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. Or if your bottle of wine is more expensive then the wine cooler... well... This unit is not meant to be put in the garage, an attic, outside on your deck or in a boat.
Summary: My brother bought me one last year and loved it so much I bought him one this year! It's perfect for the average wine enthusiast. Love that there are two sets of temperature controls (one for red and one for white).
Summary: We've had it about two months and so far, it has worked as promised. It really helps reducing the space taken up with wine bottles in the frig and I like the temperature of the wine better. I'm one who thinks room temperature for red wine means 60 degrees and not 70 or more.
First unit died in less than 5 months, replacement working great [updated]

Summary: It was a decent wine refrigerator until it died today after less than 5 months of usage. It's out of Amazon warranty and will need to reach out to manufacturer, however my hopes are not high. UPDATE: I will add 2 more stars solely on the manufacturer replacement because after contacting vendor they shipped a new unit for free (in fact, they never asked me to ship the old unit back, it sits in my garage boxed up ready to shipt, but I ain't paying for shipping for sure).
