Hi aceone10, i wrote to Kimura via fb and they replied:

"The pan swing is done manually. We have opted out from the auto swing function reason being it has not been feasible for many users and even many brands due to squeaking sound and getting jammed at times furthermore replacing this fins may cost besides the spare part availability.
I believe that you want a wider range of cool air coverage."

so i guess that's a no go

oh well.

I guess i'll just stick to MHI

So their new stocks had no more horizontal swing features?? So am I lucky or unlucky to have mine with the vertical and horizontal swing??

I'm in the market looking for a system 3 to install in my current flat. Any recommendations? I see this brand Kimura appearing in this thread, can the users review on this brand?

My budget is about 3k including installation.

Thanks!
See my post no. #4436, I had given some info. but only as a user for nearly 2 months. So far so good. I got it at their promo S$ 2299. if i remember correctly, their retail price was near to 3k.

I got it from Aircon Design and maybe you should check with them for full detail. My house got aircon ledge so no need bracket. So far no problem from the installation and seriously i also dont know what material they used to install for me.

My son suffer from a bad asthma attack for the first time in February (and he is only 5 years old), so bad that we have to rent the aspirator set from the clinic to put him on the breather for 5 days. Every morning since very young he will wake up sneezing and a bad block nose that sometime he find it hard to breath and start crying.

Since my previous aircon is giving me so much problem, I decided to change until i came across this brand. Maybe out of desperate for my son I decided to try this "kimura" brand bah. So far he had not sneezed that much in the morning and had not complaint about difficulties in breathing for the past 2 months. So i guess the air con function is working fine.

That's all i can share. Think I will stop here about this aircon brand for good or ppl start to think I am selling this brand in this forum.

Installer is very important. Previously also bought a Toshiba air purifier for my son and within 15 month kabo liao. During those bad haze day, squeezing with my 2 kids in the masterbed room to share 1 aircon and air purifier. Now all my 3 bedrooms aircon got built in air cleaner so much easier. But will still hunt for another air purifier just for standby for my son just in case when haze is back with psi shooting pass 100.

My previous aircon is Daikin, good for a year plus and after that is headache issue. Most annoying is the rumbling noise that just cannot be solved and the condenser keep having a high pitch noise during operation and my neighbour also mentioned to me about some pitch noise at night do not know from where. I diam diam all the way. . 1 remote controller spoilt after 1 year. the horizontal flipper in masteroom breaks. The rubber vertical manual flipper became dark moldy and thinner overtime until 2 out of 5 just drop off during operation. the 1 in the last bedroom seldom switched on through out the year yet is the worst of all with the rumbling noise. I have to pick up the TV remote to give it a push then it stopped for a good few minutes and the noise return.

Now I think all brand comes from China bah. Even car also make in Thailand. A jap made car compare to Thai made although under the same brand confirmed there is a different in quality standard. I knew because I car siao also and based on collected user feedbacks from people i know.

Brands nowadays very much depend on marketing and branding. Everyday you hear brand A, see brand A. Overtime, ppl will learn to accept. Just when Samsung first came to the market, everybody avoid. With agressive marketing, Samsung now very well accepted not because they have superior quality but acceptable quality. It was the marketing that sell the brand. I too bought a washing machine back then when the brand is new. At that price back then, it still worth it not because it is fantastic but lasted for 10 years though before I changed to an LG.

Condo in Singapore mostly comes with Mitsubishi and Daikin probably for the same marketing reason bah.

my opinion nia..

if your read to my post as an ultimate review to my new aircon, is either I just wasted my time or my england is not "powderful" enough.

if I were to write full story to include making calls to serviceman, what was spoken, what and bla bla bla, 3 pages also not enough.

so I will just let this topic rest and I do respect your view.

everyone in read have a goodnite and weekend.

just stumble upon this thread in HWZ.

I want to replace my old sys 3 air con for my HDB.
Mine is not concealed piping.
I am looking at budget brand.
