Avanti Undercounter Deluxe Beverage Center
I was looking to replace an old 18" trash compactor. I could not find any beverage center to fit into this spot. This 15" beverage center was the closest fit with the best look. The glass is tinted just enough. The glass shelves are much nicer than other shelves that drinks fall over. The drinks are kept cold. The light looks cool (blue), however you have to unlock the panel to turn on the light. It stays on for 10 mins. The center does make a constant noice. I think its the fan running, but that keeps the drinks at a constant temp. I would like more tracks for the shelves so that I could adjust for my type of drinks better. Overall I really like it. Much better than the useless compactor.

all as expected, just a little too deep
We bought this beverage fridge to replace a failed under counter Scotsman ice maker. One of the few that fit the 15" wide opening. All works fine except it is just a little too deep and sticks out about two inches of fridge and another inch of it's handle into our island's walkway. Our island is standard cabinets back to back. Only product complaint is the interior light. According to instructions, the panel buttons must be unlocked to turn it on and it reverts to being locked after a few minutes. Having one button for the light would be better than having to 1st press two at the same time and then the light button. Net result is that the light is not being used. Otherwise, after a month we have found this is a fine product for intended cold beverage use.

Do not purchase
We purchased this unit less than two years ago. It never (repeat never) cooled properly to the advertised temperature. It would cool bottled water ok, but not pop cans or beer. The unit started icing up inside around the fan within a year. We had a repairman come out to fix, but the unit would still not cool properly. The unit then stopped working altogether and wouldn't get below 60 degrees inside. We probably owned the unit for 22 months, and used this product for half of that time. The other half of the time the unit was turned off because it wasn't working. I finally yanked it out of the house, took it to a repairman for an autopsy, and the repairman said it would be too expensive to get it running again. I cannot even call this unit poor quality because it never worked, let alone as advertised. And guess what, no company support, replacement, or refund.
