Should I buy this wine fridge?

I am trying to improve my hatch rates (from 60-70% to 80+%, hopefully), and several folks in my "improve my hatch rate" thread suggested storing eggs at 50 degrees. So I just checked out wine coolers on craigslist and came across this one:

http://charlotte.craigslist.org/for/1406611911.html

It holds six wine bottles--I'm thinking it would hold way more than enough eggs to fill my little Hovabator (but then, I want to buy a 96-egg incubator from cbiblis when he's got one ready for me with the electronics jazzed up...). Is it worth whatever hatch rate improvement it might allow? And should I offer a lower price? And how much does it cost to run these? I assume *cooling* air usually costs more electricity than *heating* it, so its running cost will probably be more than my incubator. On the other hand, it probably won't run as much as the incubator does.

Any thoughts?

prepair to buy a thermo. My wine cooler has a hysteresis of 10 degrees (28- 38 degrees) but thermos are cheap for cooling. A fridge\\freezer repair shop will have a thermo to fix that for 8 bucks. They are plug and play. I say buy it.
