    We purchased this after having a bad experience with one we bought elsewhere that had a terrible toxic smell that would not go away and got into the water bottles and on the cans. After we spent three months trying to make the smell go away, we exchanged for another one and that one also had the smell. We gave up and decided to try this one. This fridge is great and is much nicer than the one we had previously. First off, no bad smell!! It also cools much faster and keeps temperature very even from top to bottom, which the other one did not do (this one has a small fan that circulates the air and keeps the coil defrosted - a huge plus!!) It runs very quiet and looks great. No complaints on operation or appearance. The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5; The interior width is just slightly too narrow to allow 6 cans across (maybe 1/2 inch-1 inch short at most). This is annoying since it is designed as a beverage cooler, why make it way too wide for 5 cans but not quite enough for 6? Theoretically you can get 6 cans across if you stagger them, but then that makes them difficult to remove. The problem is that the supports for the shelves stick out a bit from the sides. In the bottom section that has no shelf supports in the way you can get 6 cans across (or same if you lay the cans on their side on any shelf, but that greatly reduces the total it can hold). So they say it can hold 114 cans; I can't get anywhere close to that number and would love for someone at Insignia to explain how that is possible. Bottom section can hold 12, and each of the remaining three shelves could hold 24 at most (4 deep and 6 across) which is 84, but you also have to account for the fan on the top shelf, which will eliminate at least another 3, so 81 maybe at most. If you want nice rows so people can actually get the cans out without knocking others onto the floor, you can get 20 per shelf (-3 on the top shelf), plus 12 at the bottom, total of 69 at most. We ended up putting bottled water on the top shelf which does allow us to get 6 across and 4 deep, except the two middle rows are 3 deep because of the fan (22 total), and cans on the remaining two shelves and bottom, so overall it still works fine for us, but nowhere near the stated capacity. That part is disappointing, but fridge works so well we will live with this shortcoming, just seems like something that could have so easily been addressed with a little thought.

    Picked this up and I am happy so far. This thing looks great and it feels solid. Adjusting the temperature was a bit of a pain as I supposed that you needed to "press" the arrow down and it was not very responsive. I was honestly going to "blast" this feature in my review when I discovered that if I lightly touched the arrow that it immediately responded. It would be nice to have something on setting the temperature outside of the manual (how many guys read the manual unless we have to?). Once I figured that out I was able to set the temp down to 36 and I will see how well this does for me. This has a glass door which is great for appearance but not for insulation but I can deal with the few extra dollars of electricity cost.

    Nice cooler does what I was looking for

    I was looking for a beverage cooler for the finished basement bar area that could keep beer, water, soda and other drinks cold. I had been searching the internet but was in the local Best Buy for another item and noticed the beverage cooler on sale. The price and reviews on the cooler were what got me. I’ve had the cooler now for over 30 days and I’m pleased with its performance, look and noise level. It’s kept the beer, water and other items cold which was one of my major concerns when looking for a beverage cooler. It’s very quiet and does not interfere with TV viewing. It’s size and look are appealing as it fits in nice with my newly finished family room bar area in the basement. I would recommend this to a friend.

    Brought this home and followed instructions for start up. Keeps can cold. Haven’t actually checked if it’s keeping it at the set temperature though. Good enough for me. Like others, it seems silly not to have the interior just millimeters wider to accomodate 6 cans laying flat. Biggest complaint is that the middle back makes the cans so cold that it caused on to explode. This effectively reduces the ability to store any cans near this area for fear of this occurring. Overall I am happy with it given the price. I’ve freed up lots of space previously used by cans in my regular refrigerator. Looks good too

    I was looking for a beverage cooler for a while, I found wine coolers (that don't go low enough temp-wise for soda & beer) that looked nice with glass and chrome. Then I found this one (in-store) and have been happy since my purchase. It holds a lot, shelves are adjustable, very well-built, glass-front is a definite plus. I haven't used the LED lighting much, but it's nicely implemented. I wish there was to activate the light when the door opens, but at this price, I have no complaints. I'm sure you're wondering if it's quiet...yes. it is!!

