These models have an issue with some internal assembly of the exhaust fan.
I had mine completely disintegrate at home after powering it on, and I had to take it back (a real pain in the ass)
I'm not going to attempt it again :-)
I really wanted to like it, but it was such a pain to haul it home and back.

How does price adjustment work if we purchased online? The price online is still 519.99

Was also wondering this. Few family members purchased during the last few heat waves. Seems to work well. Though it's anecdotal, anyone can chime in with experience if the umbilical cord design works well for 2-pipe?

Also had issue.Not worth the 400 unless you get a good one then it works great and would be worth 400 easy.

Anyone in GVRD had success price adjusting? Did you just use the picture?

Living is also energy inefficient, what's your point?

Price adjust worked for me. Bought a new unit, went straight to the counter and returned it using the old reciept ($499.99+tax)

This one is inverter based so I guess supposed to be more energy efficient than regular ones? too bad its not the color I want otherwise I would have risked it. I'm looking at LG dual inverter based in Homedepot but thats 658$. Also people buy portable AC because of limitations they have in the rooms they need to cool down.

I bought this back in June or July for full price. Before the heat wave hit, life saver. Wish I got it for $400 though

My last AC unit died just as the heatwaves were hitting us here in GVRD (Of course it did), was able to get 1 online and even though I was reading quite a few people having issues with the unit, mine worked like it should (did not roll a critical miss I guess). Have a couple of young kids so we packed into the master bedroom to sleep during the hot nights and it was pretty cold and surprisingly silent for its size.

Would be great if I can price match it here but knowing how the world works, it ain't going to get any colder during these summer months so its good to have one and not sure if I'm all on board with adding a central AC into my place but its also not out of the question either ...

Bought this model and had same issue as one of the users above. Internal fan didn’t work and machine crapped out on first day of use.

question, if costco is selling stuff for almost what they got it in for does that mean they are losing money on the clearance items or the "almost wholesale price" is 25% markup ?

I have 3 of these units and used them 24 7 for 2 months and no issues at all.
