If you want, I can recommend you the official installer for Daikin which they will do the installation if you walk in to the Daikin Proshop.
I will be getting mine from them around next month.
Last night i went through the massive information in this thread but i still need all the experts advice on purchasing system 4 aircon for my new 4rm bto.
I have narrow down to basically 3 models, Daikin/Mitsubishi Starmex/Panasonic and could also be keen in Toshiba since their compressor is made in Japan.
Initially i wanted to get the latest models but after reading the info here i realise that there are some factors worth considering, Noisy Compressor, Time taken to cool the room is longer, the product is still new etc and it is much more expensive by $500-$700. The good thing that it has more ticks and more cost savings.
Thus i am considering the older models and will most likely be getting from GC. this is the initial pricing i got from them have not ask what else it includes etc just want to narrow down and decide to get new or older models, need experts advice?
System 4- 4MKS30FSG-4xFTKS25DVM $3689 (older Model)
System 4- 4MKS80FSG 2xFTKJ25NVM & 2xFTKJ42NVMS $4759(newer model)
System 4- CU4S27NKZ- 3x CSS9PKZW, 1x CSS18PKZW $3709(older model)
System 4 - CU4XS32RBZ~4x CSXS9RKZW $4809 (newer model)
System 4 - MXY4A28VA~4x MSYGE10VA $3879 (older model)
System 4 - MXY4A28VA~3x MSYGE10VA ~ 1x MSYGE24VA $4009 (older model)

System 4 - MXY4G28VA~3x MSXYFJ10VE~1x MSXYFJ24VE $4599 (new model)
Really need any form of advice on purchasing aircon system 4. thanks alot
If u getting Dalkin, my advice is to check out the Proshops....do take note that different Proshop has different pricing though
Just added the latest Panasonic CS-XS system with 4 ticks. Quiet and no fuss. Also using the older CS-S system two in my living and study. Externally very little difference. Compressor noise also similar.
Sound levels comparable. For $400 difference, I think the 4 ticks will work out.
Right now, my installer says there's a $100 NTUC promotion, so that's a nice touch.
He says Panasonic parts are cheaper to replace and service, the remote is also cheaper to buy if needed. Made in Malaysia. Used Panasonic in my old home for 10 years, no issues.
Thanks a lot. I don't really under proshops but do they mean that they are the authorised distributor of Daikin? Do they accept installments? I read that most of them do not provide cables u got to buy yourself.
Thanks please keep all the advices coming in.
Basically you should think carefully about how much you save by going for an older, lesser brand, versus enjoying the latest energy saving tech, less noise etc.
I choose to save the earth, and pay a little more..
How about Electrolux aircon? Anyone has any opinions?
