It is a great price for a great product. It's one of the only fridges I could find that has two zones in such a small package and with such a reasonable price. It works great. Just make sure it is well ventilated as it does produce a bit of heat and needs constant fresh air. If you put it in a closet or other cabinet, make sure you ventilate it with a separate fan. Otherwise, it won't be able to chill itself down.

I read the reviews that said that this unit can't maintain more than 10 degrees difference between the two chambers and ignored them. I read the specs that said the maximum temperature reduction was 30 degrees and believed them. I should have reversed my thinking.

This unit cannot bring a compartment with 6 bottles of wine to 46 degrees. It also cannot manage a large spread between compartments. One time, I managed to see 11 degrees of difference between compartments - but 9 is more typical and 10 can happen.

I got this for myself as a Christmas present - intending one compartment for white and one for red. I am operating it that way and continuing to search for a relaxation of my expectations that the unit can achieve.

It's actually not a bad unit - just over stated in capability. It will not meet the claimed specs. However, if you are happy with a 50 degree compartment and a 60 degree compartment, with noticeably more noise than "silent" to get your wines "close" to optimal temperature - this is a moderately priced unit that will probably meet your needs.

It's been in operation for about 2 weeks - so I can't comment on longevity.

I would recommend this unit only if the friend understood the product capabilities. I would not recommend it based on the claimed performance.

    The dual temperatures are a wonderful feature, however one of the refrigeration units doesn't maintain it's temperature very well.

    Comments about Wine Enthusiast Silent 12 Bottle Touchscreen Wine Refrigerator (2-Temp):

    I gave this to my husband for Christmas. We love wine, but are just learning about it. This is a great beginning product. He builds custom homes with every expensive wine rooms, but for us, this compact design fit into our curio and hides it well. However, it does need 5 inches of clearance behind the unit, so we had to pull the curio out into the room further.

    Service and delivery comments:

    It arrived a day earlier, in excellent condition. I did not purchase customer service with it. However, it is 48 pounds and cumbersome for just me to move.

    Comments about Wine Enthusiast Silent 12 Bottle Touchscreen Wine Refrigerator (2-Temp) (Outlet):

    Great product, I am very happy with my refrigerator, I wish the light switch was outside, but it is inside, no biggie. I set the left side on 63 for reds and right side on 52 for whites and works just fine. I can't barely hear it in the house. I notice that 750ml bottles shaped a little bigger than usual only fits in the bottom of cooler, so are the longer ones as well, but they fit with no problem, you just have to re arrange it on the shelves.
    I am very happy with it. Great product for its price. If you like wine but are no wine expert you will not regret it!!!!

      Comments about Wine Enthusiast Silent 12 Bottle Touchscreen Wine Refrigerator (2-Temp):

      It is not useful in a dining room or kitchen because of excessive fan noise. The addition of quiet fans would have made this product an incomprable wine cooler without peer.

      Comments about Wine Enthusiast Silent 12 Bottle Touchscreen Wine Refrigerator (2-Temp):

      I have this little fridge sitting on the hutch in my casual dining area. I love having the dual zones so I can keep a few bottles of white and a few of red at the right temperature. It is a little noisy; when I come down first thing in the morning, it is definitely what I hear. However, if the living room tv is on, or music is playing, I really don't notice the fridge noise at all. Also, when you add a warm (room temp) bottle, it takes the internal temperature up several degrees and takes about a day or so to get it back. My husband has decided to pre-chill a new bottle so it's closer to the wine fridge temperature going in. That seems to work well. I've had this product less than a month at this point, but so far I'm very pleased.

        Love the product. Has been used for a little under 2yrs with no issues. About a month ago the unit went down. Called customer service for assistance. Since I was out of warranty they could do nothing as there is no replacement parts. It is repair by replacement. I now have to buy another unit. Not real smart customer service and support. I will switch to another brand
