4.0 out of 5 stars Great product, great price October 18, 2010
By Jane G

Ordered this product from Amazon when it returned to stock -- price for product with prime shipping (free) plus add-on overnight shipping was under $200.00. Arrived before noon the next day. A great deal.

Unpacked and set-up in family room -- took 30 minutes to cool to 58 for red wine (I have a 16-bottle unit that has my whites stored). I've had the unit for four days and it's doing what it should. No sound and temperature on display verified with thermometer placed in unit for two days.

A great thing about the product is that if you would like to upgrade the look of the unit with wood shelves they are available for separate purchase on Amazon. As previous reviewer, I think it looks nice as is once the wine bottles are loaded.

Please note that the included instruction book says to level unit that all legs adjust -- however, only the leg under the hinge adjusts (not really a problem).

The only "complaint" with the unit is that, like all the other units I've read about, it does not hold 28 bottles if your collection includes any pinot-size bottles. The unit has slots for the shelving at other levels which is helpful to adjust, but in the end I have taken out one shelf (half of my wines are in pinot-style bottles). I have a few small bottles that I've been able to add on top of the pinot. I would say that even with the lower capacity this is still a great deal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Affordable and functional October 1, 2010
We purchased the Whynter 28 bottle wine cooler to start our small mid-range collection. From what I have gathered, the no-vibration thermoelectric wine coolers are much more gentle on your wine and easily hit the required temp range. The Whynter unit appeared to be a nice looking unit and had the capacity we were looking for.

We received the product in a much quicker timeframe than we expected. It was a no fuss setup and looked really high-end when we had our bottles in the unit. Couldn't be happier on the price too. Depending on where you situate the unit, it takes less than 25-30 mins to get the internal temperature to an ideal 58F for my reds. The door lock was also a nice bonus, especially with teens at home =)

Very pleased with everything about this purchase. Thanks again for a great shopping experience.

Fast exchange after first one was damaged. All paper work was taken care of by Amazon, great. Cooler is just what we were looking for. Looks super next to our bar in living room. Worth the price and than some, good value for the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Buy November 8, 2012
Verified Purchase
I bought the 28 bottle Whynter wine cooler on September 2nd and am very happy with it. It is a great wine cooler for this price range. I have not had any problems with it, and it does not sound overly loud as other reviews seemed to indicate. It is a tight fit for the wine bottles as indicated in previous reviews but I was aware of this problem from previous reviews so was not surprised.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works beautifully for a nice price July 31, 2011
By ShaunM
Whynter WC28S SNO 28 Bottle Wine Cooler, Platinum with Lock

The wife got this for me on a whim. I wanted a small wine cooler that I didn't have to worry too much about. This fit the bill. Thermoelectrics are well worth it in my opinion. I refuse to spend mega bucks on a wine cooler when all I want is something that will keep my small starter collection in fine drinking condition. Nice exterior, the door which is not steel, looks great anyway. Cools down to around high 40's which is what I want. This is not fancy but it does what it's supposed to. If you want the works, go buy a U-line or Liebherr. I'm personally satisfied with this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great cooler February 22, 2013
Verified Purchase
A couple of things to note. The cooler, as with all this style, makes some noise and is not silent. About as much noise as a quite Desktop computer. I did not put the handle on mine, and really like it that way, it makes for a clean look, and then it doesn't stick out to catch you every time you walk by it. Works well, and looks nice....... Don't forget to vacuum the filter once and a while. that is what burn up my old one.
