I ordered this product because a cheap 28 bottle wine fridge I had owned died after only a year and a half. [...] Setup was quick and easy and the fridge got down to temperature very quickly. I have a 2nd of the bad fridges sitting next to this Wine Enthusiast fridge and the Wine Enthusiast fridge is always right at the exact temperature I set it at, whereas my other fridge jumps around about +/- 4 degrees. I like that this fridge has adjustable shelves, meaning you can fit larger Pinot / Syrah / etc bottles in it, although you sacrifice space for 4 bottles. The fridge is super quiet (especially compared to my other fridge) and seems to be working very well. I've had it for 2 weeks now and am enjoying it (although I can't comment on how long it will last. I did buy the 2 year extended warranty which for $20-30 is worth it, compared to [$] to replace it!).A couple negatives: 1) Each of the shelves has a little lip on the end that extends over the metal. I think this is for aesthetic reasons (it's a flat piece of metal that's perpendicular to the shelf, at the end of the shelf), although it may help prevent some bottles from falling out, it really makes getting bottles IN very difficult. It also makes it impossible to fit the larger width bottles like Pinot/Syrah. My other fridge (The bad one) doesn't have that little lip and I can squeeze those bottles in. 2) The light on the fridge is pretty much useless, except for maybe the top row or two. Not a big deal but the light on my other fridge works well.Otherwise I'm enjoying the fridge.

The wine fridge seems fine--it's only been a few days. Set up was easy, but getting to that stage was not. There was so much packaging--cardboard and styrofoam--almost ridiculous. I know they have to keep the fridge getting damaged, but it took an hour to get the fridge out and then to break down the packaging material.

But, once set up, the wine fridge is indeed very quiet. Temperature seems accurate. I knew before I bought it that other users had commented about the racks not being suitable for burgundy bottles. Very true--so I ended up taking a shelf or two out and stacking bottles on top of each other to compensate. It's just too small for me, but I did get two...so I'm going to keep them, for now.

    Comments about Wine Enthusiast Silent 28 Bottle Wine Refrigerator (Graphite Trim Glass Door):

    Perfect for my small NYC apartment. Holds its temperature beautifully. Very quiet, have to pay very close attention to hear it at all. Can fit 27 going in 'head-first'. Only ones that don't fit are a couple excessively extra-tall bottles of gruner veltliner. No longer have to worry about my wines getting cooked in the hot NYC summer!

        Absolutely quiet. Keeps accurate temperature. Energy efficient. Very nice appearance, high quality. However, must adjust shelving to accomodate various sizes and shapes of bottles i.e., will not hold 28 bottles without rubbing on above rack.

        I use the product to store red wines and find the size, lighting, constant temperature, and quietness real plusses. Do wish there was a little more width between shelving, but other than that am very pleased. Will definitely buy another from Wine Spectator...solid product.

        Comments about Wine Enthusiast Silent 28 Bottle Wine Refrigerator (Stainless Steel Trim Door):

        I purchased this fridge online, without seeing it in person. I was disappointed by the shelves once it arrived. They are very cheap and do not slide easily. But the price was right. It was a little more noisy than I had expected. Then the unit broke after 3 months of use. Customer service said it was a bad motherboard. It's been two weeks and I have still not received my new unit. I had to pay the shipping for the unit that broke after 3 months. It's very disappointing, as I had a wine ceremony done at my wedding and my bottle of wine has not been kept at 55 degrees since the unit broke. The repair center is not available to help you on the weekends. I wish I would have purchased another brand.

          There are enough wines that come in larger bottles, why can't they make the fridge the extra inch or two larger that would make us all happy?
          If you take shelves out then you are really wasting space.

          I was looking for a decently priced mini fridge for wine storage in a closet. I began to realize that for a little more money, I could get a good quality wine cooler. This was by far the best option for the money.

          Comments about Wine Enthusiast Silent 28 Bottle Wine Refrigerator (Graphite Trim Glass Door):

          This is a great product. It works flawlessly and it is as quiet as advertized. The only issue I have, is that it will not hold the 28 bottle capacity if you have larger bottles (eg. Chardonney, Pinot, Sparkling). In order to fit these bottle shapes, you need to remove one of the racks. So this fridge in reality has a 24-bottle capacity (not 28).

              I'm very pleased with this wine frig. Ample room for 20+ assorted bottles. Unit took a number of hours to equilibrate but now holds mostly quietly at "55" which a good thermometer is reading "58." Seems to need to be located out from a wall 2-3 inches to hold temp. The true test will be June/July when we escape the heat and flip the house AC off.
