Allow me to be the first to say that it's a single hose. Which, by the way, I've found something works rather decent in a hot upstairs room with only one vent from the central air and no return

Worth spending more for a dual hose.

If you live in an extremely hot climate, no, they don't work. They need 95F or lower to work. (or so the unit i bought at Sam's Club was, no sure the specs of this one)

This kind of conditioner should only uses in a wide and flowable place. Not for places like a room without windows

The LG single hose unit I had was quite LOUD and rated at 8,000BTU yet felt like 4,000....I think it would be great in a basement where you could expel moisture to a floor drain.

We use this in addition to central air. Keep the central air for the house around 77-78, then use this in the bedroom to keep it 68 at night while we sleep. Works well under those conditions. Yes, I know it sucks in air from the rest of the house.

I bought one of these with a lower BTU a couple of weeks ago because my AC is broken and I couldn't get an appointment for 3 weeks to fix it. I'm shocked at how much it cools the room..even cools the adjacent rooms a bunch too. I'm giving it to my daughter for her college apartment this fall after my AC gets fixed. I paid a little more than this for 6000 BTUs so I think it's a great deal actually.

I was recently considering a portable unit because a window install would have been cumbersome in the location I needed it at. I watched this video and decided a window unit was worth the extra hassle versus a portable unit. I'd recommend anyone that doesn't absolutely require a portable unit watch this before buying - https://youtu.be/_-mBeYC2KGc

The 8000 BTU rating on this unit is misleading, as others have noted.

Manufacturers of portable A/C units generally publicize only the ASHRAE BTU rating. ASHRAE doesn't correlate well to the normal BTU ratings that everyone understands.

The BTU rating that you should pay attention to is the DOE BTU rating. The Walmart listing doesn't give the DOE rating, but the amazon listing does. It's only 4900 BTU.
