Overall we are pleased with this wine cooler - it looks nice and keeps our wine cool. Then reds section is quite small and is somewhat obstructed by the temperature panel - I don't think you can fit more than 2 bottles on the top rack (and there are only 2 shelves in the red section). The white section is larger, so if you are a fan of whites you are in luck. It's a nice and compact wine cooler which was perfect for the small space we had available, and we think it looks great. We have been using it for about a month, so I can't comment in longevity yet, but so far it seems like a good buy.
At 280+ pounds, this thing took three guys to bring into the house. It's big, it's cold, and gets the job done (note: I've only had it two weeks). The racks may seem a bit flimsy, but certainly strong enough to pull out, then go hands free to review what bottles are there until you slide 'em back. There is a shelf-stop to prevent the shelf from being pulled all the way out inadvertently. The light doesn't light up the whole fridge, barely the top shelf but I have a light in my pantry to take care of that. Of course it won't hold 166 bottles if you plan on storing champagne, pinot noir, or other large bottles (you have to remove a shelf for that which is easy enough) but that's one reason I wanted a higher capacity fridge - offering more wiggle room to handle the various shaped bottles. Timely delivery, arrived undamaged, looks good, runs quiet, and stores a good amount of wine. If it lasts as long as my smaller one has, it's well worth the purchase.
Can't say enough good things about this cooler. The unit arrived quickly and only very minor damage (not caused by shipment). Very small dent in the door and a small defect in the control panel mounting screw hole. But barely worth noting. The unit is constructed very well and with quality materials. The shelving works just fine but be careful to note the number of bottles that fit in each cooling zone. There is more capacity in the warmer zone the cooler zone. The unit runs just fine. Very quiet in my opinion and holds the cool air very well so compressor doesn't need to run that much. I did my research and have to agree that this unit aligns with a top notch rating.
I purchased (2) of the 12 bottle wine chillers and am VERY happy! One for our home, one for a friend. We both agree that the taller, slim style is best. There is enough room between door and rack to store open bottles with a cork in them. It is very quiet and the temp is accurate. I do bump the touch controls on occasion due to their placement at the top of the door frame, but f you use the door handle that can be avoided. It's been about 2 months and so far so good. I may pick up a couple more for xmas gifts!
