The unit arrived and was easy to unpack and set up to include the simple installation of the handle. Unit is very quiet and was at operational temperature within a couple of hours. Temperature control switch is not easy to reach when unit is full, but ,I have not had to adjust since initial start so this in a nit. Good unit overall and a very good value for the money
Dad put it to use right away. The cooler was plugged in and let to acclimate as directed, and loaded the next day. the upper racks are space-saving and hold the bottles well enough. While the bottom shelf has grooves, presumably to align the bottles, it is less stable than the aforementioned racks. Still adequate for the job as there is no real danger of losing a bottle. the only con is that the control box is at the upper right corner and butts up against the bottle placed there. (While the door will close just fine, it seemed to bother Dad enough that he chose not to place a bottle in that slot. This is really a minor issue as i pointed out that the bottle will seat well enough in that slot that the door/glass will NEVER touch it or rub for that matter. That said , it is safe to say this is a fifteen (15) plus-one bottle cooler. Dad was also pleased with the temperature range, so overall this was a win and great gift for that discriminating wine aficionado in your circle of friends and family.
We purchased 2 and have then stacked in a corner of the dining room. They seem well designed and easy to set the temperature controls. So far we have been extremely satisfied with them.
