I have the 10,000 BTU version that I paid around $200 for a couple of years ago. Works great.

I bought this exact unit a year and a half ago for my 150 sq ft bedroom and it worked decently for the first 3 months, but then it started accumulating water and wouldn't cool the room properly, even though it was very clearly tilted to the outside downward. Also for some reason I found 3 dead beetles sitting behind the filter grid. I have no idea how they made that journey into the filter.

Mine most likely had a physical defect and going through warranty seemed like a hassle. I gave it away and bought 8,000 BTU unit for $187 (roughly, don't remember the exact price) and it performs SO much better. Especially in the TX summer.

I just bought this for $10 more from Sam's Club last Saturday. Nice little unit so far.

It's worth noting you may have to drill a couple of holes in it for water drainage, or else after a while you will end up with a puddle on your floor. I haven't experienced that in the week I have had it, but others in the reviews have.

Reviews seem a bit on the negative side for me. I bought the 5000 btu Frigidaire from Kohls last year for around $100 for our kitchen and although it's not digital and has no remote it cools our kitchen quite well.

CAUTION: NOT THE RIGHT PICTURE ON WALMART. I was just comparing this to the Sam's Club yesterday. This unit on Walmart is not digital it has turn knobs as the reviews say. Personally worth the $10 more to buy from Sam's Club to be able to set the temperature and better return policy.

If water is leaking into the house, then its defective or not installed properly. I would not advise drilling hole in an AC unit. They are meant to accumulate a certain amount of water for the fan to catch and spray onto the unit to help keep it cool. With no water, it will likely burn up or not cool effectively.

When I copy and paste the model from Walmart into Google, it gives the digital unit with remote on GE's web site:

http://products.geappliances.com/...cs/AEW06LX

I'd say that if someone is shipped the mechanical version, they were sent the wrong unit.

I've got the 2017 8K version. At that time it was only $159.99 for 8K and it had the same dimensions as the 6K. ( Having to fit it in a pre-existing wall cut opening always makes replacing fun!)

Anyway...It is still running great and the air out the vent is the coldest I've had from the various Frigidaire, Kenmore and Hampton Bays that I've had in the same wall cut.. It actually makes my fingers ache when I hold them in the flow!

Oh yeah, by the way....Do not drill drain holes! Just google it. These efficient units are not like the olden days ACs. Tilt the unit back more. It uses that water buildup and fan kicks it over the coils.

Modern air conditioners are supposed to accumulate water. The fan needs to pick some up to coat the heat exchanger. It helps with efficiency.

That said, sounds like yours might have had some other problem.

I have this and wouldn't recommend it. It cools fine in 70-80 degree weather, but once it gets really hot it's close to useless. My room isnt even that big either.

These smaller units are waste of money. Average "small" room needs 8000 btu machine for days/nights of 80+ weather. Been there, done that.

In 2 months this will be $40 in 2 months, way too small for a house, would barely cover a bathroom.

I don't think they even make those. Sounds to me like you got a return from someone who bought a new unit and returned the old one.

Even a returned one would not be that cheap. Come on 6,000 BTU will be plenty for most bedrooms.

May not be the same AC. They sell more than one at Sams Club.
