This is my 2nd Avanti cooler, replacing a comparable model I purchased in 2012. I was initially disappointed with this one as they clearly cut corners here and there to maintain same price point and keep their margins. I'd personally rather pay more and get better quality. It's quiet, nice and compact and holds the temperature. It does what it needs to do. But my past experience is you have to keep the back dust free. The prior model had screens/filters over the fan openings in the back to minimize dust getting into the unit. This one does not. The overall interior and handle is made of cheaper plastic now. Not solid. But b/c it's a bit flimsy and plastic you can shove in a bottle that might be a bit larger and make it fit. My last unit made it 4 years (after replacing the first one under warranty). Hoping to at least get another 3 yrs out of this one. Advice: keep it well ventilated and free of dust/lint. I used canned air to blow out the dust. Open up the back to clean it out every 4-6 mths.
