    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!

        Comments about Danby Compact Refrigerator:

        Bought this to use in my office. It fits perfectly under the desk and is barely noticeable. It's very quiet, looks nice, keeps beverages and healthy snacks cool and fresh. I don't love built in can holder (wish it was just a regular door space/shelf), as I don't drink beverages in cans, but I'm sure it's useful to those who use it for canned beverages.
