this portable aircon works really nice, not too noise and control remote is a plus obviosly the room need to small about 30m2 I never had a problem till now with that over a year now. Perfect in a studio or oven garage.
Effective, value for money
Does the job, easy to use, cheaper than most other portable air conditioners but still quite effective! Glad we purchased this as it has definitely helped to make us feel more comfortable during the hot days and nights.
It worked well for 2 weeks and by working well I mean it actually blew cold air. After 2 weeks, it makes all the noise associated with a cheap portable a/c unit but stopped delivering cold air. I have 2 other Portable A/C Units (different brands) that work extremely well. In terms of the Stirling 12000BTU 3.4kW Portable A/C - I wouldn't recommend you buy one - you can achieve the same result with a $50 fan.

Amazing Product. I love it :)
I bought this one couple of years a ago and believe me its amazing. No regrets except the one that I should have bought this product earlier :). Its Compact, not that heavy weight as you would think of an Aircon to be.
Moreover it comes with 3 years warranty - what else would to need to take risk of $400 which eventually would turn out to be the best portable Aircon.
I am very happy with this.

Unreliable - 3 Year Warranty not worth the paper its printed on.
I bought one, used it most of summer and suddenly it stops working. Shuts off after 30 mins, max. Aldi palmed me off to Tempo (the company that rebadge this POS) who had me deliver it to the "repairer" of their choice. He claimed it was working fine in his controlled and humidity free testing room. I get it back, and it's still malfunctioning the same way. Aldi refuse to talk to me - palming me off to Tempo, who claim it's my problem to deal with. They actually suggested I either move to another less humid state to fix my problem, or buy ...an alternative air con solution - that's right, their suggestion for my warranty issue was to buy a better replacement product. Spoke to a mate who installs and services Aircon, who looks at it and tells me that it's generating too much moisture and the mechanism that deals with that isn't working. Had the repairer turned it on outside a humidity free testing room they'd have seen that immediately. So now I'm stuck with a POS nonworking aircon because Aldi deals with a cowboy company who refuses to properly honour warranties, or hire competent repair and service techs. Previously, I'd avoided buying from Aldi because everything they sell is rebadged $2 store garbage. I relented on this one because it was a bargain, and everyone kept saying how good their customer support and warranties was ("3 whole years!"). Will not be buying from them again.
In very good condition, works perfectly and I love how you can put it in rest mode and change it from low to high , very affordable price aswell very happy

It didn’t work for my situation
I bought this for my one bedroom granny flat. Installed as per the instructions, fitted to my window, closed all doors and other windows and blinds in the house. I’m not sure if we’ve had a really intense summer in Sydney this year, but I felt like the aircon wasn’t doing much. I also bought a tower fan from Aldi and I felt like the Aldi fan provided more relief than the aircon. I was determined to make this work, kept it for 30 days. Tried on different days, played around with the tube to see if different positions worked better, tried turning...it on very early morning before the house was too hot. Unfortunately ended up returning the product with receipt and full packaging. I would like to believe that the aircon would work better in one single room, rather than trying to cool down a small granny flat. I need to point out that my house is not insulated so this could have made an impact on how well the product worked. I’ve never had any issues with Aldi products so I still believe that this would suit some people, just didn’t work for me. All I can say is im thankful for Aldi’s excellent return policy!
