Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Karla Great "Beverage Center" - very versatile!
Like that interior construction allows to store not just wine but beer, cans of soft drinks, bottles of water. Also love the french doors - don't take up much room when open and can open the side you want. Greato have a soft beep alarm when you don't close the door completely. So many great advantages I never even thought about wanting!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by whiner2 Probably should avoid this item
I bought one of these for my wife for Christmas 2014. From the time we brought it home it was very noisy, but I intended to eventually build it into an island, so we put up with the noise. About 3 weeks ago, we wife heard the unit beeping; when she went to check on it, one side of the unit was at 27 degrees. Needless to say, it ruined about 15 bottles of wine. It could not be adjusted to maintain the set temperature. I called Whynter to see how I could get it fixed (out of warranty, of course). They suggested I ship it back to them for repairs. Since shipping both ways (not to mention cost of the repair) would probably be close to what I paid for the unit, I now have a combination Wine Refrigerator/freezer. If you have any expectations of buying an appliance with a reasonable life, I would urge you not to buy this wine refrigerator.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by newclawfoottubowner Love it!
I looked at A LOT of wine refrigerators online and read all the reviews from others before deciding on this model. I love it! The look is so great and I couldn't be happier. We purchased two to place at the end of our kitchen island under the granite counter. It is a little noisy when the compressor is running but nothing to dissuade my recommendation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ernie Works well, Quiet, and Spacious...
Installed the Elite Dual Zone in an island. It keeps the bottles at temp and looks nice as well. We aren't connoisseurs so our needs are strictly for entertaining and not long term wine storage. The unit is very quiet but I am certain that you would have more noise if the unit is not installed in a cabinet. The feature that we like is the open door alarm. This has sounded several times as guest do not always shut the door completely. I had looked at several wine fridges and this one was a better value than most. We have owned three other fridges in different homes over the years. I feel that this is the best one that we have owned.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Don Great cooler but very noisy
All in all this cooler if very good and very attractive to look at. Here is a quick summary:
Holds temperature very well
Functions as advertised
Very easy to load and get access to wine
It will easily hold 40 bottles of various sizes of wine
When running the unit it extremely noisy, louder than our refrigerator
It cycles on and off a lot, maybe to get the temperature but maybe they should add more insulation.
Key pad for setting the temperature is hard to use.

Great wine refrigerator, but was delivered without handle screws and front piece was bent.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jimrahm Wine cooler
Sharp looking, heavy duty, solid construction, nice roll out shelves, space for odd size bottles, elegant interior lighting, easy dual zone temperature adjustment and best of all the price was right for a cooler this nice. I've seen similar units costing $1500 dollars and more. It is a little noisy when the compressor kicks in but no problem for me as it's installed in my garage. It's not energy star rated but can't imagine it uses too much electricity.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by InfiniteJ We love it
First time we've readily agreed on something in a long time. This is a winner. I woudn't say it's the most feature packed or extravagant unit but it fits perfectly with our expectations on price and value. It definitely has that sturdy feel on all the trimmings and the unit cools nicely in both zones. I especially like the fact that the there is an extra large top area on one side for bigger sized bottles. I don't mind recommending this even it's only after 8 months of use.
