Sam, IT engineer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Quieter than other portable units I've used

Relatively light weight, so easier to move

Remote control simple and effective

Window adapter allows narrow window opening
Bad points:
Noticeably less powerful than my previous 9000BTU unit

Plastic casing expanding/contracting with temperature change occasionally causes loud clicks which negate the benefits of quieter fan/compressor

Neither remote nor LCD displays current room temperature like other units do, only the target

Side handles are quite sharp, not very comfortable to use

Window attachment can quite easily become detached when moving hose

Expensive for an 8500BTU unit

Fan speed goes lower in A/C mode than can be selected in Fan only mode

Glossy casing is a bit of a dust magnet

Filters a bit gimmicky, probably not a substitute for a proper air purifier as I had initially hoped
