We regularly used the medium size during summer in the living room. It did work much better with the ice cubes added to the tank and it has an air purifier too which is cool. Works pretty decent and easy to move around albeit have had an issue with remote at times but just need that sweet spot I guess or just do it manually!
What a rip off.
Worked once then just blew room temperature air, even when we put ice in the water. What a rip off. Very disappointed. It was so good the first time we used it, hubby thinks it was coated in something designed to work a short time then wear off. Very sad.

Just turns the room into a sweat shop
Just turns the room into a sweat shop. I am disappointed because it has not performed as it should was faulty. But I have to pay for the Freight back to tvshop

For its size it does the job fairly well. Really great that it’s also light so I can move it from one place to another easily. Excellent product I might say!
Savings on Powerbill!
This product is a must have. It’s the healthier way to cool down during hot weather and most importantly, I managed to save money just by using this product. I prefer the 09 EX model due to its humidity control function and very easy to clean. If you don’t know much about how this unit works, call the company and you will receive informative information on how to get the best use of the product.

DO NOT BUY IT
I would not recommend it at all
My dad ask me to purchase this as he saw this on the tv. Waste of time and money because its not your average air con if you want cold air dont buy this its like buying a fan and inserting water.its noisey very loud, waste of energy too. And when I try to return it and the lady never call me back which went past my 30 days trail then I had to call back again. Make sure you do your research before buying product waste of money stay away !!!!

What Ever You Do, Do Not Buy
The unit is very noisy, does not operate as indicated on the Television ads. Stays cool for a very short period of time. When you applied different settings in got hotter not cooler and was very loud. The company were very hard to deal with when trying to send the Machines back. You have to send them back at your expense. From where I live in Far north Queensland it cost $80.10 to send back. I will never ever buy another product from the TV shop. I would advise others to do the same after the horrible treatment from their customer care team.
Fireght train. running through your room!!
ZERO stars...queried operator of noise levels was told as quiet as a ceiling fan!! Noisy as!!! belts out hot air doesn't cool a small room down even the ensuite heats up! Phoned with complaint told them its noisy they then offered me another $100 off... Still not good enough. Rang again telling them its faulty they will replace... NO I don't want another one and I'm not paying for this product... Repairs dept called me asked how I set it up and how do I use it I replied as per manual instructions but its noisy and hot.. Might be ok for winter season... I'm refusing to pay for faulty crap product.. GET STUFFED TV SHOP
did not get product ordered, performance not as advertised, only a fan, decided to return product and was dismayed when charged $250 for the articles, as the so called one free has to be returned as well.
Company has a deal with Aust Post, so article posted to us cost $84, but upon returning same product customers pay full price in essence the difference in price is $166. As a customer we paid the $250 + $84!
Please avoid TV shop!!!
Please don't bother
Ordered instachill wish I didn't did not do what it said at all. Plus I had to pay 200.00 to post back please please don't order . it looks great on TV then when I turnt it on what a dissapoiment
What a rip off!
My husband bought this product a a TV SHOP in TAMWORTH. We gave it several opportunities to prove itself, but it was basically just a very expensive fan; and not very effective. He took it back to the TV shop and they refused to refund him. He then phoned the company, who asked for proof of purchase. He provided proof of purchase but he never heard back from them. Poor product, highly disreputable company, don’t touch this product.
I was so excited to have my instachills arrive today, but dayum, how disappointing. It definitely doesn't cool, it's an over expensive fan. Looks great, fancy and all that crap but does nothing what the ad shows on tv, and stupid me, I bought 2. Will definitely be sending these back, what a waste of hype
Waste of money
The ad said that it would cool a room but it doesn't. You have to be in front of it to cool down so if there is someone else home then you have to have it on swing and then I start sweeting.
I gave it 2 stars because it's better than a fan but not worth the price.
Styley looking fan
When you put the freezing water in, it blasts cold air for awhile, but as it warms up so does the air coming out of the instachill. It's good for the start of summer, but in the midst of higher temperatures it falls flat. But it still is better than a standard fan
Bought large instachill off the tv shop when it finally came in bits put it back together horrid so sent it back asked for my t/ period money back NO they sent me another one I didn’t want.NOTHING like the tv add. Had sloped top had water filler not on bottom and it pulled out NO drain plug NO mossie derterant and NO air filter as stated on add the pads do NOT soak up water to cool very noisy when u take off water filler panel it all falls to bits takes ages to get it back together when next one arrived was in a little bit better cond ...but still in bits the tiny tape doesn’t hold Panals together packing not great NO orange water float carnt see through view to the water delevery drivers don’t like them Also sent me invoice that I don’t owe any money now want me to pay over 600 send me the bar code so I can send back this item as promised it doesn’t do as they say it does and my t/ period money this is false advertising how many others are sent back too the reviews are bad wish I had read them before I went through all this over 4 weeks of horrid delivery drivers and staff that do not listen on the phone o well I’ve learnt a lesson don’t buy the tv shop good luck to all please send the bar code and my money thank you for the stress not impressed very very unhappy cust also makes my small home hotter not colder shount have listened to sales person only one that has been nice so far this is not great for buss now when add comes on I turn it off dry panals

I live in a rental with no aircon. We had a 44 degree day so we put straight ice in the instachill. I wont lie it struggled in the large room but if you sat within a 5 metre radius you could feel the difference. For that time it did the job to make the temp tolerable in that area but its not a substitue for a split system or air conditioner. Its just a cooler overpriced fan. On the plus side its an air purifier too.

Instachill - Large
Total waste of money. Doesn't do anything it claims to do. Not worth over $700. Very misleading in the advertisements. Thank god I'm sending it back within the trial period.
Total waste of money
Seriously don't by this product the adds are so misleading it's a fan that's it. Nothing special at all an expensive fan. Even on the cool setting it does not cool down the room.
Purchased in January 2021.
Horrible product and horrible company.
I’d give it no stars but unfortunately you have to give one.
I was 5 days past my trial date and only forgot as I had issues with my pregnancy and was unable to call sooner. I offered to send it back and pay the shipping myself again as the product doesn’t work as well as promised, I’ve even put ice in it as suggested and it is still crap and I t only blows out from one side.
So now they expect me to have to pay them $500+ for a crappy product that doesn’t work properly when I don’t currently work and my husband is on a low wage. So I now have to wait until I’ve paid off this terrible, waste of money product before I can start saving again for a product that actually works!
Not happy at all. Steer clear!!!!

just another evaporative cooler
Hoped it would be an updated version of the older style evaporative coolers, but, it is just the same . A little quieter, did not seem to cooler when chilling button was on. Apparently it works better if you put ice into it which I was only told when I went to return the item.
