Better but harder to install.

Portables are terribly inefficient.

We have the 12000 btu unit, paid about the same as this deal 6 months ago.

However I've yet to figure it out vs a window unit. If I put it at 78 with the fan on auto the ac just stays on and at low fan speed. It doesn't kick on high fan speed for a bit and once the 78 degrees is reached the ac kicks off and just the fan is going or goes to low like a window unit. It stays on ac low even if it gets to 78 degrees. Ours just stays on ac no matter what it seems. It's on the she shed so I don't pay much attention or care really bc of it was the man cave I'd figure it out lol

Portable Ac are very insufficient they cost way more to run and are not accurate. Ductless is way better choice and will cool and heat better and more efficiently it just is a little harder to install but once installed it’s permanent and it looks nicer

I have a portable AC and it’s LOUDDDDDDD. Your body will feel comfort but your head will not from the noise. Noise cancelling headphone helps tho

Mini Splits require a condensate pump for below grade applications. This model does not come with one as I believe this function is usually not standard. MrCool Accessories and Addons page shows this condensate pump. http://www.mrcoolheatpumps.com/index_files/Page433.html

No. These are pre-flared and ready for nylog + screwing down threads for the lines.

That won't work because the connectors are different and the indoor unit is not pre-charged. It would be cost prohibitive (https://iwae.com/shop/3-8-x-3-4-mrcool-universal-quick-connect-lineset-ha20948.html) even if it did work. You could buy two or three vacuum pumps for the price of a pre-charged line set.

I've installed two of these exact units, and I wouldn't recommend them to anyone.

The main issue that I have with them is that their temperature control/regulation is messed up and the company won't do anything about it in terms of warranty support. If I set one to heat mode and set the temperature setting to a given temp like 72 degrees, the heat starts blasting, and continues heating up until the room is well over 100; it NEVER stops when it's on heating mode-- whether it's set to a temperature the standard way, or with the "follow me" mode on the remote.

When it's in A/C mode or Auto (which uses either A/C or heat as needed) the temperature regulation is extremely poor, when set to 72, the room will vary between 60 and 80.

There are also various more minor issues: the manual contains multiple errors, such as the hole cutout template is wrong for this model etc etc, the wiring diagram was wrong in the manual, and the wiring terminal label sticker was missing from both of my outdoor condensor units. All of these things just point to poor english language technical support from the company.

They don't stand by offering any meaningful warranty support to licensed contractors, and they openly state that homeowners/handyman installers won't get warranty support at all.
After a couple phone calls or emails, they promise to have their tech guys get back in touch, but you never hear from them again.

In the interest of fairness, there are several pros for these models though:
-These units are pretty easy to install (other than relatively minor issues with the manual and wiring diagrams) Also if you're not experience with cutting and brazing the refrigerant lines, then you'll likely wind up with an unsightly coil of extra line somewhere.
-They are QUIET. I don't have a decibel meter, but they are drastically quieter than any window unit or household central A/C that I have heard
- They are quite efficient compared to central A/C units or window/portable units

I hoped that these units could be an economical alternative to higher end brands, but while their mechanical performance is apparently quite good; they are quiet, powerful, and efficient-- the numerous electronic issues make this models a poor choice IME

In the Home Depot app, search for:
- "Mrcool DIY" shows the versions that are for DIY install, but all of these are out of stock
- "mrcool diy line set" shows the precharged line sets, one of which is the 16ft line set that the original poster mentioned is $222

not quite true. the mini splits are heat pumps which can heat in winter as well as cool in summer. these are nice inverter-based ac units and all, far more efficient than most, but not heat pumps.

Applause Pretty cool. Window units should've been designed like this all along.

But the window is still open a few inches and the compressor is right on the other side of the glass, so I'm curious as to how much quieter they are than a traditional window unit.

A mini split keeps the window closed and the compressor even further away and will give the occupant the quietest performance. And some mini splits, including this one, can heat via heat pump.

So much quieter!

Admittedly, it does not have a heat pump, so it is not a perfect replacement for OP's deal.
I just bought my second Midea u-shaped 8K BTU a/c after having one for a year.
I set up a home office for WFH, and I can comfortably have zoom meetings 3' away from this thing and no one would know.

Without a doubt the best window A/C I've ever owned. I even put the kill-a-watt on it to compare to my old model and because of the inverter tech, it is pulling half the electricity.

the A/C mode is quieter than my window fans and the "Fan" mode is so quiet you'd forget it's on.
The smart features are really well implemented too.

FYI, you cannot use the DIY line set with the non -diy version. The connectors are different.

LG also makes a dual-inverter AC in the traditional box shape.

It is very quiet in sleep mode, and in non-sleep mode it's mostly fan noise, you can barely hear the compressor.
