Overall, I like this unit, however there area couple of minor things. I love that I could put the same cabinet fronts as the rest of the kitchen, making it nearly invisible. However, I have to really slam the door shut in order for the unit to recognize that it is closed. Frequently I get up in the morning to find that the trash did not compact, because the unit thought the door was ajar. I love the timer feature. When I do get the door closed right, the unit compacts at 3 am for a few hours, then the compactor relaxes by the time I get up in the morning. I never find myself unable to put trash in because I am waiting for the compactor arm to retract. I like the feature of the odor destroying disc. However, the scent of that disc is itself offensive. I wish it had holes in the case for me to affix it to the cabinet. The unit slides around, and I reposition it often, probably because I have to slam the door each time. Also, the timer is great, but it would be nice it if had a capacitor or battery do that it could retain settings when the power goes out. And if it knew daylight savings time changes, that would be cool too. I have to reprogram it at least twice a year and whenever the power goes out. I like that it has a cubby for storing bags, and the bags are easy to change.
