Compact and as cold as you need it to be,
This review is from: Emerson 1.8 Cu. Ft Compact RefrigeratorIf you've ever tried one of those small thermo-electric plate refrigerators (as I have), you may have been disappointed by its cooling capability. Sadly, the technology that allows them to be so small also limits how cold they get. They can keep things cool, but they don't make things truly cold. So, if you like your milk to remain unspoiled and your drinks to be icy cold, compressor refrigerators are still the way to go. This Emerson CR180 compact refrigerator runs on a compressor system.
That said, let's start with what everyone wants to know first: How cold does this unit get?
I've had this refrigerator running for a week and these are the temperatures I've measured:
Setting number 6......4
Door..............34.....43 degrees Fahrenheit
Setting number 6 is the coldest. The manufacturer's guide states that setting number 3 should suffice for most... Read more

Perfect! Exactly what I needed!,

This review is from: Emerson 1.8 Cu. Ft Compact RefrigeratorThis things is exactly what I needed. I'm able to fit everything I need for lunch and still have room to pack it to its capacity. It keeps everything really cold on setting 4.5 of 6. I'm thinking it would freeze everything if I set it to 6. It fits perfectly under my cubical desk. It looks great. I don't hear it at all. I highly recommend this fridge to all.
I wish I could post a picture for you. Instead, to give you and idea of what this thing can pack, this is what I have in the fridge at all times:
1/2 gallon milk
1/2 gallon apple juice
1 quart coffee creamer
2 8oz of cream cheese
2 pounds of cold cuts
1 pack of sliced cheese
30oz bottle of mayo
40oz bottle of peanut butter
14oz of mustard
16oz bottle of salad dressing
20oz bottle of hot sauce
With this, I can still fit in two 6"X6"X4" Tupperware containers and probably three or four 12oz cans of drinks.

This is the one!,
This review is from: Emerson 1.8 Cu. Ft Compact RefrigeratorThere's already a solidly-detailed review on the product, so I won't make this long -- just want to add a short note. When I decided to buy a compact refrigerator for my bedroom, I expected it would take me 20 minutes to read a few reviews and get one on order. I was wrong. The handling damage reported by customers bespeaks a horrible track record, so I continued to search and discovered a department store web site that would help me track down this model to a local store. I picked it up last week. The unit on the shelf looked badly mauled. The unit was still in its container and I wouldn't buy that unit without having it unpacked at the store. They happened to have another unit in stock and brought it forward. With the packing in good condition I brought it home and plugged it in.
It's delightful -- quiet, cold, and the estimated annual cost, depending on your utility rates, is just $36 per year.
