I am aware of the number of negative reviews on this and other brands of the same product so the reading was carefully done and it came down to this one after about three days of examining various remarks on different sites. It's not easy picking one because these wine refrigs come across as sensitive and not really durable or built for longevity. Once I subtracted the extraordinary negative reviews for the different brands, which must come from competitors, and try to estimate how many dumbazzes do not treat the appliance properly during set up, then I got the percentage of reviews I needed to determine who prevailed. Cost, design, and features then completed the selection process.

Wine Enthusiast, according to some, cannot be trusted for customer service or quality. Some of the same reasoning, however, can be found for other brands. So, I chose this one based on the design (tall and slim) so it would fit between a basement bookshelf and table, noise (it is very quiet), attractiveness in a living area (black metal with tempered glass front surrounded by stainless steel trim), and cost for the goods received (18 bottles 750ml each storage for Amazon's price proved highly desirable).

Future buyers caveat: DO NOT do anything with it until you read the small manual included which you will find inside the unit. Too many people do not understand the need for the air temp parameters in the room where it will be located, allowing the unit to reach room temp before plugging it in, keeping it upright for at least 2 hours before plugging it in (I let mine sit overnight just to be sure any lubricants in it settled properly), and positioning it where it will get the best ventilation around the the sides and back.

I spent far too many hours researching wine fridges before settling on this one. That said, calling it a "fridge" is a bit inaccurate. These "budget" units use fans and some fancy electrical stuff to create the not-so-low temperatures your wines need for proper storage. They use less electricity than a refrigerator, they are very quiet, and they don't get down to freezing temperatures.

Unlike many, however, this cooler DOES get cold enough for proper white wine storage (I have it set to 46 degrees). The dual zone function is awesome (I have my reds at 55). You get nine bottles per zone. It's very attractive, 100% silent (folks saying theirs isn't have defective units and should return), and works great. If you're on the fence, make the leap; this has taken our wine consumption to new levels (quality, not quantity).

My only complaint would be that the wire racks are a bit flimsy and the storage space is very tight, which means you won't be able to fit 18 bottles if you have anything even a little bit oversized (champagne).

Save your time and rely on my research. This is an outstanding product.

UPDATE: Dropped down to 3-stars. After a few weeks of use (no changes in the product's environment), the unit is unable to hold the correct temperature for reds. It's still rocking for my whites, but it's too cold for reds (set to 55, but it won't go above 51). Could be worse, but worth mentioning.

UPDATE #2: Back to four. We moved to a slightly cooler climate and this thing is able to hold temps like a dream. If you buy knowing what you're getting (a passive cooler that has limitations bound by physics), you won't be happier.

It works well but, as others have mentioned, it is not silent. It seems to have become louder after a week or so. Still an attractive refrigerator that fit perfectly in the spot I had in mind.

UPDATE: Worked for about a year, started to get intermittent squealing from top fan on the inside, now it's all done. Will not buy this brand again.

So far I'm incredibly satisfied with my purchase. Once the unit reached the desired temperature, it was whisper quiet. It fits bottles of differing sizes and it is aesthetically appealing.

I purchased this wine fridge about a month ago. So far it has been great. It holds 18 wine bottles, even opened bottles where I've reinserted the cork about halfway. It maintains the temperature very well between the 2 different zones and is an attractive fridge overall.
Some people have complained that the fridge is noisy, but mine has been extremely quiet. I can't even tell it's running most of the time unless I stand right next to it. Overall I am very happy with my purchase and would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a good wine fridge.

I think the other user must have a faulty machine - ours is quiet, not silent, but as quiet as a regular fridge, Biggest problem is that the kids enjoy playing with the buttons to reset the temperature... But it's still cooler than NYC in the summer. Had it 6 months and no problems at all.

I have received a lot of positive comments about this product from friends. I did have one concern with it upon removing it from the box. There is a significant sized dent on the back corner. There was no sign of damage to the box, so I'm assuming it happened before the product was packaged. Fortunately, the dented corner is out of sight because that corner of the fridge is facing a corner of the room. Other reviews commented that this wine fridge is "loud". I disagree. I'm not saying it's silent. There is a low hum when it is running, but it's hardly noticeable if you're not paying attention. If you really want something that is silent, this might not be the product for you. But enjoy spending a couple hundred dollars more on something that is silent. All in all, I would say this is a good product for the price.
