Rated 4 out of 5 by from AC Danby DPA120B3WDB - Performance Review Reasonably pleased with this product. It cools the living & dining room areas of my apt. If I run a fan in the kitchen the two appliances will cool that area as well. Expect to install a ceiling fan in the bedroom for greater air circulation. The ad for this AC states unit cools up to 500 sq. ft. which is fairly accurate (I have not measured my apt. precisely). Removes humidity very efficiently - be sure to put a large bucket under the drainage hose & empty when bucket is 1/2 full otherwise it may become too heavy (for seniors). Would disagree with labelling on box stating quiet operation - the fan is quiet but the condenser is not - it has a somewhat annoying hum. Unit cools room/s but does not make them as cold as window installed ACs. Overall - pleased with purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Noise level : unknown It has a good design and a wide range of accessories which covers all types of windows commonly used in Canada, But It is important to consider two types of compressors, Rotary and linear. this unit has a linear compressor which creates loud noises. too loud to have this unit at home. compared to the size, this unit is bigger than a 14000 equivalent less noisy unit. the other concern is the bad insulation of the air pipe and hoses. the plastic hose does not completely fit air lock into the unit, and the hose that goes away to the outside air does not air tight with the hole in the window. leaving the unit working for hours, I needed to empty the water pint every hour. which is too much and it is not gonna work during the night. it was not efficient enough to cool a small room in my apartment during hot day. with 200sq ft area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gotta beat the heat! Got a good deal on this unit. It works great. It's not nearly as loud as people let on about. The different modes give more options rather than just air conditioning (dehumidifier and air exchange). Installation was easy. Had to cut the plastic slats as my window is very short. The remote is great as well and easy to use. Very happy with my purchase and will be nice and cool this summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, definitely worth the money Bought this about a month ago and it does a great job. Unit is easy to install and if you install it like a human being and not a gorilla there's 0 chance of the plastic clips breaking on the tube and window mount. As for the noise, it is an air conditioner anyone expecting it to be whisper quiet is wishing on stars. It is not terribly loud but definitely louder than a fan. That being said I sleep with it in the bedroom no problem

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Sliding Door Installations I did some research between this Danby and the LG units Home Depot was offering. I found that this Danby unit suited my sliding door installation and therefore was my deciding factor. I have had a Danby mini fridge before and that thing has lasted me for over a decade, so my trust in Danby products is absolute. My one complaint is that the exhaust duct pipe that comes with the unit is too short, i wish Danby provided a longer pipe, it really restricts how far from the sliding door i can have the unit. In terms of noise, there is noise. If noise is an issue for you and you have an option to buy a window unit, go with that. You have to keep in mind that all of the compressor and cooling units that make the noise are now inside your home compared to a window unit, where it is outside, thus reducing noise. Overall great product, the positioning of the air output and the oscillating feature make it fast at cooling down my living room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great AC Unit -- with a few nitpicks Just bought this thing in summer 2015. The AC unit works great, it cools whatever room it is in very well and very quickly. It is easy to use, just push the button and it turns on and starts cooling / whatever you want. -- The unit is heavy, so it tough to move up and down stairs, but I take the weight as quality. -- There are two types of foam that come with it to configure the wall connector. DONT USE THE THIN FOAM with the sticky back. This stuff is super poorly constructed and will stick to anything and you won't be able to move the foam after you stick it to something. I missed a bit when I tried to seat it in my window and now there are little bits of ripped off foam on it. JUST DONT USE THE THIN FOAM and save yourself some swearing and headaches. -- Just use the thick foam to make your "Gasket" in between your sliding window/door where you put the exhaust hose. -- I had to cut the window insert / exhaust connector as it was too long out of the box and my windows were smaller than the plastic insert. Keep this in mind, it's a tricky cut, because you want it just a smidge bigger than the opening of the window. -- It's not the quietest, but it sure cools the room! And it's not overly loud...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Quality We bought this AC 2 years ago and I must say the quality and standards of this product is really good. I think they just need to improve the plastic hose to a more convenient, easy and durable material. The noise is acceptable due to the size of the product. The weight is also manageable. This product is amazing. I highly recommend this indeed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, efficient ... I purchased this for the bedroom, but have since moved it to the living room as it is the larger of two units we have. Works well, cycles on an off . . . often use it just with just the fan. Note: some efficiency is lost due to very warm hose being in the room. Considering raising it up to shorten the hose.

We have an old house with poor insulation. We got a mini split on the main floor but need something for the bedrooms. How quiet is this when sleeping, and would running 3 at once kill our power bill?

Asked by: Katie
Hello, The DPA120B3WDB portable air conditioner runs between 54.9 and 55.4 decibels when running and uses 1355 watts and 11.5 starting amps. You would need to speak to your power provided to determine how much this would increase your bill. Regards Ann H Consumer Service

I got this AC for free from a friend, but it came with no exhaust hose. Can I use any 6" hose with it? Is there a need for any other adapter?

Asked by: Greg
Regular garden hose works fine. I used old hose so I could cut off the end at the drain. No other attachment needed. Hose should mean the built in bucket does not fill up.

what is the minimum width of the window needed to fit the air vent panel into?

Asked by: monte
Hello, Thank you for your question. The minimum height requirement for the air vent panel is 7 inches and the length of the panel is 28.25 inches. The length of the panel can be adjusted by cutting it to size however you will need at least 2 inches on either side of the vent hole to ensure stability of the panel. Regards Ann H

Could it cool my whole apartment if I keep it in my bedroom and leave my bedroom door open?

Asked by: Flynn
It really depends on the size of your apartment. It might be sufficient if you have a one bedroom unit. I have a two bedroom unit and the one I have cools down the kitchen, living and dining room down fairly well, but i require an additional unit for my bedroom and spare room.

why are users restricted to only 1 cool setting and only 1 fan speed?

Asked by: Snow
The cooling mood is adjustable using the temperature buttons and you can have the fan on auto which means it’ll choose which speed is best for the conditions or you can manually select between 3 different fan speeds.

Why are customers restricted to only 1 cool setting and 1 fan speed? Dont customers like to turn it to quite cold & high speed to quickly cool the place, then turn it to less cool & slower to keep the setting of their choice??? what is the default temp?

Asked by: Snow
This is a great air conditioner.  Your information is incorrect. You can adjust the temperture setting and it goes to as low as 17C which is quite cool and my go to temp. There are three fan speeds. Default temp is the 17C . It isn’t what I would call terribly noisy. I really am happy with this AC and have had it for three years now.
