Customer Reviews

This compact fridge is very nice.
Ellen Ripley
He's very happy with how it works, keeps everything nice and cold and if put on the highest setting it does freeze items; for him it was water.
Shannon Cioch
I do hear a quiet "hum" from the compressor, but nothing that is annoying or too loud.

I wanted a refrigerator that would get really cold, was black and had more room than one with a freezer which I knew I would rarely use. So, based on the good reviews I purchased this Danby DAR195BL 1.8 cu.ft. All Refrigerator - Black.

This compact fridge is very nice. I wanted to mostly use it for drinks, and some lunch stuff/snacks and quick meal items like a carton of eggs, salad dressings and cheeses/luncheon meats; maybe a loaf of bread. They went in with room to spare. The slots for soda/beer cans and my once a day 9.5 oz. bottles of iced Starbuck's Frappucino are nice, everything slid in perfectly. Plus it fits a 2-liter bottle of soda in the door or a quart of milk and a quart of orange juice. Nice 11" depth on the top 2 shelves but items can overhang by another 2", so ideal for leftovers or take-out. Only the bottom shelf is shorter, about 6.5" deep. But so far great! And when you get the temperature dial just right and figure out where to put the soda cans so they get a bit of a freeze on them, you get a heavenly cold drink on a hot day.

Although you can't tell from the pictures, the top of the fridge is not just a shiny flat metal top but instead is a scratch resistant work top that overhangs the door and has a slight depression to it. This means that if you open a can of soda and accidently knock it over the liquid won't run down the sides or into the door crevices but stays on top where you can clean it up easily.

At first I wasn't sure I would be happy with those 6 can slots in the door but soon realized that other things would fit in them too.

I'd read some reviews on other sites for this model about how lots of people had to adjust the temp because their drinks were too cold (or even freezing). Since that's how cold I want my fridge to be able to cool, I bought one. The other reviews were right! The unit is advertised to keep a temp that's 40 degrees cooler than the surrounding temp. I can testify it does that and more. I have this in in an office environment at work, which is always near 70 degrees. The first time I got this fridge running it cooled down to the high 20's - my drinks were partially frozen and undrinkable. That means this fridge is capable of cooling to a little more than 40 degrees than it's surrounding temp. Perfect! I merely adjusted the temp a little so now it hovers around the low 30's. That means I can depend on my drinks being ice-cold. The knob for adjusting the temp is in the back, so it's a little hard to reach. But fortunately it's near the top, so you don't need to pull out the fridge to reach it. You just have to crouch down all the way and reach over the top.

I work in southern California where it's now in the 90's outside, so it's aweseome when I'm hot and sweaty to be able to open up my fridge and pull out an ice-cold drink. I'm actually going to buy another one for home!

The only problem I had is the first one arrived defective - didn't cool at all. The vendor arranged a UPS pick-up (fortunately I'd kept the packaging - it was dead out of the box) and within a few short days the replacement unit arrived. It's worked perfectly since.

I purchased this fridge to go in our bedroom. Sometimes at night especially in the winter with the dry heat my hubby and I get thirsty and don't want to go all the way downstairs to the kitchen to get a drink late at night. I looked a several models and reviews and decided to purchase this one in spite of the fact that some reviewers were complaining about a noise. Well unfortunately, I think I got one of those. The instructions say to let it sit at least 2 hrs after unpacking before you plug it in (I guess to make sure that the compressor oil is settled)and I let it sit for about 4 hrs. When I plugged it in, it made its normal fridge start up sounds and began cooling. It took about 3 hours to initially cool my drinks inside. I love the can holders on the door. My little 8oz drink cans fit perfectly and I was also able to put 12 19.9oz bottles of water inside. The noise happens when it cycles on and off to cool. I was ok the first night, but by the second day it began to also whistle (I guess this was the airplane noise customers described) while it was on and it got louder and very annoying. It cools great but neither my husband or myself could sleep that night because it was so annoying therfore, I had to send it back. I don't think I want to try another one at this point to see if it works better, I'm just going to try another type I was also looking at.

I bought this model based on Musicdex's recommendation above. Everything (s)he says is right on the mark. I've had food freeze in this fridge, so it probably can keep a frozen entree frozen or pretty darn close.

It's also very quiet. I have it under my desk at work, where I'm in an equally quiet area of the office. Love it, love it, love it.

Updated 11/2/14: This little refrigerator has been running faithfully for 3+ years. I purchased it in June 2011 and am pleased with how well it maintains its temperature. I selected this unit because it uses a compressor rather than semiconductor technology which, from what I've read, is not recommended for ambient temperatures >77 degrees. This refrigerator can really get cold: My room is 80 degrees now and I have the temperature dial set to the halfway point just to keep items in the door from freezing solid.

This unit has two shelves and a "can rack" in the door. The top shelf at its highest setting is just high enough for a carton of eggs and deep enough for two cartons. A portion of the bottom is sacrificed to the compressor in the back but, overall, this refrigerator can hold a lot. The can rack can be used for condiments, yogurt, etc. And the space in the door next to the rack will hold two quart-sized milk/juice boxes. Just be careful not to block the vents in the back of the compartment because the back wall will ice up and the refrigerator will shut itself off. This happened to me but, once I unplugged it and let it thaw out and then plugged it back in, it came back on.

Pros:
- COLD.
- Energy Star. Economical to run.
- Nice unobtrusive black finish.
- Efficient use of interior space.
- Compressor cooling.

Cons:
- Not loud, but may be a little noisier (because of the compressor).

I am pleased with this refrigerator and recommend it highly.
