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. It would not cool down to its lower range except in the winter months (I live in Florida), and -- compared to this Haier cellar, it was rather noisy. Careful with purchasing wine coolers in this price range from said vendor. Now back to the unit in question ...
The digital temperature readouts are blue, and are soothing to look at. The interior light is nice, although it does not shine on the lower compartment (for white wines) very well. As I said, even though the circuitry is very similar, the Performance of this unit is Much, much better. I have had the unit for a month and a half now. It has a year's warranty, and a clear, simple instruction manual. I don't recall where the unit was made at this moment. I believe it was either Mexico, or Malaysia. I will confirm that later. Overall, Im pleased with this wine cellar, and relieved that it has met my strict expectations ...
Hope this review is of help to you.
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. Being able to store reds and whites in such close proximity but at equally well-adjusted temperatures is wonderful when hosting guests since our unit is in reaching-distance of the dining table (the Cuisinart was a bit of an eye sore, so we had to hide it in the pantry, but the Haier looks nice enough to keep out in the open).
The front panel does tend to collect fingerprints, especially since it is glossy black, but this is a payoff with all shiny-black products and not unique to the Haier wine fridge. The unit is easy to clean and does not require any special cleaning needs.
The unit is still deserving my 5-star rating at this point. I will update the review, should any issues arise.
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).
