Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ChrisW Whynter 21 bottle wine cooler
I purchased this item with expidited delivery and was received as anticipated. I have had this cooler for only a couple of days and seems to function quite well. Although it is advertised as a 21 bottle cooler it ships with only a total of 6 shelves holding 3 bottles per shelf. This means it will hold 18 bottles on shelves with 3 bottles to remain setting on the bottom of the cabinet. There is still 1 available slot for a shelf at the bottom so I thought it was missing a shelf. I contacted Whynter customer service by email and was told that I was mistaken, that it was identified by the specifications that it included a total of 6 shelves. I am still a bit dismayed that a product would be built and sold with an omission. It seems that ALL Whynter coolers will have this issue. So when you are looking for a cooler to hold a certain quantity of bottles check on how many bottles each rack holds and how many racks are actually included. If this machine was a standard compressor model it would be totally unacceptable to have bottles just setting on the bottom of the cabinet. Because I destroyed the box it was shipped in, I cannot return for a different model or manufacturer cooler. Now I am hoping for the best with this cooler after finding the initial omission are there others?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Eddard Very stylish and does a real decent job.
This wine cooler looks very sleek. Not overly modern, it fits well into a contemporary setting. It's great for storing your wines long term and can cool to about 46 degrees which is just about the right chill for whites. As with these silent thermoelectric coolers, you get virtually no vibration but it is dependent on your ambient room temperature to reach your desired temperature, so don't put it in a hot garage. It's a freestanding type that needs ventilation space around the rear of the unit. I would recommend it even though it's pricey it's one of the nicest looking dual zones around.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GoChiefs Good Quality!
Purchased this wine cooler because we needed one that was relatively narrow so it wouldnt' crowd our kitchen doorway. Hardley any assembly required, just had to put the handles on. Controls are super simple and the cooler is very quiet! The two temperature zones combined with the UV blocking glass make this great for novice or advanced wine collectors.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Griswaldo Fanstastic so far
This is perfect so far. It looks really nice, possible the nicest freestanding unit available. It holds the 21 bottles but are a tight fit. If you need more room, just adjust number of shelves as needed. Spiffy touch screen control and the dual zone makes it complete. loving it right now.
