    A great refrigerator, but noisy

    The refrigerator worked well and remained very cold unlike some smaller refrigerators that don't stay cold enough to keep ice frozen. The only draw back was that the unit was very noisy. It sounded kind of like a dishwasher as the compressor circulated the coolant. I had it in my office for about a week and it was noisy enough that I couldn't concentrate. I ended up returning it for a different brand that proved to be quieter. If the noise doesn't bother you though, I would recommend the product.

    Doesn’t fit long necks on the top shelf

    Posted

    I didn’t find the following info in the reviews: top shelf height 8.5”, bottom shelf height 6.5”. You can fit 10 12 oz cans on the bottom shelf, 15 .5L water bottles on the top shelf, 5 long necks and one more can on the door. A 6 pack of long necks could go in horizontal on the top shelf in the cardboard carrier. I will probably be returning this for a larger model that holds long neck bottles better. I can’t really rate the fridge as I didn’t plug it in.

    Good but loud

    Read the reviews and saw it was loud but thought I could handle a little white noise. Got it today and it isn't just a little white noise. It sounds like an airplane taking off like another reviewer mentioned. I don't have the energy or time to return so I will be keeping it. But it is the loudest fridge I've ever heard. I didn't think fridges could be that loud. It's not a 24/7 thing, but here and there. I guess I'll get used to it.

    When I went on a search for a small refrigerator for a specific space/size. I had no idea how few options available. So I purchased another brand and it just fit the space. The next week on a visit to BEST BUY I walked past this gem. It fit the desired location, and offers all the flexibility needed. The only thing I notice during quite times you hear the compressor kick on. If you are around the usual "white noise", it will blend away.

    Replaced an almost 40 year old mini-fridge with this unit and have been very pleased so far. Looks good, the temperature settings work well, the door has adjustable legs to balance out the frig, and the motor is very quiet. I didn't see any energy bill spike after putting this in either. My only negative is that the inside shelf is wire plastic so you can't easily put cans or bottles up there. I plan to have a glass shelf replacement made.

    I purchased this as I needed somewhere to store breast milk at my office. After a couple of months of use the back has completely frozen over. I also have to keep it on almost the highest setting in order to keep the internal temperature under 40F. Most likely would've been better if I shelled out a little more money for a better brand but all in all it does keep things cold.

    Got this for college dorm room. Liked that there wasn't a little freezer in it , so it held more fridge only items. Test ran for a week and found it to be fairly quiet. Can here the cooler start in a quiet room in the middle of the floor. Better by the wall with the furniture. No complaints from my son since college started. Items are staying cold with middle settings. (pop mainly)

    It’s not loud. Keeps items very cold. If u think it has scratches or is dull, don’t forget to take of the plastic layer. Clean with baking soda before use, mine had that new chemical smell. Over all it’s a great product! Keep in mind for delivery, it comes in its original packaging showing it’s a fridge.

    My mother is in a patient in a nursing home. There is very limited space in her room, but she likes have cold sodas to drink. This mini fridge was the perfect size. Just plugged it in, so we'll see how cold it gets. It seems quiet. It didn't sit level on the floor, but it has adjustable legs, so I was able to fix the wobble.

    I purchased this mini fridge for my husbands birthday. I had been wanting to get him one for his man cave for a while, but hadn't found any for a reasonable price and size. I was thrilled when I found this one. I was a great price and it fit perfectly! It's a great size for beverages, and it's extremely quiet. We are both very happy!

    Got a good deal on this mini fridge. Was on sale. Free shipping. Works great. Use it at my school in my classroom. Not sure about others but fridge is pretty quiet. No ice tray ( waste of space anyways) holds many soda cans and bottles. Side door is a bit loose but open it slow, no problems. Very happy with purchase

    Pretty good but a little noisy

    I bought it for my office and it does a great job of cooling drinks and keeping leftovers cold (even the mid-level setting is frigid). The fridge does, however, occasionally make these very low whooshing/growling noises! I don't mind it at work but it may annoy someone in a dorm. Otherwise, very good fridge for the $.

    Purchased this fridge for my office. Very good fridge quiet motor. I went with the smallest fridge possible so It wouldn’t be noticeable in my office. It is noticeable because it is small, but if you’re looking for a fridge that easily hold a fewlunch bags and a 6 pack of bottles/cans this does its job.

    I just turned my garage into a office so I needed a small refrigerator to keep my beverages cool. I was looking at used items but came across this on sale. It is very quiet with easily adjustable feet to get it level. All the components of the fridge seem to be of good quality. Recommended!!!!

    My refrigerator stopped working, so I needed a mini-fridge for the week I had no way of cooling milk, medicine, juice, ginger ale and other necessities. A friend was able to reverse the way the door opened, making the appliance even handier for me to open and close in the small space available in my small kitchen.

    My son got this for Christmas. When he opened the mini fridge it was damaged and dented in on the top of the mini fridge. Very bummed the product came that way. Now I will have to take back to the store and go out of my way. Ordered it again and hoping this time it will come undamaged.

    I honestly thought it would not be able to make the drinks in the fridge cold enough, because it took a while to do so the very first time I plugged the fridge in, but now it gets my drinks very cold relatively quickly when I turned the dial to 7 (max cool setting).

    Bought this mini fridge for our bedroom to store breast milk and water bottles in to make night feedings easier then running through the house. Perfect size for our purpose! It’s not whisper quiet but not loud either. Keeps things very cold even on a low setting

    For the price, I thought I was getting a steal. I need it to be stealth so I can hide it at work, but, this things tends to make a swishing noise that can be easily detected when the room is quiet. It does its job in cooling things, but, like I said, I wish the manufacturers could have made it run softer.
