I bought this item for my husband for Christmas. He drinks Coke when he's at work and I thought he'd like this for his office so he doesn't have to leave his desk every time he wants a soda. He really enjoys the look of it and its capacity, but the cooling fan is VERY loud and he has had to work hard to tune it out. I think if this is going to be considered a mini fridge, then it should be quieter if you are going to have it marketed as something that is going to be in close proximity for extended amounts of time to people and their ears. My full size refrigerator is considerably quieter than this. Again, it looks cute and is everything we could hope for for $50, but the fan is so loud and that in and of itself makes me regret my purchase.
