Unit Failed in 4-5 years .. Supposedly an issue with changing of Isolator Switch.. NOT HAPPY at all.. I think many of these new units are over complex for many people, like many modern cars..Only something else to go wrong..

Unresponsive Warranty Claim
I had a Daikin Unit installed in 2018 and in mid 2020 the Unit started leaking water. After getting the installer to make a visit, they said a drainage tray has cracked and will possibly need replacement of indoor unit or extensive repair. I sent emails to customer service address and reminder for reply without any reply,and the last one "This is to confirm that we are in receipt of your email. We are currently investigating your request and will advise a response by the end of the week", this is over a week ago now, and all this now means i ...have been unable to use my unit extended period . I will ask anybody looking to buy Daikin products to reconsider, because why pay the premium when their service is terrible and their machines have become unreliable.

Doesn’t heat well
We had two of these units fitted. They work very well in summer, cooling the house down quickly and quite cheaply. In winter though they don’t work well at all. We often have to keep rugged up to be comfortable as they just don’t heat well. We often turn to the heater they were meant to replace in order to keep warm. I can’t recommend these units.

Going strong 4 years later after initial issue.
Had a 5.0kwH unit installed 4 years ago. Went well for a while (few months) then developed the scraping ticking sound of the fan touching the case. Installer came checked and tried to stop it. A few days later it started again. Installer came back, inspected again and went to Daikin for warranty swap. They sent a new fan/motor assembly and it was duely replaced. Later again it started, this time whole FTXV50UVMA replaced. No issues since ! Great air con, quieter that old unit that is for sure.

V good heating and cooling but dehumidifier really poor
I’ve had my 7.1 unit for 2 years and found it works well heating in Canberra, particularly nice with the fan on silent and the heat turned right up.Cooling is also quite good.
Dehumidifying is useless, it does nothing- I measured it and it just uses energy without lowering the humidity at all
For this reason I strongly warn this unit be avoided if you live in a humid area of Australia.
Remote is clunky, noise levels acceptable- I’ve had better and worse in the past.
Would I buy it again? Probably not, it’s ok but my last air con was better.

Disappointed with Quality
Daikin has a reputation for quality, however I feel this is unwarranted.
My 7.1kw Cora unit developed an annoying ticking sound almost immediately after being installed. The Daikin rep said the motors in some units aren't properly balanced and replaced mine, which dealt with the worst of the ticking sound.
However the replacement motor still seems quite unbalanced (you can feel the unit vibrating when it is running), and as a result, the unit's cheap plastic housing still rattles intermittently. While not particularly loud, I find it ext...remely annoying in a quiet room. The 2.5kw Cora unit in my bedroom does not suffer this problem. I feel this might be easy to overlook on a cheap unit, but not given Daikin positions itself as a premium product, and charges accordingly.

Really good Air!!
Really amazing product, got it installed few days ago and its gets quite cold easily, and it is very quiet and easy to clean and run. Very happy customer here.
The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
We have two Cora's in the house now, a 7kw in the lounge and 3.5 in the bedroom. These replaced older Daikin's and the difference is incredible. The power saving on our bill is probably a good 50% at least to what we were paying! We'd use the old ac's very sparingly and only when unbearably hot due to costs to run but now joke with each other saying these one's are free, lol. We run them almost all the time now without worrying about the power bill. It's fantastic
They're both very quiet, old ones were making funny gushing air sounds and no on...e could work out exactly why so these are like a Godsend. Cool really quick too, great features on remote. Worth the cash outlay for sure We've only recently found out there's an indoor, and outdoor 'quiet' mode. We thought just having the fan speed set to lowest setting was quiet.. Well with quoet mode on we think it's too quiet! So prefer the faintest bit of sound while sleeping and don't use it. That's how quiet these things can be Both installers told us they have Cora's throughout in their own homes so thar should tell you something

Fantastic Highly Recommend
Very quiet, quick to respond on heating or cooling, copes with extreme conditions, fits in nicely and not to bulky. Easy controls, Would recommend very happy with the performance of this unit

Noisy rattling even after several repairs
Unit has a loud rattle that changes with the fan speed. Daikin has been to repair the unit twice, and has even replaced the fan unit and the rattle still persists. Remote is slow to respond, so it takes a very long time to change the temperature.

I love my Daiken!
This aircon is wonderful. It’s cold, quiet and easy to clean and run. Very happy Daiken customer, it’s very refreshing on humid weather. Best Investment I’ve ever made! Highly recommend

The aircon work like magic
Hi pages DCM air conditioning installer.
The indoor and outdoor machine are almost no noise when running.
Cool the room in minutes even on 30 degree weather outside.
A bit pricey.
So far very happy with the purchase.

Just what I needed
Just love it. Couldn't live without it don't know why I waited so long. Love how it has a remote control and a wall mounted control just in case you misplace the remote which I do quite often
Purchased in June 2019 at Jessups for A$79.00.
Don’t know how I lived without it!
Simple to use, easy to set menu, the wifi app works great, heating extremely quick and efficient and quiet. Cooling the same. Nice unit to look at not bulky. I
It’s a perfect split system!
Eastwood Air Conditioning provided & installed our air cond. We have it for nearly 2 years. It’s installed in our lounge area & cool the room down within minutes.I can use the oven even it’s like 37c outside.If we leave it long enough, it can cool our bedrooms. We have it on for over 10 hours on a hot weekend. The quiet function makes it good if we have it on at night.

Perfect cantilever without it
Quite system quick install cools room quickly on power mode , cheap price good quality great value for money will recommend to everyone if looking at buying inverter keeps power costs down
Functions as described, except it has an inconsistent rattle. Even after two "repairs".
It heats and cools as described. But unfortunately within a few months it developed a rattling sound. This sound is inconsistent, meaning some times it occurs and other times it doesn't. The rattling isn't ridiculously loud, but certainly loud enough to hear when the unit is running during the night.
We have had the unit repaired twice, both times being told that "this is a common fault" and the fix should rectify the issue. Unfortunately it has not.
Paid a premium of over $200 for what we thought was the best build quality compared to other brands, regret the decision.
Great Air Con
Been using my Daikin Q series for nearly a year now so far so good, it cools and heats the house very well, and the outside unit is super quiet.

Be careful of false advertising
Daikin has advertised this previously (before my purchase) as having a photocatalytic filtration system -I could not find this filtration system, and Daikin refused to confirm if they actually had it. This matter has been forwarded to the relevant authorities. Works well however, will emit a bad smell if left on auto fan mode. Quiet operation, given the filtration system I would opt for the panasonic or LG as in my Opinion they have a better filtration system.

How much to purchase and install Daikin Cora FTXM$^QVMA (4.6)
What is difference between Daikin Cora and Daikin Alira.? Can’t seem to find much about the Alira.
The Daikin Cora Series of split system air conditioners caters to a wide range of budgets and room sizes – and with its 4.2-star rating, it does so pretty successfully.
The 2kW model (suitable for a small bedroom, study or kitchen) is priced at $809, while the model with the 9.4kW cooling power (suitable for a large lounge or open plan area) is $1079.
The many reviewers that awarded the Daikin Cora 5 stars had plenty of points of positive feedback. These included that this split system AC is cools a room effectively, which was a refreshing relief. Users also appreciated how the aircon was easy to use, and that it was quiet and efficient (which helped with keeping the power bill low).
