i was expecting a refridgerator. i just kept drinks in this but it didnt get them very cold even after days of them being in there.
I was not impressed with this product. The refrigerator is advertised as having a technology that is able to get cold enough to store milk/cheese/yogurt, however, I did not find that the technology this product uses meets those specifications. It does not have a compressor and uses fans with heat sinks and does not get very cold and at best anything inside can only be described as "cooled" but certainly not cold. It takes several hours to get cooled and everytime you open the door every bit of cool air that has built up escapes and because there is no compressor, it will once more take several hours for the air to cool again. In conclusion, I was NOT impressed and cannot in good faith recommend this product. I am returning it and then purchasing a General Electric refrigerator that has a compressor.
I was looking for a small fridge to keep my medication in at home (insulin). I didn't want something that needed defrosting every couple of months. I saw this product and thought I would give it a try (I was skeptic at trying something new). The NU-Cool is quiet and keeps very cold. I followed the instructions to set it on max cool for 2 hours, then set it down to med. I keep water and soft drinks as well as my medicine at approx. 37 degrees. I read a review earlier where someone had trouble with water drainage, all I can say is, they have had a leaking water bottle, This unit stays very dry for me. I know every product has a "lemon" occassionally, but I don't think you can go wrong with this one, (unless you are trying to freeze water). It does keep things cool . . . hence the name . . . NU-COOL system.
I purchased this compact refrigerator for my office. I needed something compact to keep water and items for the occasional lunch while working. I wanted something that would blend in with the office decor and not be an eye sore. It keeps eveything very cold without looking like a refrigerator in my office. I have an artifical plant and some pictures on top and it blends in with the file cabinets. It also runs extremely quiet. I have only had it a few weeks but am extremely pleased with the product thus far.
I have used this fridge in my office for 2 months now, and am super happy with my purchase. It keeps everything cold, and now no more walking half a mile to get my lunch (work in mfg plant). As to comments about cooling...either they purchased a defective fridge or they want their food/drinks almost frozen. May also have to do with the environment the fridge is used. My office stays cool so it doesn't have to work very hard. The comment about the water...I see some water pool at the lip of the fridge from time to time, but I think that's the defrost cycle or whatever. I looked today, and no water. It never makes it to the floor...it's only about and 1/16 of a cup of water. It is very quiet, and blends into the decor.
I have had this fridge for two years now. The first one died while under warranty and I had to pay $15 for shipping and handling for the new fridge plus postage to send it back to the company to get a replacement fridge. The 2nd fridge seems like it wants to die too. Both fridges keep making this loud humming noise every few months which indicates that ice has formed on the blades of the fan. When you hear this sound you must unplug the fridge and let the ice melt for about 24 hours or so otherwise the fridge will die like my first one did. Very annoying and frustrating since I use this fridge at work and co-workers can hear the sound. Spend the extra few dollars and get yourself a reliable brand.
It never cooled cokes very well. It only lasted for 6 months before it died.
Shipped site to store in about a week. Arrived in perfect condition. I have had the product for two weeks and it is working well. Thermostat set on 4 (of 6) holds temp at about 40 degrees in a 78 degree room. Fairly quiet - two small fans in back, similar to the case fan on a PC - noise level about the same as a PC. Gave 4 stars on durability not due to a problem, but the fact that the interior of the door is made of extremely thin vacuum formed plastic. Looks more like packaging material than the interior of a refrigerator. Doesn't look like it would stand much abuse. Much lighter than a conventional refrigerator, so it is easy to carry and move around. Overall - good product.
I bought this product for college child in mid-August. To this date, the refrigerator never cooled anything. Now she tells me that if don't blow out anything but hot air. I destroyed the box it came in and also the receipt. How do I go about getting a replacement for this item?
I thought this was a great product until it completely quit after just 5 months and when I called the company they offered to replace the refrigerator - if I sent the money for shipping & handling! This seems like it should be their responsibility to me since I'm not the one who produced a defective product!
We purchased this "refrigerated cooler" thinking it was a refrigerator. It doesn't keep anything cold but it does make things cooler than room temperature. Read the product descriptions carefully, folks.
I have had this NuCool since June of 2009 and i hate it. It will not get anything cold even after being in there for days. It has water build up at the front all the time. I am ready to throw it out the door and buy a new mini fridge. Do not buy this item if you want you drinks and food cold. If you like thing luke warm this this would be perfect for you
this thing is great it works perfect.
I got a product that didn't work: the shipping company had thrown it around. The box was broken, and the fridge was dented. I had to send it back because it wouldn't turn on. As of yet, I am no closer to getting the fridge I need.
I bought this for my mother while she is in a rehab center and she just loves it. She now is able to keep foods that she likes and can eat when she does not like the food that is served to her. I am glad that we are able to store dairy in this fridge since mom loves cheeses and yogurt.
Just the right size for the office. Keeps drinks very cold. Whisper quiet, you can't even tell when it's running. Construction appears very good.
Great I purchased for my office great and seems to be ideal for that purpose or for dorm room.
This is the best little refrigerator. I have had this in my garage for 4 years. It cools so great. I sometimes have to turn it down due to it freezes the beer and drinks so good.
This product operates without a freezer compartment which is exactly what I needed. There is more space for keeping items cool.
Lightweight and big inside. It's hard to find a small refrigerator that doesn't have a freezer. It's just what I wanted for the office.
