    I measured with a thermometer, and unit cools well. The "4" setting, as they state in the manual, is appropriate for regular use (keeps the fridge compartment at <40deg F, which is the recommended setting for food safety). The separate freezer compartment was my primary reason for getting this fridge, and it works well. Much like the 4.3cu-ft Insignia fridge that has a lot of reviews about units arriving damaged, my unit came with damage on the side that, based on the intact condition of the shipping box and styrofoam packaging, appeared to have occurred before shipping (poor QC it seems). I decided to go with the 3.0cu-ft this time, because there were a lot less reviews complaining about damage compared to the 4.3cu-ft one. Guess I didn't get lucky. And although smaller, this fridge is actually less energy-efficient than it's 4.3cu-ft cousin. But both are Energy-star rated. The advertising says this is 3.0 cu-ft while the manual says it is 3.1cu-ft, with most competitor offerings in the 3.1-3.3cu ft range. So I'd say it's slightly smaller than the others, but I doubt anyone can actually tell the difference. They pretty much look all the same on the inside. Compressor has a buzzing sound to it that makes it a lot more annoying than that of my old GE compact fridge, which emits more of a hum. Yes, my fridge is level. So I'd say it isn't appropriate if you're sticking this fridge in your bedroom (e.g. dorm room) and have sensitive hearing - at least I wouldn't be able to sleep with it nearby. Overall, I'm satisfied with the unit and can accept the flaws given that it was less expensive on sale than all the other comparable units I looked at.

    Perfect Dorm Room Frig/Freezer

    Was very excited to order this product because it was the right size for trig and freezer for a college dorm room. Looks great except for 1 thing. When we brought it to college, we left it in the room and our son opened after we left. There is a HUGE dent on the freezer door. He didn't say anything about it because he thought we bought a used product. Two months later, we go to visit and see the huge dent. He thought we knew. We did not. Not sure at this point if anything can be done. I called but was told that he would have to call to schedule appt for someone to come out. Not sure what to do except use it as is. But would really rather have a new freezer door sent to replace damaged one. Just extremely disappointed because we expected a product without dents or blemishes. I would still recommend this product but would also recommend that you open immediately upon receipt!!

    Great dorm fridge

    This fridge is a perfect size for the average dorm room. This unit is quiet, has tons of space, and features two doors instead of a single door. I have purchased other units before this one but it was not as nice as this fridge. I have had this unit for over a month and have had no issues. Having two doors on this unit is a plus because it prevents the freezer compartment from icing up, like other single door units. As a student I am always on the go so the freezer on this unit is the perfect place for frozen dinners. This unit is great for storing milk, protein shakes, yogurt, and fresh produce. Another plus for this unit would be that it’s super quiet and is barely noticeable when I watch TV, or study. The one thing I wish I could improve on this unit would be how cold I can get it. It has great temperature control but I like to keep my groceries extra cold, hence only four stars. Given the choice I would purchase this fridge unit again in a heartbeat. This is the perfect fridge for the price, size, and quality. I highly recommend this product.

    Insignia 3.1 cu ft dorm room fridge

    Ordered this for my son's dorm room. appeared to have everything we wanted and it was on sale. Was told by sales person that this was as good or better than compatible Whirlpool. Not true! First fridge was shipped and received damaged...cheap plastic on top was broken. Returned and a second fridge was sent also damaged, also the top plastic piece was damaged. My wife wanted to keep it as "good enough"...I said we paid for a new model. I am convinced that the top piece made of a very cheap plastic is too easily broken and will opt for the Whirlpool elsewhere that I should have purchased in the first place. Total waste of 4 weeks!

    I was somewhat hesitant to buy this due to some reviews noting the frig was dented upon delivery. I went ahead anyway since it was on sale for half price (only $99.99) and figured I could return it to store if it shipped with dents. I was pleasantly surprised that it arrived in PERFECT condition, not even the tiniest dent or scratch anywhere. We plugged it in our laundry room to test it out before our son leaves for college in a month. It works perfectly. The freezer compartment is extra nice. Lots of space and will hold everything a typical college student will need. I highly recommend this. Runs quietly, looks great, convenient size for dorm room, big enough to hold everything.

    Better Than I Expected

    I bought this out from the middle of nowhere, and I did not even need a new mini fridge. But, thanks to the Deals of the Day, the price was slashed in half for one day, and I bought it. And MAN, do I LOVE this fridge!!! it is way bigger than I anticipated, and I am so happy that it has a working freezer. In fact, it works a little too well... I also like the two-tone of the silver and black, as it blends in well with any surroundings. And, the bottom part has a light to be able to see the inner contents better. One of the shelves inside is removable for extra space, and it has so many other features. Now, this thing is mine until it dies or until I die, whichever comes first.

    Damaged corner upon delivery.

    The Fridge appears to working as expected. Lots of reviewers talked about receiving damaged products and more recently many spoke about the improved packaging that prevented such damage. Ours was damaged in the upper right hand corner. I e-mailed about it but received no response. Had to buy black electrical tape to fix the top corner. Otherwise, the Best Buy process of ordering the product and having it delivered to my daughter's college town worked flawlessly. We were able to get in and out of the store within 5 minutes. Disappointed by the damage but doesn't effect how the fridge works.

    Great little fridge

    I ordered my fridge online the night of Aug.8, 2017. It arrived Aug.11, I followed instructions and waited several hours after delivery before plugging it in to electric outet. And the temp was already preset on 4. I ran it for about 4 days before putting anything in it. It works great ! I absolutely love my little fridge. I set the temp on 5 after running several days on the 4 which it preset to. The fridge is just right and the freezer freezes as expected. I can't say enough about how pleased I am with it. You won't be disappointed ! I would definitely recommend this fridge to anyone.
