I like it, but there are a few nits...
First off, I love the look of this unit. Call me shallow, but I'm a sucker for 'cute' appliances. But, there are things I do not like:
- While the description touts "8-way positioning" of the output, that's just not true. The air comes out of this unit at a 45 degree angle, perpendifular to the unit front, e.g, if this unit is at the foot of your bed, the air will fall over the bed (cold air drops, remember?). Despite my attempts, there is no way to divert the air to the right or left, so, if you require instant gratification from the cold air blast, position the unit accordingly.
- The controls are on top of the unit. Therefore, one has to be standing above the unit to see the current temperature setting. The remote seems to work from any angle.
- The remote is perfect if you can see it. Since there are no buttons or any tactile feedback, using it in the dark is hit or miss.
3 days into my new purchase and I'm happy with it. My room is slightly larger than the specs dictate, and setting the unit at 75 in 80-90 degree Atlanta weather works fine. I also use a fan to circulate the air.
Update: I've had it about a month now, and the love is still there. It's around 80 degrees and humid at night here during the peak of Summer, but it is 72 degrees and 40% humidity in my bedroom. This AC works great. I don't even use the remote, though, it's still on my nightstand. Actually, all 3 of my initial gripes above are non-issues a month into owning this great appliance.
Another reviewer mentioned it was hard to install. Huh? I was able to install this unit by myself on the second floor of my house in 30 minutes flat. It took more time to read the manual.
One last thing: Don't by a window support bracket. It's included.

Missing good features of model 75062
We were looking for a light weight AC that my husband and I could easily carry and install. The weight listed was great, so we ordered this model. When it arrived in the store we expected it to be an improvement on model 75062. What a disappointment. I did not take the new AC out of the store. When the salesperson opened the box we found that this AC has no grill to cover the fins on the back which are easily mashed, nor does it have hand holes like the 75062. Unfortuately these two qualities, grill cover for fins and hand holes are not listed in the description so I had to order the AC before I could find out. The weight was listed on line, though.
