1.0 out of 5 stars Form over Function....and she won't last long, July 5, 2009

This review is from: NewAir AW-280E 28-Bottle Dual Zone Thermoelectric Wine Cooler (Misc.)
Let's talk about the pros and cons of this Thermoelectric Wine Cooler so you know what to expect. On the plus side- Look and Price. This cooler looks really good, especially when you turn on the small blue LED light which envelopes the interior. And the price is inexpensive in the world of thermoelectric coolers. On the con side-Function. First, it definitely is not "silent" but hums at a level that your brain will quickly assign to "background" noise. Secondly, a digital temperature readout provides a sense of satisfaction that your vino is comfortably cool. However, don't mistake this with the actual temperature inside, which will fluctuate as high as 10 degrees above readout as evidenced by an internal thermometer we placed inside. To summarize, if looks are more important to you than substance or you just need something to keep a chill on your favorite table wines, this bling is for you. Expensive wine needs another home.

Quick update as of June 6, 2011 this little gem has literally achieved room temperature. No parts available anywhere to fix the temperature control board. So, it lasted less than 2 years and I don't think I would recommend anyone purchase this unit, unless you're a big fan of planned obsolescence.
