I bought this refrigerator because at the time I had a shortage in money. Now that I have had it a little over a year it still works good. I mostly use it to keep my soda cold. The freezer part of this product does not keep anything frozen. I had gotten a pint of ice cream and put it in the freezer. When I had went back to get it the ice cream was half way melted and had ran out of the unopened ice cream container onto everything else in this fridge. I would not recommend using the freezer part of this fridge to freeze anything but the refrigerator part has always kept whatever I needed cold. Their is not alot of room in this product. I only bought it because it was what I could afford at the time. If I had more money to spend on a mini fridge I would have chosen something else with more room to store items that needed to be cold.

Noise Level
It is very loud when it kicks on. After a while you get used to the noise it makes and sort of forget how noisy it is.

Interior Organization
This product is very small and can not hold alot.

Temperature Control
The freezer part of this product sucks. It will not keep anything frozen. But the fridge part will keep your sodas cold.

Ease of Cleaning
It is easy to clean because it is very small and compact.

Durability
It has gotten noisier with age but it still works good.

Design
I am not a big fan of white and the manufacture of this product could have made it to where it could hold more.

This fridge is tiny and I can only imagine practical for a very small percentage of people. My roommate bought the fridge for our room, and it is so useless that I wish she hadn't even bothered. We were hoping to keep drinks, milk, some staples and the occasional box of leftovers, but there is no way we can do that. The problem is compounded by the drawers which you cannot remove or shift, so the space inside the refrigerator is cut in half. 

And the freezer... well, it's tiny. It's extremely short and not very wide, I think we even had difficulty fitting a regular sized water bottle into it.

But, I must say it does keep the food cold. The freezer especially which has already developed quite a layer of frost around the edge. I would have rated it even lower, but I wanted to be sure I was rating the product and not the size of the refrigerator. All I can say is we'll certainly be careful what we buy next time, I wouldn't want to make the same mistake again.

It is too small.

By

Comments about Haier Compact Refrigerator:

I had the Haier Compact Refrigerator in my office for a brief period of time. My mini refrigerator at the time was dying and I found this one on sale, so I thought why not. As it turns out this device simply could not hold enough products for my preference. I could only fit a few bottles of water and a piece of fruit or two in it. It does not look that small from the outside but when you open it, it is somewhat disappointing. The freezer also did not freeze, so I could not have my usual ice trays in there.

I am glad I did not pay much for this refrigerator because it just did not fit my needs. There is simply no space on the inside. It would be all right if you just wanted to store a few drinks but that is it. In addition, my freezer did not work. I am not sure if I got a faulty machine or something.

Noise Level
You could usually hear it humming but it is not overwhelmingly loud.

Interior Organization
There was barely any room inside!

it's okay.

Comments about Haier Compact Refrigerator:

I got this when I was living with my parents and I had a bit of a problem of someone drinking all my bottled water and soft drinks. So I decided to get it and put it in my room to keep my stuff from being stolen. It does get things cold and thats good but I couldn't really store much in it. It does not really have enough space so you can only put a few items in at a time. If you were in a dorm and you needed to keep a few things cold it might be good for that. You could also use it in an office if you had your own, to keep other employees from stealing your food out of the main refrigerator or to have your drinks cold and close by at all times. I guess that means it could help save money too, since you aren't buying your cold drinks out of the soda machines anymore! All in all, this really isn't a bad product, there are just a few things I wish were better. I wish it were a little bigger than it is and there was more space.

Quality yet small, inside and out; but so cold.

By 

from Neenah, WI

Comments about Haier Compact Refrigerator:

If you're looking a small compact fridge to keep things in your door room or office cold, then this is what you need. If you want your tiny fridge to keep things super cold, then you'll also be winning with this model of compact refrigerator. Sure it is a bit pricey, but unlike a lot of compact models that I have owned over the years..this one wins. It is small, but the shelves are nice inside, it keeps things super cold. And I've had it for years, and moved with it, taken to various places; and it always has worked great. Only one I have ever owned that has lasted more than two years. Sure it is small and you cannot put a ton in it, but it keeps the needed office lunch, door room food essentials or your extra beer nice and chilled. Frozen items even stay frozen! It is not really loud either, but not perfectly silent. Come on though, its so tiny so its not really that loud when you compare it to your full sized one in out in the kitchen.

