We have two Cora's in the house now, a 7kw in the lounge and 3.5 in the bedroom. These replaced older Daikin's and the difference is incredible. The power saving on our bill is probably a good 50% at least to what we were paying! We'd use the old ac's very sparingly and only when unbearably hot due to costs to run but now joke with each other saying these one's are free, lol. We run them almost all the time now without worrying about the power bill. It's fantastic
They're both very quiet, old ones were making funny gushing air sounds and no on...e could work out exactly why so these are like a Godsend. Cool really quick too, great features on remote. Worth the cash outlay for sure We've only recently found out there's an indoor, and outdoor 'quiet' mode. We thought just having the fan speed set to lowest setting was quiet.. Well with quoet mode on we think it's too quiet! So prefer the faintest bit of sound while sleeping and don't use it. That's how quiet these things can be Both installers told us they have Cora's throughout in their own homes so thar should tell you something

Noisy rattling even after several repairs
Unit has a loud rattle that changes with the fan speed. Daikin has been to repair the unit twice, and has even replaced the fan unit and the rattle still persists. Remote is slow to respond, so it takes a very long time to change the temperature.

I love my Daiken!
This aircon is wonderful. It’s cold, quiet and easy to clean and run. Very happy Daiken customer, it’s very refreshing on humid weather. Best Investment I’ve ever made! Highly recommend

The aircon work like magic
Hi pages DCM air conditioning installer.
The indoor and outdoor machine are almost no noise when running.
Cool the room in minutes even on 30 degree weather outside.
A bit pricey.
So far very happy with the purchase.

Just what I needed
Just love it. Couldn't live without it don't know why I waited so long. Love how it has a remote control and a wall mounted control just in case you misplace the remote which I do quite often

Don’t know how I lived without it!
Simple to use, easy to set menu, the wifi app works great, heating extremely quick and efficient and quiet. Cooling the same. Nice unit to look at not bulky. I
It’s a perfect split system!
Eastwood Air Conditioning provided & installed our air cond. We have it for nearly 2 years. It’s installed in our lounge area & cool the room down within minutes.I can use the oven even it’s like 37c outside.If we leave it long enough, it can cool our bedrooms. We have it on for over 10 hours on a hot weekend. The quiet function makes it good if we have it on at night.

Perfect cantilever without it
Quite system quick install cools room quickly on power mode, cheap price good quality great value for money will recommend to everyone if looking at buying inverter keeps power costs down
Functions as described, except it has an inconsistent rattle. Even after two "repairs".
It heats and cools as described. But unfortunately within a few months it developed a rattling sound. This sound is inconsistent, meaning some times it occurs and other times it doesn't. The rattling isn't ridiculously loud, but certainly loud enough to hear when the unit is running during the night.
We have had the unit repaired twice, both times being told that "this is a common fault" and the fix should rectify the issue. Unfortunately it has not.
Paid a premium of over $200 for what we thought was the best build quality compared to other brands, regret the decision.
Great Air Con
Been using my Daikin Q series for nearly a year now so far so good, it cools and heats the house very well, and the outside unit is super quiet.

Be careful of false advertising
Daikin has advertised this previously (before my purchase) as having a photocatalytic filtration system -I could not find this filtration system, and Daikin refused to confirm if they actually had it. This matter has been forwarded to the relevant authorities. Works well however, will emit a bad smell if left on auto fan mode. Quiet operation, given the filtration system I would opt for the panasonic or LG as in my Opinion they have a better filtration system.
Ordered this unit when our old Daikin broke. Very happy! You could immediately feel the difference! It’s very easy to operate and quiet to run. It’s the only unit in our 3-bedroom house and it does a great job of heating and cooling the whole house.

Powerful and quiet
High quality unit, worth the price premium. Quiet and effective, easy to use. Head unit small for the output. 7kw unit was correct size for our family room, which is large with west windows.
Purchased in November 2018 for $1,890.00.
Whisper quiet, cools entire house.
Installed, it cost about $3200.
It's quiet and you never hear it running, have had it for about 4 months now. Your dealer may tell you it's not WiFi compatible, apparently their WiFi units are intended for the smaller systems and don't fully work with the larger units.
However, we had them do it anyway and they wanted to see if they even could. It does work, can be tricky to sync up, multiple closes of the app on the phone were required, and it doesn't have all the features.
Can basically turn it on and off when you are out of home and cha...nge the settings, temp settings, but not the fan speed - apparently that's what you miss. Not entirely sure why as the smaller systems work fine. Cools the entire house extremely quick for reference it's a 4 bedroom with a granny flat, it will keep the lounge and hallways cold, the cool will seep into the rooms and granny flat as well.

Widespread noise fault with hideous after sales service
5 months ago had this unit installed in my 2 year old bedroom: 3 months after installation the unit developed a clicking noise. Installers advised issue with motor and needed to call Daikin for warranty service. When calling Daikin twice I've been on hold 20 minutes, the first time to be told to fill in a form, scan it in and email back to log a service request. I then had to call a couple of days later (another 20min wait) to see where my request was. I was told I needed to wait 4 business days for a Service Request number, strangely I ha...d a service number emailed to me 30min after the call. As of this report, this service ticket has been in the system for a week and still no response from Daikin until I followed up with a call. The noise is getting louder and now my little one can't sleep when it's on. Whatever you do, do not buy one of these split system units. You pay a premium for budget after sales service and the worst performing aircon unit I've ever installed.

Noisy Rattle - supposed to be quiet - NOT!
Was sold this unit on the promise of it being the quietest on the market but its been nothing but a hassle since installed - with both the installer admitting that it is faulty and replacing parts, and now Daikin Australia attending twice and still working to fix it. I've been very underwhelmed by this unit. Overall, a poor experience.
Efficient and ideal for large sized rooms (40 sq meters)
After reading a couple of negative reviews on this unit from ieatwords, I was a bit hesitant - what if there is an issue with this particular model (7.1 Cora). To my delight, the unit has proved to be energy efficient and effective in cooling and heating my open plan kitchen and dining area. I am thrilled with the siginifcantly reduced energy costs compared to my central airconditioning with add-on heating, as I'm able to compare power consumption information in real time via my Fronius Smart Meter (solar panel system accessory). I will ...install the optional wifi module and PCA board to enable control of this unit via the internet soon. I think this will be a valuable on extremely sunny days, where I can turn on this unit whilst still at work, and therefore cool the house down when there is excess power produced by the solar panels. Will help keep my indoor plants cool. :) Not to mention a more comfortable home when I come back from work in the evening on those scorching hot summer days. $3030 inclusive of GST fully installed (back to back) with wall bracket onto brick wall at ground floor level including separate circuit breaker to the switchboard, with plastic conduit covers; I felt this was quite reasonable and the installers were reasonably careful to reduce dust levels when drilling through the external brick work. The only negative that I have about this unit is that there doesn't seem to be an anti mould function anymore. This is where the unit continues to run the fan on the internal air handler unit at low speed after the unit is powered of. This extended fan operation is designed to dry out the coils, thereby avoiding mould from developing. My other (older) Daikin 3.5 kW unit has this anti mould function but no the new one.

One of the beat brand on which you can trust.
One of the best aircon. Dakin is very good brand. I am having three dakin cora in my bedrooms so thought to go for same in my lounge room. These units comes with r32 gas which is more efficient in terms of cooling and power consumption. Both indoor and outdoor units are quiet .
Much better than other brands
Got this for our living room as the old air con for example used over 15kw in a day during summer last year and was way to much for a single room. This unit cut the cost down to about 2-8kw depending on settings and how hot or cold it is outside but still cut down cost heaps
