Summary: While the functionality of this product is very good, it is not vertically aligned as pictured so I was disappointed to find out it didn't fit the space as I thought it would. Otherwise, it works beautifully.

Summary: I got this 12 Bottle Wine Enthusiast Wine Refrigerator as a wedding present 1 year and 6 months ago. I was so excited. I placed it next to my computer workstation (so it is near someplace where I sit a lot) in the corner of a room with hardwood floors in my small townhome/condo and plugged it in - it was quiet (not silent), but certainly not loud and annoying. It emitted the sound of a constant fan (more of a whoosh/whirring than a vibration or rattle).
Summary: Its difficult to have the set temperatures maintained. I find I have to make adjustments to the temperature settings almost every time I go to the wine chiller. There is of course the matter of how far apart the two temperatures can be set. I was expecting this from the reviews but it would be nice if one could get a 10-12 degrees difference.
Summary: This thing is bigger than you might think--being just a 12 bottle unit. It is also heavy, so moving it around isn't easy. It is well packed but that makes the box bulky--hard to handle by yourself. My unit started working fine, then went through a week of throwing display fits--lighting up all elements. Had to guess at temperature settings. It also would periodically BEEP for no good reason, sometimes sounding like the roadrunner.
Summary: We just purchased this unit. It is quiet and cools fine. There are 2 flaws with the storage. We used to have a Cuisinart, (which broke down twice in 3 years, so we decided to try another brand), which had a small area to stand an opened bottle in front of the bottles laid down in the racks,which was a nice feature. This unit not only does not have that space, it is not tall enough to be able to take the racks out and stand any bottles in it.
