Experience with wine cooling units?

OftenHungry | Nov 29, 2010 04:09 PM

I am blaming it on habitual visits to the LCBO tasting counter (has the opposite effect of eating before grocery shopping), but I now find myself with about 15 cases of wine in the basement.

Don't think I want a cabinet for storage as I am looking to about a 300 bottle capacity, and like to think I am handy enough to frame and insulate a 'closet sized' space in the basement for storage (~125 sq ft).

Main contenders for small cooling units appear to be :

WhisperKool XLT (a bit expensive and noisy)
KoolR (cheap and unreliable)
CellarPro (mid priced, no other real info)
Breezeaire (mid price, unreliable)

Can anyone recommend ('from experience' is preferred) a small wine cooling unit that is fairly quiet but functions well and leaves some money for vino?
