I using toshiba made in japan and slightly cheaper den Mitsubishi.

Sales people at quite a few places told me Mitsubishi is priced more exp and popular because of their aggressive marketing campaign.

you can check NEA for the each aircon performance and result. they did sent in their units for testing.

for toshiba only the out door compressor is made in japan. from what i see Gain City now seem to be keen on pushing Toshiba, using Made in Japan as the selling point. maybe they got higher selling profit and commission? 2years ago they used to push Hitachi.
daikin are made in china now but doesn't mean their products are inferior. the brand still charging premium and there people still willing to pay.
think all or most brand offering 5yrs warranty for the compressor, the rest of the parts like in-door unit 1yr. the aircon and piping installation workmanship play a very big part too. the only thing you really can count on is the warranty. if you really worry then can pay extra and opt for the extended full 5yrs warranty for the whole air con system, some places are offering these extension.
daikin, mitsubishi, panasonic, toshiba, hitachi, sharp all Japanese brands should be ok.
just pick the one base with you expectation of price, performance, design, warranty..etc.

Daikin got plants in china and there internet sources commenting about product quality due to place of production.
i remembered 1 Gaincity sale guy did told me Daikin was made in china now.
maybe Daikin compressor made in china, the FCU still made in thailand.
any way my point is there are Made In China Daikin Aircon in the market now. just because the aircon was made in China doesn't it must be lousy product. Daikin still a big brand in the aircon market, the quality and standard should be there. some consumers might feel safer and more confident with the place of production but if the manufacturer can maintain and guarantee the high standard and quality of their products, the place of production wont be a big issue.

other brands i heard made in china now are sanyo and carrier.
the rest japan brands still thailand and malaysia.

Quiet Compressor

Does anyone know of a compressor (inverter unit) that is very quiet..

I stay in an old 3 room HDB flat and the compressor is just outside my master bedroom. My neighbour downstair complained my compressor noisy
