    Decent Value for the Price

    Contrary to several of the other buyers, my wine cooler arrived without any dings or dents in it. It is actually very quiet when the compressor is running. I made a choice between this model and a slightly larger sized Frigidaire wine cooler at Lowe's for about the same price. The Frigidaire has a dial to set the temperature between cold-colder-coldest, so you have to adjust with a thermometer through trial and error. This one has a digital LED to set the temp. My only complaint so far is that the LED display does not stay illuminated. After you set the temp the unit will automatically lock the display panel and turn off the LED. You cannot tell what the temperature is by looking at it. I will get a thermometer with a remote sensor so that I can see what the internal temp is at any time. Also, be aware that tall bottles (e.g. Riesling) cannot fit this cooler unless you store them sideways. Standard sparkling wine bottles do fit however. Wine coolers in general have a pretty bad track record for reliability. I purchased on a credit card for an extra year of protection. I will update if/when any problems arise. I've only had it for a week, but so far so good.

    Happy Overall

    Because of other reviews, I picked up in-store. There were no dents or damage to the wine cooler. It seems to be pretty flexible on bottle size. I currently have a lot of expensive bottles that are noticeably heavier and slightly thicker and/or longer than a traditional bottle from the supermarket. With these thicker bottles, I had to reverse the middle bottle to get all 5 bottles to comfortable fix on the rack. If you tend to have a lot of bulbous wine bottles (ex. pinot noir lover), you might have trouble getting 29 bottles to fit. My only complaints are that the temperature swings a little more than I would like. According to the hanging thermostat I put in there, it runs 2-3 degrees warmer than I set and the temperature swings about 5 degrees between cycles. I've only had it for 3 weeks, but it seems pretty quiet. If this turns out to be a reliable appliance, I will be very happy with the purchase considering the price point.

    Terrible Control Panel

    The temperature control panels are terrible and not user friendly. Panel Display only stays lit for 30 seconds. The only way to tell the temperature is to open the front door and push the temp control button. This is irritating. Panel stays black giving impression it is not working after 30 second time frame. And pressing "lock" feature does not light up or indicate a lock position - so no ability to tell if it is on except start pressing buttons to see if anything happen. Another irritation. All other functions of the cooler work well (compressor, etc)

    Good news: Cooler is quiet (compared to my 2 others) and seems to maintain temperature well. Bad news: Best Buy states the "form factor" is built-in although another part of the description says freestanding. It is for freestanding use ONLY according to the user guide. Also the cooler uses a flammable refrigerant and comes with warnings about proper care. When I unpacked the cooler there were a couple dents on the upper right side edge even though the box looked undamaged in that area.

    I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my with after I noticed all the boxes of wine building up in the closet under the stairs. It's was the perfect gift. The build quality is what I expected for the price. The instructions for reversing the door opening could be better. It holds the temperature really well. We hardly notice any sounds when the compressor is running. Now my fingers are crossed hoping it lasts longer than 5 years.

    We bought this to replace a similar unit (different brand) that quit working after a few years. It seems to work well and it is easy to use. Quiet and keeps our white wine at a temperature we enjoy. It does not seem to run a lot after reaching temperature. I gave it 4 stars because I was not thrilled with the bottom rack since we often stand taller bottles upright. Other than that, the unit is great for our needs.

    I am new to the wine cooler world. With that in mind, please know that I did a terrific amount of product research prior to this purchase. We needed a small wine cooler here in our FL condo. Small footprint, good amount of storage, EXTREMELY quiet (that would have been a deal breaker for me). Excellent purchase.

    So far so good after 30 days. Temperature has been accurate. There was a small ding on each side of the unit upon delivery. Fortunately it's in the garage, so not a high-visibility location. (Other reviews had complained of dings as well.) Other than using better protective packaging, this wine cooler is fulfilling our needs.

    Bought this to replace a new air brand that stopped working after 6 months. This is far superior to the new air brand in simple cosmetics along with quality. Once you get this out of the box you can feel this is a quality built cooler. The bottles are nice and cool as they should be with a quality working cooler. Would recommend

    I gave it a four because I orders it online and it came banged up. I took it to Best Buy , they apologized and gave me one they had at the store. Best Buy has great customer service and insignia is their product. It fit perfect and works great. It is a great product for it’s quality price ratio. I leave the led on. Looks great.

    Great wine cooler (and quiet)

    This has been a great wine cooler. It was important to us that it be quiet so we read many reviews before choosing this one (other people have said that this one is quiet). We can also confirm, it is quiet. It barely makes a hum and you need to be right next to it to hear any noise at all.

    I purchased the cooler a couple months ago and it maintains the temperature and is very quiet. Be sure to follow the instructions and keep upright during transport and allow to settle before plugging in. I like that the shelves allow for a variety of bottle diameters.

    This wine cooler meets the size and specifications that I am looking for. The 29 bottle compartment is just right. The noise level, when its humming from time to time, is very negligible that I don't even notice it. This purchase is one of my best this year.

    I thot it was a great deal for the price. I’ve had it for a few weeks. It’s starting to freeze up in the back wall. Even tho it’s not getting that cold for some strange reason ice on back wall? I’m going to keep it for as long as I can it fits perfect in my kitchen.

    This is a replacement for a thermo-electric wine cooler that died. It works way better than its predecessor -- much quieter, better and constant temperature, adaptability to wine bottles of different sizes. Excellent value for money.

    When we remodeled out kitchen, we created a space, under the counters, and between two cabinets for a wine refrigerator. This item fits perfectly in the space, and gives easy access to wine for cooking and consumption in the kitchen.

    We were having trouble finding a wine refrigerator that was the right size and a reasonable cost. This one fits the bill on both fronts. The first one that was delivered was damaged and loud. But we were able to get it replaced quickly and the noise levels are good.

    Solidly built and relatively quiet. I use it to store my Aussie collection long-term, so I do not open the door often and this it does not need to run that often. Very nice design and the price was really great!

    This is a nice , small sized wine fridge. It only has one zone for storage so if you want a dual zone for reds and white this one ins't for you. So far it keeps consistent temps. I would buy it again without hesitation.

    Highly recommend this wine fridge, especially at the price point. I ordered my first fridge at a similar price from Amazon and returned it due to the poor overall quality... I wish I bought this one first!
