This review is from: Avanti EWC1601B 16 Bottle Wine Cooler, Black, Reversible Glass Door (Misc.)
I have had this wine cooler for about 5 years now and it still is working great. Which says something about this item. I love a product that is a good price and works as described and lasts for a good long while. It keeps the wine at a perfect temperature. I only store red wine in it, so I can't speak for white wine. I like the light in it as well, which I can turn off or on. I like that the temp. is also adjustable, so I set it on a warmer setting in the winter and a little cooler in the summer. I live in a very hot summer area and sometimes I am away for a week at a time, so my home gets very warm as I leave the air conditoner off while I am gone.
I also like that this cooler is NOT a refridgerator- it does not contain freon and does not use a compressor, so it is not an energy using appliance- I never noticed a change in my electric bill, running this 24 hours a day for years.
The only negative I have seen in this item is that sometimes the fan in back is a little noisy, if you push the bottle of wine in the upper right corner too far back it jars the fan and it becomes noisy- it is random, but since I have the cooler in another room it does not bother me. Most of the time it is very quiet.
This cooler is so great for the price, I am going to buy another.

Thanks for your review. It was very helpful, however I have a little correction to make. You wrote: "I also like that this cooler is NOT a refridgerator- it does not contain freon and does not use a compressor, so it is not an energy using appliance- I never noticed a change in my electric bill, running this 24 hours a day for years."
While you're correct that this is a solid state device and does not use freon, it does use power. It's actually a less efficient technology than a refridgerator, though a fridge will spike the power when it starts and operate more noisily in general.
