Summary: 16 months after purchase, the temperature control malfunctioned and it froze over 60 bottles of wine. Corks came out, wine poured everywhere and Danby doesn't care because the unit made it past the 12 month warranty. Don't buy this piece of @#$%^&*.
Summary: After a few months, the temperature control stopped working, and all our wine froze, pushing out the corks - what a mess to clean up. Danby sent out a repairman to take a look, and he confirmed the temperature control sensor was bad and he ordered the part.
Summary: This unit looks nice and the fit and finish are acceptable. And it worked fine for about a year and a half. Now it will not even cool to room temperature. Of course, the warranty has expired and Danby customer service is non-existent.
Summary: The first Danby wine cooler I received was damaged when it arrived. Had to wait for a replacement cooler. The digital temp was never within 10 degrees of the thermometers I put inside the unit. The top portion was adequate for red wine but the lower few shelves were much colder.
Summary: Four months after purchase (not through amazon.com) the danby wine cellar temperature dropped below freezing causing all my red and white wines bottles' corks to pop. Danby paid for one in home warranty repair. Failed a second time (caught early with extra temp gage).
Summary: We needed more wine storage so, naturally we went to Amazon to check out our options. We had a smaller Danby wine cooler so we decided to go with a bigger Danby. It is a good looking unit and is performing beautifully right out of the box.
Unit acceptable, but Danby Customer Service not so much

Summary: We purchased this unit from Amazon.com on June 23rd. Delivery went well, but when we unpacked the unit we discovered we were missing one of the "feet" that help balance the unit. The unit had both a left and right hinge (to allow door reversal) and each hinge had a foot that screwed into it.
Summary: I purchased this wine cellar about a month ago as a replacement for several smaller units. So far the unit has been fantastic! I'm not sure where the claims are coming that it is noisy because this unit seems nearly silent.
Summary: After looking at units ranging from $3000 to $700, I decided to get this one as an entry level wine cooler for my wine stock at home. The unit arrived in perfect condition and after removing the extra door hinge on the front (which you can miss if you don't read the instructions) it works great.
Summary: For 5 months this has been an adequate, if not somewhat loud wine fridge. This week it has been very loud and today I noticed that, although the temp is set at 56, my wine had frozen and several bottles (of very nice wine) had exploded.
