    I have run the AC continuously and my apartment never gets below 85 degrees. I am very disappointed and am unable to do anything because it is too hot. Too much money; does not perform per specs. Looking for a new machine that works.

    Thing is broke as soon as I opened the box, very disappointing. It just spits and error code, restarts, and that cycle continues on and on.

    I have my unit in a bedroom that opens into my living room in a very small 1B1BA place. It worked great for the first week or so, and has since lost fan and cooling power dramatically. I have cleaned the filter and examined other parts of the unit, watched tutorials etc. Very disappointed. At this point it can hardly cool my 12X12 (144 sq ft) room.

    I purchased the 12,000 BTU unit to cool the main level of our home, which when all the adjoining rooms are closed is less than 550 square feet. Even with relatively "mild" summer temperatures (80s), the unit was not able to cool the room below 73 even when running at its coldest temperature setting (60) with the fan set to max and the boost mode engaged via the app. One possibility is the fact that the space has an open staircase on one side of the room that leads down to the lower level, and the cool air may be traveling down here. Still, the fact that the unit is not able to cool the space even in these "milder" temperatures has me questioning whether it is advertised correctly, if I received a faulty unit, or if my space simply isn't compatible for this kind of unit. Definitely a bit disappointed by this unit.

    I have had this running and like someone else here mentioned, the unit doesn't seem to cool well above 80 outdoors. Not sure why with eco off, boost on, clean filters and clean grates. I would expect more from this 12K BTU unit, as my classic bedroom 8K BTU AC does far better (I know square footage matters - but the level of cool for the space is wildly different).

    The 12,000 btu unit will not keep rooms cool efficiently above a certain outdoor temperature. We've had it set at 73* most of the time and it did well. Turned off regularly, dehumidified when needed, etc. now that the outside temperature is reachin* the high 80s and low 90s the unit rarely stops running and will not cool below 73*. Our 8,000 btu units in the upstairs do not have this problem at all and keep the upstairs below 70* if we want them to before bed. I wish I had gone with a 10,000 btu unit or even two 8,000 for our first floor.

    It's a great unit, very quiet and efficient, and looks great too. But it's got one glaringly odd design choice that stands out, and makes this unit annoying to operate—the OK button on the remote. It's centered in the middle of a circle, giving it import and gravitas, the most important button on the remote. You'd think it would do what other OK buttons do—confirm choices, set the temperature. But no. Not this OK button. For some reason, pressing OK enters the unit into WiFi pairing mode, even if you've already paired it—disconnecting your phone from remote access, and locking the unit into a blinking "AP" mode, which can't be disabled unless you wait a long time or shut the entire unit off completely and power it on again. Heaven help you if you press it accidentally, because you'll be locked out of the controls until you power-cycle it completely, which is not healthy for a running AC compressor. It's a mind-bogglingly silly design choice that mars what is an otherwise excellent window air conditioner.

    I have a 'split-level' home, with bedrooms on the upper level, and no central A/C. Over the past 16 years of ownership, I've used a window unit in the master bedrooms west window and have had to clean out bird nests & debris from the sill every fall, to the point of the sill becoming unstable for further A/C use. Purchased this, placed in the south window, and with the glass down most of the way, will hopefully make the birds find a tree, rather than a window, otherwise more extreme measures will be taken...

    I like the aesthetic of it, and with the window closed it's super quiet when on low fan speed, almost inaudible. However, there's no way to force it to run on max. You can turn it down to 60, but the inverter always leans toward being too efficient and it never adequately cools my 350sqft place. It rarely uses max power, only when the sun is hitting it and it's over 90 out does it work at max. Right now it's 72 and cloudy outside but 75 inside, and it's only drawing 1/3rd of the power it's capable of. It does have the high pitched whine that others have mentioned, but my window and the fan noise seems to block most of it. It's actually a really loud whine if you're outside with it, I imagine my neighbors enjoy it. I have to turn off my AC if I want to hang out on my patio.
