You may want to check again if the 4MKS80FSG is 24k or 32k BTU.
4MKS80FSG
7.3 (3.3~10.5) kw ~ 25k btu (35k btu)

Can the compressor go over the rated btu? Or is there a limitation imposed on it? Wonder why some vendors spec the daikin sys 4 at 30k+ btu.

Thanks for the updated. Called Daikin that I haven't received my certificate, they re-send me a new copy
No regrets choosing Daikin and Silver Envi, love the overall features in Daikin compared to other brands.

Today newspaper advertise Toshiba compressor says made in Japan. Wonder if it's good
Haha alot of brand also use jap compressor. It is not the compressor but the pcb which spoilt easily. I quote from A gc sales guy, he say nowadays starmex pcb spoilt easily too, is heng suay. Hence he say better buy extended warranty. Midea n europace using jp compressor i believe

Hi guys. Currently looking to get aircon for my new 4rm BTO flat. My ID help me get from her contact she usually used and she told us:-

Daikin inverter
4MKS80FSG
FTKS25DVM*3
FTKS50FVM*1
$4200

She said the company is called NationCool. Any experience before?

Also, if anyone have any recommendation do let me know. Currently in the midst of finding one that is reliable and good. Not too sure if I should drop by the home decor fair to look look...
If daikin still got the free 3 yrs ext warranty, get it else get mhi. Mhi also made in thailand like daikin n cheaper

Mhi has ion for basic model while daikin need envi series for it. Anyone to verify?

Mhi giving 12k free upgrade becoz their 9k sold out in asean. Consider that many ppl are getting mhi over starmex. Also, imo starmex could be famous becoz of the ads n not becoz of its reliability. My starmex giving me problem now. Set to 22° also not cold. Think the compressor or fcu going to die soon.

Extended warranty is almost a must in current era of pcb build to spoilt after warranty period. However u must consider the reliability of the seller. If close shop like sls or California fitness, give u free warranty also no use

Daikin (only specialise on AC - u will not see it make TV, radio, fridge)
MHI just catch up recently ( on aircond dept cause by exposure of Mitsubishi Electric )
i will go for Daikin.. only my opinion...
Choose as u like...
but daikin envi still and early product... do not become white mice... go for older Daikin model - more reliable....

For some compressor or fcu, some brand they allowed the higher than reported btu when needed. I believe like LG 9kbtu but can go to 11k
