Rated 5 out of 5Â by mikemx5419 Great kegerator for the money...
As I stood in the the store debating to buy or not buy I read online reviews on how terrible this product is... Not getting cold enough being the main issue... Although their packaging could use work I see no issues with the temp.. It took me a few days to get the temp where I wanted it but I could freeze a cup of water on the medium setting. A couple small dents in the door not really a show stopper for me... Other main complaint issue with instruction manual... Honestly I put mine together without ever opening it so not sure what kind of folks are having issues.... EBay the co2 tank and put your $$ towards a 10 or 20# tank of course it will have to sit outside the unit but there is no restrictions on where you bring your gas line in the coils are easily seen inside the fridge... Buy this product without worry! Cheers!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Kayakguy40 Works as advertised but be aware of a few things
This unit is pretty straight forward, it keeps beer cold. I use mine in a garage without AC, not in direct sunlight. It keeps a solid 43 to 45 degree temp. I'm sure it could go colder in my house. For the price and value I took the opinion I was buying a keg sized fridge that just happened to be supplied with a bottle, tap and regulator. It works but be aware of a few things.
1. go ahead and buy a 20lb bottle from Airgas or your local gas/wielding supply store. It lasts longer and almost no one has the 5 lbs for exchange. Not much money, I think I exchanged mine for $24. Do this when you order the unit because they don't ship bottles with CO2 in them and you'll have one ready go when it arrives.
2. This unit comes with a standard "D" sankey (tap) which is for American beers, if you like European beers those kegs require an "S" sankey, Germans use an "A" and Guinness uses a "U".
3. very important- test your system for leaks. While $15 to 20 for CO2 isn't the end of the world if there is a leak it can get pricey and inconvenience as most suppliers aren't open on weekends. I used a 5 gallon bucket full of water and immediately noticed a leak from the PSI gauge itself, not the connection. I turn the system off between pours while I'm waiting on another gauge to show. If the new gauge from Igloo leaks, I'll go and buy a nicer quality regulator from a supply store.
All in all, I'd rather they sold unit without the tap and bottle for less money but its still a good value.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Steve Terrible Quality, have to return it.
The CO2 tanked leaked out after three days. When I assembeled it per directions I used Snoop to leak check my connections. On second CO2 fill I found leaks from the factory regulator at the dial gauges and the pressure release pin.
The tank twist valve does not seal closed under normal hand pressure.
The fridge makes very strange sounds and doesn't get under 43 degrees. And thats inside the house in December.
This is my first kegerator and it stinks! I am just going to build my own with quality parts.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by upsetwithkegerator horrible
This unit is horrible. Spent an hour trying to get the connections to both the CO2 and the keg to stop leaking. Never happened. I am so mad right now. Now I have to lug this thing back to Home Depot for a refund or run around town spending $$ on parts to replace the bad ones included with this fridge.
Also, doesn't get cold. Who wants 43 degree beer????
MUCH better units out there for similar pricing or a little more. Bad decision to buy this product.
