Pro Perfect for dorm rooms
This compact unit will fit very well in small spaces like a small bedroom or a dorm room. The 8000 BTU cooling power will easily chill up to 250 sq. ft. spaces. The unit itself is very compact and lightweight, so it’s easy to store when you don’t need it and easy to move around, thanks to its casters.
Pro Doesn't need supervision
Once you have set it up, you can leave the unit to work autonomously. It has a built-in thermostat, so you can just set the desired temperature that the room needs to be chilled to. The continuous drainage feature allows you to connect a hose to the AC unit and drain the condensate away from the unit, so it doesn’t need to be emptied from time to time. If there's a power failure, the unit will automatically turn itself on once the power is restored.
Pro Quiet operation
The unit doesn’t produce a lot of noise. The maximum you will get is about 54 dB, which can be compared to a regular conversation.
Pro Purifies the air
The unit has two washable air filters that collect large dust particles from the air.
Pro Fire resistant housing
The unit is built from fire resistant PVC, so you don’t have to worry about potential fires if something goes wrong with the unit.
Weighing only 50 pounds, it’s one of the lightest portable AC units on the market.
Pro Can be programmed with a timer
This unit has a timer that allows setting when the unit needs to turn on and off. With this, you can set the AC to turn on before you return to your home so that the air is already cooled when you arrive.
Con Can’t handle large areas
The unit isn't meant for large spaces, as it only has 8000 BTU of cooling capacity.
Con The manual could be better
The manual that comes with the unit is very poor and hard to understand.
Con Awkwardly placed display
The display is placed on the top of the unit, making it hard to see from a distance.
