Summary: I bought this product in April of 2013, and well within the first year, one of the fans malfunctioned. I contacted Wine Enthusiast, and it sent me a replacement fan, although it now claims it had no obligation to do so, since I purchased this item from Amazon.
Summary: I think the problem with a lot of negative reviews is people don't understand how a product works. This is meant to hold your less expensive wines and is not mean for really long storage. A couple years sure, but 5, 10, 15, 20? If you storing wine that long, buy a wine cellar.
Summary: I have read so many reviews and compared so many different models. At first, I was really skeptical about its noise because the cooler would sit right behind me at my desk. I don't hear a thing. It's a beauful piece with a front dark mirror and inside light button.
Mine is also "louder than silent" - is it worth the gamble?

Summary: The bright LED temperature read out is nice, but a bit too bright if you're not accustomed to it. The wine seems to stay at a nice and consistent temperature. My main complaint is that it is not silent: I can easily hear the fans whirring.
