i'm currently using Toshiba Invertor sys-4. Chose it mainly becoz it's compressor is made-in-japan, plus my parent's place also used Toshiba previously which lasted them for ~15 years!

my first invertor system was Fujitsu... which i had to repair after ~ 4 yrs of usage.

i'm a heavy user, btw, on ~ 12hrs every nite.

one thing to note was the Toshiba is very cold and i have to set it ~ 25-26C. It uses R410a gas, and the condensed water can be chilly to the point that it may cause sweating on the drainage pipes, even when it's insulated with ARMAFLEX.

Also, GC installed it for me.

haha. i was using Toshiba all the way from 1999 to 2009. now one of the compressors broke down.. thinking it'd be more economical to change the whole system instead.

btw i went to coolserve website - but the "advisor" seems to have limited selections for system3. is it updated ?

for NEA website, they only described how the tests were being done, but did not give data on the different air-cons tested.

any idea?
