We've had few really hot days so far this summer, so my toughest criterion (can I sleep with it turned on? I'm a light sleeper) hasn't yet met its real test, but so far this window air conditioner seems to have been a great deal. The box weighed 42 lbs., which I could just barely lift, but my daughter's boyfriend was happy to help, and it installed really easily, thanks also to excellent instructions in a PDF. I live in an odd-shaped studio apartment, shaped kind of like a capital Y, with the main room being one of the top branches and my computer workstation in the base of the Y, around 400 sq.ft. total. The unit has no trouble cooling the main room, which is about 170 sq.ft., and it's quiet enough that I can relax or work in that room without it getting on my nerves as air conditioners sometimes have in the past. That main room is where I sleep, and I'm learning to sleep with the unit on, so far I've only had to 3 or 4 nights, and I don't know yet what I'll think about sleepability by the end of the summer. The computer area at the base of the Y doesn't get nearly as cool even if I add a fan at the doorway of the main room, but a few days ago when it was 95 degrees and humid, after the unit had been on for an hour or two, it was cool and pleasant enough that I could work comfortably at the computer for the rest of the day, which was my 2nd criterion. I had very little money to spend and am very pleased that I was able to find something so inexpensive that works.

Such a great design and so easy to lift even forone who has had a couple of back surgeries and isa small person.I just can't stand how LOUD it is! DUE TO THE NOISE I STOPPED USING IT AND PUT THE FAN ON.Will have to use in another room other than a bedroom. SAD BECAUSE I WOULD HAVE LOVED TO PUT ONE IN EVERY BEDROOM CAUSE IT IS SO LIGHT, EASY TO INSTALL, LOOKS GREAT AND COOLS WELL.

Great little air conditioner

Comments about FRIGIDAIRE 5,000 BTU 9.7 EER 115 Volts Window Unit:
I put down the sound as a con but it is not that bad. When it is on high cool it becomes more noticeable but on low cool (which does the trick for my space) it is barely noticeable.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent for the price...
from Wagontown, PA
I read other reviews and I'm happy to say I agree with many others. My home is a loft, and not a small loft mind you (nearly 1400sf) and with the use of a vornado panel fan it cools my entire loft! (The fan circulates the air from the bedroom area towards the living room/kitchen area) I wouldn't have believed it myself had I not experienced it first hand. It was easy to install with the included hardware and I did not need extra foam or anything. The unit itself is quiet, I only had to quiet down a glass panel that was vibrating (it's a 100+ year old converted mill). Other than that, couldn't be happier with my purchase!
By satisfied customer
More than adequate for purchase purpose which was to cool bedroom @ night thus allowing central air to be turned off. Replaces noisy, energy chomping older unit so a relief both sleep-&-checkbook-wise.Minor quibble: cooling slightly uneven but almost irrelevant in small enclosed area.
NOT COLD ,ENOUGH
By Cabinet Man
About Me Quality Oriented
The room where it is used is about 80 sq. ft. and the ad indicates the 5000BTU should cool 100 to 150 sq.ft. It does not cool the room adequately and is disappointing because I had a Frigidaire several years ago and it was great even in a larger area. Perhaps they are making things so energy efficient they are cool inefficient.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Small and quite

Nice little bedroom A/C. Nicer unit then some of the off brand cheaper units on the market today.

Small but does the job
from Chicago IL
Probably best for just a small room, but I am using it for three rooms in a small apartment and it is cooling great (but I am running it on high 24/7). Front panel sometimes vibrates and gets noisy, but a little tap usually corrects this. Only negative is that the air flow direction control has a very limited range.
Service and delivery comments:
Ordered this online at the height of the Chicago heat wave in July 2012 and it was delivered the next busines day (hooray!). Arrived in excellent condition.

Great product; excellent service
I definitely recommend Abt Electronics. My air conditioner was delivered impressively quick; the unit was delivered to my building literally within one day of me clicking "purchase" online. The Frigidaire 5,000 has done a great job cooling my convertible studio. All in all, I'm satisfied with the unit, its price, and Abt service.

It is great that it cools off my room, is cheap, and is energy efficient.
came quickly, best price
By Jeer Mirth Nun
from Sac Jean So
I'm using this for a two-bedroom apartment, a bit bigger than it is recommended for. With a floor fan, you can expand it's reach a bit further than the recommended room size. Although it hasn't been tested yet in full summer here, it is working fine so far.
This air conditioner does work pretty well. Just keep in mind it's only for very small rooms. Also, the dimensions listed do not include the width of the side panels which add another few inches on either side. And, if you don't have hanging windows, you'll have to get creative with the installation. I am overall happy with it though, since it's inexpensive, cools the room down, and is actually pretty quiet as air conditioners go.
