The best air conditioner ever

I have it on high and it’s not loud at all I can turn my TV on level 5 and I can hear perfect.
I had an LG and that one was really loud and it broke and I replaced it with this one and it works real well for me. Good luck and returning your LG one if you bought one customer service don’t answer the phone I got nowhere with him I had to bite the bullet I was out 460.00.

Does the job

So far so good. Not for a very big space but works well for the bedroom.

Reasonable Price

Excellent product for a reasonable price. Extremely impressed with the performance, noise and look of the Toshiba air conditioning unit. Recommended.
Purchased this because of Toshiba’s quality, reliability and the stylish good looks. Really impressed with the performance. 2 years trouble free operation so far. Hasn’t missed a beat.
Remote could be better laid out although have seen worse.
