Waste of money
It doesn't chill a thing! It is just a big noise, very noise fan that doesn't even swing side to side as simples $40,00 regular fan does... terrible! What a waste of hard work money... I'll try to return tomorrow to the store I purchased. Fingers crossed!
These are a waste of money and the reviews that say there great Im sure its people trying to sell them ,
No good !!!!!!!!! Absolute waste of money dont work the way they say it does , I cant see how people are saying it saves money after only owning for 3wks !!!!!! Scam
To noisey for a bedroom sounds like a storm in my bedroom I do shift work too noisey to sleep during the day I had to get out of bed and turn it off Will cost to much to send it back so Im stuck with it
Better off standing in a cold shower and tearing up your dollars!
I bought an Instachill 15EX only yesterday and to be honest it's been a waste of $400. Upon opening the box the product fell to pieces and it took a good few minutes to get it back together. I then filled the water container as per the directions, move the unit to the bedroom and switched on. This cooler has three fan speed settings. Noisy, Very Noisy and Ear Bleeding! The cooling effect is totally inadequate for the price. Basically is doesn't cool the room but is cooling if one were to stand directly in front of the vent which isn't ideal unless one sleeps vertically! All in all this is a very poor product which I'm hoping the company I purchased from will take back and refund me my hard earned cash but I'm not holding my breath.
Works as advertised!
Very easy to use and does the job. It's not an airconditioner, but it really helps cool down the place. I love that it's portable and easy to maintain as well. Good value!
Intachill performs fabulous, cools down the temperature instantly. Would recommend to everyone for summers
Very much satisfied with the performance. Cools down the temperature instantly. Would recommend everyone to use it in summers. Instead of buying expensive air conditioner I would suggest insta Hill.
Very cooling and chilling in the scorching hot summer at the highest temperatures. Saves a lot on power and electricity bills due to low energy wastage and direct and even spreading.
Summers are back, so is Instachill!
Purchased 1 last year, fell in love with it. So effective for NZ summers, decided to buy another one for mum this year. She loves mine and now wants one too.
Cool cool breezy
Very convenient and easy to install. Works well in room. Easy to use and low on bill as well. Very happy with it. Makes life easier. Thank youso much. Best
Coolers are back.
Works good in ventilated areas in the house and if it's not too humid. I wish it was as cold as an air conditioner but that would be too much to ask for a humidifier and something that uses only water.
Amazing amazing amazing
Its a amazing cooler portable and easy to use. I really like it as it consume less electricity and perfect for my room space . Such a awesome product at this price
Purchased at Tvshop.
Does the job
Perfect for the room. Added ice cubes as suggested and it did help with cooler air. Let's see if it continues to do its job this coming hot summer days!

This is just the perfect machine for summer. It does exactly what it says on the AD, keep the area cool as we are heading into the summer months to come!!
I bought a large Instachill water cooler from TV shop and this thing is about the size of a small fridge. The instructions are unclear as to where you fill it with water and the drawer at the base of the unit has no drainage and there are exposed wires. Water and electricity don't mix. Also the noise of the fan is so loud you can't hear the television. Not an ideal product at all. Furthermore any help for this product does simply not exist. Just a huge waste of money. I'm NOT impressed
Winter is coming
For me heat and summer doesn't matter. I got this last year and its the best cooling air cooler. Moved it to my work garage during winters but its very effective. Noticed my power bill going down as I switched to this.

Cant wait to use for summer!
Very happy with the product although i dont use it for winter but was great to use during the hot summer days. The customer team was great also to sort out my payments which i was having difficulty with. Great team!
Purchased in January 2019.
Excellent little product
The instachill has been a life saver for me in the summer time as it does exactly what the ad says, it’s air cooler that works well for us. Have sorted this away for the winter but looking forward to using it again during the hot summer this year.
