    Way Better than expected!

    I purchased this in store at my local Best Buy. I recently moved into a bonus studio behind our house that we renovated. I wanted a mini fridge to keep some drinks and snacks stored and cold at a convenient area in my new space. I saw this fridge and was in awe at the price and instantly had to have it. After I purchased it though...I definitely got scared as I scrolled through the reviews and most were lackluster. However, the moment I set it up, it began to cool. At the default setting of 3 the fridge actually gets super cold I do not see the purpose in using it all the way up to 7! I lowered it to 2, and it works great. It got cold quickly as well. It's also very quiet and you can barely hear it hum when the compressor kicks on, and it only kicks on for short intervals of time. Some people have said it gets really hot on the sides. Yes it does, however, only when the compressor is running. Once off, the fridge returns to regular temp at its sides. As for the space, you're really getting a lot of room for 89$! 2.6 sq. ft. is really ideal. Love that switching the door is an option. It isn't too heavy and its easy to maneuver around. The cord is a decent length as well. I wish it was a tad longer but it works. Overall I highly recommend. Bought it in black, very sleek and matches my room decor.

    Needed more space in our Best Buy kitchen refrigerator for our new diets + ideal temperature for beer/Ales. This was a GREAT SOLUTION: After -$20 + sale price, got this jewel home ... test results: 1. never get a customer angry by making him peel off super thin saranwrap on 3 sides + 1/2 the door ... it does NOT protect from scratches, DUH! 2. digital thermometer inside says you DON'T have to wait 24hrs on thermostat #4 to get things stabilized prior to loading it up food/drink ... it got down to 32d F PRONTO 3. setting 5.25 seems to give ideal & stable Ale temperatures of 43-44d F, no variation beyond 0.4d F rest of day, even if door opens to fetch an item 4. long necks and most 12oz glass bottles do NOT reside in door "cup holders" ... for cans only 5. LOVE NOT having a freezer hog inside Debunking other reviews, even thought their units may need to be replaced with one like mine: NOT noisy, whisper quiet HUGE size As for dents/scratches Pick up from store, as outside delivery (esp. FedEx) throws these things around, even breaks through excellent padding/protection ... same with window ACs If the black version, use a black Sharpie on imperfections or decals

    Nice! Refrig. without the cheap ice box!

    Not sure why mini frig makers keep adding that cheap ice maker that you have to manually defrost every other week which was always a pain.... Glad BB had a model without one. With our family of 5 and constantly running out of space in the French Door main frig, needed a second one just for smaller items like milk juice, etc and keep fruits/veg/left over in the main one. What's interesting about this is that it can also act as a freezer..See attachment. Set it on level 6 and inside temp was 29 F. But not sure it was intended to work like that. Pro: Plenty of space Great Value! No ice box! Quiet. I was surprised at how little noise it makes. Can sit flush against the wall (but we leave a 1/2 inch space) Cons: Slides easily on hard wood floor. Had to place some stick on "gripper pads" to prevent it from moving when you open/close the frig, etc. Packed the AC cable so tight into the back and was around the condenser coil that you have to be very careful when removing it.

    Great refrigerator for beers

    After more than a year of keeping beer samples in the main kitchen fridge, my girlfriend had had enough. She demanded I make room for regular food. Not wanting to have overindulge in one night, which simply wouldn't have been possible, I grabbed my brother and took to Best Buy. Nearly overwhelmed in Best Buy's selection of kitchen appliances, we nevertheless quickly found the perfect refrigerator. It holds plenty of beers that I routinely get, but with an ever-increasing flow in, it might be time for a second one!

    I got this to set on a kitchen counter top at home while I was recovering from back surgery and couldn't bend over and down to reach into my regular refrigerator. Before purchase, I was concerned that it wouldn't be able to keep things cold, but Best Buy reviewers said it did for them. They were right. I have now recovered and have given this to a relative who is using it as a small 2nd refrigerator for water and snacks in the upstairs of his house and is happy with it.

    Good small fridge....

    So far so good. I bought this for my studio so I could have cold drinks and keep leftovers cold till I head home. This is perfect for that. Didn't want one of those dumb freezer areas that don't really freeze . Didn't want to spend the extra cost for the mini that has separate freezer. This got cold fast and keeps things cold. There is a thin protective plastic all over the outside of unit that is a bit of a hassle to get off around the door connection. Actually takes a bit of patience to peel from the whole unit but not big thing. Say good bye to Mr ice chest!

    Right Product for Small Space

    We purchased this fridge to replace my wife's mother's unit in her long-term care facility. And she loves it. It has a reversible door, which allowed us to move the door opening to the left hinges, giving her a lot more access in the small space she has for it. She is able to easily open / close it from her wheelchair and see all of the contents. It does not have a freezer space, but she is good with that since it means she doesn't have to worry about defrosting it. Keeps the contents nice a cold. Would definitely recommend it be considered for a small space.

