What reviewers didn't like

The hinging of the door limits it to swing open in one direction only (opens to the right), which limits your options for placing it (although this wouldn’t really be a problem if you placed it atop a counter or used it as a freestanding unit). It seems as if it should’ve been a priority for the manufacturers to add an integrated lock to this unit, but it doesn’t have one.
It keeps temperature 5 degrees lower than what it is set
