I had to extend the hose as window is six feet off the ground, never use the remote but nice to have the option. The delivery should be more careful when delivering items. People paid for Music, i love my portable ac unit. However, i didn’t notice until we had it out of the box and set up in our window that the bottom is cracked, causing the supposed to be quiet unit to be a bit loud. I spent a little over 400 dollars for this and i’m annoyed with the care of the delivery carrier. I figured it be a headache or my job to prove the damage happened now that it is hooked up and in place. So, though, i am pleased with the product itself, i am not so much pleased with the carriers who delivered my package with directive to be careful on the box, fragile written on it with arrows p the noise level. I only gave one star due to the crack, which now causes the unit to be more noisy than originally supposed to be, otherwise, i am pleased with the amount of coolness and efficiency of this product. Okay, let me set the record straight. This ac unit is quiet. It is quieter than four other acs i’ve tried. I was sue torn on this unit, given the multitude of reviews mentioning how noisy it is seriously. People i’ve had four to five window ac units, and this is 100. The quietest one i’ve tried, including honeywell.
If you crank an air conditioner at full blast, it is going to make noise when the compressor engages it is unavoidable. I set mine at 68 degrees fahrenheit, and it is a okay for my medium bedroom at any hour. Consider it’s an air conditioner, not a fan. If you want something absolutely dead silent, then maybe opening a window or an internal home ac is for you, but for those with more realistic expectations. Here you go. This unit is very nice for the money. It has a very, very, very manageable noise level and plenty of mode slash controls to dial in. I can talk on the phone at a normal volume about four feet from this unit, at full blast with no issue it is built quite well and the color is exactly as pictured. It does not leak drip or have any fluids at all, leaving the unit. In my experience, the window bracket is quite usable and is thin enough that most diy ers can modify it if need be, mine fit perfect with the included extension. The hose attachment is adequate, but was a bit short for my original. I would advise soon to be owners to consider the one to two feet required between the back of the unit and anything behind it to account for the bend of the hose coming out of the back of the uni. Simply put the unit sticks out one to two feet from the wall. This ac unit seems to be healthy and working well: Music, oh boy, the remote it’s bad to be polite.
I really can’t put my finger on it, but the remote feels like something you’d get with a twenty dollars: rc car toy for a toddler, not a dollar for fifty plus appliance it’s. My only real complaint by the way, yes, that blue light, is kind of bright haha. In conclusion, i would recommend this ac unit, regardless of the dollar 100 ish more, it seems to be versus competitors. Truth be told. I haven’t had a single issue with it other than the hose being too short for my application and the cheapo remote hassle free, looks good works very well keeps my bedroom more than cool fairish price. What more can i say? I’M. A fan just wish. The remote was better haha, it is one of the best model. I tried from delonghi in comparison to other two series. I bought this unit in 2016 and still running great with a great compressor. I just received the ac today the box was intact, but one of the casters was broken off inside the box. I am working with delonghi to get a replacement caster. The ac seems to work great it’s quieter than my older, cheaper.
