      • Great Cooler for decent size room

      Bought this cooler to replace a BonAir cooler who's pump motor was dying and too loud. Had intended to buy the 700CFM model, but they were all out and there was only ONE 500CFM unit left, so I grabbed it. MUCH sturdier unit compared to the BonAir. And a little more compact, despite it's dimensions. This unit has a much better air flow throughput than the one it's replacing. It puts out more air on LOW than the old unit did on HI. And I like the oscillating louvers that you can let sweep the room, or stop it with the remote control when it's pointed right at you for that "Ahhhhhhh......" moment. It holds five gallons of water, which lasts quite a while apparently. If it does run out of water and you're not there, it sounds a brief alarm and turns off the water pump leaving the fan running. As I said, it moves a good deal of air, even on LOW. And the sound level isn't too bad. You can easily listen to TV with it sitting next to you. Turning up the fan speed increases the sound level, but it doesn't seem to increase the amount of air flow as much as the sound would indicate. Low speed works in our room. The fan is an efficient "squirrel cage" design so it's fairly quiet. Rolls easily even with water in it. And it has an unusual feature: An Ice Chamber. On top of the unit is a plastic lid/door where you find the Water Control knob. (You want it FULL ON anyway) The water from the pump flows through this area so as to distribute the water to flow down over the cooling pad/filter. You can dump ice cubes into this area to cool the water before it goes to the cooling pad for greater cooling effect. Does seem to work, but the ice melts fast. You'll need a lot of ice on hand if you want to keep it full. But the normal cooling operation seems to work fine by itself. Definitely cools our little room. The ONLY thing I can gripe about is the fact that there is NO external indicator of any kind that tells you what the water level is. I found that odd. Still, I'd recommend this unit if you're looking to cool a small to medium size room. Will it cool as well as A/C? No. But then, no Evap Cooler can. This does what it does well.

      Pros Easy to Use, Sturdy, Nice Design, stable and rolls easy, high air flow Cons no water level indicator
