Pros: it was 98 degrees outside, our old air conditioner on high max cold kept our bedroom at an uncomfortable 83 degrees. I put this nice Sharp unit in and within a couple hours on low settings it had our bedroom down to 70 degrees. I love that it only weighs 57 pounds, I credit that to the good use of styrofoam in the construction. You can't hear the compressor kick on and off and it doesn't make the lights dim like the old one. I read the other reviews and I have to say ...
Decent Air Conditioner, doesn't seem built well for longevity

Summary: For a top rated consumer reports unit, I was expecting better construction. The duct from the cooling unit blowing into the house is made of only styrofoam. You can see the daylight through it as it is fairly thin. The gaps on the side leak air too. I sealed the unit from the outside with some duct tape.
Pros: *Powerful *keeps the room cool *thermostat *remote
Cons: *Gaps in the accordion part to fill the window *Cheap Styrofoam structure
