The product comes virtually assembled already. It was quick and easy to start filling it up. I love the way it looks and the blur LED lights are super cool! The drawers are a bit stiff to slide in and out easily. It doesn't fit champagne very well. It was more narrow than I had expected and there is a bit of a hum but that has gone down since its been installed.

Great wine cooler while it lasted. We kept the filters cleaned, so I don't think it was our fault that suddenly we started hearing arcing coming from the board. Not good. It gave me no indication that it was having problems. I cleaned the filters on it quarterly. It was quiet and kept my wines chilled. However, almost exactly 1-1/2 years after I purchased it, we suddenly heard the arcing from the bottom board. It was quite noisy and unless we can find a new board, we will have to replace it. It was too much money to have only lasted this long.

Just like some of the other reviews, this unit lasted 13 months before it broke. It completely stopped functioning, and won't turn on any more. Since it is just 1 month over the year of purchase, there is nothing I can do now. Piece of junk.

Bought this unit and in under 6 months the lower zone stopped working. Contacted Whynter and got nothing but the run around. After 3 weeks of emails back and forth - their customer service department is very slow in responding to emails - I was told that I could ship it back at my expense of $220 and they would repair or replace or they would ship the parts needed and I could hire and pay someone of my choosing to replace the parts. I would never buy anything from this company again.

I ended buying two of these. The first one I bought had a failure in the upper zone. It was replaced by Home Depot immediately. The second one has had no problems. There are other wine coolers available but I think think this is a very good system for the price.

The temperature controls on this unit only worked for about one year. They now cycle on and off, so there basically is no control, but in all fairness it does cool. I recommend getting a separate thermometer. This unit is almost as noisy as a compressor model. The cycling is annoying.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ABCD123 This product has a great look and goes well with the stainless appliances in my kitchen.
The cooler came slightly damaged on the top back left corner, but since I destroyed the box getting it out, I had nothing to repack it in to return it. Previous posts indicated a problem with damage upon arrival, but since it was too big of a pain to take it back, I just kept it. I still like it despite the slight dent damage. I left it overnight (the directions say 2 hours) before plugging it in just to be safe. It cooled down to the settings very quickly after powering it up. It has a very nice look (I have it in my diningroom) and blends well with my stainless appliances. I would recommend it to others, and if you're picky about slight damage, don't destroy the box like I did if you want to return it.

This wine fridge worked great for the first 8 months we had it. Like other reviewers, it stopped working. The bottom section of the wine fridge started to read 49-50 degrees. We worked with the company's client service for weeks troubleshooting and tracking the temperature, making sure that it was not just the temperature display that was off. Finally we had to pay $100 plus to ship it back to the company to be fixed. After a few months we received the fridge back. It worked great again for another 6 months and then the same thing began happening, bottom section broken again. This product would be great if it worked longer than 6- 8 months. We also tried contacting local appliances stores to see if they could fix it, no one had heard of this company.
