Right out of the Gates, the Whynter comes out swinging with an extra 3 bottle advertised capacity, while the WE Silent 21 clocks in a bit lower. WE silent 21 also has a much larger lower deck which is good if you have more white than red wines or vice versa. The steel rack inserts on the Whynter do not accommodate larger bottles, so I removed a few, and I also experimented with using the bottom section for a beer cellar for my 700 ml craft beer bottles. Stored upright, I was able to fit 15 bottles below for an overall storage capacity in the Whynter of 27.
The Whynter is fairly boxy and slightly larger (about 1" on all dimensions) with attractive blue LED temperature indicators and touch control. The WE Silent 21 features a curved case design and more flexible storage layouts. WE Silent 21 has similar indicators and also includes the benefit of interior LED lights to help you navigate your personal wine cellar. I think the industrial designers over at WE paid a bit more attention to those little details which pushed it over the edge for me.
Winner: Wine Enthusiast
At about $80 less with more configuration options, slightly wider temperature range, and ultimately more capacity the Whynter comes out ahead as the right buy unless aesthetics and product design are a consideration...ie: if you're storing this in a prominent place or need the extra LED interior lighting.
====Temp Consistency & Energy Use====
I monitored both over a 24 hour period with an indoor ambient temperature swing between 59 degrees in the morning and 85 degrees in the house during the hottest part of the day. I noticed no fluctuation in either. Both claim 120 Volt usage, but I haven't run extensive energy efficiency tests on both units. Perhaps to come later.
Both are fairly quiet; the Whynter operates at a low periodic hum, while the WE Silent 21 is not so silent. Like other reviewers I did notice some occasional clicking/whirring sounds.
Bottom line: The WE Silent 21 is nice, and certainly prettier, but the real value lies with the Whynter which provides a bit more bang for the buck, or as we in the wine world say, "QPR" (quality price ratio).
Details on performance: The wine chiller works quite well. It is installed with more than recommended clearance on the sides and back. Used a thermometer to determine top temperature runs about 2 deg cooler than set (consistently down to 55) and bottom temperature is about 4 deg cooler than set (consistently down to about 52). I have about a 10 deg difference between the top and bottom compartments and the unit is holding this difference. Not all the shelves are exactly the same height so slightly larger bottles fit easily on the top shelf of each compartment. There is about 3/4" more room on the top shelf in the top compartment and about 1/4" more room on the top shelf in the bottom compartment.
Details on shipping woes: On arrival the interior packaging had deformed the door seal across the middle shelf. Heated this with a hair dryer and it now seals perfectly. The box looked like it had some normal wear and tear, some abrasions, one cut that went into but not through underlying styrafoam corner. Inside however there was significant dent on the right rear side and the entire back panel looked slightly askew with one screw hole being torn to the point that it looked like the screw was missing. It was still there under the back plate with now a slightly larger screw hole. Choosing to live with cosmetic issues given unit's placement. It is working quite well.
