      MAW08V1QWT User Manual version E - 09 - 2020 (PREVIEW08) 1.)  Support Bracket does not fit standard Chicago brownstone and greystone building windowsills.  Please see the attached illustration. The Angled Support Arms are neither long enough to clear the exterior stone windowsill and be level, nor short enough to rest upon it and be level. 2.) Page 17, Fig 8, B, "...so that it is level or tilted 1/4 bubble downwards..."  - Which? Level or tilted downwards?  If either, might it make more sense to state, "...so that it is level or tilted no more than 1/4 bubble downwards..."? 3.) Anti-Tip Bracket, page 19 - The vertical track in my window measures more than 1/2", however the brackets would not fit within it because the brackets do not align with it when positioned such as to allow the window to close within the U trough.  The two brackets are identical (or were in my product) and the only way for any end of the bracket to fit was to invert one and install it upside down in the right side (when facing the front of the air conditioner from in front of it).  There was no way to install the opposite one such that it would fit and allow the window to close. 4.) The illustration of the Anti-Tip bracket is not consistent with any end of the bracket, no matter how oriented. 5.) The U trough is not wide enough to allow me to close my screen in addition to my window.  6.) The tops of the side arm hinges are not flush with the top of the U trough. The tops of the hinges are lower, resulting in a gap when the window is closed to the top of the U trough.   7.) The rear of the unit often makes a high-pitched noise when running, like lots of crickets.  It's still quieter than a standard air conditioner, but this high pitch noise is an annoyance. 8.) Air Conditioner does not seem to do a very good job of dehumidifying the air. 9.) The lights on the unit are very bright, so much so that they are difficult to sleep with.

      This unit is super quiet, i suppose because of the U shape build, and is keeping our 10x10x10 room very cool so far this spring!

      Well the assembly wasn't too terrible for my particular setup was more difficult than it should have been with a little engineering of their brackets could have been better but it's okay nothing I couldn't work around. As it is very quiet the fan doesn't blow very hard even on high which was a big disappointment I have the 8000 BTU unit. I bought this size in accordance to measuring my master bedroom so I'm hoping it keeps it cool enough but it seemed to take a long time to cool off due to the fan that pushing it very hard. One of the big drawbacks is that without the side curtains on a traditional air conditioner makes it very hard to pull the shade down as you will see on the sides of the air conditioner because the shade doesn't conform around the AC unit. Neat idea but could have been engineered better.... coming from an engineer. If i could have picked "would you recommend .maybe" that would be my answer

      Nine times quieter sounded like hype, but it's true. This thing is literally about as loud as the cooling pad for my laptop. It's quite remarkable. If you have to do window units, you won't do better than this one.

      It is so much quieter then a normal window air conditioner! It gets super cold I have to turn it down half way through the day! That's with the kids running in and out all day letting the cold air out the door! It's easy to install and I didn't need any extra support for it like the basic air conditioners!

      Air conditioner is a very nice design bottom frame a little weak would like for frame to be more rigided, love app connects fine once set up depends on wifi connection on speed of response of change from phone to airconditioner, air cooling is actually colder than dial says i used a meter to check temperture display said 60 but meter says 52.9 degrees , compressor sound is next to nothing compared to other small ac i have heard and the tought of being able to close the window more close than other ac is a plus less area to seal off looks better pure white is a great color love the whole package.

      I cannot believe how quiet this AC window unit is in my room. It was easy to install. The bracket is a little long, but I read the directions and knew it would be. I absolutely love being able to close my window. Light comes through on the side of the AC, but it was an easy fix to cover. Completely cools my room and en-suite bathroom. The voice controls are a bit lacking, but I believe it's because the Alexa app is marginal at best and isn't a reflection of the AC unit. I have already order another unit for a family member and can't wait to surprise them. Well done Midea!!

      First, let's talk about install. This goes in nothing like your typical window unit, obviously. It's got a support that hangs out the back, and points to secure it to the frame. And your window can close over it, though not all the way obviously. There are dense foam blocks though that actually do seem to block outside noise. So anyway, install. It's different. The printed directions made no sense to me at all. They were skimpy and mostly pictures. Fortunately there's a video, with a qr code to take you to them. The video makes it easy. The only part I was left confused on was the center track piece. I wish that had gotten a close up. It took two people to install, and went fairly smooth. I don't know how long it took us, but it wasn't super long. And now that we've done it once I imagine we could do it again in minutes. So basically, watch the video. Can you actually open the window with this installed? Yes, yes you can. Ours is on the second floor and I feel quite comfortable opening my window. It feels very secure. Definitely an upgrade from our old unit. Form- it's pretty sleek looking, and you can turn off the display! I hate lights in my room so this is a huge bonus. Function: Yeah, definitely works. It cools my room in minutes, and will get it cold enough to satisfy even the hottest sleeper. Plus it takes care of humidity. My room is so comfortable now, and even the hall and bathroom and cooled. It's a little beast, and I haven't even tried lower temp settings on it.

      I bought this to help make my house cooler. The air conditioner in my house does not keep my living room at a good temperature. There is only one vent and it's on the far side of the room, and there is no ceiling fan. I installed this cooler and the room felt so much better instantly. I definitely recommend. It works great and isn't loud. I love it.
