We only had this a few weeks, but so far, it is exactly what we wanted, it keeps the contents COLD (34 at the bottom for pop and beer, and 40 at the top for wine). Other small refridgerators we tried only kept things mildly cool (37-45). It looks great in our bar and the light can be on or off. It runs occasionally but is very quiet. It was so much more reasonably priced on Overstock than anywhere else online.
