Excellent product backed by excellent customer service!
Bought this wine cooler to be used as a humidor (which seems to be a very popular model to do so) and it has held up just perfect. I am thinking about purchasing a second one really soon here. As for the customer service, it was stellar. I received the cooler within 3 days of placing my order! Only downside (which really isn't a big deal) was there was a pretty good little ding in the back. It was only superficial being that it is on the back side but I still had to let customer service know and within minutes, they resolved the minor issue by giving me a $15.00 refund. Awesome! Now know that it wasn't even Air N Water's fault but more so the packaging at the manufacturer but they stepped up and took care of it. Lastly, the price plus warranty for 4 years was hard to pass up! Will buy from again!

Tempature rock solid at 66 degrees
I use the wine cooler as a cigar humidor as others do. I put a pound of 65 RH beads in and it is maintaining 64% and 66 degrees which is perfect it has maintained that for about 2 1/2 weeks. The only problem I had was getting the strong smell of plastic out of it, other than that I have been extremely happy with it.

Best cooler bang for the buck!
I had two Vin-O-Temps die within weeks of each other. I'm so glad that I found Air-n-Water. Within a day, the temp, with wine bottles added, had me grinning with delight. There is an expected temp variance from top to bottom, yet well within my wines' limits. The cooler is in my office and, when kicked into high gear, it is noisier than I would prefer, but well within the limits of my ability to ignore. Glad I bought this, will buy more from Air-n-Water, and will recommend this to my friends. That's satisfaction.

Awesome Humidor
I know alot of people have already commented on using this item as a humidor, just throwing in my agreement with the general consensus here. It is a great unit, looks awesome, makes very little noise, and maintains steady at 65-66 degrees, even in my garage. As far as capacity, I have 9 boxes in it right now with about 2 and a half shelves left for zip-loc bags and my humidification beads. I highly recommend this piece, and this site is the cheapest I found it anywhere. It arrived in perfect condition and in a timely fashion.

This product worked exactly as advertised
W service dept, the part was supplied UPS overnight. I bought this wine cooler in Sept and have waited a month to make sure the unit operates as advertised. To say the least it works exactly as advertised It holds 28 bottles, keeps them at 54 degrees, is quiet, has a fine build quality, and a company who stands by their product and fixed their oops on the first call without question. What more could you want I would definitely buy this product again

How to remove smell.
SMELL REMOVAL: To remove the smell try wiping down with a 50/50 mixture of distilled white vinegar and distilled water. Before that I tried a week long newspaper, baking soda, airing out, wiping down process and they all helped, but not perfectly. After the white vinegar, wipe down with distilled,let air out with baking soda over night and you should be good.

I baught this wine cooler do a wineador and couldn't be happier the overall construction is good fit and finish is great. I can't believe how quiet this unit is if it wasn't for the digital temp display you would swear it wasn't on. Another great feature of this unit is the digital read out tempature display with simple touch panel controles. I could not be happier with this unit.

I could not resist buying this unit. The price is great. I did not need a dual zone wine cooler as I really just drink red. At first I was a little apprehensive about purchasing a Thermo-Electric unit, but it has been great. So far no problems. It is very quiet, and it looks great. The temperature is fairly accurate The Blue lighting is cool to look at.

This is the 2nd one I bought. They maintained the set temperature of 55F well in my basement even when the ambient temperature is about 48F. Other brands do not maintain set temperature when ambient is lower. The plastic has an odor and you need to air it out for a few days before use. Baking soda helps.

I would be very excited to see (and would certainly buy) a purpose-built cigar humidor based on the AW-280E, which should include a timer-driven low-CFM circulating fan, spanish-cedar shelves and temperature controls that range from 60 to 72 degrees Farenheit.

I purchased this unit to protect some very fine wines that had been in professional storage in Chicago. When delivered, it was very hot, due to sitting in the truck for most of the day. After setting it up, per instructions, I let it sit for 2 hours before plugging in. The initial temperature showed 78F. Twelve hours later, and fully loaded, the unit was down to 59F - admirable performance. It appears to maintain an even 57F in a room that is a fairly constant 74F. Only two very minor downsides: 1) Space for champagne bottles is so tight that one must be very careful when inserting or removing, and 2) it is quieter than a refrigerator, but noisier than a ceiling fan.

