    Got it Replaced

    I ordered this small fridge in April, it was on backorder so I didn't get it until May. I ordered it for my new home that i was moving to in early July. So i didn't even open the fridge until about 4-6 weeks after i received it. Then I moved many states away... Once I opened it and put it in my studio, which is not air-conditioned, but also not extremely hot... I noticed that it wasn't really getting cold, the temperature on the digital reading said 33 degrees but there is no way that the temperature was 33 inside of the cooler. The drinks were mild but not cold. We gave the fridge a couple of weeks and unplugged it multiple times to give it a reboot not still not cold. This is where it gets interesting. My husband called Best Buy and told him the issue. The purchase date was now at least 6 weeks from the time we were calling. They said that I could return it and have a visit with the geek squad. We told Best Buy that we live in a rural area and that a Best Buy location is very far and really not an option for us. We also told them that we threw away the packaging because once we opened the fridge we thought everything would be fine. They then offered to give us $150 gift card to Best Buy to buy something else or send us a totally new refrigerator for free. And mentioned that we didn't have to return the bad refrigerator. We still want this cute refrigerator so we got the replacement and this one works fantastically! The customer service was wonderful and the fridge is everything I hoped for, very cold, definitely 33°, has a quiet-quiet hunm when it needs to cool itself down and definitely does not distract with noise at all. I would recommend this fridge to anyone and everyone. Thank you BB for taking care of us!

    Does not get cold enough.

    This compact refrigerator gets high marks in the looks department. The stainless steel and glass door look nice and the interior LED lighting is a nice touch also. But I should have known that this would not live up to expectations when I opened it and saw that getting 48 cans inside would be a stretch. You can put 36 cans inside easily, but those last 12 you'll have to be creative to work them into the available space. But that really isn't my beef with the unit. I could live with less capacity if the unit actually cooled to the temperature you set it for. I put 36 cans inside along with a thermometer after setting it up. It will not cool below 42 degrees F despite having it set for 33 degrees F and not opening it for several days. The drinks are cold, but not cold enough. I like mine just on the verge of freezing. One of the reasons I chose this unit is because you could dial in the exact temperature. But because this feature does not work, I'm taking the unit back. There is nothing more disappointing than wanting that ice cold beverage at the end of a hard day and only getting a mildly cold one instead.

    Nice little refrigerator

    So, most people are interested in how cold this thing really gets. I keep it set to 33 degrees, and using a digital thermometer, sure enough, at the back wall of the unit it gets to 34 degrees. But, at the front of the unit where easily-reachable displayed drinks may be (with drinks stacked behind it), its around 40 degrees, which is still cold and refreshing to me. This is in a room that is generally in the mid 70s. I think that's just the nature of these small refrigerators. I'm not a quiet freak, but I have not noticed any noise issues. As with these refrigerators, realistic usable capacity is a somewhat lower than advertised - maybe 20-24 cans on top and 10-12 cans on bottom (if removing the wire bottle rack) would be the ideal arrangement.

    Some people say it is noisy. I can sometimes hear it a little, but it is way quieter than my previous unit. I had one of those 3-foot tall or so units with a mini freezer. I specifically wanted a smaller, quieter unit with NO freezer. The mini freezers are not frost free so you have to defrost them. I have no idea if it will really hold 48 cans or not. Other people complain saying it won't hold that many. But, since I only put a 12-pack or so in it at a time, it works perfect. Some people complain it doesn't get cold. Maybe they over fill it. It is cold to me with only a 12-pack in it.

    Works Perfectly for keeping beverages cold!

    I read the reviews before I purchased this beverage cooler. I was a bit concerned because one of the reviewers said it didn't keep the soda's cold enough. I've never had that problem. Granted I have it dialed down to 33 degrees, which is it's lowest setting. I've never had a problem with pulling out a cold refreshing soft drink. The only complaint I would have is I have no idea how they fit 48 cans inside it. I think it can be done, but it might be cumbersome to pull 1 out. Over all I love the product & I'm so thrilled I purchased it.

    This cooler is awesome. It looks great in my movie room. I keep full-size and mini bottles in it. It's on the lowest temperature of 33 degrees and it's cold enough for me. I would recommend it. Just make sure a new one is delivered to you. Initially, they delivered a used one with soda stains and dents. I was very upset and returned it to a nearby store. I had the second one delivered to the store so that I could inspect it there. The second one was new and works great. It also comes with an interior light.

    I have the larger 115 can cooler and I was really happy with it soo needed one at work and decided to get the smaller 48 can model and I have been really disappointed in it. It doesn’t keep the cans cold enough. I have it set to 33 degrees but the cans are not even close to that. It’s not opened very often so it shouldn’t have a problem keeping up with the temp.

    This a nice small cooler. I can fit 2 six packs of beer cans or bottles plus water and other drinks. The racks can be moved for your needs. The lighting is nice and the see through door is a big plus. My only complaint is that I have it on the lowest temp which is 33 degrees but the temp only gets down to about 44 degrees. Cold enough. This is a nice small cooler.

    Loved the refrigerator. I looked at several different places and the prices and warranty didn't compare anywhere. I did tons of research and checked multiple places from home depot to sams club to costco. Nothing compares especially with the warranty! I suggest walking in to see the fridge in person and asking all your questions on the warranty. !

    It does not quite hold 48 cans, but I can get about 40 in there. It keeps them cold, not quite 33 degrees unless they're alone in the back, but what do you really expect if you know anything g about thermodynamics. I like the stainless steel. The door is reversible, but it's a pain. The glass is a nice touch. It feel luxury without a luxury price. I do not regret my purchase.

    I read the reviews and took note of the cons. After setting up my new unit as instructed, I was happy to find everything working as advertised. Perfect operation first time. I keep it at 36 deg and have had cold beverages for 2 weeks now at a great drinking temperature. The compressor noise is undetectable most the time and makes an occasional low hum when it kicks in for a few minutes.

    Nice Looking Fridge, But...

    48 cans is a REACH. Maybe with the shelving and lower bracket removed it might be possible... but typically not a chance. Looks great though and the digital temp setting is nice. Just wish the light had a setting to come on when the door was opened as opposed to just on all the time or off all the time.

    Great fridge for my office, but after purchasing and plugging in there is a swamp type smell every time you open the door. The fridge was cleaned before use. Returned once and purchased again only to find the same thing happening. Now I have to return in store again.

    Disappointing

    My disappointment had nothing to do with the quality of the product; it appeared impressive and to be just what I'd anticipated--except for it's size. I had to return it because it didn't fit the available space on my kitchen countertop. I thought I'd measured carefully before placing the order, but it proved to be too tall to fit.

    Needed a small fridge to fit inside an IKEA cabinet for our office beverage center. This worked perfectly. Fridge arrived in great packaging. No damages. Turned on fridge and it was cold within a few hours and chilled all of the drinks we put in there. Drinks stay very cold even with a full fridge. I recoomend this product!

    This fridge works well out of the box. However, it came with some sizable dents in the back of the fridge. It worked and I didn't feel it was worth my time to try and exchange it. That was disappointing but if I really cared I'm sure Best Buy would have replaced my unit.

    Our Auxiliary Beverage Cooker or ABC as it’s called here, is a welcome addition to the kitchen. The main refrigerator door stays closed way more as the ABC’s glass door satisfies the thirty curiosity of the family, who can make an “informed” selection before opening the door!

    I have a nicely decked out game room with LEDs everywhere and this is the perfect size and look. It holds just enough stuff that the kids don't have to run downstairs during a gaming session. Try to wait for it to pop up on the daily deal for a sweet discount
