needed a water cooler that could cool my business and this seems to do the job just right. if you put ice in it and makes the cooling process even faster.

I ordered directly from Honeywell because many of the big box stores insist on a lesser quality product to cut cost. I received my cooler and it was easy to unpack. Plugged it in, added water and walla I had cool air. I am very satisfied with the product.

Nice for Bedroom
Rating: 4 to 4.5 pretty darn good!
I use this unit for my medium-medium small bedroom in semi-arid So.California ...gives off nice cool air, has convenient remote, tolerable fan noise I think of it as white noise, humidity/cooling level adjustment knob inside top ice cube compartment. Really cuts back on electric bill by allowing spot cooling of specific areas of my home. I do find it a bit difficult to read the print on the units control panel & the remote. The water tank is quite large so I don't have to be run to refill it frequently during high use days. When purchasing an evap cooler it's important to pay attention to the sq footage it's recommended for as this will coincide with the level of air flow from the unit...the larger the area an evap cooler is good for the cooler & more force of air flow coming from a particular unit..that is very important to understand so you get the best unit for the intended area you plan to use it for. Using these evap coolers in humid conditions is not effective humidity over 50-60% won't allow for effective cooling. You MUST have good ventilation by way of open windows & doors or your room will become like a warm/hot swamp. It's important to know that algae, mold & bacteria will grow if you leave water sitting in the tank for extended periods of time. You must run the unit on fan only mode after using it in cooling mode to allow the honeycomb wetting pad to dry & prevent mold & odor accumulation.
Good for average sized bedroom.
Holds large volume of H2O.
Remote is convenient & has convenient side pocket holder.
Moves considerable volume of air
Large water port on side of unit
Easy access ice cube apartment to top of unit increases cooling effect
small print on control panel & remote difficult to read as print is small & black on grey background.
Water level indicator is a bit difficult to read as its a white plastic float-style piece that bobs in the water tank...takes some getting used to.
Panel to back of unit has 12 screws that are cumbersome & must be removed to access honeycomb wetting pad & to allow inspection of inside of water tank for potential algae/mold growth or other maintenance would be nice to have some way of opening it other than numerous small screws.