    Got this for my office as I needed a fridge without an ice maker so I wouldn't have to deal with defrosting, ever. I love it. Despite having read many reviews about dents I bought it anyways as small fridges without freezers are rare, plus the extra size was perfect. Yes, it had some dents, but since it was going under my desk it didn't matter as they were all in the top back of it. Works perfectly. Fits so much food and beverages. Sometimes a little noisy when running but its not that loud and it doesn't last long. I highly recommend!

    Ideal for a second fridge or small space living area. We have an Insignia freezer, so thought I’d go with this mini fridge. Takes some arranging to get all your drinks and stuff in to maximize space. I’m very pleased with my purchase, cooled quickly. I would have been even happier if there was a light in this fridge. No big deal and this item still got five stars from me. I ordered online and Best Buy had it ready for me in a short period of time.

    I researched several mini fridge and finally decided to pull the trigger on this fridge . I an extremely happy with my decision . It is not very loud when it kicks in to cool things down . A slight buzz/ hum but nothing annoying . It has plenty of space for basic needs . Only complaint are the side compartments for beverages . Its designed mainly for cans and not water bottles etc . Not a deal breaker tho .

    Great Fridge

    I am using this outside on my back porch, the unit stays cold even when the temperature is warm outside. Only downside to this item, I did pick it up in store, when I got home and unpacked it, I found a dime size dent on the door of the unit and some "buff mark scratches" on the sides. Since its going to be outside, I don't mind it much, but I did contact Customer Service and they helped me with my amount paid a little. But overall GREAT product!

    Very happy with this purchase. We bought it for my son's college apartment. He was looking for a small fridge to keep cold drinks in his room. This one is great. There's no freezer to take up space inside, and don't have to worry about possible ice melting onto the carpet. It has ample capacity. We had some spare ceramic tiles that we set it on to keep it off the carpet. It was already level, so there's was no adjustment we had to make. We got a lot of fridge for the price.

    Great Fridge for the Dorm

    This fridge is quiet and compact, perfect for my dorm room, keeping everything in it nice and cold. There is a temperature adjust dial from 0 to 7 and when set at 5 it keeps the temp steady at 30F. The glass shelves are adjustable which was helpful in putting as much as I could in it. I chose this fridge over the standard rental mini-fridge that most universities offer. I also got the same brand microwave and it fits perfectly on top of this fridge.

    Good Beer Fridge

    This is a great little fridge. I put it in my office as a beer fridge and love it. I added a cheep little digital thermometer and it easily keeps my beer an ideal 42 degrees at a "3" on the dial. It's generally pretty quiet. It makes normal fridge noises but doesn't bother me in my very quiet space. It's an also an excellent beverage fridge because of the lack of a silly little freezer on top. I would recommend it.

    I bought this as a simple, small beverage fridge for my room as I live with others. It is a great little fridge. I let it get to temp by letting it sit for 24 hours before using and it has done a great job so far. The best part of the fridge is that it is totally quiet! I hear nothing from it at all other than a very small click when it turns on to keep the temp. Solid appliance so far.

    I'm remodeling my house, don't want or need a full size fridge that I'll have to move around, just wanted something small to keep drinks and things like veggies cool. Easy to figure out how to make it cooler, or warmer, keeps stuff cold, quiet, and the perfect size for my pc to sit on top of. The other positive reviews and it's depth/width measurements for the pc were the main reason I bought it, and it's been perfect.

    I bought this in order to have quick access to water and sodas in my home theater room and I will say this fridge has a great capacity for all kinds of drinks. It’s really quiet even when watching movies at low volume and matches my theater interior even better. Keeps drinks really cold without even having to turn the knob all the way up. Recommend for all with extra bars, game rooms or home theaters.

    Love this fridge. I replaced a smaller (1.5 cu/ft) that had a freezer, which I never used. I was looking for a larger fridge for cold drinks and without a freezer. BB was offering this freezerless Insignia unit and another same size Insignia that had a freezer for the same price. The fridge is well made and holds temperature perfectly. I have no use for the freezer so the choice was easy and I'm very happy with my purchase.

    Great design allows more interior storage

    Having the cooling coils on the back interior rather than in a freezer area at the top provides more internal storage area. The top shelf can be removed so that space will hold 12-16oz bottles. I now get just as much stuff in this unit as I did in my older higher cu.ft. unit. I never used the freezer in my old unit as it was too small to be functional. I use this in my lanai summer kitchen. It fits below the cabinet just right.

    I have no issues with the fridge, but when it arrive at my house (shipped to my home) I looked like it fell down a set of stairs. As always though, the team at my local store made it right and ordered me a new one. Which this time will be shipped to the store! I ordered this one because it didn’t have the freezer compartment. It’s just what I wanted and needed for the man cave.
