5.0 out of 5 stars so far, so good... February 20, 2006
I bought this recently for 150 at the dept store with the 'bullseye' logo. I have the stainless steel grey and black version. So far i'm happy with it as it does get cold enough to make ice in its mini-freezer compartment, and that was when i turned the temp control to the 2/3 setting(not even the max setting!). So make no mistake, it does get cold enough to make ice. If you're looking for a mini-fridge, temporary fridge, second fridge, single-person fridge, then this seems like a great value. I've only had it for a few weeks now, so i'll update my review if anything 'majorly bad' happens in the future(trust me, i'll be upset enough to come back and write a poor follow up if this fridge starts to breakdown in any way).

Finally, the energy guide. The energy guide included with the fridge says it uses 343 of 345 kwh, and that its yearly operating costs is $28. That 343/345 is very high, but it says it is measured against other comparable fridges up to 4.4 cubic feet. This is a 4.3 cubic ft mini-fridge, so obviously it would be near the max. Other 4.3/4.4 mini-fridges use about the same amount of energy. And the Danby actually used about the same amount as a 3.3 cubic ft Avanti mini-fridge i was looking at. I don't have a bias towards one brand or the other(this ain't Ford vs Chevy, PS3 vs XBOX 360), simply just letting you know what the energy guide stats are. So compare and shop around before making a decision if this one is right for you. I have it, and think it's a good purchase(one of the biggest mini-fridges with a mini-freezer compartment!) and a good value(one of the cheapest prices for a mini-fridge).

(edit: almost 2 yrs later, still works fine. although i have to defrost a little more than i'd like to. also, you can't fit a large pizza box in this thing. just saying)

4.0 out of 5 stars Mini fridge lived up to expectation January 31, 2006
The Danby stainless steel fridge was shipped to Hawaii and was in great shape when it arrived. The unit was as expected and we were quite happy. If there was a negative, the little freezer did not keep ice cream real frozen...frozen enough but not real hard. Other than that, the unit was as expected and we would recommend the unit to any and all looking for something like this...especially because of the reasonable price both on the unit itself and the shipping charges.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome little fridge. March 16, 2008
By D. Lee
This fridge has worked perfectly for me for over a year. I only use it for holding drinks and apples and it gets plenty cold. When I first bought it I cranked it down and froze three apples. The Anti-frost button works well just be careful not to spill the water from the tray when you empty it. All in all great little fridge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for what it is September 7, 2010
Bought this 4.5 years ago as a freshman in college from the unmentionable, bulls-eye logo'd store. When I bought it, it was only 2/3 of what you can buy it now, metal prices and inflation have changed that. Still runs great in my house after 4.5 years of continuous usage. It is now used as the soda fridge in my house. Its cold enough to freeze stuff in the main compartment- i learned this the hard way (exploding soda cans and popped beer bottles). I prefer all my drinks as close to 33 Fahrenheit as possible. What I do to achieve this is start at a lower temperature, and nudge the temperature gauge up ever other day. Just remember to start this process over after defrosting, otherwise things will freeze. You can't fit a regular frozen pizza in the freezer compartment, but you can fit at least two personal-sized frozen pizza's in there. I always keep Popsicles in there, and they stay frozen just fine. Another reviewer complained that her/his ice cream is not hard enough or whatever. They probably just don't have the temp knob cold enough.

The only issue is that frost builds up in the upper compartment, so you need to defrost every year or so.
