So anyone get the Panasonic units? They seem to be heavily promoted by everyone right now.

I went to Best Tech and they told me to avoid Panasonic. They recommended either Sanyo or LG. Best Tech seemed pretty knowledgeable but not sure about their installation since several people here have complained. Anyone else use them recently?

My AirCon servicing company recommended Panasonic (which they sell) so not sure what to think.

personnally i take recommendations from retailers with a pinch of salt

unless they can back up their claim... like technology, material used, refridgerant used... etc.

then i'll personally take note of them and later google it myself.

my previous air-con service man (a free lancer) used to tell me panasonic air-cons are easy to service...

Hey Repsol. you use sys4 for 4 bed rooms or 3rm+1 living room?
What make you choose ME over MHI?
3rm + 1 living rm. well....i choose ME due to recommendation by quite a few friends. Not much ppl i know using MHI i supposed neways it's installed so i can't do much already if i need to change. lol. so far so good. Now just gotta see what happen in the next few weeks.

Mine done today too. 4 techs came in 9.30 chop chop 1.30pm done liao. Fast but workmanship wise is still quite good. The copper pipe used is Totaline. Insulation is K-Flex. Removed all existing trunking ducts and replace new one. Best Tech does everything as promised and nothing to complain indeed. Now finger cross it will last for years to come. But...

the MHI does not live up to my expectation. First, it wasn't as cool as my old Hitachi non-invertor. Is that because Invertor type energy saving actually come from the "not so cold" gimmick? I remember read from some forums a user complained about her ME "not cold enough" - I cannot understand back then but i do now. The aircon just don't give me the "Wow! Cold sial" feeling. Instead, it just like "ah, at least here cooler than outside" nia.

2nd, the MHI when turned on, has a high frequency "yink yink" noise like motor lack lubrication. The noise come from the FCU as 3 of them exhibit the same. It is very irritating. I am not sure if the noise will go away when the FCU run in, or not. I may wait for few day to see if it settle down. Else I will feedback to Best Tech to get MHI come down.

3rd, very funny when i turn on the vertical swing, the fin do not swing fully from top-most position to bottom-most position. It only swing down half way then go up again!? So the area direct under the FCU is not "blown". It is not as cold as other area of the room. :-( Don't know why the design like that haiz...

Btw, in case you ask, the MHI are made in Thailand not China. But so what...with the above problems...haiz

Interesting, thanks. I guess I'm definitely not getting the ME/MHI units from what I read in the postings below. I will have to check out actual working units (Panasonics and Sanyos) before making my next decision.

My wife keeps telling me to get the same set of LGs to keep things consistent, but I don't wanna. I like playing with different toys

im planning to get a system 3 inverter aircon soon. i've asked Gain and best tech, both recommended mitsubishi as the best. seems best tech (at tpy) has better overall price offered compared to price given to me at Gain (marina). any comments or feedback on these two? thanks!

i have mix of panasonic and mitsubishi units. i have no problems with both.

Panasonic remote, must point in general direction of aircon to use. Mitsubishi (and Sanyo), can point any direction usually can operate.

Panasonic has a 'quiet' mode ideal for home theatre rooms after initial cooling is done.