Great Appliance For Anyone!

Comments about Haier Compact Refrigerator:

I decided to purchase this item for my new home that I bought over the summer. The reason I choose the Haier brand is because I have owned a stand alone freezer that they manufacture and have had absolutely no problems with it for the last six years that I have owned it. This product works just as well for my items the need to be left in the fridge. I find this item to be very easy to use and user friendly. It does its job well and serves its purpose.

Noise Level
Just like my freezer, it'll make a humming noise from time to time, but nothing too loud that would wake me up.

Interior Organization
I really like the set up of this, its just right for my daily needs.

Temperature Control
Simple and easy to use, I like things that aren't complicated.

Ease of Cleaning
I keep my stuff tightly closed and so I really haven't dealt with any big messes, but find this quite easy to maintain.

Durability
I know this will last like my freezer has, it's a brand that isn't American, but I trust it.

Great for an office or dorm

By 

from USA

Comments about Haier Compact Refrigerator:

I have bought this refrigerator for my dorm. I could not have asked for a better size and design: it fits my room perfectly! I am very happy with my purchase. As a student, this size is ideal. I really like the thermostat, as I can adjust the temperature as I want, depends on what food I have in the refrigerator at the moment as well as the season of the year. It keeps my food and drinks very cold. Another feature I really like about this product is the design, which makes it very easy for me to clean. The compartmentalization is also awesome! If you are an organized person, you will love all the shelves and drawers this fridge has. All in all, this refrigerator is good for an office or dorm. It looks quite durable and this makes me think that will lost well throughout my college and maybe beyond after graduation when I will have my own office. I have a friend who is shopping around for a fridge for his office, and when I will suggest this to him, I am sure he would be more than happy to invest in this product.

Perfect for college dorm rooms

By

Comments about Haier Compact Refrigerator:

I seriously ADORE this refrigerator. Very small but gets the job done. We recently purchased this for our daughter before she headed down off to college. It works perfectly! She told us us she couldn't have been happier to have a refrigerator that works as well as hers! We tested it to see how long it would take to freeze a simple water bottle on a higher setting, it took just around an hour and it was completely frozen solid.
This refrigerator is a great deal and so far after 5 months, my daughter says there has been no problem whatsoever.
It's also very easy to clean and the fridge itself is very lightweight.
Although I wouldn't recommend leaving dairy in the refrigerator for long periods of time. I don't think the temperature is sufficient enough to keep a gallon of milk cold. Soft drinks, Water, and other non-dairy beverages are perfect though.
There is also a little freezer compartment where you can store small frozen dinner packages or frozen vegetables. It's also good enough for small containers of frozen desserts.

Small, but useful.

By

Comments about Haier Compact Refrigerator:

I needed a compact fridge for my upstairs family room and this worked out perfectly. It stored the right amount of items that saved us a trip down to the kitchen! It does have a mini freezer on the inside that can hold about three water bottles, but the frost builds up much more quickly than I thought it would. Trying to quickly defrost it by breaking the ice is definitely a bad idea though, that's how I broke mine! I upgraded to a bigger compact, but I'd definitely recommend this one.

Noise Level
It made a little bit of noise, but it has to run so that's to be expected. I never really paid it much attention though.

Interior Organization
There's only so much room to work with in a compact refrigerator, but I was able to fit what I needed.

Temperature Control
A nice range of settings, just like a full-sized refrigerator.

Ease of Cleaning
Easy to clean, horrible to defrost.

Durability
I'd probably still have it had I defrosted it more often.

Design
The back of my fridge was dented, probably in transport, so it can be easily damaged.

Haier Compact Refrigerator HNSB02

from Greer, SC

Comments about Haier Compact Refrigerator:

Over all it's not bad for the size and price.

Noise Level
I chose this size for camping so any noice is not noticeable with all the outdoor noices while camping.

Interior Organization
Big enough to keep a few drinks, some lunch meat and a few other small items. Not much room for frozen items.

Temperature Control
good for refrigerated items but not dependable enough to keep frozen items, hard frozen and ice takes a while to freeze.

Ease of Cleaning
Just wipe down with damp rag.

Durability
Seems to be durable so far.
