    The Price Was Right and No Freezer!

    Posted
    Wendora

    I was so sad when my second hand mini-fridge died the other day. Paid $40 and got a little over four years out of it. I embarked on find a replacement and it was frustrating when different sellers did not show interior photos of the units. I wanted a mini fridge with NO FREEZER and that is very difficult to find, After browsing many sites, I was very interested in the Insignia lines as there was no wasted space of a freezer compartment. The 2.6 cubic feet unit was on sale and even though it is a little smaller than I would like, I was not paying a lot more for just a little more room, I will survive with this size. When UPS delivered my fridge, I was very nervous about damage. I must be really lucky because my unit is pristine, no scratches or dents. The foam protecting the unit inside the box is very thin and does not afford that much protection, this should definitely be improved. Plugged the unit in and it got cold which is the job I purchased it for. My only gripe is there is no light inside the fridge like my old Haier had but for the money, I am not going to be upset. It was nice to have this shipped to my home for free, saved my husband aggravation and that is priceless.

    I ordered this fridge for my office at work because the communal fridge was always full and was on the other side of the building to where my office is located. I love that its super quiet and doesn't have a freezer. I don't need all of the fridge space, but it will be nice to store some snacks or drinks I can grab and go with later. I would have given the product 5 stars, but Best Buy shipped it in its original box. It was a little beat up when I got it. This caused it to have dents and scratches all over the fridge itself. I know it would have been wasteful, but shipping it in another box with some more package protection would have been nice. Besides the choice of packaging, its very, very quiet. The previous reviews helped me choose this item because of how quiet people were saying it was. It also started to cool very quickly. Overall its great little fridge. Only down side is how Best Buy decided to handle the packaging and shipping.

    Bought one of these a year ago, its quiet, stable temp, almost a year and still humming along. They have these on sale from time to time. I saw bad reviews about home delivery (damage) so I went to the store and looked at it. They have another model that has a freezer in it, they kinda bait and switch these two, they're identical until you open them. I tried to get a second one today for insulin, and that freezer thing is a deal breaker. Tried to explain to the salesperson that they're advertising is misleading, and although they agreed that it was would not swap me for the other model? You know they pay the same or less for the non-freezer model so its no sweat for them. Most stores would have apologized for the confusing (misleading) ad and made good but not today at best buy. Had a 43-inch tv in my cart too. Now I'm just going to look elsewhere.

    Received this fridge about a month ago, but finally un-boxed it and plugged it in. A little concern it takes a long time to cool off. But that may be a blessing in disguise. It has taken six hours to go from 63 degrees to 47 degrees. I will wait a full 24 hours before I make a bad review. The blessing is, it may take a long time to cool, but that means it is mild on energy use. Once cooled and loaded up, I think it will maintain a steady temp. I have the fridge only, 2.6 cu ft model, and it held over 56 - 12 ounce cans. Not using the bottom shelf, (floor), or the door storage. The door storage is maybe okay. Top row only short bottles. The rest is unsure, a 16.9 oz water bottle may not fit. But all in all, it may be a great fridge, if it continues to cool off. It happened to fit my space perfectly. so that is a thumbs up.

    Purchased to hold us over after our regular fridge died and we researched a new one. Quite quiet. The beverage holders in the door will hold cans and small bottles (think single serve tonic water) The main shelving is not adjustable but the depth let's you lie tall items on their side. The height of the shelves suggest it's well suited to storing cans, not bottles. Temperature seemed relatively uniform throughout the fridge. We placed a temperature gauge inside to help us find the correct temp (about mid-way around the dial) and there did not seem to be any obvious cold/warm spots. Obviously, the door area tended to be a little warmer due to frequent opening and closing but the items stored there were not overly impacted.

    This is my second insignia 2.6 fridge that I purchased which I've been enjoying since the day they arrived. I have one in my bedroom and one in the office and they both serve they're purpose. It's the perfect size for what ever beverages you want to keep cool and it does a decent job of keeping your beverages cool (water, pop, energy drinks, etc.) I have a white one and a black one and they both look better in person but I admit, the white does look slightly better than the black one. I would consider taking a look at this mini fridge first when deciding if you want to spend more money on a name brand model when this brand gives the same performance.

    Works Fine

    Bought this fridge because our big fridge in the kitchen died and for various reasons our kitchen fridge didn't get fixed in a timely manner (side note, never buy an LG brand refrigerator). Anyway this mini-fridge worked fine for the few weeks we needed to keep essentials cold (milk, eggs, meat, etc.). I will say, though, that it was difficult to figure out the best setting to keep things from freezing. Seemed like I was constantly raising or lowering the temp as some days food was getting frozen and other days it wasn't. Regardless, it generally worked fine for what we needed it for.

