fit nicely, and could be installed in a few minutes.

5 Star Review   By Arizonared on Home Depot - Jun 12, 2012

5 Star Review   By roxy on Home Depot - Jun 11, 2012   

Great for cooling a medium sized room. Love the timer. The only disadvantage is that it is noisy. It fit in my window very quickly with no problems, so I can move it to another window easily. Difficult to move to another level in the house because it is heavy, but possible.

Yep. Doesn’t get much better.
5 Star Review   By CaptreeAdvisory on Home Depot - Jun 3, 2012   

We have a huge loft space with high ceilings that doubles as an office. I work in an walled off area that doesn’t get central air and we were not allowed to install window units as this was supposed to be an upscale bldg.. Never heard of portable air conditioners until our electrician suggested one. Now this sits right next to the filing cabinet and the hoses is cleverly shielded by some file holders. It’s such a difference, I would normally dread the afternoons and a fan was too noisy to use while on the phone. This has been fantastic and cool. It only gets loud when I turn it on full for the first 10 minutes after it’s done with the initial cooling, it’s does a great job keeping the temperature constant. It’s humid where we’re at (Charleston) but I’ve only had drain this unit once in the past month. I can’t stop raving about this now that I’ve tried it.

Not cool enough for Florida
2 Star Review   By Sailgal on Home Depot - May 31, 2012   

Had high hopes BUT returning the unit today. Our bedroom is 17x13 w/ 9' ceiling and we have central AC but at night we turned the central up to 82 in the house, and put this on in the bedroom with bath and bedroom doors sealed, and the unit would not get the room below 76 degrees while set on digital temp of 61 (the lowest temp) we were hoping for a cooler temp for sleeping without having to chill the entire 2600 sq foot house which would be a mortgage payment elect. bill. It is not even the real summer here yet!! Noise level was fine, looked nice, and didn't mind the draining of water which wasn't too much each day, I put a tupperware lid under drain plug. Gonna try a 14000 btu fingers crossed!!

Good value A/C that kicks the heat
5 Star Review   By YardDog on Home Depot - May 26, 2012   

Price was reasonable for the brand and quality. Worked just as expected and was able to cool down our room really fast. No idea what the red dot in the center of the control panel does. Well built product that generates almost no condensation at all. That's a huge benefit where humidity can completely wreak havoc on A/Cs. Excellent item it all respects.

O.K.
3 Star Review   By KJM1 on Home Depot - May 22, 2012   

We purchased this A/C unit after our old long-suffering portable gave up the ghost. While we have central A/C in the house, it does not sufficiently cool the upstairs during the summer so we rely on a portable A/C to keep the bedroom bearable. It doesn't seem to cool as well as our old unit although it does make the room more comfortable than it would be without it. It is also very noisy. A great deal of condensation forms on the outside although I check frequently and haven't found any evidence of it dripping on the floor.

Gets the job done.
4 Star Review   By KidRondeau on Home Depot - Apr 17, 2012   

I don't have a lot of experience with room air conditioners. This one was purchased for my huge living room with no usable windows for a traditional A/C. I installed it just last week, and it seems to work pretty well. It's definitely a lot more comfortable in my living room now! I really want to put this thing through its paces by getting the room down to 68°, but my wife won't let me.

Good machine with design flaw
3 Star Review   By ArtfromNM on Home Depot - Oct 16, 2011   

Vents adjust right and left but not up or down. It blows straight out to cool the lower part of the room but not the upper part. When you stand up you feel the warm air above.

This product is the best one of these I have seen.
5 Star Review   By muchcoolernow on Home Depot - Oct 15, 2011   

I got this unit for my bedroom, which by design in my apartment is cut off from the living room a/c by a corner and a hallway. No cold air was getting in there. I did my research and I found this one. It works AMAZINGLY! I live in so/cal and the 100+ degree days are brutal, but this unit will cool my entire 300+ sq foot room in about 5-7 min on high then if I leave the door open, it cools the rest of the apartment too (800+ sq feet). The unit doesn't drip or leak, but can be a bit difficult to empty because the drip hole is level with the floor. I couldn't get a bowl in there, so i just put down a thick layer of paper towel and had it soak into there, which worked well. The only negative I can really say is that it can be a bit loud. I don't really mind but I can see if your a light sleeper and plan on having it on all night, I can see how someone might complain. Otherwise, it's a pretty amazing A/C

Wynter 12000 btu portable airconditioner
4 Star Review   By Pogopop on Home Depot - Sep 30, 2011   

The exhaust hose is not long enough to reach windows higher than 30" above the floor and the window insert has limited adjustment, it did not extend long enough to work in my window.

Doesn't cool if home is above 95 degrees
1 Star Review   By unhappy on Home Depot - Sep 27, 2011   

Replaced a 9,000 btu LG that went out after a year and this unit didn't even cool the room as much as the lower btu unit. The water needed to be drained at least twice a day in low humidity. Granted the temp was 110 degrees outside, but expected more. Even when the temp outside was lower, the room with this unit stayed at 95! It was set up to specs in the manual. Do not get this unit if you are in higher then 95 degree weather and it's a gamble if you are in lower!

satisfied so far
3 Star Review   By gnbouw on Home Depot - Sep 27, 2011   

We purchased the portable airconditioner for use during the heat. Since we have purchased it, we have not had any warm weather, so we have not really used it. We have tried the fan, speed, etc. and found it to run quietly. We just trust that next year it will work fine.

Not as cool as I hoped for.
3 Star Review   By Steve on Home Depot - Sep 6, 2011   

No more heavy lifting. Convenience is a plus. . Just not as efficient as my 10,000btu window replacement. Duct tape needed to hold the vent hose in place. Otherwise it easily would disconnect. No up/down fan direction. Only left/right.

Great AC
5 Star Review   By Christine on Home Depot - Sep 6, 2011   

I shopped around quite a bit online for the right AC for my apartment's living room. This one has exceeded my expectations. I have a large, open living room and it has no trouble cooling it, especially when I place an oscillating fan in front of it to better disperse the air. I don't mind the look of it (sleek, good design). Only negative feedback is that I had to construct my own makeshift window vent because my window was too tall which for some reason I did not anticipate. Overall, very satisfied with this AC and very happy I bought it!

Very pleased with the cooling effect and the eco-friendly features
4 Star Review   By LOTBR on Home Depot - Jul 10, 2011   

Very effective cooling for our older home. The only draw back is the installation into the window. The venting attachment into the window is lightweight plastic and will need modification to hold it in place and to provide a better seal when we install it again next season. Duct tape around the the plastic panel, as recommended in the instruction manual, did not seem like a good idea and we opted for foam strips instead.

Grrreat!
5 Star Review   By Lokeli on Home Depot - May 28, 2011   

I have only had this product for a week but I can truthfully say it is the best portable air conditioner I have ever had. I live in a building that doesn't allow window air conditioners that protrude outside. This is the first that didn't require emptying a bucket twice daily. I am impressed at how cool it keeps the room. Now if it just holds up through time, I'm perfectly happy.

Works but noisy
3 Star Review   By dan350zr on Home Depot - Mar 14, 2011   

I use it in my guest room which is about 250 sq.ft., only issue is it's very noisy. I know portal AC's are not going to be whisper quiet, it's just the nature of the beast, but out of the previous 3 portable AC units I have own this one is the loudest. That said, it does keep the room cool even on warm days.
