I am a research buff and read over 300 reviews on refrigerators. I wanted one at work to keep my drinks and food cold. Many reviews stated that this unit does not get cold enough. I beg to differ. This refrigerator gets colder than I can keep it. I have to lower the temp to a lower setting so my drinks won't freeze. I really like this unit a lot. It is small enough to hide under my desk and even behind my desk in the corner. No one really knows that I have one at work. I am well pleased with this unit and the maker is a well known brand overall. Danby is the maker and I will buy another one from them soon.

This fridge didn't even last five months. Take note of the other recent negative reviews and purchase at your own peril.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful only if you know what you are getting February 5, 2011
By S. SONG

Danby may make nice refrigerators, and price-wise, their strongest competition seems to be Haier and Avanti, especially for compact fridge for use in dorm/offices.

Now, my previous personal fridge was a Haier which lasted for a good 2 1/2 years, but it suddenly died one day and I needed a quick replacement. I used it primarily for storing drinks and snacks, so I didn't need one that was "freezing" cold.

I did my fair share of research, and landed on this deal directly from amazon.
The problem with getting compact fridges shipped is the packaging. Note, this unit essentially has none, aside for a half inch thin "padding" of styrofoam on each side. It is shipped directly in its retail package, and a lot of people have noted that some shipped fridges arrive DOA due to the damage during shipping, so my suggestion is to reduce time it takes to ship as much as your budget allows. Luckily, this Danby is lightweight, and though the box look a bit beat up, the unit itself is in fine working order so far.

Another problem is the temperature. I haven't measured it directly, but it is true that it may not be cold enough for medical purposes, and anything other than storing refreshments for that matter. I expect dairy (e.g. milk) would be okay, but if opened frequently the unit seems to get warm fairly easily. It does get colder after around 24 hrs after the unit has turned on.

The inside has a strong "factory" odor to it, and it takes some time to get rid of, but not a major problem. There is also a light that comes on when the door opens, which is a plus factor.

For the price range, this makes a great personal beverage cooler which was exactly what I needed, but I suspect that it may not be cold enough for some (as others have noted). If you need a fridge that needs to be colder, look for a unit that has a small freezer section up top; they tend get much colder than this Danby. Good luck!

1.0 out of 5 stars This is NOT a Refrigerator April 23, 2012
By C
This is NOT a refrigerator in the sense that most people think of. It does not have freon or a compressor it and will not actually cool anything. It is a thermoelectric fridge and will only go 10 degrees below room temp. (Information I learned after arguing with Danby that the product was broken because it never actually got cool.) You are better of putting ice in a cooler. Do not waste your time or money if you are actually looking for a compact fridge that will keep items cool.

2.0 out of 5 stars Got to 48degrees and stayed December 4, 2010

These come in black too, wanted a black one but took the white one because I could get it from amazon and thus far I am 100% satisfied with amazon and their customer service is insanely good. Sadly the fridge was returned, it wouldn't get cold enough for our needs, 48degrees and fluxuated between 47 and 48, we needed it as a baby formula preservation system in our nursery, just isnt cold enough for that, or anything else I can think of needing a fridge for.

Door gasket was defective and it had to be returned. Quality seems cheesy and I'll replace it with another brand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still going Strong! December 7, 2010
By DMG
I've had my Danby for almost 9 years now and through several moves from office to office it's still going strong. I highly recommend this make and for the price it can't be beat.

1.0 out of 5 stars Does not refrigerate March 6, 2012
Verified Purchase
Bought this b/c it was cheap. Now I know why. Does not keep things cold, not even cool. Has a very bad stale smell that just wont go away. No matter what the setting is, it just want keep cold. Not worth the money. Going to try to contact the company and see if I can get my money back.
