I have run out of room! Looking around at easy solutions (and no I don't want a cooler or Tupperware) I found this guy but, am unfamiliar with the product.
Anyone have any experience with Whynter?
Whether you are a true cigar aficionado or a casual enthusiast, the Whynter CHC-251S Stainless Steel 2.5 cu. ft. Cigar Cooler Humidor is an ideal cigar storage system that can help preserve the flavor of your cigars and protect them from pests or other harmful conditions.
The Whynter CHC-251S is designed to help store and age cigars within the optimal humidity range 62% to 75% at room temperature. This cigar cooler humidor contains a humidification tray (for use with preferred solution/moisture beads) and equipped with an elegant analog hygrometer which helps monitor the desired level of humidity.
Having a temperature controlled environment is also critical for discouraging the proliferation of any pests that may be present in the tobacco leaves. The thermoelectric cooling system used here minimizes the drying effect when cooling, relative to the compressor based cooling systems in many refrigeration units.
Furnished with four Spanish Cedar flat shelves and two spacious drawers, the Whynter CHC-251S helps maintain humidity, emits a light complementary aroma, and helps repel damaging insects.
In addition to its main purpose of storing, preserving, and aging cigars, the Whynter Cigar Cooler Humidor is also an attractive and elegant showcase for your prized collection.

My wife picked me up a similar unit a couple years back and I am very happy with it. I especially like the climate control as it can get pretty warm here in the summer. I dont know that particular model you mentioned but the spec's on it look good.
Whynter is one of the top brands in the space along with Koldfront, Vinotemp, and Newair. I have a Newair myself and it works well. 2.5 cu ft seems pretty small. Mine's about 6 cu ft and it will probably hold 400 cigars max. However, it's a nice looking unit and not a bad price.
I found I couldn't fit as many cigars in my wineador as I thought, not even close to my table humidor, so when I buy another storage unit it will either be another table or a tower like that. Good luck!! can't go wrong either way they both look very nice.
Thanks Nick but, the largest Whynter I have found is the 2.5 cubic foot one pictured above. While this would handle my overflow I am afraid it would soon fill to capacity. The others are just too small and I hate to 'dig' to find a particular cigar. It looks like the tower is the only viable option for me......... Now to work on the wife (who just spent $800 on furniture for our new lounge) to spend some more money....
I know this thread is a little old, but I just wanted to update by saying I just pulled the trigger on this unit. Found a smoking deal on bestbuy.com. Free shipping, and using the promo code November20, you get 20% off. I paid 247.99 after sales tax!
