I was planning to buy a AC for a new house, previously I was having a LG 1.5 Tons and Godreg 1 Ton at other house. I came across a offer of IFB 1 Ton 5 star for a price tag of 26 K which was 3-4 cheaper than other brand for same tonnage which were available offline and online.
I was bit skeptical as never heard anything about this brand except that it was market leader in industrial and high end washing machine, also not many reviews were available online for the product.
I found the specifications and description of the product as very good and hence decided to buy this against all odds, The product was delivered within 2 days, thanks to Homeshop 18 superior services and was installed next day as homeshop 18 only tied up with the OEM for installation. The installation was pretty smooth and AC was available to me for full use within 3 days of ordering
Few are the cons of the AC:
1. Being a 5 star, power consumption is compareably lower than other 3 or 2 star AC, which also include my previous experiences
2. Cooling is great and it take just few minutes to cool the room
3. Remote is ergonomically designed and very handy especially at dark room
4. Not being a technical guy, I cannot comment on wear and tear of the AC but as an customer I got full satisfaction wrt the requirements what I had
I will rate it higher than my previous AC's when compared to efficiency and performance. Also the support is very good , although never required till now.
Overall a great product at fantastic price
