Works great! Keeps beer, soda, wine, and even kids juice boxes cold without cluttering up the refrigerator.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Carla Poor product. Worse customer service
This refrigerator has never worked properly. The door doesn't seal, and it doesn't hold temperature. I paid nearly $1,000 for this in a custom kitchen and every person who sees my house knows how much I hate it.
Further, I have called customer service no less than 4 times and every time, someone says they will call me back. And NEVER has anyone followed up. To add insult to injury, at one point, I was advised by a customer service agent to "get a hair dryer and blow on the seal of the refrigerator." Are you kidding me?
I'll be blogging on every site to warn consumers about this product and the company. Don't buy anything from Danby.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mrsmoe Died at 4 years old!
So, I am not sure I would recommend this center....after 4 years exactly, this over heated and the temp inside went up to 80 degrees. Thank god we were home to pull out the plug. About a week ago, we noticed that the sound was getting loud, however this center was never really quiet. Need to look for a new one :(

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DaveZChicago Finally, a beverage center the cools and works well!
This replaces a dual fridge model that had a side-by-side design, looked really nice but you lost a lot of space by having separate compartments. LOOK FOR FROST FREE DESIGNS. We've gotten spoiled by big fridges because they're almost all frost free, a lot of these beverage centers and wine coolers aren't which means maintenance to keep them cooling. I've only had this for a few days but it cooled right down. I set it for 39 (the minimum) and it seems to only make it to 40 but it holds steady there. I haven't heard any noises so not sure what the other reviewers were commenting on.
I will tell you that this looks better in person than on line, the blue lighting is really nice at night... makes your beverages actually look cold. I used the included wine rack to store 11 bottles on the 2nd to the bottom shelf, and on the bottom stored 9 more. Perfectly happy with this. I removed one shelf and the rest I use to store juices, larger bottles of wine and water bottles.
I was iffy about this purchase and really went back and forth -- none of the units out there seems to be 5 stars unless they're in the $2000 range. Frankly I think even $1000 is kind of ridiculous considering you can get a pretty nice full sized fridge outfitted with fancy options for that price -- but in the end, it's great to have the large additional space for cooling in my kitchen.
My only comment was that the locking latch was bent which looked like it happened before it was boxed at the factor (like someone forgot to shut and lock the door before it left it's mothership). I was able to bend it back with my hands and it works well.
Very happy with this, would by again -- looks sleek, works quietly, exactly meets my needs.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Julie First one was a dud....the second one works great so far
The first beverage fridge was defective, which is why I gave only 1 star for quality. From the moment we plugged it in, it didn't get below 73 degrees! It's not even supposed to go that high, so it was definitely defective. The return process started out easy enough and customer service was very helpful. Unfortunately, with a computer glitch and having to speak with a new customer service rep. each of the many times that I called with more and more errors on their end, it ended up being a nightmare for me! In the end, the new fridge that was delivered worked as promised (so far) and we are enjoying it. It is very attractive in our newly remodeled kitchen. I am sure that if the computer system hadn't had a glitch, the return and replacement process would have gone beautifully. Everyone in Customer Service was very friendly and willing to help. It's too early for me to say whether the fridge will be energy efficient or last, which is why I gave each 4 stars for now. Several people comment in their reviews about the level of noise the fridge makes. Neither my husband nor I feel that it is loud.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by racer so far so good
it was easy to install. although the frig has pull out shelves, they aren't on rollers. this would be an excellent fridge if they come up with a way for the shelves to roll in and out easily once the shelves are loaded with drinks.

We purchased this refrigerator for our Bar and absolutely love it. Holds 12 oz cans perfectly with the shelf configuration. It looks awesome. Love the lighting inside. Great Value for the price.
