I have had a Franklin (a brand I never heard of) for ten years. I paid about 1K for it and have never had a problem with it. It's not fancy, holds about ten cases of wine, has a glass door, wire racks that don't really slide in and out easily, but it's been functional and been a huge asset for me, especially when I lived in Louisiana for three years. It's now sitting in my basement, mostly empty as I use it for overflow for my cellar. I'm not sure a wine storage cabinet, unless you live somewhere that gets really hot for long periods of time, and you own a bunch of really expensive long agers, is really something to be overthought. That said, I have also been drinking, so discount whatever I say. Also, I am on vacation, which is why I am drinking in the middle of the day. Drunk. Sorry.
