Rated 2 out of 5 by Dad I expected great things from this unit
I purchased this 500 square-foot unit for my garage which is an insulated 500 square-foot space.
It is a June day with temps in the low to mid 80s and humid outside. The garage was 81 degrees. The unit has been running on high for almost 12 hours now and the garage is only down to 75°F. Not really what I wanted or I expected.
I have a very straight short shot out of the wall for the exhaust. When I go outside and hold my hand in front of the exhaust duct, it is blowing a very high CFM. My thought is that the unit is pulling in outside air into the garage to make up for the high CFM exhaust it is pushing out. Pulling in the hot humid make-up air is probably one reason it is not cooling well.
The duck itself is very warm when touching it. I do plan on insulating the short 18 inch section that leads to the outdoors. This will help a small amount.
I've had small window air conditioners that would freeze you out with the same circumstances. Sorry LG, I'm dissatisfied.

Rated 1 out of 5 PIECE OF GARBAGE -run away!!
I had high hopes for these units. Most of the reviews are recent and initially you will be impressed.
I HAVE FOUR OF THESE UNITS AND ALL FOUR HAVE FAILED. Two during the warranty, and then all 4 outside the warranty.
ALL FOUR OF THEM LEAKED EVERYWHERE!!!!
One completely stopped heating, two of them can't heat or cool correctly. The pumps fail (known issue according to the technician).
Run away from these as fast as you can. At this price, problems with one wouldn't be acceptable, problems with four just show major quality issues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by keepingcool 14,000 BTU has great features
I would recommend it but not getting the floor model. I also think that they should make the Exhaust hose more durable because mine broke 2 times now and I am waiting for another replacement. Other than that, I would say it's worth it. I bought mine 10/25/12 which isn't that long ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Baloo35 Excellent Overall Design
I have purchased a LG LP1411SHR Portable Air Conditioner. Given that LG rhymes with quality and the best bang for the buck. The air flow is excellent on a low setting. The design is innovative for the vents to open up automatically to decrease dust accumulation. The touchpad settings are larger than is offered on the market. Finally, the installation was a breeze with the high quality grade plastics for the windows.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Yep LG ac/heater
So far the item is working wonderful. It doesn't require a lot of maintenance. It is not noisy and heat up pretty well from one bedroom to the bathroom and the other room. we loved it during the hot summer.
The 3 speed fan modes which also has the option to swing up and down is convenient specially for the a/c mode. or just the fun without either heater or a/c mode.
Digital control on the device itself and the control too beeps everytime a button is pressed.
With the remote control I don't have to get up to change the settings specially at night while my daughters are asleep; the control screen lights up when you turn it on.
The dehumidifier setting is also included.
Drain hose connection and the vent hose are included too.

This is the biggest and best portable air conditioner on the market. the draw back is there is no current temp reading! Why? Because we really don't want to know what the temp is - we just want it where we can kick off our shoes - sip the drink and enjoy the atmosphere we've created.
Shadrack, meshack, and abedmego enjoyed the coolness of having the presents of Christ with them. I'm waiting for that day as well but will be content with my LG till then!
