After doing ALOT of research on wine coolers in all price ranges, I finally chose this one because of the ability to store opened wines upright. This was one of the few in all price ranges that had this feature and its a GREAT feature, and its eye appealing. I have had the cooler for a week now. I drink mostly white, some red wines, and I buy a variety of wines, mostly from grocery stores and some wine places, so the bottles are always different and different sizes. I have 12 different bottles of wine in there right now and they all fit just fine. Obviously you can't get a supersized bottle of wine in there. As for the sound everyone complains about, it is not bad, I have it in my kitchen and when it runs (it doesn't run all the time) I can hear it, but its not any different than the fridge running. I guess keep that in mind if you want it in your living room. The only downfall is the display light, it looks GREAT when its on, but it has a default shut off after 10 minutes. It would be nice if it could stay on longer than that, and its not something you can adjust. The convexity of the front glass and the digital read is very classy and I absolutely love this unit! I keep mine at 50* for my white wines, and it works great. I put this unit underneath a counter, but you have to make sure you have ample room on each side and above for it to vent. It does put out some heat when it runs. I have 4-5 inches on each side, including in the back. I would not recommend for a tightly enclosed space.

My wife and I received this item as a wedding gift and, although we are generally satisfied with some aspects of the cooler (appearance, capacity and size, and convenience) the unit itself does not maintain a stable temperature on its own (a "must have" for delicate wines and the reason we wanted a wine fridge in the first place). The unit, as I was told by a representative at the fridge's manufacturer, is an ambient room temperature-dependant machine and is only capable of cooling between 20-25 degrees of the room's temperature. What this means is that wide swings in temp (such as in an non air conditioned apartment) will result in equally dramatic swings in the fridge's internal temperature. Additionally, on a hot summer's day, I have seen the temperature swing as high as 25 degrees above the unit's set temperature. If high levels of temperature control and stability are more important to you than slick looks, small external unit size, and the convenience of being able to have wine out of your regular refrigerators, perhaps another unit would best suit your needs

Purchased this unit to replace my aging Haier on which I'd replaced the thermoelectric module in several times. Avanti makes very good products, nonetheless - when I plugged it in, I was unable to change any of the parameters (temp, wine type) on the display. No problem, a quick fix for anyone that this happens to: the top hinge has a black plastic cover. Take it off and you'll see 4 wires feeding into a black connector. Unplug the connector - doing so with the power on is OK because of the small voltage present which you cannot contact anyway because the connections are protected inside of the connector - and plug it back in. After that, snap the hinge cover back on; anyone can do this! A small "inconvenience" to make your unit function again and, it's no big deal! Sure beats having to ship it back for a replacement.
I also found out that the buttons are always locked out until you press both of the 'temp up' and 'temp down' buttons together - overlooked that in the manual.
It's June 2015 and the cabinet has performed flawlessly. VERY pleased with it especially the 4-bottle stand-up area. Finally figured that out; as you open bottles and reseal with your vacu-vin or what have you, it doesn't make sense to lay them back down, they're not going to "breathe" through those seals so, stand 'em up and they'll be ready when you are for your next glass! Neat idea?
July 12, 2016 Update - As I passed the cooler today, I noticed that the temperature displayed was 58 degrees (set on 55,) no fans running and no action from the buttons. Unplugged, left unpowered for a minute then restored power; now all is right again. Hope this was a power grid fluke, either a dip or spike. Still loving this little cooler!

I purchased this wine cooler in 2012. After about two years, the fan attached to the heatsink in the back started whining on-and-off and ultimately failed. As this happened, the wine cooler could only achieve/maintain about 10 degrees Fahrenheit below room temperature, in contrast to the 17-18 degrees Fahrenheit below room temperature it could achieve when new.

I didn't realize the fan had failed; the lack of heat dissipation caused to the Peltier element to also fail. So the cooler stopped working. I don't think that working for two years is sufficient for an item at this price point. Fortunately, thermoelectric wine coolers are easy to fix and relatively inexpensive to do so. When I took the back off and pulled the entire cooling assembly off, I discovered several things of concern.

1) The thermal paste used to attach the Peltier to the inside and outside heatsinks was of very poor quality.
2) The sealant used to seal the outside heatsink from the cabinet was of poor quality and had gaps in several locations, meaning that ambient air from the room could easily enter the cabinet - increasing the cooling demand to maintain sub-ambient temperatures.

When fixing it, I used the following components:

a) Fan - I replaced the original 90 mm fan with a 140 mm fan that pushes 60 CFM and draws 0.14A, which is about the same amp draw as the original fan. I used this CoolerMaster fan. It has a blue LED when it runs, which matches the blue LED on the display. I would have prefered a fan without an LED - but it isn't too noticeable unless the room is dark. One point of note - this is a 3-pin fan, while the wine-cooler only uses two pins.
