1 of 4

After analyzing tens of thousands of opinions on mini fridges, there is one thing that is very clear: the noise level is crucial. 20% of all opinions on mini fridges discuss whether or not the unit is quiet, and when it isn't - it makes users really unhappy. People usually buy a mini-fridge for three main places:

  1. Dorms
  2. Offices
  3. Mancaves

In each case, you could see that the space in which the mini-fridge is located is relatively small, and that is the main reason why noise would be an issue. If you're sleeping in a dorm room within several feet of your mini fridge, you don't want the compressor noise to stop you from sleeping or studying right before a major exam. If your mini fridge is beside you in the office, noise can be very distracting and even embracing if you're having an important meeting or a phone conference call. And if your mini fridge is keeping the beer cold in your man-cave, it'll certainly piss the guys off when they can't hear themselves thinking in the middle of a card game because of your noisy fridge. So clearly, when it comes to mini-fridge and the locations it usually placed in, a quiet mini fridge is a must.

Even though noise level seems to be the #1 significant characteristic for consumers, it's one of those things that's impossible to figure out before the fridge is actually working in your apartment, office or dorm. And by then, it may be too late. That is the reason, opinions are the only resource for sorting the quiet mini fridges from the noisy groaners.
