Summary: Purchased on new, after 8 months this fridge sounds like a jet plane. so noisy i can't sleep, this went on for 4 more months, called danby and they said sorry, can't help you. no customer service, they stonewall you. looked into blogs, found others having same problem, also stonewalled. don't buy one, you'll be sorry.
Summary: All the reviews I have read have been from recent purchasers. These units work great at the beginning then the circulation fan starts to get noisy. This would be fine as Danby will stand behind their stuff except the fan replacements are not available! In my case they took a perfectly working but noisy six month old fringe to the dump. If Danby can get their parts problem solved, this would be a perfect small fridge.
Summary: Perfect apartment size refrigerator. It came with one shelf missing, but after a couple of tries, customer service provided the missing shelf. Since its a shorter refrig, i Love the freezer on the bottom.
Summary: When I read the reviews people mentioned that it was quiet. after buying I realized it wasnt quiet at all. In fact I had to move it from the kitchen which was close to my living room to the closet where my washer and dryer was. so I could close the door. other than that, I found everything else as I had wanted. I would have loved it if it had been quieter. Now I am wondering if AJ Madison (where I bought it) sold me a used one.
Summary: Too bad it does not have any shelf on freezer door. Also, it would be better if the place for soda or beer cans was not included and replaced with compartments for butter/cheese, etc. It's ridiculous to think that everyone drinks beer and soda.
Summary: Being an empty nester, I was looking to downsize on the cubic space. I have an eat-in kitchen, and with this size, it gave me more floor space. Ample inside, don't have to bend down, everything is at eye level, (except for the ice cubes), I am happy with the freezer on the bottom. I recieved this a week before Easter, and had no problem with leftovers. Runs quiet.
Summary: I've had it since for just less than a year and I like it so far. I like the space available for a small unit. The bottom freezer works best for this application (backup refrigerator). My only suggestion to Danby would be to make the freezer bin slide out nicely. It's a bit clunky the way it is designed now. A sliding feature for this area would be great as it is on the bottom.
Summary: This is a great fridge. It fits well into a studio apartment nd functions perfectly and silently. I really like that the freezer is on the bottom. The top compartment is much roomier than I expected particularly the door shelf that does actually hold a tall bottle of wine or soda. The delivery from AJ Madison was perfect. The guys were helpful and well mannered and came on time. They had the fridge in place and the old one out the door in under a half hour.
