Decent mini fridge but the design is different from the picture.
This was a replacement for my office mini fridge that stopped working. I was happy to go from a plain, standard black mini fridge that was very loud, to this one. It's red, cute and MUCH quieter. There is some sound, but I've hardly noticed it after what I had before. I plugged the fridge in, it got to a good temperature and is cooling without issue.
Now for the bad parts:
1) It did arrive with some minor damage. I'd read many reviews of these Igloo fridges here and elsewhere, and arriving

damaged was a common complaint. On this one, it's a small paint chip with a dent on a back top corner, and a little dent on the side near the back. Not enough to return since it's small and towards the back, but worth noting.
2) The fridge I received does not look like the one in the picture. The "Igloo" name on the front, the handle and bottle opener are all pretty similar, but the design at the bottom is completely different. It is not two sets of three stripes, but one silver line that says "Retro" in the middle. It's not terrible, but I would have preferred the stripes as shown in the picture.
3) The front part of the handle is really difficult to slide onto the bottom part. I got it halfway on, but can't push it over the rest of the way. I'll have to see if someone else can do it.
Otherwise, I like the new fridge quite a bit, but it's disappointing to receive something different than expected.
