    Ordered this unit after space limitations limited my options, but also performed web research on the company and product. It looks great, and keep your wine consistently chilled at the temperature set. My only negative, and it is significant, is the unit’s noise. Every time the compressor kicks on, it is LOUD. Then it fades to an acceptable level. The problem however, the unit also vibrates to the point I’m calling in a service request (or it will be returned if not remedied). It is louder than two other fridges in the same space combined – by far. I emptied the unit of all bottles, rechecked the leveling on the floor, and set it up a second time, no improvement. The vibration is from within the walls of the fridge, not the wine bottles or racks.

    I’ve been looking for over a year for a unit that would store my decent collection of reds at a price that makes sense. Let’s just say it has not been easy. The decent units cost a fortune and almost everyone has some poor reviews. I thought I found a nice wine fridge on Craigslist and borrowed a truck to go pick it up. Thankfully I took a thermometer with me because the new unit never got below 75 even though the reading on it said 60. I left and decided to stop at Costco for some grocery shopping. By luck I found this unit there for $999 and picked it up. First I would probably advise against getting any such unit off the web. Get it somewhere you can return. I have had no issues but bases on some of the reviews I’ve read on every model, I’ve come to the conclusion that some just have defects and need to be returned. Shipping charges are also ridiculous. These units are heavy and once you take the packaging off it’s impossible to get back on. Anyhow, it took me less than a minute to start it and set temps for both zones and my thermometer confirmed its got the right reading in both zones so effectively it does what it advertises. Also this must be the only unit that will actually hold as many bottles as advertised. I got exactly 142 in and they include Pinots, Syrahs, bigger Cabs, etc. I only give it 4 stars for two reasons: first, it’s louder than I expected as a fan in there runs almost all the time. Mine is in a formal living room and while I can hear it, it’s not any different than my top of the line kitchen fridge. Secondly, the lock on the bottom is truly a puss poor design. It works for my purposes which is keeping my kids out of it but any adult can pull bottles out of the top racks while it’s locked. I’ll write an update if things change but for now I’m very happy. It’s a good looking unit though deeper than I expected. Not sure how Costco had it for half or 40% off Amazon and other web stores. Maybe it’s being discontinued as with everything these days.

    In addition to all the other issues, this is why I won’t buy from Vinotemp:

    “Vinotemp imposes a horrible, anti-consumer “non-disparagement clause”
    In 2007, I purchased a Vinotemp wine cooler. It is a large, costly, two-door appliance capable of maintaining hundreds of bottles of wine at an appropriate temperature for long-term cellaring. I have generally been pleased with the product since I bought it. This morning, I became concerned that it was no longer holding the correct temperature. Fortunately, it turned out to be working just fine–my thermometer just took longer than I expected to show the correct temperature inside the unit.

    In the meantime, however, I went to Vinotemp’s web site to research warranty and service information. I was surprised to read this:

    Non-Disparagement Clause
    In an effort to ensure fair and honest public feedback, and to prevent the publishing of libelous content in any form, your acceptance of this sales contract prohibits you from taking any action that negatively impacts Vinotemp, its reputation, products, services, management or employees.
    Should you violate this clause, as determined by Vinotemp in its sole discretion, you will be provided a seventy-two (72) hour opportunity to retract the content in question. If the content remains, in whole or in part, you will immediately be billed $3,500.00 USD for legal fees and court costs until such complete costs are determined in litigation. Should these charges remain unpaid for 30 calendar days from the billing date, your unpaid invoice will be forwarded to our third party collection firm and will be reported to consumer credit reporting agencies until paid.
    The above terms and conditions are the only ones governing this transaction and Seller makes no oral representations of any kind. These Terms and Conditions can only be modified in writing, signed by both Purchaser and Seller. 12/13
    This block of doublespeak was familiar to me; it’s the same non-disparagement clause that KlearGear used to suppress unfavorable reviews of their products. Basically, the clause says that if a customer makes unfavorable statements about the product, the company will bill the customer for legal fees to seek removal of the unfavorable statements, and will submit those fees to a collection agency if they’re not paid. KlearGear did just that. The KlearGear situation was ably covered by Ken White at Popehat and the Consumerist. Subsequently, Public Citizen filed a lawsuit on behalf of the couple affected by the clause.

    Legal issues aside, the use of such clauses is incredibly hostile to customers. Vinotemp’s products are expensive (often thousands of dollars), and are used to protect valuable wine (often tens of thousands of dollars’ worth). Would you want to make such a purchase knowing that if something went wrong, Vinotemp might try to prevent you from telling others about your problems? Would you want to make such a purchase knowing that other people with problems might have been prevented from discussing them publicly?

    The way to maintain a positive image in the marketplace is to provide good products and services to your customers, not to threaten them with legal and financial harm. I call on Vinotemp to remove this offensive clause from their terms and conditions, and to waive it for past customers who “agreed” to it. Until they do so, despite my good experience with their product, I am forced to discourage other wine lovers from purchasing Vinotemp wine coolers.”
