    Bought this air conditioner May 21, 2021. Loved it! Until two ago when it died on me. No longer is blowing cold air. So disappointed and of course only one month out of it's year warranty.

    Picked up this 8k btu for our bedroom after our central air became inoperable. I needed quiet ac operation, so i purchased an inveter style window unit. I did some reading and found the midea had the best price available. Completely blown away on how quiet and efficient this unit is. Watch a you tube vid for installation tips . Directions plus a vid help the overall installation process. The product is a modern looking design with swinging louvers and a pretty nice remote. More light enters the room because of the U shape design. One person can install the 8000 with no problem.(50 lb lift). I find that the temp reading on the display to be a few degrees higher than actual room temp., just compensate for the difference and all is fine. Beautifully quiet and powerful enough to easily cool an average size bedroom or living room. If your in the market for a window ac,definitely look at the Midea lineup. They are a bit more costly than the traditional window shakers because of the inverter technology. If you need quiet operation and efficiency,then the midea inverter ac is just the ticket for summer heat. Very glad i made this purchase while i contemplate my central air repairs.

    The air conditioner fit right in the window and the bracing that comes with it are super sturdy. The air conditioner puts out super cool air and is very quiet.

    I've been a refrigeration technician for 30 plus years, I've installed and repaired just about every type of air conditioning/ refrigeration system available at one point or another. Two years ago I picked up 2 of the 8,000 btu for my cottage that's just over 600 sqft built in the 50's and I'm pretty sure there no insulation in the walls or if there is it's no longer doing its job. After owning several different manufacturers, sizes and types of cooling systems throughout my life these are hands down the best money I've ever spent on an Air conditioning system. I put one in the livingroom and one in the kitchen and the bedroom is in-between them, I've been able to get the entire place down to 64' during a couple high 90's during the day and low 80's at night with high humidity 3 plus days in a heat waves here in Boston, Ma. I usually set them at 70 to 72. The rule of thumb is if your central a/c unit has your house 15 to 20 degrees lower than outside then it's running fine, so with that said if it's 98' outside high humidity and inside is only 78' but you have it set at 72' it's actually running fine and doing the best it can given the situation. These Midea U window shakers are the best hands down for capability and noise, I can even hear my neighbors window unit running while sitting on my couch there so quiet. They're penny's on the dollar to run which is the best part about them and if I needed to I could hang beef in my place they get it so cold. They already paid for themselves and I highly recommend them to everyone who asks me what system would I recommend or install in my own place. There should be a shooting star rating for products that are above and beyond their competition because these systems are out of this world for value, capability and quality! But don't take my word for it find out yourself you'll be happy you did.... From Rick, a licensed refrigeration technician with 30 plus years experience. Thank you Midea!!

    Just incredible that after installation when this unit is on I could actually hear the birds outside! Cooling is amazing and it's sorcery that you can feel the breeze across the room. Purchased and returned two "Ultra Quiet Series" last year because the quiet was obnoxious. Looking forward to a chill, zen-calm and enjoyable summer now! Thank you!

    My main comment in regards to this AC unit is WOW! This one replaced our older LG that had been in place for I guess 7 to 10 years. It was pretty noisy. Install on this one is pretty easy, but READ the instructions. It comes with a window sill bracket that has feet against the outside wall so you can set the level, and it does not require any additional support. It also comes with enough spacers and rubber seals so you don't need to hit the hardware store. It has a feature to allow the window to open or close, but I did not use it, don't want any burglars poking around. It needs a wall outlet, 15A I would guess. I saw one review that says it can't be used with a GFI, but that's what we have, and it's perfectly happy with it, so I don't know what their problem was. What does the unique U shape give you? I'll tell you, almost absolute silence while it's running. I had to go outside and listen to the compressor just to make sure it was running. This is one unit that will not bother your ability to sleep! In the default mode the fan is allowed to operate over a wide range of speeds, so when first on it's at fast speed, then as the room cools, it slows down, and it gets whisper quiet, amazing. If it gets too cool, it will even stop and wait for a bit before it whispers some more. Absolutely GREAT!

    It was used on two (2) different occasions last year in our spare bedroom and now it will not run. I called customer service and the gal told me it was out of warranty by over a month and because I needed to use an extension cord that that would also make it out of warranty. So for over $350.00 I was was able to use it twice last year and now it will not run !!!!!!
