Looks to be a quality product. I just installed it in by wet bar. The only complaint that I have is that I would like to reverse the door, but the screws are in so tight that I can't get them loose. Door seal was hard to remove to get the screws in the door handle, but it should stay in place that way.

Dude my bar now looks like a BAR!
Very very nice. The service was great because I had to change the delivery address because Amazon had my old address. The office helped me figure out a way to speak to the delivery company and work with them directly. As far as the unit I wanted to give it a few weeks to see how it preformed and it's exactly what I was looking for and very nice quality.
I read the reviews before I bought the unit and I thought it very helpful and I agree with what I read, you may be able to buy something a little cheaper but I didn't find anything as nice or as good od quality for the price.
Great job guys.

The unit arrived at my home in sturdy packaging with Styrofoam on all sides in the box. Unpacked it look great. You have to put the door handle on (two screws); door came hinged on right side, which was OK with me. Clearance required is only a 1/5 inch on either side and 2/5 inch in the back. The manual was very clear on first steps: let the compressor fluids settle by standing upright for 24 hours, level it, start up empty to cool the box then fill up with drinks and cool. I did those things and the set temperature of 43 degrees (35 degrees is the minimum allowed) with about a 1/3 full of room temperature drinks was reached in about 2 hours. The glass shelves have holes in them to allow for circulation. The unit is very quiet; what I mostly hear is the fan and it is not loud. This unit replaces a 12 year old Marvel unit which was much louder. Shelves were arranged to accept upright 12 oz cans and small water bottles on the top shelf. I chose to lower the top tray to put in long neck glass beer bottles. Doing that still left a gap that permits 12 oz cans to be stored upright on the shelf below it. Some reviewers complained about having to unscrew a holding nub to get the shelf out. You don't need those nubs if you don't want the shelves to slide out and not tip. When I moved the shelf, there was no hole to put the nub into so only fixed locations allow slide-out shelves. The bottom of the unit has grooves so that wine bottles can be placed there. Note though only Chardonnay type bottles will fit. The long neck Riesling bottles need to be placed on any of the other shelves. The shorter length on the bottom is due the part of the mechanical systems bulging inward about 4 inches. Since this is a first look review, I'll update this later if I encounter any issues. So far this appears to be a very good replacement for my old unit.
