Rated 1 out of 5 by from AC works but the "smart" features don't. Toshiba markets this product as a "Smart Air Conditioner". The connectivity via their app doesn't work- in fact, their customer support tell you to use the Midea Air app. Despite this, I have not been able to connect the AC to the smart features. The phone line help was of no use other than to "reinstall the app" and to "refresh the app". While the AC itself does the job, having the "smart" features not work is an ironic failure of Toshiba. This issue is not limited to myself- this is all over review sites for this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the size For the size of this little unit, it’s quite powerful. The design is also really nice and sleek. Also, my wifi is fine on my unit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy it, it worked for 2 days Toshiba used to make good laptops but they definitely don't make good air conditioners. 2 days after buying this its started making this insane howling noise and now a grinding noise. Trying to figure out how the process to return it but no Home Depot store is picking up the phone including their general number. Also wanted to mention, the Alexa functionality doesn't work in Canada, the skill isn't available so you have to use the app which is not great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Loud and not strong Its a 8000 btu but seems closer to 6000btu Maybe my unit lack some freon? I just know that this unit seems weaker than my other 8000 btu from a different company. The noise is bit loud... the vent vibrate causing some extra noise.. i was able to fix that.. that smart feature works with my iphone. I can control the unit just fine. But to be honest, if you dont need to change anything to its settings, then you dont need the smart feature.. you can always shutdown any air conditioner using smart outlet that typically cost 20 bucks This smart feature is good if you need to change the temperature remotely.. but if you need to remotely shut it down or turn it on. You can simply add some smart outlet.. So the bad about this unit.. weak, not cold enough, noisy Like i said, maybe my unit doesn't have enough gaz despite being new Ans it is noisy

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little window unit! Replaced our old 5,000 btu unit with this one in our 3rd floor attic space. We have central air but it just doesn't cut it in the attic. This unit does the job incredibly well! We leave it set at 25 on the econo setting and it's perfectly cool in the attic. It was simple to install. We didn't use the accordian side pieces because our window is narrow, but we fashioned our own & it was good to go. I would've given it 5 stars, because it works so well, but it's a bit on the noisy side. Not unusual for a window unit, plus it is located right beside our tv. Just crank the tv up a bit and we were good to go. On the econo setting it doesn't run continuously so the noise isn't continuous. Haven't set up the wifi yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As expected So far so good. Happy with it. There is a button on the controller to turn the lights on/off of the A/C. I would have liked to have that button on the A/C itself as well. I haven't tried the wifi thing, the app seems old, but I don't need that anyway.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Toshiba AC 8K BTU Kinda disappointed as I was expecting it to be more colder than my previous AC (less than 5K BTU plus 9-year old). It was not easy to connect to the net so I could use my cell to operate the buttons.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst A/C ever bought I bought this ac one year ago.. and now the compressor have problem. Look super clean and i checked it.. let me also talk about the BTU... its not a 8000.. its a shame to sell these kind of A/C its the worst thing I'veever bought. Cheaper AC as been working for YEARS and this one stopped after 1 year. For the price DO NOT BUY THIS!! Shame on you toshiba and home depot!! Never coming back

How does the unit handle the water it pulls out of the air? Is there a place for a hose that can direct the draining of the water?

Asked by: andy
Hi andy. Thank you for posting your question about the Toshiba 8,000 BTU Smart Window Air Conditioner RAC-WK0812ESCWR. When this unit is correctly installed through the window (tilted about 3° to 4° downward to the outside), any excess condensate flows into the overflow drain during normal use. Enjoy your day!

Problem with new Toshiba 8H Btu. The grill on the back has a pretty deep dent. The small compressor pipes look intact, but could be damaged and, I think, it can cause the leak of coolant. Is it critical? Can I use this unit, or I should return it?

Can this be installed in a horizontal sliding window?

Asked by: Jay M
I did this! You have to DIY things a bit though. Some youtube videos can walk you through this. In short, we measured our window to get a piece of plywood that would cover the gap at the top. Screwed the a/c into the plywood, and then drilled the plywood into the top of the window. Depends how tall your window is though, could be a bit of an eye sore (if you care about that). We painted the plywood white so it matches the window fitting kit that fits horizontally (that comes with the a/c). Looks good/works well and feels really secure.

What is the decibel rating?  

Asked by: Ajandchmac
I don’t have an exact number, but if you are asking how loud it is I would say it’s fairly quiet. You know it’s on, but its more of a white noise than anything.

Toshiba is a brand from Japan. Why under the item description it said Made in China

Asked by: Syed Tirmizey
Many things are made in China or other country facilities regardless of brand original country.

Will this fit in a window that is 19 inches wide and 16 inches tall?

Asked by: Kerb
No, it’s a bit taller than that

It says in the specifications that the assembled width is 18.54", but then above that in the description says it fits a window 23-36". Why are there 2 different measurements for the width? Will it not fit a window smaller than 23" in width?

Asked by: katie
I believe the 23" is when the accordion side panels are on. My window is 21" and it fits without the panels on. But I plan to return it tomorrow. Very noise and not very cool at all.
