My friends:

I am a very busy person and, although I'm a fervent believer in sharing and reviewing with other consumers, I don't get around to doing so as much as I would like. This time, I forced myself to do this. Throughout the years shopping at Amazon, I have come to rely on people like you to provide their honest, unbiased feedback on products, which products I will either purchase or not based on the information provided.

So here it is ... this wine cellar arrives in a well-packaged, cushioned box (this is always a good sign for me!); none of those shabby, flimsy boxes that are barely held together by plastic tie raps, and with Chinese characters and markings from all over the planet ...

The tinted glass w/ black trim and black cabinet makes for a very elegant look, conveying a more expensive, refined appearance that belies its price. This unit is truly quiet, and quick to respond to room temperature changes, or user settings. The 12-bottle capacity (6 and 6) is really adequate for me, and I think for most people other than the well-to-do rich and shameless or oenophiles. One of the nicest features, which I did not have in my last wine cooler, is the dual zone compartments with different temperature ranges each to accommodate reds and whites. The unit is fairly light weight, and has sub-minimal vibration. The electronics in the back look very similar to the pcba (printed circuit board) in my last wine cooler that I purchased from Wine Enthusiast much to my regret later. Said unit was supposedly rated best by the wine experts at the Wall Street Journal. I relied on their advice, unfortunately, and had all kinds of issues with the unit.

I bought this Haier wine cellar after my Cuisinart broke just one year into its use (it was a wedding gift and otherwise would not have been our first choice). As soon as you unpack the product, the Haier wine cellar looks and sounds a lot more "clean cut" than the Cuisinart, with a sleek black exterior, more pronounced lighting, and a quieter cooling system. Overall the impression is of a well designed product. The unit is very easy to use, I only read the manual to make sure I kept the appropriate distance from walls. One caveat for all potential buyers to know is the fact that this is not designed to be a built-in unit! So make sure you have free standing space. I will update this review after a few weeks of use, but thus far I am very happy with the product, especially considering the price.

Update -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's been almost two weeks now since I received this unit, and I am still very impressed. The fan is very quiet and does not disturb me at all. I wonder if users who report loud fan noises either have a defective unit, or a fan with lots of dust collected around it. I've had my A/C malfunction for two days and the unit did not become any louder than before while still cooling the wine to the indicated temperature.
The full beauty of having a wine fridge with two different temperature zones became apparent when we bought a mixed crate of wine.

Received our cooler over a week ago. The unit ships well packaged... both in the factory box (styrofoam padding) and an outer box with thick bubble wrap. We set the cooler up in our dining room, and are pleased with the aesthetics of the design. Further, we were surprised at how quickly it cooled down to the set temperatures, but then we only loaded two bottles in each of the zones (we added more bottle over the course of several days).

Sound level - no problem with our cooler. The only sound is that made by the fans, which I would describe as similar to computer fans if not less. This model uses a thermal electric cooler, which means there is no compressor, and thus no compressor sounds.

A note about thermal electric cooling - the cold temperatures that may be obtained are based on ambient room temperature. Performance will suffer if you plan on placing the unit in a warm/hot room. From the manual... For this model, when the ambient temperature is 77, the lowest temperature that can be reached is 50 - 52. When the ambient temperature is 73, the cabinet can reach approximately 46-48.

I placed this unit at 4 stars. The only knock is for performance in warm rooms, and the fact that the descriptions do not state these factors (important to know before making the purchase).

I purchased this wine cooler after much research. 1 month - and the inevitable, even more thorough, post-purchase search for what I should have bought instead - later, I am extremely happy my dollar settled here. It's understated class draws many compliments and the dual zone capability enables preparation for any calling. Obviously it lacks the volume to store bottles for aging, but without humidity control that's not the point. As a counter top convenience I have yet to find a better option. I highly recommend this 'cellar' to anyone reading who needs convincing. It will not disappoint. Though if you're thinking about sliding it under a cupboard, be aware the dimensions may need to be updated. The unit I received is actually 10" wide X 20" deep X 26" high, and the manual recommends a couple inches of clearance.
