According to the ratings on this site Armstrong is one of the more highly rates central AC systems. You can find the top ten rates AC units on this site here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/ac_ratings.html.
You can also find more ratings on Armstrong here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/air-conditioners/armstrong/reviews/. I would remind you that people tend to only rate something when they have a complaint rather than rave so take the negative reviews with a grain of salt. I think the way to approach it is look to see if the complaints are all about the same issue and ask your Armstrong certified HVAC tech about what you find.

"ARMSTRONG----------armstrongair.com-4*--------2*--------NA---- This is a brand from LENNOX INTERNATIONAL. The 4AC13 units are builder grade units but they are backed by a good warranty and have Microban coated drain pans to inhibit mold/bacteria growth. The 4SCU13LE model is a basic 13 seer unit with a scroll compressor for reliability and a very good warranty. It has a compressor blanket for quieter operation and onboard diagnostics for aid in troubleshooting. The 4SCU16LT models have swept wing fan blades for better sound control and a durable two speed scroll compressor. They have an efficiency of up to 16 seer but the warranty is not as good as many brands."
To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present.
