Okay Small Wine Cabinet
on September 13, 2014
**UPDATED REVIEW DEC 28, 2015"
Been meaning to post an update for several months. Anyways, dropped the rating from 4-stars to 3. Reason being, both units have developed moisture between the panes of glass/plastic. Although I still recommend the units for their intended purchase, I must advise others of this issue. There is probably a fix for this, however I have not searched for one. Nor have I contacted the manufacturer. At the price I purchased at, they have served their purpose. If I find a remedy for this issue, I'll update the post.
**ORIGINAL REVIEW SEP 13, 2014**
Purchase two of these cabinets. One for red wine (set at 58 degrees currently), the other for whites (set at 50).
They sit next to each other on my counter top, 4-5 inches spaced off the wall, 2-3 inches apart from each other. The temperature in my house is kept typically between 78-82 degrees during the summer.
NOTE this is ABOVE the ambient temperature requirements for the units to efficiently cool to the lower end (46-52). This is not an issue for me, though it should be clearly stated. As I write this review, the one cabinet is going back and fourth between 58-59 and the other is holding steady at 53. The 53 is warmer then I'd like but again my house is really warm.
Opening the door, yes the temperature does go up quite a bit. These are small so its expected however, they do come back down to temperature pretty quick
These cabinets are close to my fridge and although you can hear the fans quite well when near them, it's not louder then when my fridge compressor comes on. Have I heard the fans turn off, no, but I wasn't expecting them too.
As a whole, I like the product, the temperature display and led interior lights are nice features. For the price, it's certainly met my expectations.
At this time I highly recommend, I will update this review in the future!
