What experts didn't like
On the lower side in terms of capacity. Lacks the fancy bells and whistles of most other models. It's not the right choice for those looking for an air conditioner with a timer.
- BestReviews
Because of it's one roller button mechanism, it can be difficult to direct airflow.
- House Method
Has a limited warranty only.
