Rated 4 out of 5Â by micj I would recommend this unit...but you get what you pay for.
Let's face it, this is not a high end wine cooler. You get what you pay for. However, it is a very good cooler for the price and works as described. It holds lots of bottles (50) and you can fit those wider pinot style bottles on some, but not all shelves, whereas other coolers don't handle them at all. The wire shelves do not smoothly "glide" out but they do "ok". There are 4 specific points I would like to address:
1) Bottle temp is rock solid: There are some reviews that complain about temperature fluctuation. I agree with the one review that states air temp fluctuation is not important, it's bottle temperature fluctuation. I totally agree with that and my bottle temperature (measured at various location using a thermometer pushed in through a corked bottle) is steady even though the air temperature fluctuates between 57 and 60F.
2) Unit is quite: I can hear the unit running when it cools but just barely. I have no problem with the noise (very soft fan blowing type noise) it produces and it's way quieter than the refrigerator it replaced.
3) There is no on/off switch. The only way to turn the unit off is to unplug it from the wall. Not good for an undercounted placement. You do not want to have to slide a fully loaded unit out from under a counter. But then again, if it's full of wine, you probably are not going to want to turn it off and warm up your wine...right?
4) Build quality: What can I say...it's made in China and it has that build quality. The front door is well made and looks nice, the rest of it has a cheap feel. Mine came with a bent door hinge which I had to straighten out to get the door to seat squarely on the front. The damage had to come during assembly as the box did not show any dropping damage. But the door does seal nicely and tightly.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by coolerman fair quality
we purchased two of them. one has been fine the other has been repaired multiple times. it gives and EEF errors. I have had 3 cooling fans installed and still it over heats. repair men can not fix it. recommendation was wait until it stops cooling all together and buy a new one.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Carti Fits perfectly
I purchased the wine cooler to install I my wet bar. It fit perfectly and it looks great. The motor is relatively quiet and it holds the temperature well. I am quite satisfied with my purchase. If I had more room, I would have purchased the beverage cooler by Vissani as well.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by chuck1238 Good cooler and reasonably priced.
Had another cooler, same brand for several years. When the first died a natural death, I naturally replaced it with its brother. It is a very reliable brand that never disappoints.
