Since they are not producing many products anymore
Had to chose a protable since the windows do not accomidate what is on the market.
Much more expensive than is worth, but the heat is not my friend. Very bulky when trying to empty, and the directions in the book is not relative to this model. Dripps and drabs came out, still not sure if it is empty.

This unit operated well for the first month or so, then the water reservoir clogged and the unit stopped draining. The only way to empty the bucket now is to tilt the unit at roughly a 60 degree angle and let the water drain from the bottom of the unit. Even with a drain hose attached to the drain plug the unit fills with water and shuts down in under 48 hours requiring another manual intervention. The water draining from the bottom of the unit creates a mess on the floor and there is no telling what damage, if any, is being done internally since I have been unable to find an exploded parts manual online to determine the cause or solution. This appears to be a "seldom use," "light duty" solution and should not be considered as a "seasonal" fix for a cooling scenario.

Not what I had hoped, loud and expensive
This product was much louder than anticipated, do not recommend if it is going to be used in the bedroom. My power bill was increased significantly and the product did not cool the room as I had hoped. It's also not as versatile in mobility as I wanted.

Easy to set up and operate
As a property manager, I purchased this unit to use during A/C outages in my apartments. The unit is fairly portable and can be set up quickly, unlike a window unit. It is large enough to cool 1-3 apartment sized rooms from a central location.
I'd like to see a more substantial, rigid plastic window exhaust spacer. The plastic is so flexible it is difficult to hold it in place to get he window to close evenly on the spacer and the foam insulation..