Very nice product for the price, quick delivery and responsive sales staff. Got mine cooler with a little leg problem, submitted the claim on-line and got the xmlnsnt pretty fast.

We purchased this unit to keep our growing collection of wine safe. So far, we are quite happy with the purchase. The unit has held a steady temperature, right where we set it. I have seen other reviews that expressed concern about the durability and noise the unit produces. However, we have no issues with either of these complaints. The unit seems to be well made (especially considering the price), and while it does produce a dull hum, it is by no means loud. We have owned the unit for 3 weeks, and thus far, are quite happy.

I reviewed many different brands, styles, etc of these Thermoelectric coolers and read nothing but horrible reviews. I found this one and it received nothing but great reviews at a lower price. I purchased for a cigar humidor and it works great and is very quiet. I have it at the highest setting and it consistently stays around 70 degrees which is exactly where I want it. Oh yeah, there is also an option to purchase the extended warranty which NO ONE else does. I am probably going to be purchasing another for my wine. I it is also a very beautiful product with a great blue light inside.

Purchased the New air unit #AW-280E for use as a cigar humidor. Unit holds accurate temperature and RH. More than enough storage space for my cigars. Unit is super quiet and you can't here it running at all. Unit did have the new plastic smell to it on the inside, but let the unit run for a week with the door open and the smell is gone. This is a great unit if anyone is looking to keep their cigars stored at perfect conditions. I'll be purchasing another in the future. Thanks.

Runs quietly, maintains temperature, and looks great. The only negative I can say is the blue LCD doesn't quite light up the unit as brightly as the one in the picture seems too. Still, the light works and the blue is a nice, subtle touch. That said, I couldn't be more satisfied, especially at the price!

This isn't the fanciest wine refrigerator out there, but it's also much less expensive than bigger models. I fit 28 bottles in easily, and the temperature never varies more than a degree. The only noise is a soft hum from the fan, but it doesn't stand out from all the other household electronic humms.

Delivered in two days! Easy to get set up. Took about 24 hours to reach max. Temperature which says 54 on the door of the unit but in reality registers 59 on thermometer inside the cooler. Blue lighting is pretty cool and if you slide bottles in with the labels at 9 and 3 you won't scrape them on the metal shelves. Would probably look at a compressor driven unit for my next one. But this one will work for the price.

Because of the possibility of earthquakes here, I put a bungi cord on the unit's door. The door stays shut and sealed fine, but an earthquake could upset it-- the only improvement I would recommend so far is some kind of door latch or lock for greater security for the door.

Excellent inexpensive little cooler
This is an excellent wine cooler for the price. It is quiet and unobtrusive; great for smaller spaces (check the dimensions). It does seem to vary in temp a few degrees (+/- 3 or 4 deg); I am not sure if that is due to the smaller size or the type of cooling mechanism. (it sits next to my larger ones that do not show varying temps) Due to the temp variations I don't keep my better bottles in this cooler but it works great for shorter term storage of my everyday wines. Larger bottles are a little tight but they do fit if you mix it up with standard sizes. Also, be careful not to lean against the door...I hit the tem controls every time! Customer service was GREAT!

This is a xmlnsnt unit. I initially bought the NewAir AW-280E Thermoelectric Wine Cooler in November 2009. It worked great for about a year, but then lost its ability to maintain the proper temperature; dropping to its coldest temperature. I contacted Customer Service and was advised to try unplugging the unit for a few hours to allow it to reset. This worked for a week or so, but the unit again started getting too cold. I again contacted Customer Service and they immediately offered to replace the unit even though it was now out of warranty (I had initially reported the problem within the warranty period). I have now had my xmlnsnt unit for 2 months and it is working as expected. Great unit and great customer service!

