Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So far so good As everyone else has said, this is a nice unit. It runs very quietly and passed my break-in test. It comes double-boxed with thick cardboard padding. Mine arrived without a single dent or scratch. Temp setting works well. My only gripe is that the latch for the lid could be better. Definitely looking forward to taking this camping this year.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cools down quickly, with little noise. Draws 4.0 amps DC. I will use the frig in DC mode, where a quiet little fan comes on, but only when the compressor is running. It's quieter than my laptop. The frig uses 4.0 amps (at 13 volts DC), which is similar to my laptop. On 85-90 F summer afternoons, the compressor is running about 1/4th of the time. When it shuts off, the current draw drops to zero. You'll have no trouble sleeping next to it, because it's so quiet. On its inaugural cool-down, it got down to the 30s F in one hour! I was impressed. If I shut the frig down overnight, it only warms up to 49 F inside, compared to a 60 F ambient. So the insulation is excellent. I will use this full time in a travel trailer. I can't suggest any needed improvements. I just hope it runs for years and years. August 8, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fast cooling unpluged unit at 6 am 38 deg still at 50 at 6 pm in back of truck at end of june this year so far so good June 26, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is Better than Expected I purchased the 65 Qt. several years ago for my boat and obviously am quite satisfied. I purchased the 45 Qt. for the smaller size, compactness and lighter weight when full. I use it to keep food and beverages at 40 deg. F while driving to my off-grid cabin in Northern Wisconsin (6.5 Hr. trip). On my first trip I was wondering how it would drain the 7, 100 amp batteries I use for electricity at the cabin. I didn't see the sun for three days because it rained and the solar panels were not working in the rain. With the quiet of the north woods I was able to hear the fridge start about every 45 minutes (When the Temp rose to 43 deg. F), cool down to 38 deg. in 10 mins. and shut down. I was more than pleased with its operation. These Whynter products with true compressor cooling systems are well worth the investment over coolers with ice or those cheaper 12 vdc that cool relative to ambient heat. I then invested in the covers for the two refrigerators (these are not sold by Home Depot). The refrigerators come with two cables, a 12vdc and a 120vac. There are separate plugs on the unit to use depending on your power source. The memory chips retain what your temp. settings were when you turn the units off. These Whynter products are fantastic!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great: Well insulated, pulls about 4.5A (in 12V) and runs 50% of the time for 45 Deg (by room temp) The fridge is sturdy and does what you have payed for. Weak point: The handles are plastic and you need to watch out or they break. The trays are nice. Fridge memorizes temp. setting when disconnected and returns back to it when plugged in.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing unit that uses far less electricity than other higher priced ones. Good service, fast shipping. Very efficient and maintains the pre set temperature very well. Great for remote/cabin use or during power outages. September 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Keeps contents frozen Works excellent. It keeps items frozen as advertised. For use in my car I would like the option of a smaller unit. January 15, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It woeks properly I will know more after this next trip with my boat?? May 14, 2011
