Bring on the A/C
Very well priced item for functionality and options provided.
Run as a fan, dehumidifier or a portable a/c unit with temperature & fan speed control.
A/C compressor can be manually bypassed when it gets too cool or left running in automatic mode.
I have a Gym at home and on the stinking hot summer days it has never failed to keep the room more than cool enough even on the low settings, I was a bit skeptical when I purchased the item but after multiple uses of this unit I am more than impressed and would recommend it on a high note.
Great for a small room / unit, but a bit noisy
I bought one of these to cool my rented one bedroom unit on those extra hot days. It does a decent job of keeping the whole unit cool, but it is too noisy to have in the same room, so I put it in the kitchen and direct the stream of cold air into living area and bedroom. The exhaust duct is nice and long and the window vent easy to mount and use. When it's not in use, I roll it under the kitchen bench, out of the way. An economical solution when a split unit AC unit can't be installed, but just not as quiet or efficient.
Good unit for medium room size
Works well but you need to keep in mind the size of the room. In my lounge (7m x 4m) it makes a difference to the temp and stops it getting hot but never gets all that cold. But in my bedroom (3m x 4m) it gets cold enough to wake you at night (which is a good thing).
It comes with a window install kit to vent the air but I made my own out of the box it came in. Its a bit loud if you're trying to watch TV, but to be fair, the thing is sitting right next to me which is bound to impact the noise levels. If I had to buy it again I would probably look at the next model up to get one rated for a bigger room but if this will suit your room size then I would highly recommend.
Bought this unit end of December while Sydney was sweltering somewhat. Have probably used it 7-8 times so far and have found it to be quite ok for a medium sized bedroom. I have read how people have mentioned that it doesnt cool but it is necessary to supplement this with a fan of some sort which can get the air circulating in the room. So far been quite satisfied with this unit.
Went to Harvey Norman where the prices were very competitive. We are very satisfied with the air con which can be moved around the house easily. Installation is easy and instructions make it better. We have it in the bedroom and the sound is fairly quiet and room is cool
Bought one to supplement our split system in an onsite caravan and hard annex. The air coming out of it is 12 degrees which is average but it is so BLOODY NOISY it drives me insane. Oh well you live and learn I suppose. Probably contact Harvey Norman and exchange it if they have something more suitable ie quieter!!!!!!
Noisy peice of crap
Changed a bedroom by maybe 2 degrees in an hour. The unit Is so loud!!! Got this unit for my daughtrs room, No way anyone could sleep with this running, so loud she was crying. I will be returning the unit to Harvey Norman and asking for a full refund.

Worked amazing for 3 months, now just blows out room temp air
The units cooling performance when it was new was great, my 3x3 room could get down to 18 degrees. Now only 3 months old it’s making clunking sounds and blowing warm air. It’s very noisy to use when you try to sleep. My biggest complaint is how can a brand new unit break after only 3 months? Will be returning it to Harvey Norman
Great little unit
I have had the unit in the bedroom since last summer and for the for amount of times its needed it does the job well. I probably expect too much of it (in that the room size is larger that whats recommended) but its done the job for me. I usually turn it on an hour or so before going to bed and it stays on whilst I'm asleep, so reasonably quiet. So far no water issues (like I haven't had to empty yet), remote works fine, would say good value.
Great for camping
We purchased this to use in our camper trailer over Christmas as I was pregnant and wanted to feel comfortable.
It didn’t take too long to cool the area down and it was surprisingly quiet.
We were on a powered site, so I am unsure on how much battery it consumed.
Was a great purchase and really ensured I enjoyed my holiday.
Unexpected pleasant surprise
This unit is a fabulous addition to our home,its been a blessing setting it up in our bedroom,& being able to have a good night sleep. Which doesn't happening to often.. Fits nicely into the corner of the room,& is really easy to install into the window & isn't too noisy.

