Product Reviews
Rated 1.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great find I went in search of a small refrigerator for our conference room at work so that I would not have to put beverages on ice anymore for meetings. I did not want it to have the small useless freezer that most of these units have. All the freezer does is freeze up and cause us to have to thaw the unit occasionally. In addition to taking up valuable space inside the unit. I found this model here on sale for under $80. Working great so far and it is quiet which is another thing I needed and did not know how loud one would be in our small conference room. 8/30/10
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst purchase ever Does not cool well , if the room temp is high , it is a disaster because it cool only 15 degree below room temp. 9/27/10
Rated 1 out of 5 by Don't order this product This refridgerator is the most unreliable product ever! It does not cool properly. I am extremely disapointed in the product and the support offered regarding the problems related to it. The service technician even mentioned that "it was garbage." 9/28/10
Rated 1 out of 5 by Waste of money Bought one of these for my office. Wanted a quiet unit with automatic defrost. After 1 year, it is very quiet, it doesn't run. The power circuit board is bad, and it is next to impossible to get a part. Spend your money on a unit that has a compressor! They cost a little bit more and they work a whole lot better! Anyone need a part out of this one? 6/28/12
