Terrific So Far

Lucky Gal, ABT Electronics
29 November 2014
  • Excerpt: These small beverage refrigerators are surprisingly expensive, so we chose this one as it was mid-priced. Other than the "tacky" icons on the front, of soda bottles and cans (as if we need ideas for what to use it for), it's an attractive appliance. And by the way, it was the salesman who used the word "tacky," as he tried to up-sell us, but this was a great choice for us for storing beer and water.
  • Pros: Customizable Shelving, Easy Access, Holds Temperature Well, Quiet
  • Cons: Flimsy Shelves, Handle Design, Limited Shelving Options, Stupid Icons On Front

Perfect for keeping drinks cold.

  • Excerpt: This beverage fridge is perfect for beer and soda and that is exactly the purpose we use it for. This is a one zoned refrigerator, temperature ranges from 34-43 degrees...not useful for wine storage. However, if you want cold drinks this is perfect. Cheers!
  • Pros: Holds Temperature Well, Keeps Beverages Very Cold, Quiet
  • Cons: Light Does Not Stay On, Light Times Out

This is terrible, don't buy it.

Cooler guy, Amazon
3 December 2011
  • Summary: This unit is super noisy!!!! Also, the temperature adjust is very finnicky to adjust. If you're beverages are on the top shelf in front of the fan, they will freeze. If you turn unit warmer, then other drinks are luke warm. The shelves are a pain in the neck to adjust, and they are EXTREMELY FLIMSY. The bow under the weight of just a twelve pack. Overall, I am NOt satisfied with this unit. In fact, it is my second.

So far, very very good

Yuran22, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this fridge 10 mos ago and have been very pleased with it. It has maintained 38 deg without disruption for that entire time, keeping sodas, wine and beer cold. We have it integrated into a wet bar in our media room. It looks very nice surrounded by cherry cabinetry and granite counter top. Our unit does make noise, but does not disrupt movie/tv watching and we rarely even notice it.

Just terrible

Eric, Amazon
13 October 2011
  • Summary: First off the instructions for changing the door swing were not well written. The fridge has broken 3 times in 1 year. I'm on my 3rd control board. This is one of the worst products I have ever purchased. I did get the extended warranty, so I guess I'm hosed next year.
