Comment:
Bought this a/c at Home Depot. It does cool my 300sq ft bedroom well buuuuut, it's too loud. It has a rattle in the front filter cover which I had to wedge some socks under to quiet it down; this is with the blower on low. With the blower on high, it's just too loud. Will be returning then purchasing a different brand.

Comment:
Ran 2 8000 BTU units which handled whole space. Older unit died, and this one handled it all even in extreme heat. Very efficient, but NOISY, and air directional control is limited. Don't install it so it blows on you.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
