So far so good.

Summary: Does what it was built to do. Keeps wine at cellar temperature. Have had it just under a year, and it is working fine. These things tend to have about a 2 year life cycle... Hoping that this one beats that. We will see. Only complaint is the the Wine Enthusiast metal "label" on the front was poorly attached... Although a. It of super glue fixed that problem right up.
Summary: this compact wine fridge was OK. It is a great size and was very quiet, until the internal fan started acting up and making a loud buzzing noise. I had to open it up and adjust it... the only truly irritating thing is that is only (easily) hold STANDARD size/shape bottles of wine, no sparkling bottles, no long necked bottles either. so it was a challenge to use it fully. still-- for the price. not bad.
Summary: I was so excited about my wine fridge, but it was a total let down. It got it, and it only fit 8 bottles, not 12. It says that it is quiet, but it isn't at all. Lastly, it broke within a year of buying it. Aren't things like this supposed to continually run without the motor breaking? Don't buy this. Spend a little bit of extra money and get a better one.
Summary: This is my first wine refrigerator and I like it because it is small and fits nicely on my counter top. Without removing a shelf it does only fit regular bottles of wine and it's not as quiet as I thought it would be, however, it's not super loud either. All in all, I'm happy with it.
Summary: I studied ratings and customer reviews for a while before this purchase. The refrigerator arrived in a container that protected the unit very well. I followed the installation instructions which are very simple. This unit fits well on a counter top and it is very quiet. I find that most bottles fit the shelves with no problems. If you pull out the shelf when it is loaded with bottles, there are no problems choosing the bottle that you want or scraping off labels.
Summary: This was a Christmas gift for my fiance. She loves it. I really like it too. The other reviewers are accurate in that this will not hold every bottle size. Know this going in and it's a moot point. One gripe I have that is not well documented is the noise this little fridge makes. The buzzing (maybe whirring?) noise is quite annoying and surprisingly loud. This is right next to a full-size fridge that is silent. Interesting.
