    Great First Wine Fridge

    I have had this wine cooler for almost a year and I cannot complain. I spent a lot of time looking up different options, knowing I wanted a dual zone fridge, knowing I wanted thermoelectric as opposed to compression. Based on how picky I was, and on a limited budget, I found this one. I wanted the thermoelectric since compression works like an actual refrigerator and this causes vibrations, which is ultimately bad for your wine. I was worried that it wouldn't keep my whites as cool (since it is based on how hot or cool the space you set it up in) but, I keep them at a brisk 45 F with an ambient temp of anywhere from 72-80 F and it does just fine. I will say that enough condensation does build up in both compartments and I will have to wipe up the puddles that accumulate but, that's every few months or so. I wanted to have a smaller one so it wouldn't take up as much space in my kitchen and in case I moved, it would fit easier in a different house. I will say, I wish I had gotten a larger one. I can only store 6 whites at a time and in the summer, I drink a lot of white. The drawers are metal and will be difficult to pull out and push back in. The inside is just plastic so you can see where the metal has chewed away at it. It's more of just an annoyance than a huge deal to me though. I am also only capable of storing typical sized 750 mL bottles. I would buy it again, just in the next size up.

    Buy at your own risk.

    It LOOKS nice, and worked for a year. Then the main power control board and cooling system failed. Now it's a $300+ wine WARMER! Whynter was as helpful as I expected, offering to let me ship it across the country so I could pay them to fix it. Or point me in the direction of the parts so I could fix it myself. Maybe some people can spend $300 a year on wine coolers, not me! Just don't believe them when they say this thing is "long-lasting"!

    Less quality than expected

    Disappointed in my purchase based on the quality of the design and its early performance. While assembly is easy, connect the door handles, the holes through the door to the handle holes do not align properly. In addition, in order to tighten the screws, you have to fight to keep from damaging the interior plastic seal near the holes. The shelves do not slide properly or smoothly one you place wine bottles on them. I certainly expected better for the price!

    Stopped Working After 2 Years

    I really enjoyed this cooler when I bought it. I was wary of the other reviews that stated it stopped working after a year. Mine ended up lasting just over 2 years. The top compartment will not get colder than 12C. So, basically, I have one large red wine cooler instead of a dual temperature zone for both white and red.

    Wine racks could be stronger but it does hold 21 bottles. Nice looking with two comparments for red and white wine. Temperature on white wine sedtion doesn't hold to set temp.

    Unit quality was as expected and quieter than expected. Would have given 5 stars but sliding shelves fight you a little! Overall I would buy again.

    Nice cooler for the price, and cools down very quickly. Just don't like that it only fits smaller size bottles of wine and not the larger bottles.

    I thought it would be a little bigger than it was, but it's OK for the money.
