    Terrible Quality and Service

    Posted
    Fred

    I purchased this item three times. The first two times I had it shipped directly to my house. The first one had dents all over the door and the drip tray failed off as I was unboxing it. I took it back to BestBuy for an exchange. The second one arrived to my house. As I was unpacking it, the door failed off. You can clearly see the hinge was bent upward 90 degrees. I returned it back to Best Buy. In both cases the packaging box showed no signs of damage. It seems to be packaged well, double boxed. A couple weeks later, I ordered a third one. I had this one shipped to BestBuy so I could inspect it in the store and save myself the terrible of returning it to the store if it was defective. Well, when BestBuy rolled it out. It was clear they were trying to give me one of the ones I had returned. The packaging was exactly as I returned it. This was very disappointing. Shame on BestBuy! It seems the production quality of this product is going downhill. Looks like everyone that gave this product a favorable rating purchases it over a year ago.

    Purchased this beverage cooler 14 months ago and its already broke. Just two months after the warranty ran out. I have had to defrost it five times since it was new. The unit looks really great. It started off with super cold drinks and all liked it. The fridge was fairly loud from the beginning and continued to get louder until it died. Temp went to 60 and it would never shut off. I am in the process of working with the manufacture but they want me to pay to have it boxed to ship it to California via ground and if its damaged then its on me. Sounds like a one way trip for the fridge. I'm just disgusted, and will probably throw it in the landfill. I was in hopes that the manufacturer would allow a service shop in our home town to repair it. The only positive side is I didn't get one that was scratched or dented. Judging by the other reviews I was lucky.

    Runs Hot on the Sides and top

    Small dent upon receivable. Runs hot on sides and top compared to 25 yr old Montgomery Ward bar fridges that only run hot in the rear. Undecided. May keep it or return it. Called customer service gave me a credit for the dent. Have 14 days to return to get all monies back. Does make noise and a tad louder than old Montgomery Ward fridge next to it. Light is nice feature. Wire racks are professional and sturdy. Seems cold, so far. Fits under bar perfect. Hotter on left side where small top rear dent is. Looks new. Wish it vented from the front at this size. May return it though because of the heat factor and noise. Even in open air the heat factor still exists and the noise factor too. If your looking for complete quiet fridge, this is not the one. Does anyone else notice sides getting really hot?

    Great Beer Fridge

    We've had this beverage cooler for about a month now and it works perfectly. It keeps the drinks extra cold and looks great doing it. A few minor things to note.... it isn't exactly quiet. It has the slight hum of an older style fridge with a few gurgles here and there. It's certainly not unbearable but it's not as quiet as my main Bosch fridge. I'm hoping once the countertop is installed on the bar we're building it will help reduce the sound. Also, the back feet are not adjustable so I had to use shims to get it to be flush with the cabinet door panels it sits next to. In the end I'd definitely recommend it to a friend.

    Not as good as I thought

    At first I received the beverage center without a scratch. Hooked it up and let it sit for 4 days and adjusted the temp gradually. Got the temp down to 38-40 degrees according to me Taylor commercial thermometer on a 85 degree day. On cold nights about 65 degrees ambient temp, the beverage center goes down to about 35-38 degrees. On 90 degree ambient temp days it stays about 43-46 degrees. Which is ok but for beer it is on the cool side. Once it goes down to the 35 range it's perfect but that doesn't happen often. I've had it for about 3 months now. No issues besides the cooling capability and it sides alone, nothing next to it besides the back wall which is about 12 inches away. If you're looking for something to store beer, go with something like the Bud Light / Budweiser beverage center. Temperature goes down to the high 20's. Frost builds up on most beers.

    This was a terrible purchase I order this beverage cooler picked it up at the store. When we open the box the glass on the door was shattered we return it receive another one and the hinges were bent upward that when we open package the glass door almost fell over. Overall I wouldn't recommend this to anyone and also I'm not a person that writes bad reviews so for me to take the time to write this I must be really disappointed with this product.

    Watch your temperature and moderate it... had it on 5-6 and a soda can popped, gushing out as a slushie. Near the top does not get as cold as the middle, so figure out where you want the cold drinks and the not-so cold drinks placed. I filled it to the rim full of drinks. No more freezer to de-ice anymore with this one!

    This Beverage cooler does exactly what it is supposed to do, keeps the beverages cold. The LED light looks a alright, be better is the light was not top mounted and evenly distributed throughout the fridge. The fridge runs quiet and is pretty stylish with the glass door.

    Arrived with a dent in the back, surprised because it was packaged a box within a box. Looks really nice with the stainless steel finish on the front. Keeps drinks cold but the only thing I wish it did was turn the LED lights upon opening the door. You have to turn a switch to on for the light to come on. Other than the light, it would have gotten 5 stars.

    I needed a beverage cooler for our game room/bar. I tried 2 other beverage coolers before this one and neither stayed cold enough to keep my beer as cold as I wanted. I wanted one that would stay around 34 degrees. the others would only stay in the low 40's. This one does stay in the 34 to 36 degree range and keeps all our drinks nice and cold.

    After looking at all the reviews, I decided to pick it up at the store and check it out for damage. I did a quick look but should have REMOVED the plastic bag/wrapping to check it out further. It has a dented top corner that does not affect my installation but there was no box damage so this must have happened at the manufacturer. All said, it works great!

    the shelves are removable, the fridge doesn't get cold to enough for my beer. i bought a bigger one because i figured if i didn't fill it up all the way my beer on the bottom would be as cold as my fridge. not the case, it get to about 42 degrees. it is quiet and would probably be ok for water and soda.

    Just replace a small fridge with this one, I like the style and ability to see into the fridge before I open it up. Very spacious. I wished the light was auto light when you open it up it turns on. The light switch has only on or off.

    This beverage cooler is exactly what we needed for an empty space in our kitchen and looks great with our other appliances. It was a little wobbly at first because the footing needed to be leveled it out, but that was an easy fix.

    General slow to cool the cans, but its very quiet. I presume these are linked. That being said, holds a lot of cans and does the job well. We put it into the island in our kitchen.

    It keeps things cool and it looks cool. Great capacity for many different beverage container types, and excellent performance. Love the glass door so you can see what's in it before opening the door.

    It’s possible mine was an anomaly but from day 1 the coldest it got was 57 degrees so ended up hauling it back to the store to return. I exchanged it for an Insignia brand.
