Cooling Capacity

Frigidaire FFRE063WAE
Great little unit for small spaces
Quick update - It was in the upper 90s here all weekend. I turned the A/C unit on about an hour before bed every night and it would cool from close to 80 to mid-70s in an hour when set on "high cool" and 6 out of 7. That made it comfortable to fall asleep. I then turned it to "low cool" and went rig...

Midea Duo MAP12S1TBL
So so
Okay so I’ve owned many window unit air conditioners and this is my first portable unit. I live in a studio apartment that’s small and I finally caved on purchasing an AC. I was told no acs by my building manager so I needed something small and discreet and this unit did meet that criteria. However ...

Excellent Portable AC
I’m a huge fan (no pun intended) of Midea products and this unit is no exception. Recently, my AC has been giving me a ton of issues and since I live in FL it’s not uncommon for the temperature to reach 80+ degrees inside of my home. Opening the windows doesn’t help since it just let’s in a ton of h...

Cost

Frigidaire FFRE063WAE
Cheapest option out there, many frustrations
By far this is the cheapest option you have out there among in-stores or online. It definitely gets things cool quickly (I have a very tiny bedroom, about 8 x 14 ft). My frustrations include- 1) poor window fitment- the slide-out sides do not go flush to bottom/top OR sides- huge gaps even with the ...

Midea Duo MAP12S1TBL
The Worst Purchase I've Ever Made
This unit produces so much water run off that we had to set up a series of plastic storage boxes to collect it and sit it up on top of a milk crate at an angle to drain properly. I ordered it because I didn't want a window unit hanging out of the side of our house while we dealt with a loss of centr...

Energy Consumption

Frigidaire FFRE063WAE
Defective Unit
I ran this AC for two nights at high cool, max cool, it is defective and only works as a fan, it doesn't cool. After running at max for twelve hours, the temp in my small bedroom was still over 80 degrees. I tried to work with Amazon on an exchange, it was a nightmare experience. Three hours on the ...

What’s cooler than being cool…ice cold
Makes the room ice cold quickly and pretty quiet for an air conditioner, my dB meter is picking up less than 50 dB of ambient noise. Set up took me about an hour to install- watch the Midea installation video of this exact model on YouTube for better understanding of instructions. I wish it had an E...

Efficiency

Frigidaire FFRE063WAE
Great Great Air Conditioner
This air conditioner is WONDERFUL. I researched before I purchased it and it was always in the top 5. It cools our entire 2 bedroom apartment with ease and with energy saving and the remote sensor, it stops and restarts itself. It even tells you when to clean the filter.

Noise Level

Frigidaire FFRE063WAE
Blows pretty good but Loud, LOud, LOUD!
Did I say the unit was Loud. Ok, so let me preface that with saying this. I purchased the 12,000 BTU to replace a quiet model 8000 BTU unit that wasn't cooling my front area. This unit definitely does a better a job at cooling than my smaller unit but the trade off is the noise level. This thing sou...

DONT BUY
Product leaks water every where. It creates negative pressure in room and sucks in an air available from strucutre. It is loud----most of all, it does not eliminate water through air tube. Do not recommend. Tried to return but just missed 30 day mark. DO NOT BUY
