Eurocave and Kitchener are cheaper alternatives with excellent reputations, see the posts by the majority of satisfied members.
Transthern and Vintec have too many problems, cost an arm and leg to run due to inefficiency of their system. Look ok but do not live up to claims made by them, you would be better off storing whites in a normal fridge and reds anywhere with good humidy and stable temps.
I'm sorry but I disagree with your comments on Vintec. I have had mine for 4 or so years and havent noticed much change in the power bill at all.
It keeps at a constant temp all year round (minimal difference in really hot weather) and looks the part also.
We have been looking for and expecting a change in running costs but have been pleasantly surprised.
