4.0 out of 5 starsDecent cooler if you know how to use it effectively
15 July 2018
I have been using the Bajaj cooler for 2 months and hence posting the review Pros:-1)Compact and portable 2) Easy mobility with the help of castor wheels 3)It gives out nice cool breeze with the water filled in
Cons: 1) the plastic screws can be replaced with metal ones 2) the plastic body joints sometimes leaves little gaps so bajaj should think of making better bodies
I have some recommendations for those who are thinking buying this cooler or any cooler
1) Always measure your room dimensions first before buying a cooler For example if you expect this cooler to cool a room of 300 square feet it wont happen but if its meant for a room 150 sq feet and below it will serve the purpose 2) this cooler doesn't comes with humidity control so what's the best way to control humidity ? whenever you run the cooler and after the pump/cooling is tuned on after sometime you will feel that the cooler is not cooling that much that it was at the beginning when you started the pump ,the reason is the humidity level of the room is saturated.. so solution for this is turn off the pump and use the cooler fan only for some time and you get cooling again .. again after some time when you feel hot you need to turn on the pump..This is how humidity control works 3) Get a extension power cord which will cost you few hundreds which will help you to move the cooler to any part of the room 4)Get a water filling pipe which you can use to fill water from the back side as filling water with bottles or mug is not recommended as it will spill water on floor 5)And you have to manually move the louvers or grill up or down to get air on top or at floor level 6) Always keep some windows open to allow cross ventilation in room
After 26 days of purchase, the fan stopped working . On calling customer care and their visit I was told the motor is not working. Surprising that a new fan motor got burnt in less than 1 months. Speaks ??? for the quality cobtrol & parameters that the company maintains.
This Baja platni px97 (Rs 5600) is better than symphony hi cool cooler (approx rs 9k) , I am writing this review after using these coolers for almost 10 days.. First of all I ordered symphony hi-cool considering very attractive features, specially i-pure technology(pure air with no smell , bacteria etc) but these all features are false and only marketing strategy by manufacturer.. I returned symphony cooler after 9 days of use (started smelling even though I cleaned honeycomb pad once and also use to change water daily ,noise level was high, it was cooling was good in a particular direction but airflow was making uncomfortable) I returned and ordered this bajaj platni px97 and I am very much satisfied and happy with it..nose level is acceptable,cooling is good .can cool small room easily..airflow is smooth ..
Very good product it delivered very good airflow only the problem is it doesn't have filter so water rotate the pump it became bad smell acure in air.... I suggest clean the water every 3 days that's the better way to handle this. I suggest Baja to give some filter to clean the water.... Very bad fishy smell come to dirty water.
So, as a room cooler this product is excellent. Timely delivery by amazon. However, it has its pros and cons just like every product. Pro's: 1. Airflow, throw and swing are excellent. 2. Pretty cool air delivered if tank is full. 3. Doesn't take too much of space. 4. Sleek design, a beautiful piece for your room unlike the local made coolers. 5. Overall performance is superb. 6. Pretty cheap than other coolers of this capacity (Others brands like Symphony, Usha etc won't give you a 36 litre cooler for 5-5.5K) I bought mines for 5.5K, performance is far better than other coolers.
Con's: 1. Water inlet is too small. 2. Airflow is only sideways, not up and down. 3. For the areas with hard water, keep adding a little quantity of vinegar to the water periodically or else salts will start to be deposited in the pump. 4. you cant put ice cubes in it but yes you can put smaller ice cubes or crushed Ice.
And who says there isn't a water outlet in it. THERE IS, JUST TAKE A LOOK BELOW THE TANK. YOU'LL FIND A BLACK RUBBER PIECE. Wake up folks, it Bajaj, they don't like to make things visible just like others.
