Been working great for me for a month. Compact size allows me to fit it into a dead space in my garage area. Recommended for anyone looking to get compact fridge.
5 cubic foot compact refrigerator is not as easy as it sounds. And finding one with a stainless steel-style door is even harder. This was literally the only selection on amazon that met those specifications. While i had not heard of the brand before (spt), i ordered this as replacement for my aging 2. I am mostly pleased with the purchase. It is compact enough to fit under a desk, and is much quieter than the previous model it is replacing. It is also substantially lighter weight, although at around 48 pounds (shipping), it isn’t exactly a feather-weight either,at this size and price point, you don’t get many features. There’s no interior light (but you don’t need one anyway), and the freezer compartment is very small – just big enough for a small ice cube tray.
This little refrigerator is in our reception area, under the front desk. Packaging was perfect, out of box, ready to use.
At highest setting the motor runs forever.
Put a spa in my basement and bought this fridge for water and juice. Will not hold tall bottles and has a teeny freezer that has no value.
This fridge is great for a dorm room or other similar living situation. It’s pretty small and doesn’t take up too much space, but there is still enough room for essentials. The freezer compartment is inside the fridge and it is very small–i think i can fit in there a bag of frozen raspberries and a frozen veggie burrito, but that’s about it. Also, sometimes items kept on the top shelf of the fridge (next to the freezer) tend to freeze a little bit as well. However, overall it is good for the price and what it is.
- Great Little Fridge! Well, not so little
- Good compact fridge, although the door reversing process could be designed a bit better
- and has a good scale of cold to very cold
Quiet, cold, freezes everything at the coldest setting. Would reccomend for office, dorm, or family room beverage refrigerator. Freezer section is not huge, but works.
The little freezer compartment was a hassle (too small to be useful but you have to defrost it). Deeply disappointed that it only lasted 3 1/2 years.
The fridge works perfectly – it works no differently to the much more expensive full-size stainless steel fridge i have in my kitchen at home. It keeps everything cold, it’s compact, so it doesn’t take up much space in my office, it looks great and runs so quietly i don’t even notice it’s on. It can hold quite a lot of food & drinks considering it takes up so little room.
It’s been almost 2 years and have had no issues. Quiet, maintains my beer at 34 degrees on the 4 1/2 setting.
I use this refrigerator to store medication that needs to be at a very specific temperature. It’s been wonderful for the 6 months i’ve owned it. It runs relatively quietly (it’s in my bedroom), and has never disturbed my sleep. I use a thermometer to monitor the temperature in different parts of the fridge and it is always very consistent.

Quiet, clean, attractive and relatively lightweight for a 2. Plenty of room for cold drinks and some fresh veggies and yogurt for a college student with limited space.
I’ve had this fridge for about two weeks now and it’s been really great. I bought it for my office and mostly to prevent me from eating out, so i had a few criteria. First, it had to be fairly small footprint, but large enough to store a good amount of real food, such as leftovers, some fruit & veg, and materials to make snacks with such as pb&j. Second, it had to have a real compressor, one that will cool well below the ambient temperature as the office building gets quite warm in the summer and i really hate when food goes bad. Third, i didn’t want the unit to give up a bunch of space to a can delivery system, since i don’t drink usually have canned drinks around. So, that’s how i ended up at the spt, it’s the only one i found that fits all these criteria. I’d never heard of spt before buying this fridge and quite honestly, if it had the same features as all the other fridges i’d seen (researched for two weeks), i probably wouldn’t have bought it. However, given that it had everything i was looking for, i decided to take a chance and i’m glad i did. First, the aesthetics; it’s a vertical rectangular shape, modestly attractive looking, basically it looks like a small black fridge with a stainless door. I was a bit surprised at the size, it’s quite a bit taller than i was expecting and the black does makes it look a little monolithic.
1 year in, still keeping me office beverages cold.
Really can produce cold temps.
I was hesitant to buy, as experience with a small refrigerator before was dismal. It did not stay cool or keep food cool. This one is very good and would recommend it to anyone looking for an inexpensive well-working refrigerator. Luckily, before i purchased, i read the reviews and asked questions and got the answers i wanted, and so it is in my office now and i love it.
I love this little fridge except for the freezer part. I thought it came without a freezer section but it fits under my desk at work and it comes in handy to put my lunches and leftovers in without having to go to the big kitchen and community fridge. My cubicle mate and one other secretary both use my fridge too.
I really liked this refrigerator but then it stopped getting cold, had to replace it.
Big enough to store plenty of drinks and even a large size juice bottle.
Been using it in the office. Works great and has the right kind of room. I appreciate the freezer too.
It works well, enough said right?. The compartments on the side are perfect for bottles and there is tons of interior space. I use it in my small office of 3 employees and it suits our needs quite well. The stainless finish keeps it modern. I’m pretty happy with my purchase.
I use it at work to store water and my lunches. Have ordered two more for our other offices, no complaints, works great.
It works great for a little office. Great product no finger prints. Would suggest to others to purchase.
