    We purchased this unit in October 2012. By Freruary, 2013, it was making a loud poping noise and would not work. Service person came out and changed the thermostat. It lasted less than two months and it started popping again and not functioning. Got money back but had to dispose of unit. Very unsatisfactory product and experience.

    The cooler was easy to set up, and it was not difficult to change the door to the opposite side. It looks good and cools fairly well. While I haven't monitored it closely, it seems to run a few hours a day. It is noisy enough when it runs that I would not like it in my living room, but it is fine in my laundry room.It can hold close to the 50 bottles it is rated to hold, and most of the shelves can hold oversize Pinot bottles.An open question is its reliability. My previous wine cooler (not this brand) was quieter but would not hold oversize bottles except on one shelf, and it lasted less than 2 years. I purchased an additional 3-year warranty for this product from Home Depot for a very reasonable price. So far (2 weeks), I've had no need for service.All in all, a reasonable product, a good warranty and a great value.

    I had a (expensive-brand) built-in wine cooler that broke and a replacement was completely out of my budget. The Vissani seemed like the best low-priced unit based on the features and reviews, which are mostly negative for almost every brand. Because of the reviews, I purchased an extended warranty. Any comparison to my previous unit is unfair, since it is over three times the price, but it is what I had before so it had set my expectations. Regarding other reviewers complaints of uneven cooling in different sections, my previous unit's manual specifically tells you which sections are cooler (back and bottom) and warmer (front) so I do not consider that a defect in any way, just a shortcoming in the Vissani manual.Based on reviews, I removed the back and checked for any reason the fan or compressor might be noisy, and found everything satisfactory. The lower grill cover was very bent. This may have happened while trying to remove the unit from the packaging, but I don't know. It was definitely sitting on the Styrofoam in a way that bent it. I was able to straighten it somewhat by putting it on the carpet and stepping on the middle while pulling the bend out. It was still bent, but as mentioned by another reviewer, it is down low so it was tolerable. The door was very crooked. I considered reversing the door to see if it would be better, but in the process discovered that by pulling the door as much as possible while tightening the screws, that I could make it straighter, but not straight. Sine the unit is built-in and you only see the door, I un-leveled the unit with the adjustable feet to make the door appear straight when it was installed. This had the unfortunate side-effect of making the door slam into the cabinet while I was retrieving wine.One bit of obviously poor design is that there is no off switch. As soon as I plugged in the unit, it came on with no way to turn it off, so I slid it into the built-in position under the counter with it running. The owners manual suggests turning it off when not in use for an extended period, but this is not possible when built-in and the plug is behind it.The shelves slide out in a simple way, with a clever protrusion to prevent them falling and allowing the shelf to tilt. This is all true only when empty. Once I had wine on the shelves, they no longer slid freely, and the shelf was in danger of dropping out when slid forward. I was unable to add or remove wine bottles without shaking most of the bottles in the cooler.I set the thermostat to 52, and it never got below 57. I lowered it to 50, and it got to 55. Sensing a pattern, I lowered it to 47, and it promptly went to 48. Setting it to 49 let it fluctuate in the lower 50s. My previous unit did not have a digital thermostat, and I have no idea whether it fluctuated - I had simply set it to a position where I liked the temperature of the wine. I bought a thermometer and verified where the temperatures were colder/warmer, and that the fluctuation on the digital display was in fact understating the variation in other parts of the cooler.The real clincher in my unhappiness with the unit is how the wine bottles stack. My previous unit alternated the bottle position on shelves, so that a bottle was under the bottle two shelves above, and between the bottles on the shelf above. This lets you see the labels. The Vissani stacks them all above one another and you cannot see any labels. It also makes the fit for bottles much tighter to add or remove them. I've looked at pictures of other units and see that this is true of most brands. I hated this. Since pulling out the shelves shook everything, this was a deal-breaker for me and I began prowling craigslist and eBay for a unit like my old one but in my budget.The longer I owned the Vissani, the less disgruntled I became, and decided that if I could not find a used replacement within the 90 days of the return policy that I would keep it and could be happy with it. Fortunately, I found a used replacement like my old cooler and returned the Vissani for a full refund, including the warranty. Thank you Home Depot for your great return policy. I'm now a happy camper, and my used wine cooler, which has no warranty whatsoever, is steady at 52 degrees and I can see the labels.I recommend the Vissani only to someone who is unwilling to purchase a used cooler without a warranty, and whose budget cannot go substantially higher than this price point. (Wait for it to go on sale.) It's reasonably quiet, has the same bottle layout as most other brands, holds plenty of bottles, can be installed built-in, and does its job in its inexpensive way. I, however, am really happy I don't own it anymore.

    Despite other negative reviews I went ahead an purchased this unit. It would not cool from day 1 and I had to return it. Too bad. It is a nice looking unit and it appears to be solidly built. I did not get a replacement unit due to my experience. Just to let everyone know, HD was very good about returning the unit with no hassles.

    Lasted and worked a month. Then broke and ever cooled again. They sent a repair man who wasted our time and missed the first two visits n finally one came n advised they couldn't repair it. What a waste of money.

    I found (like some others) that removing the little plate across the bottom back made a huge improvement in the noise. It wasn't rattling or anything, but I think it was concentrating and reflecting all of the compressor noise right out the bottom front vents. It's really super quiet now without that plate on. I don't know for sure, but I don't think that plate is really necessary given nobody will have access to that area, and my old Magic Chef (older but similar design) didn't have one anyway.It seems to me the motor and fan were pretty quiet, as both are mounted in isolating rubber grommets or housings. So no vibrations are translated to the cabinet. Now with this very little mod, it's great and I hardly notice it when it's running. So far so good.One other note, I found I could only fit champagne bottles on the top rack and four bottles on the second from the bottom rack... wish I could do more... though that is 12 bottles.

