Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by STLTom One working, one died...
We bought two of these to sit side by side white/red in 2005. In 2010, one of them died - which seems pretty consistent with several other reviews here. Other one is still going strong - we're going to buy another one because they match but if starting over would heed the cautions of other reviewers and myself. Spend a little more and find something with better reviews.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cowgirlduck Defective
Refrigerator did not work out of the box which was unfortunate since I ended up spending the time to install it, wait for it to cool down, realize it wasn't going to after two days, then had to contact customer service, make arrangements for it to be returned, re-package it (tons of fun), and now try to find one that does fit in the space and works. . . . disappointed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cagy Performance is poor for a $400 typical cost investment. Would not buy again !!!!
I have two units that now also don't work having the same issues that the other reviews mention with respect to temperature controls. Unit size, features & appearance look very good but that is no indication of the actual performance of the cooler.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DRDU Magic Chef that lasted 3 years only
It seems like most Magic Chefs last 3-4 years. Pretty cheap quality for a $400 wine cooler. Digital temp started showing error readings and the temp showed 72 degrees. Looks like Magic Chef made another Lemon appliance.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BocaB Worked Fine for 4 Yrs; Poor Use Life
This item worked fine for 4 yrs. Then it stopped dead. 4 yrs for a refrigerator? Kitchen refrigerators that are opened constantly are rated at 12-15 yrs. A wine cooler is not opened 20x a day. Find a better unit.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by nancy Didn't work when I got it.
I had one for five years and it worked nicely then it just stopped getting cold inside. I figured it was old so I purchased a new one and it didn't get cold either. I think I'll move on to another product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Artisen Poor quality
Purchased 2 years ago. For the past 6months the temperature control has gone out and goes from 50's to completely shut off at a temperature of 69 degrees. Poor quality. Looks good but useless.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 1martinilover this product has a great sleek look about it.
The only draw back I see is the temperature controal system. It seems to run a little warmer than I would have expected.
