I bought two, they work great. Keeps my beer at 34°
They definitely get cold enough. Might be a little loud if it was in your bedroom but mine is in the basement bar and certainly not a problem.

Just bought this unit 3 days ago and finally plugged it in last night. 18 hours later there is no cooling whatsover. The inside of the fridge is warmer than the room tempertaure surrounding it. It is running but it is not cooling. Clearly I have a defective unit. Good thing is that Abt has been great and is going to send me a replacement on their truck and pick up the defective one. We'll see what happens with the replacement but I am really concerned about Danby quality now. I will update this post after I have the replacement up and running.

Excellent BEverage Cooler
from Ottawa, KS
Comments about Danby Freestanding Beverage Center:
This is a super cooler and on just shy of it's highest setting, it keeps beer and water extremely cold. This one sits in the garage in even when I have the door open for weekend chores, it sweats a little, but keeps on cooling.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Low end quality; Poor shelf design
By Big Show
from Racine, WI
I have 3 of these fridges in my bar. All 3 perform differently... Fridge 1 - The thermostat is set about 3/4 and all the beer is just above freezing; works well Fridge 2 - The thermostat is set to the max and the beer is just cold enough to drink Fridge 3 - The thermostat is set to the max and the fridge doesn't get cold enough for beer. So now I use this one for mixers, soda, etc. Another issue - I serve all bottled beer. With bottles (or cans), they tip over on the wire shelves unless set a certain way. I had to put shelf liners in so everything doesn't tip over all the time. Annoying!! When I searched for beverage centers for my bar these were literally the cheapest option. So as a price point, I purchased them. In hindsight, I should have paid more for something with a little more quality. Definitely not satisfied.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Getting Started
Great deal for the price.
By Tony v

I needed a small cooler to contain my specialty craft beer. It required a lower temperature than my household refrigerature. I looked at wine coolers but they were not designed for my needs. This unit does everything I have asked for. You can control the temperature and it has been very reliable so far in the 18 months that I have owned it. The shelves adjust to accommodate the larger bottles.
First Impressions: Good

Some reviews claim it's loud, and mine was initially, until I fiddled with the housing around the fan. The fan blade was hitting the housing. No more. It works great and is as quiet as a mouse.

I bought two of the Danby built-in units for my basement bar. Like them so much I bought two of these smaller units one for each of my kids bedrooms. They are a very good value

I bought my beverage centers through ABT appliance company. One had a small dent & one didn't open properly. They replaced the one that didn't open properly with a new unit. Even though I think it could have easily been repaired. And they gave me 20% off on the one with the small dent. I was very happy with their service as well as the product.

NOT COLD ENOUGH
from Michigan, United States
My main issue with this fridge is that it does not get cold enough, even though I leave it set on max. Also, one of the shelves has a very strange trough in the middle, perhaps for a wine bottle, but it is useless for bottles or cans. The unit is quiet, and otherwise satisfactory.
I use this as a drink ...
from Amarillo, TX, United States
I use this as a drink cool next to my main refrigerator. It is a nice looking unit and keeps the beverages cold with room to chill them even colder if desired. No problems with the unit, runs quietly.
this fridge works perfect

It has been a year and this beverage cooler is working great.
