My friend has a Panasonic. After a while, it gave away some smell. Terrible smell.
By the way, Mitsubishi will also give away some smell and it is not so easy to clean, contrary to what Jack Neo said in the Mitsubishi TV advertisement.

Forget about the korean brands, nightmare will start after two years. Panasonic....errr Looks like Daikin will be a good bet.
Daikin should be a good buy. No wonder, it is so expensive but guess it is worth it. Only a hundred plus difference.

[QUOTE=terumo;52861154]One reason that i can think of why Courts duh sell Daikin.
Daikin equipment price is expensive compared to others.
Check out Courts promo, always promo for Samsung/LG/Panasonic.[/QUOTE

Daikin is slightly more expensive. if it is really that good, maybe can save on maintenance cost.

If a Brand is good, it will save u some $ on repair as a good brand doesnt break down that often.
For maint wise, i feel that all brands will still need to be serviced, just that how often u need to service it, depending on your usage.

I have Mitsubishi system 4 + system 2 (total 6 units). Easy to clean and no smell? If the room is so dirty that there is mould/bacteria growing inside your aircon, don't blame the brand of aircon.

Anyway, some of the Mitsubish units have a 'clean' function that performing self cleaning after compressor shutdown to inhibit the growth of mould etc.

Thumbs down

just to share my experience at IMM

yday went to IMM enquiry about aircon...went to GC and AB..

there is one sales in AB who serve us..attitude is kinda good...till we wanna buy from them..untill we realise that they don hav instalment scheme, thus we said that we want to reconsider..we ask for a namecard.

that guy gave us a name card with his name on it.." CASH"..he said he is called CASH..at that time we just laugh and smile at him and said" You call cash ah...so means very lucky la"...

till we got home...my wife think n think...then realise that that guy may be wanna insult us..course we want to pay via instalment...not full cash..thus we play a prank on us by saying he is call "CASH"!

maybe i will call back AB to see if there anyone by the name "CASH" tomorrow to confirm! i still have the namecard with me though...

Dear Forum
Need to seek advice if any1 here is using the Daikin Inverter System 4
4MKS80ESG? It runs on R410A gas and the price is on the high side. Isit good?

Or the 4MKD75DVM which runs on R22 gas is good enough? cos the price difference between the 2 models is quite significant... any advice from pros? need to get a system to replace my current MA56EV1...

the smell caused by the dirt and mold in the aircon roller. ask you friend do some serving/cleaning.


http://panasonic.net/ir/relevant/en0...n040830-1.html

Osaka, Japan, August 30, 2004 - Daikin Industries, Ltd., a global leader in the manufacture of commercial and industrial use air conditioning systems, and Matsushiita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd. (MEI [NYSE symbol: MC]), best known for its Panasonic brand of consumer electronics and digital communication products, today announced that the two companies will establish a joint venture company, Daikin Motor Suzhou Co., Ltd., in China. The new company will manufacture and market motors for compressors in home and industrial-use air conditioners.
Daikin and Panasonic got a joint venture in china making aircon compressor.
so both brands should be using parts from same source.
if the aircon not cold, its might due to installation issue.
