Rated 2 out of 5 by HonestJay Got 2 years out of it
I purchased this unit about 3 years ago and it worked great for the first 2 years (summers). This year it stopped blowing cold air and gradually started blowing warmer and warmer air until it was basically blowing hot air. I would not waste my money on this unit again as it is the most expensive 2 years (summers) of cold air that I have paid for. It is too expensive to repair now. I will buy another brand to replace it.
Has great feature though. Too bad that it does not work very long.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Casinoguy05 Capable product
I had this product for 5 years before I started having problems. During those 5 years this product did a very good job for it's intended purpose. It was able to cool down my 500 sq. ft. room with no problems. Features are nice/adequate but the remote could use a light feature for night time operation. The noise level is rated at 54 dbl. which is tolerable for operation. Developed a leak of some kind after 5 years of use, had it recharged but could not find the leak, however the compressor itself is still working. I would recommend this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by unlucky for me lasted 2 summers.
The LG a/c did not blow cold air when we tried to use it the third year. Purchased @ home depot. (We live in Oregon and it's only too hot here for about a solid week plus a couple days spread out here and there.) I've looked last year or the year before for cost to repair and it was so expensive. This year, I came on this site to see if I could find repair parts to do it myself. This a/c is such a waste to throw away if I can repair it. I have a similar type a/c made by Maytag that I've had 12 years... still working. So I guess I expected the same from this LG.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JL2014 Worked great until it died the third summer
Like many others have said, the unit worked well until it just stopped working (no cool air, but the fan still blows) in its third year. Also, this summer, the water tank kept filling up and had to be emptied every couple of hours or so. Because the unit is so low, it is difficult to do this without spilling the water. I am disappointed that this unit didn't last at least 5-7 years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rob Willie This product fits our needs
We have purchased / had five (5) LG Portable Air Conditioners and have only had a major problem with one of them. The condenser sprung a leak and lost all the Freon and wouldn't heat or cool as it was supposed to do.
This was a replacement for that one and is working well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by dk Failed after only 15 - 25 total hours of use.
Failed after only 8 - 12 uses. Out of warranty; too expensive to fix, a waste of money. Stopped "blowing cold" though fan and compressor were apparently operating. Before it failed it worked well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Symonds2 Poor Quality - Stopped Working After 2 Years
After two years the unit stopped blowing cold air! Extremely frustrated given the amount of money I spent. The product is out of warranty and a service call does not justify, better use of money is to purchase a new one ....
