York cooling king has higher consumption cause Compressor bigger... but dont like the quality... degrade very fast after 2yrs of use...
if not wrong Panasonic is the 2nd lowest power consumption for the compressor the first is LG if not mistaken... maybe this effect the cooling capacity as naturally compressor is smaller compare to the rest...
I think the Panasonic Inverter has power savings due to the way the Econavi and the air con is programmed.... Without a doubt, the power saving works. Just not cold enough for me.

Simply said, Pana cooling capacity is lower primarily due to cut cost, period.
Cooling quality is not solely depends on compressor, it also depends on the quality of the condenser, cooling coil, arrangement/density of the fin, with the latter component is much more important in cooling role than the compressor alone.
False. Panasonic non-inverter air con still very cool.

Which model u bought? i'm planning to buy panasonic inverter aircon also
What's your priority? Power consumption or cooling?
If you are more concerned about power savings than cooling, then buy Panasonic great choice.
If you are more concerned about cooling than power savings, then buy the Daikin GA inverter.
But if you are concerned about power, use fan lah...

Sorry to say, Pana and Sharp were the struggling company at the moment, especially Pana, the group is too huge, they step into too many sectors. But ask yourself, which area/sector Pana is the no.1 now? Heater? We know Joven and Alpha. Washer? We know Electrolux. Display? You know Sony, Sharp, Samsung. Fridge? We know sharp, Toshiba, LG. I only can name Panasonic in my 1st mind for ceiling fan (although alot of complaint for their remote and Bayu series) and stand fan, what else? It present in all categories, but the performance is not outstanding, and the price is premium. Until now you already can guess why Pana group record a highest financial lost in year 2013 since the Matsushita group established. Pana can survive today is mainly due to the strong foundation built by 'National' brand during 1980'-2000' era in Asia region. Reliability basically buried together with the National brand already. My father was the one who strongly support this brand during that time, that's why my hometown now still consist a 30 years old National 1HP aircond, 33 years old National fridge, 35 years old National Cassette Radio, 20 years National heater, almost 40 years National rice cooker and all these items were still perform the daily job well (Except aircond rarely open).
I just bought Panasonic water heater, and a Rubine water heater at the same time. Without a doubt Panasonic is better quality and better constructed (need to remove cover to install). You can see the internals yourself.
And I also bought a Panasonic Inverter fridge last year. Power saving was evident as well.
I will definitely recommend Panasonic for non-inverter air conditioner, since they have R410a ones and not overly expensive. The National 1HP and Panasonic 1.5HP i have is super cold.
