hi guys, wondered if anyone read yesterday Strait Times

Courts having promotion for

Samsung Inverter Single Split
(ASV09ESLXXSS/ASV09ESLNXSS)
9000 or 8500 BTU i think
4 Ticks
$899 with 2yrs installation warranty + 5yrs extended warranty..


on the other hand i'm comtemplating this

Panasonic Inverter Single Split (CUS9KKZ/CSS9KKZW)
8530 BTU
4 Ticks
$1099

Other than Bukit Timah outlet, which other outlets have most aircon choices?
wanna do a comparison on the spot... so need more varieties as was told that ME no stock ...
i have bought this panasonic inverter aircon, so far its very good but do take note that this compressor is huge...

try read the manual, maybe the out door unit is design to be like that. some units will have delay after restart. the reason is to protect the compressor. still not sure then can try check direct with Mitsubishi.
anyway your is new unit any problem still under warranty coverage.

i will buy Panasonic then
if you got the extra budget then go for Panny.
Panasonic aircon used to named as National which was a durable, reliable brand for aircon and recent they took control of Sanyo too.

for aircon brands my personal choices will be
Daikin(big Jap name for aircon but premium. unit expensive, parts also expensive)
Panasonic, Mitsubishi Elect(reputable, reliable Jap brands, more common locally.)
Toshiba, Hitachi(also good Jap brands but not as popular as Panny and ME locally)
Sanyo(was told last time was good but recent heard some bad comments)
Fujitsu (heard complaints about noisy)
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries(not very long in local market so dont want take the risk test water)

installation and good workmanship play a very major part so dont just go for the cheap low price. better get a reliable reputable installer even it cost abit more.
still worry about quality and performance then can pay the extra go for the extended warranty.

think he looking for a Single Split so the outdoor unit size is not a problem. Single Split unit i see all very small.
those Panny big and tall unit are their sys 2 and sys 3.

What insulator did they provide you ?? Armaflex ?? 1/2" or 1/4" insulation ?

For your info : My colleague installed ME Starmex sys 3 inverter for $2700 nett in April 2010. Creation Air provide him standard package include bracket with G23 pipe and 3/8" insulation.

That's a very good price. Not stated for insulator, will update once they installed.

I understand Mitsubishi support the 1/2",1/4" and 3/8" insulation.
