  • Better products out there

    Aug 24, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Attractive design. Remote a plus.
    Cons: Too loud when compressor is running. Have to manually empty reservoir too often.

    Summary: I purchased the Pac9R model (comes with remote) to supplement the central air conditioning for a 3rd floor room. This 3rd floor becomes extremely hot during the summer months because the central unit isn't strong enough to cool it, and I needed something ... read more

  • A short-lived product

    Jun 25, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Does function as an air conditioner automatic condensation venting
    Cons: Expensive, noisy, hard to set up and adjust, and had chronic overheating problems.

    Summary: Bought this (actually the slightly different model from two years ago, PACR93) to cool off a hot upstairs bedroom. The fan and compressor unit are very loud, and its constant cycling on and off of the compressor creates a big "thump" that wakes me up ... read more

  • I believe this A/C is great and too bad it isn't sold anymore.

    Pros: Easy setup, works.
    Cons: tube that attaches to window sucks.

    Summary: I bought this a few years ago and it has worked great. It has enough options to work in  any occasion. I live in San Diego so it is warm year ... read more

  • Not a good buy

    Pros: Nice idea that should work.
    Cons: Overheats, pan fills with water. Not a good buy.

    Summary: Worked adequately for about 2 years - now the compressor overheats and the manufacturer says call service. Service doesn't answer. We've have other airconditioners in other rooms that have worked for over a ... read more

  • A decent unit

    Jun 21, 2008 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Portable, easy to set up and easy to use
    Cons: Not as quite as a window unit but it's portable

    Summary: Originally I bought this unit for my own bedroom but later on installed it at my friend's children's bedroom. It was bought from Costco many years ago and it works just fine when she takes it out of her storage. When I installed it in the children's ... read more

    Pros: Didn't burn my house down...?
    Cons: NOISE, inefficiency, short lived, low value solution...

    Summary: This unit cools by exchanging heat to air that it blows out of the room through a window mounted vent... ergo, it sucks warm air in under the door. Will it cool the room? Yes, but it spends a lot of energy doing it and, after two years, my unit is ... read more

    Pros: none
    Cons: heavy, doesn't cool, drippy reservoir (fell asleep, it flooded my kitchen)

    Summary: This thing is horrible. It brings my 350 sq. ft. apartment from about 100 degrees to 95 - if that. This is ... read more

    Pros: Even on very hot nights it has cooled the room down at least 10-15 degrees.
    Cons: It is difficult to roll on rugged floors.

    Summary: We have had very good luck with this machine. We bought it because our upstairs was very hot in the summer time and we needed something that we could move around. It has done its job for us. Now we are in need of a dial that fits in the middle of the ... read more

  • Do Not Purchase

    Rated Show
    Pros: None
    Cons: Defective, faulty

    Summary: I purchased this unit from Costco because my condo association wasn't going to fix our central air system before the start of summer. According to the manufacturer's booklet, the unit beep in alarm and is supposed to automatically shut off when the ... read more

  • Windchaser PAC9 full of hot air

    Rated Show
    Pros: Sorry.
    Cons: See above

    Summary: The unit blows nice cold air for about 5 minutes. Then it turns off and blows hot air. Upon reading and rereading the instructions to make sure I had connected everything properly I found out that the air conditioner doesn't work when it's over 90 ... read more

  • Wouldn't Recommend It for Home Use

    Rated Show
    Pros: Ice Cold Air, great for places where sound is not an issue.
    Cons: Too loud for use in a bedroom, water drain doesn't work well.

    Summary: We bought this unit a couple days ago. It is our only option for A/C as we live in a condo and the home owners association will not let us have a window mounted unit. We chose the WindChaser unit because it is relatively low priced for the features ... read more

  • Terrible Product

    Pros: When working, all in one unit was great.
    Cons: Unit fails every 4-6. Thermostat is analog.

    Summary: I've had 2 PAC-9's. I bought one to cool my computer room (3 servers in a closet). It worked fine for awhile and then went out. It took 2 months to find someone who WOULD work on it locally. They took it away and found a a broken refrig. line. ... read more
