Excerpt: I purchased this little countertop wine cooler for my natural hair salon. I absolutely love because it is the perfect size and it fits perfect on top of my Yosmite buffet that I also purchased at Staples.com. It cools beverages very quickly and looks very chic and business like. Much better than the small refrigerator , freezer that I use to use. It runs very quietly and you wont even realize it is in the room.
Summary: Straight out of the box. Brand new. Doesn't work at all. Contacted Danby. They were unwilling to honor the warranty because I had purchased it at a charity auction rather than from a dealer. What a poor excuse for not replacing a defective product.
Summary: It just stopped working. Contacted Danby and they said we need to get it serviced. No idea if we'll have to pay money or if it'll be covered by the warranty yet but it's quite a hassle (having to TAKE a $100 refrigerator to a service depot and possibly pay for it) for something that I would think should last longer than 2 years.
Summary: I wanted a small wine refrigerator that had a compressor and not thermoelectric. this Danby seemed to fit the bill. I have had the cooler for about 6 weeks and it is working fine, no complaints. Does a good job chilling wine at the temperature chosen and is not noisy at all. So far i am pleased with the purchase.
Summary: All black exterior looks great. Quiet. Maintains a stable temperature (our last wine fridge did not). Have only had it for a short time but has met our expectations on looks and performance so far.
