Summary: This little wine chiller looked exactly like what we had been thinking about buying. It really is an attractive unit. Our problem is that when it arrived the door seams at the corners were no longer tight and you could see a large gap between each piece of board. Also the door is scewed. Another problem is it isn't cold. It usually runs around 54 and we have it set at it's lowest setting of 46.
Summary: I got this for myself and it does what it says. The thermoelectric cooling is very cheap to operate and is quiet. I did not notice the fan that one of the other reviews noted. It will hold 16 bottles without any trouble and is very nice to look at. The "bamboo" finish is nice but it is plastic not actual bamboo. I like this so much I got one for my son as a birthday gift.
Summary: I purchased the Haier HVTS16AMB 16-bottle cooler on clearance for $69.00. Very quiet operation, visually pleasing and maintains selected temp within a degree. My gripe about this unit is that it can accommodate wider style bottles only on the top and bottom shelves, and to fit 4 large bottles on either shelf requires that the bottled necks be alternated facing front and back.
Summary: It is not "bamboo", it is a cheap plastic which pretends to look like bamboo. Also, it is not a "cellar", but rather a cooler. You may set the thermostat to a certain temperature, but it would not be able to reach it. Thermoelectric technology can only provide a certain step down from the room temperature, which can never be more than 20F.