    Bought this wine cooler Oct 2012. Worked for a month then stopped cooling below 64F. I will be calling Magic Chef for service to see if they behind behind their product. Wished I had read the others' reviews before buying it. A small cheaper fridge will probably work better.

    Would not recommend buying this product. We had it 4 days and returned it due to not cooling properly. It would only cool down to 44 degrees and we had it set for 39. Very disappointed in the product.

    Purchased unit in Feb. of 2008. The compressor stopped working four years later. It is under warranty but the labor to install a new one is over $500 if you can find anyone to do it. I guess a company can warranty a part knowing that no customer will want to spend more on the labor than on the cost of the original unit. I say, Buyer Beware.

    We purchased this wine cooler for the wet bar in our family room and it is too loud when it kicks on and off and is running. It looks nice, but given the price we paid, I expected more.

    The temperature varies quite a bit. I used an indoor-outdoor thermometer to check the accuracy of the setting. Here is what I found:With the temperature set at the default for red wine:**At the top of the unit, the temperature varied between 54 and 62 degrees**At the bottom of the unit, the temperature varied between 49 and 63 degreesWith the temperature set at the default for white wine:**At the top of the unit, the temperature varied between 44 and 53 degrees**At the bottom of the unit, the temperature varied between 36 and 51 degrees.These measurements were taken with the cooler empty.So don't expect the temperature to be at all consistent from top to bottom nor consistent over time. The range of 15 degrees a the bottom for white wine is rather bad, I think. For long-term preservation of fine wines, the variation in temperature is as important as the temperature itself. The reason is that if the temperature varies, the bottles breathe more. That pulls in more air, which causes wines to degrade. Mitigating this somewhat is the fact that interior bottle temperature would not vary as quickly as the air in the cooler. Nonetheless, this cooler should be considered as a place to store wines several months but not for years, in my opinion.

    Bought this item from HD on Feb 20 based on the reviews and I'm keeping it in a 72-75 degree kitchen. I let it cool overnight to adjust and the 2nd day, it seem to still be a little warm. The built in thermometer never showed the temperature I set it to and the temperature was always 5 degrees hotter then then thermometer i put . 3rd day, I set it to 43 and the cooler's thermometer was measuring 47 the whole time, but my own thermometer displayed 56 degrees. Turns out that it only cools the bottom 2 racks of wine and the top 3 racks have a 10+ degree difference. I called the company to report the problem and they offered to refer me to a tech under their warranty.. However, I think i should return the unit and find another one. Seems like these have a bad reputation.

    I bought this cooler as a Christmas gift to myself. It was on sale for 25% off, and there truly isn't another cooler on the market with this much capacity that can touch it for the price. I am using it as a built-in, and I love the fact that this one is specifically designed with a front vent, so it can be used either free-standing or built-in. I saw some other reviews complaining that the unit is loud, but I installed mine under a wet bar in my bedroom and you can't even hear it unless you are right next to it. It has only one zone, but I only stock red wines, so it's fine for me. There is only one unforeseen problem... now that I have it, I feel compelled to fill it. This "gift" is turning out to be much more expensive than I anticipated!

    I bought two "Magic Chef" units. The first one burned out after 13 months, (just out of warranty). Repair estimate was 2/3 the original cost. The second unit is now 3 years old and I can't hear the TV over the noise it makes. Avoid this product.

    We purchased this unit because it holds 50 bottles without having to stack them. We also like the fact that the shelves slide out for easy access to all bottles on that shelf.

    I had been looking at this cooler and planned on purchasing it based on previous reviews; however I was concerned about the issues others had listed with the noise. I found it online with an additional $50 off and free shipping. It arrived quickly and set up was easy. The temperature is perfect at 39 degrees but the top of the cooler is colder then the bottom. My only complaint is that half the bottles are in the back part of the cooler and it is not easy to see what is there without removing the front bottles.

    Found this on sale on Black Friday while looking for tools. I went to Pacific Sales to view better models but found that most were hundreds more for less capacity or thousands for more features and space. I came back for this unit.So far, it works well. After start up, it took overnight to bring a full load of 50 room temperature bottles down to the red wine temp (54). I switched to the white wine temperature that next morning and it's been running at 48-49 ever since. It's located in a vestibule next to the bedroom and is quiet enough that I don't hear it with the door closed; a little louder than a new dual compressor Thermador refrigerator just installed. I guess we'll see how long it lasts for $348.

    I love this unit.i purchased this unit last year.I had seen many very expensive units that held just as much wine as this one.I figured it's worth the shot.It has been a wonderful edition to our kitchen.It does keep the wine at the right temperature.I don't know where the people complaining of noise put there unit,but ours is in the kitchen and it sounds great.People should also know when you first stock the unit with wine(50 bottles) it does take more than 24 hours for all the bottles to reach the ideal temp.So the unit will run for several hours til that happens.

    We bought this after reading all of the reviews. We had it delivered (free) and let it sit upright for about three days before plugging it in. It is very quiet and cooled immediately to the set temperature. It looks like a much more expensive unit. We wish we had purchased this a long time ago. Great look for the price. Can't beat the price. And there was a $50 rebate, so save the box for the UPC label.

    Good price, easy installation, looks great in kitchen, temp stays right where I set it. I had seen a review that indicated it was loud, but at first it was only slightly louder than the previous unit. I thought that was OK based on all the other positives. Then after two months it began making so much noise when the compressor comes on that it almost drives us out of the kitchen. It is hard to carry on a conversation. I love Home Depot, but I won't spec Magic Chef in any homes I design! A Texas Architect
