Pros » A fridge is a fridge is a fridge, right? We look for a few things when test­ing cool­ing ap­pa­ra­tus, and the first is dura­bil­ity. We be­gan test­ing this unit ten months ago and it’s been run­ning con­stantly ever since, pro­vid­ing con­sis­tent cool­ing within a rea­son­ably tight tem­per­a­ture range and keep­ing beer at the per­fect cel­lar tem­per­a­ture (for us, 45°F, 7°C). An­other fac­tor in that dura­bil­ity equa­tion is shelf strength, and this is where the AB-1200B sep­a­rates it­self from other bud­get of­fer­ings—it has some of the strong­est shelves we’ve found, and while we’ve re­moved a num­ber of them to al­low us to stand heavy­weight 750ml cham­pagne-style bot­tles, the shelves have been able to with­stand the load with­out bow­ing or break­ing. The lock is a nice touch, too, at this price point. Cons » Oper­a­tionally speak­ing, we’ve found none. The Ver­dict » In what can seem like a generic cat­e­gory, the New Air AB-1200B of­fers wel­come fea­tures and re­spectable dura­bil­ity at an ac­ces­si­ble price point.
