    Noob here, been lurking for a couple weeks. I saw the Lowes near me has this on clearance, is it any good? I saw that WallyMart and Home Depot has the Gen1 (I think) for $175.00. From what I've gathered, the Gen 1 would be the better choice.

    I think Richie is right - I just found your model on Lowes site - vent is on upper left side of unit.

    Sorry I didn't take a pic from the top, I was in a rush. I thought maybe the rounded corner controller on the front would have been enough to decipher it from a Gen 1?

    It is on the left side, not the top.  Gen 2.

    I didn't.l buy it. I wanted to make sure it was a Gen 2....so I could avoid it.

    Glad you could avoid a potentially bad situation with a new purchase.

    Just saw this one in store at WalMart. Looks similar to the one I posted from Lowes, sans the logo on the door. It is $188.00.
