    Great product - serves its purpose well!

    This is a perfect smaller wine fridge, purchased as a gift. Was looking for something small enough for counter top use and this actually worked great (tight fit but it worked). It's very quiet and is just right for keeping a reasonable number of bottles ready for drinking. Currently using it only for reds, at about 58 degrees. Non-fridge storage is fine for our larger collection (kept out of bright light and fluctuating temps), and then we cycle bottles into this for a few degrees cooler storage in preparation for drinking. The only complaint is the little light inside is weak. Not a big deal at all but even in a dark room, when you turn the light on it does very little beyond the middle of the top row, not practical or even aesthetically nice. Again - no big deal at all but would be better with something maybe like a strip light around the window of the door or in the back that could light up the entire inside a little better for nicer viewing inside.

    Small but works

    Pros: -Small in size -Cost -Shelves are removable -Light to carry -Uses about $3 electricity a month Cons: -Also small in size (see below for bottle sizes) -Fan on back always runs A few points to make on this cooler. -It is only a wine cooler so the temperature does not get that low -750 ml bottles fit great -1 ltr bottles are a tight squeeze -The light when turned on in a dark room looks cool I use this for liquor bottles and it does what I want. This will not replace a refrig as it is only a "cooler" Review your needs on how cold you want your drink to ensure this will meet your needs.

    Functional but cheap made

    I love the size, the design and the functions of this cooler but as much as I want to keep it, I've decided to return it and look for something else. The first one came dented and the bottom of the cooler has excessive dried glue all over so I have to return and reorder another one for shipping. The second one has no dent, but the bottom still contains excessive dried glue, making me to believe its QC has failed. Having 2 units with the same issue I worried the longevity of the unit. I've decided to look for something else.

    Not to large and holds temp well.

    I actually bought this to store some medication rather than wine. The temperature in the un-air conditioned apartment got warmer than the medication was supposed to be exposed to during the day and the refrigerator temperature was colder than the minimum temperature for the meds. The wine cooler has maintained an appropriate temp and the couple of bottles of wine I have in it with the meds seem to be doing great to.

    I was looking for a small/specialized wine refridgerator and hoped that this would store my white wine bottles far cooler than my regular refridgerator. I find that it does not. It is essentially another small refridgerator and adds nothing special. The appearance is fine, the blue light looks nice ... but the bottom line is that the temperature does not appear to match the read out display (recommended 44 - 52 degree farenheit).

    Excellent little fridge for my wife's studio. She's a massage therapist and keeps bottled water for her clients but she never wanted the water too cold to put their bodies into light shock after a deep tissue massage so this is perfect! It keeps the water at a perfect temperature and all the other studio owners love it.

    Very handy and fits perfectly underneath cabinet on kitchen counter. The legs unscrew for a perfect fit. Easy to operate and although some reviews mention a humming sound I can barely hear it running. The only problem as many reviews mention is the display light. Yes. It's bright. Unfortunately no off switch or dimmer. At least it's indigo and doubles as a night light. Overall I'm happy with my purchase.

    Good Wine Fridge

    Picked up the wine fridge last night after reading positive reviews. Fridge is small but fits 8 bottles. Took a little time to get temp down to desired temp. Loved the digital temp display and the blue light. Very quiet and is smaller then our older fridge but still enough space. Would highly recommend.

    The size is perfect for on the counter or next to the refrigerator on the floor. Great to have your bottles ready for any occasion. The cabinet is sectioned for reds or whites. Easy to program. I was up and running with the wine inside in the matter of minutes. I am now considering a larger one to expand my wine collection which I will put in another location and leave the small one in the kitchen.

    Nice Wine Cooler

    I love this wine cooler! Now, I can have a cold glass of wine whenever I get ready. I don't have to wait for it to chill. It's perfect for a beginner, holds just enough. The only down fall to this cooler is that the bottom deck is designed like the others. Two bottles fit just fine, but they aren't as secure as the others and can roll.

    Does not regulate temp

    The wine cooler does not regulate temperature accurately and the coolers temperature display is also inaccurate. Temperature continuously drifts down and the temperature readout varies from 2 to 5 degrees off from the actual internal temperature. Poor quality.

    Great price and value for a guy who likes just having a few bottles of wine onhand. The lighting is cool, and it is pretty quiet. The only negative I would give it, is that I would like if the temperature guage went a little cooler that 46 degrees. I like my white wines for summer chilled cooler than that for hanging out on the patio.

    Good small cooler

    We were looking for a small size cooler for the kitchen, and this one fit the size requirements. Being on sale also made it fit the budget. At first it had trouble getting below 50 degrees, but by the second day it was staying in the upper 40s, even with 4 bottles inside. It runs very quietly. So far, we are pleased with the purchase.

    Good for wine cooling only, not for beverages

    It is a shame that it only cools wine. With a few more degrees lower it would be also a fridge. It is too bad since the size is perfect and it has a very attractive LED light. I had to return it since the sales rep told me it would work for soda pops as well but though they got cold, they were not cold enough.

    My husband and I bought this cooler after our previous one died. This one is nice and small, and fits perfectly in our kitchen. The digital display show us the coolers temperature, always reminding us that it's working! I like that feature. You can use it for wine, beer, or both! I highly recommend it.

    Stopped cooling after a month

    I got this cooler about a month ago. I really loved it, but just a couple days ago the temperature kept rising in it, and it would no longer cool. Every time I open the door the temperature raises about 5 degrees and won’t go down again. Very disappointing

    Wouldn't recommend at full price. -Doesn't get cold enough 46F seems to be the lowest temp which is ok, but limits what you can do with it. -Should've read reviews on tempature wouldn't of bought it otherwise. -Lights up nicely -FYI Maintains a good tempature w/ added ice pack

    I got this on sale and it is good for the price I paid. Only main issue is the wife favorite wine comes in a slightly thicker bottle and had to flip one of the shelves over to get it to fit, standard bottles fit fine. Only other thing I wish it got colder to be able to use for pop or beer.

    I wanted to buy a wine cooler for so long but could not find one that could fit my small kitchen. This Insignia wine cooler works great and most importantly looks great on my small space. Definitely recommended.

    We have had four wine coolers in the past and all died after a couple of years. The Insignia wine cooler keeps the expected temperature constant and appears to be superior to our previous coolers.
