Summary: The price was right but the delivery box was beat up. The unit arrived with three dings on the side. No phone numbers for the company that was purchased from. Overall experience was not great. Will not purchase something like this online again. For the 40.00 I saved, the aggravation was not worth it.
Summary: The beverage center is just that...a refrigerator that holds bottles and cans. Unfortunately, even at the lowest settings...the temp is still WAY too low for fine wines...I'm guessing it's around 42-45 degrees. It also vibrates like a refrigerator...not the best environment for wine. I'll probably use it for my whites and keep my finer reds elsewhere.
Summary: According to Haier Customer Service, this thing is only designed to "cool" to 45 degrees F. That is completely inadequate in my mind for a "beverage center." This fact is not in the user manual and it is not documented anywhere in the detailed specs here or at Haier's website. If I had known this fact, I would NOT have purchased this machine. As it is, I will probably donate it to a charity organization and buy a product that is designed for use in the real world...
Summary: I do not usually do this, but I thought I'd take some time out to warn all of you out there. DO NOT purchase this item through Amazon.com. They sent me a USED item that looked like it had been opened and tampered with before. There were screws falling off inside the refrigerator that didn't look like they were supposed to be falling off. The door hinge was bent up. The bottom was glued up like it had been repaired before.
Summary: I have antoher one of these i purchased locally and it works great. The problem is that the one I received from AMAZON had been traumatized in shipping and had some dents. It was clearly a returnable item, but when I went to return it the Amazon site said something like..."cannot return items with toxic liquids, contact manufacturer for returns"...I contacted Hair and they NEVER RESPONDED.
