Summary: This is a great little fridge. We bought it for our son's dorm room at school and it performs that function very well. For a small fridge, it's well laid out, works efficiently (keeps the drinks pretty cold), spacious (fits a surprising amount of drinks). I would recommend it. However, the packaging it arrived in was flimsy, minimal and frankly inadequate. Make sure you check the fridge exterior thoroughly when you receive it.
Summary: Never had a chance to use the unit. It was a great deal through Warehousedeals but UPS drive comes in with it and I look at him and he looks at me and expected me to sign for the unit. Box was almost black from dirt, unit was not secure inside at all and, box was open at top with some make shift re-tape thrown in. Back of unit where heat grill is was ripped of it's back. Not to mention the gigantic dent on both sides and rear.
Summary: I ordered this fridge from amazon. It arrived in a perfectly undamaged box. However when I opened it it looked like it was a refurbished unit. There were scratches on one side of it and a sizable dent in the other. The rather large radiator assembly on the back also was falling off because the screws holding it on were stripped. Amazon is taking care of the problem and shipping me a new unit at no charge, and having UPS pick up the old one.
Summary: Purchased this because an older one had a freezer compartment that always got frosted and needed defrosting every couple of weeks. This little beauty is frost free and has more space because of the lack of the freezer unit. Overall a nice efficient little no frost refrigerator. The shipping was outstanding. It was well packaged and arrived very fast.
Summary: Temperature control really stinks- the slightest adjustment moves the temperature from the high 40's to the low 20's. Even in the low 20's it keeps running trying to go lower. No I do not have it on Max cold.
Summary: I just installed this refrigerator in my office, and it is very quiet... in fact can't even hear it. My office neighbor's AC is way louder. I paid the extra for an "all refrigerator" so that I don't need to be concerned about defrosting every 3 months. It fits perfectly where I pictured it in the corner of my small office space, and I hope lives up to what the reviews say about keeping things refrigerator cold as opposed to cooler only cold.
Summary: I've used this fridge for nearly a month and it works great. Beverages are ice cold and there's no frost; exactly what I wanted. I have to give Sanyo a "ding" for the poor packaging - they placed styrofoam only on the four corners (top and bottom) rather than all the way down the length of all edges, and nothing on the flat sides. Result?
Summary: I have a small 'executive suite' style office. The office is used to meet with clients (all real work is done at home). It's always nice to offer the client a cold bottled water or coke. This refrigerator fills the bill perfectly. It fits under my desk and is there when I need it. Keeping it stocked with stuff is my biggest chore!