Reversible door with slide out wire shelf for storage versatility
A very sleek fridge, and has a good scale of cold to very cold, and it has shelves of different sizes that fit different needs. One kind of annoying thing about it is the ‘ting’ sound it occasionally makes. Also, the door shelf has this adjustable bar that rotates to fit larger items, however it will rotate when a small item pushes against it too – so an item will sometimes fall out upon opening the door (if not carefully packed). Overall, i am very satisfied with it though, and it is great quality for the price.
Keeps things very cold and fresh. I love the way the door can hold 2 liter bottles of soda perfectly and has a holder for cans near the top of the door. It has enough room to store everything i need as well. The ice box part keeps things, well, icy.
People kept stealing my lunch at work so i got this for my desk. Works great and i don’t have to go to jail for murdering my thieving coworkers 😉 the freezer is a little small, but i think that’s normal. Then again we have these annoying white noise generators (mind control machines) so that might mask a bit of any noise, but i really do feel it’s very quiet and keeps things properly chilled.
I purchased this fridge thinking that there was not a ‘freezer’ compartment but it does. However, i really like the stainless steel look. This fridge has wired shelves versus tempered glass, which i think is better for sturdiness. It’s kept in our main conference room for cooled beverages.
This will be the perfect size for my son’s upcoming dorm room. It is efficient and works wells.
I’ve built-in this refer in an outdoor bbq feature. It looks great and works as advertised.

The wife bought me one of these primarily to keep water cooled out at my boatshed on those long hot summer days here in florida. Funny thing is that it keeps all sorts of other good tasting fluids cooled also beer, soda, lunch. This summer temps toped out around 101 and it kept everything nice and chilly.
I’ve had this for over a month now and it’s perfect for my game room. I fit at least 30 regular sized beer bottles in here and some 32 oz powerade bottles in the door. The fridge has kept everything cold. Doesn’t distract me at all from my game watching or video game playing. 1) i wish there were more options with where to put the shelves. One shelf pretty much only goes in one place and the other has one other location. 2) the freezer in the top is open to the fridge so anything that doesn’t directly touch the metal part of it, doesn’t stay frozen.
Works great but i hate that nothing really fits in it because if the shelf inside. . Should only be used for small cokes and ice box is useless.
Have had for about a year with no issues.
After my son was born, we wanted a mini fridge for the bedroom so that my husband wouldn’t have to run downstairs to get milk out of the fridge in the middle of the night. It quickly got upgraded to also storing bottles of water and fraps. It does a wonderful job at keeping everything nice and cold. The interior space is rather spacious. We typically have around 12 fraps, 15 bottles of water and one or two bottles in the fridge at all times with room to spare. Some people have complained that this fridge is loud but i don’t agree. Whenever the compressor turns on, of course you can hear it, but it’s not very bothersome and doesn’t wake up our baby despite being 5 feet away. The stainless finish looks good and doesn’t seem to get fingerprint smudges which is great. I want to point out that the description of the product is incorrect. It mentions that it comes with a transparent vegetable drawer with a glass shelf which isn’t true.
I bought this little appliance to provide refrigeration to my office staff who likes to store personal lunches and beverages each day. It’s in a small conference room that’s in constant use for meetings of 4-6 people. Noise is negligible and my staff appreciates the well-designed cool storage.
Transparent begetable storage drawer with glass shelf
It keeps all my beverages really cold. It stores quite a bit of drinks through well-designed placement of shelving.
Still working after one year of use. If you turn the dial to 5 out of 6 it gets so cold it will freeze everything inside so it has no issues cooling. Past mini-fridges have always died on me in short order and never really cooled that well. This one is far outperforming most others.
This little fridge is a top performer. I received it 2 days after my order and it is better than i could have hoped. Beautiful stainless steel door looks like i paid much more for the appliance. I live in las vegas and this keeps my food ice cold, freezer keeps frozen food frozen. I’ve had lesser models that allowed my freezer items to thaw, not the case with this mode. Finally, its whisper quiet so as not to disturb me. I have it under my credenza right behind my desk chair, don’t even notice when it cycles on.
I bought this last september and have been using very well. There’s some frost on freezer as well, i tryed defrost and poked on freezer. There’ was whi-whi- sound and i checked i’ve made a small hole on freezer plate. Can i take kine of after service of it?.I want keep using this more.
Looks great and kept everything i put into it very cold. I recommend this product, it was perfect for my husbands man cave.
Well built, and best of all, it’s quiet and keeps things cold. The little freezer tray is great and does a good job of keeping things frozen. I am using it under my desk at my office and it’s running like a champ. Had it for 4 months so far and no issues whatsoever. Built like a tank and surprisingly roomy.
I keep it under a table in my tiny office and i rarely hear the motor. Does what it is supposed to.
If you buy another refrigerator, well. . I don’t know why you’d buy another refrigerator. Small, inexpensive, attractive, quiet and very cold. That’s about it in a nutshell.
A great mini fridge for storing cold drinks like beer and sodas.
