Well worth the money!

This air conditioner is used to cool a rented bedroom that has only one small workable window. It runs on house current and is simple to install. Although it makes the usual air conditioner sounds when running, it made the room temperature bearable even when the outside temp. rose into the mid 90's. I would not hesitate to purchase additional units.

Works Great However.......

I purchased this unit as a supplemental A/C to the central A/C system which I have in my high-rise apartment. The central cooling/heating system runs on the same line and takes a while to convert from heating to cooling and back again. My housing complex usually converts the system to cooling fully by June 15th and starts to convert it back to heating after August 31st. This unit will be used for the times in which the central system has not been converted fully into the cooling mode or after it has been shut off. I have suffered thru many "indian summers" with no cooling. We are not permitted to install window units in our high-rise apartments for safety reasons (imagine an A/C falling 20 stories, possibly on top of someone). I purchased this unit to be used solely in my bedroom, which is roughly 375 Sq/ft. It was rather easy to install, even without the user manual. Most of the water collected from the humid air is expelled via the water mistifyer hose which runs right thru the exhaust vent hose exiting out the window. Very little water collects in the drainage pan. This model acts as an air conditioner and a dehumidifier, all at the same time. It evaporates the water/humidity in the room's air and exhaust it out the vent hose. There is a drainage pan, that collects any un-evaporated water, but that only needs to be drained if it's full. Which rarely occurs, unless the humidity is extremely high for long periods of time.

This portable A/C sofar has met my expectations but, there are a few issues which still have not been resolved as of yet.. The item was shipped promply via FedEx and was received safely however, it did not come with a user manual or the drainage tray. I called VMINOVATIONS as soon as I received the shipment and requested they send me the missing items, but I still have not received anything from them. It has been 1 (one) month since I had called them about it. I will call again in a few days. As for the A/C unit, it seems to work quite well. It's not whisper quiet but, it's not super loud as well. It seems to make just as much noise as any other A/C unit does. As long as you keep it on level ground, it should keep any shaking or rattling to a minimum. It cools down the area quickly and blows strong. The remote control has decent reach and the receiver seems able to pickup the signal from a wide range as long as you have good batteries in it. An issue I found possibly with their refurbishment/quality control is the fan speed LED indicator light is defective. The fan speed LED indicator light (HIGH) which shows what speed the fan is running on appears to have a short in the wiring and is intermittent. It sometimes lights up however, most of the time it does not. That seems to be the extent of any known issues with the unit at this time.

Overall, I am pleased with the this units performance and ease of installation. The design was well thought out and has a very small footprint. The water mystifyer via the vent hose is fantastic design and allows for continuous and uninterrupted hands free use with minimal water removal needed. The minor issue I have with the indicator light, which is more likely a problem with the refurbishment & quaility control systems at VMINNOVATIONS rather than an AMCOR manufacturing issue. It should have been noticed and repaired if they actually had a quaility control area. I am able to overlook this minor problem since everything else has met or exceeded my expectations. I am dissatisfied however, with how VMINNOVATIONS still has not responded to my request for a user manual and a drainage tray, since it was not shipped in the order however, I am hoping they eventually get around to it. In the meantime, I have to use a very shallow bowl to collect whatever water accumulates in the reservoir. Thankfully, this is something which doesn't have to be done often.

I would have given this unit 5 stars, but due to the missing items, malfunctioning LED light and VMINNOVATIONS failure to supply me with the missing items in a timely manor, I have decided to rate this item with 4 stars.

I hope this review has helped you in making a decision.

If anyone at VMINNOVATIONS wishes to contact me regarding the problems that still have not been resolved, you may do so at isaakjamesr@gmail.com ~ Thank You!

Buyers Beware

When it works this unit is fine. However, if something breaks there are no replacement parts available for this unit. Rather than replacing parts, the company will just replace the entire unit. This also means that if you are off warranty the best they can do is sell you a refurbished unit.

 

Mine has lasted 3-4 years so it is a sturdy unit. However, just keep in mind that if something does go wrong finding a solution will be tough.
