Summary: AVOID THIS COMPANY!! My unit arrived broken. Haier customer service was rude & obnoxious. They were completely unapologetic & seemed to go out of their way to be UNHELPFUL. When I finally bullied them into action, they wanted a full week to send out a service man who may or may not have been able to fix it. I spoke to both customer service and corporate, both were extremely rude and entirely useless. What's more, neither one had the decency to so much as apologize.
Summary: This wine cooler weighing 103 lbs. comes with very poor protective packing. Our original and one replacement order was delivered with a broken door on both occasions. I can't believe that Amazon would ship this product with only the original manufacturer's packing which is not designed for the rough handling of third party shipping. Amazon refused to send a second replacement after promising that they would do so.
Summary: I cannot comment on the quality of the product, because after two attempts, i was unable to get one delivered to me in good condition. The packaging is so poor that the product is almost guaranteed to be banged up by the time it gets to you. If you're prepared to spend much time and effort dealing with shipping problems and lugging around this 110lb box, and then repackaging it when you open it and find that the door is broken, then good luck and hopefully the product...
Summary: I bought two of these last fall from Circuit City for $100 less than the current going rate - too bad they don't carry this model any more. I love them! They hold a steady temp and will hold 42 bottles if you work narrower bottles around the pinot noir bottles (which tend to be much bigger than most wine bottles).
Summary: Overall, the wine cooler is noise free, the only time that you will hear noise is when the compresser kicks in, which is about once every 2-5 hours. Other then that, there is absolutely no noise. One drawback is that the shelves do not slide out. However, you can fit 42 bottles. I had this wine cooler for only a month and hopefully it would last for years. Time will tell. As of now I'm satisfied with this wine cooler and will recommend it.
Summary: The wine cellar is good. However, the way I got it was pretty bad. The cooler is bend in one side and the carton it came in it was all broken. The cooler was also full of dust everywhere. It seems as though you had it in your warehouse for a very long time. Perhaps you should review the merchandise before sending it out.
Summary: YOU MAY WANT TO READ THE REVIEWS ABOUT OTHER HAIER PRODUCTS BEFORE BUYING THIS ONE. Haier products get bad reviews for poor quality and difficulty getting replacement parts. Even on this wine cooler, 1 person reports a problem. Also, many of them start making noise after a month of running and have to be unplugged for a while. You may luck out buying this: 1. This one might be better made them other Haier products. 2. You might get a good one.
Summary: This unit has a reasonably large capacity and is priced well compared to others of this size. The construction is decent, but by no means would I consider it chef/gourmet quality. It's nice to look at and reasonably attractive, but does not boast some of the fancy stainless steel doors or outer shell as you can see. It has a bit more of a minimalist look, which may be what you're looking for if you'd like it to blend in a bit.
