Daikin FTKF50TV16U Product Overview
Reviewing an air conditioner is a tricky job as explaining what you have experience in words is sometimes tough. But what I am trying to present here is my opinion according to price to performance ratio along with some of the key features available.
This is a 5 Star inverter air conditioner series from Daikin. There are 1-ton, 1.5 ton and 1.8-ton models available in this series but we will be checking out 1.5-ton model today. The indoor unit is simple looking and comes in plain white colour. FTKF series lacks the display provided on the indoor unit in JTKJ series. There is a big green backlit display on the remote instead.
