When I received, it was astonishingly easy to connect the hoses - they just slide in. It is super quiet compared to my last one - Let's put it this way when the AC is on it is as quiet as when my last one was on fan only! Well worth the extra money spent!
Well designed and attractive to the eye. If you have never installed an A/C, this unit will be the easiest you ever install. It literally took more time to take it out of the box than to install it. The a/c is small in size and has wheels meaning you can move it easily.