    It may be a little premature since I just got it yesterday, so far I’m pleased. Before buying I did a google search on best mini fridges and one similar (size and brand) came up. I could have ordered that one from Best Buy online, but I didn’t want to wait, so I went to the store and got this one instead. Got it home, set the setting to 7 and even put in a 12 pack soda and within a few hours everything was cold...ice cold. Dialed it back to 5 today, but so far it does what I wanted it to do. And it’s really quite.

    Good Refrigerator

    Pros: -It's light. Lighter than the much smaller fridge I was replacing. -Lots of room. -Does its job. Keeps my food and drinks cool. Cons: -The condenser is kind of loud when it pops on. Not the worst I've ever heard, but if you're a light sleeper it might disturb you. -I have the black one, not sure if there are other colors but fingerprints show up pretty easily. Not the end of the world, but OCD people (like me) might be constantly wiping it off. Overall it's a good refrigerator. It does what it's supposed to at a pretty good price.

    This fridge is good for keeping things very cold and taking up minimal space in a room/office. The down side of this fridge is interior storage. It’s listed as bigger than most other “office refrigerators,” but I’ve found that my co-worker’s smaller fridges hold more items. All that being said, the price is fantastic and I’ve come to terms with what I’ve purchased and have no regrets because it was so cheap.

    Good Fridge for Dorm

    Purchased for a dorm room. Good value from a capacity vs. price standpoint. The door has soda can holders which are a plus, not taking up shelf space, storage for 8 cans. It has 3 shelves, so a good amount of room. It does make some noise, similar to a regular fridge. Only negative is that there were some scratches on the top of the fridge when I unboxed. Given it's for a dorm room, I didn't bother exchanging. It's a good price, hopefully it'll last at least through 4 years of college.

    I found this on sale at a great price and it works well but the smell of the new fridge is still present and smacks me in the face every time I open it. It's not an unpleasant smell but it is also not something I wish to smell when I'm opening the fridge for food or a beverage. Lastly, it is louder than I expected when it comes to its operating noises. It's in my bedroom so at times it sounds like Darth Vader is breathing in the corner of my room : )

    Holds a lot of cans and keeps them ice cold!

    The first one I picked up in store had a huge dent, Manager went out of his way to get me a replacement the next day from another location. Great for the price, Keeps cans ice cold, no freezers so it really holds a lot of cans. Would have been a 5 star but poorly packaged from factory. Open the box before you leave the store.

    Purchased this little one for my newborn's food storage. This is very cheap and interior looks tidy and fresh design. Overall very good but my refrigerator came with several dings and dents in the body. No paint damage although. Best Buy offered me free return but I just kept it. Only concern is its little noisy particularly when the compressor kicks on. Hope this unit will last long like any other expensive brands.

    This fridge works well and is more than adequate for an office fridge. It arrived with numerous dents, and Best Buy gave me some Best Buy money so I wouldn't return it. Since it's in my office, the dings don't matter, but seriously, Best Buy, this was not okay, and Best Buy money is not the same as money unless I want to spend it at your store.

    I had a small wine refrigerator that finally quit after about eight years. I wanted to have a small replacement and a cheap price that didn't cost $150 or more like a wine fridge. This one has about the same space, and I can put in bottles of beer in there and it's about the same size. Yes, I would recommend this for a second refrigerator.

    The overall construction isn’t the best (feels cheap), but it works well and has a lot of room for the price. I have it for my office and can keep food for a full week in there, plus condiments. Knocked off a star because the little can drawers feel poorly made and it was severely dented when I got it in shipping. Would recommend picking up just to verify condition first.

    It works as advertised. One thing that keeps it from being 5 Star is that they worked so hard keeping this refrigerator compact, if they had only allowed another inch or two of space between items on the door and the interior shelves, the door would close more easily. Other than that, we really like our purchase and the price we paid for the refrigerator.

    Great Little Extra Fridge

    While it was delivered with a few dings on the side (hence the 4 star review), overall it is a great little fridge. They say to start if off at a half setting and by morning the drinks were frozen, so we turned it down even more. Keeps everything nice and cold. If you are just looking for something extra for drinks, this is perfect.

    I've had a number of small refrigerators over the years and they all seem to last a year or two and die. Some brands never really got all that cold. I bought this one because of its good ratings. I also bought an extended warranty with it. It was pretty inexpensive and give me a bit of peace of mind.
