Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for my basement Nice looking, very quite, and with the temp control at the mid point my beverages are nice and cold! Have had this product for only a month, but very satisfied so far. Researched theses products in depth, and this unit stood out in quality and price. Please note: The cabinet where my refrigerator is installed has an open back wall. April 16, 2013

I am using this Danby 2.5 in my office...This was my early Father's Day gift....It is so quite and very cold for my waters and soft drink,,,Fits perfectly under my desk...I can't believe that something this size is so well made...Thank you Danby & Home Depot ...I love it May 24, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great little refrigerator for an office. I purchased this for my office. It will be paired with office furniture so I was looking for a refrigerator that would blend in. August 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does what it was designed to do I purchased this refrigerator to augment my kitchen refrigerator. It also acts as a pedestal for the Danby wine cooler. It currently holds 24 cans of soda, 24 long neck bottles of beer, one open bottle of wine, and 6 bottles of water. I have no bad things to say about it as it does what I purchased it to do and do it well. It really freed up space in my main refrigerator and if yo have space requirements, this may well be a solution to explore. It works for me and that is all I ask. December 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super little frig Bought this little frig to keep drinks cold in our garage. Free home delivery brought it to our front porch unscathed. Love the interior layout. Can put a 2 liter bottle on the door along with 8 cans. Other drinks on the interior shelves. Much better design than the interior of other small refrigerators. I can't comment on quality as we've only had this for 2 days now. The black version was on sale as a "special buy" for quite a bit less than the white version. Go figure. We bought black. The only negative is that the switch to control the temp is on the back of the frig. On the outside, not inside. Not a big deal but just sharing that piece of info. It chilled down quickly and will be a welcome addition this summer. We will be turning it off during the winter anyway so we don't burn out the motor and the garage is naturally cold then. Oh, the Energy Guide that came with it says it uses $33/year. If we turn it off for Nov-Apr then we're only looking at an extra $16/year on our electric bill. Totally worth it to free up frig space in the kitchen. June 3, 2014
