    I've been running it for the last few weeks. So far so good. I read reviews on this product before I made my purchase. I heard that it didn't get that cold. Well, it gets cold enough. It doesn't make too much noise. Pretty quiet.

    I've had this little guy for a few months now and it works well for keeping drinks cold. I see a lot of reviews that say it doesn't work well or for very long. I have some experience with the Peliter Junction technology this frig uses. You have to be sure to leave enough space around the frig so that it can cool the heat sinks that are in the back. Keep it a least 4 inches from any walls. If the junctions overheat, you will cause them to fail prematurly. I'll bet this is what happened to most of the people who revgiewed this frig poorly. This is a new technology and people have to understand (and read the manual) that it requires a different environment. Give it plenty of cooling space and it will work as designed.

    I loved this fridge at first. I have it under my desk at work. I have had it for 2 years, now going on my 3rd summer. Until about a month ago, it kept everything very cold, and the temp maintained around 40 degrees. Lately it hasn't been any lower than 60 degrees so I don't know if something is not working right or what. I like the fact that it doesn't have a freezer to defrost like others, and the light inside is very nice since it is in a dark spot under my desk. Be sure to keep it about a foot away from the wall or it will overheat and stop cooling. I've had this happen twice, I think it just inches its way back on the tile toward the wall every time I close the door. Nice size, and was great for a couple years. I won't be storing dairy or meat in it any longer than just until lunch time anymore though...

    it's a great little fridge for a dorm or den. you can actually keep your pop too cold. read the manual and you'll find you can keep dairy and produce in there,(room temp. must be below 80). wattage use is lower than expected too. much lighter and better product than what my kids dragged to college.

    This fridge looks great, holds plenty, and keeps things nice and cold. This unit is very light in weight so I guess if you dropped it on a hard surface it might dent but I have no plans on dropping it to find out. Was surprised that it never shuts off so I called and asked the question and because it doesn't have a compressor like our big fridge it stays on all the time but it is economical and won't use up much electricity they say, you worry when it's not running as then you have a problem. Another thing is it's very quiet, I'm very please with it plus it was here in 2 days time. The only reason I didn't give it a overall 5 star is the price, I would have liked to see it lower but it was better than the others and the other thing is that it never shuts off but if that's the way they make it you can't change that. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one of these.

    Bought the fridge from walmart 37' advertised. Well yeah, if you run it empty for 6 to 10 hours. It will reach that temp. After 3 months of use it failed to reach that temp anymore. Norm temp is 55'. Not happy. Called company they are replacing it for 14.99 shipping charges. It has two cooling units and I think one of the two failed on my unit. It uses about 115 Watts while running (24-7). It is quiet, and cool to the touch. It recommends 4 inches from wall for ventilation. Even new, it took a day for the stuff to cool off to a low, nice temp. But now. Eh. It is using a new technology to cool the stuff. If I had to do it over I would go with the old style with the mini freezer on the top. You can fit 6 two litters, and about 6 slimfast size cans in it. Not to shabby on space. But the cold factor can be A LOT BETTER.. Owned for 3 1/2 months & at 55.4's Not too cool.

    I was disappointed with this product at first. I could not get my items to become cold - instead they were merely slightly colder than my room. However, after acquiring a small table and elevating the unit, it became very chilly in there - colder than my fridge at home, in fact! My unit has a dent in the side that was there when I opened the package, so they are not super durable, but if you give it a bit of breathing room in the back and on the bottom your items will be quite cold!

    This is an exceptional product for the price. Its quiet, attractive, and keeps everything very cold. I even put milk and ice cream in it! Of course, I ate the ice cream the same day but it kept it fresh and cold. Ive kept salads, and deli meats stored as well!! My only advice, dont put anything in it until youve had it plugged in for at least 24 hrs , and there will be a " plastic smell" for the first few days. It will go away =)

    I purchased this mini fridge for my husband to store beer and sodas in his man cave. I like that is small and unobtrusive. He likes that it holds quite a bit of beer (at least 18 long necks, plus some room in the door for soda cans or a two-liter bottle). The shelf is adjustable, which gives you storage options. The Nucool technology keeps it cold enough for beer and soda. I don't know about perishables, because we don't intend to store those things. Just like any fridge, it took a couple of hours to cool down completely (but during this time, I opened and closed the door several times to stock it, and then show it off to my husband when he got home). The motor (if there is one--I don't really understand how Nucool works) is really quiet, so I imagine this could work well in a bedroom or office. The price was excellent, and really, for $60 and free shipping, who really cares if it doesn't last forever?

    • A. It is very quiet. Only a low fan noise, similar to a desktop PC. The fan only blows when the unit is cooling. If you keep it turned up to the top all the time it may run almost all the time.
