5.0 out of 5 stars Toasting Strong Out Of The Box February 3, 2013
Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exceeding expectations! January 31, 2013
Verified Purchase
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars It's not silent ... not even quiet. June 18, 2012
The "silent" and "ultra quiet" claims from Wine Enthusiast are completely bogus.

I bought one of these to fit in a smallspace in our living room, but can't use it there because the 'silent' fridge is so loud that it would be very distracting when we are watching TV - it's that loud.

Now I have it inside a closet (with the closet door closed) over 50 feet away from the living room - and yet we can still occasionally hear it.

BTW, I also contacted WineEnthusiast customer support online, and recieved an email from them promissing a response within 2 working days. That was several weeks ago, and despite several follow-up emails to them I got no response at all (and yes, I checked my spam filters). I finally contacted them by phone and asked why I had recieved no response - no explanation given, and no apology for being utterly unresponsive.

Silent my foot... don't believe the hype.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value for the price February 19, 2013
Verified Purchase
I bought this as a replacement for a Haier unit that broke after about 12 months.

Overall it is highly recommended for the price and size. I don't find it that loud at all. It has a sleek look and the dual temperature control is intuitive and easy to adjust. It's a little on the small side, obviously, as it only holds about 18 bottles. But you knew that, since, you know, it's in the title of the product.

I did have an issue with the leveling legs upon installation. The front leg wasn't adjustable so the unit was wobbly. Have to give props to Wine Enthusiast here - I contacted their customer support and within 2 days they sent me a replacement part free of charge the fixed the issue.

So, for under $250 or so, you can't do much better than this unit.

Deceptive description. This is NOT a Wine Refrigerator. It is a thermoelectric cooler.

Keeps the dual temperatures quite well and isn't too noisy (contrary to some of the other reviews). All things considered, solid purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Correction to previous review
The problem with only cooling to 54 degrees was caused by a power failure. The unit has to be reset when this happens. Everything is working as advertised.
