    Short life

    By: NM on 11/21/2013

    Bought this unit in February 2013 to replace a unit that broke in 10 months thinking it was defective. Worked great every day in our tiny office. But by November... it broke! That's 2 Frigidaire units to last less than a year!

    Look Elsewhere

    By: Unhappy on 9/3/2013

    VERY unhappy with my purchase! It's LOUD even on the low settings. If I didn't already install the two similar units I bought I'd bring them back.

    Great Unit

    By: SBYJB on 7/29/2013

    Just replaced a 20 year old unit with this model. Cooled the entire living room and den! The vents don't really matter as long as it blows out cold air and it does. Not very loud compared to other AC units I have owned. Wonderful AC for the money.

    very noisy

    By: Susan on 7/19/2013

    Very noisy even on low, and the eco-feature did not work properly. I also agree the paddle-type fins that you have to turn a dial to adjust air direction were annoyingly fussy. And at night you can't see most of the face to be able to change fan speed or temp. etc. without using a flashlight. It "chattered" so much I couldn't sleep - the manual says this is normal for the new high-efficiency compressors, but I think they know people will complain about that so they put that in to deflect complaints. This went back to the store within 30 days of purchase. We purchased a different brand and it is so quiet I can't believe the difference - and no chattering! This is just an inferior product.

    Not worth the effort

    By: Shellie on 7/9/2012

    It would of been a great deal, but like the review before me said the vents are so cheap that it isn't worth the time to set them to where they work to cool the room..It makes it to where it only cools the immediate area.

    It cools ... but ...

    By: Redsitck Rider on 3/25/2012

    The wall that separates the inside air handler and the outside exchanger coils is made of styrafoam. And it isn't coated - you can practically see through it. Unbelieveable!! Definitely not made to last as this will surely degrade. If I had know this, I would have bought something else.

    Very good value

    By: janus6000 on 8/2/2011

    The only bad thing about it is are the unbelievably stupidly made auger wheels to direct the air flow. A huge amount of time needed to get them satisfactorily positioned and then it's not worth the effort moving them. I also don't understand why this model couldn't be made with the fresh air vent option. But on the whole it does its job excellently.
