Wine Fridge/Cooler Recommendation?

Pip | Nov 8, 2009 05:23 PM

Can someone recommend a good wine fridge/cooler? I'm planning on purchasing this as a gift with some other friends for a 30th birthday. Our budget is around $600, and of the posts I found already, it looks like conversations revolve around fridges under $200.

I don't know what to look for in a wine fridge, but obviously consistent temperature is a plus. I'm not too concerned about the fridge holding a ton of bottles, but about 30-50 would be ideal since it seems that most fridges don't actually hold what they claim (due to varying bottle sizes).

I'm also interested in a company that has good customer service in case something were to happen to the fridge once purchased. There are a lot of comments about Haier, Vinotemp and Danby having either poor quality (freezing the wine or breaking down) or horrible customer service.

Any help is appreciated - thanks.
