For my review I’ll focus on the De’Longhi PAC EX100 Pinguino.
DeLonghi PAC EX100 Review:
As a 3-in-1 air conditioning unit you can select from AC mode, dehumidifier & fan mode.
Buyers love how quickly it cools medium to large size rooms.
Power: 10000 BTU
Area: 110 m³ (250 sq. ft.)
The PAC EX100 unit comes equipped w/ new “Real Feel” function.
“Real Feel” Technology: AC will automatically modify its speed/power to for an ideal room temp + humidity level (using dehumidify mode)
Compared to similar 10.000 BTU units, the De’Longhi Pinguino EX100 operates 20-30% more quietly.
De’Longhi PAC models are nearly silent when maintaining a temperature — great for bedroom AC units.
Noise Level (dBs): 47-50 decibels
(normal conversation is 50-60 dBs)
De’Longhi Pinguino Functions:
Using the remote control you can select the operation mode (i.e. air conditioning vs. fan) or set an exact temp.
Pinguino units will run max speed initially but will lower speed as it gets closer — buyers suggest that you pre-cool rooms using the remote control.
Pre-cooling is especially useful if using as a bedroom air conditioning unit.

bedrooms, dormitories, city flats, small offices, home theaters, small basements

De’Longhi PAC EX100 Pinguino Review:
The De’Longhi PAC EX100 Pinguino has very good buyer reviews online — it’s already a top seller in 2019.
It has better features than most portable air conditioning units.
Personally I think Delonghi’s PAC units are the best for option for bedrooms — light sleepers love the whisper-quiet noise level.
The EX100 Pinguino is not cheap, but De’Longhi’s reputation for producing durable AC units is a benefit to keep in mind — it should last 6+ years.
A++ Class rating for energy efficiency (which is very rare) will save money on electricity costs year-over-year.
Some mixed reviews, but mostly positive.
For anyone looking for a portable air conditioner for a bedroom or medium room — I think the De’Longhi PAC EX100 Pinguino is worth taking a look at.
