    Excellent Value

    I am very happy with the fridge so far. It looks good, cools and operates as expected. The door is reversible and fits into a std 24" counter opening. My wife loves it which is the only thing that matters - right? We both like the flat wire trays, i.e. no formed wire to hold the bottles in place so you can fit more/different sized bottle in each rack. You do noitce when it is running, the fans will cycle on and off more so than the compressor. It is no louder than the Samsung fridge we have sitting close to it. I don't notice it running until the house is quiet and it is just a new noise until you get used to it. Comparing to other 24" models with the same features and this one is a steal.

    A good refrigerator but beware of size

    Noise ratings for this appliance are varied. I can hear the compressor when it runs but it is not objectionable. The compressor is labeled LG so I'll assume that it's a decent quality unit. I appreciate that the set temperature and the actual temperature are always displayed. This unit has a lot of capacity but that's part of the problem. Apparently the design tries to squeeze every bit of space from an appliance that will fit into a 24 inch opening. The height was a problem for me. I really think they could have made this thing a half inch shorter. Be sure to measure the H, W, and D of your opening because it's big on all dimensions.

    As some mentioned prices for Wine Fridges run from $300 to $2,500. We purchased this on sale and it has been great. My other home fridge makes as much noise as this item. Every now and then it does make a few cycling sounds but nothing more than a dishwasher. The cycling sounds were more frequent before we got to see what temp it should be at. This is not a food refrigerator so don't set the temp so low. We have it set at 45 degrees and that seems to be the best for any kind of noise it makes and wine temp.

    The wine cooler has been working properly since arrived. Although we noticed there is a big dent on the right corner after opening from the package. we decided to keep it to see if everything works correctly. Another big reason we didn't return it because it is big and heavy. The delivery was as expected. I would rate it higher if there was no damage on the wine cooler.

    Purchased the Danby wine cooler after purchasing a GE that was too small and not very impressive for the same cost as the Danby. The fit looks like its "built in" and it looks like we spent $1,000 or more on this unit. The racks are large in size for keeping different types of wines which is nice, also the racks are easy removable. The unit is quiet and I would buy another if I had to! so far so good!

    Worked great for about a year

    Looks great, fits perfectly under the counter, has nice capacity, and worked fine for about a year. A couple of weeks ago I noticed that the temp readout was much higher than the temp setting. The motor runs, and a feeble stream of tepid air comes out of the vent in the back, but it's not nearly enough to chill the contents. Not even paid for yet and it's already in need of repair. Oh, well. Better luck next time.

    Our dual zone Vinotemo compressor went out after 3 years and the repairman suggested a single zone unit as the more durable option. We ordered this Danby and are very satisfied with it. It is so much quieter than our Vinotemp cooler and we've been pleased with the temperature of our wines.

    A nice looking fridge that works well. Have not had any issues with it. Bottles are a bit difficult to store and remove. The shelves are very close together and do not pull out completely so it takes a bit of work to maximize the storage capacity. Otherwise am very happy with the fridge.

    We shopped around for a wine cooler for about a month and finally settled on a Danby cooler. We are glad we did since the product has been trouble free. Living in Florida I would expect an extreme workload to maintain a reasonable stable temperature and the unit has worked out wonderful.

    Very happy with my purchase. Holds more than 50 bottles if you get creative. Had another one and returned immediately. Love this works both under cabinet and free standing. Maintains temps well so far and was easy to switch the door swing. Love it!

    We bought this in 2009 and it was a lemon. But Danby won't even replace it. It works if it's not recessed and temp jumps to 75 a few minutes after it's fully recessed. We recommend you stay away from Danby. Our unit has NEVER worked as designed!

    I was looking for a single zone wine fridge for my red wines. This wine fridge is perfect for my home. It can be installed into my counter top. Customizable temperature controls. Very quiet. I hope it last a very long time.

    So far so good with this Danby Cooler. Simple but not as fancy as my previous cooler (but also almost half the price.) This unit is very functional,works great and was easy to setup. Great value! Absolutely no complaints on this product so far!

    Though physically only a few inches larger than my old wine refrigerator that died after 18 yrs, this one hold way more wine. The negative is it is noisy. But the options are slim for a unit this size that's not built in.. it's fine.

    We selected this Danby wine cooler based on our experience with our Danby refrigerator quality and the perfect freestanding size for our home. The temperature was easy to set and monitor. It is quiet, looks good, and the shelves are easy to work with.

    I've only had the wine cooler for a few months but so far it has lived up to the reviews online. I would recommend it to anyone that is into wine.
