I think that this air condition is dfeinatly worth the money. I think that it cooled down our house alm ost immediately. I think that we just basically used it in the main floor of our house and it worked within 1 hour or so, Its super amazing and I would highly recommend this product to anyone. I think that the price was sort of expensive but then again you get what you pay for. I rend to buy them about every other year or so because we end up loosing a part or a cord or sometihng but this one tends to work great for us. I really like the collor and the looks of it as well. Its not too junky or big or clinky. THe nose is actually prettuy quite as well so I would highly recommend this, The white color is the one that we purhased and it looks pretty much higher end. I think that I would suggest a buigger one of you had a really lardge but for something in the 100-200 sq ft rand ge then I think it owuld work wonderful!
