i dunno why so many people buy the 3 diamond brand, i think it's due to advertisement.

Panasonic and other brands are producing much better quality aircon FYI.....

I think you mean Hong Tar right? For those need the contact, do a search 'Hong Tar' in the net and will find the contact.

I bought my system 3 star mex from them, non-inverter 1.9K+ that time almost 1 yr ago. Service very good. They install the things properly and not rushing the work. They will go on-site to check & discuss where to lay the trunking. Arranged another date and will instal it.

Bought Mitshubishi coz it claims to be the quietest aircon at the point when i bought mine. And true enough, I don't find it noisy. I am those who cannot sleep with noise/ sound. Confirm wake up.

I think weather becoming more and more hot..so aircon price also go up..

I went to IMM last weekend and checked on Allbest and also Besttech, price is around $1838 (gst not in yet)

but after reading singaporebride....I think I better avoid them..haha

as for Mitsubishi...come to think of it...do you really clean the aircon yourself? so what if it's easy clean ?

I think most of us wouldn't bother to clean the aircon until something wrong, and when something wrong, it's too late to clean yourself also...haha

I am thinking of Daikin now...(Daikin makes only Aircon..think about it...)
any review on Daikin ??

it's not worth the money, i have heard enough bad comments about Daikin, although my aunt's place all daikin, no much problem. Think the workmanship is still the key, especially for Daikin brand.

Panasonic is still one of the most durable one. You dun wait until got problem then ask people clean lah, by right you shall clean the filter once every 3-4 months one.

aiyo, basic cleaning is just to take out the filter, wash it, dry it, then put back lah. If you want sophisticated cleaning, you shall engage the pro.....later spoil your aircon how?

90%? or "majority"? i dun think it's 90% lor.
