Summary: This wine cooler works great. It's been plugged in over a year and not a problem. Keeps the wines nice and cool and the digital temperature gauge on the front is easy to set. Even has a nice light inside.
We liked it and it was relatively quiet overall even though ...

Summary: I owned a previous wine refrigerator from wine enthusiast and we had it for many years. It was smaller than this model. We liked it and it was relatively quiet overall even though towards the end it seemed to be hardly cooling the wine at all. Thus we figured it would be a safe bet to get a new wine enthusiast fridge. It was not too tall which meant that it fit nicely on our shelf in the kitchen.
Summary: This wine cooler is our second of the Wine Enthusiast brand. The first one lasted about 8 years before it just died and for the price I thought that was a fair useful life in these days. We have ordered many items from Wine Enthusiast and they were all of the highest quality and serviceability. When I received the box, I unpacked it, plugged it in, set the temp on the digital display, and voila!!! It worked. It is very quiet.
Summary: I would strongly advise anyone considering a wine refrigerator to stay away from this product in particular and Wine Enthusiast in general. I received a defective unit, which happens from time-to-time with electronics. All the seller has to do is issue a return and everything is fine. What doesn't, and shouldn't, happen is that customer service makes it incredibly difficult to return a defective product.
Summary: Well, half of mine lasted two years. One side suddenly had the temp go up and I could not lower it so it was rendered unusable. Thankfully, I didn't lose any wine as I noticed it right away but if I had lost any wine, let alone good wine, I would have been furious. Still not happy that one half died in the first six months. Now, after tow years the unit is completely dead.
It takes some maneuvering to make it work properly

Summary: The basics: At first when I set this up, I thought that this was not going to work at all. It took a little bit of fooling around with, but I think it's now useful enough to keep. Why I chose this product: After my older 8 bottle wine refrigerator stopped working properly, I needed a new one. So, I decided to upgrade to a larger sized 12 bottle wine fridge. Because I was going to place it on a countertop, I really wanted one that was 4 bottles wide by 3 bottles tall.
