Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TheCorc Great basic model; tower chiller a must
This is a great basic model. I've had it for about a month and have run quite a few brews out of it. I strongly recommend purchasing a "tower chiller" because the tube in the tower gets warm and then the beer turns to foam. $40 investment is game changing. Also, be sure to purchase a cleaning kit for the lines and parts so that when you change a keg it does not taste funny. Wash all of the tubes in very hot water before using so that the beer doesn't taste like rubber tubing.
Set up is sort of a pain, the instructions are for their top of the line model so you need to just screw the tower on rather than twist and click together. I purchased a fish tank thermometer and stuck it inside the kegerator so I know how cold my beer is. I have it set at about 34.3 deg F, unreal temp! I messed around with the CO2 for about three days and finally set it at 11 psi which works great.
Overall, so far, great product for the price, but it is very worth it to add a tower chiller.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cmohle Nothing too complicated for our first kegarator
I was looking for a basic keg cooler for my husband. I don't know much about what's needed or involved but I liked that this model can accommodate a full keg. Also very convenient was that it came with everything we needed to get started. Setup was easy and straight forward. A month and a half later, we haven't encountered any issues. The only complaint I have is that upon removing the packing materials, we discovered a huge dent on the back left corner. Whatever ran into this also bent the caging that protects the motor. We had ruined the packaging unwrapping it and determined that the damage probably wouldn't interfere with its functionality, so we decided against the hassle of returning it and waiting for a new unit to be shipped. Still, disappointed my husband's birthday gift wasn't perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Saint4444 Great addition to any bar or kitchen. Looks very nice.
My husband loves his new kegorator. He put it together in less than thirty minutes, keg installed, and was drinking his first glass of beer in under an hour. I love the stainless steel, black combination. It looks sharp. The fact that I can purchase multiple size kegs is a huge plus. I bought a half barrel for the holidays.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BobW Does the job it was designed to do.
The unit arrived in less than a week and was in good shape. Set up was easy and straightforward. The directions were a little vague and did not match the equipment in a few areas, but, anyone with any general home maintenance experience will have no trouble. We were however missing one of the plastic inserts that holds the guard rail in place. Not enough to warrant returning the unit. We used the email contact us feature on the Danby website over 3 weeks ago and despite a reminder after two weeks no response... going to call them this week. Beer is cold and the unit does not seem to run a lot. We are happy with the selection.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DuffMan A+++++ Works great
Simply Amazing!!!! and thats not just the beer talking! It fits a normal keg even with the fat midsection. The only problem is the hoses are not that good. Remember to get some tephlon tape or it will leak and you may need some rubber gaskets/wahsers to help with the seals. Worked good after some messing around. Keep at 10 psi and you will be fine! A+++++++

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Perfect Pint Every Time
Happy Father's/Birthday to me!! Unbelievably easy to set up and was keeping the 1st keg cold within a couple of hours. I was looking at something with two taps for some variety, however we settled on this as the price was right and the flexibility to keep a couple of different 1/6s at the ready was enough. Great deal, great product. Perfect pint everytime.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BADMiller Amazing!
Bought this for my husband for his birthday. The only problem we had is the first unit came with only the refrigerator! Someone stole all the other parts! Not a problem, though, since HD took it back and we got a new one at a discount! Love HD. Anyway, this unit works like a charm! The beer is ice cold, just as it should be. We've had it 8 months now and no problems at all.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BHawver Decent product for the price...
I got this on sale and couldn't pass it up. I recently started kegging my home brew and this works perfectly for that. I had to buy a few parts to convert to the Cornelius ball-lock kegs, but with the parts that I ordered I can easily switch back and forth between a Sanke and the ball-lock kegs with ease. I will be changing out the tower to put a two-tap system in. This fridge easily holds two cornelius soda-kegs. It can, with modification accommodate three. My only complaint so far is the hole in the back for the CO2 is too small, but other than that the product is great so far. I can't speak to how long it will last, however, I've only had it a little over a month.
