Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HappyFloridians Best/Smartest Purchase Ever!
I purchased this kegerator for my newly married best friends. They have gotten quite a bit of use out of it in just a month and a half of owning it. I recently made a trip to their house, and I must say that this thing is amazing! Beer is ice cold and constantly flowing. I highly recommend this product to anyone in the market. The cost is extremely reasonable. If you are regularly spending money on beer to stockpile your refrigerator, you will save a considerable amount of money by making this purchase.

There's enough bad reviews on this kegerator, so let's set the record straight.. is it the best? No. Will you find better at the price with this capasity? No. I practically stole mine for $175 did my homework and this kegerator is awesome. Awesome enough that I took the time to build up a tap tower to allow me to house two sixth or two corney style homebrew kegs. Do your homework find it on sale and buy quality replacements for the CO2 issues. My tanks, regulators, or kegs don't leak; my beer is cold and I have a choice of what I want to drink. All for a amazing price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dingo38 $75 in upgrades makes this unit compare to $800 models
The regulator is garbage, threads have bits of chrome in them. mine showed up with the bezel behind the glass bent so the needle would not register I pryed the glass out and pushed the bezel back. I planned on replacing it anyway based on the other reviews. At this point it does work if you clean the threads out and make sure things get tightened properly. Amazon sells a nice replacement regulator for under $50 . Also, I noticed all of the high end units have circulation fans, so I added a axial 120v fan that sits on the shelf next to the co2 cyl. I simply ran double insulated wire through the drain hole on the shelf and wired it up. I found the fan on amazon for $17 double ball bearing, supposed to last 9 years. Thirdly I added a layer of foil covered insulating bubble wrap on the inside of the door as it could be better insulated. I used black Gorilla tape to mount it, looks like it came that way. The best part is that it is a 6 cubic foot unlike most , it will fit a rubberized keg that Miller and Coors sometimes use. If you use a full size keg, put a block of wood under your co2 cyl. to raise it up so you can see and adjust your regulator. When I called Home Depot about the regulator, they told me I had to package the whole thing up and return it to the store and wait for a new unit. I decided since I already had a tapped keg in it and made the junk regulator work, that was not going to happen. Half way through keg #2 and am happy thus far minus Home Depot could be more helpful.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gary Overall good purchase
Ok, I checked out all the reviews on this product before I made my purchase. I decided to buy it regardless of some bad reviews. First of all I was able to get the included 5lb. Co2 cylinder filled at a local discount liquor store. The included regulator is of very poor quality. I replaced it with a new one and also purchased a new 10 lb. Co2 cylinder. The 10 lb. size is more convenint to exchange. I use the 5 lb. for a spare. I also have no trouble with the thermostat. Some reviewers said they could not get the temp low enough. I have the thermostat set just over mid. And the temp is about 35 deg. So, in conclusion, this is not the most expensive beer cooler on the market and it showes, but for the price you can't loose. Buy one and throw a party this weekend. Cheers!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DeeDub REPLACE THE REGULATOR !
At first the Kegerator worked great. After a few weeks i noticed I had a co2 leak. Replace your co2 line with industry standard. I put 5/16 4 ' sections an also added a dual tap. Almost a month after I installed the dual tap, the regulator decided it was a good idea and go above my set pressure of 12 psi to 60 psi and over pressurize both my kegs of beer. I pour a beer its a foamy mess, both kegs are ruined.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MattC Good Buy
Works good, gets nice and cold. I keep it on the "min" cool setting because its so cold in there. Separately purchased a new co2 regulator and longer beer line. The regulator that comes with it is hard to adjust pouring pressure and the beer line is really short for what my research said is optimal. Overall happy with this product though.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by wadeisarunner pretty good item
This is an average item. It takes some time to figure out exactly which accesories are required to buy. While it is a Kegger and there are so many out there to pick from, this is an average one and for the price, it does it's job. Home Depot did a nice job of getting it to the warehouse (free shipping) and helping me to load it up to my truck. All a good experience.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Geo unhappy customer
Bought one last christmas to put in our new outdoor living area. Thought it was working at first, but think it was because it was cooler outside so beer tasted ok. Started to have foaming problems so started to try and figure out why. Noticed that cooler was running all the time. Then figured out that the beer was just warm. Started to look on line and saw all the problems for these kegerators and decide was not worth the time. Tried to return to homedepot 2 months later and said they would not take it back. Long story short I gutted plumbing and took a 1960 fridge that had been setting for 4 years and made into a kegerator. I have had no problems since and more compliments. If going to purchase one off these kegerator I would read all reviews first. Seems like they only last for a year or two on a good one.
