Pros: Cools the wine.
Two temp. zones.
Temp. controls on the outside outside (you don't have to open the door).
No compressor, etc.
Cons: Slightly oversize bottle are a problem.
A little high pitched noise in a quiet room.
Other Thoughts: Seems to work well with good temperature control. Rather noisy at first, or when you add wine at room temperature. Gradually quiets down, but at its quietest, there still a little high pitch fan noise which is disturbing in a very quiet room. 140 watts is max. I have it set for 60 degrees (for reds) and 50 for whites. At that setting, it takes about 40 watts, which seems to be continuous.
You'll learn to appreciate the difference in wine bottle size and shape. You'll only get 32 bottles inside if you pick the slim bottles; larger diameter bottles will require removing adjacent shelves, and sparkling wines are a real squeeze.
Pros: Ran on first power-up and hasn't blinked yet.
Cons: None to date
Other Thoughts: First Windows 8.1 build:
O/S disk - Samsung SSD Pro, 128G
G-Skill 12,800 - 4G
Boots in about 15 seconds, shuts down in 5.
Passmark score: 1654
Draws 28W out of the wall (when running Chrome).
Not a gamer, so this has all the compute power I'm likely to need. Video looks fine, apps come up quickly. Excellent choice for a general purpose computer.
I know it's not just the CPU, but USB-3 is really fast!
Pros: Pairs up nicely with my Samsung Galaxy tablet. Spent $5 for the Torque Pro program which works well with my two Subarus (1997 & 2006) and my brother's older Toyota truck.
Cons: May not have every imaginable function, but for the price it seems to cover a lot more than I need.
Other Thoughts: A small shipping error was corrected promptly by the vendor.READ FULL REVIEW
