Which is why I want to know if there's something fundamentally wrong with a Hisense design as opposed to paying extra for the Vintec brand name.
And thanks for the invite
I wouldn't have thought so. Difference is that Vintec and Transtherm deal mainly with wine cabinets while Hisense deals with a range of whitegoods and electronics.
Comparing it to the Vintec 35 bottle "fridge" that I have - the Hisense has a 3 year warranty vs the Vintec 2 year. Hisense fridge is right had door only, while the Vintec can be change to either left or right hand side opening. The Hisense is retailing at around $720-$740, while the Vintec is $520-$540, so it's around $200 more expensive but you're gaining 23 bottles over the Vintec model.
If you get it from Good Guys, there is a deal on now which allows you to claim 12% cash back on the purchase of this model by way of an "eftpos" card - so there's a further saving there. Problem is that the purchase has to be done by COB 24th April! (Today)
All in all it comes down to getting the best you can afford and based on the space you have available.