Shipping was prompt but one leg was loose and another missing. xmlnsnt legs were sent promptly. The plastic emits an odor as with other low cost wine coolers. Suggest cleaning with baking soda and airing out for a few days before using. Quiet unit with good temperature control and accuracy. Others may view the unit as cheap with lightweight plastic but its easy to carry down to the basement and expensive units do not perform any better.

Bought this to use as a cigar humidor, however, as of now I'm using it to store my reds. Temperature controller maintaining lowest temp of 54 degrees with no problem. Seems solidly built with some noise, but your talking a $175 cooler. Thought it would be big enough for my 100 count desktop humidors, but is too small. Overall I'm happy so far.

This product the wine cooler is an excellent buy. The only drawback is if my kitchen get very warm in the summer months the coolers temp goes up as well. Overall it is a good buy for the money.

All in all, though, I LOVE this little cooler! But the BIG plus was dealing with your company! After ordering online (an EASY process), your representative called the next day about a problem with my credit card information (sorry about that). She was terrific, we fixed the problem... and my cooler was in my house THE FOLLOWING AFTERNOON!!! I cannot express the delight I had with your efficiency! I've been telling everyone I see about it! Thank you for a great buying experience!

I use this product to store my cigars. Everything works great; however, I have had an extremely hard time getting the smell out of the unit. I have washed the unit several times using hot water and dish soap, but, the smell still remains. I hope that the smell will go away soon.

I'm using the wine cooler as an ager/humidor for cigars. It is working as advertised. No problems so far. I really liked the design of the cooler and the fact that it does not have a compressor, so is very quiet.

No major problems, but some minor ones such that spacing between racks are a bit tight for some bottles.

A little too noisy. Product is ok, don't like the sticker in the middle of the glass. Also the blue light doesn't light up the entire cooler. The purpose of the light is to be able to see which bottle you are grabbing without disturbing the others; this light doesn't allow for that.

Warm Whine
I hate to whine, but my wine frig won't chill our wine any cooler than 66 degrees. Why? I don't know. I have repeatedly reset the thermostat to 60. Still....66 degrees. I'm in the process of contacting the company to see what they're willing to do about it. We've only had the frig for a few months. Initially it worked fine and would cool to lower temps. One last complaint: the frig is fairly noisy for its small size.

The major issue is the fluctuation of temperature the other customers pointed out. I wish it would stop doing that and it never seemed to settle on the temperature we set.

Overall, a decent unit, especially for the price.

It may look nice, but the performance is what counts. It took 4 days for the temp to drop after I loaded it with the 28 bottles. From 76 it dropped to 56 the lowest and that's where is stuck after 12 days. I like my wine colder.

Barely cools the wine
Read the fine print on this one, and even at that - beware. My first surprise was that this will not go lower than 54 degrees. My bad for not reading the specs. But now that I've used it for a year, it's temp rises and lowers with the temp of the room. A 69 degree room = 54 degree wine cooler. BUT in the summer when the house gets to 78 degrees, the cooler is at 69 degrees! What good is that?

Great Looking Cooler, Slacks On Performance
I have recently bought this wine cooler brand new for an online retailer, it looks wonderful and has a sleek yet very modern design. This produces very very little noise compared to any other appliance in my home. I love this wine cooler...however, 3 days after use, there was a problem with the main control board or the led display. The numbers are all cut off as there are dead pixels on the display, so an 8 will show up as a 0 and a 6 will be a 5 and so on. The temperature works great, yet is cheaply built, I hope I just had a bad batch. Still use it to this very day and temp works great, just the display is very very off.

electric bill
It never got the temperature down to preset 55F. My energy bill went from the usuall 120$ to 220$. Is it worth it - I guess not. Stay away!

Question:
If the temp is set to 60F and and there is a power outage, will the set temp, when the power comes back be the same (60F)? or will it reset to a factory default?
- R K. on 2014-06-24
Answer:
While I am not sure what the temp would be after a power outage, it really doesn't matter because you can manually set the temp at anytime on the front of the unit quite easily.
- Timothy S. on 2014-06-24
