User Review

(by Chris)

After about a 18 months the LCD display quit working. After about 24 months it stopped cooling and got extremely hot inside, lost about $150 worth of wine. Then it started cooling again; WTF? So, shame on me, I put more wine in it, and lost that too. Piece of crap. I would never buy another Haier product again. But their stuff does LOOK good in the stores.
