I see, thanks. I also found out that Daikin has various authorized installers besides those listed in the Website which is their authorised dealers.

Guess as long as the installers are using Armaflex or Thermaflex insulations then it should be good.

mitsubishi (Starmex) is quietest. not that daikin is noisy. A lot of it depends on how quiet your environment is also i.e. your room is only as quiet as the noisiest object

I noticed that many people like to go for Mitstubishi Starmex. Just went to Gain City flagship today and found out new Panasonic is same price and it's blade can rotate left right plus ionizer to clean the air while Starmex does not have these 2 function.

Design wise I think it is subjective but both are pretty sleek.

If price is factor then Daikin is actually cheaper.

Can those who bought Starmex explain what is the deciding factor to go for it?

An update.
Got my toshiba system 4 installed y'day by A**b****.

Overall experience is good. Installer is very experience. He told me he has 20+ yr exp. Did the installation from 1030 to 1500 hrs including dismantle my old system 3. Very fast and very neatly done. The only thing he uses 13mm instead of 16mm drainage pipe which differ from my sales contract.he told me 16mm cannot lay tilt properly. He mentioned my old one is 16mm and there is water retain in the pipe when he dismantle. Quite true as there was a time I experience water leakage from one of the fcu.

Toshiba is quite powerful and able to cool the room and hall very fast. Outdoor unit is quiet too.

So far happy with the purchase. Total damage include 5 yrs extended warranty is 4500 with new bracket.

I upgraded to 0.5 inch armaflex. Bracket too small to reuse. Keep it to g23 pipe.
Actually on hind sight, there is no need to upgrade. I see they the whole installation and gut feel is that these upgrades are a bit overkill as I will redo the whole installation if I ever need to change the aircon. Anyway, it's just me.

For those who are considering Daikin, DIS offers FOC site inspection, Fortuna charges $50 which can be refunded if you order from them.