    I really like this fridge. It is 99% of what i was looking for in a drink fridge. My only three minor issues are noise, door, and shelf. When the fridge kicks on youll hear it. It isnt horrible by a long shot. The noise level is exactly ok. Not great, not bad. The rubber feet seem to slide a bit on my wood floor when the door is closed. Minor and ill probably fix it later but it is shuffling oh so slowly over time. This last one is just a nit pick. A half size shelf so 2L bottles fit on bottom but all the shelf isnt lost.

    A great not so mini fridge

    Bought this unit because my old mini fridge was getting old and I was not using the freezer part which only created unbreakable ice blocks. The top portion of the cooler keeps soda's, beers and other liquids nice and frosty, not so much on the bottom. So keep the liquids you drink the most on top and limit what you put on the bottom. The only complaint I have is that the digital readout is quite bright and at night I need to cover it since it is located across from my bed. Other than that this thing is great.

    I find that if I fill this fridge completely, my beer is a little warmer than I like. If I fill it half way it is acceptable. For pop it is a great fridge. For beer it is a good fridge. It could be slightly wider and be able to fit another full row of cans. I am happy that it is very quiet and looks nice. I had to swap the door to the other side and the holes would not line up, had to drill new holes in the bracket. Overall I happy with the purchase.

    My husband and I had been wanting a mini fridge with a glass door for a while so when we saw this option on sale we went for it. We get so many compliments on the sleek look of this fridge and it works really well to cool our beverages in the “man cave.” The only negative comment is that the bottom section of the fridge isn’t as big and doesn’t fit much but it wasn’t a deal breaker for our needs.

    Could have been great...but for its width

    Given that the aluminum can is, and has been, a pretty standard size for decades, you would think this refrigerator would be designed for them. Nope. As other reviewers have noted, it is roughly 1" too narrow inside to hold a 6-pack of sodas width-wise. So far the temperature control has been good. My only other suggestion for its improvement would be feet that have 'grip' so it doesn't slide all over the place when opening and closing the door.

    This is a replacement for a previous fridge which kept icing up. That had yet to happen with the Insignia despite the fact that there is minimal room behind it for air exhaust. Temperatures remain consistent and the available space for cans is perfect. Would be nice to have a few wine bottle holders but no big deal.

    Love that this fridge looks sleek and modern for a game room/office. Tons of space and love that it has touch controls for temp (so much better than typical mini fridges with the knob style temp control). Only reason it didn’t get 5 stars is there were a few very small dents and a piece of metal sticking up. Hopefully that can be shaved down.

    Love this little fridge! I’ve had it for 6-8 months now... Looks great, Love the clear door! Could Be better if led lights went around inside to cover more area with light, 1 can in the middle on top shelf and you lose visibility. But still keeps drinks nice and cold. Like the Thermostat led readout.

    This refrigerator keeps cans and bottles really cold. Much better than other units costing two or three times more. But, fit and finish are average at best. On mine the corners of the door don’t line up very well. Not a big deal to me but if you want something that looks nice this may not be the beat choice.

    If you are just keeping cans in there, it works great and fits. Problem is, I'm a beer drinker and buy all different sizes/types. This fridge isn't as customizable as I had hoped for to accommodate this need. But it really looks neat with the glass door, I make it work....

    We use this for refrigerated meds, pop, leftovers, and beer - things that were making the big refrigerator too stuffed. easy to access and helps a lot! My only quibble is that it doesn't seem to get quite as cold as the setting says (measured with a refrigerator thermometer) - but it gets cold enough

    So far, so good. It is attractive in our basement entertainment area. It is very quiet. The temperature is reading at 35 degrees so our beverages are at a nice cold temperature we like. We'll see how it does in the summer when it tends to get a little humid. For now we are loving it!

    This beverage cooler is spartan yet just nice enough for the money. It is not a designer beverage cooler or anything but so far it has performed well and it looks great in our new kitchen which was really expensive!....so it was nice to not have to spill a bunch of beans on this item.

    We really like the size and price of this cooler. It works well And looks nice. The only thing we would have liked better would be a selection of shelves. We had to choose between one set up for pop, or one set up for wine bottles. We could not interchange, and we have both we need to store in here.

    I have turned down the thermostat to 37 and while the drinks come out cold they seemed colder coming out of the old fridge set to 40. The light doesn't have a feature to turn on when door is open which is annoying. Runs fairly quiet though.
