A.J.Madison comes through again.
Posted:11/3/10
Pros: packaging; light weight, overal quality
Cons: communication
"This is the second air conditioner I have purchased from AJM. It is also the second product I have purchased from AJM. My first was a Quasar - still doing fine after about 6 years in the window. This Soleus will serve as an emergency standby as I am getting aged. The Packaging was marvelous - the packing materials came in handy for other projects even! The machine works and will protect me when the window unit finally gives up. Although I didn't see any obvious "Made in China" I have a strong hunch and I just want to say: "Wherever they get the know-how from they sure produce a great product over there." The remote control is infrared and not RF. All the pieces are in box adapter may require some saw cutting to fit horizontal in a smaller window. That should be no problem for me. See you next time AJM!"

Great unit/great service
Posted:8/21/10
"I order this unit and received it in less than 7 days. So far it has worked great. I use it in a home office addition that was not cooling during the hot months by my main central A/C. The room is roughly 150 square feet and the unit cools it in about 10 min. I have never had a problem with the water backing up other than one day when my main central AC unit went out and we used it for two days nonstop to cool the master bedroom and office. The humidity in South Florida is the worse and this unit ran for two days before it needed to be drained. I have not had to drain it since I got the main A/C working again. The unit is quiet. The only down side is the draining of the unit, The plug is very low and the tray they give us is a joke it only holes 4 oz of water and I drained 1/2 a gallon.If I were to use this as a stand alone unit with no other A/C in a high humidity location I would add a drain hose which would be very easy to do.
PS AJ Madison had the Best price by far. At least $100 lower than everyone else. And $200 lower than many."

Excellent camping air conditioner
Posted:8/19/10
Pros: easy set up nice looking unit problem free so far, oscillation a huge plus
Cons: had to add a longer moisture drain hose no biggie
"Purchased this unit for tent camping in South Carolina during August of 2010. Unit set up is easy, just had to add an additional 10' section of 5/16"ID tubing for a moisture drain. 90+ degrees outside and 74 degrees inside the 10'x14' canvas Springbar cabin tent. When used in a high humidity region, run unit in "humidifier" mode and it will remove humidity and air condition all in one. Just remember to check the intake filters daily and be sure to keep them clean for maximum performance. Noise level was acceptable"

Quite pleased
Posted:8/13/10
Pros: it definitely cools, easy to install, not as noisy as some fans
Cons: electric bill will go up
"Being that this the first portable air conditioner I've ever bought I really have nothing to compare it to. What I can say is that this air conditioner really made a difference. I installed the soleus in a living room that's quite larger than the recommended 425 sq ft. With that said, within 20 min of turning it on I could feel a noticeable difference between that one room and the rest of my place (2 bedroom, kitchen, bathroom). After an hour, the living room felt 10 - 15 degrees cooler and much less humid than the other rooms. Installation was easy and the use of a fan helps circulate the cool air throughout the living room. I was also quite pleased with the 'noise' of the unit. Our box fan that we keep in the bedroom is twice as loud as the air conditioner.
I do have to drain the air conditioner more often than I'd like. It usually varies 1 - 3 days depending on the humidity. This and the fact that it uses a lot of energy (I notice my lights slightly dim when I turn it on) are the reasons for not giving it 5 stars. Also, this air conditioner is much bigger than I was anticipating. Luckily we have it in a really big room where it isn't in the way. It does have a nice look though.
Overall, I've been really pleased with it. One of my better purchases this year."
