Hi bro,

You can actually call up some vendors to ask for quote first, I do believe LG is quite common now a days.

[QUOTE=serverxeon;102118382]Are you able to verify if it's brand new and not recondition ? Not aire prices are a good 200-300 cheaper than everyone else. Kinda suspicious




I've taken picture of the carton when it arrive with the serial numbers.
It tally with the items install. I register online ok. Go to LG service centre to collect the $300 vouchers and they key in all the items serial number.
Do you think is a recond set?

I went to Gain City previously and was told by the Staff there that if you want to get Samsung aircon, you might as well go for Midea as Samsung is made in China which is same for Midea so why pay the extra money for the brand, Samsung.

But do note that Midea has many aftersales issues which installers might not recommend so install at your own risks though, my advice is to get any Japanese aircon manufacturers still better.

any review on mitsubishi 5 tick inverter units? I am unsure of the difference between 4 tick and 5 tick, since the 5 ticks ones are new

Hi, not popular yet.. I got Midea for a few months.. working well. I was sceptical too the older models before Oasis & current Opal were crap.. so been using Opal the latest model.

Its as good if not better than the established brands.. Most imptly use good quality piping and copper..

Saved quite a bit.. and looking forward to at least 5 years of good service..

See budget see sizing see capacity. Both brands are good, so it's all down to your priority. Better electricity saving, or priority on faster cooling?

for a 150sqm house, to cool all 4 rooms (exclude hall)

priority should be savings, only turned on at night, for 8 hours at most. all 4 units will be turned on for sure without fail.

If all four units are turned on together for the whole night, then your have to get high capacity condenser. Or else each fcu will not be able to operate at it's full capacity, hence slower cooling.

If you want energy saving, then get this. 5 ticks.
http://www.coolserve.com.sg/htmdocs/products/products_details.aspx?id=3301&prodName=%27MXY-4G28VA%20/%204%20x%20MSXY-FJ10VE%27

However take note that it's capacity is not sufficient for all 4 to turn on at the same time. (you can, but It'll take longer to cool. Or, on simply don't switch them on at the same time. Wait until one is cool then on the other. Cos the initial cooling phase is the one that requires most energy)

To see other models http://www.coolserve.com.sg/htmdocs/coolAdvisor/cool_advisor.aspx?id=9
In just using it as a gauge. I'm not from coolserve
