I upgraded from a basic Frigidaire 50-bottle model from a warehouse store, and although this was a bit more in price, I'm VERY happy with the result. I wanted something low-profile that holds about 100 bottles, with a refined look, that fits multiple size bottles, and that allows me to browse easily through my selection (via smooth roll-out shelves). My old model was crammed, bottles scraped in/out, and the shelves didn't really slide, so it was a pain to stock it or browse through what I had. This new model is wonderful! I like that the side-by-side gives big capacity, but doesn't tower in my great room. I'm able to place things on top of this (cigar box, wine opener, decor) and it's not too ominously obtrusive in the room. I used the "towel-bar" door handles (it comes with two styles, and you can choose), and they look classy. Also, mine is black in color with wooden shelves -- it goes great with a Tuscan room theme and does not stand out too much. I can easily fit all types of bottles (tall riesling, wide pinot, regular bordeaux) on the shelves without trouble sliding in/out. For a few odd sizes (champagne), I use the big bottom shelves. Most bottles stack 11/per shelf, but some rare ones require different spacing side-to-side. Overall, no complaints. The shelves slide in/out easily, and it's a pleasure to browse for a night's selection of wine. I set one side cooler at 55 (white & light reds) and the other side warmer at 60 (bold reds). The fan airflow keeps the shelves fairly uniform in temp.
