We bought this mini fridge to get us by after our 80s refrigerator died and we had to wait a week for our new one to be delivered. It was much more convenient and cheaper than eating out every meal and my 2 year old couldn't live without his milk. It appeared to have even temperature control. There was no frozen edges on some stuff or warm spots anywhere. We also had some items in the freezer. The guide said not to leave things in the freezer for more than 3 days, but it kept our items hard frozen for 5+ days. It may have gone even longer, but our new fridge was delivered then. As far as mini fridges go, it wasn't very loud. Leveling it out took a little work. We ended up just setting it on top of a plastic storage bin. We do not use this fridge frequently, so I cannot attest to its longevity. It is fairly attractive and matches well with my other white appliances, so if I did ever add a wetbar, I wouldn't hesistate to build this fridge in. It was difficult fitting a whole gallon of milk in the fridge due to the configuration of the shelves. We had to take a shelf out and had to be very careful to ensure that the door closed all the way. If you need it for milk, I would recommend a larger size. Half gallons of milk and condiments and hot dogs would fit great. I don't think you could fit an average 2 liter in this fridge without a real battle though.
