I've had this wine cooler for a couple of months now. Overall, it does the job it was intended to do. I keep both red and white wines in it, by keeping the temperature at 56F. That's borderline low for red, and borderline high for white, so it's not perfect. But, I was prepared for that because it is a single-zone cooler after all.

My wife and I don't drink that much wine (2 bottles a week, more if we have guests over). I had planned to purchase a second unit, so that we'd have one for red wines, and a separate one for white wines. But, we're happy with the borderline temperature setting so far.

The spacing of the metal racks is barely sufficient for regular-size bottles. We have problems with any wine bottles that are wider or taller than usual, even if they are 750 ml. We end up having to use the space with no racks in order to stack wide bottles directly on top of each other. We can't place any of the longer-necked bottles (some white wines are like that).

My biggest complaint is the fan. It's a lot noisier than I thought, and it seems to cycle on and off very frequently (much noisier and more frequent than our ref). When the house is quiet, it can be disturbing. I have no idea if this cycling will reduce the lifespan of the product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great cooler, love the vertical feature December 30, 2012
By linnale
After doing ALOT of research on wine coolers in all price ranges, I finally chose this one because of the ability to store opened wines upright. This was one of the few in all price ranges that had this feature and its a GREAT feature, and its eye appealing. I have had the cooler for a week now. I drink mostly white, some red wines, and I buy a variety of wines, mostly from grocery stores and some wine places, so the bottles are always different and different sizes. I have 12 different bottles of wine in there right now and they all fit just fine. Obviously you can't get a supersized bottle of wine in there. As for the sound everyone complains about, it is not bad, I have it in my kitchen and when it runs (it doesn't run all the time) I can hear it, but its not any different than the fridge running. I guess keep that in mind if you want it in your living room. The only downfall is the display light, it looks GREAT when its on, but it has a default shut off after 10 minutes. It would be nice if it could stay on longer than that, and its not something you can adjust. The convexity of the front glass and the digital read is very classy and I absolutely love this unit! I keep mine at 50* for my white wines, and it works great. I put this unit underneath a counter, but you have to make sure you have ample room on each side and above for it to vent. It does put out some heat when it runs. I have 4-5 inches on each side, including in the back. I would not recommend for a tightly enclosed space.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally - open bottles can be kept chilled August 9, 2011
Verified Purchase
The only thing missing is a two zone capability to keep whites and reds at different temps. At the low price I paid - guess I could buy another one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Acceptable Wine Cooler October 18, 2010
By Jerry
Verified Purchase
This cooler is okay. It does the job. It's attractive, quiet, inexpensive, with easy to operate controls. The only problem: setting the display at 60 degrees yields a temperature of 66 degrees. No big deal, just allow for the 6 degree differential at all degree settings. Also being able to place 4 bottles vertical is a nice feature.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice if you aren't noise sensitive July 22, 2012
Verified Purchase
Initially, I loved this product and would have given it 5 stars. It does everything that I wanted and I particularly like the ability to store opened bottles standing up. Unfortunately, it is loud. I bought it to install inside a wooden bar, which apparently amplifies the noise. At night, I can hear it two rooms away. Taking it out of the bar makes it usable, but still VERY noticeable in the same room. It's a potentially great product marred by one glaring design flaw.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Unit w/Verticle and Horizontal Storage January 2, 2012
By M. Getz
Verified Purchase
Bought this as a Christmas gift for my wife. What really sold me on this unit was the ability to store a couple of bottles upright. No more half corked bottles leaning from shelves in the refrigerator! The unit arrived quickly and very well packed with orignal box in another box with foam inserts. The unit set-up quickly and over the the week has performed well. One small negative is that the controls have a lock out feature that also works on the interior light. You have to push both temperature control switches for three secounds and then push the light switch to get the light to come on. A very small bother. The size of the unit didn't lend itself to a counter top and it can't be mounted inside a cabinet due to the 5" of clear space required around the unit for air circulation. I ended up placing in the pantry. It does put out more heat than you would expect but doesn't seem to be an issue. I haven't noticed the noise mentioned in other reviews but again it is in a pantry. Overall after a week we are very satisfied with the unit and the only things that keeps it from getting 5 stars is the light switch and the location restrictions (needing 5" of space around unit).

4.0 out of 5 stars does a good job. March 6, 2012
By Timster
Verified Purchase
The Avanti is a replacement cooler. So far so good. It seems to maintain temps very well and it's an attractive unit. The temperature control and display are on the front and easy to read.

I wouldn't recommend this cooler if noise is an issue. It's a bit noisey when the motor is running. For me that's not a problem bacause it's in a side room. Otherwise I'm pleased with this cooler.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for Pinots.
Works great, my only complaint is that it does not fit Pinot shaped wine bottles. Anything with a larger base will fit awkwardly.
