    I like this refrigerator a lot. The compressor is abit noisy but otherwise I'm satisfied. Be careful about getting cans of soda too close to the metal shield in the back covering the refer coils -- I had a soda can freeze and burst; now I leave an inch or so space in the back.

    disappointed performance

    Placed thermometer in unit and adjusted every few days to try to acheive constant temp of 40 degrees. Impossible as ranged from 26 to 44 on same setting. Too much variation!

                      Not having a freezer is a great benefit since it gives you more room. The freezer in most mini-fridges are worthless; so I think it is better to not have one.

                      The self defrosting is worth the price premium.
