Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Projectgirl Quality is great!
I chose this product because I was putting it upstairs in a cabinet and i did not want a freezer (which always seems to have to be defrosted and gets water everywhere) and because of the stainless finish.
I am very pleased with the quality and looks of this refrigerator. I think it will be very durable and will accomodate my needs for years to come.! And it looks good too!
It does run a bit loud, but that is because it is an under cabinet refrigerator and needs to run an exhaust fan as well. It does not bother me at all. I actually have a much more expensive U-line product that is much louder than this one, so i am happy with it.

I live in South Florida an I bought this unit for my outdoor kitchen. It is a nice unit and appears well made but I have two major problems with it. It runs continuously and is very noisy. It is actually louder than my whisper flow pool pump! It is very distracting when you are trying to enjoy a quiet evening. The other issue is that the exterior case sweats and has condensation on the top and sides. I complained to the manufacturer and they claimed that it was normal in a high humidity environment. If you don't mind a constant noise and you live in somewhere there is no humidity it will make a nice unit for you. I would not buy it again and suggest that you try something else if you live in the south and aren't deaf.

Got real tired of buying a small refrigerator every couple of years. This one seems to maintain the minimum 32-40F "food industry recommended" refrigerator temperature for perishable food.
A test with a thermocouple and a logging multimeter showed the empty refrigerator cycling on at 43F and off at 31F, but with food inside taking up room the temperature excursion is smaller, within the needed range I hope.
Nice feature is the fan at the top inside that keeps running at all times so the temperature differential between top and bottom is minimized. There is an automatic compact fluorescent light inside that comes on when you open the door.
It is somewhat noisy when the compressor is running because not only the compressor but also an internal fan near the compressor runs to cool the compressor etc.
I have not seen the compressor start and stop from being overloaded, so it looks like they have a big enough compressor installed. The cheap ones skimp here.
Frost-free feature works fine so far.
Insulation is too thin, because sides get cold to the touch. This is, to me, not a huge problem.
I am using it in a benign indoor kitchen environment, not outdoors. With any luck it will last me 10 years.
It is quite pretty being stainless steel and all.
