Bought this 7 months ago at depot. Led light went out in first month then the whole thing stopped working all together after 7 months. Apparently I'm not the only one....read other people's reviews.
Fluctuations in temperature since new.
Spend a little more and get something else.
Home Depot will not warranty or replace and only 7 months old.

This is a bit long, but bare with me. We bought the model before this (Magic Chef) in 2007, along with the matching wine cooler. The wine cooler has worked perfectly since 2007. The beverage center did not. Like others it would not get below 50 degs. We dealt with it until it finally died Feb 2014. I looked for another one like it to match the existing wine cooler we have, but the model was no longer available. Well, I think it is, but it is called the Vissani now. The difference is in the door handle. I read and reread all the reviews for this over and over and was hoping that I could buy another and not have the problems everyone else is. I was thinking how can Magic Chef not correct these issues. We have another small refrigerator by Magic Chef and it has worked like a champ. I took the leap of faith and purchased the Vissani again, but this time with the extended warranty (I was worried). After brining it home, I left it stand up right for 24 hours before plugging it in. In hopes of not needing to buy another wine cooler (so they would match), I swapped out the doors from my one that crapped out a few months ago with the door on the Vissani I just bought. It was a perfect fit (they are both the same less the door handle anyway). I plugged it in and waited and waited and the thing would not cool below 50 degs. Forty-eight hours later I was completely frustrated. I was on the Internet and came across a blog/review and the guy was telling the other guy to pull the back off and check a couple wires to see if they were cool or hot to touch. One was supposed to be hot the other cool. So I figured what the heck, I went to unscrew the back panel and I could hardly touch the back panel, it was so hot. Got the cover off and the inside was extremely hot. I noticed the fan was not moving, so I stuck my finger in there and tried to give it a nudge. No luck. Would not turn. I got to looking and saw it was hung up on the coils. I unplugged the unit and then proceeded to bend the coils slightly away (by pushing them in opposite direction of the fan) until the fan would move smoothly with the touch of my finger. I plugged it back in and the fan immediately started spinning. I adjusted the thermostat down to 38 degs and I waited. I came back a couple hours later and low and behold the temperature in the refrigerator was in the low 40's. Another hour later and it was at 39 degs. It made it to 38 degs and has operated like the manual says it should. Cools to set temperature, shuts off until the temperature rises 3 degs and then it turns back on and cools back down to 38. It has been going strong now for a couple months. I am skeptical and hope that it keeps going strong. I probably voided the warranty by opening the back up, but that's okay my beer is the perfect temperature. I do the happy dance every time I walk by it. I am hesitant to rate the Quality and Value until I know this unit is going to keep going. The same holds true as to whether I would recommend this product. I've crossed my fingers and have checked yes.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HotFridge MCBC58DST is junk. Don't even know who to blame.
I bought this model fridge and the name on it is Magic Chef. It was put in a den and I had cabinets built to fit around it. It never cooled properly and we eventually stopped using it. Now it has stopped working altogether. I contact Home Depot help desk and they said to call for a rpeir but the Help Desk would not provide a phone number or contact. The model number for that fridge now is sold under the name Vasanni. I hate to repair junk. I hate to replace junk with the same junk. But I'm stuck because of the expensive cabnetry. Be warned.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rbnsxm Perfect fit
Was just the right size for my bar area, fairly standard, but hard to find something nicely appointed as this in this size. Others were more along the lines of college dorm looks. Had to switch from left hand to right hand opening. Fairly easily done but instructions weren't 100% perfect - easy to figure out though. Only criticism on the inside is that the options for shelving height don't allow for a typical bottle water container to stand up without losing a shelf. Again no big deal, lay the bottles down and stack them like firewood. Works. Excellent cooling, very fast getting down to the desired temperature. Quiet running.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joelle Great Purchase!!
We purchased the display since it was going to be a garage refrigerator and it's awesome! It's quite, regulates itself in one day and stays at 37 degrees and looks great. It sells in store for $399, it was on sale for $368 and we asked if they could discount the item since it was a display and the box had been opened and we bought it for $280.

This product ices up on the internal back wall. After a little over a year it just stopped working. I was told it was the condenser and was given a number to call where I was informed it would cost more to fix it than it would cost to purchase a new one. Home depot was no help what so ever and neither was Vassani. Buy something else.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by OCDShopper DO NOT BUY!!! JUNK!
Bought this fridge, had it for just over one year, lightly used. After a couple months the temperature would not even come close to what we set it at, 20 degrees warmer or so, then we unplugged it to try to reset it hopefully and then it wouldn't get any colder than room temperature at all. The final unplugging happened just after the one year mark, so it was not covered on warranty. Now to fix it would cost more than buying a brand new replacement. It looks really good but if I am going to buy a $400 fridge again I will make sure the manufacturer has a better reputation or is willing to stand behind their product for more than a year. Please don't waste your money.
