recently bought this unit mainly for my lounge. it has a true BU rating of 11300, more than adequate for my 16x12ft NE facing room (late afternoon sun). Just a couple of points following on from other reviews. Yes, it is heavy, but really not so heavy as to be worried about. I managed to get the unit up a steep flight of stairs on my own, albeit just one step at a time. It is liftable for an average build male. As with all mobile air cons, it works best when the hose is of a length not exceeding the design spec. In this units case it comes with a 2meter x150mm hose. I have mine in a corner, next to a window which only has a top opening. The hose fits at the back of the unit, but even so mine pretty much still sits in the corner with the hose attached. I confess to a liberal interpretation to the 500mm clearance at the back of the unit as there are no vents to the rear, but the left side (looking at front) is where the vents are. hose dosnt show if curtains not quite fully opened. Again, as with all mobile air cons, it is a little noisey, but the advantage of this unit for me is that it is powerfull enough to cool a room using the timer before i get home, and only needs brief running during the evening to keep the room cool... you certainly wouldnt want it on all the time while in the room. the refidgeration is actually vey quiet, most of the noise coming from the fan. It is rated 49db, which is supposed to be at the quieter end of the market. It looks pretty good, which was important to me as it stays in the room all year around. Contary to a previous review, my unit at least can switch off the front panel LCD display if so wished. If you see the following spec, for a unit that can condition 450m3/hr, the max cooling power consumption appears to be very good at 1.33kw... thats about a small fan heater territory.
