I was a little hesitant at first however after installation Hitachi has my respect. Its less noisy than my carrier 1.5 ton windows AC. And cooling is much better than my samsung 1.5 ton split ac. Its a very good product and the price is better than its competition. Blowers are very strong. Remote is easy to use by my mother too. Only downside is the guys who came to install were unprofessional.