Good for the money
Overall the unit is good. I am using it in a room slighty bigger than suggested but it cools the room nicely on average hot days. During this summer we had few extreme hot days when it was not enough but that was indeed extreme weather.
It is portable and easy to install.
It is not very loud but also not quite. It has make sound but you can talk on phone or watch tv while its on.
Overall I am happy considering it is the cheapest one in the market
Purchased 2 units
Purchased 2 units,both stopped blowing cold air and started leaking water every where so I got both replaced. Within 1 month one of the units yet again has stopped blowing cold air and is leaking now have been told user error by the company... its not user error the water builds up too fast and hasnt got time to drain properly. So angry money wasted!
I have an omega altise portable unit. My unit is not working and showing w.f error? What does that mean? We emptied the water and cleaned the unit. It still won't work? Any ideas? Has anyone else had this issue? Please help. I don't want to have to buy another one...
I have unit replaced twice now and still has same problem . Under hot humid conditions the water build up in top tray faster than it can drain out and is blown out of back causing lots of water to puddle around it . Definitely no good in a Queensland summer
Great for the bedroom
Brought this too cool down my room it does the trick so happy i brought this. Im getting a good night sleep dosent take long to cool the room and with sydney heat its been a blessing. Easy to instal Cons: is the noise of the unit but i can get past that as my snoring is probably louder lol
We are now considered GLAMPERS - couldn't go camping in QLD without this now !!!
We bought this unit so that we can go camping with our camper trailer in the North Qld weather. It cools the entire tent of the camper wonderfully & makes sleeping so much better. We run it when using powered sites at caravan parks & also run it using a generator when we are out bush. It's a quiet unit & we just poke the vent out from under the tent door flap. When travelling it lays down in the camper trailer.
The Omega Altise Range is supberb
I have rented several brands of these air cons over the years and never been disappointed ever. Most of the ones i have are reverse cycle so its great for winter or summer and they suit my family as we rent a house. The install is so easy you dont need to attach it to the window
We are on our 2nd unit now. The 1st unit said wf error. They replaced it. Now the 2nd unit is leaking water from underneath somewhere. This unit is only 7 months old. So now we are going to demand our money back from Harvey norman Browns plains. They will probably want 2 send it away 2 get it checked buy the manufacturer but it's a crap unit. So the moral of the story is don't buy cheap crap.
Best buy for small room of around 350sqft
The AC unit is quite effective and cooles a small room within 10 mins. The instalment is very easy and can be done by self. Unit is actually not too loud. Probably like a reasonable size exhaust fan and that's expected. Usually you get used to that noise. It's not at all disturbing. Read lots of negative reviews but I bought this product and am happy to say it works perfectly in small rooms. Obviously a small portable AC can't replace 1 ton split ac so please bear this in mind. Overall good product and satisfied.
Questions & Answers
Hi folks, I have the OAPC29 model which has been great thus far, however, the fan has stopped working. I have read the manual over and over, and tried everything. Any ideas or suggestions to reactivate the fan would be greatly appreciated.
Dismantle and see if the fans bearing is not clogged up, going further see the main board for any burnt capacitors or such.

When using the dehumidifier mode do I still need to have the air vent out the window ?
Alexis P.Omega Altise
Good morning Bernadette , the dehumidifier is one of the functions on this portable unit , so it will require to have the air vent out of the window as with all other functions . If you require further assistance please feel free to give us a call on 1300 739 033. The team at Altise.
Hi I was told by the sales
Consultant you don’t need to empty the water from this u it. That seems incorrect with the comments above. Also the fan grate is only half of the unit the other half of the fan grate is solid why is this. I’m not very happy with this purchase from Good Guys
Dehumidifier function will need water to be emptied, you will get a notification and unit shuts off..fan grille is designed for that specific airflow iam guessing.
Alexis P.Omega Altise
Hi there Tanya , please see instructions below on emptying water from this unit if we can assist or troubleshoot with you please give us a call on 1300 739 033 The team at Altise.
This machine has an auto-water-evaporating system. Condensed-water
cycle is used to cool down the condenser, which not only improves
cooling efficiency, but also saves energy.
If inner water tank is full, “W.F” indicator will flashed on the screen, af ter 8
seconds the machine goes into standby mode, the buzzer beeps, the
compressor stops and all keys are invalid.
Pull out the plug to drain out water, power off the machine and restart it, the machine will run normall
