    Apr 13, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: None!!
    Cons: Too many!!

    Summary: WHAT'S THE 411 ON THIS UNIT? When I first got this unit almost two years ago in the summer of '05, I thought that it would be the answer to my problems with the scorching hot summer heat in the living room. I thought that I'd be able to sit ... read more

    Pros: Cool if you are right on top of it.
    Cons: Waste of Electricity, overrated, poor construction, poor venting.

    Summary: Opened box and set up the unit. I couldn't wait to get my garage workshop cool. I set it behind me and ooooo I was cool. I had it blowing on my back and should have gotten froze out. Nope. it just barely blows cold enough to to cause a chill. But ... read more

    Pros: Easy to move, Can be used where a window unit can't
    Cons: Loud, Water tank clumsy to empty

    Summary: I've had this unit for two summers now and have done a couple things to make it easier to drain, and optimize the cooling. To make the draining easier, I have this unit up on some plastic crates about 5 inches off the floor and feed the drain tube ... read more

  • Great Idea, Poorly Executed

    Jul 18, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Strong and efficient
    Cons: Self-evaporative function works poorly and drainage is impossible.

    Summary: I've always wanted an air conditioner that I could move from room to room and cool only where I am. I had never seen a portable air conditioner before and thought this would be perfect for me. However, this is an item with great potential but with one ... read more

  • It works for me

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cools a small room down to a level that makes it possible to continue thinking.
    Cons: Not as powerful as a window AC.

    Summary: I bought this one used on craigslist, cause I read various reviews on epinions and other websites and wasn't sure that these portable machines actually work. I've had it for a few weeks and can say only great things about it. Indeed it doesn't cool ... read more

  • GREAT LITTLE A/C UNIT

    Feb 17, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: High efficiency rating but low wattage consumption, unit cools down well.
    Cons: Heavy to lift to drain water tank and is not self evaporating in high humidity.

    Summary: Bought (2) of these for hurricane season. I bought this model because of its high efficiency rating and low wattage consumption. Appliances and generators are rated with starting or surge watts and running watts. This unit requires about 2000 watts or ... read more

  • big and loud!

    Pros: built quality, low power consumption, strong fan if that's what you prefer.
    Cons: overrated BTU, very loud, big footprint, overpriced, no auto-off fan, water leak, draining needed.

    Summary: Just received this unit yesterday, it is much bigger than I'd expected. The windows kit is a joke, I bought much better and rigid foam (Foamula brand)from Home Depot, they're pink in color but only cost $6, very easy to cut to fit your windows. I use ... read more

    Pros: Very quiet operation. Excellent cooling for a 350 sq. ft. room.
    Cons: Needs to stay in vicinity of where exhaust hose vents.

    Summary: I purchased the Sunpentown 1210E model to cool a 3rd floor home office in a Townhouse. This floor becomes extremely hot in the summer due to the heat having no way to escape, and the central AC unit is not strong enough to provide the cooling. I needed ... read more
