    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 !!!!!!

    I use it to cool a 345 square foot bedroom/bathroom. {8,000 BTU Model}. It barely runs at all. Also my electric bill has dropped from when we were using a GE window AC.

    Installation took longer than I hoped (about an hour) but after I was confident all the cracks were sealed it was ready to test. The unit functions very well and cold ,it cooled down my bedroom to a nice 70 degrees in about 40 minutes for about 350sf seems good to me. Have no use for the Wi-Fi stuff but a dependable a.c. Is what I want , so with this inverter tech it's going to be interesting to see how it holds up but as it is right now it's very nice, I like it.

    If you struggle to sleep at night with a regular window AC, get this one. It really is 42 dB, I measured it for myself. I'm a light sleeper and this AC allows me to actually sleep while it is running. The install took my husband and I an hour and we watched the video rather than the instruction manual. The visual was more helpful. Having done it once, it wouldn't take as long the next time. I did put some black felt on either side of the unit to block out the daylight and for privacy since the blind only goes as far down as the top of the unit. The unit cools well and you can turn off the sound for the buttons as well as the LED display. We think so highly of this that we're considering a new one for the living room so we can actually hear the tv with the AC on.

    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.

    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.
