Great performance and reliablity
After a lot of research we bought the unit because, even though I could have gotten a window-mount room a/c cheaper, I did not want to be restricted to just that room. We bought the unit because we frequently loose power for extended periods of time during hurricanes and we did not want to leave our home. We already have a portable generator. As luck would have it, our upstairs a/c unit quit and ended up being out of service for several days. We immediately set up the P12B and it performed flawlessly and constantly over the outage period. It kept our large BR and bath comfortable and we are very pleased with the product.

The unit was purchased for my Granddaughter since her family does not have central A.C. and she operates such in her bedroom. My Granddaughter is quite pleased with the results as are her parents since not having children in bed with them (their room has a window unit) has been the return of their sex life!!!! Okay, everyone wins!

Unit is not overly noisy even on high. It sits in our den and we can hear the TV without any problem. Set up took 15 minutes and controls are easy to use. It has been running off and on for 2 weeks in very hot humid weather (90-98') and there's been no water accumulation in the condensate tray. Evenly cools about 625 square feet of our home. The unit is a bit more $$ than others in the same BTU range but Friedrich's reputation for quality is worth it. Highly recommended.

While not the most beautiful thing to look at, it performs just as advertised. Cools down a 400 sq foot room very nicely. Not as loud as some other manufacturers. Controls and operation are extremely simply and easy to use. The whole unit has a strong and durable feel to it. Roller wheels are heavy duty, which makes it easy to move. Self-evaporating system seems to work very well, as I have never had to drain it (however, it is still early in the summer). Overall, I would give the unit high marks.

Be prepared as summer quickly approaches against uncomfortable heat and wearisome air with the Friedrich P12B ZoneAire 11600 BTUs portable air conditioner. Breathable air is important to your work performance and health, so don't jeopardize your productivity, instead rely on the P12B ZoneAire portable AC for comfort. Perfect for home offices and medium sized rooms, the Friedrich P12B ZoneAire has a LCD remote control, 3 fan speeds, and a moisture removal system. Also, no unnecessary electricity is wasted during the cooling process thanks to the environmentally friendly R-410A refrigerant. Operating with an evaporative condensate system that reduces the amount of moisture collected in the bucket, the Friedrich P12B ZoneAire portable AC has less mess than other portable air conditioners. Should the tank become full the unit will automatically shut off and can easily be emptied using the outlet drain without the hassle of lifting a heavy bucket.
