Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 66 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for my basement Nice looking, very quite, and with the temp control at the mid point my beverages are nice and cold! Have had this product for only a month, but very satisfied so far. Researched theses products in depth, and this unit stood out in quality and price. Please note: The cabinet where my refrigerator is installed has an open back wall. April 16, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ice Ice Cold Baby! I am using this Danby 2.5 in my office...This was my early Father's Day gift....It is so quite and very cold for my waters and soft drink,,,Fits perfectly under my desk...I can't believe that something this size is so well made...Thank you Danby & Home Depot ...I love it May 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exceptional performance for a small refrigerator! I did the research and found the Danby to be the best rated of all small refrigerators. There's good reason why! Most others are "coolers". They keep drinks a little below room temperature. This is a REFRIGERATOR! I turned it on the highest setting when I put it in my office and 1 day later it froze my sodas until one burst! Created a mess but convinced me that this little guy is more than capable of keeping my sodas ICE COLD! I now have it set slightly above "mid-way" and it's awesome! I downgraded the features since it does not have a freezer section but I didn't want a freezer anyway. Great value and great price! Plenty of storage and I like the can storage in the door!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Does what it was designed to do I purchased this refrigerator to augment my kitchen refrigerator. It also acts as a pedestal for the Danby wine cooler. It currently holds 24 cans of soda, 24 long neck bottles of beer, one open bottle of wine, and 6 bottles of water. I have no bad things to say about it as it does what I purchased it to do and do it well. It really freed up space in my main refrigerator and if yo have space requirements, this may well be a solution to explore. It works for me and that is all I ask. December 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Product! I bought this for use in my basement which leads out to my backyard. It is bigger than I thought and VERY quiet. I can put cans in the door storage and plenty of food for barbecuing inside. Nice looking as well. Well worth the money. May 15, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thumbs up Good quality, quiet and Energy Star rated. Good selection for a compact mini-refrigerator. April 12, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by it's a real money saver! solid packaging. let it sit upright before plugging in, for at least 1 day. plenty of storage. if you don't drink sodas the door compartments are set at a 45 degree angle and condiments slip in and stay, freeing up the 4 shelves for everything else. a lot of room and realllly quiet. i only buy the food i'm actually going to eat now, so i'm saving money at the store and losing weight. this is a good fridge. i don't miss the freezer. so far after a month, it's working as saver is the way to go.
